About III Forks - Chicago

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.

I believe this was my 5th time dining here in the past 3 years. Each time it has exceeded my expectations. We live in Indiana and know there are many great restaurants in the City but we keep being drawn to the quality of this restaurant.

I have dined here several times and in many instances, it was a birthday celebration. When I made my reservation online, I added comments that specifically said we were coming to celebrate my son’s birthday and that I wanted the complimentary cake/candle. I placed a follow-up call to request a window table and remind them that it was a birthday celebration. I was told my requests would be honored. Not only were we seated as far away from the window as you can get, when I reminded the waiter that it was my son’s birthday, he proceeded to read off the list of dessert options. When I mentioned that I called ahead to request the birthday celebration, he once again offered the paid dessert menu. To add insult to injury, we witnessed the birthday celebration for two other patrons while we were dining. Extremely disappointed and will never dine here again.

III Forks is a good restaurant. My opener, a loaded crab cake was delicious but just a bit lukewarm. The seared scallop with a succotash and bacon bedding was quite good. My wine choice, the Craggy Sauvignon Blanc, was delicious. the service was good but could have been a bit more attentive!

I've been to III Forks several times the past few years. Obviously I like it. The food is excellent.
This particular visit, the service was a bit unattentive, a martini was delivered without olives and when requested the olives took a while to arrive. Also, this establishment usually has a moderate to low noise level, one reason I choose to return, but on this visit there was a loud (but happy) group sitting next to us. Their table and ours were the last on the premises that evening so the noise continued right up until the end of our meal. It was odd, or our misfortune, that when seated, the room was mostly empty and we were seated right next to them.
At the end of the meal, we had to wait a while for the check, and finally had to ask for it. The waiter brought it and then disappeared. We already had our coats on and were trying to leave so I asked the manager to ring us up, which he did.
Usually the service and the noise level are much better, and the fare is very good, so I will be returning.

I feel like the steaks are not as good as they have been. I usually get the 45 day aged and for the price I just don't know if it's worth it.

Came back since I was in the area and felt my iron levels low and was craving red meat. I sat at the bar and the bartender immediately greeted me and asked if I wanted food and drinks or just drinks. I came for both, so she set me up right away to eat - you know place mat, utensils etc.

I ordered the bone-in ribeye medium. It came out and it looked a tad smaller compared to other bone-in ribeyes I've had at other restaurants and less marbling. BUT it was perfectly cooked and so damn delicious! I don't know how they age or season it, but it was truly amazing!!!

 (Phoenix)·Dined on October 26, 2017

Overall experience: 5 stars

Ambience: Quality steakhouse with dimmed lighting, a nice hum/buzz of conversation and music that allowed for actual conversation, lovely silverware/glasses

Service: Greeted with a smile and pleasant conversation by the hostess; Jorge made sure our glasses were never empty of water (or the excellent wine options we had ordered); Jorge suggested dishes and drinks that satiated our varied appetites; the timing of the dishes was also well timed; the birthday girl had a smile on her face throughout the evening

Food: Cooked to perfection meats at medium rare and medium, respectively. The pasta was also delicious. The wine list is extensive offering several of my favorite wineries and introducing me to others. The side dishes are also cooked well: asparagus that’s not too soggy, flavorful spinach, hot and crispy/flaky onion rings. The chocolate cake is rich and decadent. The bread pudding is light and airy.

Value: III Forks is comparable to other steakhouses in terms of ambience, price, food options. III Forks stands out from other steakhouses in terms of service. III Forks may appear fancy, fit for a special occasion—which it is—but it is also a place to go share a nice meal with family and friends. It’s a quiet, approachable, comfortable steakhouse that allows for date night, girls night, birthday/anniversary/graduation night, whatever, but I like that it’s also a place where I can walk into the restaurant and be welcomed to a perfectly cooked medium rare steak and a glass of Cabernet in my jeans and tennis shoes and still have a conversation without shouting over music or other party’s conversations.

Recommend: steak (filet mignon, NY Strip), lobster bisque, III Forks salad, burrata (especially the tomatoes),asparagus, spinach, mashed potatoes, bread with salted butter, chocolate cake, and ask for the homemade Irish cream with single cask Jim Bean with your chocolate cake

Although my waitress was very pleasant, we were not pleased with our service. We had an extended wait time before our food was served. Bread was not brought to us, we had to request it and the waitress forgot what my husband ordered. The cocktails were good, the food was excellent and I enjoyed the ambiance.

Waitress was horrible. No bread was brought to the table. Ordered 2 glasses of wine and waited 15 mins before they were brought. Waitress never came back after taking our order. Food was brought by someone else and she never came back to see if we need anything else. She came back at the end with the check.

We wanted our steaks medium rare and they came out rare as can be! The waiter was nice and took them back. It took forever (and it was a dead night) only to find we didn’t get new steaks they were our originals! My husband is a butcher and could tell not to mention his was literally “charred” on top. Very very disappointing

Dinner downstairs was wonderful - very good food, portions larger than other upscale restaurants, attentive friendly staff. The rooftop deck was a fantastic surprise with a very knowledgeable and helpful bar tender. Views of surrounding area are lovely with the mix of open seating and private spaces designed well.

This was our 2nd visit. This time for my wife's birthday. They were very accomadating to our reservation change (earlier show up), seating (reserved for rooftop but we asked to move indoors because it was cooler than expected), and after a great meal, they served my wife cake and gave her a gift for her birthday. All of this was done with smiles all around. Great experience!
