This was our first time at the Knife and Fork. We were so glad we found it. Happy hour was great with half price appetizers. Bartenders were very friendly and provided great service and conversation. The spinach, crab, artichoke dip was delicious! Very pleasant atmosphere...More

What an amazing icon of an AC restaurant. The ambiance is terrific and alone makes the place worth a visit. But the food and service happen to be pretty great too. Try the lobster thermadore.

Blown away by how good this was. Seafood risotto loaded with scallops and shrimp and had so much flavor. Side items amazing. Goat cheese AU gratin potatoes were one of my favorite things. Cranberry nut bread pudding also delicious. Service was friendly and atmosphere gorgeous.

This is my favorite type of restaurant - cozy, quirky, and with an interesting, nod-to-retro-dishes menu. The tempura green beans, the goat cheese potatoes, the short ribs - everything is heavenly, and the drinks are a generous pour. The staff is friendly, funny, and knowledgeable,...More

This restaurant was recommended to us as a great place to go for a celebration. My husband made reservations and asked for a special table. The party at that table was running late, to which we replied, "no problem, we'll just wait at the bar."...More

I was there in January it was more casual, jeans and a nice shirt. Some people were more dressed but but nothing over the top and I don't believe the restaurant has a strict dress code. I'd say business casual at a minimum.
