    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.

    food was very over-salted, and serving sizes for some dishes were insanely small. My friend is a vegetarian, and all that they could order was a tomato salad (consisting of only tomato's and basil, with barely any salt) and another tomato dish (consisting of half a tomato and some string beans). Though the space is nice and service was good, the food was extremely disappointing, especially for its price.

    We had a great seat at the back of the house near the kitchen. We felt well looked after by our server Matt and other servers who made sure our glasses were always filled! We relished the dishes we ordered and were disappointed that we didn’t have any room for dessert because we had eaten so well. Will be back!

    Such a great experience. The hospitality was second to none, from female host manager when we came in, to Rodney our server perfectly timing and delivering our food, to Kevin the manager checking in on us, to the food runner with pig tails paying close attention to our table, this was probably the best service I’ve had in a long time. They made my fiancée feel so special on her birthday. The lamb and sausage dish was one of my favorites I’ve had in forever, and I can’t believe we waited this long to visit Fork! We will be back!

    We haven't been to Fork for several years but returned recently to celebrate an anniversary and, as expected, we enjoyed it very much. We shared the charcuterie for the starter and then we both had the snapper for our entrees. Last, we shared the coconut custard for dessert. Everything was delicious and, in retrospect, the only thing I would change would be to add a vegetable side dish to go with the fish. A very enjoyable evening.

    The food was hit or miss. We ordered all of the recommended dishes. The salad was overdressed, the focaccia was dry, and most of the dishes, especially the fries, had too much salt. Overall, the food was disappointing, but the service was excellent.
