    I went here for a birthday dinner and it was absolutely incredible. The meal was delicious although incredibly pricey. Do the tasting menu for perfect portions.

    Incredibly good food in a fun atmosphere. Menu changes frequently, but if they have the venison carpaccio or the squid ink rigatoni, GET IT.

    The chef presents new creations that will wake up your palate: spices mixed with traditional American dishes. A nice spot with knowledgeable and caring waiters.

    Beautiful presentation, elevated food, and delightful service. I had a rabbit special cooked 3 ways and the chilled melon soup. Fresh bread and burrata were also amazing.

    Dinner is pricey, but the service justifies the cost. When I failed to gush over my server’s favorite wine, she took a sip, agreed, and uncorked a fresh bottle as excellent as her taste-memory. Read more

    Chef Eli Kulp has some serious chops. He's a Del Posto and Torrisi alum and is making great use of those experiences at the helm of the kitchen at Fork and High Street Market.

    Another great find in Philly. The scallop and roots dishes were wonderful starters. I would highly recommend the pici for the pasta. Be prepared for a major food coma.

    Go for the house menu - bronzino for one of us and guinea hen for the other. Deborah was a wealth of info about the menu and the new chef (oct 2012). One of the best meals we have ever had.

    Worth it just to get a peek at the fresh-baked bread. We like it for the iced coffee in the summer and the hot coffee in the winter. Didn't care for their chicken salad, tho.

    Ehhh. This place feels kind of past its prime. The entrees were entirely predictable and so was the dessert menu (creme brulee anyone?).

    The duck breast had a smoky, briney flavor but the scallops, while perfectly cooked, left you longing for more, considering there were only 3 on the plate @ $26.

    If you're planning on using a credit/debit card, they impose a $10 minimum - which is against the Visa/MC vendor agreement by the way.
