Birthday dinner was wonderful. Meats cuts were beautifully prepared. Cjicken fried lobster appetizer was delicious but was just enough for 2 people. The applewood smoked Old Fashion was nice for sipping while I waited for dinner. The sides were more thN ample for 2 people. The chocolate cake was very rich and the espresso coffee was a little too americana for my taste. Overall a wonderful experience with wonderful service and delicious food.

III Forks hosted a sweet sixteen birthday party for my daughter and eight of her friends. The night went perfectly. The wait staff were very attentive but not obsessive or bothersome. Just the right level of keeping tabs on us all. Thank you!

Great steaks, sides and desserts. Very nice restaurant for special occasions. We went to ring in the New Year there like we have in the past. However we were saddened when champagne wasn’t provided for the midnight toast, considering we were still waiting on dessert when the new year started. Also, we found a curly hair, in the mashed potato side. I mentioned it to our waiter discretely and he said he would take care of it. Well, he didn’t comp the check for the potatoes or offer any other compensation. Our party of 6 spent over $400 for dinner, I guess that didn’t concern them. Maybe we’ll go back to Bob’s for next year’s celebration.

This was my second visit to III Forks in Austin. After visiting III Forks, Ruth Chris, Sullivans, Garrison, and Perry's Steakhouse I found that the food quality and pricing @ III Forks was not up to par. The other listed restaurants all provided equal if not greater service and most definitly better quality food for the $$$.

We had a private room for a group of 12. Everything was great, starting with Emily who offered us the room. She was on top of everything communicating well all through the reservation process. Eric our waiter and his team did a great job making sure everything was perfect. It was a very enjoyable New Years Eve.

Mmmm, King butter!!! It’s a steak topping but I could drink it through a straw. We dined as a party of five to celebrate the holidays. Valet is a must, check! The wine list was extensive, check check. So far so good. We started off with a bang on some raw oysters that were very fresh and a good size. The lobster bisque was divine. Most everyone ordered a steak and they were all delicious. I highly recommend the toppings for some extra yummy but it’s not necessary. Lobster Mac and Brussels sprouts were perfect. Just ok on the 6 cheese potatoes. Tasted more like four cheese ;). They might want to dial up that dish. Wait staff was very attentive. Sides were served family style but you don’t have to serve yourself the first go around, they serve you. That’s nice. I docked a star for ambiance because they put us in a corner behind a wall next to a serving station with a wobbly table under a tv. As long as you don’t get the timeout corner, the rest of the tables are in front of a gorgeous fireplace under beautiful chandeliers. Overall, an excellent evening and we’ll be back.

I love III Forks but was sat in the bar during happy hour so it was really loud and hard to hear the conversation. I would have be perfectly happy with the bar as a walk in but as an Open Table reservation, I was disappointed. The food and service was great and I will definitely go back but will specifically ask not to be set in the bar area when I have made a reservation.

We really enjoyed out date night dinner at III Forks. The food was wonderful. We highly recommend the chicken fried lobster appetizer. The steak was cooked perfectly and cut at table side according to our request. The server was busy with another table but made sure that we were well taken care of and attended by another staff member while he was occupied. We would recommend this to anyone who enjoys great food in a nice atmosphere with great service. We will definitely be back.

Always a great spot for Thanksgiving! Especially, if several in your party are not particularly found of that big, dry bird ;-). They typically have a reasonably priced, 3 course meal, with your choice of soup or salad, the bird (theirs is actually pretty darn good!), tenerloin or salmon, as well as a couple of dessert selections. I think this was our third Turkey day with them.... and we keep going back!

We had a great dinner before our show at the Moody theatre! My husband is hearing impaired and the quiet and warm atmosphere allowed us to enjoy great conversation along with our meal. We had the bone on prime filet which was cooked perfectly and a delicious cut of meat. We are making III Forks our new favorite, replacing Eddie V’s.
