Yelp users are mixed about North Fork Restaurant, which currently holds 3.5 stars out of four reviews on the site.

Yelper Brad G., who reviewed North Fork Restaurant on Feb. 9, wrote, "We started with the Brussels sprouts with bacon and garlic. They were deliciously roasted and crispy with a nice saltiness that hit the spot. We then continued on to the slow grilled lamb chops, which were amazingly tender and juicy and went great with the basil sauce that was beautifully plated. The cauliflower crusted pie was super crunchy, and the edge of the crust had a surprising (but nice) bit of spice."

Patrick S. noted, "North Fork was great! Amazing atmosphere and service. I had a cauliflower crusted pie and diver scallops; it was so delicious. The menu looks great!"

North Fork Restaurant is open from 6 p.m.-11 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 10 a.m.-11 p.m. on weekends. (It's closed on Monday.)
