Not as good as it’s been in the past. Fish wasn’t all that fresh tasting Maybe summer menu is better. Still a fun night out.

We enjoyed our meal and their selection.. Wished they carried Glacier 45 Vodka and their food was better. I had a center cut filet and it was just OK, not the best, not the worst. I expected more, and that was disappointing. However, I have to say the ambiance was excellent and the conversation with friends was great! If they could have mastered the food - our night would have been perfect. Overall, great place with a professional clientele - great service with a good bar - great wait staff, attentive to our needs with a mediocre meal.

Dinner was good. Waiter was excellent. Parking downtown is a real pain and the parking suggestion on your website was inadequate. It cost is a $60 parking ticket. You restaurant was good but not worth the hassle of getting to it.

Fork was recommended to us by a friend, and I’m so glad she did! We went here with my dad, who was visiting from out of town. I was very please that when we asked for a quiet table, they were able and willing to provide just the thing for us in a side room (the main room was bustling and noisy, a fun ambiance for a different time). The menu has great variety; we could all find something that we liked, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I hope I get to go back!

My husband and I were looking for a fun night out in downtown Boise and this was a great fit for dinner. We had (and loved) the asparagus fries, the brussel sprouts and the crunchy chicken salad - totaling under $35. The servings were VERY generous for this type of restaurant, especially at this price point. We can't wait to try the butter cake at our next visit!

It's a bit noisy, so sit close together. Wonderful food, great bar choices, good service. You'll have to pay for parking in one of the downtown garages, but only $6.00 max for the evening. Butter Cake!!!!! One is plenty for two, but oh soooooo yummy.

Music was so loud we couldn't hear the server. Had to yell to have a conversation with my wife. Food was so so, tiny steak didn't taste up to par with its price tag. Not the same outstanding experience we had a few years ago. Loved the asparagus fries!

Birthday party celebrated at The Fork was a great success. Food delivered quickly and everything was top notch. This is a hot spot and can be noisy but it adds to the ambiance and gives The Fork a "big city" feel. Good variety of specialty drinks and a nice variety of wines by the glass and the bottle. Worth a visit but reservations are suggested.

So much food at an affordable price that I couldn’t eat it all and couldn’t take it with me. We heard several great reviews after we found out we had reservations there .
