    As always III Forks remains one of the best steaks in Austin. Service impeccable as always management very attentive to make sure that you are being taken care of, and the food as always was superb, the NY Strip was done just right and the calamari appetizer and sides were great. Highly recommend, not cheap but you get what you pay for.

    We had a great dinner. The food was amazing. My buddy ordered a particular steak and we all remember him ordering that steak. However, I guess they brought out a more expensive steak that none of us could tell the difference. When he got the bill, it was double what he should’ve paid. The waitress said she would adjust it. The manager manager comes over about 15 minutes later. Asked if he enjoyed the steak and the waitress said she repeated the order, which none of us remember her doing. The manager asked if he would meet him half way on the cost! I’ve never seen or heard of a manager trying to recoup cost over a mistake. Was very unprofessional and left a bad taste for all of us. So much we skipped ordering a drink and left. Although the food was delicious I don’t think I would return because of how the manager chose to handle the situation.

    looking at the menu you will compare this to your typical steak & seafood place. It is not the old school establishment that you are accustomed to. It is much more relaxed and hip. My steak and sides were spot on and the service was impeccable. My waiter Mick, needs to train others in the art of patron interaction. He is a true gem. If you want great food and a dynamite experience, you should ask to be seated with him.

    My family and I celebrated my birthday. The staff was very welcoming from door to table and then some. The wait staff was informative and attentive. The food, wine, and cocktails ordered were excellent. If you love coffee cocktails, you must try the espresso martini. The birthday dessert is made to share amongst the table, they even give you a shot of Irish whiskey mixed with coconut and milk... delicious.

    Fantastic, attentive service. The ribeye cap was the fattiest piece of steak I believe I've ever had. Mostly inedible. The appetizer (fried lobster) tasted great, but the portion was ridiculously small. For the money, not impressed at all.

    Came in for Valentines Day so I have to give them a little grace here. The restaurant was packed (understandably) but I was so excited for a special night. Started off with a drink while waiting for our table. My margarita (off the cocktail menu) wasn’t good. I took a few sips but essentially wasted $20 because I knew it’d upset my stomach - it tasted like straight juice. Our server was fantastic! Started with the wedge salad and calamari, so good! I got the 8oz filet med-rare and my boyfriend got the 16 oz NY strip med rare and they were perfect. Our sides, however, weren’t great. The mashed potatoes and lobster Mac came out cold. I’m not one to say something, but for the price and occasion, we decided to send them back. The server handled the situation so well and brought us new sides. They were slightly warmer but not hot. Not great for ~$50 worth of sides. We also got a bottle of wine which was great. Overall, it was good but it didn’t blow my socks off like I excepted.

    My husband and I were disappointed in our entire experience. Upon being seated at the table it had a piece of half eaten bread and used butter on it. Instead of them fully cleaning the table they just rubbed the crumbs off. We know because crumbs were still on the table when we sat down. The food was eh, my husband said the best part was the bread. We ordered filet mignons and have had better steaks from Roadhouse. We were offered a side of butter to go on top of the steak, the butter made the steak edible. After being asked if we wanted this butter we were charged $16 for it. We also ordered a shareable side of potatoes and have made better potatoes at home. The lobster tail was good. Our cocktails were good. The bathroom was nicer than the restaurant. We will not go back there again. It was a disappointment.
