Dinner at Fork & Fire was a pleasant surprise. I had read good reviews on TripAdvisor but heard that the place was a bit noisy. It was. However we were tucked into a corner and enjoyed delicious appetizers including my husband's scallops (he raved -- the best he's ever had) and my roasted beet and burrata salad. We also enjoyed wonderfully carmelized brussel sprouts and although not heavy on the lobster, lobster and potato perogies. Our server was also attentive, however I'm blanking on her name. A little loud but otherwise a great dining experience.

I ordered a Cubano. Sadly, the pork was dried out on the ends and the sandwich dripped grease. I guess I should have had a salad - my lunch companion enjoyed hers.

"Sophisticated Comfort Food"
That's what we concluded we had been treated to--
Interesting flavor combinations and delicious, fresh local ingredients.
Beautifully executed salads and mains.
All in a relaxed, warm atmosphere with genial service and a staff who clearly enjoy working there.
Who could ask for more?
We will be back, probably often...

Valentine’s Day dinner at energetic Gastro-pub couldn’t be beat. Service from front of house, bar to table is superior. Thoughtful attention to the food and cocktails. Cherry bitters in addition to Angostura in my Manhattan elevated the drink. My wife and I were surprised to gush over the mixed green salad. We shared the mixed grill for two with perfectly prepared proteins, farrow and vegetables- rock star dish.

For the finale the chocolate croissant bread pudding was over the top and SERVED WARM. Little touch that shows they mean it.

Fork and Fire is in our rotation.

We went for Valentines dinner, this is not a quite romantic dinner type spot. It’s pretty small and has a loud bar atmosphere. Maybe there was more seating in the back but I’m not sure and don’t really think so. Anyway, the food was delicious. Korean bbq wings were huge and very tasty. They had a pre fix menu as an option, I wanted it my boyfriend didn’t but apparently you BOTH have to order off of it to be able to order. Eh, we didn’t want two desserts and two more apps but we did it anyway because I wanted to try the lobster pierogis and he wanted to try the short ribs, both not on the reg menu. That said, everything was delicious. I’m not a fan of truffle oil so I kept my pierogis out of the extra sauce and they were crispy and outstanding. My salmon dinner appeared to be on the regular menu as well, it was very crispy and a just right portion size sitting on top of a cauliflower soup. I was worried the soup was going to make my fish soggy but it didn’t. My boyfriend enjoyed his short ribs but said there was a ring of oil around the meat which sat on top of mashed parsnips which he noticed. We had a brownie sundae and the tres leches cake for dessert, the brownie was moist and served with espresso ice cream, very yummy. The tres leches was unique and the pistachio brittle was outstanding, I couldn’t finish it so I took it home to spoil myself once more. The cocktails were very good as well. Service was great for a busy night, seating was very tight, and overall cost was pretty expensive because of our pre fixe dilemma. Overall it was a great meal and I’d go back if it were closer but not so sure I’d drive 30 min again.

We’ve been to Fork & Fire (4 Eat & Drink) many times, but this was the first time bringing our 13 year old son. If you’re going to dine on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, I highly suggest making a reservation, as we did.

There are a handful of staples that you’ll always find on the menu, and plenty of other delicious dishes that rotate with the seasons. This time around, we enjoyed the Hanger Steak frites (fries to die for) and a seasonal Urban Valley Acres salad. We also shared an order of the sticky Korean BBQ chicken wings and sautéed broccoli rabe with our son, who made his best effort to devour the loaded baked potato mac and cheese (potato gnocchi instead of pasta). We had the leftovers boxed up to save room for dessert. Gabi’s chocolate chip croissant bread pudding is not to be missed!

The quality of the food coming out of the kitchen is top notch, and the front of house team makes you feel comfortable and well taken care of. It’s no surprise Fork and Fire is as busy as they are. We always look forward to our next visit!

Best hidden restaurant EVER. I thought hard about not writing a review as I'd like to keep this place a secret :). The staff are the best, the food is always top notch. When I need to indulge friends and co-workers with something special, this is where I take them (blindfolded of course).

The cheese platter is way over priced. For $18 you get 4 small pieces of cheese and 4-5 pieces of bread. There were 4 of us so we couldn’t sample each the cheeses unless you wanted a minuscule piece on the bread.
