Where do I begin? Let me start from the moment I walked in to the South Fork at the wonderful Coconut Point Mall. I was greeted by Christian at the bar, who I had come to learn is somellier in training and comes from a long line of somellier's. He is young and a wonderful bar tender and actually gives you a taste of your happy hour selection at $4.00 if you can believe that! Christian made my experience even more fabulous than it was. After reading so many reviews and several negative about this somewhat new establishment, I chose to seek it out and decide for myself, after saying "how can these reviews be so negative when the prices and food seem to be so spectacular"? Let me make my own decision. So I went, AND I was not disappointed. In fact I was so impressed I could not believe it! The atmosphere is lovely and I must add the karma is so good! Yes, the name is still there from the old "Grape" franchise which I have come to learn will be gone soon and the entire establishment will be changed up to even more fabulous. I ordered the house wine for happy hour, an excellent Chillean Savigone Blanc. I even got a taste prior to accepting! and can you belive that for HH! Does it get any better? YES it does. I felt like royalty. I ordered the crab cake happy hour appy, and it was PURE and wonderful CRAB and only crab. How can they do that for $4? Others were asking the very same question. I also had the mussels. I would rate them 100 out 100%. I am actually an expert at those and they were one of the best I ever had. Kuddos to this wonderful restaurant. I was served water without asking and I was there for happy hour. Really? Who serves you a lovely tall glass of water with a lime at happy hour? No one I know. How can this be I thought?? Too good to be true?? NO it was not too good to be true since it was all that! I have been all over the place and to me, this spot, South Fork Grill is to die for! The ambieance, the piped in music.... it's all the best. I have read negative reviewes on this site, and I chose to go to see for myself. I think this restaurant is one of the best in Southwest Florida. You watch! It will get rave reviews. And thank you Christian... You will be a star. Next time, I'm going for the Seafod Pappardelle! OMG! A seafood stew in red sauce for $22 for an entree price. Good Luck and I cannot wait to return to South Fork Grill at Cocount Point.
