Featuring a brand new, state-of-the-art kitchen, expanded bar and lounge area, as well as ocean views from the main dining rooms, the Knife & Fork is once again the place to see and be seen in Atlantic City. The Knife & Fork's new menu, featuring the finest steaks and seafood prepared on a wood-fired grill, is complemented by an extensive wine list and 10,000 bottle wine "cellar." The Knife & Fork is now offering lunch every Friday from 11:30-4:30 pm. It's the perfect spot to celebrate the end of the work week or get a jump start on your weekend.

I fell in love with this restaurant the minute we were seated. The decor of an old speakeasy brought me back to memories of my mom who frequently visited them. The waiter was delightful. Knew a lot about the history of this building and was 100% attentive to our dining pleasures. The food was absolutely decadent, from presentation to taste. I would highly recommend this restaurant to all my friends and relatives that visit in Atlantic City.

Went to the Knive & Fork growing up and it still lives up to its reputation as a great restuarant.

The food was excellent but our server was even better. Our group was one of the last out of the restaurant and he took the time to tell us about the history of the building, show us a few of its secrets, and recommend other spots in Atlantic City.

I was pleasantly surprised with my experience here. I arrived 30 minutes before my reservation time, so I had a drink at the bar on the first floor. Very nice, and even the patrons were helpful with one offering their seat at the bar. We went up to the third floor for dinner which was quiet at 5:15. Just what I was looking for. The waitstaff was knowledgeable and helpful with dinner and wine selection. Food was great. The slab bacon for one of our appetizers is definitely a repeat performer! Our sirloin steak were seasoned and cooked to perfection. I will be a returning customer!!

We have been to the Knife and Fork many times and have never been disappointed. This is why we took a very good friend and her husband for her birthday! The evening was excellent and exceeded our expectations.

Very nice but tight quarters....dining patrons arriving after seated were adorned with OVER POWERING cologne in which we both felt ruined our pallets. Our saluted Soft shell Crab appetizer presentation was impressive but we could not experience their true flavor due to the obnoxious amount of cologne worn by our neighbors. We each ate 1/2 our main entree and took the rest home. Desert was delicious. Needless to say, our “cologne-free” leftovers next day were awesome! I’d still go back.

My wife and I have been talking about going here for a long time and we finally went for our anniversary last Friday. The historic look and inside was my favorite part. It looked like a restaurant for a Sopranos show or Boardwalk Empire inside. It was old school but very classy! Our waiter was very nice and on the ball. The food overall was good but could have been better. They give you one roll to choose out of sour dough, multigrain or cranberry nut. The rolls weren't that impressive and you only got one. My corn and crab chowder soup was tasty but it's better at Bonefish which is a bit of a surprise. My Seafood Risotto meal was very good and i enjoyed it. My main complaint is my wife's filet was ordered medium and it came out medium well, some parts even looked well done. She didn't want to send it back or complain because they would have had to recook another one. I tried a couple bites of hers and it was weak. I expect better quality especially for the prices you pay in this restaurant but overall we had a decent experience. I'm on the fence whether i would go back again or not.

The food was not great. We have been to the restaurant several times and were always thrilled with the food but Saturday it was average. One of our guests had to return his bronzino due to it not being fresh. We were a party of 8 and our servers were great and very attentive.

Historic Atlantic City spot. First time visit even though I am lifetime NJ resident. I had their signature dish, lobster thermador, which was excellent. Other dishes we had were all enjoyed, crab cakes, colossal crab meat salad, pork chops. glancing at other tables the scallops look like what I will order next time. Steaks looked awesome also. Have to save my dollars up, because it is a bit pricey.

We initially were seated at a table in the bar area, we could not even hear our waitress suggest the specials it was so loud. Since we celebrating a special occasion, we asked to have our seat changed so we could at least hear each other talk. The table was changed to a nicer room ( with multiple empty tables, so not sure why we weren't seated in that room initially)- they were very accommodating with our request. The service and food was excellent!

Amazing, this restaurant actually surpased its reputation. Our Amazing experience started as we drove up to the establishment, and was graciously greeted by a friendly parking valet. Then a few steps later a charming & courteous hostess, ushered us to comfortable, & cozy quarters. Almost immediately the superior service started. Our waitress "Sandy" was heaven sent, saying she was outstanding would be an understatement. I ordered the cowboy steak, my companion the seafood
rostto, our palates partook of peerless perfection. Please don't pass on the appetizers they also where Amazing. " The Quality of an expenditure will be remember, long after the cost is forgotten". Our Amazing affair at the knife & Fork is forever sealed in our appetite's archives. Amazing, I thanked God for an excellent ending of an extraordinary day.

THIS IS ONE OF THE OLDER ATLANTIC CITY RESTAURANTS THAT HAS BEEN IN BUSINESS SINCE 1912. OUTSIDE OF THE CASINO RESTAURANTS THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO EAT IN THE CITY. IT HAS THE OLD WORLD CHARM ACCOMPANIED BY GOOD FOOD AND GREAT SERVICE. A BIT PRICEY, BUT WORTH THE EXTRA ESPECIALLY FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS.
