Food was delicious but on pricey side. At almost 30 a plate , expected more than plain rice as side. Soup, vegetables were extra and around 10 each.Very attentive and knowledgeable staff. COVID protection measures were excellent. Only thing was Cocktails were way overpriced. Most were $15.00 per drink and they were not large, rather small even they were less than 10, still too expensive. Valet parking or walk across street.

A gracious owner who makes everyone feel welcome. Outstanding food and drinks. The safest indoor dining I have found - temperature checks and a spray with sanitizer before you go in.

Food had no depth of flavor ("very basic"). We were hoping to find anything of note, but left severely underwhelmed.

The most serious about anti-virus we've seen yet! Temperature taken, sprayed down with some sort of sanitizer - even the bottoms of our shoes. Very creative dividers between tables (large blowups of the menu!). Then, the owner (absolutely lovely lady) kept her finger on the pulse of everything that was happening. She took orders, answered questions - is obviously very, very invested in her business. She also said, "I'm an owner, but the entire team has ownership," which I thought spoke volumes. The food was absolute perfection and everyone we dealt with understood the concept of service, which is sorely lacking. Beautiful evening!

Haven’t been since February because of COVID-19 and took some vendors there for their first visit. It was excellent as usual. Mary runs a fantastic restaurant and the food is the best true Chinese not American Chinese I have had since moving to America 10 years ago. Absolutely love it and the Heath and safety protocols in place are just perfect to make you feel relaxed and safe. So glad to go back again!

Ginger & Fork continues to shine! We came a handful of times pre-COVID and now once post reopening. Food is delicious, my favorite always winds up being whatever vegetable dish we select (Gai Lan, baby bok choy, stir-fried green beans) but I'll happily devour a plate of their wings too. Cocktails are quality. I super appreciate the safety precautions they've put in place for their patrons and staff, it's the best I've seen done so far.

You just can’t go wrong with G&F! Wonderful for a business lunch, the perfect date night or a weekend dinner with friends. Authentic Cantonese cuisine, Asian-inspired craft cocktails and a solid wine list. Start with soup dumplings, fried cauliflower and Ginger Margaritas!

Ginger & Fork is a Gem! It's a must if you like Asian Fusion cuisine. The food here is exquisite! And if you really want to treat yourself, order the stir fried lobster in ginger & onions (and don't forget to ask for the "longevity noodles"!!!

Another wonderful experience at Ginger & Fork! The food here is authentic and incredibly pleasing! We had the Hong Kong wonton soup, soup dumplings, Cantonese curry chicken, and the chef's slice pork - I have to say that we truly enjoyed all of the dishes, but we were especially glad to have a place that offers both wonderful dim sum dishes as well as other classic Chinese dishes. The best of both worlds!

The bartender was able to make their dragon fire cocktail without alcohol (I am unable to drink alcohol and found that it the staff had no problem at all accommodating me).

Now let's get down to the best part! Upon completing our meal, the owner came to our table and asked if my partner and I had just celebrated an anniversary. We told her that we had and she asked if I could have an alcoholic beverage as she had noticed that I had ordered a "mocktail" earlier. I told her that unfortunately I could not. The owner came back just a few moments later with two champagne glasses and a dessert in a shot glass! She wished us a happy anniversary and toasted my partner on my behalf! It was an incredibly touching experience. She made us feel right at home and her sweet gesture to this gay couple left us ecstatic. We immediately messaged our other couple friend's and told them of our experience and hope that they will come check it out! (I know they will!)

Upon leaving the restaurant the owner gave both Tami and I big hugs and told us that she would see us next time. We most certainly will be back and hopefully next time we'll have all of our friend's and family there, too!
