III Forks - Austin Ratings and Reviews
It was Valentines Day. Reservation was made but they did not seat us till 30 minutes later. The bar was ridiculous as far as ordering drinks, so unorganized and total chaos. Very difficult to order a drink. Just ignored for the most part. A young manager with red tie asked if he could help us get anything and we said we are trying to order drinks and he said, ask the bartender, that was laughable. That is what we were attempting to do but thought why ask and then be rude. I would never go back on a holiday. Not a good service experience even though the food was good. Usually, when you pay the price to dine in a very nice and expensive restaurant you get treated better.
Food was exceptional and the surroundings and staff were great. The only only criticism is that the music was a little loud in that it was hard to carry on a conversation at the table and it could have been a little more easy listening. It was more like bar music.
Very posh and upscale restaurant with a "Dallas Country Club " feel. The waiters are professionals within their discipline and are extremely well -versed in the details of the dining and drink offerings. The food is high quality and fresh. It's expensive but elite usually is.
The food was good, but not worth the cost. I’ve had much better steaks for less.
I had one of the worse martinis I have ever had - Tito Handmade Martini. The drink was made with hand pressed olive juice - it was at least 80% olive juice which was so over powering I could not finish the drink.
Looking for a great steak? This is the place! You just can't get a better steak hardly anywhere!
Used to be a much better value when the sides were included with the meal - now they are apparently a la carte -
On this visit, we got our steaks and had to wait awhile before they even brought the sides -
Service otherwise was great!
The food was just ok, but we expected excellence for the price. The steaks were cooked right, but the Brussels sprouts were way underdone, even though they were roasted and then fried. The rest of the meal was, again, just ok. The service was good, but nothing special. The best part was not having to re-park after a show at the ACL theatre.
Absolutely the best steakhouse in Austin! Our server - Mickey - was very attentive and responsive. My wife had the veggie ravioli while I had the ribeye. Both meals were remarkable! Steak was perfectly prepared. Side dishes are huge! Dessert is a must! Entire staff was there to make sure our dinner was enjoyable. Well done!
VERY NICE AND ATTENTIVE STAFF,AMBIANCE WAS GOOD,FOOD WAS TERRIFIC,
A LITTLE PRICEY BUT YA GET WHAT YOUR PAYING FOR,I ASK FOR A ROSE FOR MY WIFE FOR OUR ANNIVERSARY AND EVERYONE WISHED US A HAPPY ANNIVERSARY AND THE ROSE CAME TO THE TABLE SHORTLY AFTER BEING SEATED
The food was outstanding! the service was perfect, we were in a little room that help 8 and couldn't have been a better atmosphere, not much noise, just a great dinner with business partners. thanks for making our experience so enjoyable and impressionable!
Not my first time at this establishment. As always the food and service were exceptional. However, the wife sent the lobster bisque back. Steaks are superb and the wine list is fantastic. Every employee including management takes responsibility for your dining pleasurer.
Front door valet parking is $10.00
