Fantastic flavorful steaks in a upscale yet relaxed atmosphere w/ great service. Our Waiter, Joshua, was friendly and insightful with great recommendations throughout dinner, including the perfect wine pairing. Great presentation on the 18oz NY Strip w/ flambé bourbon salt that tasted as good as it looked. A little sprinkling of that over the steak really amplified an already rich savory flavor.

Great food and impeccable service. We waited for our party to arrive at the bar and partakes of a very good happy hour selection of drinks and oysters. Steak education was impeccable as we chose the right cut and determined the best crowns and caps. Plentiful tasty sides. Creamed corn and lobster Mac are delish. Sample many is my suggestion. We were a little loud but nobody seemed to mind and added to the festive atmosphere, because it was a little dark inside, like a cave. I got there a little early and had to park my own car, but there is ample parking in the surrounding buildings. Bring a client or friends plenty of options for food and drink.

First-class operation all the way. It was our anniversary, and three different managers came over to wish us a happy one, and they threw in a parting celebratory drink at the conclusion of our stay . The food was top-notch, the staff was helpful without being intrusive. Cannot recommend the place more highly, especially for a special occasion.

The food was very good but our server Megan made the experience outstanding!! Everyone ordered the III Forks salad while it was good it could be better if they used butter lettuce vs spring mix. I ordered the flat iron steak and Brussels sprouts, the meat was incredible but I’ve had much better Brussels sprouts. The restaurant’s lighting is darker than I prefer but you eventually adjust. Overall, a wonderful dining experience.

The server wasn’t very friendly. We ordered a steak and asked for tomatoes and onions. She said yeah someone will come by with a tray in a little bit with those. When she came back to check on us 10 min later we asked again for tomatoes and onions. She said “oh did that guy not come around”. She finally on her 3rd trip to the table brought the tomatoes.

Gavin our waiter was personable and authentic. There were some mishaps with the oysters, soup, and hot sauce. Gavin, then went above and beyond making sure our night went perfectly and delivered in abundance. Me and my partner Lexi enjoyed our experience thoroughly and have already shared our time spent at III-Forks.

First and last time at this location - frequent visitors to Dallas location. Even with reservations, we were seated in a booth next to the bar. There was a large table of loud, drunk men who ruined the dining experience for that area of the restaurant. I felt that management should have handled the situation.

The service and food were outstanding. It was a bit noisy when we first arrived .....a lot of people in the bar area after work on a Friday. But that lessened throughout the night. The singer in the bar area was fantastic. We were planning on going to another bar nearby but instead stayed because of the music. Highly recommend

This is by far the BEST steak house in Austin! The level of professionalism from the hostess, bartender, waiter (Thomas) and Sommelier (Dave). The food was worth the high price...which we expected. It was around $140 per person with a appetizer / salads / wine / sides / steaks and tip. Thomas was an exceptional waiter--his suggestions were spot-on. Dave didn't want to just sell us a bottle of wine--he took the time to ask our tastes, what we were all eating (steaks all around which did make the decision easier). Service was outstanding! The manager came by asking if everything was to our liking. No one one pushy, let us dine at our leisure without any interruptions. III Forks isn't a place to go grab a quick bite--it's a dining experience you need to be prepared to enjoy...slowly. Get the bone-in filet--also the scallop appetizer (with the bacon jam). The III Forks salad is outstanding, as is their brussels sprouts and 6 cheese potatoes. DO NOT SKIP DESERT!!! The 6 layer Grenache chocolate tort is outstanding!!! III Forks....you deserve an additional "tine"!!!
