5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014 NEW credit card Amex Card Member Review

The tapas menu and extensive wine selection are all very good, we've visited 4 or 5 times over the last couple of years and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is nice enough to help you forget you pulled into a small strip mall, but casual enough to avoid a pretentious feeling. We typically use it as a date-night restaurant,... More

We'll come back for wine and tapas sometime in this smart-looking interior! We visited at lunch, and all enjoyed our panini sandwiches and soups. Our server David was friendly and helpful, and kept our water glasses full.

We were seated at the bar and could see the kitchen which was in full view (I personally like that because it shows the restaurant has nothing to... More

Although everything I've ordered has been excellent, I mainly come for the soups! Choice of two daily - always creative and delicious.. Cute interior but could be more conversation friendly. Wine list for a cause.

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
