After being seated by the friendly lady, we got a booth at the bar near where a large guy with a small t-shirt was drilling and sanding in the ceiling. Yuck. Sawdust over the bar and area where we sat. Additionally, our server took our drink order and didn’t return after 10 minutes. I would have just asked to be moved if he had returned, but frankly the guy in the 10 foot ladder sanding should have, at the minimal, required then to close the bar area.

Reallllllly disappointed

The cauliflower wings and fish tacos are fantastic. The raspberry mojito was one of the best mojitos I've had. The service is great too. This is my favorite happy hour spot.

This is a great stop for Happy Hour! Drink and food specials. Try the Cream of Mushroom soup!!! and Cauliflower Wings!!! Yum! Friendly hostess and bartender! The bar area has a great atmosphere, the dining area, not so much (in my opinion)...

Our stop at The Bent Fork in Aurora on Easter Sunday, 2018 was a “Sliding Doors” moment. If you’ve ever seen the movie by the same title, with Gwyneth Paltrow, you’ll understand.

We were all set to go to another restaurant nearby The Bent Fork, but at the last minute we decided to change…and we were so we glad we did!

Upon arrival, the owner greeted us warmly and prepared a booth for us. We were seated quickly and then came “the moment”, when our server, Deshawn, introduced himself. This young man is a cut above in every respect and we all agreed that he was one of the best servers we had ever had the pleasure of knowing. He was prompt, extremely courteous and thought of every detail. For example: I ordered the Buffalo Beer Cheese Burger (which was excellent!) and it came with fries. Now, under normal circumstances, the server will ask if you would like ketchup for the fries. But not Deshawn: He gave me a veritable cornucopia of options: ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, Sriracha, you name it! And, since he was that thorough, I hit him option J) Thousand Island Dressing, to which he said, “Absolutely no problem!”.

While I could go on and on about Deshawn’s exceptional service, suffice it to say that not only will we be back to The Bent Fork in Aurora but we will make sure that Deshawn is there and that we can get a table with him. No offense to the other servers there, but Deshawn is “THE MAN!”

Oh, and by the way, everything we ate at “The Fork” was superb, from the “Loaded” Wedge Salad to the French Dip to my Buffalo Burger. Even the House Salad was excellent. So, if you’re looking for some great eats and even greater service, head over to The Bent Fork in Aurora!

We are Philadelphians in Colorado for skiing and visiting family and friends. This little neighborhood place had sophistication and local spunk. Authentic and low key quality. Coming back next year. Super fish tacos and sublime martini!
