A word from III Forks - Chicago
III Forks, one of the nation's USDA Prime Steakhouses, is located at the Village Market in Lakeshore East, just north of Millennium Park in beautiful downtown Chicago. This modern restaurant is simply sizzling with style and provides the perfect setting for upscale dining, rooftop lounging, private parties and special events. III Forks is a contemporary evolution of the classic steakhouse featuring USDA Prime Beef, ocean-fresh seafood and locally sourced Midwest fare. Less than half of one percent of all US beef makes the III Forks Prime quality grade. This leads to great steaks that offer abundant marbling, juiciness, tenderness and superior flavor.

III Forks also offers an impressive venue for private affairs. Three private dining rooms will be available for corporate meetings, seated social gatherings and cocktail receptions. The rooftop lounge is also available for private parties of up to 150 guests.

Diner Reviews
  • "I truly enjoyed my dinner at III Forks. I was staying at the Fairmont and this gem is located a quick walk way next to Millennium Park. The Service was competent and friendly. There is a good wine list and the food was excellent. I especially enjoyed my appetizer which was fried squash blossoms stuffed with truffled corn served over some micro greens dressed in a hint of flavored oil. When I return to Chicago I will be sure to stop by and eat here again."

  • "We just moved to Chicago and I took my wife here for our 1st Anniversary. We had a drink and the brussel sprouts upstairs before dinner, which were both amazing. We went downstairs for dinner and our food was amazing, but our waitress was awful. She was itching her head and you could see the dander. Every question we asked her about the food (our first time here), she gave an obvious generic answer that didn't offer any insight into the preparation of the food. When my wife asked her about the ribs (we had steak the night before at a wedding), the waitress responded, "I wouldn't get those." Instead of explaining how they were prepared like she asked. We loved the food! But I don't know if we would return because of the service."

  • "We were very disappointed in the food here. One steak had to be sent back because it was over done. The replacement wasn't much better. The tenderloin salad was wilted, overdressed and had little chunks of steak. Our waiter was overly friendly and trying too hard to be our friend/entertainer. The rooftop was very nice."

  • "We decided to head to III Forks for a second time and it did not disappoint. We had the Tuna appetizer and the tomato mozzarella dish for starters. Both were outstanding. Tenderloin tips were perfect and the sea bass was special. Done perfectly, it was fantastic. The restaurant is a hidden gem with a great view and staff. We would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "We have been here twice before but not for dinner. We thought we would give a neighborhood place a go for our anniversary and booked a table. The waiter seemed tp be multi-tasking to the point of being harried. His jacket was tied together with a string and that kind of set the tone. QWe ordered filets and they arrived isolated/dry on a plate. The meat was done to order and a good cut. We had two sides with a marginal serving of one and an over grilled serving of sprouts (fine for us as we like them that way but a turn off for others we thought). All and all III Forks didn't measure up to other Chicago steak houises which is a shame because the property is well done and a nice add to our neighborhood."

  • "I realize this is a steak place, but wish there were more options for smaller entrees or more appetizers to choose from. Why does EVERYTHING have to be ala carte? Two of my colleagues had the lobster roll and both said they did not feel well after that night. Service was fine, but server was not very knowledgable about wines, but did go and ask someone for what I wanted and the suggestion was good. Patio very lovely."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "I really enjoyed my experience. The only one thing I would change is that when you google the restaurant it tells you that the restaurant closed at 11:00 PM on a Monday but it actually closes at 10:00 PM. Other than that, the customer service was great and my food was good. I will be back..."

  • "everything was amazing. the only down side was that the place was sooooo crowded and the food got delayed for a while. i didn't bother me personally, but i believe they can do it faster"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Food is great. The sweet potato hash is very delicious. A hidden gem that's easy to miss if you're not looking for it. The roof top cocktail lounge is great spot with lots of energy. I think they under pour on the glasses of wine...other than that the staff was a pleasure."

  • "My husband and I were looking for a nice upscale choice, with an outdoor 'garden' option. We found III Forks and were glad we did. We were greeted by a very friendly staff, promptly waited on at the bar and the great service continued at dinner. Our waiter was phenomenal, offered the best suggestions. The apps and salads were on the small side, but delicious. It was perfect for not filling up before dinner. We had the scallops and would highly recommend. We split the Tomato & Burrata salad. Again, another HIGHLY recommended item as it was just awesome. My husband had the sea bass and I had the veal chop special. Everything was delicious. III Forks is a steakhouse, but we wanted to try something different. We were not disappointed."

  • "I love that this restaurant is tucked behind all the city clamor, overlooking a park. My friend and I completely enjoyed our food, wine, and service, and the ambience was ideal. I'm sure I'll be bringing more people to discover this gem."

  • " I went here for my anniversary back in May and decided to go back. I planned a girls night out with some relatives and we sat outside. It was a beautiful day! We had six pm reservations and found a table right away. The seating outside is first come first serve. The food took forever but it was good. We ordered appetizers: the hummus was excellent, mushrooms were ok and the crab cakes were good. I ordered shrimp. The asparagus was very bland with no seasoning at all. The shrimp was fried a little too hard for me. The bread pudding dessert was delicious. Our waiter Derrick was wonderful! He was very attentive and very knowledgable of the menu choices! I would go back"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Everything that the six of us ordered was very good. Steak with Parmesan crust, scallops (just a little salty but still very good), pork chop (our guest raved about this one) and chicken. And the sides of six cheese mashed potatoes, fingerling potatoes and asparagus were also very good. The kitchen needed a little help getting the items ordered correct, but the waitress stayed on top of it and errors were quickly corrected. The waitress was also very helpful with specific food recomendations and steak cooking level (medium plus is seared on outside, bright pink in center - and that is exactly how it arrived)."

  • "I went to III Forks with my girlfriends. Two of us started in the bar awaiting the rest of our group. Bartender was friendly, expedient, gave sound advice. We were seated promptly (we had reservations although we were a little late) once our group was complete. Bread was very good. Salads were fresh and well put together with flavors that went together well. The ahi tuna app was delicious and generously portioned. The burger was huge and had to be deconstructed to eat. The diner with the burger didn't care for the bun but the burger itself was delicious. Fries very good. Salmon entree was very good (not quite excellent) with a fantastic sauce they called chimichurri. Salmon was paired with a tasty rice. We skipped dessert. Overall very good"

  • "do yourself a favor and go to another steakhouse! This location isn't as good as the Texas ones!! This place is a FAIL"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The chief at this restaurant knows what he's doing. The bread freshly baked, the apple walnut salad & vinegar was out of this world. Our highest quality 100% prime steaks were really genuine prime and that taste and meat texture was obvious as you indulged. A little pricey over all but well worth it for a high quality meal and perfectly executed service."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Our server was terrible - we felt forgotten 1/2 way through our dinner - he didn't offer any drink specials or app specials - we had to hear them from the next table, as that server was giving it to those customers. Our reservation was early 6 PM, restaurant was dead. Server never did offer dessert. When we left, we told the hostess who didn't seem too concerned. While leaving - it was pouring down rain - I asked to borrow an umbrella to run out to taxi - they said they didn't have any - they should consider having one, would be good for customer service."

  • "Service was good. Food could have been hotter. Diners were not told that Brussel sprouts were grilled and they were extremely dry. Would probably not return."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I was visiting this restaurant as much for business as pleasure. The design, atmosphere, and food all met my expectations. The upstairs outdoor deck is a special treat. Service, however, lacked at the end. The waitress seemed to forget me when bringing the check."

  • "Good tasting food, albeit waaay overpriced. Overall it was worth a try."

  • "The food was delicious and the service was prompt and courteous. I will definitely be visiting this restaurant again the next time I'm in Chicago."

  • "My steak wasn't as flavorful as some I've had in the past but overall it was very good. The steak was cooked perfectly, even though the waitress said that they usually undercook vs. peoples' expectations. I wouldn't say there was anything particularly distinctive about III Forks that sets it apart from the many other high end steakhouse options."

  • "My husband and I visited III Forks - Chicago for the first time this past weekend. We were celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary. The view of the park was perfect, the food was delish and our service was perfect. We had Zachariah as our waiter and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening because of his friendliness and superb service! We can't wait to come back again and sit on the rooftop!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "This was our first visit -- wanted to sit outside on their beautiful patio. Nice quiet patio overlooking a park. Service was very spotty and the prices were outrageous! Sorry if I'm going to pay those kind of prices, I expect a notch above service! Will not be going back! Ended up just getting a few appetizers. Food was good, but definitely not worth the price!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The first time we visited is was very good. That's why we went back. Tonight my wife and I dined there again. It was dreadful. The noise was awful; you had to shout to have any conversation, and because everyone was doing this the level of shouting just built and built! Even when having a row, my wife and I don't shout at each other from 3 feet! We moved two times, and the third location was a little better. Most of the food was OK, but only OK. I ordered an Irish coffee, but no one there knew how to make it! I had had it on our first visit, but it must have been the Irish coffee man's night off tonight. If you hit a good night this restaurant is great, but we will not be risking it again."

  • "I took my wife here for our four anniversary andshe loved it. She had the tenderloin tips and I had the roasted chicken, both pf which came with mashed potatoes, and we shared the sautéed spinach. Everything was great! I feel like we had the best table in the building and from the look of it there wasn't a bad seat in the place. We had two very knowledgeable and friendly servers. We will definitely be going back soon. P.s the bread pudding was an excellent way to end the night."

  • "My husband and I went there on our one year wedding anniversary. He grew up in the area, but I had never been to Chicago. It was fantastic! Our waitress was friendly, fun and very knowledgeable. The food was amazing. We had the onion rings, which are the biggest that I have ever seen, but also the best and a seafood sampler that was excellent to start. The steak was perfect and the sides were just right. The lobster mac and cheese was fabulous. Everything was very filling. I loved the setting and the view. It was the perfect place to spend our anniversary. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "The restaurant is beautiful, but the food wasn't impressive that night. Lamb was way overcooked, grouper seemed overly salty and the lobster mac wasn't warm. We had a great time, but perhaps it was an off night."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We ordered the bone in fillet and had to send it back to the kitchen. The temp on the steaks was wrong they were ordered medium rare and medium rare+. They came out blue, cold in the middle and barely seared. The potatoes came out with melted cheese on top and cold potatoes underneath. For the cost $58 a steak I would never go back. Chicago has way too many good steak houses to waste your money here!!!!!"

  • "We anticipated a great steak dinner and a lovely ambience. Neither happened. The restaurant was nicely appointed with welcoming people ... But the kitchen and the wait staff had "communication problems" which resulted in 45 minutes between our appetizer (seared scallops that arrived almost cold) and our salad. The steak was not a rich taste. Not at all what we expected for this highly rated restaurant. So sad. "

  • "The service POOR, no training at all! Couldn't make a Cosmo that even resembled a Cosmo. For such a high priced restaurant it was so subpar. The special steak, a bone in filet was $95.00, shocking sticker price when got the check!! The worst thing of all that $95.00 steak came to table raw, ordered medium rare! The server never returned to table when food arrived to check on food! If you can't cook a $95 steak to perfection you have no business cooking at all!"

  • "Other than the difficulty in reaching this place either by foot or by car, this place continues to impress. The food, drink, and service are impeccable. If you're lucky enough to get a room along the window as we did, you can enjoy a great view of the secluded Lakeshore East Park. Our business dinner fit in nicely with other business diners, what appeared to be a ladies night out, and a few families. Put this steak on your top list too."

  • "I had the Lamb Chops, and they was awesome. I would definitely go back. I had the smothered mushrooms they was good, but they were a little bit to salty. The overall setting and view was tremendously beautiful. I give this a 10+"

  • "We went on Mother's Day for the first time and I was surprised when they had a special menu and really no options for kids, except smaller versions of the adult special menu. I was also surprised that we could not order from the regular menu. If you are going to be open for Mother's Day there is a pretty good chance that people are going to bring their children, you should offer options for them. Additionally, if you are not going have your regular menu you should advertise that on Open Table so that people are not surprised when they arrive."
