    A little frustrated with morning fork. We had a reservation and we stayed and talked. We maybe we’re there for an hour and someone came to tell us that they had our table reserved for someone else in 15 minutes. There were 6 other open tables at the time. Just thought it was rude.

    It was my birthday and at the last minute I changed my mind and ended up here at The Morning Fork! I made reservations on the way there lol. Let me tell you, from the moment I walked in I was won over. The Hostess was warm and inviting. We were seated right away. Our server Nelly was knowledgeable, fun, and we didn’t have to ask for anything. We started off with the Smoke and Fire it’s a spicy tequila with a mango purée, it was spicy goodness. For our entrees we had The BLT with a side is fresh fruit and the Scramble with a side of grits. Those grits were perfect, and my Ma was super impressed with the hand cut fresh fruit. Farm To Table baby😊 You have to get the whipped sunset that’s topped with whipped cream and cinnamon, yummy! Ma also tried a Bloody Mary and said it was excellent. They also offer a instant coupon for signing up for texts and emails.

    This was a pleasant surprise. What a quaint little place for brunch. The food exceeded my expectations and service was very good. The only downside, which is out of their control is the lack of parking. That said, I would definitely recommend to friends and do plan to return

    We ate brunch here before seeing a play. The waitress was pleasant and made recommendations when asked. We had the cinnamon roll, corn beef hash, the breakfast sandwich, the savory crepe and the apple cider mimosa. All the food was very good but the savory crepe was exceptional. We will definitely return.

    I’m pretty sure we caught Morning Fork on a bad brunch day. The host rolled her eyes at the group in front of us, shaming them for not having a reservation. We were seated and noticed the “First Time Diner $5 off $60 spent” ad and scanned the QR code and thought that was a really nice offer. More on that later. After 20 mins of no one speaking to us expect the host, we finally met our server. He was nice but clearly spread too thin. At one point he had around 7-8 tables, some overstuffed with too many people. After 35 minutes, we got our cocktails and at 45 minutes I went to the bar to ask for our coffee. When the server noticed this, he grumbled, “I was back there brewing this for you. It’s hot.” Well yeah, it’s coffee. And it’s been 45 mins. Again, chalking this up to him being over worked. Our food was, um ok. My MFn Breakfast Sandwich was so soggy, I took all the bread off. It was also lukewarm at best. Husband’s biscuits and gravy were just ok. The only standout was the waffle but was also barely warm. The only reason I knew the times of how long things were taking is I sent the text for the $5 off QR code as soon as we sat down. When it was time to pay and showed the server, he said “It has a time on it that you have to show it to me by, I don’t know if they will take the discount off now, maybe. I don’t know.” What? That was it. Times up. I couldn’t wait to get out of there. If this is one of the “best brunches” in Louisville, I’m clearly out of the loop. $80 for brunch later and we were extremely frustrated. This was clearly the managers trying to seat every table for extra money and not helping their team. It’s a shame too. I had one of the best meals of my life a few months ago at their sister concept, Fork & Barrel.

    Our recent visit to Morning Fork was outstanding. Andrea, a familiar face, provided exceptional and timely service. The excellent coffee from Safai provided a great start to the Sunday brunch. The girls enjoyed a cinnamon roll, a waffle, and pancakes between them. My wife and I each enjoyed the scramble with chorizo. The accompanying hash brown cakes are among the best I’ve ever tried. We have been to Morning Fork on several occasions and will continue to frequent it!

    My sister's and I brought our mother here for brunch, to celebrate her 80th birthday, after a fun filled weekend visiting bourbon distilleries in Louisville. The service was outstanding and the food, although pricey for breakfast, was abundant and exquisite!!!! Our server, Andrea, was pleasant, accommodating and didn't miss a beat on recommendations - and even sang the birthday song with us for Mom!! Well done, Morning Fork, well done! 👏👏👏 Five stars all around ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    After we paid the bill we were finishing up our coffee and we were told that our table would be needed in 15 minutes for another reservation… “but take your time”… wasn’t too pleased with the feeling of “get out of here”.. other than that the food was excellent.

    Brunched here two days in a row while in town because it was so good. Cute place, really good brunch and super tasty drinks. The Banana Foster’s French Toast and the Chicken and Waffles were both amazing. The Dreamsicle and the #INEEDCOFFEE were my favorite drinks.
