The Fork & Flask at Nage Ratings and Reviews
I went to this location while I was visiting Rehoboth Beach. We ended up picking this place at the last minute and they were able to accommodate a party of 7 immediately. In retrospect that should have been a red flag.
The first issues I experienced came when a few members of my party ordered coffee and tea. They got their drinks fast enough but had to request cream separately, then we had to ask for sugar and finally we had to ask for spoons to stir our coffee. They made us ask for each of those separately, and when we asked for one they didn't think that we may want a spoon to mix the cream into our coffee.
Then we ordered and my wife's omelette didn't come out with the rest of the food. After everyone else had been waiting for at least 20 minutes I tried to get the attention of the waitstaff but I couldn't find anyone so I had to get up from the table and look for someone to talk to. Eventually I found someone to bring out my wife's food.
After that she took one bit of the omelette and couldn't eat it because it was so salty. At that point we asked for our check and just wanted to get out of there. Then it took another 15 minutes for the waiter get us our check, I ended up having to track him down just so I could get out of that place.
In addition to all of that the prices were way to high for the level of service I received and everyone in my party complained about the hash browns. Noone ever checked on us other than to take our orders and bring most of the order to us.
I will never eat here again and recommend you don't either.
In retrospect, I would not have chosen a restaurant located on Coastal Highway. As visitors in the area, we missed the turn to get into the shopping center where this restaurant is located and had to go through the whole u-turn ordeal (which, on Coastal Highway, is no quick experience). The hostess seated us promptly and the service was pretty good, although we had to call the waiter back to tell us what was what on the cheese plate. Our server was unsure and he had to call someone else over to clarify. IMO the person who brought out the plate should have taken the time to review that information but it was just plopped down and then he was off. We made a meal of tapas items and all were pretty decent - but no stand outs. The noise level in the restaurant was a bit of a turnoff as the hard surfaces made it quite loud. Not a great place for conversation. I prefer a place with an atmosphere that doesn't feel quite so frantic.
We loved the atmosphere and the different menu.. The small plates are big enough to share.. We loved the spicy , lime calamari. My wife loved the Halibut..and I had the scallops on a delicious bed of corn ravioli... very unusual flavors. And the dessert was absolutely worth the calories-creme brulee with a twist! (Chocolate base, salted caramel)
The wine list is unusual (like the South African Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc) and the Flask of delicious , crispy red sangria was amazing....Last but not least the staff were all wonderful- Will definitely recommend and will definitely visit again...
After many great meals at Nage this one was very disappointing. They are at their best when they keep it simple, let the ingredients shine and not overdue it. The fried green tomatoes with crab were overwhelmed with an unnecessary sriracha sauce that dominated the dish. A light vinaigrette would have been a better choice. Ditto for the shrimp and chorizo wontons that was also covered in a sriracha sauce (they should also specify the wontons are FRIED - not STEAMED or I never would have ordered them). The tuna poke was a meager portion with very thick layer of wasabi/avocado puree on top that made it completely impossible to taste the tuna. A nightly special of whole sea bass was drowned in polenta and a tomatillo type sauce and was also a victim of "let's see how many ingredients/sauces we can throw in one dish." The highlight of the evening was the special burrata, peach and tomato salad - which was lightly dressed and tasted like summer on a plate. We've had a lot of great meals at this restaurant - so we're not ready to give up on them yet. We'll be hoping for some restraint and finesse in the kitchen when we're back next summer.
Had a fabulous vegan brunch here. It was a buffet and everything was delicious. My favorites were the coconut banana oatmeal and the quinoa with currents and candied nuts. I'm hoping Fork and Flask at Nage will offer the vegan brunch on a regular basis and also add vegan items to its regular menus.
This was the second time I've eaten at Nage. The first was in 2013! And I remembered it being very nice then, so went back, and it was even better. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful, we met the chef who made sure our gluten free and nut allergy issues were addressed, and the meal was outstanding! Don't miss this place!
Always some nice treats and you can select a few small plates to share. Good craft beer and wIne selections. The burgers are always a good go to choice. On the seafood, I have had more of a mixed experience, from stellar to an odd flavor combination. My knock on the ambience was due to our seating. I prefer the booths and the bar area, but it was a busy night. The light above our table was behind a fan blade which made for a strange strobe effect. A parking lot and taking reservations is such a bonus.
Whenever we visit the eastern shore, we make sure to get a reservation at Nage! They consistently serve beautiful delicious creative food! On this recent visit, our group of 7 enjoyed wonderful cocktails, creative apps, a very tasty beet salad, brussels prepared to perfection, and amazing fish and meat entrees. Our server Shaun took great care of us! Dessert and port did not disappoint either! Although the location is in a rather boring strip mall, it is well worth the visit, especially if you're a foodie type!
The food was fantastic. Lots of fresh, seasonal vegetables and perfectly cooked seafood. The menu is creative and has a wide range of price points. This was an end of vacation celebration meal. My husband was tired of seafood an ordered the ramen bowl. He raved about it all night. We will definitely go back.
I have to mention that our server Janice was fantastic. She was a little harried (we went at prime time), but seemed to genuinely care about our dinning experience and paced our meal perfectly. Thank you Janice!
This was our first time at Nage. The server (Mark) was very friendly and knew the menu well. It helped us in making our decision on dinner. It was fourth of july weekend (7/2) and for how busy it was, we thought the food came out in a timely manner. We had the clams and spicy wings to start, they both were VERY good! (THE WINGS ARE AMAZING!!!) Then for dinner we had the spaghetti and chicken w/gnocchi. Again, both were very very good. The flask drink (pomegranate) was delicious but sweet, I would suggest sharing that drink! Overall, the experience was wonderful and we cannot wait to go back with our family to show them a great new spot!
The appetizers were great, probably the best crab dip I've ever had, but the main course was awful. The sea bass was ok, but the rainbow chard was extremely salty and the tomato polenta had zero taste, my husbands sea for paella was mediocre at best and to top it off, it was very pricy. Don't mind paying for an excellent meal, but this was way overpriced for the quality of the food. Won't be returning. The service, however, was outstanding. The staff was courteous and attentive.
We have had better experiences here. Maybe we caught them on a weak night. Meat was seriously overcooked, dry. Supposedly seasonal local produce but warm salad was full of potatoes. Really? We are in the midst of summer and locally sourced veggies are tubers? Boss must have had the night off.
This was our first visit since Nage became Fork + Flask and we are sorry we waited so long! We met friends from out of town and had a wonderful time. We shared a cheese board and several small plates which was a great way to start. My Ruby red martini was perfect and the buttered halibut was amazing. We will be back soon!
This was great for our Large Family dinner. Monica and company were very kind, thoughtful, and took great care of us. The food was tasty with only one complaint - soft shell crabs were too salty. Appetizers and drinks were great. Highly recommend this for a nice evening dinner after a day at the beach. Dress was casual but the atmosphere and food were a bit more like upscale dining.
Fathers Day. We used to absolutely love this place but we have had two back to back experiences and we will never go back. The second to the last time was at the beginning of the year and the host staff was ridiculous. Too long of a story to type. I tried and tried to call and talk to a manager and no one would take my call. The next was Fathers Day and this time the host was very nice but our waiter was more than horrible. Then it took forever for our mediocre at best food to arrive. We were so sad. It used to be a favorite we recommend highly.
overall very disappointing
Crab cakes terrible... all filler and no lump crab...fried and mushy on the inside
Waitress took 15 minutes to get us our initial drinks and was not attentive
tables very uncomfortable for a big group (8+) -- some people needed to eat at the table corners
We enjoyed an anniversary dinner here and had the most amazing meal. All of the staff were so friendly and on top of everything from start to finish. We shared some small plates: Smith Island Crab Salad, Nashville Hot Chicken, & Crispy Calamari. All of them were great. For dessert we had the Candy Bar Creme Brulee, which was the best dessert we've ever had eating out. Also, we really appreciated the chef coming over and wishing us a happy anniversary, it's the small touches like that that will make us come back again and again.
