WOW. This was a truly special meal at a wonderful place. The food was delicious, inventive, and thoughtfully prepared. Probably the best service I've had in a long while. The staff is trained by Gramercy Tavern standards and it shows. Waitstaff was extremely knowledgable about the food, the wine, the chef, the restaurant's history...I could go on. If you have a chance to experience this gem, GO! You will not be disappointed.
Hospitable, warm setting with an excellent and friendly staff. The food and wine/cocktails are always exceptional.
We had a fantastic lunch at North Fork Table and Inn last weekend. Our waitress gave us great suggestions. Definitely worth the cost, and it is pricey (our lunch without alcohol was $80).
Service and food were wonderful
We arrived at 5PM. Our reservation was for 7PM but we were staying overnight at the rooms
above the restaurant. We were met at the front reception and immediately taken care of.
The staff were attentive during our dinner and our overnight stay. Everything was thought out very well related to the water bottles and glasses in the room. Various soaps and towels.
Clean room and even some of their famous chocolate chip cookies. The dinner experience was as we expected from past visits. Attentive service and very good cuisine. We brought our own bottle of Caymus and we did pay a corkage fee of $ 35.00 It is worth a visit. The next morning there was a continental breakfast on the main floor which was very nice as well.
North Fork Table & Inn is the best Sunday brunch spot in the area. The food is delicious and the service is attentive and professional. Note: The restaurant opens at 11:30 and will not accommodate early arrivals, even at the bar.
We love going to North Fork ; always a special special treat! That said the duck was a tad bit salty. The servers kept bringing shared items without serving pieces ....when you are the best the standards are so much higher than other places ! When I asked for the sommelier I was told by the waiter “we are all trained on wine”-who say no to a patron at a place like NFT?
The pre fixe menu was pricey and a little confusing. We ordered two of the $75 pre fixes (the cheaper option) because we felt like we had to. One of the choices was fois gras with raw tuna so I opted for that as an appetizer. Once the bill came, they charged an extra $15 for it. The bill was over the top expensive as it was. So while the pre fixe menu was there, they don’t specify what’s actually included. The food was delicious and the dessert was actually the best part. Ice cream sandwich was out of this world.
Stopped here for lunch and found that dinner is not the only meal they're great at.
A simply AMAZING experience!!! The North Fork Table and Inn does not disappoint. From the superb food to the excellent service, coming to the North Fork Table and Inn is an experience not to forget. Our meal was superb and I love the fact that the pacing is nice and slow to allow one to digest and enjoy each of the courses without being rushed. If you are in a hurry and want a "quick meal", then the North Fork Table and Inn is not for you, but if you are looking for a meal of ABOVE 5-star quality all around, then this is the place to be.
At other places, one of my biggest pet peeve's is when a server or runner comes to the table and asks, "who ordered the ________?". How difficult is it to remember who ordered what food items? This is NOT the case at the North Fork Table and Inn.... here is a place where EVERYONE knows who ordered what. Every single runner who brought over our meal items knew exactly who ordered it. It helps to make a meal special.
Portion sizes were perfect. Not too much (like many places do) and not too little. And taste? Simply amazing!!!! My financee and I are still talking about the meal we had this past Saturday and how we are going to return very soon and tell all our friends/acquaintances.
So... if you're looking for a restaurant to be what a restaurant should be in every way, shape, and form..... get over to the North Fork Table and Inn and you will not be disappointed!!!
My girlfriend and I chose to go here for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant made note of that, and started us off with a glass of champagne. There is an option for a 6 course tasting, which we opted for with the wine pairing. The wine pairing was just an extra $35. The 6 course tasting was worth the $125. Each course was wonderful and quite unique.
Fabulous food and service. My favorite restaurant on LI.
My husband and I went to the North Fork Table for Valentine's Day, since we couldn't go out on the actual day. The food was delicious. The service was excellent.
My partner and I went to the North Fork Table and Inn for a birthday/Valentines Day dinner and we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely excellent. I had the tuna tarter in ponzu sauce, and the sea scallops (which was more like a bouillabaisse) and my partner had the scallop appetizer and the duck. Everything was delicious and prepared with care and thought. They even brought out a cookie with a candle in it for my partner's birthday. The service is good, but not quite a professional as it could be (our waiter never asked if we wanted drinks before taking our order and the receptionist made us wait for about five minutes while he was on the phone with a potential customer) before seating us. But, that was pretty minor compared with the great meal, wine (I chose local and my partner had the flight), and fabulous desserts. I recommend the coffee-toffee ice cream sandwich, which I will be dreaming about for days to come. The food is pricey but worth it.
Always love eating at the NF Table. Delicious food and pleasant environment.
We have only been there 2 times and each time it was a great experience. The food and atmosphere is great and so is the service. Well trained staff.
The North Fork table Inn is one of the finest dining experiences we have had on the North Fork. The service is spot on and the food is always delicious and done to perfection.
Always reliably great!
great food, great service, beautiful building... very North Fork. Simple elegance... can't wait to go back!!
A fantastic Saturday lunch. Had not realized it was restaurant week but the LIRW menu did not disappoint. Loved the whole beet appetizer & the scallops with a hint of Indian spice in the sauce were something special. I always have the coconut tapioca dessert as it’s so refreshing. New additions to the wine list paired really well with these dishes. Service is very attentive. Recommended for all occasions.
This was my 4th time at North Fork Table & Inn...and definitely still not my last. I always try to go when Restaurant Week is happening, since the menu is more pricey. But, totally worth it. Everything was cooked to perfection! The flavors in every dish keep your taste buds guessing. My boyfriend and I were seated in the back left side section (which we both had never been in before). It was super cozy and intimate, even though the tables seemed closer together when we walked in. The service was amazing as always. Very friendly and accommodating. Needless to say, I can't wait until the next Restaurant Week!
Friday night of restaurant week. Waited 15 minutes for our waitress who never came back after a brief intro. Eventually, the manager took our order. Small portions . . . . . did I say small portions. Expensive, even for what we got in the $28.95 restaurant week special. Pork block appetizer was reminiscent of cold spam. Sea scallop entree was uneventful and consisted of three small scallops amid about 15 chickpeas on three mixed greens. This entree was small as was my wife's risotto even if they were presented as an appetizer . Apple tart dessert had a rock hard base almost impossible to cut even with a knife. Totally, totally underwhelming experience. Had a bowl of cereal when we came home. Did I say small portions??? Don't waste your money, even during restaurant week. Sadly, this place HAD been a very special dining experience for us but something has changed and changed drastically. Honestly, I was prepared to make a statement and blatantly confront our server with the "ripoff" size portions we received for our meal but it was just not worth the effort. We have been to a number of other eateries during "restaurant week" and they don't cut back on portions and quality during this budget period: to the contrary, they seem to use the "restaurant week" as a time to showcase their talents so the patrons will tell their friends and come back for a return meal. The North Fork Table seemed to be troubled with having to deal with "restaurant week" and it was glaringly obvious that they didn't want to be bothered. SO WHY did they participate? We will not be back to this restaurant for any amount of money. For a truly great north fork dining thrill, go three doors down to Caci. You will pay the same inflated prices but you will get true value and memory for your money. The North Fork Table has lost its flair for the spectacular. Its history is just that at this point, history. Did I say small portions???
Awesome from start to finish. Serving staff so professional & friendly!
A true bargain during Restaurant Week!
Another great meal!
There during restaurant week, service was excellent, the four of us were VERY pleased with our entrees - would have liked different choices for appetizers though. We live in Nassau County and were visiting friends in Westhampton so decided to make the 45 min. drive - not disappointed at all.
A wonderful experience...food is fantastic and service is great. We have dined here for dinner and for brunch and have always been very pleased in all respects. Our most recent visit was for dinner during Long Island Restaurant Week and the special offerings were excellent. This is a special place!
I love this place. Food is excellent everytime. Desserts are delicious and Claudia is the best. I would suggest everyone who comes to the North Fork try it.
We went there for Restaurant Week and have been before. It always has been excellent. Overall, it was very good, but there were differences. For one, all of our soups came out lukewarm and we had to flag down a staff member to let them know. They replaced them without any problem; however when the soups came back out, there was less in each bowl and less crème fraiche. The soup, however, was delicious. The main courses were warm, but again, not hot. They were prepared well and tasty. The desserts were excellent. We were seated in a nook away from the rest of the other tables, which was very nice. The downside to it was that the staff sometimes kind of forgot about us. They were very courteous and accommodating about allergy needs and serving.
Food was great but staff could of been more attentive.
Always great,menu is always changing with great variety
Restaurant week and what an amazing value, 3 courses, no skimping here. The mushroom Velouté, the best I've tasted. The Shinnecock Bay Scallops cooked to perfection (though had just a touch too much salt) and the Coconut Tapioca Pearls, unusual and scrumptious. Certainly one of muy ost favorite restaurants.
As usual, this restaurant maintains it's high standards with excellent food and delicate and delicious preparation of same. Restaurant Week makes it affordable.
WHAT A TREAT THIS PLACE WAS. FRIENDLY SERVICE, GOOD FOOD! THEY TREATED US LIKE FAMILY WILL RETURN AGAIN AND AGAIN.
We have celebrated several special occasions at the North Fork Table & Inn and we were very happy with dinner on this night. The food which included a beautiful beet salad called the Whole Beet was both pretty to look at and delicious! We also had duck breast and beef striploin which were excellent. For dessert, the gingerbread cake was seasonal and wonderful. The service was also excellent - our server, Emma, was attentive and friendly. The whole experience was very pleasant; it’s a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion.
Above and beyond level of food and service. Definitely a must try over and over. The best.
Such a pretty cozy spot in Southold. Ingredients are all thoughtfully sourced and everything is impeccably done. Service was excellent. The only reason it’s not a perfect review is because I am vegetarian / dairy free and there was very little I could eat on the menu.
exceptional food! lovely, personable service.
perfect evening out.
We had another wonderful meal New Years Eve. The food was amazing. The strip loin and Channel Bass were tasty and came out nice and hot. As starters we had the Whole Beet and potato leek soup. Both good but the soup could have been alittle hotter for me. But still enjoyed. Always get the bread which is so good. The place never disappoints.
Overall an extremely enjoyable dining experience !
Very pretty restaurant, we were given a corner table. Good drinks, friendly waiter. Appetizers came & when they cleared our plates, they cleared the bread and butter plates too. When our meal was served, we asked the waiter for more bread. Bread plates were delivered but the bread & butter never did. On top of that, we couldn't seem to get our water glasses refilled. Someone was walking around with a pitcher, never came to us. I asked the hostess, no luck. Finally the waiter came to check on us. He was mortified that we never got the bread (which at that point , our food was finished) & he found someone to give us water.
So, while we enjoyed our food, there was somehow a disconnect with the service, which I found quite surprising. A gentleman was walking around visiting tables but never stopped at our table of 4. I think the corner table may have been the issue?
