Great steak house. Attentive staff that made excellent recommendations for our party of six. All PPE and social distancing measures were applied. My table felt safe and satisfied from the meal. Will be back soon.

The restaurant was quiet and there were only a few tables seated around us, which made it nice for a first date. It was quiet enough to where you could have a nice conversation and not have to yell over crowd noise. The waiter, Thomas, was superb. He was very friendly and extremely professional. He interacted with us and made the dining experience a very pleasant one. The food was good. I honestly expected more from a $135 dry aged steak, but it was not bad. I’ve had better for a lot less. Overall, I give this experience a 9/10.

Love this restaurant!! It is our go-to for special occasions! Always great food and fantastic service! Not a fan of the recent renovations. We really loved the intimacy of the booths. Now, it feels too open, more like a ballroom.
But it’s still a favorite!

Very nice experience. The food was just not quite as good as the last time we were there. Could have just been what we chose.

Felt like our server was rushing us through the meal. Our steak was not as flavorful as our last visit. Even though we ordered a filet, this time around instead of ordering a 6 oz filet we ordered a 12 oz filet and asked that it be split. I think this may have been where we went wrong. Our main complaint was by far the service. Our previous experience was very impressive, this time severely lacking.

It was our 35th anniversary and we wanted a nice delicious meal with great ambience. We’d eaten at III Forks before and remembered the great time we had then. So it was a unanimous decision to eat there again. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. We even had a great conversation with Ernest while waiting for our meal.

The food was good except my steak .The way it’s cook is over open flame most of the steak was burnt and Inedible for a 135$ steak I would have hoped to be Served a perfect steak .I also felt like we were seated in the back near an exit door because we are minorities I spent $600 on my dinner just to have staff staring at me every few seconds as the restocked glasses .Will not be going back there ever but Someone else may have a great time .Jeffrey’s is the better Choice

Everything was heavenly, but the Bone Marrow appetizer was sublime! Our server, Stephanie, was fantastic and very friendly. We felt like the whole place catered to us as it was our 33rd anniversary and many people greeted us and ensured that we had everything that we could possibly want. Cannot recommend this place highly enough!!!!

We came here in June 2020 (aka during COVID) on Father's Day so I can't speak to what a "normal" dining experience would be as far as ambiance. However, the food was EXCELLENT and the service was outstanding. A little pricey but comparable to all the other steakhouses that are around. Would definitely return.

Went her for our anniversary dinner and we were amazed at how every waiter, host, etc, knew it was our anniversary and congratulated us. The service was impeccable and the food was to die for. We both got filet's with king's butter--AMAZING. For sides we had the mashed potatoes with fried brussels sprouts. The brussels sprout could've been cooked/fried longer but they were still tasty. For dessert we had bread pudding with cinnamon ice cream on top--HEAVEN.

Overall, everything was great and we definitely will be back in the future. They also had 1/2 priced bottle wines at the time and we definitely took advantage of that.

This is the first time we have dined out since early March. Celebrated 30th wedding anniversary in one of our favorite restaurants in Austin. The attention to sanitation/safety tips/cleanliness and making customers feel comfortable was over the top. There were very few people dining. The food was stellar and the service flawless

This is by far my favorite steak house, The filet mignon melts in your mouth. They usually have a bone in Filet as well if you prefer a little more flavor.

Make sure you ask for the chicken fried lobster its not on the menu but is amazing!!!

It was our first restaurant experience since covid so we didn’t know what to expect. The restrictions used to keep everyone safe were explained from the beginning. Our service was excellent and our dining experience was very nice. We have been going to Austin’s 111 Forks since it opened and will continue to enjoy the experience that the staff has provided.

III Forks gave us an amazing experience for our anniversary. The service was impeccable. Food was amazing and the small congratulatory gestures were quite the treat! They took precautionary measures to serve while under restrictions due to covid 19. At no point were we ever uncomfortable or questioned the health measures the restaurant took to ensure we were safe. THANK YOU III Forks!!! You will see us back many more times with friends.
