    It's a rare restaurant that always gets it right. Sure, I've had some meals that were better than others, but I have NEVER had a bad meal here. Their wine list is extensive and quite good, especially if you know what to look for. Their steaks are always cooked correctly. Service, always top notch. You will always leave satisfied.

    From the moment we entered, the experience was pleasant. The true experience began when we sat down though. As soon as the server ( Jordan) came to the table, I saw that this would be an unmatched experience for my wife and I. We came out to celebrate her birthday, and in her own words " The Bar has been set high".

    Our waitress did not pour the wine so we had to refill our glasses. My husband ordered the salmon Caesar and she brought a ceasar without salmon. She had to erring our bill three times before she got it right. She hovered over us to the point of interrupting what my husband and I were talking about. The ceasar was without taste. Bread was just crumbs all over the table. It was our anniversary and everything was substandard from service, food and decor.

    Took our daughter for birthday dinner ... We were seated in a back room, which was practically empty ... unusual, I thought, for the nite before the Red River Shootout ... turned out to be a nice quiet space, where we could barely hear music from the piano bar ... Salad and bisque were very good ... filets all around; not exactly cooked to perfection, but acceptable ... very tender as expected ... Sides were delicious ...Wait staff very attentive ... Chocolate cake was huge, and got a 4-star rating from my wife and daughter ...

    This was my first time at III Forks. I had been looking forward to trying it out because I've heard nothing but great things from friends/family members. The restaurant itself is very nice, had a cool band playing sinatra-esque music, and the service was great. What was just so-so was the food, specifically the dessert. The steak was good, but not mind blowing, and certainly not worth the $70 that was charged. The dessert was bland (got the cheesecake and the large chocolate cake), and didn't have a lot of character or flavor. I was at Bob's a week prior to my visit to III Forks and Bob's was perfect in every way. My money will go towards Papa Brothers, Bob's or Ruth's Chris before III Forks.

    My husband and I enjoyed a Friday "date-night" at III Forks. Our table near the fireplace, served by Francisco, began the evening. The shrimp cocktail with 2 sauces was perfect. Our filet mignon's were perfect. I had a couple of the BEST martini's ever!!! Yes, our bill was close to $250 but we are not complaining.. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

    III Forks is our go to place to celebrate. We took our son (his birthday) and our out of town guest from California. Both wanted "big steak." You guys are always consistently good. Loved Chad's suggestion of the ahi and he made a shrimp cocktail plate for us to share. Our guest was duly impressed with his Tomahawk steak. I love your Chilean Sea Bass, despite the men thinking I was crazy not ordering your fabulous steaks! Chad really made our evening. Superb and attentive service.

    My wife and I went to Three Forks for her birthday, and may I just say that everything that we experienced from the moment we pulled up to the moment we left was perfect. The food was great, especially their famous 3 Forks salad, the atmosphere was great, they have several dining rooms with different themes, but most notably our server was top notch. From the get go he was energetic, informative, and very responsive. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

    My Brothers and I visit Dallas every year for a Cowboy game and visit this restaurant. We added one of our brothers this year to the mix and it was his first time to what we referred to as the best Steak House in Dallas. That being said they scored 50% on the meals made for us. The Halibut was fantastic along with one Brothers Steak and Lobster but the 2 Filets were completely undercooked and had to be sent back. Upon there return one was completely overcooked and the other still undercooked.Not as good as it once was and I am sorry we will seek another place next year in Dallas. Sorry Three Forks but you just lost 4 customers and we will be sure to share our visit with others that we know that travel there regularly.Thanks for the memories

    Our service was slow, my steak was suppose to be medium well came out rare sent back came back still rare. told them I'd just take it home, my husband was still eating his meal so I was going to eat my side dishes the waitress came picked up my plate and put it all in the to go container. I had to just sit there while my husband finished his steak (that was also cooked wrong -his medium came out medium well). They brought out a piece of chocolate cake with candle on it (it was our anniversary) but the cake had coconut on it which I hate. (never had a option to choose what we wanted). The manager brought out a special shot of their home made irish cream well guess what had coconut in it. I was very disappointing evening!

    Went for our anniversary and everyone in the place seemed to know that as they all congratulated us. We loved everything about the place other than we expected it to be much quieter. The volume did not take away from our experience though. The service was some of the best we've experienced in the greater DFW area. The timing of the appetizers, drinks, salads and dessert was spot on!

    Food was great. My husband had a 12 oz filet that was just melt in your mouth perfect. My father-in-law who "can't eat" enjoyed the greater portion of the giant Tenderloin salad. Service was fantastic. Noise level was a bit high, but on the upside it did drown out the screaming infants.

    Our group of 7 decided to dine here while we were in town. The decor is beautiful and the piano playing was nice. Our pre-dinner cocktails at the bar were excellent and bartenders were all very nice. Our server for dinner was very attentive. The food was good and it was an overall nice dining experience; however, I think there are much better places in Dallas to eat and would not recommend this restaurant and I wouldn't go back.

    The steak and beef croustade were phenomenal! We had NYA Strip and Fillet. Lobster mac and cheese was a treat. Every single item was fresh and hot when it finally arrived and tasted amazing. Small disappointment in no customized treatment for our anniversary. We were wished a happy anniversary several times, but nothing else. A simple flower or candle on the table, or beverage on the house would have been nice when spending 3 digits on a meal.

    Possibly one of the best meals we have ever had! My husband and I are not beef-eaters, but truly enjoyed their fish dishes. The Dover sole was so delicious and well-prepared - it melted like butter in my mouth. Fish dishes are served with potatoes or rice, sugar snap peas, creamed corn, sliced tomatoes, green onions and bread. It was absolutely delicious!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/20/2014
    I took my wife here for our 29th anniversary and had a wonderful time. The reason I gave the noise level a 3 was because of the band. Everything was very peaceful and quiet until the band began to play. Prior to the band beginning we could have a conversation without raising your voice however, once the band started to play the noise level increased drastically to the point that we raise our voices just to speak. There are other dining area that are away from the band that are probably quieter, I didn't think to request this or I would have. Anyway, overall it was a very nice experience.

    We had an AWESOME TIME at III Forks. From the time we pulled up Valet took customer service to a higher level for us. The ambiance is the best we have ever seen. But the person who had made our stay the greatest was our server, Antonio. He was dress professional, informative about the III Forks and menu, plus he was witty. He also gave a personal escort to my wife to the ladies room. Very nice touch! We also enjoyed the personal touch of Dawn coming by checking on us. I can not wait to tell my friends to get the experience of III Forks. As a Notre Dame graduate, I am used to 1st class ambiance and III Forks was no different.

    service...Waitress poorly trained for restaurant ostensibly of this caliber, too familiar ('well, looks like you liked that!', while bussing empty plates) tried to bully us on the wine list, didn't know prices of specials, constantly interrupting our dinner conversation Menu...some things warrant explanation on menu rather than expecting wait staff to talk about it, too much talk for things easily noted on the menu. Food...my 8 oz fillet was clearly about half the size of my wife's 8 oz filet...my filet looked to be about 4-5 oz. Creamed corn ho-hum, three forks salad small and tasted good but hype around it diminished enjoyment. Kings butter? A good cut of meat is its own reward! Portions were generally small for a $165 dinner for two!

    I haven't been to three forks in several years. Why?! The steak here was the best steak I have had at all the various steak places in Dallas and even other cities. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. The prime designation of the meat quality was accurate, and that is not always the case.
