III Forks - Austin Ratings and Reviews
We were seated in the back room beside a very noisy table of about 37. We were hoping for a late intimate quiet Valentine’s dinner but that wasn’t the case (2/16). The food & service was mediocre.
The atmosphere was so romantic and great for Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking for a nice restaurant for you, and your significant other this is the place to go.
Everything was perfectly prepared, fresh, and delicious. The service was to notch, down to earth yet professional and friendly.
Terrible service, the food was priced higher than it's value. Waitstaff rude and condescending. Even hostess and valets were rude. Disappointment after disappointment. Perry's is an altogether superior experience.
A steakhouse is a steakhouse is a steakhouse, no one is noteworthy. But III Forks proved me wrong. Delicious food with great, friendly and peraonable service. Even with the Valentines's rush, our server took the time to make sure we were pleased.
Very posh and upscale restaurant with a "Dallas Country Club " feel. The waiters are professionals within their discipline and are extremely well -versed in the details of the dining and drink offerings. The food is high quality and fresh. It's expensive but elite usually is.
It was Valentines Day. Reservation was made but they did not seat us till 30 minutes later. The bar was ridiculous as far as ordering drinks, so unorganized and total chaos. Very difficult to order a drink. Just ignored for the most part. A young manager with red tie asked if he could help us get anything and we said we are trying to order drinks and he said, ask the bartender, that was laughable. That is what we were attempting to do but thought why ask and then be rude. I would never go back on a holiday. Not a good service experience even though the food was good. Usually, when you pay the price to dine in a very nice and expensive restaurant you get treated better.
Great food! Great service. It’s pricey but soooo worth it!!
Steak was outstanding, salad superb, sides and deserts only average
The food was good, but not worth the cost. I’ve had much better steaks for less.
I had one of the worse martinis I have ever had - Tito Handmade Martini. The drink was made with hand pressed olive juice - it was at least 80% olive juice which was so over powering I could not finish the drink.
Looking for a great steak? This is the place! You just can't get a better steak hardly anywhere!
Used to be a much better value when the sides were included with the meal - now they are apparently a la carte -
On this visit, we got our steaks and had to wait awhile before they even brought the sides -
Service otherwise was great!
The food was just ok, but we expected excellence for the price. The steaks were cooked right, but the Brussels sprouts were way underdone, even though they were roasted and then fried. The rest of the meal was, again, just ok. The service was good, but nothing special. The best part was not having to re-park after a show at the ACL theatre.
Food was amazing! Our waiter, Charles, could not have been more accommodating and pleasant. Definitely will be going back
Everything was incredible, food, service, atmosphere, and location. Will definitely go back.
excellent food and service. my wife and i had an excellent pre-valentines dinner. all the food was delicious. great times, great drinks, great food
Great dinning experience . We ordered the wedge salad to start , surf and turf and the filet mignon with the bone. We got the chocolate cake for dessert. Everything was delicious and service was exceptional.
The food was great. Our waiter was nice but forgot our lobster and bread.
Wine is overpriced and the wine sommelier was rude. This was the second
time we have experienced rude staff at this establishment.
Excellent meal, attentive and helpful service, pleasant ambience. Perfect for special occasion dinner.
Absolutely the best steakhouse in Austin! Our server - Mickey - was very attentive and responsive. My wife had the veggie ravioli while I had the ribeye. Both meals were remarkable! Steak was perfectly prepared. Side dishes are huge! Dessert is a must! Entire staff was there to make sure our dinner was enjoyable. Well done!
VERY NICE AND ATTENTIVE STAFF,AMBIANCE WAS GOOD,FOOD WAS TERRIFIC,
A LITTLE PRICEY BUT YA GET WHAT YOUR PAYING FOR,I ASK FOR A ROSE FOR MY WIFE FOR OUR ANNIVERSARY AND EVERYONE WISHED US A HAPPY ANNIVERSARY AND THE ROSE CAME TO THE TABLE SHORTLY AFTER BEING SEATED
The service was great and the food was delicious! Would recommend the Ahi Tuna appetizer and the Red Fish was amazing!
Food was delicious!!! We will most definitely return!
There was live jazz which we weren’t expecting. Very nice. The service was impeccable and the food delicious
The food was outstanding! the service was perfect, we were in a little room that help 8 and couldn't have been a better atmosphere, not much noise, just a great dinner with business partners. thanks for making our experience so enjoyable and impressionable!
Excellent food, service and wine list. Steaks were perfectly prepared and great cuts of meat. Extensive wine list and great recommendations by our server.
Fantastic food!! Even better service!
First time here and we absolutely loved all of the food we ordered! The fillet was delicious as were the sides! I had the bread pudding for dessert and I thought it was very good. We will definitely return!!
It was a great experience from the service to the food, it was excellent.
Great experience for a special birthday celebration. Live music was phenomenal, food, service and wine outstanding.
The food was fresh and delicious! I couldn’t have cooked anything better myself. Feels like a home away from home.
Looking forward to the next meal there.
Great spot for a special night or date - very mellow ambiance and great food and wine selection
The food and the service were outstanding. My wife and I have been there two times and each has been great. This last time was made special by our waiter Thomas.
Looking forward to the next time.

While my steak was okay, I expected much better (8 oz. filet) than what I had. The side portions were small but good. Service was very good and atmosphere was excellent.
What really makes this restaurant a cut above the other steak houses are in Austin is the live music. The group they have is wonderful.
Wonderful overall experience.. food .. service .. music was the cherry on top of a wonderful evening !
III Forks always a classy, upscale experience - good good, excellent service and beautiful ambiance!
We had outstanding service, delicious perfectly prepared food and ideal ambiance. We will absolutely be back.
Not my first time at this establishment. As always the food and service were exceptional. However, the wife sent the lobster bisque back. Steaks are superb and the wine list is fantastic. Every employee including management takes responsibility for your dining pleasurer.
Front door valet parking is $10.00
Service was great! We always enjoy conning to III Forks when we can. It was a great ending for my husband's birthday. Our server Alan was fantastic!
