Fork, acclaimed for its contemporary American cuisine for 20 years, features Chef John Patterson's locally sourced and seasonally inspired menu. 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 Four Bells from Philadelphia Inquirer Critic Craig LaBan.

I have been to Fork semi-regularly over the past 5-10 years, usually for early Sunday dinner. This was my first experience of late Friday night (10PM) dinner, and the food and service were as exceptional as usual. My only problem was with the noise level, especially the "background" music, which seemed to have been cranked up to a level that made ordinary conversation difficult, if not impossible. Perhaps this was a conscious "weekend late-night" choice to attract a "younger" crowd (I am 75), but it did not really help the dining experience in what is a relatively small space to begin with. On the other hand, maybe I'm just getting old and cranky.

We went to Fork to celebrate Birthdays and they really made it special. Ask for a table by the open kitchen. It’s fascinating to watch a restaurant kitchen operate as a well oiled machine.
Service and food was outstanding!
They describe each course as it is served and we needed that. The unique pairing of flavors and ingredients make each course a surprise for the palate.
Fork is a must do for locals and visitors!

I brought my mother for her birthday dinner. The restaurant was beautiful, warm and inviting. The service was friendly but formal and professional. And the food was fantastic!
(The picture below is of the Dry Aged Steak for Two which we shared - so delicious)
The whole night was a wonderful experience.

Way beyond our expectations. Everyone was extremely attentive to our needs and were very knowledgeable about everything in the menu. The food was incredible to say the least. We shared several plates and were surprised by little "gifts" from the chef in between courses. A smidge pricey, but worth every penny!

We are long time customers of Fork and have enjoyed it as an above average restaurant. We had a 6 PM NYE reservation nd were seated timely and very nicely. For the first time ever the food was sub par except for the two pasta dishes which were excellent. The opening amuse bouche was bland and had no texture, the crab salad and dessert were average and the NY strip was not special either. Very surprised at the food preparation quality and so early in the evening.

while the staff is quite friendly and accommodating, the cuisine leaves much to be desired. At a resteraunts such as this the expectations of a small portion size is one thing but the food itself must be a rewarding experience. The main dishes left alot to be desired however the appetizers, desert, and pasta (especially the fettuccini) were delightful. For the money spent there are much better options.
