I have heard positive things about Fork, although nothing recently. Our party of 4 dined there last night. The service was excellent, but we left feeling let down and thinking we overpaid for a less than stellar meal.

For appetizers, we ordered the soup of the day, which was sweet potato, 2 orders of the "chicken fried" chicken livers and the beet salad with a horseradish golden beet dressing. The standout was the beet salad. The soup was decent, but the chicken livers were quite dry.

For entrees there were 2 orders of the grilled smoked pork chop with the grilled pork belly. The chef was recommending medium-rare. But, the chops came out completely raw inside. They were sent back to be brought up to the correct temp and when returned to the table, the pork belly and accompanying vegetables were ice cold. I ordered the scallops with the braised beef daube. The best entree of the night. My friend ordered the crispy lamb confit appetizer as her entree. It had a metallic aftertaste. We both agreed we have had much better.

Two desserts were selected. An olive oil cake and a chocolate mousse cake. I didn't try either, but the report on the olive oil cake was average.

We did have a few glasses of wine throughout the evening. With tip it was $385. We left disappointed.
