    My husband and I visited Nelson, BC for a special Mother's Day trip from Bonners Ferry, Idaho. We were very excited to secure a reservation to Pitchfork Eatery. We shared a delicious mug of bone broth and the Warm Root Vegetable Burrata salad. For our main course, we shared the Whole Branzino for Two. Unfortunately for me, I did not know, nor did I ask what ratatouille was. It has tomatoes, onions and peppers, all of which I cannot eat so my husband had to eat it all, and loved it! For dessert, he had the Rose Petal Green Tea creme brulee and I chose the Raw Vegan Dark Chocolate Torte. They were the PERFECT end to a beautiful day spent shopping and eating in Canada!!

    Food is always amazing. Atmosphere is relaxing and very enjoyable. I don’t go out very often to eat; however, when I do, this is the place, great service, quality food, made by a real chef, with culinary skills. The drink menu is also amazing, prices are pretty comparable to going to a pub but with a much more enjoyable experience all the way around, we all work hard for our money so it’s nice to walk away feeling satisfied and a little spoiled.

    It was our 3rd time dining at the Pitchfork Eatery and the first time dining outside. I wish the space was more enclosed as there was little to no protection from the wind. The blankets helped with the cold a bit but we still all had to wear our jackets while dining. That was unfortunate, as we dressed up to come to dinner. All that said, Kerry and I can't wait to come back.

    Best calamari we have ever had and we order it everywhere we go, have never had it that thick but it was tender and the sauce with it was very very good. Service was fantastic just enough trips to the table. My steak was phenomenal my wife's burger not so much she should of had the rabbit. My only complaint was that the daily special was gone and we were the first seating of the night, I was looking forward to the pork Wellington but they were out. Totally one of the best places to eat in Nelson.

    We love pitchfork. The muscles were amazing as always. Portions of the mains felt small this time for the high prices though. Two small medallions of steak for $49….. Service staff were ok but didn’t have a lot to say and didn’t exactly set the stage for a $250 anniversary dinner. Overall great food and kind staff and we will continue to recommend this restaurant.

    Pass on the bruschetta burger - too saucy, messy - flavours did not inspire. Try cooking or pickling the onions in future.
