The Silver Fork proves that size DOESN’T matter. They may only have 25 seats, but they sure do offer some of the finest food you’ll ever eat.

We arrived for an on-the road one night stay in Manchester. Lucky for us, it was mid- week, so we were able to get a rerservation, but only at 6:30 PM. Not our favorite time for dinner. However, we were grateful even before we finished....More

This was our first return visit to The Silver Fork since we first dined there 3 years ago, and it was as fabulous as we remembered. Let's begin with the pretty room, the terrific background music (at just the right volume) and the highly personalized...More

I'm very lucky that I was able to get a reservation at this 6 table restaurant a couple weeks in advance of our Manchester stay during a slow tourist season in early November. Every dish my husband and I had was phenomenal - tuna carpacchio,...More

We found this place based on Tripadvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed! Definitely a place to make reservations in advance, though, as they fill up quickly. The food itself was very good, but the service, wine, and hospitality was what really made the dinner...More

This cozy restaurant really knocked our socks of. The chef has been influened heavily by his time spent in both Germany and Puerto Rico. I can definitely say I've never been to a restaurant before that combined these 2 inspirations, while also embracing the farm...More

This is a very small place so reservations are a MUST before you get up here. The food, ambience, and staff were excellent. I had Veal Oscar which was to die for and we had the bread pudding that you had to order early which...More

Reviews of this place are topnotch but we were not hugely impressed despite chef's reputation and real creative mixing of German and Caribbean tastes. Too heavy for us. Sweet intimate atmosphere but food not matching the price.

Casual but not yard clothes. I would say what you would wear to church, but I have seen jogging clothes there. Clean, no holes something that you are not embarrassed to be caught in.
