    Nice downtown restaurant with decent food. Service was efficient. I miss the smoked artichoke appetizer. Our soups were very tasty, and salads were satisfactory. Ordered the brussel sprouts appetizer which was way too much of a portion for an appetizer even for two people.

    We love coming to Fork for brunch, so it’s disappointing to have a mediocre experience. My husband’s food was cold, and I’m begging you to have at least one plant based option! Just one where I don’t have to pay full price but leave off half the ingredients. How about some avocado toast with grilled onions? You can do better Fork!

    We were lucky enough to get reservations on a Sunday evening and we were glad we did. The inside was smaller than expected but was super cozy. The bar area looked fun and they were playing the Sunday night football game, which we could see from our booth. Win-win! The food was great. We shared a salad and tried all of their delicious homemade dressings. You can't go wrong with any of them but we especially loved the maple. My husband had several :) of their vanilla old fashioned and said it was the best old fashioned he ever had. We of course ended with the butter cake everyone talked about and the calories were totally worth it. Their list of local farmers used to help make their food was an added bonus.

    I had a wonderful experience here just a few months ago, and was looking forward to seeing my wife's reaction on her first visit. Unfortunately, it was a very disappointing night at Fork. Service was good but the food was hit and miss. The asparagus fries and cauliflower popper starters were great. Thinking we were lucky enough to be there on a Saturday, we both ordered the prime rib entree--big mistake. They was possibly the toughest servings of prime rib either of us had ever eaten (or tried to eat). The gristle was so predominant, they were difficult to cut even with a steak knife. We did end the evening on a positive note with the Warm Butter Cake, which was excellent. For me, Fork is one and one; for my wife, the score is oh and one. We may try again, but it'll be awhile.

    Fork is always a fun dining experience, but they’re frequently busy, even for later reservations, and they don’t have a waiting area. Their hostess was very rude about it, so don’t expect a warm welcome.

Server took long time to greet us, bring us water and menu;

    Dining partner very much enjoyed the chopped salad. The tacos left much to be desired. Greasy pork. Too tough to chew through tortilla. This was obviously a business lunch by our reservation, attire, the manner of taking turns eating while other person spoke at some length. The waiter interrupted person speaking and offered to remove one patron's plate as soon as it was bare while the other patron was eating. Most better restaurants' staff are aware that unless the patron is indicating preference for having plate removed, the plates should remain on table until all patrons have finished the course. -- Waiter's actions made it an awkward moment.

    Hadn’t been to Fork in a long time- used to love it!! First- even though we had a reservation for weeks in advance, we got out in the side room which lacks ambience. Second- the chef smothered everything in so much sauce you could barely taste the meat or vegetables. Finally, we ate here for my birthday dinner and Fork used to give a free dessert- their delish pound cake. But nothing this time around. Seems to have gone downhill from what I remember- bummer.

    I got the smoked brisket + mac and cheese. The mac and cheese was excellent but the brisket was a top dressing. I had expected chunks of smoked brisket vs a little bit sprinkled on top. Th other meals were good but I'll not order the brisket mac and cheese again.

It made our dining experience really fun to be outside and also be warm and comfortable. He was also very attentive. Thank you Chase!
