Food was great and fulfilling. Could use more variety on the menu. Service could be much better, had to flag down waitresses as they kept walking pass.

Would appreciate more indication of the spice factor--I have a medium tolerance but the broccoli and Bloody Marys (both medium and mild) were too spicy.

The outdoor eating experience overall was good, it just would have been nice if there was 1-2 heaters. However in the summer it will be PERFECT

In this post-quarantine world, we really enjoyed our time at Fork. Friendly atmosphere and great service. The menu seemed a little thin, but that may have been because of the reopening (I know a lot of restaurants have had smaller menus). I had the burger and fries, and it was great! We had the "hangover cure" drink option which was a bottle of champagne and some juices. I think that could have been a little less expensive, but honestly, no complaints here. Great place for a casual brunch with friends.

Overall, it was a pretty good. I was a bit disappointed with the menu on the company website and on Yelp being different from each other. It discouraged me from buying dinner. The waitress and staff were very friendly.

First time back to a restaurant after the covid pandemic stay at home order and it did not disappoint! Service was a little slow...totally understandable given the staffing issues in the restaurant industry surrounding the pandemic. Staff was friendly and accommodating and the food was delicious!

The good thing is that if you come in at 4:30 you can order from either lunch or dinner menu. They were running a dinner special but we only learned it was not actually available until after all orders were placed and drinks arrived. The regular menu was more promising than the actual dishes. We had an okay experience, nothing to rant about but none in my party yearn to return.

Service was a little slow compared to when we dined there a week ago. We wished our server would have prompted us on appetizers as we could have used them during the wait or at least a bread basket.

We’ve made the mistake of overlooking Fork in the past, mainly due to all the fantastic restaurant options in Lincoln Square. But never again. We yet to have anything but a great meal there. Usually it’s been weekend dinners. But we tried their Brunch this past Sunday and it was amazing. Can’t wait to go back.

Our server was excellent! Gave her total freedom to make our meat & cheese board. Great drink selections. Food properly cooked and normal portions, meaning you'll finish your dish without feeling stuffed. Solid spot! I was pleasantly surprised.

Food was outstanding. Service ultimately was good. Despite having a reservation for 7:30 and arriving on-time we waited at the bar for over 30 minutes. It seemed that the host that evening was overwhelmed by her responsibilities. Confusion over seating arrangements for incoming parties v those already in the house seemed to be happening to others as well as to our party. Once seated the Manager came by to apologize and sent over a few signature appetizers - nice touch. Food quality was great - unique combinations and very well thought out and presented although portions were a little small given the prices. We'd recommend FORK.

What a disaster. We had reservations for 4 and already had waited for a half hour past that time, with one of us in a leg cast, when a booth in the middle of the room opened. Initially they said the booth was reserved and we had to wait another five minutes before they gave it to us. Then the manager brought over a free appetizer, which was a nice gesture except it appeared on our bill (was quickly removed but clearly a communications issue). One of our side dishes never came. Had to ask multiple times to get water refilled. The shame of it all was that the duck salad was outstanding, the remaining meals were fine. However, we do not plan on coming back.

The great—some great wine—some great food (mussels, duck, charcuterie). Some not so great food (chicken burger and shrimp grits).
The ambience was fun. Our server was pleasant.

Everything was great but they were out of 2 brunch items- most likely because we were on the back side of brunch.

First time at Fork for a party of four. Two of us ordered the Mac n Cheese. One came like it should. The other was Dry! Called it to our waitress’s attention. She looked at it & apologized. She was great: offered to get another. I declined cause lost trust. She offered a free dessert. Very sweet of her.
