    We had the calamari (best I’ve ever had), mussels (yum) and portabello mushroom (delicious). Server was very efficient in spite of it being busy. Super friendly, not sure of his name but he was Parisian. Bit of a wait for drinks to be ordered but again think staffing issues due to COVID. Great ambience! Definitely gourmet food and perfect for a date night!

    Food and drinks creative and good though pricey. Service was excessively perfunctory. Planning to to order dessert and another drink but left early because of poor service. Probably won’t go back

    We had heard good things about Pitchfork, so we decided to have lunch there before leaving Nelson. The food is wonderful. I'd highly recommend the mushroom tart - innovative and totally delicious. With a glass of sparkling Okanagan wine, it was a perfect lunch.

    The mushroom tart was fabulous as always, but the breaded mushroom appetizer (?) tasted very fatty and bland. My friend was disappointed with the arctic char entree. Usually brilliant food, but this visit not so much

    Food was okay, the wine was outrageously expensive. Duck was over cooked in the duck salad. Poutine was too salty! Price for the entire meal was way too much money for what you actually get.

    We've never been disappointed by the food at Pitchfork. Their dishes are imaginative , full of flavour and arrive hot. This night we were a bit surprised about the time it took to take our order and and finally receive our food. I surmise there may have been a staff shortage problem. That said, we thoroughly enjoyed our tasty meal when it did arrive and were quite satiated.
