It was very hot in there. They over cooked both of our steaks the first time and then undercooked them the second time. The second time they came cold. I asked the waitress if the mashed potatoes were real and she said yes. They were boxed and cost $4. Don’t go here.

The Valentine's Day service was outstanding. Unfortunately, I was running 30 minutes late for my reservation. I called and they quickly accommodated me for late arrival. Our drink order began with the Cherry-bing Mojito and I got the Mirror Pond ale. Both were excellent. The waitress then offered for round 2 and nailed it on the next ale recommendation as I am a huge fan of hoppy beers. My gf ordered the stuffed rainbow trout and it was absolutely superb. The skin was left on and actually created a very flavorful burst. The bones were removed and the meat was incredibly buttery. It was so easy to eat and they didn't short on the helping. I ordered the center-cut filet medium rare and it came just as requested. A very pink center fading into a light pink outer rim. The steak was about 2 inches thick and very commanding of the plate. Cutting into the filet took zero effort as a butter knife would just about suffice. A good steak requires no sauce and no sauce indeed! Such a juicy and easy-to-chew cut upon a very creamy, cheesy mashed potato surrounded by fresh green beans stir fried to perfection with a scrumptious flavor and satisfying crunch. The mushrooms on top tasted of the perfected art of sauté and acted as the best 'cherry on top.' We finished our meal with ordering the GF Brownie in a Bowl dessert. It came with a healthy sized brownie rectangularly sliced; it tasted and smelled fresh from oven. It came topped with frozen chocolate ice cream and a whipped cream infused with honey-glazed walnuts that made the taste buds fly! Our service was outstanding and the rush felt non-existent. Our waitress was very polite and we had staff checking in on us very often, yet they were subtle about it. I highly recommend this restaurant for brunch, lunch or dinner, especially on Valentine's Day. I suggest reserving 2 weeks in advance for V-day. Fork has always lived up to the expectations it sets. Thank you.

The only reason we gave this less than 5 stars is that we had to be seated in the back room which lacks the warm, vibrant atmosphere that the main dining area has, and we had out of town guests who we would have loved to get the full effect. We love this restaurant though.

Out of town guests came for Halibut Sandwich & the short rib sliders, neither of which were on the menu. Three of us had the Urban burger which was delicious. Asparagus and Onion Rings were perfect as usual. The diced potatoes served with the sea bass however were terrible. Everyone at the table tried a couple but no one liked them at all. You can do better than that. We did not complain. Our waiter had great personality and made our experience great. We will return.

My son & I went for Sunday brunch yesterday. It was our first time to Fork and we loved everything about it. It was not crowded or noisy. We had excellent service. I had the french toast and it was absolutely the best french toast I have ever had. It melted in my mouth. My son had waffle chicken sliders and wouldn't share a bite because he liked them so much. The bill was less than $20 for a lovely experience all around.

The food here was fantastic! We love that they use local ingredients and support local breweries, wineries, etc. They even have local spirits. The waitress was friendly and helpful and even recommended other local places to check out. The atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable. Definitely recommend this for brunch.

Food was delicious! Service was okay but don't think it was server's fault, she seemed to be overwhelmed because she was working entire section from front to back on side of restaurant we were seated. I had to get up to ask a question about the menu and waited quite a long time between refills. Again, she was nice, just seemed overwhelmed or distracted by too big of an area.

The atmosphere at Fork is stylish & historic... such a beautiful building! The service is top notch and the food is excellent! Great choices for any type of diner or a fun place for appetizers & drinks. The only concern for us was the noise level ... the restaurant was FULL which really brought up the noise. We had a little difficulty having a conversation with our friends.

We dined at the Fork for my sister's birthday. Both my sister and one of our guests ordered the Urban Burger. My sister requested a medium well burger with very few things on it (picky eater that she is). Our other guest ordered his medium rare with avocado and other things on it. Unfortunately the chef placed the avocado on my sister's medium well and our other guest received it. Each had the other's burger. The medium rare was too undercooked for my sister. When she told our waiter, he returned the burger to the kitchen to be cooked more and then gave our friend with his not cooked to order burger a freebie. You could not ask for a better resolution of this mistake. The Fork also gave my sister her dessert free since it was her birthday. All of this was fantastic service.

The food was also amazing! We will continue dining at the Fork.

Have eaten a few times at Fork since moving to Boise. Was disappointed this time. 2 of the 3 entrees (Chicken and Waffles along with Fish Sandwich) were well below what was expected. The Burger and Asparagus appetizer were good. The French Fries were soggy and way to heavily seasoned, It's Idaho, you have to get the fries right! Will probably give it another chance, but probably won't recommend to others at this time.

The Fork is one of our go-to favorites. This visit was for a brunch birthday celebration and unfortunately not our best experience. The waiter was aware it was a birthday, but did not even mention it until he brought the check. Also, we had to specifically ask the waiter to bring a dessert for the birthday girl (once we closed the tab) only to be presented with another check for the dessert. We've never encountered this before and with the heads up to staff we were celebrating, we expected dessert to be on the house, especially considering the final price of our meals. Our food came out very slow, and not all at once. The restaurant was steady but not slammed by any means. It was even more ridiculous that the birthday girl was the last to be served. Biscuits were hard and over easy eggs were actually well done. The scramble, which said included ham, had only two small pieces. Disappointed to say the least.
