    We waited for our food for way too long. People that were seated long after us we’re getting their food before us. We went for a 1/2 hour without anyone checking on us, or offering an explanation why it was taking so long. On the other hand, the food was excellent.

    Great but we wanted dessert and had only 15 mins before our conference restarted and at least the waiter was honest and said he couldn’t guarantee we could get it that fast. Oh well. Other than that it was a great experience!

    I have dined at Fork several times and it has always been excellent. Last night was the first time since the pandemic and it was very disappointing. The service was very slow and a bit sloppy. I don't think it was due to the ability of our server, it seems they were quite understaffed. When we received our drinks the martinis were warm. The food was very good with the exception of one dinner which was cold and had the wrong vegetables. Our waiter was very apologetic and doing his best, but could only do so much. Finally, the acoustics are terrible. It has always been a bit more noisy than I like, but last night it was intolerable. I will not be inclined to dine at Fork again or recommend it. It is expensive and if you're going to charge 5 star prices, I expect 5 star food *and* 5 star service.

    Service was slow. We waited for our server to come. Had to ask twice about our drinks and server forgot 1 appetizer. They ran out of the only vegetarian option along with other entrees. So we had a limited selection to chose from. Bought wrong entree out for vegetarian. Supposed to be cauliflower tacos but was meat tacos instead. Restaurant was not super busy to receive this service.

    This trip was a disappointment. Unseasoned trout atop a bed of "herbed" grain with no other side, save for canned oranges and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. It was awful. The cuban had so much mustard (and it was french's) we were left with a pile on the plate after scraping it off to an appropriate level. There was noting to indicate my drink was a raspberry based cocktail so it had to be sent back. The fries were good at least.

    Overall, I would recommend Fork. For appetizers- we had the asparagus fries and grilled cheese fondue. Both were delicious. For entrees, my husband ordered the burger and fries. I had the Boise Salad. We liked our choices. our friend ordered the ravioli and said the portion was too small. It looked great but I didn't try it. Super Yummy Food. They do have pepsi products so boo to that.

    After ordering two different appetizers, the waiter asked which side we wanted with our entree, listing off the choice of sides, as if our choice of side was included with the entree. We had no idea that sides were not included, and had no intention in ordering any sides until he made it seem as if they were included. Had we known this, we would have skipped a side, because we had already ordered vegetable appetizers. We were very disappointed as we definitely felt like the waiter intentionally deceived us so we would order more food.

    There was a dish (a halloumi salad) on the menu which had ingredients unfamiliar to us. Our waiter, Ryan, answered all our questions, we tried it, and it was delicious! We also had some good, old fashioned comfort food (mac and cheese), and it didn't disappoint - creamy cheese and flavorful brisket. We were there early, about 5 pm, so the noise level allowed conversation across the table. And our waiter was charming without being intrusive.

    While most of the dishes that I've had at Fork have been delicious including the Short Rib that I had last night, the Ravioli dish that two in our party had was sub-par. Little to no taste. Our service was excellent as usual. Try the Buffalo Cauliflower. Everyone in the group loved them. As for value, I have to say most dishes are of average cost, but my One piece of Short Rib @ $38 seems a little steep. Wouldn't be bad if it was two pieces. A half filled shorty glass Old Fashion with Four Roses bourbon set me back $19. All and all, a good night out and we'll be back when downtown.

    I've been to Fork many times and have always had a great time. The food is great, and atmosphere is awesome. Although it can get a little loud inside depending on the evening. The asparagus fries are a must have as well as the butter cake thing for dessert. Probably my favorite dishes there. My Huli Huli chicken was new this time, and it was pretty tasty. Whether it's for dinner or brunch, the Fork is awesome! Just be sure to reserve your spot early!

    We love that the menu has gluten-free options clearly marked, and they use local companies for food products. The noise level was high and the service was average. We waited several minutes at the hostess table to even be acknowledged by anyone (the hostess wasn't there, and another employee standing there completely ignored us). I got the trout with the substitute of asparagus, which I had to pay extra for, because the farro side isn't gluten free. I was still hungry after finishing my meal. The portions were tiny. Maybe this is a place where one has to pay for an appetizer in order to have a full meal but none of them met my dietary restrictions or I would have gotten one. Unfortunately this was our first time here so we didn't know what to expect.
