Small intimate place. Love the seasonal menu and wine selection. I have yet to have a wine I didn't like here. The servers and cooks are very personal and make great pairing recommendations. I wish it was bigger and on the west side of town!

Wow, just wow. The service was outstanding, and the food was wonderful. There was a nice crowd of folks enjoying a Wednesday evening meal when I visited. I had a half salad, a mid-size bite, and a dessert. it was great. I will definitely go back if ever in the area!

We eat there almost weekly, have staged group events there, and attended their excellent wine class at their Fork University. Food is always really excellent in design, flavor, portion and choices. Wines are on the walls and can be bought at non- restaurant prices and served at your table. Great variety - and Randy and Betsy know how to pick... More

Great food and great atmosphere. Try the tuna and Napoleon desert. They were both outstanding. Like the fact they have an interesting wine selection.

What a wonderful surprise to find such a great dining experience hidden behind the Lexus dealership. The wines were excellent and the meal superb. Must save room for dessert!

I did have a good salad here but my Iced Tea tasted really funny. I thought it might be some fancy blend that I would like to avoid in the future so I asked "what type of iced tea"? Response - Not sure, it comes out of the gun. What type of 'gourmet" place serves iced tea on tap?? The... More

Great place! My girlfriend and I went there for drinks and after-dinner snacking. It a little hard to find, but the hostess was nice enough to wait outside and flag us from the street...lol (For real, she did that for us, so cool!) We started with a 2 glasses of Riesling (not bad) and had the cheese and antipasto plates.... More

Stopped by while running work errands with my boyfriend. I was disappointed. I ordered a cappuccino which was barely like warm. Ordered 2 soups, one was really good...it was the chive and corn soup and the other a steak soup had big chunks of vegetables which made it hard to eat, and tasted like spicy broth. It was rather expensive... More

Having reviewed Five Forks Market several years ago, it is nice to return and have it as wonderful as ever. Last night we enjoyed the Ahi tuna and a nice glass of vine. For an early Friday evening, we were surprised to be able to get a table! Keep up the good work!
