Welcoming residents as well as visitors to the area, Forge & Vine offers a strong sense of place with a design sensibility that brings in the outside with floor to ceiling windows offering breathtaking pastoral views of Gibbett Hill.

We were in the room with the fireplace. I think it’s usually just a screen room during warmer weather. They had radiant heaters to keep the room warm. It was lovely. The food was great. Service was excellent. A very pleasant evening all around. I highly recommend.

Food was great as always. Service was slow and a bit innatentive, but it was a little busy that night. The first time we went there the service was horrendous and rude, so this was a big improvement.. but a little pricey for it to be lacking. Would definitely still go back as everything was very tasty.

Overall the food quality was very good and the service was friendly. One area of improvement was that we were given an order of a veggie burger with bacon added, which we had not ordered. Perhaps this is something to be careful of in the future, especially given vegetarianism.

It is sometimes difficult to find a moment to spend time with family due to our schedules. Hence we were quite pleased to secure a table last minute at Forge and Vine. We were able to catch up with fine food and superb service. We were able to concentrate on conversation and enjoy our dinner, because of suggested menu items and staff anticipating our every need. What more can you ask for on a cold winter evening?

We reserved a table, and when we arrived it had been assigned to someone else. Supposedly there is an acceptable 15 minute delay, which was not respected. Very disappointed at this point, otherwise everything was perfect!

Nice evening in side room with fireplace. Joe was our server, pleasant and did a great job. Meals were good chicken Milanese, half chicken, short rib. Two people shared ribeye dinner for two which was disappointing especially for price. Sides seemed sparse for two, meat was dry and a big portion of it was bone, not enough meat for two men. Bill was over $400 including tip which would be ok if it was better.

One of my favorite restaurants in the North Worcester County! I'm never disappointed or unsatisfied with F&V! Their menu always has something delicious and there's always something new! If you're from the area or just visiting this place is a must!

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at the Forge & Vine on Christmas Eve. Everyone was so pleasant and happy. The restaurant was very festive. I heard that the last seating was at 6pm on Christmas Eve so the employees could get home early to spend time with their families. Kudos to the management for thinking of their valued employees! We'll be dining there again real soon.

We ordered Poutine and the Pork belly for appetizers. The Poutine was as good as before but the pork belly could have been cooked until crisper. It appreared to have more fat than usual. Some kind of a glaze or sauce with it also would have added to the dish. We each ordered different entrees. We expected the Osso Bucco to be served over pasta as a whole shank but instead it was shredded and added to the dish. The guest was a bit disappointed. The Korean short rib was good overall but the sauce was little salty. The 1/2 chicken was tasty but the roasted brussel sprouts served as a side with it were overdone and had obviously been cooked and warmed up. One of us ordered the Pork chop which seemed good and the guest enjoyed it. We love the ambience, service and friendliness of everyone at Forge and Vine but the food could be turned up a notch. We had better food there his past Summer, so we are not sure why it just seemed a bit off this time.

The service was friendly, but we had to wait a long time for the plates to be cleared and to get dessert.
The food was mixed. My husband really liked his dish, but the glaze on my salmon was so salty that it overpowered everything else. I would go again, but try something else.

I love the atmosphere at Forge and Vine and the food was very good.
I noticed at my second visit I ordered a $9 glass of wine but was charged $12
on the bill. I was not asked by the waitress what size I wanted and it was not specified on the menu how many ounces. I think this is very sneaky on the part of the waitress and clearly she or the whole establishment up sells without asking permission of the customer.
The citrus salad was boring… too much
lettuce!
If I choose to return, I will make sure
I am charged appropriately for the wine.
