I've been there a couple of times. Once for dinner inside and once for lunch outside. Both times I had really bad service issues. First of all, the place is adorable. One of the best atmosphere restaurants in NYC, both inside and on the patio. At dinner, I ordered a fish that was way overcooked, but the waiter never came... More

Super cute, quintessential neighborhood hideout. Lots of seating options between the indoor, sunroom and patio areas. I went for a Saturday brunch and had the bibimbap bowl (tasty!) and a side of homemade kimchi (good flavor, not too pungent or spicy). The staff was nice enough to charge my dead phone for me.

Get thee to Red Hook. Go to the Good Fork. Eat the dumplings. Have the Korean Steak and Eggs. Enjoy the pleasant, attentive but unobtrusive service. Interesting and reasonable wine list. Great spirits, some locally sourced. Just an amazing restaurant. Go!

When I mentioned my impending visit to IKEA in Red Hook to an old friend with whom I was dining, he suggested I try this restaurant in a neighborhood without easy subway access. Immediately upon entering we felt good vibes, from the lovely wooden paneled wall curving up to the ceiling, to the comfortable array of tables and seating for... More

The breakfast sandwiches are delicious with croissant-like bread sweet maple bacon, egg, and spiced pepper, it's balance flavor hit the spot. The clam-digger is tasty, essentially a bloody marry with salty clam juice. The interior is mellow with a relaxed feel, well done without trying hard.

We were sat in the back and our waitress did not come around very often, but everything else was excellent. The good fork seems like a fusion of American and Asian foods and they come up with combinations of food that are very mind blowing. The ambiance is relaxing and all of the items on the menu are worth ordering.

I dined here with my family the night after Christmas. The cordial co-owner greeted and sat us in the back dining room which was quiet and cozy. We received excellent and attentive service - the bartender custom made a special non-alcoholic drink for my niece that she proclaimed the best she'd ever had. Among the highlights of the meal were... More

Our party of 4 had diner on Halloween, We were pleasantly surprised about how cozy the space was and the friendly staff. Cocktails were excellent but the real delight came from the wonderful dishes we had: Chanterelle mushroom salad, and Skatewing to start with black Tagliatelle with tuna, duck breast and tofu with fried egg and Kimchee rice was wonderful....
