Was there for a party so I never saw the regular menu, but the steady parade of appetizers were amazing and they had some very unique cocktails.

Really enjoyed our dinner at Fork, a cool & casual eatery in the Lincoln Square area on the North Side of Chicago, my very favorite city in the world (& where I was born, raised & live). Lincoln Square, itself, is a very funky (in a good way), quirky (in a good way), section of town filled with restaurants, bars,... More

I love a brunch place that takes reservations! I knew almost nothing about Fork, and was pleasantly surprised to find it bustling and cozy on a Sunday morning in autumn. Definitely make a reservation - most/all tables were full, though it didn't look like there was a huge wait. Great neighborhood restaurant vibe, with a long bar where people were... More

This was definitely worth the drive N of the normal downtown, Michigan Ave area. This charming place offers a varied menu with delectable desserts. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The bartenders are versed mixologists, they can offer up ideas and can pick out a wine you will enjoy buy just asking you a few questions. A variety of craft... More

Interesting, varied menu with lots of attractive options. We had lunch at Fork and ordered the Cobb Salad with Avocado Dressing, Eggs with Chorizo and Tortilla Chips and the Lump Crab Sandwich with Garlic Cilantro Fries. All of the items were outstanding. Good ambiance with quite a bit of outdoor seating - really nice setting for a beautiful summer's day.... More

Visited III Forks while in Chicago on business. Loved the ambiance and layout of this restaurant. Had scallops, filet and a salad all of which were excellent. The wine choices are numerous with plenty to choose from for all preferences. We didn't eat upstairs on the rooftop however those who did recommend it. Great place to have a meal and... More

maybe early by a couple of hours! Wine and their amazing apps--pork & duck rillettes and eggplant caviar, fork (duck) poutine are all wonderful! The service was very good, found a Detroit Tiger fan behind the bar--a plus for a MI girl! The prices are very reasonable for the quality of food you receive. A nice, comfortable, unpretentious little corner... More

During a recent visit to the Lincoln Square area of Chicago we had brunch with our daughter and her husband. It was the first time for all of us. I had the Chilaquiles, made with corn tortillas, house-made salsa, queso fresco, onion, sour cream, cilantro, scrambled eggs with the addition of chorizo. We were impressed with the freshness of the... More

I was recently visiting Chicago and a friend suggested we should try out Fork for a group. The restaurant kindly accommodated our large 10+ group and the service was great. The restaurant is located in the Lincoln Square neighborhood which is amazing (first visit) the food is also superb along with the drink choices. I highly recommend the Farmhouse burger... More
