Under the direction of new owner Frank Dougherty, the legendary Knife & Fork has just completed an extensive renovation aimed at restoring and enhancing this Atlantic City landmark. 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. The Dougherty family, owners of the other Atlantic City dining landmark, Dock's Oyster House, invite you to visit them at their newest location

The lunch was a good value. The food was delicious and the white table clothes at lunch were a nice touch. Heidi was a pleasant and attentive server. This place never disappoints.

Drinks at bar .....awesome. This was our third time dining here. We recommend to friends. Sadly not anymore. Surf was tasteless turf should have been stamped NHL for puck. His sirloin was seasoned or grilled with Parmesan cheese YUCK. The signature corn crab soup. Lucky if you found crab...served luke warm with hard old potatoes. This was Thursday night 7/12/18. Manager and Kate our waitress were terrific. I feel bad ....the kitchen let us all down.

There fairly early, 5:30pm reservation and was seated on the 3rd floor. Found it difficult to go up two flights of narrow stairs, worse if I wore heels. Though we had wonderful service and meal, I do not think we will be back unless there’s an elevator or they have table seating on the first floor. I did not see either.

My husband and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary while visiting Atlantic City. We recently watched “Boardwalk Empire”, so I was looking for a restaurant of that period. We had a drink at the bar, and then were seated in the Main Dining Room beneath a prohibition-era mural depicting a speakeasy. Our waiter, Casey, was terrific! He was knowledgeable of the history of the building, even showing us where booze was hidden under the booth seats during Prohibition. The food was amazing. I had Lobster Thermidor for the first time. Divine! My husband and I agree that this was the nicest dining experience we’ve ever had!

Had a lovely evening with wonderful friends at Knife and Fork this July 6, 2018. We had last minute reservations at 6:45 pm on a Friday night and we were seated promptly! Our waitress was wonderful on this busy summer evening and very patient with our need to relax. The food was excellent and at no time did we feel rushed but were able to catch up with friends and enjoy dinner and drinks.
After our meal we sat at the bar and enjoyed our after dinner drinks and we will be back very soon!
Special thanks to Tim the bartender for his conversation and service!

We were anxious to try the Knife and Fork as we frequent Doc's Oyster House often and knew Knife and Fork was owned by the same folks. Quite a disappointment....high prices, mediocre quality of appetizers, entrees and wines. Ambiance was nice....nice leather bound menus, beautiful wine glasses, overall feeling of the restaurant was enjoyable.

I have been here on several occasions, including two Thanksgiving dinners and everything has been wonderful from food to drinks. However I must admit that I was disappointed in my entree at my last seating. I ordered the 8 oz filet mignon and it was short of sub par. It was bland and dry and lacking in flavor. Not what I expected from Knife and Fork as I have had several amazing dining experiences here before. Everything else was wonderful as usual, including the wait staff.

It was my husband's birthday and I guess I was used to a comped dessert especially since this is a expensive restaurant . What he got was a candle plopped onto on dessert which we paid for I do think when the tab is well over $100 the restaurant could spring for more than a candle
maybe a cookie or something small but thoughtful
bread did not taste fresh and climbing up steps to third floor was asking alot
We are very fit seniors, some would not be able to handle it
probably will come back for happy hour

Terrible. So disappointing. Bar counter was dirty. Bartenders and hostesses couldn't be less friendly. Food is so pricey and so average. So many good choices at the Shore this isn't worth the stop.

We always wanted to try it, so we gave it a try! The bartenders were not very friendly, which was surprising. Our server, who was from Ireland, was fabulous. Very sweet and gave us lots of suggestions. She didn't rush us either. The sommelier helped us pick a great wine for a very reasonable price! The food was delicious, and the building is very unique inside! We would go again!
