    Went for brunch. Limited menu. $18 cheese omelette was ridiculously small and nothing special. Don’t mind paying when it’s worth it. It was 5 bites worth of egg and no potatoes or bread. Left hungry even after eating some of my wife’s burger (which meant she left hungry too). Won’t be going back.

    Went here for brunch and glad we did. Every food dish we had was fabulous. Flavorful, but not over seasoned - just right. The lamb flatbread and lemon ricotta pancake were standouts, but everything was yum. Good portions. Great service, Mike was lovely, as was the rest of the staff we encountered. Cocktails were enjoyable. Great first experience and plan to come back and try the dinner menu at some point.

    Another incredibly good meal at Fork. The buckwheat crepe with lobster and brown butter Hollandaise was a highlight. Every course, however, was stellar. I was going to forego dessert, but was happy I succumbed. The chocolate cheesecake with blood orange and passion fruit cream was a fitting finish. Service always attentive without hovering. Looking forward to returning soon.

    The food was not just not good enough for how much we paid. $110 3 course tasting menu for Valentine’s Day - I expected to be wowed and everything was just very mid. We were also there for over 2 hours with long periods of no food. Drinks were good though.

    Went for lunch. Service was excellent, but food was mediocre at best. Ordered the lamb flatbread and the croque madame. Both were very over salted (to the point where we didn't finish them) and the croquet madame was saturated with caramelized onions (to the point that the bread was a pile of mush). We also had an endive salad, which was good. Given the cost of the meal (around $85) I would not go back.

    The Parsnip Curry Soup was absolutely a highlight - excellent presentation and subtle, perfectly piquant flavors of the soft curry and mustard-seed. In a mostly full lunch dining room we shared a quiet table as requested and enjoyed the monkfish and omelette. All good!

    Haven't been to Fork in several years with so many other options in the city, but it didn't disappoint. The mushroom cassoulet was excellent as well as the scallops. My dining partner had the same. We shared a chocolate tort which was divine. Service was very good. Only concern was prices are a bit high. Would definitely recommend and come back.

    This place never misses. Having been a few times now in the past couple months bringing back locals who have been eating at all the new “hot spots” they’re simply wowed again at how outstanding Fork remains today. The 45-day dry aged steak fed a table of four people beautifully. Again! Can’t wait to return.

    We had a wonderful time! It was a little loud - we had no trouble hearing each other but had troubles hearing any of the staff. My husband requested a substitution because he is not a quinoa kind of guy but the chef would not agree - it was not a good pairing. I guess you have to respect that but if you are a meat and potatoes kind of guy, you might want to know this ahead of time. The cheese!! Seriously best cheese I ever tasted. Enjoyed the wine bottle we chose - a California cab - and don’t skip dessert! The chocolate tart was amazing!

    Simply the best culinary experience I have had in ages. The food was masterfully prepared and the plates were œuvres d'art. Every course was am event - though my mille-feuille could have used a few more feuilles for the cost. Service was the only bémol, one I made it known I wasn't going to order alcohol the waitress was done with me. I think I saw her one time after I placed my order. 20% gratuity is fair if you're going to receive decent service. I would go back for the cuisine.
