    I love the pitchfork! Good food and fabulous cocktails. DJ was a little loud for the space. I liked the music but would have liked it a little more in balance with the space. My favourite Nelson restaurant !

    Group of 6 at the high top table…secluded and able to enjoy our little space away from others…almost like private dining! Fish was perfectly cooked as was the duck and chicken. Excellent meal.

    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.

    I really wanted to give the food five stars because the calamari was excellent the two burgers were excellent but the steak was chewy. The server did ask how everything was and I said the steak tastes excellent but it’s chewy… For $38 it shouldn’t be. Otherwise everything else was great

    The calamari was delicious! & different from the typical restaurant fare. The poutine with brisket was so, so good. Hummus- Yum & Mushroom burger Yum! Sweet atmosphere & the glass partitions only added to the ambiance & accommodate conversation. *Make sure you are aware that their dinner menu is Not available before 5pm. Seriously. We still couldn’t access it at 4:45pm. Our waiter was exceptional but the host had the unpleasant job of letting patrons know your table was also reserved for someone else after 2 hours - that’s fine but he KEPT telling us. It was Very off putting- definitely felt like we weren’t very welcome & we were being hurried before we even ate. Luckily our waiter was super chill & absolutely deserving of the tip. She saved our evening out & we still left in Plenty of time.

    I always enjoy Pitchfork and maybe I haven't visited for a while. I thought the entrees list seemed a little limited which was a weee disappointing. We stuck with the more interesting appetizers because of it. Love the ambiance and service always.
