    The dinner was perfect, everyone enjoyed their food. Service at the table was good. The bummer was that our business group of 7 people arrived early to enjoy drinks at the bar but were told we could not have drinks at the bar since we had a dinner reservation, and we couldn’t go to our table because we were an hour early. So we went next door and gave another restaurant nearly $200 in drink revenue and then returned for dinner. The bar at Fork was entirely empty when we first arrived and mostly empty when we sat for dinner. It was an odd experience and we considered staying at the other restaurant for dinner as well. You should re-think this policy.

    Our dinner at Fork-Boise was outstanding. The waiter was very good and recommended the tomato bisque as an appetizer (along with the chips and onion dip we planned to have anyway). Both were outstanding! As was the meal and the wine my wife had. The ambiance was also excellent. Fork will remain on our very short list of great places to eat in Boise!

    I am so glad I decided to take the time to dine at this lovely restaurant. Our server was so accommodating and friendly - plus she gave me a very good recommendation for a great red wine. The food was outstanding, and I always appreciate a chef/restaurant that prioritizes locally grown, sustainable ingredients. I look forward to going back again next time I find myself in Boise, and hope to try their other restaurant - Alavita.

    Been here a few times and it’s over hyped. But I always try to give it another shot since I do love their butter cake. This time I had a very dry burger. Took maybe 3 bites of it and the server never came by to ask how the food was. When I pushed it away from me, she just took it without saying anything. The food really isn’t anything special. Truly, the only thing that’s good here is the butter cake which is always consistent

    Fork is always great. Been coming to Fork for almost 10 years with my wife. We had our first date on her birthday when we were just meeting and now we have been married for 7 years. Common denominator is…eat at Fork, meet a gal, and get married.

    I feel the quality of the food is not as good as it used to be. Did they have a change in chefs in the last couple of years? I’ve had three of the main dinner items (ravioli, short ribs, salmon) and did not enjoy them. My husband commented that even the burger he has last night was not as good as before (ie somewhat greasy). This was my favorite restaurant. I hope they can again become that great restaurant that was great at everything including the food.

    Good experience overall. Liv was our server and was attentive without being overbearing. We arrived for lunch on the early side so the noise level was such that conversation was easy. It became more challenging as the crowd grew and a toddler was one contributor as well as the overall numbers.

    The food and service were outstanding. However the dining experience was not pleasant. The seating reminded me of a cafeteria. We felt rushed through the entire meal and couldn't relax and enjoy the evening. I would go here for a quick lunch, but not for a nice evening out.

    Food was good, as always. The menus were so faded that some words were ineligible. The waiter described a dessert to us because he saw that it was completely worn off. He explained that the menus were changing soon. It seems ridiculous not to provide menus that can be read.
