An excellent place to eat in Manchester. The only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 is that while I really liked my dish my wife was unimpressed with here's. But the service & setting are excellent & these are clearly people who are serious about preparing good food.

My sweetheart and I went to The Silver Fork for the first time on Saturday evening, and WOW!, I wasn't prepared for it. We were greeted by a knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly server, who picked a perfect wine for me (2010 Anton Bauer Wagram Cuvee – a red blend from Austria). The challenge was to decide what to order from the... More

Tiny elegant place with just two seatings an evening you have to have a reservation well in advance. It's hard to believe they can offer such a varied menu. It reflects the places the young owners have lived - Wiener schnitzel from Germany and dishes from Puerto Rico. It's hard to make a decision. Great wine list too.

The Silver Fork is by far the best food in Manchester. Only about 7 tables in the restaurant so be sure to make a reservation well in advance. chef owned and operated. You won't be sorry eating here. Fabulous food and fanominal service. Must try their coconut soufflé for dessert. Speciality cocktails are unique and tasty.

Wonderful, eclectic restaurant with a cozy yet classy atmosphere. With only six tables and a small bar and a menu that fuses Caribbean, German and New England cuisine, the experience is unique. Had the best French onion soup ever - so good and cheesy it's served with scissors! All of our entrees were expertly prepared. The staff was warm and... More

I chose the restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and it did not disappoint. The menu is extensive for a small restaurant, many choices!! From appetizer to dessert, the meal was phenomenal. Quite possibly the best meal I have ever had. The waiter was friendly and knowledgable, the atmosphere quiet and quaint, the food fresh and delicious. Highly recommend.

I love to eat out and always on a look out for new places to eat. This restaurant is very small and you need reservations. The food and drinks are great. The service is wonderful, very attentive. The only reason i did not give it a 5 star is because of the price. Not your daily or weekly dinner out... More

So we ate at the Silver Fork back in February. And I'm still trying to get back to Manchester, VT just to eat there! It was THAT good. My husband and I went up to the Equinox for a few days for my 50th Birthday (I'd rather be in 2 feet of snow than on a beach!). Found Silver Fork... More
