We were delighted to eat at the Fork. Service was casual and attentive. Food was great. We shared a grilled artichoke, then enjoyed a pasta and a wonderful boulliabaise. Perfect crème brûlée to celebrate. Great Bellingham spot, and new owners are adding their touches.

Love the vibe, great service and the option to dine outside. Good wine selection by the glass, wood fired pizzas, fine dining all around. Highly recommend this place. It’s also open for breakfast on weekends.
