Get the dumplings to start and a glass of wine white. Then a glass of red with steak and eggs and kimchee! My wife and I have been coming here for a decade!

A perfect fusion of Americana/French and Korean. Sumptuous meals, great appetizers and wine selection. My wife and I have been coming here for years.

Small restaurant with hipster clientele. Modern Korean food. Delicious and beautifully presented. Friendly, real good service by a lovely hip woman. Very Brooklyn. Had to take Uber to and fro from Manhattan. The Scallion Pancake is worth the trip alone!

One of our absolute local favourites during our month long stay in Park Slope. Only a short trip on the B61 away, The Good Fork was originally recommended to us by staff at other (non related) restaurants - we were very happy that they did....More
