    The food was hit or miss. We ordered all of the recommended dishes. The salad was overdressed, the focaccia was dry, and most of the dishes, especially the fries, had too much salt. Overall, the food was disappointing, but the service was excellent.

    Extremely smart choice of flavors, textures, plating and menu. From the burger to the fish, the two appetizers, my guest and I were startled by how good this food was. For me this reflection was not in any way influenced by a martini (or two) to rival Musso &amp; Frank's best. Everything was special. Go here.

    Wonderful as always. A few warnings about the current recipes: The skate wing was delicious but the outer coating was almost too salty. Also, what was advertised as a carrot cake tasted like a caramel cake, not a carrot cake. False advertising!

    Altho the food was prepared perfectly, the choices were very,very limiting. We thought the entrees could be expanded. We thought the music was not appropriate for a fine dining experience .it was loud and not soothing or calming. The service was very good. Our waitress explained some parts of the offerings. She was available but not hovering in our faces.

    My husband and I enjoyed our food well enough, but I wouldn't go back to Fork. I loved my cucumber soup, but other than that nothing was special enough to warrant the high prices. I was especially aware of how small the portions were. We dined early, so the place was quiet and the ambience pleasant. I'm not sure if that would be true later.

    My soft-shell crab was just perfect - not too fancy but complemented by the bitter greens, fresh peas, green chickpeas, and clam and parmesan broth. The only thing missing was some bread to sop up every last drop, so I asked for and received equally wonderful toasted bread to solve that issue. Seasonal and terrific.

    We celebrated an anniversary dinner at Fork las night and we’re extremely satisfied with our experience. We were surprised with a glass of delicious sparkling wine first, then the meal and service that followed were both excellent. They have a very creative chef and each dish was so delicious with a combination of some very interesting ingredients. Who would have thought that a plate of cabbage could be so special and delicious? We both had fish dishes that were also great. Eating outside was pleasant. I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant to all who appreciate great food.

    We ate outside, so I don’t know his life I was obviously significant due to traffic. However, it appears that the inside would be much much much quieter. However the tables outside were too close together. Not sure how you saw that. Very knowledgeable waiter regarding the food and wine and drinks.

    The service is good and friendly but the food is overpriced….$8 for a small scone…seriously. Enough for me and my sweetie to each have 3 bites with our coffee. Or you get three bakery items for $22? That’s just ridiculous….

    This is a restaurant for anorexics; when they had gnocchi on the menu, for $29 one for exactly 13 of them. Yesterday, when I ordered polenta with egg, it was with ONE EGG! I didn't check how much the second egg I requested added to my bill. The Maitresse'd was rude and curt. I was asked for proof of vaccination by her, by the bartender at the bar, and finally by our waitress, suggesting the staff do not trust one another. I also had a croissant that might have come all the way from France and was overly re-warmed, practically carbonized. I was expecting a "basket" of breakfast muffins, croissants, etc., as is done in better restaurants. Not here, since this is a place for anorexics, so they limit calories consumption.

    On arrival we were seated at the bar to wait for our reservation. Bartender was outgoing and competent. Selected outside seating and the tables to too small. On the road so noise level was high. The dew drop cheese appetizer and the coconut custard dessert a must have. Soft shell crab was okay. Save your money and do not order the custom rib-eye with bone marrow. Too fatty with a split bone. Even the small portion was overwhelming. Service and attentive owners a nice touch.
