Overall we had a great experience. It was our anniversary and the restaurant had an anniversary card signed by the staff at our table. I've never had a restaurant do this, so it was extremely thoughtful. This was one of our first meals out since the pandemic and the food was really exceptional. We had the catch of the day, crab cakes, and the ravioli. Each bite was delicious. Our server was attentive, friendly, and she did a great job! Excellent wine and drink list too. Keep up the good work.
Between the expensive tasting food but an affordable budget and the ambiance we will definitely be back. Everything was amazing from start to finish. Do yourself a favor and don’t forget the risotto or the ravioli.
I’ve eaten here twice an both times were amazing. The food, drinks and staff are wonderful. I would highly recommend
Excellent food and service!
We always love going here! Good is always great along with our drinks.
Chef special was the Duck Confit 🤯🤯🤯🤯 SOOOOOO GOOD!!!!
Great food and service! We would recommend Fork and Barrel to all.
Food was fantastic! Service was great as well.
Great food as usual. I have tried to of the specials off the menu and have not been disappointed. I hope they serve the Duck leg special again, maybe even add to the menu. The service was great. Thank you Jeanette. Very friendly staff.
This was our first visit - would definitely go back.
We were only in Louisville for one night and so glad we chose this restaurant! Food was amazing, service was great and we appreciated the chef coming out to greet us.
Wonderful restaurant, delicious food, & exceptional, attentive staff
BOURBON LOVERS BEWARE! Went here for dinner, total of 3 people. All seemed to go well. The food was good, but certainly nothing to get excited about. I ordered the Salmon, it was fine and one dinner partner ordered the Short Rib; that was very good. Two in the party appreciate a good bourbon. The old fashioned was well prepared and certainly up to par. However, here is the kicker. The waitress asked if we wanted ice balls rather than regular ice cubes. Well, of course, as stated earlier, we like our bourbon so we ordered the ice balls. Received the check and they had charged us $4.00 for each ice ball!! The waitress never mentioned an additional fee. I have never heard of such a thing to charge $4.00 for about $0.0003 of water. I did not want to confront the staff (and be compelled to write a better review) because I wanted to let other diners to know.
Food and service were excellent! The short ribs with goat cheese risotto were melt in your mouth fantastic. One of the best pimiento cheeses I have ever had!
We had an issue with our order, my husband ordered his without cheese and they had to make him a new one because his came with cheese on it. This didn’t detract from the delicious food though!
I found it odd that our server never told us the specials but told all of his other tables the specials. There was also a hair on my napkin when I unwrapped it. I’m not sure if that was my hair or someone else’s but definitely caused me to use my husband’s silverware.
I could tell they were busy and a little frazzled. The food was phenomenal as usual, we definitely will be back!
We had a wonderful dinner here! The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We really appreciated how creative and well thought out the menu was. Hands down the best meal we've had in Louisville!
Had an 830 reservation, didn't realize they closed at 9. Was immediately seated the host was super! A couple walked up was sat right next to us, got drinks and ordered before we even were brought water. Waitress was going above and beyond for this table and we were a mere second thought. My experience in the past here has been nothing but great. Not trying to sound privileged in any manner, just have never been treated like that here!
We came here for dinner with another couple and we all enjoyed our dinner; service was exceptional. One of the ways I appraise a restaurant is on how well a problem is handled. My friends steak was over cooked and the restaurant handed it expertly. Everything else was spot on.
I had a strip steak special with house cut fries and a blue cheese butter was was delicious.
The wine list is not large but it is well thought out and I enjoyed a Cote du Rhone red with my meal.
We enjoy going to Fork and Barrel. We have never had a bad meal there and the portions are not small. You get a nice meal for the price. The Old Fashion is what I call their signature cocktail. The staff is very friendly and our servers have been excellent. Sam and Nicholas do a great job and they pay attention to their tables.
Great food. Very nice waitress. We do plan on coming back!
Our first time...it won’t be our last! Great food and great service.
We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed the drinks! A hidden gem.
We ordered the Pork Chop dinner and the Shrimp & Grits dinner that were fantastic. The Crab Cakes for an appetizer were some of the best we have had anywhere. The service was great as well. We would highly recommend Fork and Barrel.
Food was delicious and the service outstanding. The chef came out and we had a great conversation. We ugly highly recommend this dining experience!
Wonderful dinner last night! Tried some things we didn't try last time we were there. The zuchinni fritters, trout special, filet, Brussels sprouts and au gratin potatoes were favorites. Always so good! Can't wait to try Morning Fork too!
Delicious food! Great service! Will definitely be back
Great way to celebrate our anniversary. We will be back.
Chef Geoff was so amazing and the food was phenomenal! Thank you for making our evening so memorable!
Excellent on all fronts! Food and service outstanding !
Very nice evening. Chef visits at the table are sweet.
Had a wonderful evening! The owner came out and sat with us after our meal...he was a pleasure to meet and the food was amazing!
An outstanding meal. both the Vegetable Ravioli and Short Ribs were delicious.
This little spot was perfect in every way.
Our server Kerry added to the calming drinks, the tasty appetizers, the healthy salads, and the delectable entrees not to be outdone by the brownie and homemade ice cream.
This place was amazing. It made me wish we did not live 8 hours away to do e there more often!
Make reservations now!
The food was fantastic. Our appetizer and entrees were well prepared and tasted fresh. The Chef went to every table to discuss the menu and provide background information about the choices we made. Would eat here again and would recommend Fork and Barrel to anyone looking for a fancy meal that does not require dressing fancy.
Amazing food and great service!
We were seated immediately and the server was attentive. We ordered the bruschetta appetizer, which was delicious, and shared a portion of the shrimp and grits, also very good. I'm sure it would have been a good portion for one entrée, but it was a little small to be split. The server recommended the cheesecake, which was a generous slice and very good. I selected this restaurant, because I followed links to the website and menu, they listed 'happy hour' drinks from 5 - 9 PM, Sunday through Thursday. We went on Thursday. However once we arrived and checked in with the server, no happy hour specials were offered. Either update the website, or honor the happy hour specials.
Great atmosphere, excellent food!
Perfect for conversation over food
Just wanted to say this was one of the best meals and experiences I've ever had on one of the busiest nights, derby, of the year.. Great job!
