The Fork & Flask at Nage Ratings and Reviews
Had been once before for dinner and was great do thought we would try for Sunday brunch on way out of town. Literally no one in restaurant at 1:15 pm. Waiter gave us menu but I didn't like brunch options as wanted s green salad so he was nice to offer me their regular salads. It was just okay as thought shrimp would be grilled but was boiled. Biggest issue was that it was a very average salad in terms of ingredients and size and they charged $12 plus $7 more for shrimp. So over priced for what it was.
Hubby got crab omelette which was just okay although potatoes were good.
Based on how over priced it was got pretty turned off so won't go back next year. It's not like in a fun location.
Was very disappointed in meal although server was very nice.
Restaurant was fairly quiet, being a Tuesday night in mid-September for a beach town. Our waiter Spencer walked us expertly through the daily small plate specials as well as those on the menu. Although the restaurant does not have a separate kids' menu, he described other options for the toddler in our party and kept her supplied with straws (which she kept throwing on the floor) for her water cup. Highlights for our party of five were the Nashville chicken wings, the mac and cheese and the fried green tomatoes topped with crab meat which sounded odd but we were glad we tried it!
As always had terrific good and really great service by Mark.. He was efficient but very friendly and fun. He has the perfect attitude to make for a fun evening. Always love the food her. Great unusual choices and something for everyone. I especially like to come here in season as you can park. My only wish is that it wasn't so noisy. Too many hard surfaces that at times made it tough to hear the conversation at our table for six. this should be on your must try list, if it isn't already!
We have dined at Nage on a regular basis for the past years and have never been disappointed until now. The food was fair at best. Perhaps an off night in the kitchen or the results of a new menu with a new focus. One thing for sure, the crab cakes that are traditionally stellar were lacking in crab taste. One vegetarian diner had little to choose from and the halibut ceviche was overly sweet. Of course we will try again because we won't let one meal cancel out the many delicious meals we have enjoyed.
The food was very good including the mac and cheese and salads. We sat at the bar. I think if we had all stood up and yelled the bartender still would have struggled to remember a beer or put in the food order. I felt ignored at best. Friends took us there after a much better experience at the bar
I tried Nage a few years ago for lunch and was just not impressed for several reasons. But I'm happy to say all that has changed! Nice atmosphere, friendly and competent service, and great food. We had two appetizers and two entrees,and not a bad thing on the table. Even the focaccia bread with a very good olive oil was a step above most. We will definitely be back.
We had a reservation for a special birthday dinner... we were seated right away and had GREAT service throughout the evening! Ordered a few apps for the table- all very good: the tuna poke and the chicken cigars. My boyfriend has celiac disease and couldn't eat the flatbread that came with the tuna... the server immediately offered to add a bowl of tortilla chips so that he could partake... no extra charge. I ordered the Halibut and it was AMAZING!!! We also had the crab cake sandwich with truffle fries... delicious- and my boyfriend ordered the special surf and turf which came with a béarnaise sauce, mashed potatoes, and a mushroom/broccoli medley. Unfortunately, the steak was rather fatty and he couldn't really eat a lot of it. It was just okay, sadly. When the server came to clear the table she noticed how much of the dish he had not eaten and asked if he was unhappy... mind you- we were not planning on saying anything or complaining as everything else was really yummy... but she asked, so he told her that it was disappointing from his expectations. Our server Immediately took the dish back to the kitchen and returned to say that it would be taken off of our bill. Haley was our server by the way... and she is A ROCKSTAR!!! We loved her! The comp'd meal was totally unexpected but certainly appreciated. Then the manager (maybe the owner- not sure?) came by to also apologize for the subpar meal... he felt really badly and was very apologetic as well! They knew it was my boyfriend's birthday because I had said so on my initial open table reservation. We were asked if we wanted dessert but we were heading home for that so we said no thanks. Next thing we know... they brought us glasses of champagne for the table to celebrate his birthday and a to go box of assorted desserts to take with just because. I have to say, I have not had such attentive and thoughtful customer service many places... Fork and Flask beats them all! We will definitely be back!
Fork & Flask at Nage delivers a spectacular experience from start to finish. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and friendly -- and even warned us that we were over-ordering. The surf and turf dish was par excellence and we could not stop thinking about it for days afterward. The small desserts are a perfect ending. I had the raspberry macaron, which had a mouth-watering cream filling with a tangy sweet note. The blondie was warm, gooey and perfect without a hint of cloyingness.
I went to this location while I was visiting Rehoboth Beach. We ended up picking this place at the last minute and they were able to accommodate a party of 7 immediately. In retrospect that should have been a red flag.
The first issues I experienced came when a few members of my party ordered coffee and tea. They got their drinks fast enough but had to request cream separately, then we had to ask for sugar and finally we had to ask for spoons to stir our coffee. They made us ask for each of those separately, and when we asked for one they didn't think that we may want a spoon to mix the cream into our coffee.
Then we ordered and my wife's omelette didn't come out with the rest of the food. After everyone else had been waiting for at least 20 minutes I tried to get the attention of the waitstaff but I couldn't find anyone so I had to get up from the table and look for someone to talk to. Eventually I found someone to bring out my wife's food.
After that she took one bit of the omelette and couldn't eat it because it was so salty. At that point we asked for our check and just wanted to get out of there. Then it took another 15 minutes for the waiter get us our check, I ended up having to track him down just so I could get out of that place.
In addition to all of that the prices were way to high for the level of service I received and everyone in my party complained about the hash browns. Noone ever checked on us other than to take our orders and bring most of the order to us.
I will never eat here again and recommend you don't either.
In retrospect, I would not have chosen a restaurant located on Coastal Highway. As visitors in the area, we missed the turn to get into the shopping center where this restaurant is located and had to go through the whole u-turn ordeal (which, on Coastal Highway, is no quick experience). The hostess seated us promptly and the service was pretty good, although we had to call the waiter back to tell us what was what on the cheese plate. Our server was unsure and he had to call someone else over to clarify. IMO the person who brought out the plate should have taken the time to review that information but it was just plopped down and then he was off. We made a meal of tapas items and all were pretty decent - but no stand outs. The noise level in the restaurant was a bit of a turnoff as the hard surfaces made it quite loud. Not a great place for conversation. I prefer a place with an atmosphere that doesn't feel quite so frantic.
We loved the atmosphere and the different menu.. The small plates are big enough to share.. We loved the spicy , lime calamari. My wife loved the Halibut..and I had the scallops on a delicious bed of corn ravioli... very unusual flavors. And the dessert was absolutely worth the calories-creme brulee with a twist! (Chocolate base, salted caramel)
The wine list is unusual (like the South African Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc) and the Flask of delicious , crispy red sangria was amazing....Last but not least the staff were all wonderful- Will definitely recommend and will definitely visit again...
After many great meals at Nage this one was very disappointing. They are at their best when they keep it simple, let the ingredients shine and not overdue it. The fried green tomatoes with crab were overwhelmed with an unnecessary sriracha sauce that dominated the dish. A light vinaigrette would have been a better choice. Ditto for the shrimp and chorizo wontons that was also covered in a sriracha sauce (they should also specify the wontons are FRIED - not STEAMED or I never would have ordered them). The tuna poke was a meager portion with very thick layer of wasabi/avocado puree on top that made it completely impossible to taste the tuna. A nightly special of whole sea bass was drowned in polenta and a tomatillo type sauce and was also a victim of "let's see how many ingredients/sauces we can throw in one dish." The highlight of the evening was the special burrata, peach and tomato salad - which was lightly dressed and tasted like summer on a plate. We've had a lot of great meals at this restaurant - so we're not ready to give up on them yet. We'll be hoping for some restraint and finesse in the kitchen when we're back next summer.
Had a fabulous vegan brunch here. It was a buffet and everything was delicious. My favorites were the coconut banana oatmeal and the quinoa with currents and candied nuts. I'm hoping Fork and Flask at Nage will offer the vegan brunch on a regular basis and also add vegan items to its regular menus.
