As always, had a wonderful sitting a the bar and enjoying the atmosphere that goes with it. The Bartenders a VERY friendly and remember you. The food is VERY good although the veggie sides are rather small portion for the price. It's great people watching fodder. More of an adult atmosphere and great choices of drinking options. The WHOLE staff from the top down are AMAZINGLY friendly and nice. You get cheered up just being around them for a short while.

We've been to Fork many times as we have kids at BSU. The last couple of visits have been disappointing. While the service was great, the food was just so-so. Fork has gone from being our favorite restaurant in Boise to one that we probably won't bother going back to.

The Steak was prepared beautifully. The tri tip salad was not good, the meat was over cooked and full of fat. The salad was wilted and vegetable not fresh. The waitress had standard service, not very friendly.

We had heard great things about Fork but the food we were served did not live up to the hype. Food was over or under cooked. It would have been nice to have something green on the plate. I get that it is Idaho but way to heavy on the mashed potatoes.

Although it’s received great reviews, I found it to be just okay. Asparagus was way over cooked, my husband’s chicken was undercooked. The only entree I enjoyed was the salted caramel bread pudding. Just not a great value, could be quite loud if the restaurant were busy.

We had a nice time at Fork restaurant, the food was really good, the appetizers were great and the filet was perfect, excellent meat and cooked to perfection. the minor things that made me rate it 4 star was that there was no potato dish served with the filet, fries or smashed potatoes were $5 extra which I think was weird, should have been included. Without it you just get a great filet (8 oz.) and some green beans, not enough to fill you up. And I am not a fan of the Parmesan seasoned fries, the first couple are okay but after that the taste of the cheese is too overwhelming. I also found it a bit overpriced, $200 (excluding tip) for two appetizers, 4 filets and 3 glasses of red wine is a bit high in my opinion.

Fun was had by all, attentive service no long waits or lulls and the food presentation spot on without being pretentious.
Go, visit, imbibe, dine, you will not be disappointed. They even put beets on the house salad for my daughter and my husband and I shared a plate, not all restaurants do that so that was nice.

3 generations of our family enjoyed a lovely birthday meal for my husband. Asparagus appetizer was delicious, and provided each of the 4 adults with 3-4 spears each. Bar drinks and wine were excellent. 2 ordered the beef short ribs, which they both enjoyed -- only negative was that the mashed potatoes were somewhat dry. The vegetarian loved her artichoke ravioli. Granddaughter wasn't wild about her kids' spaghetti and meatballs, instead concentrated on fruit salad. My petit filet was cooked to a perfect medium rare and bourbon-porcini-peppercorn sauce was excellent. Our server (Bekka?) was excellent.

This is the second time we have been to Fork. Food was amazing both times! The only complaint I have is that their menu is very small, unless you go after 4. The few things they do have before 4 are very good. We plan on visiting again after 4 to get the full experience and try new menu items! Service was ok both times...not extremely impressed.
