South Fork Grille Ratings and Reviews

My ossobuco very little meat on it, maybe 3 decent sized bites. My wife's divers scallops on a bed of risotto had very little taste. Service was excellent and we like the layout of the restaurant but this trip did not match the quality of previous ones. Maybe the second team was in the kitchen as it was a Monday night. Generally we like the restaurant so we'll be back and hope this was just an anomaly

We brought our friends with us this time and they agreed that the early dining is quite a deal. All four us loved our selections and the service was great. It got very loud at about 7:30 pm, so take advantage of the early dining which includes a bottle of nice wine.

Third visit in the last month. Not as good as the previous visits. Less food this time in my wife's scallops and too much rice with my salmon.
Our friends did enjoy it as this was their first time and hadn't experienced the food before.

I thought that the food was just OK--about a 4 on a 1-10 scale. My NY Strip was slightly overcooked (not horribly), but not tender at all. If it cost $20-24, i wouldn't complain. I asked for a side of sautéed spinach--again a 4. It was cooked about right, but no or little seasoning, butter , or salt. The best part of the dinner was the potato side. My wife got the Mediterranean Pasta with shrimp and loved it. We sat outside. The weather was great, which is why we chose to sit outside, but the tables overlook a parking lot--not much to look at.

Very nice modern interior with quite a good number of tables outside. Service was excellent. My wife had trout, properly cooked and my pork chop was tasty but a bit chewy I wonder if it was grilled off site and microwaved. It was a good meal, though, and we'll return, I am sure

Like this restaurant particularly for its seafood, accompanied by a good portion of tasty risotto. Great salads as well. Ask for dining on the patio, under the awning. Inside is always a bit too loud. Calamari is good as hors d'oeuvre, scallops particularly well done.

Terrible business practices. My wife and I were there last night for dinner ordered 2 drinks app and dinner. Food was avg. nothing special. When the check came there was a charge for 2 rocks 2 dollars when I ask our waitress she said it for ICE she remove it. ICE Really . I am a full timer in estero fl we have dinner out with friends 2-3 times a week ,I would never come back to a place Trying to Rip me off . At this place better look closely at your check.

We went here as it was close to the venue we were attending that night and the yelp reviews were decent. We called for a reservation and the soonest they could get us in was 6:45. We arrived at 6:05 and they seated us outside. (We were warned that it might rain, but it wasn't going to. They just had to make up a new table.) Hostess gave us out menus and it was about 5-7 minutes before we saw our waitress. We ordered drinks, our appetizer and the entrees all at once as it was clear they were understaffed on waitress (but had 3 people at the front.) Once the large party next to us left our waitress was more prompt and we had no other issues. The appetizer came out quickly (baked brie,) however our entrees did take a bit longer than I had anticipated. Strip steak had a wonderful sear but it was bland and a bit more towards well done than the medium I ordered. The real gem was the small potatoes that accompanied it. She had the pork chop and loved it, although she found hers to also not be seasoned and just relying heavily on the accompaniments. It wasn't bad by any means, it was just what I would expect from a restaurant found in a shopping center.

Our server was excellent, food came out in record time. We thoroughly enjoyed our early bird dinners. Great price for what we received! The only downside was that we ate outside (because it was much too cold inside) and the fans outside were so noisy we could hardly hear each other. There must be other fans you can install that are quieter?

Second time at this restaurant. First visit was a much better experience. Service at this visit was very slow despite having 3 children with us. The food was also somewhat disappointing when compared to previous. Probably won't be back.

South Fork has been such a family favorite. Chef leaves and they don't know who they are or what they want to become. Favorites of ours: Duck confit, Scallops have become unrecognizable dishes. This place is not going to survive if they can't get their stuff together quickly. Same good servers, but the menu is a shadow of it's former self. I could offer other bad critique but we how they can get their stuff together quickly. We won't be back until we hear of diners who have better experiences.
