Was a quiet Monday night so we weren't competing for the server's attention. Server was personable and made some good suggestions. Food was delicious, we shared the stuffed chicken breast and the Steelhead dishes having started with the clams and mussels. The outdoor dining on the covered patio was very comfortable with overhead heaters and glass partitions between the tables.

Pitchfork is one of the best places I have ever ate at. Such good service and food. We went for my friends 27th birthday and they accommodated her friend from Australia wanting to buy her a couple drinks. Great staff, amazing food and great location!

The outdoor patio was warm and comfy. Food was great. The classic rock playlist slightly off-putting. We questioned $30 dahl... usually inexpensive, simple food and ordered it after being persuaded it was a huge serving. It wasn't. And it was really good... maybe a $18 dahl. The other items were delicious and priced as expected . The cocktails were fabulous as always.

We enjoyed a fabulous late lunch. The day was sunny and bright and chilly. I was pleasantly surprised to be toasty warm on the heated patio. My hubby’s burger was amazing and the fries were crisp and delicious with a yummy house made dip! My mushroom burger was divine as was the side salad and house dressing. Our server was first class! Top notch experience overall and we highly recommend Pitchfork Eatery!

Absolutely loved it, as usual. We came for a Sunday AM patio brunch for my partner's birthday.

It was sunny out, but with a chilly wind—they had the heaters going, and the new siding on the patio is tall and wooden, so keeps the breeze down—felt just right.

The food at brunch always blows our minds. We had the calamari, Poké salad (great textures) and breakfast sandwich to share. All gluten-free with great GF substitutes where needed.

Drinks were stellar—my partner had an espresso martini and I had a lavender lemonade.

We always love coming here—best service in town, consistently, by far.

Thanks for having us! Will be back (obviously).

Pitchfork was an excellent choice considering the current health restrictions. Outside, heated dining was not bad at all. Amazing food and service and such friendly staff. Highly recommend.

The Patio at Pitchfork was an excellent option, heaters worked well, ambiance was amazing and an there an overall chill vibe. Presentation was excellent and food was delicious. Only reason not 5/5 is was a bit on the pricey side. Will go back for sure.

Small menu but absolutely excellent. We have eaten the same thing every time we go - and it is exactly the same, never poorly prepared. Waiters are very competent, friendly and efficient. Patio is quiet and beautifully landscaped. Gorgeous views.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – I definitely would return to try more dishes. Everyone loved the Roasted garlic, Cashew, goat cheese app. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were pricey."

Was super disappointed to say the least. Extremely over priced for what you get! But what was I expecting? pretentiousness like this is a dime a dozen in Nelson. Save your money. 22 dollars on charcuterie and you literally get 3 small pieces of baguette.

Pitchfork Eatery is my favorite restaurant in Nelson. We went for my birthday and it was as amazing as EVER! This was our first time returning since Covid. They did a great job of keeping the ambiance by adding dividers between tables that suited the feel of the space. Highly recommend to vegetarians and carnivores alike.

We loved our meal at Pitchfork on my husband’s birthday! They went out of their way to seat us outside on a night they don’t normally open the patio. It was a great evening meal! Thank you so much! We’ll be back again soon!

Nelson is lucky to have Pitchfork - one of the only places that consistently provides attentive service, outstanding food, and a warm, intimate atmosphere.
Our latest dinner was incredible, from start to finish. Gareth was a great server and answered all our questions with ease. The wine list was impressive and very reasonably priced. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a special meal in a beautiful spot.

Wonderful to finally venture out again to this gem in town. COVID protocols were acknowledged, service was speedy and attentive. The renovations to the space were outstanding and brought some more light and airiness to the space. We all had burgers which we gobbled down. I am pretty sure there is not a better burger in Nelson!

Everything was perfect. What a great spot. The mushroom bean burger was off the charts. Everything was outstanding. The vegan chocolate hazelnut torte was to die for.
