Bent Fork Grill - Aurora Ratings and Reviews
The last time I went here was for my Brother's rehearsal dinner (20 years ago). I had forgotten about this place until my daughter sent me a gift certificate for Christmas. What was I waiting for? Great food, tremendous service and reasonable pricing. You don't know what you are missing with this place. Just a bit hard to find, but well worth it.
I never ate here before, I had the fish tacos and I did notvluke them at all. Pricey and the house salad had limp romaine lettuce and was very small for 4.99. I will never eat here again. My friend liked her burger and another friend liked her pasta but everyone agreed it is too pricey and the food is not worth the prices. 2 of us got the tacos and we both hated them. Their salsa is very strange too and we didn't care for it
Have lived in Aurora for 30+ years and have driven past this place hundreds of times. So glad we finally went, will definitely go back. Great service and food! Food is a bit pricey for a neighborhood restaurant but worth it for the service, taste, and close location.
We thought it might be a bit more upscale so we dressed up but found that it was more casual.
The menu was great, everyone enjoyed there food and the martinis and mixed drinks were fine.
Our waiter, Deshawn was attentive, friendly and not to invasive. We had a table for 6 and it was a bit loud with three birthdays being celebrated around us and the singing staff. We have visited the northern Colorado restaurant and felt it was more of a special destination restaurant so we were a bit disappointed in the casual, busy atmosphere of the restaurant in Aurora.
So the food was good, but...the Caprese appetizer was missing the basil and olive oil, the kid's cheeseburger was missing the cheese, the taco entree was missing the pico, and the NY Strip was about a 1/4 inch thick. So we left feeling like we had kind of half a dinner.
Service was very nice and attentive, but Back-Of-House operations lacking.
One of our favorite local restaurants! We don’t typically bring our kids and prefer to go for date night, but we had our kids with us this last time and they loved the food as well. It has a great neighborhood feel without being a kid restaurant. That said, the kid menu is pretty typical (Mac and cheese and chicken tenders) so we chose to order their food from the regular menu instead. It would be lovely if the kid menu included smaller portions of the regular menu instead of predictable “kid menu” that picky gets get. The regular menu is just too good to miss.
Our visit was in honor of my wife's birthday. My two daughters were in our company.
Was more than surprised to learn that you did "nothing" for birthdays. That seems
utterly weird to me. The waitress is the one that used the term "nothing." I won't be
back for any more birthday celebrations since you don't even offer a dish of ice cream
or a bit of cake. I won't be back for birthdays - for sure!
My date and I enjoyed the casual elegance. It is so refreshing to go to a restaurant that is not noisy. Food was terrific as was the service. The salmon fish & chips was mouthwatering, -can't wait to have it again! What a treat to have this restaurant right in the neighbohrood.
none of the above were checked. the service would be the only reason to give a positive comment about the Bent Fork. The food was over cooked,over spiced,the veg were not appealing to look at an thus we did not eat them. I may come back one more time but never a special occation.
I sent an e-mail compliment to the GM (W. Silva) after lunch with my dear friend this day.
I expressed how many occasions this year I have eaten at the Bent Fork. Once again, this
lunch was an "applause," and I look forward to dining at the Bent Fork in 2018.
Go to the Bent Fork!
WOW! There was nothing about this experience we did not enjoy. From the minute we walked in, we were greeted with a warm smile and immediately seated. Our waiter, DJ, came over, introduced himself, and began setting down drink napkins. He noticed the paper napkins were rumpled and decided they weren’t satisfactory enough to be placed on the table. He is, without a doubt, one of the best waiters we’ve ever encountered. There were four of us and he showed each of us equal attention throughout the meal. Every plate we ordered, with his help because we hadn’t dined here before, was absolutely delicious and the portions were more than sufficient. We had salmon, spicy sausage pasta, black and blue pasta, and a rib eye sandwich. For dessert, we split a flourless chocolate cake and a brownie with vanilla bean ice cream. Both were decadent without being overly rich. Throughout the meal, we kept commenting how awesome everything was, as we ate off each other’s plates, and how amazed we were because we’re all so incredibly picky. On top of an already wonderful experience, the tab for the meal was so reasonable. Including a 25% tip, we payed less than my husband and I have paid elsewhere for just the two of us and not enjoyed ourselves as much. I can’t say enough great things about this place!
We always enjoy the Bent Fork! The food is great, but their portions are growing smaller and the prices...are not! We were celebrating a birthday with a party of five and the place was not super full, however one other party of four got seated within touching distance when there were other seating options. I felt like we were all struggling with conversation because of how closely we were seated.They are not the only restaurant to do this though. Everything else was good!
On business travel and staying last night at the airport hotel. We “found” this little gem last trip and retuned for our second time. The menu has a good variety and the service is friendly and prompt. I have had a different pasta dish each time and thoroughly enjoyed both. Salmon blt and salmon ish and chips were a hit with colleagues. Looking around at other tables all the food looked great. Obviously a neighborhood gem, it’s located in a nondescript strip mall but don’t be fooled. About 15 minutes from the airport. Highly recommend.
We have been frequenting The Bent Fork for several years and absolutely LOVE this place! We have never had a meal we didn't like, the staff & wait staff are GREAT!! Wonderful neighborhood Bar/Restaurant!! Our friends we dined with loved the Fork as well! We would always recommend dining at the Bent Fork to family, friends & strangers👍🤗!!
P.S. The only way I could like it more would be if you brought back that FABULOUS Reuben sandwich!!!
Surpisingly great food, at a restaurant in a shopping strip. I had a pork chop with great spicy chutney sauce, accompanied by flash-fried brussel sprouts and a delicious potato side. My wife had a fish dish. Both were truly outstanding. Far better than expected. We would definitely come back next time we're in town.
The Bent Fork Grill always had a large selection of interesting creations and traditional dishes. Have been to the Loveland location as well and always had well prepared, flavorful food with plenty of variety available to please most everyone's tastes. Quality, well prepared, and flavorful food are the most important elements to me, and I was not disappointed here. Also, my date was hot.
