We had brunch for our wedding anniversary and my birthday. Food and service were absolutely superb! Our server (Jodi?) made us feel very pampered, she was awesome! We don’t live close, but will definitely return next time we’re near Rehoboth. This chef has got it going ON!

Over- all experience was fair - we come here frequently and normally always have a good experience - as we always sit in the bar area we always have good service till this past time - the bartender who was our waitstaff as well was all over the board - not very attentive ! In the service industry waitstaff is vital

A wonderful dinning experience with a fun decor and nice dinning setting. Service was outstanding and the server was knowledgeable. Great twists on some traditional foods and great flavors. Flask cocktails - way fun.

Perhaps I was at a different place but our experience was horrible. If I could select negative stars I would. We ordered amongst other items a shaved brussel sprout salad with chicken and no cheese. When the salad was brought to the table it was covered in cheese. When we pointed out the problem the salad was whisked away and remade without cheese. This took about 10 minutes - the others in our party picked at their meals during this time. Not getting an order right is bad. The establishment needs to recognize simply delivering what was actually ordered does not restore the experience. The other members of our group of six found their meals okay to nearly inedible. Aside from the food the ambient noise, despite the restaurant not being filled to capacity, was so high that conversation amongst our group was impossible and the server could not hear us when we attempted to communicate unless we shouted. I recommend staying away. Much change and improvement is needed including simplifying the food recipes on offer. In most cases, this would greatly improve part of the Fork & Flask dining experience and make for less demand on the kitchen. I will not return and I suggest others reconsider visiting. There are much better alternatives available.

Amazing experience from the hostess stand to table. Everyone was extremely friendly and received great service from our server Alexia. Shared the ginger parsnip soup with my husband. I got the pork belly ramen and he got a crab cake sandwich, all delicious. My son got the chicken tenders, which he loved. Our son who is 16 months met the chef as well! Will definitely go back.

It can be tough to find a place for brunch on a Sunday. But they were able to accommodate our large party and were very efficient about the service. Our group was very happy with the food, service, and general experience. I would recommend and we would go back again.

The food at F&F is reliably good. I like that the menu changes based on what is in season. The desserts are always incredible! Good drinks and good service. All at a reasonable price

We love Fork and Flask because there are so many options -- large plates, small plates, so many choices of diverse types of food. Great drinks, awesome and friendly service, extraordinary desserts, excellent price range ... The best all-around restaurant i the area.

Tucked into the corner of a strip mall, this unpretentious eatery is worth the trouble to find. Service was attentive, and the menu is not extensive but the selection was varied.
My bride of 54 years chose the crab cake.
While very tasty, it was judged good but not great. The fries on the other hand were incredible! So good I had to help her out finishing them.
We split a baked Brie which was wonderful.
The fried olives, as well as the Mac and cheese were well enjoyed.
This place earned a spot on our “do it again” list.

Went for a birthday celebration and was very pleased. The menu was diverse and we had an excellent bottle of wine. I think they cater more to the cocktail crowd so that was a bonus! Get service and the best dessert menu in town.

Our most recent experience for the brunch was very disappointing to find that, for the most part, the menu has not changed in our five (5) visits for the Vegan Brunch... they sometimes have tacos, but that is about it.

Pancakes, tofu scramble, warm vegetable salad, hash potatoes, poutine, cut fruit, pastries and tempeh bacon...

I found the tofu scramble to be a bit too wet, personal taste of course, the hash potatoes were way too salty and the pastries were too dense and somewhat dry.

Usually, I do not like to complain... yet in the last five (5) visits for the Vegan Brunch we have been disappointed that the same food is always there and nothing new and inventive or different. Not indicating that at each brunch sitting that there needs to be all different food as usually served, but somethings very different more in the terms of food many of us would not prepare at home....

The chef's usually prepare something very inventive for me at dinner when we go... the concept of brunch as presented by F&F does not lend itself easily to 'special orders' and I understand that.

I would like for the bar to be raised for this brunch and make it really special and different and an event which keeps people talking about it and clamoring to go not knowing what to expect and excited to find out...

In this case, an above average meal was made special by the thoughtful, gracious service by Maura. We had a table for two but the dishes overflowed the table. Without us asking, she slid a table over. So much appreciated.

The restaurant offers innovative selections. The emphasis seems to be on creativity and flair. I enjoyed it and recommend it. However, i was disappointed in the scallops and corn ravioli. When it arrived, there only were three scallops, overwhelmed by big chunks of squash and zucchini. At first, I thought the order was incorrect until I pushed aside the vegetables and uncovered three small ravioli. It all was tasty, but for $32, I expected more scallops and ravioli. For this reason, I had to lower the “value” rating.

Fantastic Food and Great Service! This was our second visit to this restaurant. Both times we were very impressed with the food and this time the chef was so friendly and generous to our curious (and over-tired) toddler son. They chatted with him while they cooked food and made up a small order of fries just for him. Highly recommend.
