The Fork & Flask at Nage Ratings and Reviews

Very positive experience. 2/3S of meal was a 10 but the diva noodle dish was aweful. We mentioned to nice waiter and took off bill and gave us extra bread. The bread is fantastic. Really great place and liked the vibe. The way they handled our displeasure speaks volumes about what a great place it is. Highly recommend

Hit Fork & Flask (aka Nage) on Monday. Thrilled to remember it was meatless Monday. I had the polenta special and pretty much cleaned my plate with a nice glass of bubbles to accompany.
Dining companions had a mix of the halibut with frilled peaches (he said it was the best halibut he had all summer and the peaches were perfect!) - paired perfectly with a glass of white - pork, and the beef duo. Everyone was very happy. Benjamin was our server - really friendly.
The chef for the evening - Joe Charles - brought out an amuse bouche - fresh figs stuffed with camembert and blurred. I would have eaten an entire plate of those if they were on the menu. We went light on desert with Chef Dru Tevis classics, blondies and cake truffles.

Always love this restaurant. They changed the decor a bit...more light, more beachy. Food and wait staff were outstanding! Had the BEST burger I have ever eaten...melted in your mouth! Wonderfully tender. Every course was fabulous. Highly recommended. You wouldn't know it was there, tucked in between businesses in a strip mall-type area.

Great place to eat at the beach. Similar to last time we ate there, the food was great with a few exceptions. The ravioli, mac and cheese, and oysters were excellent. We did not care for the French onion soup as much. The service was great but I often couldn't hear my wife talk due to the noise level.

Benjamin was our server and he was awesome. The food was amazing and the dessert was incredible! Went for my last meal home before I left for school and it could not have been more perfect. Great flask punch and helpful staff. We can't wait to go back!

I really hate to write this review, because we have loved Nage for several years . Unfortunately, they have renovated the space (subway tiles everywhere, etc.) and the new acoustic is absolutely unbearable. Even our waiter, who was wonderful, apologized profusely for the awful din. The kitchen is still terrific and imaginative... but, we will not return until there's a renovation that reclaims Nage's role as a fine dining destination. Seriously, folks, if one is planning to go to a nightclu or hot brewpub, then yes, bring on the loud vibe.. But when the food is really fine as it is here, but the noise level is painful and therefore you eat as fast as possible just to escape, what IS the point? I'm so very, very disappointed.

On mini vacation and Made res for evening but came early for happy hour and had dinner at the bar instead as we were enjoying ourselves with Friendly folks to talk to and bartenders, both ladies were really nice and friendly as well. Tried fried olives, salmon bites, their shoestring fries are terrific with a truffle flavor. But the killer was their almond joy creme brûlée with side of shortbread chocolate dipped Marcona almonds dessert. One bite sends you to heaven! Don't judge by the corner strip mall location or the limited ambiance, go try it for yourself.

To start, host made an accommodation for our grandson's travel seat. Steve, our waiter did a terrific job walking us through the meal, and beverage, menus making valued recommendations. Food was absolutely wonderful and the kitchen marked our celebration of an anniversary with a lovely dessert presentation.

We grabbed a last minute reservation on Open Table just because the time worked for us and we liked the name of the restaurant. We were unexpectedly delighted with our choice!! The food was spectacular!! My whole family was delighted with their entree choices. Our appetizer of warm brie with peaches and hazelnuts was fantastic. The desserts were unique and original creations that had a surprising take on classic dessert fare. Our evening was very serendipitous
and we will absolutely return for an encore meal!!

Last two times we have been here we were very disappointed with the seating..
Since becoming a bistro instead of an upscale restaurant, it has become a family
restaurant. There are many families with very young children and also large groups. This makes it hard to have a conversation as it is very noisy. We were not allowed to sit in a booth
as we requested, but put in the middle of the room.

We arrived earlier than our reservation and were seated right away. Our waiter was helpful in negotiating food allergies. The fish was excellent; good cheese platter and cinnamon ice cream. Strange organization on the menu; difficult to find appetizers.

Had many great restaurants to choose from in the Rehoboth, Dewey, and Lewes beach area. Decided on this at the recommendation of 2 other people. Close to our home and easy onsite parking. From the minute we walked in until we finished our meal, the service was excellent. Our server was exceptional, knowing when to come around, knowing all the answers to my many questions about the food and the wine list, which is such a pleasure. If he did not know something, he would try to find the answer.
I ordered a specific fish I never heard of, to which my server explained exactly the type of fish, consistency, and region. It was so tasty and well prepared, this includes the sides. My husband just about licked his plate clean. He ordered crab cakes and he thoroughly enjoyed the side it they were place on (can't remember). We also ordered a mescalin green salad with heirloom tomatoes and dessert. All very good.
All in all it was a great experience. I would recommend to anyone and return myself.

We found the restaurant by using OpenTable to see who had openings at the last minute. The restaurant was a great find. Service was good, food was good (a bit farm to table) - overall a very good experience and we would definitely recommend the restaurant. Here's the thing. The signage that marks the restaurant is not very good. We had been to the shopping center 3 times before and didn't give the restaurant a second thought. It is located in a shopping center with a discount liquor store. The name that is visible on the restaurant is Nage. If you really look, down low, on the front of the restaurant, you will find a Fork and Flask sign. We stopped at the liquor store before we were heading to the restaurant and the GPS told us that the restaurant was very close... We looked around and said - that place?? It is very well done inside, a completely different feel. Give it a try.

Another poor dinner at Nage and thus will be our last. We ate here in June and the food was overcooked and poor in taste, our server kept forgetting our orders and we had to repeat it back to him. We attributed this showing to the recent major changes, and came back last night for dinner with two other couples.
Again the food (chicken) was way overcooked and too tough to eat. The vegetable plate made my wife feel ill. Our server was trying hard but was so slow. The night just dragged out. We complained to the manager, but it fell on deaf ears with nothing more than I am sorry to hear that. We even gave our feedback on the food to the chef, who seemed disinterested. Plates were slow to be cleared, forks and knives were not replaced for the next course, and no one came by to refill water glasses or ask how our meal was.
We asked for the check twice, paid our bill and will not return. Too many other excellent options. Note, Nage was not full on a very busy night in the height of the summer season. Maybe others are coming to the same conclusion.

Over the past few years, I heard so many good things about this restaurant,and I was soo happy to be able to try it! It was everything I expected and more. We had a really nice/knowledgable waiter, who was very helpful and answered our many questions. we went for Sunday brunch and it was delicious! would definitely return for dinner, or a sit at the bar.

We arrived at our reservation time a little before 8:00 and the restaurant, as usual was busy. After 2 1/2 hours, we finally were finished. We constantly reminded the server that we were waiting for our dinner to no avail. After finally being served, my meal was Luke warm. I asked to see the manager, who informed me that this is the way it comes. Steak? Really? No apologies. Steak tartar, maybe. Typically love this restaurant, but if this is the future after an infusion of capital, then we will have to re-think future visits.

Other than desserts, food was mediocre (fish overcooked, appetizers bland). Restaurnat was loud, but service was horrendous. It took an hour between appetizers and entree and all attempts to reach the waiter were futile. Finally, he came over and said our meals will be out shortly. From start to finish, dinner took 2-1/2 hours and this is not fine dining. (Waiter offered to take one dessert off the check and then deducted both. Hardly makes up for the noise level, food and worst of all, the service.

Food was fresh and excellent..service was slow and when our waitress came to us she was hurried and not fully listening. Also the table next to us waited over 15 mins to get water and almost 25 to get bread. Their table and my husband's chair were both rickety.

Very good food and service. Interesting variety of locally sourced offerings and overly creative cocktails. Fantastic, expensive desserts. Happy Hour looks appealing. Great for late dining or appetizers, desserts, drinks.

We have enjoyed going here the last couple of times. First, the crab cakes are out of this world. Plus the plum salsa was delicious. The ok. We ordered the oysters last time we were there and they were great. This time we could not even eat them. Way too salty. We asked one of the staff to take them away
