by far one of the best meals we've had in Chicago in a long time. (duck confit club & the salmon with lentils). beer flights by categories which paired nicely with our food. I think what put our experience over-the-top was how outstanding and friendly the staff was during our visit. even as the restaurant began to fill and a good crowd was clearly waiting for tables our server never made us feel rushed even taking the time to not only recommend dessert but to describe each dessert so fully that we simply HAD to order two different ones and share cause we just couldn't settle for one. We will defiantly be back and will defiantly, DEFIANTLY be recommending FORK to our friends.

Overall, the food was great. The crab cakes dish was dry and needed a more flavorful sauce.

We went for the Easter brunch buffet, very good. We love the buffet. My favorite is chicken & waffles, chilaquiles w/chorizo, and bagels & lox! The beer is always good and the service is always good. A cornerstone restaurant for the neighborhood.

Attending the Easter brunch at Fork with family. Great buffet and service. A little on the noisy side as it was a busy day, but overall very satisfied with the meal and experience. Highly recommend the chicken and waffles.

Uncomfortably large booth makes for awkward conversation. Mussels were small. Server nice, but cleared table and drinks prematurely. Duck sandwich inedible. Burger O.K.

We went for chicken and waffles. They ran out of white chicken. I asked if I was going to get chicken to compensate and they said onky two pieces of dark. Explaining that the white meat is 80% of the chicken they said I would still only get two tiny pieces of dark meat.

If your claim to fame is chicken and waffles. Don't run out of chicken!

We had dinner at Fork before a show at Old Town School of Folk Music. We made a reservation for four as we were going there with friends. Their daughter and her boyfriend and joined us for drinks before we went our separate ways. Fork staff was very accommodating of our very last minute request. Our server was knowledgable and made recommendations for wine and an appetizer - his suggestion was right on!

We arrived 30 minutes early for our 7:30 reservation. We found seats at the bar, ordered appetizer and drinks. I received a text message as promised when they were ready to seat us right on time at 7:30. Service was friendly and prompt, food was varied and very good. I recommend Fork.

We went after a late afternoon concert nearby. There were great healthy choices like the beet salad and the roasted cauliflower. The cheese selection was great with plenty of sheep and goat cheeses for me to choose from. My wife liked the charcuterie choices. The staff was friendly and attentive and the seating was very comfortable.

The food was great, the service was absolutely awful. Our server never came back to check on us, it was impossible to flag him down when we wanted to order dessert or get our bill.

Our server did not tell us up front which items they were out of for the evening.
