    Being a foodie family from Nelson.. We have enjoyed this restaurant since it opened. Some things have changed, new chef, so dishes are not the exact same. However change can be good, and having been here four times this season with friends and family. Nobody has said but the best about Pitchfork, its service and awareness of their servers are impressive. The food is pretty good also. ;-)

    The food, ambiance and understanding of the staff was out of this world. Having a toddler in a place like this is nerve racking but the staff was so welcoming. The food was phenomenal and the cocktails divine!

    This is a charming, "true Nelson" experience. The food is fresh and delicious and Matthieu's service was exceptional. The heirloom tomato tart is to die for and the pulled chicken sandwich was outstanding. My husband did not enjoy the pork belly but it might just be a preference thing. The restaurant was noisy so it was hard to talk but we enjoyed the ambience. It was raining, otherwise we would have been out on the beautiful patio. Definitely what we'd recommend...outdoors if you can!

    We love the food at this place and the service is excellent. We appreciate the thoughtful consideration they have with placing diners with their dogs in the outside area. However, the loud disco music was relentless and made conversation virtually impossible, as if it was a European beat bar. I kept thinking how much nicer the overall experience would be with a deejay who was sensitive to the mood of the crowd, playing softer, more chill music in line with the food and service. It's not a cheap place, so sitting there with that driving - and to be honest, not that great - music so loud was really a shame. It might help keep staff moving quickly - I would hate to think it is a strategy to turn over tables quickly - but a mar on an otherwise stellar eating experience. My "yes" below comes with the caveat that, if you wish to have a conversation with your meal, you might ask to be seated somewhere within the place where that might be possible. Otherwise, this is not the place for chatting while dining.

    Food was fantastic - even a simple burger was elevated. We had some delicious mocktails and cocktails. Our waitress was the right blend of charm and sass, and above all expert in her recommendations. It would be nice to have a few more wines by the glass - but that is just a little pickiness. Call or go early to get an outside table on the patio with a spectacular view.

    Eatery is a proper adjective to describe this restaurant as it could be considered a mid-tier establishment that is more upscale than a diner but does not make the grade for fine dining. First, ensure that you take a device with you that can access the internet with you as there are no menus, you are expected to download it from their website, 'as it changes often', according to the staff. It took a while to us to peruse the menu as we only had one device between us, and the one item that had the most appeal was unavailable. To start with we spilt a salad that was creative, with items one does not normally find in other restaurants. My wife had the calamari and enjoyed it, I had to settle for a burger, which was nothing more spectacular than I could make on my own grill, and definitely not what one would expect when eating out, however the garlic aioli with the french fries was an unexpected difference. When ordering food that is complimented with different wine styles, we tend to go by the glass instead of ordering a bottle. Their wine list in this mode is limited, it consisted of a lot of expensive BC wines and the glass serving is short at 5 oz and pricy at nearly $20. Wine temperatures for the white were acceptable, but the red was on the edge and could have been cooler. There is one table for a large group that tends to be loud, and despite being in a different room we were drowned out by the noise. However, it appears that it is one of the better establishments in Nelson.

    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!

    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.
