Classy, great food, great service. Out of the hustle of the casinos, free from that smoke masked air, a gem in the grime of Atlantic City.

Wonderful meal- highlights include the seafood risotto, pomme fritte, and tuna tartar- Daniel and Corinne did a good job keeping our water glasses filled, clearing the table and ensuring that we had what we needed. We’ve eaten here before over the years but this was our best experience yet.

We come to the Knife and Fork every year during the convention. It's very special in its history and a hit when you entertain a customer. Service is always very good. We were seated on the first floor in the bar area, was pretty noisy. Highly recommend a visit here while in Atlantic City.

This was a special treat for my husbands 80th Birthday. It is one of his favorite places. There were seven of us and we all agreed it was a fabulous evening. Being a Sunday it was not too busy and our server Casey gave us the whole history of this wonderful building. He and his "helper" were excellent and a great time was had by all !!
Thank you so much

We really had a great time at the Knife and Fork. The food is outstanding, but we enjoy the people that work there as well. The waiters, waitresses, and bartenders are always so polite and efficient at what they do. Such an easy atmosphere to be around! We highly recommend Knife and Fork to anyone who enjoys a great night out with top notch food and drinks. What more could you ask for??

Went with my Girlfriend for a date and it was incredible. The food was great and the service was so good! The owner even checked up on us and asked us how our meal was! It was a bit later in the evening so it was not crowded and we had a wonderful seat and incredible experience. She ordered the 8oz filet mignon and I ordered a cider glazed pork chop with mashed sweet potatoes. Both were prepared well and probably one of the best meals either of us has ever had. I know it sounds like I am hyping this place up but it really was a great dinner and a great experience. Thank you Knife and Fork Inn!
