Lively atmosphere but the food was somewhat of a disappointment not coming out hot and a bit pricey as brunch for two was $50 without alcohol.

Fork never disappoints! Every time I've eaten a meal there - whether with friends or for business dinners - the food impresses, the service is top notch, and the atmosphere is one of the best. The chicken and waffles on Tuesdays is worth trying.

I've only been to Fork a few times, but I always seem to get the Grown Up Grilled Ham and Cheese sandwich because it's amazing. Pair it with some tomato basil soup and you're in heaven!

For the second year in a row I had my birthday dinner at Fork. Last year we were new to the Boise area and tried Fork on a recommendation, but this year the choice was mine. The warm butter cake was delicious. Great food and friendly service.

Excellent food, great service, and fun atmosphere. The glazed brussels sprouts and asparagus fries were amazing! Four stars only because the prime rib was undercooked and served bloody. Other than that, we had a great experience.

Service was incredibly slow for a half full restaurant. I had a "Grown up grilled cheese". Would have been great if it hadn't been burned on one side. We were headed to the game so I didn't want to send it back since we had already been there for an hour. Have
been there for lunch on a weekday and had no issues.

Great service, yummy food and cocktails. However, one of the things that I love about Fork is one of the things that I hate. That big, open space with the tall ceilings and original details, is also an incredibly hard place to carry on a conversation. The acoustics are sooo bad! I’d go there more often but that’s the problem with this place.

 (Palm Springs)·Dined on October 29, 2017

Great food and waitress was great but disappointed in the hostess that seated us! Made an early reservation before it was crowded, we even got there 15 min early and she would not sit us at any of the empty booths that we were requesting. Her excuses did not make sense and lacked good customer service/satisfaction.
Apparently your "booth" requests needs to be in special comments in your online reservation! I told her, "well we are 15 min early, I'll go in and change my reservation to state that." She still wouldn't budge!!

Went to the Fork to celebrate a birthday. Waitress was very helpful. Nice casual dinner. Half the table shared wine and the other half ordered drinks. We ordered the Filet and the Trout, Fried Asparagus, and shared a salad. We were going to order the prime rib but looking at the cuts on other tables, way too much fat.
