    The food and service at III Forks is wonderful. But the noise is just horrible. We could barely carry on a conversation. When I made our reservation, for 3, I asked for a quiet table. When we were seated, again I requested a quieter location. None was available, we stayed right in the middle of all the traffic. There seemed to be a lot of larger groups, perhaps coworkers, etc. Perhaps just a bad night. But really for us the noise really ruined a great meal.

    My boyfriend and I had an incredible experience! We went for his birthday and everyone was so thoughtful and attentive. Our steaks were amazing and they brought us a birthday dessert with 2 different cakes. They also took a picture of his and printed it and gave it to my boyfriend with a happy birthday card. We had an amazing time!

    3 Forks is simply the best steak you can get in Austin. My only complaint and it's minor is how loud it is. It's kinda loud. Other than that, perfect.

    The steak options were delicious and the king's butter was exceptional! Very tasty brussel sprouts, but our waiter forgot that we had ordered calamari as an appetizer. She made up for the gaffe with her energy and conversation.

    We celebrated my 50th birthday and as always, the service was impeccable. We’ve had the pleasure of having Thomas as our waiter once before and we were happily surprised to see him again. He’s attentive and pleasant while providing a great dining experience. The food never disappoints. And the surprise glass of champagne and cake on the house was a sweet touch.

    Service impeccable (thank you David). Food sparked a symphony across the taste buds. Cooked to perfection. Terrific wine selection, with a few sneaky tastings. Lighting was perfect (particularly for those who may suffer migraines as a result). Temperature and noise level, again, spot on. Bravo!

    Me and my fiancé had our 3 year anniversary dinner here and it was absolutely phenomenal. The service was incredibly attentive and everything we ordered was delicious. I don’t think there’s anything you could order that you wouldn’t like. Our server David was amazing and took great care of us! If your looking for an incredible dining experience III Forks is it.

    Waiter ordered wrong steak for my husband so had to take it back and cook the correct one... in meantime I had to eat my dinner by myself. Side was cold when my husband finally got his meal. They gave us a free dessert for the mishap but should have comped the steak. When we received the bill they charged us the higher price for wrong steak so bill had to be corrected. Attention to detail was severely lacking for the price we paid. Even forgot to bring a drink at one time and had to reorder. We were so looking forward to our first high end Texas steak experience, what a disappointment!!!

    It was NY eve. Our bar server was was excellent, Food was great as usual. Makaila? Our server was outstanding. Calm, friendly and patient on a very busy night. She helped make the night even better. I watched her at her other tables and gave great service to all. We ordered by course so as not to rush and she was prompt and detailed with our food. I think this is our 4th NY eve and the team is always excellent. We will certainly be back!

    We had a party of 4 for New Year's Eve. We chose the restaurant due to its close proximity to the Moody Theatre but were delighted with the food, service, and overall experience. My wife and I shared a bone in rib-eye, and it was one best I've tasted in any steakhouse in Austin. (And I've been to many) The waitstaff were very attentive and we made it out in plenty of time to make our concert. We'll definitely be going back.

    We came there for New Year’s Eve. I had always heard that the food there was great, and I was looking forward to the evening. However, I found the experience extremely disappointing. While the service was attentive, there were multiple little things that were done that made me feel rushed. I think the first thing was when the waiter took the butter, although there was bread on the bread plates, and the entrées had not arrived. Or it was when my drink glass was taken although I hadn’t finished it. We were put in the back room where the decor just look tired. Chairs were clearly worn and the menus looked faded. Starters, had been French, onion, soup, chicken fried lobster, and a wedge salad. And one of the reasons we had decided to come here was people said the French onion soup was good and my fiancé had a craving for French onion soup. It was a severe disappointment. It’s more like I would’ve expected if I was at a diner. First, although it was warm, it wasn’t hot like it should’ve been. Usually, you expect to see maybe some toast on the edges of the cheese and see it visible piece of toast under it in the soup. The onions weren’t caramelized like they should’ve been and the broth was watery. The lobster bites arrived sitting on top of a melted butter, and we were told to mix it up. No amount of mixing really got the butter to melt because the amount of butter to the amount of lobster bites was too much and the bites weren’t hot enough. It would’ve been good if it was hotter. Even the wedge salad was a little disappointing. The main course was the fish special, which was supposed to be a blackened redfish with a creole sauce over a risotto. The creole sauce on the fish did not complement it well, and the risotto severely overdone, and was like a lump of paste on the plate. The boneless ribeye was cooked perfectly, but it was clearly underseasoned. It lacked salt. The cream corn was good. We also had the brussels sprouts, which were ok.
