    Good food we had a great time. But I was surprised by our waitresses lack of knowledge of ingredients. Few dairy free options, and no dairy free creamer available for coffee-very surprising for an upscale downtown restaurant.

    Great food, lovely ambience. Our server was attentive, kind, informative, helpful with drink choices. We ordered kids meals, a salad, apps, the Huli huli chicken, prime dip and the Tuesday tacos. Taco shells were too greasy but everything else was spot on. Those carrots for an app were so yummy. We will be back.

    Absolutely delicious. We had the asparagus fries, pulled pork sandwich, rosemary Parmesan fries, a house salad with grilled chicken and basil pesto dressing, and the salted caramel bread pudding. All of it was incredible. Neither of us would have changed anything about the food at all, but the caramel bread pudding was life-changingly good. One of the best desserts I’ve ever had.

    It was our first time trying Fork and i cant say i am all that impressed. The service felt very "get you out the door", not very welcoming at all. When asked her preference on the menu, our server was quite literally speechless. No constructive suggestions at all. She seemed almost upset that we would even ask. My Girlfriend asked for ranch and it took a whole 10 minutes for her to get it. All for us to spend almost 40 dollars on 1 order of fries, a pulled pork sandwich, and one hard seltzer. Whats more, at that price point, the food was severely mediocre. 17 dollars for dry pulled pork, barely discernable coleslaw, and a stale brioche bun is, to put it frankly, highway robbery. The rosemary parmesan fries made for an exciting archaeological activity as i was sifting through the sand-like parmesan. though a heavier emphasis on the fries would have been much more enticing, that is what i ordered after all. Whats even worse is the sauce that came included with the fries. I do not know what it is, but it was awful. It has the taste of watered down fry sauce and the consistency of watered down cottage cheese. It made the already clammy fries even worse (Hence the requested side of ranch) You would think a place that sells a $600 bottle of wine would taste just a hair better than Red Robin, but i would personally rather spend my $40 dollars there. At least you know what you're getting when you walk in.

    Quite busy on a friday night, but nothing you wouldn't expect for downtown. Got right in with a reservation. Fantastic food, and catered well to a gluten intolerance. Not a place I'd go often (as it is fairly pricey), but I'll definitely be back.

    They were very busy but our waiter, Chase, remained friendly and responsive. All five of us were very pleased with the food, including an 11-year-old who is QUITE picky. Chase was knowledgeable about celiac disease and was able to steer me away from foods containing gluten.
