This is a great place to go for lunch and a glass of wine or for an evening out for Tapas. We stopped by the other night for a relaxing meal and a glass of wine. Five Forks has a wonderful selection of wine. You can browse their selection and choose a bottle to have with dinner or select one... More

I ate at Five Forks for a recent business lunch. We ate outside so I can't comment on the inside atmosphere. We had great service. Our waiter was very attentive the entire duration of our visit. He was very helpful and able to give great suggestions at our request. We started our meal with the bacon dates which were fantastic.... More

This was my 2nd time dining at Five Forks. Tried the artichoke/crostini appetizer - real good, a bit too salty/oily for my tastes. My veggie Gnocchi entrée was also nicely flavored, but all the oil is a turn off for me. I had one picky eater at my table, who had a hard time choosing what to get. NOTE: if... More

had an excellent Panini and salad. the restaurant has a very nice contemporary wine bar feel. The ingredients were high quality and fresh and the two items were well prepared. There was a birthday part going on while we ordered and picked up our food.

Great meal with business associates! ALL of the small plates we tried were excellent - bacon-wrapped dates were unique and especially tasty! We also had the warm olives, the crostini, and a special flatbread with strawberries and pancetta. Very, VERY good. We tried several different medium plates for dinner - the tenderloin trio was amazing. The salmon, scallops and pork... More

I was here for a rehearsal dinner, so we had a limited menu. But the food was very good and the staff was very accomodating of the two small children in our group - getting them mac and cheese and pizza. Yummy hors d'oeuvres (the bacon-wrapped dates were delicious),and a great selection of drinks. The service seemed a little slow,... More

Nice selection of wine at unbeatable prices. Food is consistently perfectly prepared. Best scallops anywhere. Friendly service. Can't say anything bad except too many people are finding out what a gem it is so please disregard all of this so it doesn't get any busier!

Five Forks Market was a great place for a relaxing Saturday lunch with friends. The menu has a lot of variety. The food selections were unique and delicious. Wait staff was very attentive but not overbearing. We were in no hurry and did not feel that we had to eat and run. We will return!
