This was an excellent experience. The food, service, and the ambiance was spectacular. I also appreciate the follow up call after my time there. Shows that the company cares about their customers.

Second time to eat there last week. Once for business, and Saturday night with my wife. Started with Applewood smoked old fashioneds . You can’t have too many of these. Then king crab legs, III Forks salad, steaks and more old fashioneds. Outstanding service by Sherry. Best in Austin.

Filet mignon was ordered medium yet was served very well done (hockey puck). The potatoes are corn were lukewarm at best. The scallops were bad and made my date sick. The server barely spoke to us. This restaurant came highly recommended however unfortunately I cannot forward on such a recommendation in good conscience.

The Smokey old fashioned was the best I’ve ever had. We had the 6 oz and 12 oz filets with asparagus and roasted Brussel sprouts. The steaks were tender and perfectly cooked. The brussel sprouts, covered in sweet chili sauce, were beyond yummy. Excellent service.

Expected a quality beef, not at par to many high end steak houses in Austin. Wrong temperature, not enough flavor, not aged, burned all around, not cooked enough to my liking in the inside. Overall, mediocre for the price you are paying.
Great service, management decided to Comp my steak for the time I had to wait for a meal and still got it wrong. Waiter did a fantabulous job. Ok ambiance, restaurant is getting old, need temível. May try again one day to see if improved any.

I could tell the servers on this particular night were spread thin. Our server was excellent just a little slower than we might have preferred.

I wish I could remember our waitress’ name. She was bubbly and took great care of us. I like that 3 Forks has some smaller steaks that I can finish. The roasted corn side was excellent. Starters were fantastic. They have some nice, moderate wines that won’t break the bank. Best of all, they have space between the tables. Room to move without feeling cramped like many restaurants.

Amazing from the moment we stepped in the door. Beautiful ambiance sitting by the fireplace for dinner. In-house sommelier to help with our wine selection- which was delicious. All the food was on point. Service was excellent. Gina took great care of us. Creme brûlée- so yummy! "VIP" house hooch, was one of the most delicious dessert drinks ever!!!! Highly suggest if looking for a nice night out and delicious food.

Overall the experience was very good. The food was perfectly prepared and well presented. The grilled cauliflower was excellent as well. We were only somewhat disappointed with dessert - the peanut butter cake, while nicely presented, was a bit too sweet for our taste. That said, our overall experience was a 4.5.

We felt rushed. We never had a minute to finish a conversation without the waitress coming over to move us onto the next phase: menu- drink - appetizer - specials - order - how is everything - another drink - dessert. We must have been interrupted 11 times in a one hour meal. It was a special occasion. I was hoping for a peaceful relaxing evening. It wasn't.

Food and atmosphere were great. A friend tries to send a bottle of champagne to our table but they said it was from me so we thought they messed up my open table reservation. So they took it back. Other than that it was lovely

3 Forks has always been a favorite for me in Austin. AUSTIN has lots of good places to eat for just about any food. The steaks at 3F are good cuts of meat and always cooked properly. The creamed corn... yum

The best steak I have had in Austin, and we have been here since 2002. The cream corn puts the other Steak houses to shame.

This was my third time at III Forks. It did not disappoint! My husband and I love the chicken fried lobster tail. He had the rack of lamb, and wanted to suck all the meat off of the bone, but that would’ve been horrible for the other patrons. I had the 16oz ribeye which was phenomenal. John our waiter for the second time was amazing and attentive and just flat out wonderful. We love III Forks however our wallets do not, so we have to enjoy it on rare occasions. But when we do allow ourselves we do not regret it.

The service was outstanding! My wife asked for a medium steak and when it arrived it was medium/well, so they took it back and brought her another until they got it right! That was deeply appreciated. We had to make a late reservation because they were so booked by we arrived early, in the hope they might be able to seat us earlier than our reservation, and they did! The hostesses were incredibly helpful and kind, and the ambiance was lively and warm. Overall, we had a wonderful Valentine's Day dining experience, and look forward to our next visit to Three Forks!
