    Overall a solid 7/10. Restaurant and atmosphere is fantastic. Only area lacking was in the food department. Well put together dishes but slightly lacking in flavour. Some dishes also combining not questionable but unique flavours. Just depends on your taste really.

    I'm sad to say that our party of 4 really did not enjoy our meal - or our overall experience at Fork. First we asked to sit at a quiet table - two members of our party are in their 80s - and the hostess seated us at a front table with the front door-windows open to the street. Lots of street noise AND the restaurant's vendors were very noisy as they loaded supplies into the basement directly next to our table. Then the meal . . . not memorable in any good way. We ordered (and shared) several dishes, including the summer bean appetizer (essentially raw green beans; if parboiled, barely), the fish collar (meh), the black garlic pork paté on toast (tasted okay, looked awful), shakshuka (delicious but we regretted that we had ordered something so ordinary - that we could make just as well at home - at a fine dining establishment). Finally, the pot de crème did not even come in a "petit pot", but in something that resembled my grandmother's cereal dish. This was our 5th or 6th meal at Fork over the past decade, and none of them were up to snuff. We're not usually hard to please - in fact, we're usually incredibly grateful whenever anyone else is cooking - but this meal was simply mediocre.

    Terrible service and the food was so so. My friend asked for her dish to be modified and they said they weren’t able to accommodate. However the dish was red snapper and it could have been cooked with just lemon. The fries were very fried and the burger could only come well done which was odd to me. Not worth it.

    Last night I had a vey memorable meal at Ford. It was the second time I've eaten there and this time was exceptional. My server was wonderful; a perfect Old Fashioned and some lovely rose wine. My New Jersey oysters were briny and delish but the entree was the star. It was a roasted tomato with brown butter, coriander, olives and slivered almonds. No way does that do justice - it was over-the-top delicious!

    Unfortunately, the menu has changed, and to our estimation, not for the better. Too eclectic -- like the chef is trying to exhibit his prowess rather than give us items that we actually might consider. Don't get us wrong -- we've always liked Fork, but lately, they've disappointed.

    Unfortunately dinner was so disappointing for the price. The burger came with a huge plate of insanely overly salted fries and the fish plate had a simultaneously fishy and earthy taste, resulting in a feeling of eating the ocean floor. I’ve had brunch here and it was delicious, but dinner was so disappointing and a lot of food was thrown out for a meal that was over $100

    The service was extraordinary, Matt was wonderful. The food was very good, but I'm not sure it was worth the high price. Serving red wine cold in a white wine glass is a bad look for a supposedly high end restaurant. I wonder if making a meal out of appetizers would be a better value.
