    The Pride Night at The Fork was excellent! We are new to the area and are thrilled we could meet others and make new friends all in honor of Pride Month. The Rainbow Pride drink was great and the food was excellent. Looking forward to coming back again for other events or just a nice dinner at The Fork!!

    Our little waitress was one of the best that we have had in a restaurant. The food was cooked just to perfect and served while still hot. I am unable to eat tomatoes or anything that has tomatoes in the sauces. The appetizer was made with some jams on a nice crusty cracker. Very good. Had apple pie and coffee after and it was so good. Highly recommend that more people should be eating there. I have already told friends about this great place to eat. Have brought a few with us in the past.

    First time there. Food seemed a little under seasoned. Was kinda bland. Portions good. Waite staff very good, friendly, knew menu items, had opionions on what was good. Prices a little high, but understandable with farm to table local food. Will go back doon to try some different dishes.

    The ForkResponded on May 10, 2022Thanks! We're just getting started, and I agree we need a little more spice. We've changed the menu - check it out - there are some new options that I hope appeal to you!

    The food was AMAZING!!! If you haven't been here yet, you're missing out. They are now open for lunch, which I'm excited about. I feel like I have eaten healthy and not overglutonous when I leave here. Everything is literally farm to table and I'm here for it!...especially in a small town like Mountain Home. LOVE IT!!

    Good food small portions but sometimes that’s expected with good food overall would definitely go back again.Staff very friendly😁

    The ForkResponded on May 10, 2022Thank you - we like to think our portions are just the right size to make you feel great - and be great for you. The cost of local, farm to table food is high - so to keep our menu prices from being unreachable, and to give you options and a truly healthy meal, we keep the portions on the smaller side. But, if you ever want more of something, bread, veggies, etc., we'll always accommodate. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

    My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to dinner. The Fork was the perfect place to unwind with a bottle wine and a delicious meal. We both ordered the seafood gumbo. It was amazing. The waitstaff was attentive without being intrusive. The Fork is one of our go-to restaurants in Mountain Home.

    We met up with a friend for our first time visit. All three of us had no expectations about "The Fork". We had not read any reviews of heard of any reports either good or bad about others experiences there. To our surprise to us the food was fantastic. It was different from what one normally gets in a small country town. More along the line of what you would get paying a lot more in a medium sized city or larger. The staff were attentive without being intrusive and the noise level was quiet so you could have a conversation without shouting. It was a Wednesday when we went so on the weekends the noise level could be different but over all it's somewhere my wife and I will definately be going back to. If you were expecting burgers and fries then go to McDonalds as this is not the place for you

    The ForkResponded on January 17, 2022Thanks so much for seeing what we're about - hope to see you all again soon!

    The food is good but they need some more options like side salads and such. Pretty pricey for small portions but I think they are growing and will be adding things so will try again.

    One of our party needed a gluten-free meal, and the chef marked a menu with the choices that are gluten-free, which made the evening much easier for us all. Our waitress was a delight and was very helpful in making our meal experience a great one.

    Coffee is available with brunch & is excellent.. For Guys, order the larger size of you aren’t ordering small plates. I probably wouldn’t order the cheese ball on the regular menu. It was promos as Chimayo green chili, but other herbs overpowered the chili. The Hummingbird Cake I took home for later. It was excellent. We are very excited that there is a place to go for brunch. The offerings on the regular menu are very different & we look forward to trying them soon! Definitely check this place out!

    The farm to fork concept is just what we need to rally support for local small business in the surrounding area. The flavor profiles were spot on and paired well with the wine and beer options. The presentation was clean and showcased the ingredients beautifully. Overall, the dining experience was unique, the flavors amazing and the staff professional and knowledgeable about the dishes and flavor profiles. I do hope to see a menu that changes with the seasons, offering Fall and Winter vegetables showcased in the dishes. My new favorite place to gather with friends. Thank you for the hard work you put into your business. Well done!

    I didn't really care for the small plates and encouraged sharing. The food was nicely presented. It could have been warmer. The service was very good. The host was very friendly and informative. It is way to loud in the restaurant. The sound reverberates. I had to strain to listen to my date. The ice cream bowls were very tasty. Address the acoustics, bigger plates and portions. And you've got a winner.

    My wife and I had an outstanding dinner at The Fork Monday evening. We tried the Veracruz Seafood Bouillabaisse, Vietnamese Spring Roll, Smoked Beef Tri-Tip and Tuna Tataki and and everything was excellent! We’re staying in the area for only 4 nights and we’re heading back there Thursday evening.

    The food was prepared beautifully. The scallops my husband ordered were more like a small appetizer. The wine we had was expensive but great. We think that the atmosphere did not match the prices. We will try you again and maybe try something else. Our waitress was very friendly but the whole atmosphere was stressful. Our dessert never came.

    The ForkResponded on October 21, 2021So glad you found the food and wine to be high quality. We put a lot of effort into it. The atmosphere is an old farmhouse ... sorry about the dessert - let your server know and the next dessert is on us.
