    We enjoyed the red pepper hummus with vegetables and gluten-free, house-made flat bread. Then we shared the veggie burger. all the food was delicious and we had attentive service. It did get rather loud by the time we left but the glass dividers between the tables gave us privacy and allowed us to be able to still chat and hear each other without straining.

    Right from we arrived the attention to detail was outstanding. They made an effort to set us outside where we had requested to sit. The food came quickly and the service was outstanding. Would definitely go back again especially for the vegan Caesar Salad.

    Food was terrific! Service was inconsistent and there was a sugar shaker brought out instead of a salt shaker…not a huge deal as they remade the order but then we were charged double on the bill and had to have that corrected. But again food was excellent and really great wine list and cocktails!

    Love this restaurant but disappointed tonight. Wine recommendation was ok, but not as delicious as suggested. Nice waitress but she didn’t know about the dish we ordered and wasn’t as responsive to fix it as I would have expected. One Dish was an unpalatable mix of textures that did not work together. Starter was burned… she offered to remake it but would have been better to remove it from our bill, which wasn’t offered as a solution. Lovely atmosphere and lovely service otherwise.

    The greeter moved me to a better table with a great smile. I knew then that I was in for a treat. The menu had Wild White Spring Salmon as an appetizer and a main. Since we never see this beautiful fish in San Diego, I got both. Outstanding preparation on both of them. Great patio and view topped it off.

    There’s something truly special about farm to table restaurants, and Pitchfork doesn’t disappoint. For a great dinner out, spending a little more than normal (farm to table is like that) you will have a lovely meal! It’s a small place, reservations are a must any day of the week. Thanks for having us!

    We felt welcome as soon as we arrived. Highly recommend reservations on the weekend. Patio looked welcoming. We ate inside as all tables were booked outside. Food was amazing. Dessert was the best: Rose petal green tea crème brûlée with a shortbread cookie. Perfect end to a fantastic meal.

    Fairly shabby service: wrong food brought with no apology, one item dropped onto floor hitting the customer at the next table also with no apology. Food, as previously at Pitchfork, was overly complicated. Far too many favour combinations on each plate. Trying too hard, need to just simplify somewhat. Same with draft beer list - one hazy (hence fruit-heavy) IPA and two fruit beers out of four? Lovely atmosphere (inside) and prices as expected. Good menu too - if the options were toned down a little.

    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. ;-)

    It was so great to see so many servers we hadn't seen in a while. Thanks to Gabby and Matthieu for their suggestions and quick service! The food was delicious, but not exceptional this time--just a little cold by the time we were served and not as many interesting flavors that I remember from eating here in the past. Though we were away from the rest of the crowd outside, the space was a still a bit noisy--I guess folks were just as excited as we were to be able to eat out again!!!

    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!
