Dining experience was excellent. I ordered the 22oz ribeye and my wife the 8oz filet mignon. They were deliciously seasoned and cooked to perfection. The sides were shareable sizes and great tasting as well.

Would highly recommend this place for a date night or celebratory dining experience. Thank you Don, our server, for the great service and wine suggestions.

Food was good. Service was great. My only issue was the menu isn't as robust as others especially for the price of things.

I was very disappointed in my dining experience. There was rows and rows of homeless tents in front of the restaurant. I didn’t feel safe. But we went ahead and kept our reservation since we’ve eaten there many times before. We ordered the wagyu ribeye for $195 so we thought that would be great. But most of it was fat. They used to also give us tomatoes and choices of steak knives, they did neither. Service was also slow. It was not a fine dining experience. I will not come back.

Everything about our dining experience was spectacular, from the dim lighting ambience, to the 5 star wait staff. The food speaks for itself, but when you go to III Forks, you’re paying for an experience, which you have to see for yourself!

We had been to III Forks in Dallas and were looking forward to a special anniversary in Austin. To say we were disappointed is an understatement. Everything was ok but not spectacular like Dallas. No sides are served with your entree like we had in Dallas and steak was good but not magnificent. We will head to Trulucks, Ruth Criss or Cheeves Bros. in Temple next time we want a special night out. Our view of the river was clouded by homeless tents, as well!!!

We celebrated a birthday at III Forks in Austin and it was the best meal we've ever had in our lifetime! The Bone-In Wagyu Ribeye 24 Oz was the best cut of meat I've ever purchased. We will definitely be coming back sooner than later!

The food was delicious, the ambiance was wonderful and the staff was amazing. We took our 96 year old Mother and she continues to say how perfect brunch was.
Thanks so much to Curtis, Earnest and the wonderful lady who took care of us. She went above and beyond to insure our experience was pleasant!

Another fantastic meal at our favorite steakhouse in Austin. Management and staff provided a wonderful Mother's Day brunch experience. Steaks are always great, the special eggs benedict dishes were a real treat, both the lobster and filet style. My shrimp and grits were absolutely perfect along with the signature creamed corn. Bread pudding is the best in the state of Texas. Excellent bloody mary's and limoncello. Side dishes are huge so be prepared to eat hardy. Excellent location with valet parking. Don't miss this place for a great meal.

Yet another FANTASTIC dining experience at III Forks. We’ve been several times and it’s always a hit. David provided excellent service. My wife asked for a wine that they didn’t carry so David brought out 2 samples that were similar to her request. One of them was spot on. The noise level was just right as well. We could have a conversation without having to raise our voices. Thanks for a great Mother’s Day Eve dinner III Forks and David. We shall return…

Took my girlfriend to III Forks for her birthday on 8 May. She had an 8oz filet and loved it. I was very excited about the Fish of the Day -seabass. I was advised it was delivered that day and thus extremely fresh. Unfortunately-although it was flakey and nicely cooked, it had a fishiness in odor that hit my nostrils and my taste was also affected. The restaurant was rather busy (all tables seemed to be full) and decided to eat the meal rather than order another dish, as other plans necessitated leaving at a certain time. The risotto that accompanied the fish was tasty but didn’t mask the odor/taste as described. Note: Seafood here is usually amazing and steaks have always been good. Like any experience, anything can happen once- I’m sure this was a fluke.

The restaurant is great! Service was great! My only complaint...they allowed a customer to dine here n the restaurant with only a suit coat and no shirt. Very disappointing when I’m paying for a nice meal and I’ve got to look at a young punk walking all around the restaurant with no shirt. Would have though management wouldn’t allow that to happen

My GF and I shared a big Tomahawk steak and it was the most delicious piece of meat I've ever eaten. The popcorn lobster appetizer was also great. And to top it all off, a great whiskey selection. Service was stellar. Thanks to the whole staff.

The ambience was a little stuffy for our liking. We were offered a table in a crowded spot and feeling uncomfortable with all the people moving around, we were moved to a distant corner.
As for the food - the sirloin steak was good, the cauliflower steak needed flavor, the asparagus and bread pudding were ok. Overall, not a repeat for us.
