    After a long day of pondering Van Gogh masterpieces and cruising through the canals, the last thing you’ll want is to decide what to eat for dinner. Find the best restaurants and make a reservation, so you won’t have to wait around or get ripped off with a sub-par, 20 euro dinner.

    When you go to Paris for the first time, hitting the best restaurants should be your main priority. With reviews on the best restaurants within 30 minutes, you'll be sure to find an option you'll enjoy.

    A busy life will mean you won't always have time to cook. If you still want to enjoy delicious French cuisine, you can always use TheFork to look up the best restaurants in a 10, 20, or 30-mile radius.

  • Flawed app, and dishonest customer service. Oct 1, 2021

    By billsmart58
    I travel 100 days a year, and tried this app on a recent trip to Mallorca. On one occasion these bozos confirmed a reservation at a restaurant that was closed, ruining our evening. Blamed it on the restaurant, tried to bribe me with “Yums”. On another the app converted a reservation for 2 into 20, created a huge problem. I get there and the restaurant expects me to pay $1000 for thefork’s blunder. On another, the email confirmation says TheFork will bill me 1euro if I don’t go to the restaurant, then they fraudulently tried to bill my card 100euro, though I ate at the restaurant, and sent them a copy of my bill. These guys have a amateur app, sure, but their slimy business practices are the bigger problem.

    Little things. Suppose I want a Paella place on Madrid. Finding it on the app or the website is very hard. On the site, if you choose a city Madrid and then enter Paella in the type of cuisine you get places in Paris and Milan! On the app, there’s just no way to filter on a somewhat vague a thing like this. Then, for most restaurants you don’t see the full menu. So, if you see an offer and you click for more details you get to see barely anything to decide.

    Bookings are easy with the app - would be good if they told you to set up an account versus signing in on Facebook. Wouldn’t show my bookings until I created an account for some reason. Looking forward to the trip/restaurants and will review again after!

    I travel a lot throughout Europe. Most decent restaurants require a reservation. Using the Fork means I don’t have to call and try to reserve using my horrible Italian, French, or Spanish. Plus, there is often a discount. App works great and is easy to use.

    La Salvaora’s proprietor Jaime Romero offers his patrons a Michelin experience with a very personalized touch for a fraction of the cost. The attention to detail that is put into the selection of dishes with fresh local seafood and produce is impressive. The extensive wine list also has an excellent variety to choose from. This cozy restaurant’s decor allows us to step into an homage of flamenco singers past and present with a sense of elegant simplicity. If you want an excellent meal in the heart of the Carmen neighborhood without paying a fortune, La Salvaora most definitely is the place to go!

  • Two bad experiences in one week Dec 12, 2018

    By Jacinta Legorreta
    If it would work well then the fork app is a great concept but I would most certainly not rely on it (I personally already deleted it). I reserved a restaurant through it and when I arrived at the time my reservation was set in the app, the kitchen and restaurant was closed. The owners apologized and said they’ve been having constant trouble with the app and will discontinue their partnership asap. Second bad experience was a restaurant that you need months of anticipation to reserve in and I did it via the fork. The day of my reservation, without notification and without me clicking a thing, it appeared to be “cancelled”. I couldn’t reserve again since there was no space and no explanation or response to my complaints were received. Furthermore, their offer of restaurants listed is definitely not the best in any city I’ve used it in. Don’t use this app, don’ trust this app.

  • Unreliable outside US Jan 2, 2020

    By thalir85
    I attempted twice to make reservations outside the US and both times the reservation was not available at the time reserved. The first attempt, even the the booking was “confirmed,” the waitstaff informed us that we needed to call them to confirm the booking... in other words, it was NOT confirmed. The second time, I made a reservation that was “confirmed” for 6:00 pm. We show up to the restaurant (after a bit of challenge, because the name and address didn’t match the restaurant), and find out that it doesn’t open until 7:00 pm! I doubt I will use The Fork in the future for reservations, as the service doesn’t actually do what is is supposed to... RESERVE a table!

    This app literally ruined our new years eve (and I understand all of the Spanish reviews). I don't know if there are bots writing reviews for restaurants on this site or what, but our experience of poor food quality and slow, terrible service compared nearly opposite to what was written in reviews. Management has no excuse for being unprepared, and offering a cheap bottle of wine in compensation for a +US$100 meal for 2 is ridiculous. And no discount as stated from using this app.

    From a restaurant perspective, their technology is broken, their staff are beyond useless & their whole business model is based on misdirecting your customer base into their ecosystem to harvest data & massively increase fees a restaurant pays to them. We escaped to a different bookings platform after 3 frustrating weeks & losing hundreds & hundreds of valuable dollars in difficult covid times. If you are a customer, please consider approaching restaurants directly to book. The Fork's a scam.

    A great app with great offers and a easy way to find and reserve restaurants and get good discounts. The only thing I'd like to say as. "Bad part" of it is that for a beginner user, the app sometimes ja not 100% clear that the reservation won't include a discount (it happened to me) and it can be a bit embarrassing.

  • App is ok, the service (The Fork) lacks maturity Sep 10, 2015

    By WJohn
    I use Open Table a lot and love it, this is the European equivalent; however it is just not "up to speed" yet. Confirmation of reservations, booking of loyalty points, and changes in reservations are cumbersome and time consuming. In fact, you cannot change a reservation, you must cancel and start over. I suspect much is due to smaller restaurants, restaurant equipment not connected to technology, etc. The app shows times that are not available or they say available then cancel your reservation, you show up at the restaurant and they didn't know you are coming, etc., etc. It will probably be good in a couple of years; for now, just call or take a chance. This app works fine, it is the actual service that needs flexibility and maturity.
  • Still needs work Oct 3, 2015

    By jelly F
    This app is like 'Open Table' for Europe. i used the web version extensively while traveling in France two years ago and found some great restaurants. Zero glitches - each restaurant had our reservation when we arrived. Unfortunately this app version leaves some obvious gaps . In the web version, you can copy the text into a translation program to understand what you are ordering, but for some reason, the app will not allow you to copy!?? Which brings us to - why not a direct link to a translation program? The app ( like the current web version) only gives a small sampling of the menu'Chef recommends" not a full menu.
