Steve of the Blackberry B&B ( another Tripadvisor treasure) recommended dinner at Fork and Love. As European foodies, we were very pleasantly surprised. A nice strawberry salad, and warm olives for starters, followed by a great salmon dish and Pork Spatzle (Alpine cuisine terms being a clear sign of the chefs creativity). The fact we shared a cozy table for... More

We are vegan & sometimes it's really hard to find decent food when you travel. So this was such a great find. The restaurant is downstairs in the hotel where we stayed (The Charlotte Hotel). We arrived back from a day in Yosemite a bit late & almost missed dinner service, but the staff were super accommodating & eager to... More

The menu has certainly changed and is strange. The sides with the entrees do not make any sense in many cases. I had the sherry braised chicken leg and it was just OK, too much vinegar. My wife had the spatzle and it was so salty she could not finish it. The service was fine. Prices fair. Issue is the... More

Our hotel recommended eating here, very unique menu. We live in NYC and are used unique and different foods. The combinations here are a bit odd, but if your up for something different it is definitely worth the stop. Staff was inviting and knowledgeable of their wines and cocktail list, readily gave a sample (if available).

Always great food and pleasant surprises offering unique dishes. Living in San Francisco you come to expect quality food when dining out. Fork & Love delivers.

This restaurant offers gourmet dishes that would stand up to very rigorous standards. The dishes are all original, creative and interesting. We particularly liked the Brussels sprouts salad which was a variation on Caesar salad.

Nice atmosphere, food presentation and a real surprise for the remoteness of the town. Saturday night wine pairing dinner was excellent. Sunday morning brunch had unique touches to old favorites - Biscuits and Gravy - not to miss!
