My friend wanted to try a good steak while we were in Austin. He thought it was the best ever.
Personally I have never paid for such a high end restaurant meal so I said gulp. :-)

Always excellent service and outstanding food. Steak is the specialty here and it is as good as I ever had (and I'm 77 years old). Appetizers are also outstanding. Service always goes beyond expectation.

I ate here on a Monday night and it was not crowded, the service was very good. I couldnt give 5 stars for 2 reasons. The broccoli was under cooked, it was hard and difficult to eat. When I chose a glass of wine that should have been in stock , they informed me they ran out. It wasnt super rare or even one that is usually in really high demand. This was dissapointing.
The steak was outstanding, one of the best ive had, cooked exactly as i ordered it. The desert was amazing as well.

Was in Austin for a trade show and seeking a top notch steakhouse for a business dinner. Found III Forks after some web research. So glad I found this gem!
We were warmly greeted by Ernest upon arrival. He accompanied us to the table and made conversation. He learned we were first timers and made it a point to check on us two more times during our meal for feedback. Really nice touch. Our server was a lively Irishman with a great POV on the food and wine.
We started by splitting some appetizers. We enjoyed raw oysters and the tomato di stephano burrata. Oysters were beautiful but did not come with horse radish. However that was quickly remedied after asking. The tomato dish was rich and savory. In addition, the complimentary bread was warm, light and delicious.
For the entree course we selected beef as the protein. I had a filet mignon with the oscar crown. Fantastic steak and plenty of succulent crab in the oscar topping. My companion had a filet as well, but with the King's Butter crown. Rave reviews on this foie gras based topping. As sides we first selected the fried Brussel Sprouts which were perfect. The accompanying lemon aoili was fine, but the sprouts were good enough to stand on their own. Secondly we did the cream corn which was savory and sweet. Great rendition of a classic dish.
We washed all of this down with a velvety red wine, a Sangiovesse to be specific.
We were sufficiently full at this point and did not get to the dessert course.
Overall III forks is a finely executed steakhouse. Amazing and well developed flavors. Bright, enthusiastic and sincere staff. If you're in Austin, make it a point to do at least one dinner here.

The food is always incredible. The service never disappoints. We were charmed by the sound of the wonderful musicians as we passed through to our table and asked to be seated in the Bar area. They were able to accommodate that. Highly recommend to anyone not in a tight date budget.

Two out of three steaks were very very tough. One was very over cooked. Side portions were small. Expected a good tender cut of meat for that price as well as being properly cooked. Super disappointed

Food was amazing. The ambiance was outstanding. I took my girlfriend there for her birthday, and it was much more than we expected. The wine list was a 10 page book. The prices are high, but the quality of the meal is def worth the price. The service was outstanding and we had great recommendations from our waitress.

Our first opportunity to enjoy this restaurant - celebrating 2 birthdays and an anniversary. It was everything we'd hoped for and so much more. Our server, Sherry, was fabulous. As a rule we need to remind servers to slow things down - not so with Sherry. She picked up on cues and was perfect in her timing. The food was delicious from beginning (oysters, chicken fried lobster & bone marrow with sheep cheek) to end (a variety of delicious desserts). Wine selection was very nice; entrees were delicious (several steaks choices, crab legs, seafood). We are big fans of the "old steakhouse" and this was by far one of the finest we've been to. It will definitely become a frequent go-to! Looking forward to our next visit.
