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.
Was a very nice setting and the heaters was a real bonus, food was excellent, I will definitely book another dinner.
Love this place. I will keep coming back and supporting these people and this business.
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!
Such an incredible experience as always! The food is absolutely amazing and the service we had was spectacular considering she was the only server with a completely full patio.
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.
Limited menu.outdoor seating was fine but were able to smell the kerosene fumes from the heaters.
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.
A must stop when in Nelson, the food, the drinks, the service and atmosphere is fantastic!!
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.
We had reservations and we were seated quickly. Waiter was very attentive and food was delicious. Definitely recommend and we will be back.
delicious as always with impeccable service and nice chill vibe.
Wonderful service, great heated patio, the best poutine in Nelson!
Once again, the calamari and kootenay burger did not disappoint. The Kootenay Fog was DELISH. Exceptional service as always.
Absolutely lovely! Great food great ambience
Fantastic restaurant. EXCELLENT food and ambiance.
The best meal out while visiting Nelson! We are at Pitchfork 2 mornings in a row for brunch. Absolutely fantastic food and cocktails! Great, friendly, casual, service. Stunning ambiance. Outstanding!
It was our second visit - this time for dinner. Our meals were delicious and the service was excellent. This is going to be our top go-to restaurant from now on.
The best farm to table food in the kootenays. Great atmosphere and service. 10/10 on everything.
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.
Best customers service I did experience.. above and beyond
Amazing kootenay burger! I must try! The patio was perfect, a cool windy day but we were protected & warm. The heaters were great!
Great upscale meal, couldn’t really get Canadian whiskey
Pitchfork has a lovely atmosphere and the food is delicious. It’s definitely a place to go when you are celebrating something special and want to have a memorable night.
Poutine is great! And the calamari with curry mayonnaise is perfect.
Don't miss eating here when in Nelson. Their burger is the best that I have had in a long time and for supper I had their steak. Amazing!
Amazing restaurant! Kootenay burger is a must try!!
Always always the best service and food and I love how I can trust the server to pair just the right wine with every meal. Must try the calamari!
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!
High quality food in a quaint, funky upbeat atmosphere.
Our waitress, Gabrielle was exceptional.
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.
One of the best burgers I’ve had the fries were amazing and great service. Dec would go back!
Uncommon menu selections, finely presented and excellently prepared. The atmosphere is second to none in Nelson. The service is relaxed, personal and sensitive to the mood of each client. Overall, a fabulous meal in a quirky environment, well worth dawdling over.
We had really good service. The staff was friendly. My partner greatly enjoyed the poutine with beef brisket - hot and tasty. I had the tuna poke which was good. The music was groovy.
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.
