The Apple Brie bacon sandwich on chibatta bread, bacon wrapped dates with honey sauce, and fresh hot rosemary buns never fail to delight! Wait staff very professional. Very enjoyable for an adult meal.

I have been here a few times and the food is okay if you're looking for tapas. I do not understand the corking fee for a bottle of wine purchased in the restaurant. i beleive the only time a corking fee is acceptable is in a BYOB restaurnat. I hate being nickled and dimed by any business.

Thank you for visiting our restaurant - we very much appreciate your business! I would also like to thank you for giving me a chance to explain our corkage fee. Have you ever been to a restaurant and purchased a bottle of wine that you know you have seen in a grocery store for about half the price? For example,... More

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.

What a wonderful dining experience!!! My husband and I went here for our 23rd anniversary based on an article we read in the newspaper. It is now our favorite go to place. 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
