South Fork Grille Ratings and Reviews

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.
Very Sad South Fork has been such a fami ...
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.

Disappointed that Open Table did not mention summertime special that ended ar 5:45....online it mentioned no reservations available for 5:30....Nevertheless, waitress checked and we were allowed early special because we were early for our 6:00 reservation. Wine and food were good...my wife loved the salmon!

Had no idea what to expect when making our reservation and weren't we pleasantly surprised? The "early bird" menu, and No, they do not refer to it as that...was terrific. My South Fork Grill salad was one of the best, freshest salads I have eaten in a long time. The flat iron steak was flavorful and oh, those potatoes they sat on.....delicious!
Highly recommend this place.

South Fork is our kind of place, an exciting menu, great service, and stunning presentations at very reasonable prices. A good night at SF begins with Maria as your waitperson. She sparkles! Knows the menu and is fun to interact with. She recommends the Beef Tartare. We go for it. She recommends the Duck dish. I go for it. Dawn orders the amazing scallops. Apparently Chef was so happy that I ordered all of his special dishes that he came out to the table and introduced himself. It's that kind of place: happy, upbeat, and filled with beautiful people. We have become once a week patrons at SF.

5 ladies who lunch had a delightful afternoon at South Fork Grille. The staff was attentive and informed us of the specials and make recommendations. The menu offered a nice assortment, reasonably priced and all the lunches were delicious and we enjoyed the restaurant's atmosphere. I highly recommend it.

The food was ok but he service was TERRIBLE ! We asked the waitress about the short ribs and she said," I really cannot tell you because I do not eat meat". REALLY ? Is this what a waitress should say I ask you? The rest of the night there where 6 tables filled, several wait staff floating around and a manger who we finally came over after 30 minutes and we asked "where is the bread?" Oh, I did know you wanted it he said. Our waitress was MIA until she brought the main dishes.
I also told them in advance it was my husband's birthday and they said and did nothing.
Not worth a return visit. We have said this the 2 times we ate here previously and also experienced bad service ...guess this puts the nail on the coffin!

We came for a meal with my Aunt who was in town from the other coast...Tremendous value for three meals and had an amazing experience...Our server, who's name escapes me was especially attentive and we enjoy coming to SFG any chance we get...Highly recommend the mussels appetizer, as well as the brie...For entrees, go with the Spare Ribs, Gnocchi Bolognese or the Lamb Sliders!

My husband & I ordered the filet mignon with fingerling potatoes & asparagus. The steaks were tender $cooked to perfection as were the accompaniments. We shared a wedge salad which was crisp & fresh. Our dining experience with South Fork Grille is always perfection...this was no exception...delicious & enjoyable...

The food was excellent. The waitress was very good. Never wrote anything down and got the orders correct. She advised me about the sweet potato side that was delicious. She did mention there was roasted peppers in the side. Which there was not. There was a roasted tomato with the meal which was delightful. Learned about there early bird which I think we will go back and try.

We eat here a lot and this evening, we brought first time guests. We are never disappointed with food or service. There was a problem with one of the entrees and it was quickly and cheerfully taken care of. We will continue to patronize this restaurant year round.

The place was noisy and the flys were awful. And we were eating inside!!!!! If the dinningroom
Had that many flys, I can't imagine what the kitchen looked like!!!
Service was outstanding and friendly. Food was just ok, no reason to go back
Totally enjoyable evening!
We met friends for a casual evening dining experience and were rewarded with a pleasant night, excellent and cheerful service, superb food and an overall terrific time. We will most definitely be back and having previously had lunch here as well, we know this was a typically great experience!!
