    This was out favorite go to neighborhood restaurant, but the last few times the experience wasn't wonderful. As always, we chose to sit outside, our server took awhile to greet us, and longer to give us the bread we asked for, twice. I had to send my salmon back, the fish and the risotto were cold. My husband was served his food and he ate slowly so I wouldn't be eating alone when my returned. It's a pet peeve of ours for ALL the entrees at a table to be served at the same time. By now we were the only ones left dining outside and felt forgotten. We had to ask twice for someone, anyone, to please check on my meal. It did finally arrive hot and delicious. There was no one around to ask for our check, we had to wait over 15 minutes for it to arrive and was charged the wrong price for my husband's entree. We had to go inside to find our server, wait for the manager to correct it and finally pay the bill. I know workers are scarce now, and we have been patient the other two times, but three strikes....perhaps I'll wait awhile to go back.

    We were looking for an early bird on our way back from the airport, our SW, to Naples and the reviews and photos of this restaurant looked great. They did not disappoint! We got two entrées plus a bottle of wine for $42! The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The service was phenomenal as well. We will definitely be back!

    We’ve dined in and gotten takeout many times and always enjoyed the food. Last night was just okay. My salmon was good but not great. My partner’s meatloaf was extremely dry and he had to ask for extra gravy on the side. He still couldn’t finish it. Service by our waiter was outstanding. I wish I could tell you his name. We’ll go back and try it again next time we’re back in town.

    We are at the new Tex-mex side of the restaurant. Cute decor but super cold inside and lights up way to bright for evening. Reminded me of a Vegas cafeteria almost. Lighting is everything at a restaurant if you ask me. Drinks were so-so. I’ve definitely had a better Margarita. So we were really counting on the food. My dining partners really enjoyed the short ribs. Generous portion as well and I was was loving my pork chop until I tried the rest of the meal. Lukewarm at best. The fried plantains were outright cold despite our waiter saying they’re usually served warm. Asked for a reheat and more sauce and to which our waiter reported to us the owner was in the kitchen when he brought back my meal and for sure would “make things right’. Well 15 mins later I when my dining partner was now done with her meal I received my dinner again. I’m not sure that a whole new pork chop (I had only taken a few bites of my last one) was necessary ( and I’m sure that explained the long delay for a reheat) but at least all was hit this time. Well actually not all. The fried plantains were completely missing. When I asked, I was brought a small plate with a few but you guessed it - cold out of the fridge. Whatever, by then I was done as my dining partner really just wanted to leave. We asked for to go containers and the check. To my surprise, there was no compensation to the bill, so not exactly sure what the owner did to “make it right”. Furthermore if the owner was aware of the problem I’d have expected a quick visit to the table after the food was redeliver Ed to the table. Nope. Pretty disappointed considering an almost $100 check for two drinks and two meals. I know they are new but they’ve got a lot of restaurant competition at coconut point mall. Hope they step up their game.

    We had the early dining special. My husband had the Chicken Milanese, and it was not to his liking. It looked like a flattened pancake and was not all tasty. I ordered the Salmon and it was very good. I think hubby will stick with the meatloaf (which he had on a previous visit) next time.

    SOUTH FORK Grille is one of our favorite places to dine. One thing my wife and I noticed. While other restaurants have cut back in portions , menu prices, or food quality, South Fork Grille continues to give their patrons great value, portions, and food quality. It is this business practice that keeps us coming back.

    This has always been “our place,” but this time was very different. We’d not been there since they opened the renovated annex. We sat in a room with six or seven other tables and one waitress. She did the best she could, but they shouldn’t have opened up the new section without servers to handle it. Very slow! There was no ambiance whatsoever. Nothing on the walls. Cheap gray carpet, loud dishes in tables with no tablecloths. And it was HOT!! The food was good, but they no longer bring a little loaf of warm bread. Just a couple of pieces and a ton of butter. I’m very disappointed! Prices were raised too, but that’s going on everywhere.

    We go to South Fork quite often and have always enjoyed both the meal and the service. My husband and I always share a wedge salad. I always have the salmon and it is always cooked just right. Last night my husband tried the scallops and enjoyed them. Our server Jessie was both attentive, as well as personable. A very pleasurable experience!!

    Didn't give 5 stars for ambiance, because currently under renovation, as they open another restaurant next door. Jessica, our server, is the best. We love this restaurant and can't wait to try El Nido. Our only issue is with Upserve. We haven't received points our last two visits. Tried contacting them 3 times, but no response.
