    Hostess (two women) were not as friendly or accommodating as I thought a restaurant at this status would be… especially after placing our request on the app and them knowing our request for a table NOT in the middle of a room. So we ate in the bar. Great :-( After clear communication, stead was cooked wrong. Then 25% through our mean, we realized the switched the plates so me and my guest switch plates. Classy. :-( Over all, a free glass of wine does make up or excuse it. Honestly, let me know pay the full price and give me what I asked for. That’s my concept going to a restaurant. Is that old school???

    Made 5pm reservation for thanksgiving and they were already out of turkey. Our waitress was great - however, I felt the manager should have comped us a cocktail or appetizer given the situation. I didn’t feel like they made any effort to truly make up for the situation and it’s not like we could go somewhere else at that point. I’ve had great experiences here before - just disappointed in thanksgiving.

    The positive: The steak and lobster and service was excellent, and they were open for Thanksgiving. The negative: The Shrimp Cocktail Appetizer for $24. The four (small) shrimp served flat on a plate with cocktail sauce dropped on each one was underwhelming.

    We made reservations at III Forks so we could host a business dinner for people our business development team wanted to connect with at a conference. We reserved a table for 12, and wound up with 10 confirmed, but only four of us actually attended. The team at III Forks was great at moving us to a four-top that someone else had canceled, so they were able to use the extra tables for other diners. We had a great dinner, and the staff and management were very attentive. The III Forks salad and filet were so good, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I would definitely love to eat there again if and when I return to Austin.

    The food was disappointing. The lobster Mac didn’t have any lobster, it was mostly all Mac. The server took it about herself to start serving my lobster Mac to the other people on the table without asking if I was planning to share. The seafood tower was not fresh.
