There are not a lot of good dining options in the area, so I'm glad I read the reviews and found this bistro. It is definitely a hidden gem, very trendy and great for foodies who are tired of the same pub food offered everywhere else. The atmosphere is lively and the crowd consisted of locals and visitors alike. Be... More

My wife and I really enjoyed dinner at this bistro. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. Service was also top notch. We will definitely dine here again.

The quality of food is something you would find in downtown Boston, without the Boston prices. The menu changes nightly and is always appealing. The hostess Karen was very accommodating, she is a wealth of knowledgeable about the current events in Rangeley. Our waitress Melissa was also very informative, she grows organic vegetables for the restaurant and climbs Mt. Everest... More

We have had a special meal at this restaurant annually since it opened a few years ago. Am happy to report that the fare and service have improved with each visit. They have a good source for bringing in fresh fish and have focused increasingly on local vegetables - a great thing! We will return again next summer.

Now, I've been "Forks in the air" and the previous restaurants at this location before. However, this time was extra special. We were with some friends and every one of us said how delicious our meal was. I had mac and cheese with braised beef, kale salad and a tomato soup. Both myself and my girlfriends said the tomato soup... More

We have enjoyed many dinners with our family at "The Forks" with lovely Karen as our host, and the last two New Year's Eves with our extended family! The food is delicious and the atmosphere lovely right in the heart of the beautiful village - would it be revealing to admit the expresso martini is divine? (our spoiled kids love... More

Forks in the Air was such a pleasant surprise during our recent trip to Rangeley. We went for dinner on New Years Eve, when they had a 4 course fixed-price menu, and were so blown away with the quality, creativity and value of our meal that we came back the next night to try the regular menu. Both times we... More

I have been a regular visitor to Rangeley for 10+ years and have pretty much hit all the restaurants in Rangeley, Oquossoc and other "nearby" communities. Forks in the Air is the best restaurant, hands-down, for those who appreciate fine dining (although there is nothing fussy about the restaurant and dress is Maine casual, i.e. anything goes). Excellent first-class food... More
