Steakhouse
III Forks, one of the nation's USDA Prime Steakhouses, is located at the Village Market in Lakeshore East, just north of Millennium Park in beautiful downtown Chicago. This modern restaurant is simply sizzling with style and provides the perfect setting for upscale dining, rooftop lounging, private parties and special events. III Forks is a contemporary evolution of the classic steakhouse featuring USDA Prime Beef, ocean-fresh seafood and locally sourced Midwest fare. Less than half of one percent of all US beef makes the III Forks Prime quality grade. This leads to great steaks that offer abundant marbling, juiciness, tenderness and superior flavor.

III Forks also offers an impressive venue for private affairs. Three private dining rooms will be available for corporate meetings, seated social gatherings and cocktail receptions. The rooftop lounge is also available for private parties of up to 150 guests.

My boyfriend and I went to III Forks to celebrate his birthday and we enjoyed our dinner thoroughly! We were running a little late due to traffic but the staff was very understanding and accommodated us. The food was delicious and the waiter brought us a decadent slice of chocolate cake and champagne! Definitely will return.

I brought my friend here to dine in a beautiful atmosphere for her birthday, and we reserved for an outside table for party of 4. I’ll start by saying that our experience was THE best experience I’ve had thus far dining in downtown Chicago. The view into the park is gorgeous, the perfect romantic setting for a date. Our server, Victor, was extremely polite and courteous. The hostess station was very warm and welcoming. Not to mention our meal was so delicious and absolutely worth every penny spent. I will absolutely be returning and recommending everyone I know to dine here for special occasions.

The meal and service were impeccable as usual. My filet mignon was perfect and it was the first time I got a crown—blue cheese and it was great. My only suggestion would be to add a gluten free dessert—like creme brulee, flourless chocolate cake, mousse or gelato. I was offered a fruit plate of course but that did not appeal to me. It was still a lovely meal!

III Forks never disappoints! Seriously has become one of my favorite spots in the city and the service there is always exceptional and the outdoor space is absolutely stunning. The staff here seriously takes care of you and will go over and beyond any expectations. Thank you all so much for your continuous & amazing service. See you soon.

I went for a date night meal with my boyfriend, and honestly was not expecting too much. I don't really eat red meat, so steak houses are typically a gamble as to how good the non-beef options will be, but this place was AMAZING! The quality of everything was outstanding and everything from my salmon to my boyfriend's steak to the cake we shared at the end was DELICIOUS! I admittedly stole a bite of steak from my boyfriend, and if all steak tasted like that, I'd happily eat red-meat all the time! Our waiter Jorge was so nice and professional, and all the staff worked hard to serve us well while making us feel safe. I can't wait to go again!

This was a really great restaurant. The outdoor seating is really nice and has some of the nicest staff ever. Ashley and Tony are the best servers! The steaks were cooked perfectly, extremely tender and tasted amazing. Drinks were perfect and sides are great to share. Best restaurant we went during our stay in Chicago

First time. Good choice. Food was scrumptious. We asked for better seating while sitting on high top tables because of high winds and was told no other seating available. However 2 other guets that came after us was seated then moved 10 minutes after they requested alternative seating as well.

It was wonderful! Our food was fantastic! We sat on the rooftop overlooking lit up Chicago high rises! The view was great! The flowers surrounding the table were beautiful and our group had great privacy! The food was top notch! It was an experience and we didn’t feel like we needed to move to another bar for cocktails after. The drink and cocktail menu is great! Would recommend!

The food and view was amazing. The rooftop area was quiet and a great place to eat. The service was not good though - our waiter was not attentive at all. He seemed to only have time for one table and even when they relocated to the fire pit he seemed to find them and only spend time with them.

Seriously one of the best hidden gems of a steak house in Chicago! Bonus, it has a rooftop! It was a perfect evening with great weather. The food was delicious. Our server Junior was amazing and all his food suggestions were on point. Love going somewhere where you can tell the servers like the food they serve. The perfect ending was the night cap we had by the fire pit. What a great nightfall! Will definitely be back!!

Generally I ALWAYS love it here despite how pricey it is because service is SO GOOD. Unfortunately this last time was a miss. While 3 Forks staff (Christina) went above and beyond to get us seated at a table I wanted, our actual server was way off the mark by not knowing all the specials, not acknowledging a special occasion and not checking on us for additional drink orders. I will be back since this is the first time I was disappointed in 3 forks service.

The appetizers were not warm enough; and there was a limited amount of seafood items on the menu which was disappointing. Also your online information indicated that the restaurant was a “business casual” attire establishment but there were people there with shorts and sneakers on. We could have dressed more relaxed had we know any type of dress wear was acceptable. The prices are definitely overrated too. The best food item was the desert!

Our host Michael was not accommodating. When we found out we were to be seated at a high table and we said that would be difficult for us due to age and mobility, he said he would change it this time only but never again in the future. It sounded like a threat!

My steak was ordered medium well. I was able to cut through the steak but I was not able to chew most of the steak because it was all gristle and some was fat. When the waitress came by to check on the table she noticed the steak scraps and asked was everything ok. I explained to her and she just said I’m sorry.

The rooftop was beautiful and the lemon drop was good also.
