I usually love Ginger & Fork. Unfortunately, this past experience was not up to par. The service was great, however, the food was just mediocre.....and came out cold.
I think all restaurants have off days and I will definitely go back as I've had great experiences before.

A delightful experience from cocktails to appetizers to main courses and desserts. Impeccable service from Kelsey, the support staff, and owner Mary create a very personalized experience for their guests. If you aren’t dining here, you are missing out on a great Houston dining experience.

Really love this place. The food is flavorful and solid. The cocktail list is outstanding. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I also like the atmosphere - a converted house which adds to the comfortable vibe.

This is a quaint and classy Chinese restaurant with authentic food. I personally think it's the best in Houston. The entire staff is professional and friendly and the service is outstanding. I go here at least once a week for a meal. An excellent bar with interesting cocktails as well.

Daniel, our waiter, was knowledgeable of the menu and made welcomed recommendations. The sea bass and shrimp with asparagus were very flavorful. The pork dumpling with broth was fun to eat as it was good. The pepper accompaniment made fried tofu amazingly tasty.

This is an excellent space for a casual business lunch. The service was consistently top-notch and accommodating from the moment we entered and all through the meal. Our appetizer (lettuce wraps) and entrees (HK Pineapple Shrimp, Shrimp in Velvet Meat Sauce, Garden Chicken) were generous and served so everyone had a chance to share. The space itself is open, bright and welcoming; white tablecloth but very comfortable. A very nice woman came out to check on every guest (she may have been the owner) which I found to be a very warm touch. The parking lot is a little tricky, but not unbearable. Overall a very pleasant afternoon and I would gladly welcome the chance to dine here again.

Sadly, it’s not worth the money. Restaurant is clean and while service is friendly, the dishes come out sporadically without any explanation why they are ill timed. The food itself is like decent take out but costs 5 times as much. Using dried shiitakes in a mushroom beef dish as the main mushroom is practically false advertising. The cocktails cost $15 and are not anything fancy, just renamed standards. $200 for 4 people is atrocious for the quality of food. Management should be ashamed of themselves for attempting to pass this food off as fine dining.

This is a phenomenal restaurant . I had the Houston Restaurant WeeKs menu. I started with the fried cauliflower appetizer, This was one the best cauliflower recipes I have had with the just the right degree of crispness and bursting with flavor. Following the pork bone broth and Cantonese Curry Chicken I had the Ginger parties for dessert. This unique and imaginative dessert was wonderful. It will be worth going back just for this. Overall this was an exceptional meal that left me full without being stuffed.

The Peking Duck was excellent! Worth every bit of the cost. The skin was brown, and crispy. The meat was tender and moist. It rivals what we’ve had in China.

The dumplings were fresh, light and delicious. My husband and I were disappointed by the Cantonese Curry, which our server had hailed as a customer favorite. It was absent of flavor and the chicken tasted old and boiled. The sorbet was tasty but we both thought it tasted like it was scooped from a plastic carton and not made in house. Ambiance was nice. We spent $100 (without alcohol) even though we shared our dessert and starter. Very underwhelmed for the price. With so many phenomenal restaurants in the Heights, we don’t intend to return.

Very loud shaking of drinks at 5 minute intervals. Broth lacks seasoning. Too much money for the food you get.

Wish I lived in Houston to visit this restaurant more often. Excellent food and excellent service! I had the fried shrimp, wanting to avoid a sweet sauce. It had just the right amount of heat to make it so very good. I also sampled the filet mignon with onions and it was so tender and delicious. This is a small place with big taste! Try it!

Enjoyed our meal at Ginger & Fork- a pretty little restaurant tucked away with a beautiful bar area, comfortable dining area and outside patio. The food was excellent- we really enjoyed our beef chow fun- very tasty and fresh and the ginger parfait was excellent!

Food was very good, but the portions were about half the size I was expecting for the price. I'd go back if I had a coupon.
