We ate at the bar on a Friday night and had a marvelous time. Great wine selection by the glass. The adult grilled cheese sandwich with tomato basil soup was beyond my wildest dreams. I would go back just for that dish everyday. My husband loved the apple wood chicken. We ended the evening with their specialty butter cake and... More

Trendy industrial atmosphere, it was a little noisy for our taste but food was great and reasonable prices for location.

Have eaten here several times for lunch and a few for dinner - great location for people watching too in the summer out on the street. Delicious food and a good and regular mix of interesting flavors without trying too hard.

We had a great dinner at Fork with a close friend, who originally turned me on to the restaurant. The pork belly and pozole appetizer as well as the roasted beet salad were very creative and had outstanding flavors. My wife had the lamb pops (baby chops) appetizer for her entrée and loved them. The entrees of the filet and... More

Food is great. I have had the trout lunch and the salmon sandwich and both were excellent. The salmon sandwich was the best I have had anywhere.

I like the fork! Its mid range all around. Great ambiance. Good food, not outrageously good but good enough for out of town guests to love! The only issue I have with it, along with many other places, is the space is big and open and sometimes I have trouble with background noise. Once a week their special is waffles... More

We came after the usual lunch rush and found a great booth, window seat. The big, high ceilings in the old bank building were unique and made a nice atmosphere. The menu is outstanding with local sourced products to provide the freshest dishes possible. We had a variety of meals, salmon with risotto, prime rib french dip with homemade tomato... More
