Contemporary American
Fork, acclaimed for its contemporary American cuisine for over 20 years. Part of Fork's allure is its hip, stylish, sophisticated interior, where the dining experience is anything but stuffy and uncomfortable. Fork's hand-painted chandelier shades catch your eye as you look above the cast-concrete bar. Modern contemporary murals painted by Anthony DeMelas accentuate the height of the ceilings. Fork earned Three Bells from Philadelphia Inquirer Critic Craig LaBan.

Charming space and gracious owner
Server was a true pro who steered us properly
Pasta, which was made in house, with the chicken entre
Had me reflecting on tastes we experienced in Rome on multiple occasions
If i was local, this would be a staple for us

Worth the wait... I knew that Fork had a new Executive Chef beginning in October, so when this dinner opportunity came up, I decided it was time to try him out. An excellent choice. Starting with the mushroom tempura, the duck, scallops, and nigerian tiger prawns, massive and outstanding. Fork is a keeper and I'd you have the opportunity to have Bill as your waiter, he will top off you evening.

We were there to celebrate a birthday. The food and service were very good. However it took quite a while to be seated even though we had a 7:15 reservation. It was awkward to continue to stand crowded up against the bar while we waited.

Excellent meal, wine, and service! I've never been disappointed at Fork. The new chef (Fall 2019) is exploring some exciting new things and all were hits at our table.

Was recommended by a frequent guest to eat here. The espresso tasted horrible. Something was wrong with it. The steak was raw, almost inedible, on one side, but completely seared on the other. I have no clue how the chef managed that. The eggs and potatoes were flavorless. No seasoning.

The new chef has put together an amazing menu. Don't miss the mushrooms - they are to die for! We had a party of 6 and we are already planning to come again.

Excellent food and service. We come here often and this was, by far, the best experience we’ve had. The new menu was great! The owner and staff genuinely care about exceeding our expectations. We will definitely be back!

Fork is a good choice if you don’t have any dietary requirements/preferences. I went to Fork for a work dinner and checked out the menu in advance to see if they offered vegan options. I thought I would be ok as they offered vegetables. When I asked if they could prepare a vegetable plate - they declined and said I would have to multiple sides and they would remove the cheese. I had carrots and mushrooms for dinner.

Food and service were amazing! Our server was so knowledgeable about the menu and gave great suggestions. It was the perfect amount of food. We left feeling full but not grossly stuffed.

We really enjoyed our dinner on Saturday night. The food was delicious- lots of unusual ingredients that came together in unique but familiar ways. The decor was beautiful and staff was friendly, helpful and down to earth. We ordered the scallops, butternut squash, waygu steak and the chicken. All were fantastic.

The staff is well trained. They work together as a team unlike any restaurant you will typically visit. The menu is unique and full of unusual and full bodied flavors. You would be hard pressed to find a chef who combined disparate farm to table foods better than FORK. This is a $$$ restaurant and I had not problem paying it. The family style service is fabulous. You can share 3 courses and be dated or 6 with dessert and feel comfortable without being overly full.
I tried 10 dishes. 9 were exquisite. The 10th was very good the only challenge was the toughness of the meat cut, but the flavors made up for it. Drinks were well mixed (yes you could taste the alcohol) and innovative. My fav was beez nees and old fashioned. Be bold and you will benefit from trying unique flavors. I will be back whenever I am in Philly!

Food and service, generally speaking is always quite good. On this occasion, they seemed overwhelmed on both fronts. Services was extremely slow. 2 hours. First we had to wait for our reserved table, only 15 minutes...but still. Then the service was slow. We waited over an hour for our main course. After I complained they did offer some complimentary drinks and sent out a complimentary pasta dish that was exceptional, but I would have been much happier if they would not have waited 30+ minutes to decide they had a problem. So will we be back? probably. The food is very good and I think they just had a rough night, but if it were to happen again...I doubt we would return.

The food and service were all good - it’s a very high end and fussy menu though which is not what we typically like.

Fantastic brunch, excellent food and drinks. Definitely on the higher-end price wise, but well worth it. Great ambiance and a reasonable noise level for a crowded place. Some tables were extremely close together so there may be a little squeezing depending on where you're sitting.

I would recommend FORK to the more adventurous eater. We enjoyed the burrata that came untraditional in a scooped out roasted acorn squash. Our entrees were delicious, Wagyu Beef and citrus scallops. The scallops being just about the best I ever had. Dessert was shared, blue cheese ice cream with an almond cake. Everything was yummy but for the hearty rye bread though, we were left wanting more and still hungry.

The food was cool and seemed overcooked. They new dishes were creative but seemed to be a stretch... what's special about prawns from Nigeria except the whopping huge price? They tasted like any other prawn.

Food was amazing. Just delicious and perfect textures.
Only the Service was slow. Our reservation was for 11am and our meal was served at 12:20pm. After taking our order, not a single server spoke to us to check in, until food was served. That’s a long wait.
Still a great restaurant.
