    My favorite restaurant in Jax and , by far, the best steaks. The wine list is extensive and the Sommelier is knowledgeable and helpful. Never had a bad meal here.

    This was our first visit to III Forks, as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. We had heard good things about it, and my husband suggested we try it out. We were taken back by the anniversary congratulations at the front entrance, the candlelight and the special dessert gift. Our waiter, Keith was awesome and gave grade A service. We will definitely be back!!!

    We are addicted to this incredible restaurant that wears many faces! Lovely simplicity,elegant dining or it can become the event of a lifetime. There are only wonderful items to choose from on the menu, where everything is a specialty. Please save room for dessert or order the soufflé in advance. A must try. The wine list is for sophisticates or you can be secure in a recommendation. The staff is impeccable and cannot do enough. From the bread basket to asking for special cuisine preparation, all is done with genuine pleasure and beyond the call of duty. The minute we leave this gem we cannot wait to return. You needn't go far to be indulged.

    In Jacksonville for a convention and had a tremendous dining experience here. The gigantic tomahawk steak fed three (3!) of us at the table and was perfectly seasoned and tender. The onion rings were the best I've ever had and the bread pudding dessert is the stuff of sweet dreams - folks in Jacksonville have a winner here!

    Arrived at reservation time and was warmly greeted and seated promptly. We were celebrating at twelve (12) year anniversary which brought a little extra attention. It was greatly appreciated. We ordered fish and steak. Both of our meals were wonderfully prepared. The fish was cooked perfectly, and the steak was soooo tender. We enjoyed them immensely. Dessert followed. They also exceeded our expectations. Our server was very attentive and saw to it that the evening was very pleasant. III Folks is definitely a place everyone should dine at.

    Although it is a bit pricey for Jacksonville, the food was excellent and the service impeccable. A group of four for a special occasion were not disappointed. The bartender was friendly and accommodating; the drinks were terrific and priced reasonable. Our server, Nicole, was fantastic - pleasant and knowledgeable. We shared the onion rings and scallops for appetizers. Two of us had the french onion soup-very good; the wedge salad and Caesar salad were also very good and perfect size. No doubt the steaks are some of the best in town -a Filet Mignon and Bone-in Ribeye were thoroughly enjoyed by three of us. One got a hamburger that had chopped onions in it that the one diner didn't care for. Otherwise, a great experience all the way around.

    Four of us met at III Forks in Jacksonville to celebrate a return to the mainland and the chance to break bread after their 7 year absence. The ambiance and food was great and our server, Kelly, was extraordinary. We had a leisurely dinner and were able to also enjoy large portions of conversation amid our appetizer, entrees and dessert.

    Dined on 9/17/2014
    We were treated like romantic royalty for the whole night since they knew it was our anniversary. The seared scallops were RIDICULOUSLY good! The steaks were good but if you are solely searching for a steak at this price range I would suggest Ruth Chris. I got the 8 oz. Filet Mignon with the blue cheese crown and shallot wine sauce and it was good, not great. My husband had the bone in ribeye Oscar style and loved it. We shared two sides, the sauteed spinach and the roasted fingerling potatoes. The spinach was easily the best I've had abd the potatoes were easily the worst. We ended our lovely dinner on the patio with coffee, cake, and my husband had a cigar. We will definitely return but I may branch out from a steak for the sea bass.

    Had a great dinner for my father's 75th birthday. Food was excellent and our service was also. Noise level was rated as moderate only because the room and table in which we were seated was backed up to the bar which was very busy. There were some shutters behind our table which could be shut and it cut down on the overflow noise from the bar, but at some points it remained somewhat difficult to have a conversation among our small party of 4. If we had been in one of the other rooms, however, it most likely would not have been a problem. That being said, it did not dampen our enjoyment of our birthday celebration and I would not consider the mild overflow noise from the bar something that would keep me from returning to this restaurant.

    As a world traveler and lover of fine dining I was disappointed. It's similar to Ruth Chris, Morton and Capital Grill ,but lacked the finer touches. I prefer a table cloth or place mat for upscale eating, as I do not like my place setting on a bare table top. The bread arrived wrapped in a dinner napkin, no basket, no plate, just a napkin? Huge wine cellar, small martini's however. It is a very attractive venue and has a friendly staff. The ladies room was very clean and well appointed.

    We wanted a special place to celebrate our anniversary and found each dish overpriced and not tasty. What a disappointment! The lamb chops tasted of an undefined gamey meat; the texture was tough as well. My scallops? I wondered if the chef knew how to clean them. I left four on the plate for fear of breaking my teeth. Awful grittiness! The sauce was tasty and they were cooked just right but some steps were skipped in the prep work.

    We continue to return for the same reasons:consistently impeccable service, wine and food. Recent transplants from the east, we are thrilled to find a sophisticated restaurant that offers an exciting yet comfortable menu and user friendly environment. The steaks are absolutely exquisite and the homemade challah is a meal in itself. The waitstaff is extraordinary in that they anticipate your every need. If that is not enough, Proprietor Pete Niblich will bend over backwards to accommodate. and if he's not enough, your personal Maitre d', Andrew Burkhart will endeavor to make your evening beyond spectacular.

    Definitely the best ribeye I have eaten in Jacksonville and one of the best ever. My only complaints were (1) we had to wait over 30 minutes between the appetizers/ salads and the main course, and (2) they delivered half of our sides 10 minutes after the steaks arrived. That being said, all the sides we ordered were exceptional, most especially the six cheese mashed potatoes. I am counting the days until I get to go back.

    Dined on 8/6/2014
    On a quiet weekday evening, we were seated on time in the bar area for dinner and was never to see a wait staff again! The restaurant was NOT busy so one would expect to be waited on hand and foot. On the contrary - had to get the peppermill from the bar area and grind fresh pepper on my salad. Never got a water refill. The onion soup was so salty couldn't find a wait staff person to send it back and order something else. On the positive side, once we sent the soup back for a salad, our main course (steaks) were held up so they didn't show up at the same time as the salad. Things improved as the night went along but far below the service one would expect from an expensive steak house restaurant.

    Fabulous meal for 2 couples, Jacksonville natives- all rarely dine at 3 Forks. It was 2 years since my last visit and I must admit, it was a stellar food experience. The menu is easy to read and has every entree you could ever desire. We had Beef Filet, Lobster, Double Cut Pork Chop and Sea Bass. Home run. The salads were fabulous. The only negative was the goosebumps throughout the meal. The temperature was frigid like dining in a walk-in refrigerator. I asked for a blanket, and manager was kind enough to have shawls available. If a restaurant finds the need to stock shawls, maybe there is an issue with setting the thermostat. We were in the most inside room off the bar. I would go back- next time wearing a PARKA!

    I picked this restaurant because I had heard so many great things about it. Food was wonderful. CRABCAKES WERE THE BEST I EVER HAD!!! I WOULD GO BACK JUST FOR THEM!!! However, the waiter decided that me and my guest were not as important as his other diners. It honestly took us over 30 mins to place our order because he just kept walking pass us. Once several occasions we had to literally stop him and request something. He barley even talked to us, but he was with the diners in the corner for well over 30 mins, I guarantee he knows their whole life story as well as they know his. I ordered a salad that never came, so they the manager gave us a dessert which was nice. If I was to come back I would not want that waiter!!!
