I cannot possibly begin to describe the experience we had at lll forks. The steak melted in our mouths. My Filet Mignon came with my choice of butter, garlic, truffle topping. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. . . My son had a butter crab lump topping. The sides go without saying. DO NOT MISS THIS RESTAURANT IF YOU ARE IN AUSTIN TEXAS!! The service is incredible, friendly, absolutely no rushing and meet any allergy need you may have. 3 people checked mine. The whole night was incredible because of the staff. Don't miss it. Thank you for making our challenge as warriors so special!

It was our anniversary. The food was great and the setting was nice. The waitress was very attentive. It's a little pricey but that was expected. A little noisy in that room that night.

This was my first time attending the establishment and overall not bad. The environment was great but my steak was not as good as I was expecting it to be. I ordered what the waiter said was his “personal favorite”. I asked for well done and came with a long of pink. The steak also contained a lot of fat which I am not a fan of. The rest of the food was great but sadly the main reason I went was to eat a good steak.

Food was unbelievable as usual. Every thing was delicious. Service was not so great. Not like my last experience. Waited 15 minutes before waiter showed up. Never received bread and it was hard to get drinks. Also felt very rushed. Wanted to enjoy romantic dinner and it was like wam bam thank you ma’am. Again food was great service was not near what I expected. Would not return because of the service.

We were seated in the back room beside a very noisy table of about 37. We were hoping for a late intimate quiet Valentine’s dinner but that wasn’t the case (2/16). The food & service was mediocre.

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.

The atmosphere was so romantic and great for Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking for a nice restaurant for you, and your significant other this is the place to go.

Terrible service, the food was priced higher than it's value. Waitstaff rude and condescending. Even hostess and valets were rude. Disappointment after disappointment. Perry's is an altogether superior experience.

A steakhouse is a steakhouse is a steakhouse, no one is noteworthy. But III Forks proved me wrong. Delicious food with great, friendly and peraonable service. Even with the Valentines's rush, our server took the time to make sure we were pleased.

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!
