Did the full tasting menu with wine pairing. Excellent. Food was great and inventive, the various servers were upbeat and explained the dishes with enthusiasm. Delectable. Bring a few$$.

I am a black male who was accompanied with a Hispanic male. Although we were dressed casually, similar to the patrons who were already dining, the representative gave us the rudest greeting imaginable, "What can we do for you?" As she did the dirty work of telling us they were booked up and that reservations were needed, the two hostesses stared at the floor. Eventually, our fine dining experience was down the street. The manager of this establishment briefly sat at our table and we relayed our Fork experience, She was appalled at hearing were told "What can we do for you?" as a greeting. Her response was unacceptable. As far as the reservations issue she stated, "Yeah right - at the end of August."

The food and the decor were wonderful and so was the food and the service.

Slow & cold service: food took nearly 1.5 hours to arrive after we ordered. No bread was provided until we asked, and the waiter eventually brought out cold hard bread. Even a hot chocolate took 20 minutes to get here. Go elsewhere if you are looking for fine dining.

Suburb meal, service and atmosphere. Had the duck which was delicious. The team service was attentive, chill, and you never knew they were there. Can't wait to go back and try the roast pork which is an homage to all the great family places in Philly that make their own roast pork.

We've been there probably more than 40 times while living in Philadelphia. Even now that we're back in Italy we miss the creative menu, which is at the same time rooted in local fresh ingredients and shows the value of the chef and his team. I visited Philadelphia last month with my wife and found the same top quality. The front end of the house and the owner are just amazing. Another 20 years of successes my friends!

Dropped by Fork for an early dinner last week. Hadn't been there in a few years but I'd always enjoyed the relaxed, warm atmosphere and pleasant casual service, plus the variety of options and balance portions. Always used Fork's Ahi Tuna dish and roasted brussel sprouts as an example of how divine these dishes could be. The restaurant we stepped into was not the old Fork. Gone was the warm atmosphere. All the tables are black stone set in an "autumn" atmosphere design with no leaves left on the tree (standing bare in the middle). Gone are the options to choose from a variety of side dishes to go with a wide variety of main courses, all reasonably priced. Instead you get a "tasting meal" for $75 per person - with miniscule portions of everything. I did not think dinner rolls came that small. Or artisan bread came that burnt. We were assured that the butters were special but frankly could not really tell any difference. From the moment we opened the drink menu as we waited for our table my instinct was to close it and walk out. Prices were more than doubled compared to most comparable restaurants. Wanted just a glass of red wine but at $14 to $17 a glass, the better option was beer. The food options, while not seeming overpriced turned out to be so when we saw the portion sizes. A salad that involved basically one apple peeled very thin, a few nuts, some freeze-dried greens, and a dressing, while tasting ok was over-priced at $17. The main meal option we selected - a white cheese based lasagne - was $28. While the food was nice - but not something I would rave about like I did food at the old Fork. The service was something else. There is a difference between attentive and obsessive. We were greeted with legions of black dressed women and black-suited men clusters around, hanging out, waiting for something to happen. When a course ended, one would come over to wipe any crumbs from our table and a second would appear moments later to dry where the other had wiped - least our crumbs somehow spoiled their perfect, sterile atmosphere. Granted we were on the early side of the dinner hour, but there were so many bodies around in what is not that big a room that it took some effort to get through them to get to the ladies room. Of course while one left the table for that chore, a wait person quickly came over to refold a napkin left unfolded while one was away. Obsessive has meant it's match. While this should have been an enjoyable atmosphere it was anything but. Cold and sterile are the words that come to mind. Over-priced is another. Pretentious fits as well. Just one other note - these staff need to be trained to slow down and speak up. Our waitress went through their long list of special so fast, and so quietly, my husband and I both had no idea of what we'd just been offered and what questions to ask. It would have helped to have something printed out.
