We have eaten at Fork many times. One of the best restaurants in Boise. It seems to get better with new offerings and improved recipes. We celebrated our mother's 83 birthday there and had a splendid time. The service was excellent and waitor was very helpful. We shall continue to return.

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.

Ended up here as it was close to the AirB&B we were staying at. Nice surprise to find Teton Whiskey (better than WY whiskey!). Split the Brussels sprouts and half roasted whicken. Fast service. Very friendly wait staff. Will come back to try more of the menu next time we’re coming through Boise

This was my second time at Fork and, aside from the curious fly who kept buzzing by, it was utterly divine! I ordered the 8th Street Tacos, the Local Ale-Braised Short Ribs, and Razzmataz to drink, and I highly recommend all three. Delicious food, outstanding drinks, lovely service.

Whenever I go to Fork, it is simply too noisy for a normal conversation. maybe a bit of sound absorbing materials would help. Also my wife's chicken dinner had no green on it-not even a parsley sprig or garnish. Come on folks a plate with more color is nice.

This is our 4th time eating here. Seems to be one of our regulars when we are visiting Boise. As usual the food was terrific. The service and timing of the meal was a bit less than stellar which is unusual. We will definitely go back and hopefully they will be back to their normal excellent service. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I was really looking forward to dining at a uniquely Boise restaurant and was gravely disappointed. There were flies all over the restaurant and the dish I ordered felt like I was eating one of the rotisserie chicken straight from Costco.

The portions appear to have shrunk a bit, the prices are average, the service was good, and the food was good-above average. Our order included the trout which was good, their burger which was good, their BCS salad which was OK, and something else that I can't remember. The prices are OK, the flavor was really good on some and just average on others, and the service was good. Nice place.

No fault of the restaurant, but it's VERY noisy when full of people on a weekend night. We had a hard time hearing our friends. The atmosphere is great. Also, great service and wonderful drinks/food, but if you wish to converse with your table mates, probably go elsewhere.

We love the food at Fork, but it always so noisy in there you can barely hear yourself think. If you want to have a confidential conversation, Fork is ideal because the noise level is so high you can't hear anything being said at adjoining tables.
