Fork is one of our favorite downtown restaurants. The service, atmosphere, food quality and eclectic wine and cocktail selections always make us glad we chose Fork. We appreciate Fork's efforts to support local wineries and food sources.

Usually everything is perfect at Fork, though it can be really noisy on a weekend night. This time, my vegetables were extremely salty -- to the point of not being able to eat them. Not sure why that happened, but will definitely return as this was atypical of their food. By the time the waitress checked on us, it was too late to do anything about it (we were headed to a concert).

Great atmosphere, service aNd food. However I was disappointed that both chicken dishes that my guest and I ordered were undercooked. We let our server know but I don’t believe this was relayed to the kitchen staff. Other than this, the experience was great!

Great food. We had the queso, burger and fries. All was fantastic. Our waiter (probably the tallest guy in Boise) was awesome. He always had a full glass of iced tea ready when mine was empty, he brought extra chips and his recommendations were right on.

The restaurant is in an old bank so the ambience is pretty nice.

Usually really good, but it seemed our food had been siting for a while. Cheeseburger was lukewarm and so were the french fries. This is not usually the case. Service was slow for four cheeseburgers. I think if the services was more efficient it would have been a much better experience overall. Like I said, Fork is usually a great restaurant with good service, and a place I always stop when I’m in Boise.

Very disappointed. Hostess was obviously inexperienced with a bad attitude. My husband has physical limitations and could not sit at a small table. She refused to reseat us at a larger table, even though it was early on a Sunday, plenty of tables.. The manager did step in and reseat us. Then, the drink order was incorrect. The steak was okay, just expected more for the hype.... We ate quickly and left.

My friend and I tried Fork when they offered a free entree for Veterans on November 11th. The entire experience was wonderful! The server treated us with respect and kindness. The food was wonderful! And I especially liked the use of the word “grateful” for identifying our discount. Classy!

Drove all the way from Nampa for lunch here, and would gladly do so again. The food was perfectly cooked, seasoned, and presented. We sat in the far back corner, so service was somewhat less than what I observed at other diners’ tables. Despite the slight delays, I heartily enjoyed my meal and the personable wait staff.

Fork is one of my favorites. I know I can bring guests here for great food and service. Servings are generous, the menu offers great options, and any meal that ends with butter cake is a smashing success.

Our recent meal was no exception. The short ribs were rich and delicious, and the Voodoo Chicken was seasoned and cooked to perfection. Our waiter was excellent, attentive without being obtrusive.

We will definitely return.
