I was very disappointed, the service was truly awful even though they automatically add 20% gratuity (maybe because they do the service is so bad) .
The food was just o k. , however the restaurant is itself is very nice.

Our meal was truly outstanding from start to finish: great oysters and other starters, an awesome trout entrée to share followed by scrumptious desserts!

Outstanding from start to finish! We chose to dine outside for a Saturday brunch on what turned out to be a beautiful day. The day was only enhanced by the delicious food and great service! Standouts were the shakshouka, zaatar danish and tomato panzanella. Highly recommend!

After so many years, Fork continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Philadelphia. If you haven’t been and you’re on the fence, don’t overthink it, just go.

Overall we found the restaurant to be pretentious. My husband ordered the burger medium rare and was told the chef prefers it medium. I ordered the polenta dish and requested they omit the chili peppers. The waitress checked with the kitchen and said it was okay. Then the manager came over to ask if this request was because of a food allergy or preference. I said preference and she said chef thinks you will like it and if you don’t we will give you something else. It would have been customer friendly to say we understand and will omit the chili pepper. We dined at the restaurant when it first opened years ago and looked forward to returning. Our experience was less than satisfactory and we will not return again.

My husband thought it was the best duck he has ever had. The married flavors were outstanding. Next time we go back to Philly, we will go to Fork again.

We have a wonderful lunch at Fork today. Thyme Focaccia and eggplant shared as a starter. I had the Cobb salad which was delicious and so fresh and herby. My husband had BLT and the heirloom tomatoes were so flavorful. A sparkling glass of rose complimented the meal. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.

After moving one of children in to University this weekend. We all stopped in at Fork for a wonderful meal outside. They have a lovely outside covered area to eat. It is noisy as it is nea a bus stop. Would eat inside next time. The food was excellent. A very short and targeted menu. These menus are the best in my opinion. You know the chef will be focused on each dish. We had a vegan in our party. The menu had a good selection to please all. Would highly recommend this restaurant to all.

Wonderful place. Food is delicious, fresh, service is impeccable. We stayed 4 hours and never had the feeling they wanted us to feee the table. Had a long, relaxed brunch. Wine list is good. The price is reasonable given the overall experience.

Fantastic dinner! From food to service, special shoutout to Justin our server whom was extremely knowledgable and very attentive. Food was just as good as I remember 6 years ago. My wife and I cannot wait to come back once the tasting menu is back on the menu. It was also nice meeting Ellen and talking about the restaurant. Fork is a must try for anyone in Philadelphia, can't wait to come back!

We’ve been dining at Fork since it first opened. The restaurant holds a special place in our hearts and history, first date 22 yrs ago - 3 kids later and we are fortunate to be able to take them (all teenagers now) back to where it all started. While visiting Philly recently we stopped in - same wonderful ambiance, incredible food and impeccable service. It’s was great to see Ellen, the owner, when she stopped by our table and we told her our story. She is an amazing restauranteur and we owe more to Fork than she realizes! We will always visit when in town.. Cheers..
