Always great food and pleasant surprises offering unique dishes. Living in San Francisco you come to expect quality food when dining out. Fork & Love delivers.

This restaurant offers gourmet dishes that would stand up to very rigorous standards. The dishes are all original, creative and interesting. We particularly liked the Brussels sprouts salad which was a variation on Caesar salad.

Nice atmosphere, food presentation and a real surprise for the remoteness of the town. Saturday night wine pairing dinner was excellent. Sunday morning brunch had unique touches to old favorites - Biscuits and Gravy - not to miss!

My husband and I ate here before and after a week long backpacking trip in Yosemite. Both times, our meals were fresh and delicious. Would definitely eat here next time we're in town!

Even in the low season it get get busy which will tell you how good the food is. Try the home made ginger ale, really nice and refreshing after a day walking. We went for 3 starters for our dinner and the stir fried sprouts are a must have. The staff are helpful if you need time to pick what... More

We stayed at the Hotel Charlotte during a visit to Yosemite as a birthday trip. We ate at the hotel's restaurant, Fork & Love, and are very happy with our decision. The food was fabulous, the staff were attentive, and personable, and we received complimentary cocktails due to the birthday celebration. We recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area.

Stopped and had a cocktail called an old pal with the wife before eating some place else. The menu just wasn't for us even though there were a lot of people eating, we just wanted Mexican food.

This was a wonderful restaurant. The food was great, the server was friendly, and we were able to dine with our dog, who was with us on this vacation. Highly recommend this restaurant.
