This was one of the top 3 dining experiences of my life! Service was attentive and impeccable, thank you Nora! Right out of the gate, the shishitos were the best I've ever had followed by a tartar dish that was mouth watering...I had the skirt steak...tremendous and topped off by a delectable dessert. The drinks were unique and some of the best cocktails as evidenced by the fact that they offer Monkey47 Gin, a favorite of mine. A truly memorable and phenomenal experience!

Our expectations were high for this Iron Chef restaurant and…they were met. Excellent service including the sommelier. It was a birthday dinner and because the restaurant knew that there were extras included—a birthday card at the table followed by a complimentary glass of nice and dry champagne. Food was excellent and we had an extra glass of wine in lieu of dessert.

Better than ever. We had the shishito's to snack (which were limey and delicious), Hiramasa (like the old kampachi dish, with szechuan button), scallops with nduja and clams (unbelievably good, layered flavors, and no idea how they do that "cor in the Cob which wasn't "on the cob," but some sort of cob-shaped mass of corn and other goodies - yum), hubby had skate, and friends got the classic chicken under brick. Everything was presented beautifully but most important every single dish tasted amazing. Complex, balanced flavorings, perfectly prepared. Wait staff was friendly and helpful, attentive without hovering, and the Som was very helpful finding more offbeat selections. Forge has always been one of our "go to" restaurants, but it is now at the very top of our list.

Forgione’s has always been a favorite of ours, and it did not disappoint. From the time we arrived, the staff was totally attentive and very accommodating. We sat outside, and even though the degustation menu is not offered for outside seating, the staff adjusted the menu so that it felt like we were having the full tasting menu. All dishes were outstanding. And the highlight of the evening was Chef Forgione coming over and wishing us a happy anniversary. Can’t wait to return.

Top notch service, delicious food and a nice chill downtown ambience makes this one of our favorites. Chicken under a brick, with its perfect level of pepper based seasoning is more than enough for two people and it highly recommended. Robert our server was wonderful in helping us feel welcome and we really appreciated his guidance and positive energy.

Had heard excellent things from friends but didn’t live up to the hype. Well cooked food, but prices seem high for a pretty straightforward menu. The dinner still would have been a good experience given cute ambiance and well executed food, but the service was absolutely horrendous. Our waiter was snobby, rude and absent, and the staff seemed generally untrained and confused.

Birthday dinner. To me this is a very chef-driven place- the food is incredible but there are minor atmosphere issues. My husband and I both said the food "punches above its weight" compared to the prices and the somewhat casual atmosphere.

Brick chicken is our go-to! Comes with potatoes and broccolini and is brought to you in a deep cast iron dish sizzling - amazing. Service is impeccable and on top of that very friendly. Love this place!

Everything about the meal was great until the check came and I noticed that it included a 10% COVID-19 recovery charge. While our server explained payment of the charge is optional when we questioned the charge,,my friend and I who split the check were put off by the stealthy way it was added- neither of us had seen any mention of the fee on the menu or elsewhere in the restaurant. We paid it and did not punish the server but, excellent as the meal was, I doubt I’ll ever go back because of the way the restaurant hid the charge.

We have eaten here many times before and loved it. Our recent experience, however, was terrible. The menu is extremely limited and they were out of one of the additions to the menu. The prices are very high for what you get, and the food this visit was just average...very disappointing return.

After receiving poor service (delays, several orders forgotten) and following my regular support of this local restaurant throughout the pandemic, I was disappointed to be handed a check with a 10% COVID fee included along with a guilt trip from the server about how the extra 10% on top of my 20% tip is needed for all of the suffering the restaurant has endured during the pandemic. Only after it was added to the bill and following the guilt trip from the server was I told it is not mandatory. By then, any good will was lost. I thought our being regular customers through a pandemic was enough - unfortunately, not. If funds are needed, it is much better to just increase the prices. Otherwise, as was the case for us, I left feeling like I was taken advantage of instead of appreciated for my business.

As always, MForgione continues to delight my palate - the dinner specials that started with baked oyster topped with cheese (name of which evades my memory) has left me found wanting for more, the trout was awesome and the dessert concord grape cream cake was fantabulous (with that I broke my keto diet!). Thanks for making our anniversary special as always!
