    High end Steakhouse concepts are widespread especially in Texas but 3 forks shines. It has a big dining area, service is prompt and helpful with specific attention to your needs. For example, we had game tickets so they sped up food prep and service but didn't rush us thru the first course. Wine and liquor menus are deep. Ambiance is fun. Prices are in line with quality but I was surprised that they included sides with the steaks. Mashed potatoes, cream corn, and green veg came with the meal. Nice touch. It's worth a try. 5 star texas service and steak

    This is not the 3 Forks I remember. In a word, this review could be summarized to say: Neglected! It detracted from our special occasion with the dark room, uncomfortable (awkward) seating, bad table corner, the loud clank and clamor of utensils, people loudly communicating over the very loud music which was in another room - Awful! The decor needs to be updated and even the bar showed wear and tear, the finish worn to bare wood. Neglected. The dark, depressing room lacked charm. If there was a single flower in the room I didn't see it. The dining room offered nothing remotely special and it was extra loud. Lots of clatter and loud voices. One end of the shoved together tables was llopsided with lumpy layers under the tablecloth. Ridiculous! The appetizers were not outstanding, nothing special. Has it changed management and ownership? I guarantee food and service certainly isn't the quality it once was! The 'sides' were a disappointment and my own NY Cut steak was tough, not easily cut. Of my 12 guests, one did tell me he especially enjoyed his steak. Waiter was flirtatious with one in the party of 12 and ignored me until time to present the check. As I reflect on the experience today, I am reminded of what I overheard as we waited to leave when one in the group said: "I wish we had done this at my house!". Others agreed and I was embarrassed. They were right though. I wonder if the night could have been simply golden someplace else because the people are all so special and it was an occasion for celebration. But - Not in a dark, depressing room **impossible** to stand up on the half of table to the wall - everyone had to scoot out for anyone else to stand up on the back row! Waiters reached over with food. No room to serve correctly! Enough. Really, it was dreadful. Except for the valet. He greeted me warmly upon my arrival and took the sting out with his kindness as he helped me in my car when I left.

    III Forks is one of our favorite special restaurants! We've been going there for nearly 15 years to celebrate our son's birthday! The filet mignons are the best! We love the wonderful creamed corn and sugar snap peas, along with the mashed potatoes! The food is always excellent. Great wine list too. The desserts are just too good! Very attentive staff!

    First and foremost THANK YOU III Forks for honoring and appreciate the veterans on veteran days. Very Classy for buying them a dinner. We come to II Forks at least 6 times a year. As always great ambience, great food and great service and unforgettable good times. Unfortunately, the last was not too good. We felt we are being rush off, taking away my plate while I am still eating. :(

    III Forks never dissappoints. The service is outstanding, but the food is what is the star here. The steaks are the best in the country, and the sides that come with the meal are to die for, the corn and beans are always cooked to perfection and loaded with flavor. Anytime i am in the Dallas area, i go to III forks, and sometimes thats a $90 cab ride one way, but so worth it.

    We had a lovely time celebrating our son's 25th Birthday. The food was outstanding. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Side dishes were quite tasty. The different flavors were extremely enjoyable. We loved the atmosphere. We were seated in the dining room that made you feel as if you were outdoors. The fountains were very relaxing and enjoyable. The noise level was a minimum so we were able to hear each other speak without having to raise our voices. Will, our server was awesome and catered to our every need. Our son thoroughly enjoyed his meal! We will return for another special occasion.

    III Forks is a sure thing on the food side of things and usually the service. However, my server this past Friday night was not someone who should be in the service industry, at least not in front of customers. The server barely even talked to us and in fact, we could not hear him speak at all. He stopped by the table less than 4 times and in my book for a 5-star dining experience that is not nearly enough. We expect someone who is professional while being fun and trying to sell us on food items and wine items!

    Sadly, I'd heard many tell me this place was over-rated, so I never came. Everyone was wrong. The food and service were unbelievable. I had one of the best steaks of my life at lll Forks on this occasion. I've been to most of the top steakhouses in Dallas, lll Forks is definitely now in my top 3.

    This is the best steakhouse in the Dallas metroplex. Fantastic steaks and sides. No top-end steakhouse does a better job of combining great food with included sides at a worth every penny price point. III Forks sets themselves apart from others with the corn, snap peas, mashed potatoes and optional gravy. Combine all that with the great steaks and you have the perfect meal. Service is also excellent. Very friendly staff. Restaurant can be slightly noisy and tables may be a little too close, but not a big deal.

    This was our 4th time at iii forks, second time for an anniversary, and it was great. I had flowers delivered to the restaurant, and I personally delivered the anniversary present for my fiance to the restaurant a week early and requested a specific table. Everything I requested was executed perfectly, and we even got a complimentary desert for our anniversary... So we pigged out and got a second one.

    This was not the first time for me to enjoy a wonderful meal at III Forks. It was my husband's birthday & he hasn't ever been, so I decided it would be a great place for me to take him. We were seated immediately, our server was outstanding, we never waited or wanted for anything. I had the Lobster & my husband had the Prime Rib, both were amazing. His steak was cooked perfectly, my lobster was spot on, tender. The corn is to die for! They brought him a slice of cake that was huge, more than enough for two people. We left extremely full & more than happy. We will be back for sure!

    I have been to III Forks in Dallas and other cities for years. Always dependable for food and great service with a great wine list too. I still love it. However, I gave this visit 4 stars instead of 5 due to the cut of meat I was served. I ordered the bone-in ribeye. Instead of the usual thick cut with the bone as an integral part of the cut of meat adding flavor, I was presented with a thinner cut with a bone that looked like it was just added to the meat as decoration. I should have ordered the boneless ribeye instead; next time... I was pleased that it was prepared the way I requested and the waiter was accurate in his description of III Fork's definition of "medium rare".

    The last several times we have been to III Forks, we have left very disappointed. This time was no different. First our waitress took a very long time to take our drink orders. Our bottle of wine was brought after our first course was served. Two of the filets were overcooked and did not even look like filets. 20 min later new plates were brought but everyone else at the table had finished eating. We have continued to return to this restaurant because the food has been so good, however, this was our last time. Inconsistent service and now food are the final straws.

    This is the best Steakhouse I've ever had the opportunity to dine in. From the moment you walk in the door, III Forks is amazing and when dinner is served it only gets better! Outstanding cocktails (loved the candied slice of bacon in my manhattan), wine selection, and excellent cuisine. The live music was appropriate and did not distract from the experience at all. On the contrary, it enhanced it...we will be back!

    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.
