“Romantic and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is one of our favorites for a quiet cozy evening with terrific food. Anything they serve with the local wild mushrooms is sure to please. The wine selection always offers a compliment to the meal.The drive around the lake to get there, only adds to the beauty of the place. The interior decor is relaxed but has a warm elegance.

“Love The Fork”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Such a little oasis! I love going to The Fork. Always a nice atmosphere, always good service and always unique and wonderful meals. Menu rotates with the seasons using local sources. I've never been disappointed with the choices, encourages me to try something new each time. Good wine choices. Nicely decorated for an upscale, but very comfortable feel. Looks like they are expanding their outside dining area for summer. Too bad there is not a view of Lake Whatcom, only across the street.

“A special place ... Good for a special meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Rated as one of the best meals to be had in the Bellingham area I had to try it! What I found was a nice location, comfortable interior..well appointed. You can be casual on one side and a bit more spiffed up for the other side. Food was really quite good. I would say that the plate presentation was excellent. They have a menu that changes with the season and local availability ad they support local growers. All was fresh. My only suggestion was that the beer selection could be improved. Definitely give it a try but this is not an inexpensive rendezvous. Average dinner is 28,00 but if you share a pizza and have a beer you can still enjoy without breaking the bank!

“Fun spot, locally sourced food, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

While visiting relatives in Bellingham, they took us to The Fork for a Sunday breakfast. All the food was freshly made, locally sourced and served in a fun, friendly restaurant. Husband loved his huevos rancheros and our two family members enjoyed their mushroom omelet and pulled pork breakfast. I had the pancakes which were good - not great and not as filling - more of a side dish. The over-easy egg I had on the side was delicious - amazing how wonderful fresh eggs can be! Delicious coffee was enjoyed by all. None of the meals were overly filling but all the ingredients were high end and we had a very pleasant start to our day!
