    This was my first expieince at Fork and long overdue! The service and food was beyond my expectations and the subtle suprises in the tates of the food were wonderful. I must mention the cheescake dessert, the addition of the roasted grapes was excellent and the looks on my friend faces as they tasted it was priceless. Thank you for making my husband's birthday so special.

    We ate outdoors and several people made sure we were warm and happy. The service was outstanding! The food was also incredible, I had the tile fish and my husband had the special burger, we shared the beet appetizer and broccoli salad - all of it was incredible. Finally, we had a Portuguese red wine blend that was delicious and quite unusual. All in all an amazing dinner.

    Dinner after a Friday matinee at the Philadelphia Orchestra. As always, the food & service were impeccable. We had some small plates and the trout for the table. The cocktails were also outstanding; the drink of the day was a rosemary vodka gimlet followed by a few rounds of white Negronis which were simply outstanding. Fork continues to be one of the culinary gems of Philadelphia.

    Service was very professional and excellent. I had the burger which was good. I wanted the shared steak but we were on a time crunch and those take an hour to cook. My customer had the trout and it was very good. The local cheese appetizer was very small and barely enough to share but it was very good. I would recommend going here.

    Without knowing anything about Fork or the area, I booked the reservation for a business lunch. The area is cute with quite a few small restaurants close by. Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Ben Franklin Museum and other historical attractions within walking distance. Airport is 15 minute drive. The ambiance, food and service were all top notch. Even during a crowded lunch hour, we conducted business without having any trouble hearing each other. The menu selection is not extensive, but everything we had was tasty and well presented.

    I went there for my birthday, the restaurant was really nice and my server John was very sweet and nice, I love him :)) … he made sure we knew everything about the menu before allowing us to order something we didn’t really want lol. He kept checking on us to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and he also tried his best to meet some of our requirements that we wanted that wasn’t on menu, but that’s okays because I enjoyed myself.. so if anyone is looking for a nice moderate elegant dinner i recommend “FORK” because the people there are very nice and friendly.
