Diner Reviews
  • "Ambiance is something badly needed in the area and Fork brings it. The food was good and the place was busy, so you felt like you were a part of something. The seating isn't particularly well suited for bigger groups or ultra comfortable. Because of the number of people, it really felt like the meal dragged on a while. Our server was attentive, but it felt like there wasn't enough of her to go around. Overall, definitely a place I'd go back to. With this online reservation we were seated within seconds, but next time I would look for a less brisk opportunity."

  • "We love Fork! This summer we have taken all our out of town guests for a visit to enjoy the wonderful food that Fork provides. I, especially love the BCS salad but anything on the menu is very good and yummy. I will definitely return to taste other items on the menu, one that caught my eye is the chicken on waffles on Tuesdays. Oh! the dessert to have is the Butter cake. It is served warm with a raspberry sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, what can be better then that. The table and atmosphere, table and waiter was excellent, it was a great time."

  • "We went to Fork for Father's Day Brunch and since then we have been there for a quick lunch/drinking and now dinner. The food is wonderful and I have yet to find a dish that I didn't like. Heather our server was very professional but did not hover so we had time to talk and finish our meal without feeling that we were being hurried. Plan to make Fork our date night go to."

    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The dining room was so loud with music and diners that I couldn't hear my wife across the table from me, and each time we tried to speak with the waitress, she had to lean way in to hear us. For the price, the food was mediocre, there was little flavor and it tasted like the chef doesn't use salt at all. Not what we were expecting, pretty disappointed."

  • "The Prime rib sandwich was outstanding however the fries were old the tacos were very tasty maybe too many tables for one server"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Our group of 5 had an early dinner, and the restaurant was already filling, especially the outdoor dining. The food was very good, and the service was even better. I'd recommend Fork to anyone looking for a bit of local flair."

  • "We stopped for a night in Boise on our second annual trip to bike in the Rockies. We chose Boise for two reasons, to ride on their fantastic Greenbelt bike path along the river and to eat at Fork. It was wonderful dinner, again. Delicious meal and outstanding staff."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "I had lunch at The Fork and had a great experience. However, I will never return for dinner because of the noise level, service from a too busy waitperson, and we were crowded into a very small corner table. We ate in a hurry just to get out of there because it was not pleasant."

  • "I love the location and decor. Two friends and I came for lunch and had a nice experience. This is my third trip and I have yet to be wowed by the food. I had the urban burger and it was fine but certainly not the best in Boise."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Our server Matthew was the best: professional, knowledgeable about the food he was serving, friendly and made the experience very enjoyable. Food was delicious!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "My parents and 90 year old grandmother were in town and we ate here on their last night. My grandmother is not the easiest to please when it comes to going out to eat and she loved everything about the service and food. The filet was excellent. My sister is allergic to dairy and eggs and the server was very patient and helpful in allowing her to make a creative choice. Overall a great experience and will definitely go back."

  • "Best steak I have had in quite a while. The only downside was the red wine by the glass selection. It was lacking in selections and quality of wines offered. One Zinfandel we sent back."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We had a great experience on the 4th. The food service was very attentive, but not hovering or disruptive. We shared a Prime Rib dinner - more than enough for two - and it was prepared perfectly! The fried cheese curds for starters are not to be missed."

  • "The food and service at Fork were fabulous. I will definitely visit every time I get to go to Boise!"

  • "Great table, server okay, sat for a while to get her to check on our order, Great food with excellent selection, enjoyed the Bloody Mary bar."

  • "Parmigiano Fries are very inconsistent. Yes Mojito are made with mint but they use way too much. Butter Cake, you must save room for it. Spinach Pasta and Apple-barrel Roasted Chicken both divine. French Dip small portion not worth the price. Overall a nice place, fun and upbeat and tasty."

  • "We've on two precious occasions to get into Fork but have always been told there were no tables available, so we thought it must be a great place to eat. We made a reservation & anxiously awaited the evening. Upon arriving we were taken to the back corner & placed against a wall (table for 2). The table next to us was open & we thought maybe it was reserved for a larger party. But 5 min after we were squished into our table another party of two was seated there. Did I mention that our table was so high we needed phone books to sit on? The food was mediocre & we were overcharged....not impressed."

  • "Very good food and service. Unique menu items and flavors."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • " Had the prime rib yesterday could not see the meat. Looked as if it had been dipped in au ju or fried in a pan. Not as tender as expected, lose the parmesean and rosemary, too much when in is allready on the fries. In Idaho there is an unwritten law that potatoe seasoning must not overpower that great Ifaho Potatoe taste. And they must be fresh not from a holding pan. My wifes fillet was Superiem.I'm having that next time. Still our favorite place in a city center alive with great choices. The type of service usualy only dreamed about. The staff, which feels like a family, wecomes you into a consistantly positive dining experience. Thanks guys."

  • "We can always depend on Fork for fabulous service and food that is simply divine and bursting with flavor. We discuss going other places, but we always end up here and are never disappointed."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Came specifically for burgers. Ordered the kids pasta - very bland and watered down. Little one had 1/4 of my burger instead."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "This is a cool restaurant in an old bank building that serves amazing foodie but not finicky dishes. I was disappointed that it took them a long time to communicate back to me after ordering that they were out of the fish plate that I wanted, but I'm glad I ended up with the roasted beet and cheese plate because it was incredible. My husband got the fish tacos and they were amazing as well. Cocktails are inspired and herby (yes, they use the big ice balls). Overall it was very very crowded, and on a Tuesday night no less, so it is clearly the place to be in Boise. Make a reservation, you'll be glad you did."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "If you're into people watching this is your place when outside dining is permitting. Great ambiance and an eclectic menu that offers something for all foodie types. Although Fork offers some interesting dinner entree selections, this place is probably a better choice for those who simply want drinks, appetizers, burgers or sandwiches. service was decent but at times a bit overbearing. I think our server was flirting with the teenaged girls in our party so he spent a lot of time checking in and filling water glasses that really didn't require filling. I will return but likely stick to the more simpler food items on the menu or just have a drink :)"

  • "Great food and excellent service. Our waiter Chris was extremely personable and knowledgeable about food and drink. Both outdoor and indoor venues are welcoming and comfortable. The location is great. An easy walk from the Hampton Inn where we stayed."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Good food and value. Service was very slow, but that might be because of a large, ~20, person table just behind us. Our server would pass us several times without stopping for our requests. Noise was so great our table of 4 had great difficulty hearing our own conversations. I'd go again but if I see the same results, then I'll strike this one off of the list."

  • "The Sunday Brunch now available at Fork is really delicious. The BAM Omelette was so good. We went with a group of friends and had two babies with us, and it was easy to dine with infants in tow. So glad to have Fork in Boise!"
