    III Forks treated us like VIPs! Pedro, our server, was superb in all aspects. Managers Ernest and Eric ensured our dining experience was top notch. Needless to say, the food was perfection including our off the menu items. We appreciated the wine samplings, as well. Our birthday celebration was truly a memorable experience!

    Service was amazing but the food felt like you were eating at tx roadhouse. For a 300 tab we expected more. We've gone to Perry's a couple of times ate delicious and drank more for $100 less than our tab.

    Very enjoyable cocktails and appetizers. My filet, ordered medium rare, was cooked almost to medium and not evenly cooked. Rather than sending back, I ate it as to not delay my dining companions from their meals. Flavor of filet was very nice. Others said their meals were good. Everyone enjoyed several shared desserts

    From the beginning of the evening till closing the place down, it was an absolutely amazing experience. Our server Jeff was very attentive and very knowledgeable about the cuisine how is prepared and what to expect throughout the evening. He was very attentive to my son who was celebrating his 25th birthday with us. The staff in general is very knowledgeable about the art of Mixology and food and wine pairings. We were absolutely treated with the utmost respect and appreciation. I will definitely be coming back again. I have to admit some of the entrees were a bit pricey but the experience and care given to my party truly made up for any discouragement in pricing. Overall a wonderful experience and I'll be coming back soon.

    My fiance and I have been enjoying special occasions at III Forks for eight years. Besides being hands-down the best steak in Austin, the ambiance and service are bar none. You are transported into a premium, authentically Texan environment when you step through the double doors. The bar and weight staff are highly knowledgeable, attentive, and professional. Valet parking is a breeze, and the downtown location lends itself well to an after-dinner night cap. We hope to continue enjoying III Forks for many years.

    This is your typical overpriced steakhouse tailored to the business traveler. Of course, we knew that going in so no surprises. The rib eye was outstanding and cooked to perfection. The portions are huge. Suggest sharing the steak. We ordered onion rings as an appetizer and it could feed a family of six. Service was first rate and very attentive. If you are entertaining on a corporate budget, a great place.

    Went there last weekend for my birthday celebration with my wife and friends. The team did a great job making the event special. Everyone thought their food was fantastic. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars was my peppercorn ribeye steak was over cooked but they had a new one out in less than 10 min. Service was top notch.

    Overall a wonderful meal experience. Our waitress (Gina, I believe) was extremely knowledgeable about the menu as well as off-menu items. The seafood tower was incredible, we also enjoyed the wedge salad. The lobster Mac n cheese was not to our taste, and Gina said there were mixed reviews from many customers. For me, it had a weird spice and quite frankly not enough cheese for Mac n cheese. I would go here again!

    We had Kurtis as our server, a true class act. It was my wife's Birthday and he made it very special. The food was the best in Texas, Chef Eric is amazing, a true professional, Ernest is THE BEST MANAGER IN THE WORLD. You see I am the world's best former waiter and I can spot talent a mile away. Love ya Ernest!!! The manager Jeff was super cool. The sommelier on duty was very informative, we had the 10,000 bottle of Screaming Eagle (just kidding, we drank chardonnay, lol.) Kurtis had roses on the table for my wife, truly one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. As a Cannabis Entrepreneur I can truly say the Steaks well worth the price!!! 3 Forks Austin is the official restaurant for Big Dan and family... This place is THE BEST!!!! #googlebigdanaustintexas
