Philadelphia has MANY great restaurants; it rivals any city in the world for eating. Fork is one of the absolute best anywhere fabulous food, excellent service, and a very hip atmosphere. Well worth the several month wait it may take for a reservation.

This restaurant was a real surprise during our one-night Philadelphia visit. I remember the old days, when you had to scrounge for a decent meal in that city. I had heard that times had changed, but Fork, recommended by the desk clerk at our hotel, served us a superior meal in a lovely setting. Our waiter was a bit too... More

This was around the corner from hotel and we weren't sure what to expect. On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff and led into a well appointed dining area. The service was top-notch and the food was very good. We had the set menu and were not left disappointed, although if anything there was probably too much. Overall a... More

A relatively small and quiet place. An interesting menu...some nice cocktail choices. The menu has three levles to choose from... A $95pp meal, $70pp meal or a la carte. We chose a la cart. Waiters had lots of explanations for ingredients on menu. Lots of local, amish, frsh ingredients.......interesting choices of breads..... Appetizers and mains very good...we had veal carpaccio...

I was keen to try Fork as it was one option for dining with friends at a conference next week. The good news is that it is amazing, the bad news is that it's so amazing that someone has hired the whole place for a wedding reception on the night I was planning to go back. Dining for one in... More

My husband and I had received a gift certificate for Fork. I had been curious to try this restaurant as I had previously read reviews. Having looked at the menu, I was a little skeptical as we are not very adventurous diners. We chose the house menu for $70 person (+10 extra for lobster). It was a four course meal... More

We've been to Fork many times over the years. It's wonderful to see Fork develop from its beginning in 1997 when Market Street in Old City was just becoming a go-to location. Some meals we loved and some were OK, but our dinner last week was fabulous. We let the server know that we had theater tickets at 8pm and... More

We eat out quite a bit and have never been disappointed at Fork. Went back again last weekend and had an outstanding meal. Everything from starters to dessert and coffee were top-notch. A definite winner!

What is there to say about Fork that hasn't already been said? Ellen Yin is the consummate restaurateur, delivering excellence and ingenuity of concept in a space that has continued to excellently reinvent itself since 1997. In it's latest iteration, Chef Eli Kulp delivers with every dish. Thoughtful and amusing extra courses abound, and the cocktail and wine list are... More
