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.

Tables are practically touching. It felt like I was dining with strangers. The staff were lovely but service was very slow. I ordered a steak to be safe “medium” and it came as a charred hockey puck. The sides were uncooked. For
Dessert we ordered a cheese cake which was really a bowl of cream. It had no crust. Overall the meal was horrible. Other reviews say they try to hard. I say try a little harder!

Delightfully juxtaposition in courses. Wine pairings unusual and very apt

Food took an insanely long time,table next to us ordered, ate, paid and left before we even got a menu. The server only visited our table 2-3 times throughout the entire meal, had to constantly flag him down for everything. Food was good but nothing exciting.

My husband and I have dined at FORK many times in the past; the last time we were there was over a year ago. It was always one of our special dining treats in Phila; "special feel", great dynamic energy with interesting, well-dressed clientele. The current vibe was different. Much more casual--atmosphere, clientele, etc. Also the menu, while creative, was remarkably more limited than we experienced in the past. Everything we ordered was a delicious, interesting preparation. However, it was a bit challenging to find anything other than fish for us to eat. Our server was well-informed and attentive; overall we had a wonderful time out. However, given the limitations of menu and much more casual atmosphere, it did not feel as special. Don't get us wrong...the food was delicious but from the overall experience, we are not rushing back so soon.

Very nice dinner. We had the four course tasting menu. Although the portions were small, we didn’t leave hungry. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. Would recommend and return for another special occasion.

Valentines menu was amazing but the price was a bit high! We sat in the back room used for small gatherings and the ambiance was just not as lovely as the main room. Service was amazing & food quality delicious!

Fork continues to create and serve some of the finest meals anywhere, and especially in Philadelphia. Ellen and her team are superb in every respect, from food to wine to service, and the whole experience is terrific. Ask for a table in the back room - romantic and quiet(er) than the main restaurant.
