 (Houston)·Dined on November 12, 2017

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!

 (New Orleans)·Dined on November 11, 2017

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.

We had the worst experience ever! I spoke highly about III forks to my husband n our close cousins and first of all our reservation was not "found" after booking through open table! Second the waiter spilled my cucumber martini all over my pants and didn't even apologize all he stated he'd take it to top it off! Then over an hour to receive our dinner! I will not return much less recommend

Elias was a great server. He and the restaurant went over and above to attend to us. The food was absolutely superb. The filet was as beautiful and it was excellent - one of the very best I've ever had. They made my daughter's birthday super fun.
The food and attention were above 5star+!
Can't wait to dine there again.

Food was excellent, but service did not measure up. We asked for extra sauce with our appetizer and never received it. Some main courses came out wrong, but were immediately corrected. We asked for a knife to cut and share our desert and never received it. For a fine dining establishment, the service is lacking and needs improvement.

From the phone call to confirm to the reservation to the dinner everything was exceptional. My husband and I had the HRW menu, but added the Lobster Mac-n-cheese. We had a few cocktails and they were potent but good. We were there celebrating our anniversary. They took a complimentary photo of us, and also sent out a huge piece of chocolate with two shots of there house made Irish cream. The experience was fantastic. Definitely going back again

One word for the evening: Salt.

Food was perfectly cooked in that the meats were tender, succulent and the right texture BUT everything was SUPER SALTY. I want to say the food was great after we shaved off a thin outer layer of the pork and the streak. If not, it was too salty to eat. The meats (steak medium rare and pork chops) themselves, however, were cooked to perfection. The salt is obviously added at or near the end of cooking and crusts all the food.

All the dishes had SALT. Even the Butter had salt sprinkled on it. The side dishes had salt. I couldn't swallow the kale because of the salt but again it was cooked very nicely. I wanted to order more liquor and wine but I had to drink so much water instead.

Chef cooked everything well but I don't think he ever tasted the food he prepared.

There were a total of four tops in the restaurant at the time we came in service was unbelievably slow. Food value was extremely overpriced. Meal was prepared wrong. Ask to speak to a manager waited 10 minutes and then went and asked and found him. Asked if he had been told he said yes was just giving me time to calm down. Not sure of the stars that this restaurant has but it needs to be downgraded. As a chef I'm well aware of how long it should take to prepare a steak and a salad!

Service was not attentive. We felt like we were being ignored. Multiple errors in billing (overcharged 2 of the 3 meals) and then payments processing (charged wrong amounts to credit cards, but we were able to correct it through tips so each card holder paid their fair share and waiter got collective amount of tip intended for table.

Something too salty on the Hamachi first course. Steak was also a bit salty. In both cases, the saltiness was uneven - way too much on parts, more or less fine on others. Wasn't accustomed to having salt added to sashimi and wouldn't want that again.

Stopped in for Restaurant Weeks-Houston. Had delicious meals served by knowledgeable waitstaff. Even the sommelier stepped in twice. First, to help us select a really nice bottle of wine, then, to help as a tiny gnat found its way into my glass of wine (the sommelier replaced it with a terrific glass of champagne). All in all, our first visit became a desire to come again.

We were in Houston for my husbands birthday and wanted a good steak. Asked around and had a couple recommendations. One required a business casual attire well we didn't bring that for a fun weekend. So we chose 3 Forks and it was not a disappointment. The food was delicious - I had the filet with the black truffel, garlic olive oil - Delish my hubby had the ribeye with crab oscar (huge pieces of crab) yum. Steaks were cooked perfect, great wine, atmosphere and our server Clifton was awesome very attentative. When he brought the check I took and laughed saying I am paying for once since it's his birthday. Well when he heard that he left came back with chocolate cake and 2 delicious signature shots picture of us and a birthday card . A must go in downtown Houston.
