    Ok food, a bit heavy on the salt on all dishes. Heirloom Carrots were presented as “Charred Carrots” and the Brussels Sprouts were undetectable … When the check arrived it was including a 20% gratuity … We were three…this should be announced up front or even at booking.

    The crudo was extraordinary. Thought I wanted the-unable to due to severe allergy issues. One bite of crudo and who needs soup? The celeriac rostii was equally amazing.Husband loved his farmer’s beans and lamb and sausage dishes. The espresso is the best in the city. A perfect night at a perfect restaurant!

    Nice experience, good food - no complaints about the service or food. The forced 20% gratuity (party of 4) rubbed me the wrong way. While the service warranted the gratuity, I didn’t appreciate that I did not have the option. Additionally, there was no up front communication that this would occur. Not a fan of this practice at all.

    First, the owner was there and offered to take our jackets to hang them up. So gracious. Every staff person was welcoming, kind, patient… exceptional customer service. And the food was laid out on the plates in such a way that we felt like we were invited to eat slowly and savor each bite, and each bite was delightful. What a wonderful experience!!

    Nice dining experience with friends. Waitstaff exceptional, as were place settings, location of tables, and overall vibe. The food, although fine, seemed to lack innovation and creativity. That was surprising and would keep me from hurrying back.

    We had a lovely, relaxed lunch. We both loved our meals. The service was perfect. It is a beautiful restaurant that takes expert care of you from start to finish. I was a little disappointed that they had neither a GF bread option nor decaf beans to make an espresso drink. I should have skipped the decaf coffee with steamed oatmilk....

    Soup was wonderful except loaded with peppercorns which were a bit too spicy Bread would have been nice Salad was yummy but very small 2 soups, 1 side salad, 2 glasses of wine and a shared small cheesecake…..$106+ (that includes 20% gratuity) seems crazy expensive for lunch…..

    Such a pleasant experience! Our waiter, Keegan, paid great attention to my gluten allergy, carefully explaining the safe options and taking care to avoid cross contamination of my meal. He checked on us frequently but without disruption. Great ambience and decor and delicious food. I love that there were several options for me to remain gluten free in every course. Drinks were novel and delicious as well. We will definitely return.

    Great decor and ambiance & service . Starter (Fluke Crudo) was absolutely over the top in terms of taste layers .. rest a bit disappointing, salad with great fresh ingredients driving in a flat tasting yogurt sauce. Great place nonetheless, but a bit hit or miss

    I was so excited to try Fork after hearing amazing reviews, however, I did not enjoy their December menu. It was all extremely fishy and bizarre meat options. On top of that, extremely overpriced. $22 for a cheese platter that had one triangle of cheese and one piece of bread cut up into 5 sticks. I am hoping that perhaps their menu changes on a monthly basis and this just wasn't one I enjoyed. On the plus side, our server was amazing and very attentive.

    we had an excellent meal of monk fish, striped bass, the charcuterie board, the chicory salad, the crudo and the trout rostii topped with excellent cosmos. The Fork is one of our favorite Philadelphia restaurants so it was a bit disappointing that our coffee was lukewarm and the coconut custard was a bit pasty and rather unbalanced. The restaurant decor too seemed jaded and in needs freshening.

    We wanted a special Christmas Eve dinner and Fork really provided it. The welcome and service were impeccable, and the food was really top quality (it was the Feast of Seven Fishes - the fish appetizers were beautiful presented and delicious, and the NY Strip we had for our main course was perfectly cooked to our request). I would definitely go there again.
