“VERY GOOD FOOD IN AN INTERESTING NEIGHBORHOOD”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

I went to Fork for dinner with two friends. Although I live in Chicago, Lincoln Square is a neighborhood I rarely go into. It's highly walkable with good restaurants and some interesting shops. Lincoln Square is a great venue on a summer weekend for dinner and ice cream. I'd describe Fork's menu as conscientious and thoughtful. There are a range of appetizers and entrees, including a selection of cheese and charcuterie flights. Everything we ate was first rate, and the service was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was pleasant. The bill was about $150 with tip for the three of us; this included appetizers, entrees, and a bottle of wine.

“Unique flavors”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

The chilaquiles were tasty, but I actually liked my husband's orders of garlic cilantro fries much better. The servers were very helpful. I wish I could visit again- so many interesting items on the menu.

“Great and Unique Food, Great Service, Great Value”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

Had a Sunday evening dinner at Fork. Surprised at Sunday evening crowd but folks seem to know this place is good. We were with group that shared a number of starter and main menu entrees. Glad we did because it gave us a way to sample more of what Fork has to offer. Try a cheese sampler Try the Poutine for a unique and good treat--a rich blend of duck, fries and gravy and cheese sauce...not a diet special but was prefect for our sharing. Also liked the wine and beer selection. Though we did not do one, the wine sampling flights looked appealing.

The restaurant has that nice open to the street feel which made a pleasant evening on a spring night. We've visited many popular and small to medium informal restaurants in London and Paris and this one would fit in well in either place. On street parking was no problem.

We originally went for drinks but the aroma coming from the kitchen was too much to resist. we can't say enough about the food. my favorite was the slider. we met the head chef and one of his assitants, Taylor, they were great! will go back again and again!
