Good food and fun! I had the strip steak and it was cooked perfectly and my husband had the Friday night prime rib which was to die for, the flavor was excellent. Our cocktails were perfect and of course we had to have the BUTTER CAKE for dessert. It's perfect for sharing and very yummy! Thank you for the nice overall dining experience.

We had a Sunday brunch and told our food server that we had to leave quickly to catch a flight. She was perfect in attending to our needs, especially leaving our check before we finished our meal so we have a pleasant but quick meal.

Great! Our waiter was very attentive and helpful since I was limited in food selection due to food sensitivities. The waiter and chef made sure that I could enjoy something off the menu. Yes, we will return. It is one of our favorite places to eat.

I've heard about Fork from a ton of people, so I was excited to go and the menu looked great . . . I just didn't feel like the food quality lived up to the hype. I ordered the Chicken and Waffles, which is only served on Tuesday nights, and I loved the seasoning on the chicken - great flavor! It was cooked well, but I anticipated more of the savory aspect coming through in the waffles as well with the cheese that I thought was supposed to incorporated in the batter. For me, the waffles are a big part of the chicken and waffles experience and these were a big let down. The citrus butter was a nice flavor, but I just wasn't as wowed as I thought I would be for the price of the dish and all the rave reviews I'd been hearing . . .

This was a great night out with my husband. We tried the asparagus fries to start, and those were great! We had the Moroccan chicken and short ribs, which were both excellent with great flavor, tender and juicy. Take your own bottle of wine and the corking fee goes to charity!!

Always good downtown restaurant. Crowded and a bit noisy at lunchtime. But still a good place to dine. Salad was delicious and large. I couldn’t finish it but it was good. I will dine here again.

Always nice to travel to a unique city like Boise where boutique is abundant and chains are few. Then to have a place like Fork standout for everyday eating, business agenda meals or special occasions, coupled with the service staff that are truly interested in you enjoying the restaurant, food and drink, makes the entire experience a go to for me.

Make sure you get the reservation in as too many times I don't and expect to walk in and grab a table, more times than not this does not happen.

Treat yourself to the bar prior to and or after the meal. Fork offers it all!

Visit Boise and visit Fork.

Great for our Easter dinner, food was excellent, servers and hostess were professional and friendly. It did take an hour for us to get our food, we were glad we had an appetizer to get us through the long wait. I have eaten here several times and the service was much faster. We will eat here again and recommend it to friends

OMG the Asparagus Fries were amazing. Everyone enjoyed their meals except for the ones that ordered the Cast Iron Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Cheddar Waffle. The Waffle was good but the Chicken was way overdone. It appeared that others in the restaurant that ordered the chicken left most of it on the plate. The other meals were great - Trout, Steak and Salad. Service was excellent. Very busy place - make a reservation.

Always delicious food and cocktails as a plus. Minuses are the cost - $100 with tip for two people - and the noise level. Our waiter was not the best we’ve had here but was adequate.

Had a really nice lunch for my mom’s 79th bday at Fork last week. She’s uses a wheelchair and staff was very helpful explaining how we could best enter the restaurant and then seating us at a close and comfortable table for her. We had friendly and efficient service. Everyone loved their lunches and that butter cake is the bomb!

Okay experience. Wasn't OVERWHELMED.
Our server was Nice, but slow getting back to us.
The onion rings were NOT good at all, and they were omitted from the bill. Thankfully.
The restaurant was very loud...
Probably wouldn't go back.
