Did not like where we were seated in the area to the back right that connects to the bar area. It feels odd and out of place. Bartender was great, but the table service was meh. Definitely not above and beyond. The food was good, but not great.

Beautiful restaurant, great service and delicious food. They went above and beyond for our anniversary. They came to our table and took a photo and returned with a card signed by all the staff and a print out of the photo. They also brought out a huge slice of chocolate cake to help celebrate. We were thrilled with our experience there. Thank you!

Such a nice location and atmosphere. The service was good but the quality of food was pretty disappointing. We were going to go to Vic & Anthony's and decided to try III Forks instead. The lobster Mac & Cheese was over cooked and dry...it should have been creamy but it was not.
The filet was seasoned well but a med rare steak should have a little juice to it...it was dry as well. I love a good steak and this just didn't make the cut.

Hubby & I went for a last minute date night on a Thursday night. It was kinda dead inside. Waiter seemed a lil nervous. Maybe he was new. You could tell he was trying hard to be an upscale waiter and he did a fantastic job being attentive, answering our questions and making sure we had everything we needed.

Hubby had the Scallop w/Bacon Jam appetizer and he said it was delish! Best scallops he said he’s ever had. III Forks salad says it has nuts but I had to search for tiny nut crumbs & salad wasn’t dressed enough. Kinda disappointed with their “signature salad”. Hubby had Lobster Bisque & I had French Onion soup, and both were outstanding! We cleaned the bowls! Split the 22oz Ribeye and it was great. Waiter sliced it at our table. Perfectly cooked! For sides we had Six Cheese Potatoes (good), Onion Rings app (good) & Lobster Mac-n-Cheese (pasta was under cooked & too much crump topping so we didn’t enjoy it). We shared the Texas Pecan Cake for dessert. Huge but I wished it was a lil sweeter.

Great meal. Reasonably priced (except you have to pay $10 for valet parking, not cool). If you find yourself in the downtown Houston area give it a try.

Seated immediately upon walking into the restaurant. Service on point. Thanks Ernesto! And the food, oh the food. Filet mignon cooked to perfection, as was my boyfriend's pork chop. The surprise cake and shots at the end of the meal for my birthday, capped off a delightful dining experience. We will definitely be back!

We were greeted immediately by the hostess and seated at the table of our choice. The food was delicious. We tried the Waygu beef and it was excellent and perfectly prepared to order. Our waiter Brian is friendly and attentive. I would recommend III Forks as a fine dining experience for a date or business meal.

We selected this restaurant based on its location in downtown Houston and that it is a special treat. We were hosting our family pre-Christmas dinner since we were not going to be together for the hoiday.

Out table was ready when our party arrived although we came separately and the initial party got their drink order in, it took a few minutes for the waiter to swing back by to get the final orders. He seemed like a really nice guy, but it was one of those situations where he was trying to be our buddy rather than just a great server. I'm not sure how else to describe it. It took quite a while for the second order of drinks to come and they came separately. He explained that there was a large corporate party going on upstairs and that the bar was behind. The final glass was just champagne - not something that had to be made. Very odd.

After we eventually got our drinks delivered and dinner ordered, it seemed to go more smoothly. Our salads, steaks and sides were spot on - just what we expected for the price we were paying.

Went for a coworker Christmas lunch. We all had the work day lunch - very reasonable - $30 for a soup or salad and entree. We all had the corn chowder and 2 had the wagyu sirloin steak and I️ had the salmon - all were delicious. Also added a side of six cheese potatoes - nice and gooey! For dessert we shared the Texas Pecan cake and it sure was Texas sized and amazing! Definitely recommend.

Pricey and upscale
This restaurant has plenty of ambiance and style. I was a bit shocked at the price of entrees but the food was absolutely delicious. Their scallop appetiser was the best I’ve ever tasted. However, the steaks started around $40 and quickly went up from there. I selected a prime ribeye and it was so tender you could cut it with a fork. Can’t imagine what the pricier cuts were like. Safe this restaurant for that very special occasion.

We heard great things about this restaurant. It left a bit to be desired. Might have been just an off night. The crabcake appetizer was room temperature. We had onion rings, lobster mac and cheese and the creamed corn for our sides. None were hot and the onion rings-which had a great presentation, were greasy. The steaks all had great flavor and were cooked as we ordered, but took it took over 40 minutes from the time the appetizers were served until our food came. Like I said, it was probably just an off night.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, and he absolutely loved it. This was my third visit to III Forks and his first. Our filet mignon was served to perfection, the service was impeccable, and the food was rich but not overbearing. The only slight annoyance this visit was being seated pretty close to another couple that was rather loud. She kept nagging about her job, and complained about every little thing (rather loudly), and griped about how much everything cost while we were trying to have a pleasant, quiet dinner.

The food was good but the service was not good! We had a group of 10 and the restaurant was not busy but had to ask for hot water, spoons, honey for tea which five people order over 10 times. The restaurant called me and asked about our visit. I told them the food was good but not the service. They said thank you and hung up the phone. Wow no I am sorry, now what happen. I guess they don't want our business.

We had a great time and when we arrived, they knew it was our wedding anniversary. We were greeted with champagne at our table by our waiter and a nice dessert and white russians at the end - all complimentary and unexpected! They also took our picture and gave it to us in a card signed by the staff - such a nice tough! Meal was delicious and service, attentive. We had a wonderful time and will be back!

My husband and I really enjoyed eating at III Forks. We were going to a concert at the House of Blues, so we chose this restaurant since it was close by and had such good reviews. For an appetizer, we ordered the onion rings. The onion rings almost seem like an out of place menu option for a fancier restaurant, but they were very good. For dinner, I ordered the 8oz Filet Mignon and my husband ordered the bone in Ribeye. Both of our steaks were tender and cooked perfectly. The sides are great for sharing. We ordered the creamed corn and mashed potatoes. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. This restaurant is pricey, but it’s a very good spot for a special occasion.

 (Denver)·Dined on November 4, 2017

Service was outstanding, food was great. Our only issue was the noise level. There was a wine tasting function in the next room with a DJ and it was very very loud. Everyone in the dining room had to practically yell to have a conversation. Perhaps some tablecloths (a couple of layers) would have helped absorb some sound. We were hoping for a quieter dinner. That being said, all four of us agreed we would go again, although we would make sure there were no similar events taking place the same night.

If you are looking for a disco tech and wine bar this might be your place. If you are looking for a high end steakhouse this is probably not your place. Can’t express our disappointment III Forks decided to turn 80% of the restaurant into a wine tasting disco and having ten tables for dinner without telling those of us that made reservations for dinner what we were in for, certainly not a nice dinner. Nothing against a good wine tasting but not when it ruins a dinner with family. Had to wait over 30 mins for a 6:15 reservation. They offered to make a six top into a four top but then decided they needed it for a 7pm reservation but nobody ever sat there the entire time we were there. Poor poor service. My suggestion is there are better steakhouses around that will provide the service that a high end restaurant should have! You can get good food at a lot of places but service defines a top end restaurant and III Forks does have it!

Late Monday dinner to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday with a small group of 8. The restaurant was empty but fully staffed so imagine my disappointment when none of the staff acknowledged that we were celebrating a birthday. Mind you I book the reservation and noted the birthday as well as informing the host upon arrival. As a matter of fact dessert wasn’t offered at all.

One of the best steaks I have had! Was cooked to perfect medium rare. The bacon wrapped crab stuffed shrimp were out of this world. My Girlfiend had the pork chop. It was tender and juicy the ancho bbq suace was a perfect blend of sweet and spicy. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Quiet atmosphere allowed for conversation.
