Amazing customer service. I can't believe how much they went above and beyond. The chef saw my little crying because she didn't love her fettuccine. He asked what her favorite food was and made it for her! She felt like a queen. That was the BEST customer service I've ever received.

My husband and I had a date night there after having our daughter recently. We sat at a high top which wasn’t bad, it was nice actually cozy aside from the fact that we were right next to the door and host stand so there was a lot of foot traffic right on top of us and a slight breeze every now and then. Our server was really sweet, may have been a little stretched thin because she had other tables one of which was a ten top. But all of the staff was super friendly. The food was amazing and so were the cocktails, 10 out of 10 would recommend their food and drinks. Only issues were that they were out of oysters and the service was slow at times. Other than that it was awesome!

Food was barely mediocre and the service was terrible. Sat long periods of time without a meal course while others around us had much better service. Don't give a waitress a large party if she can't handle her other tables. Not worth the price.

Chef Geoffrey always does an amazing job. Everytime we go we discover another new favorite. Very accomodating for gluten free.

You cannot lose with the short ribs, shrimp & grits or the tenderloin. Au gratin potatoes are unforgetable.

Wine selection weak. Tried both cabs, neither was very good (cabs listed on online menu are not same as offered in restaurant). One option was Federalist - store cost $21/bottle. Restaurant charging $11-12 glass for crap wine. Also, very stingy pours - especially second. Probably 4 ounces or less. Food average. I dislike policy of requiring credit card to make reservation. Probably won't make that much effort again.

I appreciate proper table service and meals being timed correctly. You all knocked it out of the park. We had early(4:45) New Years eve reservations and it was our first time there. Dishes were prepared to perfection and liked that they included unique combinations. Well done by our server and chef. We look forward to dining there agian soon.

We love Fork & Barrel. Everyone is friendly and attentive. Server misunderstood my order (probably not hearing in somewhat noisy area), but corrected it promptly. Both my wife's and my food was excellent. Maybe a little pricey, but worth it for the occasional date night.

The restaurant was very busy with not an empty table in the house. And even as busy as they were, the service was absolutely outstanding. I had the bruschetta and the vegetarian ravioli, both were absolutely amazing. Bravo!

Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. She went above and beyond to answer our questions. The bouillabaisse special was amazing as well as the pork cops and chicken and salads and sides. We never even got to desserts! The only flaw of the evening was the finished plates were never removed and there was a very long wait for to go boxes

Our dinner at Fork and Barrel exceeded expectations! Hayley was a phenomenal server and provided exceptional service during our time dining! The food was great overall and the recommendations made by Hayley, along with fellow server Ashlie helping us out with the dessert menu, didn’t disappoint! 10/10 would recommend!
