Fork Ratings and Reviews

Fork is a modern restaurant located in an old bank building in downtown Boise. It has a sister Italian restaurant next door that shares the kitchen. Great steak! Filet and brisket were tender and juicy and cooked just right. Fired asparagus appetizer was lightly battered and fresh. All or most ingredients are locally sourced. Loud but fun. Service at start was poor... 20 minutes sitting at table before anyone came over... desp ite other servers constantly passing by... no teamwork here!

Great food and great atmosphere. Love the Loyal to Local theme. Good to have reservations even during the week as usually always busy. Enjoy the seasonal favorite cocktails. Bar staff especially friendly . Great service.

Our lunch was just okay. Nothing special...we ordered the tomato soup (tasty!), handmade chips (over cooked), and the ham/cheese grilled sandwich. the ham tasted horrible... the melted cheese was very sparce.. we also ordered some cocktails... mojito and the pear grapefruit fizz... both were just okay. We were visiting from California, so maybe we have a higher standard for local farm to table food? On the positive side, the atmosphere and bar area were great! Looks like a good place to take a date or meet friends for a bite.

A bit disappointed overall. Limited menu and not many healthy type options. I did have a salad that was pretty good and it was huge. The short ribs were good and also a large serving. Some decent wines on the list. Maybe for more casual dining, this is a good place..

We've been to Fork before, so we knew what we were in for. The food was good, but for some reason the service was awful this time. It took 20 mins to get the drink menu and then 15 mins for the drinks to come. A re-order was needed because the server didn't know that they were out of one of the drinks (and we were surprised at the new glassware -- obviously a switch from16oz to 12oz, probably to save money?) Our food came a few minutes after the appetizer, but with no silverware. Several requests for the bill. We set aside 90 mins for the meal (with babysitter,) but found that we were scrambling to get the bill at the end and get home. Needless to say we aren't in a mad rush to go back.

I was pleased that Fork gave us a great table as requested via Open Table reservation. The service was very nice and not over bearing. The food was very good. We felt the price for the meal was very acceptable, we have paid much more in similar restaurants so that was very nice. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and it also seems suitable for families with well behaved children.

This is the second time we've dined at fork. We went there for brunch. It was ok but not spectacular. It was a fun concept to customize your own Bloody Mary. Was REALLY disappointed in the quiche. Very salty and small portion compared to the salad that was served alongside. Nothing but lettuce and a lot of vinegar. Definitely not a dish I'll order again. The Northwest scramble was really good and I would order again.

Fabulous evening. Our only complaint was that the table seemed too big--we felt farther apart than most restaurant tables. We switched and sat next to each other instead of across to feel more connected and improve conversation.

I went with my mom who was visiting from out of town. We both enjoyed our cocktails and appetizers. I ordered the prime rib special and my mom the filet. I ordered the prime rib medium rare. When it showed up with was between medium and medium well. I politely told the waitor because it was expensive and I expected it to be cooked correctly. He said "well at this time of night you can't really get medium rare", to which I said why didn't you tell me that when I ordered?? I certainly would have ordered something else. Since he wasn't honest when I ordered I felt like it ruined the evening. So I sent it back and ordered something else. It took forever my mom had finished her meal while we were waiting for mine. I would come back for ambience cocktails and apps but nothing else.

Great brunch. Had the vanilla custard french toast and a side of maple bacon. Both were delicious. Our server was courteous, friendly, and competent. The only thing I didn't care for was the huckleberry bellini (not very much like a bellini and mostly tasted like champagne not huckleberry), but other than that our entire party was very satisfied with our experience.

Had a late breakfast/lunch on a busy Saturday during one of their ongoing street festivals. When we checked in for our reservation they didn't take our name and OpenTable thought we were a no show. Servers were very pleasant, and the coffee was excellent (no espresso machine).
Food was excellent and arrived timely and hot. Park in the parking structure right across the street, hard to find street parking.

Unfortunately the last 2 times I have dined here our server forgot to put in our food orders and service was REALLY slow as we waited over 20 minutes to get a drink and over an hour to get our meal. If I didn't like the food I wouldn't ever go back.

Table next to us came in well after us an was served before us. We had no apps, and even asked ahead of time if food would be out rather soon based on our choices. We were told yes. We waited much longer than that table

A fun place with a vibe. Menu limited. Wife ordered the filet mignon that was RAW; followed by a second one equally raw delivered by the manager. How does that happen? Got an apology but that was it......will think twice before going again.

Food was way too salty; I love salt , this was over the top. Couldn't taste the food. Not Just one dish; all dishes(minus the asparagus fries; those could use salt)My waiter called me "Hun" mutiple times..my streak requested med well came out med rare; asked to cook a bit longer came back Balck and grey. Had a bottle of wine; poured first class only, waiter Checked on us and never poured again with empty glasses and he wasn't "slammed" 3rd time with simular experience Never again.

Went for a mid week lunch. Apparently the health department was there slowing down the kitchen while doing a routine inspection. Appreciated our server being concerned about the wait time and his positive attitude. Appetizer ended up getting comped which was nice and appropriate given the time. Food was great and liked our server. We'll be back.

Called ahead and requested "special" dessert for an occasion... Staff handled request with ease. Really great service for a party of 5. Menu limited to bar eats sort of - but you can still get a decent steak here. Great drinks, full bar, fun atmosphere.

Made reservation for 1pm because that was first time available although only 2/3 rds full when we arrived 3 minutes early. Our party of 3 each ordered breakfast and coffee. One cup was returned (because there was lipstick) on the edge. Had French toast as appetizer split 3 ways (perfect and It would have been too much otherwise). Our three breakfast items arrived 47 minutes after being ordered (so the first thing I did was take a bite and found it to be barely warm (while being served on a hot plate) I reluctantly finished it and my wife asked if I would like to try hers. I took a bite 17 minutes after mine was served and it was the same temperature that mine was when served earlier. One can concluded that mine had be cooked approximately the same amount of time when I received it. (Problems in the kitchen???)
The Fork has always been the standard for us. One would think that for Sunday Brunch the first stringers would be on the field. Yes, we will try it again. Recommend it, probably with qualifications.
We eat out almost daily and don't mind paying top dollar for good quality and service. This was not to be expected from the Fork.
Waitperson was barely a five/ten and laughed off the lipstick on the side of the cup. At least she was going through the motion of trying to hold on to a job. If she were in training, Sunday brunch is not the time/place. If not, then the Fork needs to revise its training process, fire her or both.
Even though we were the first people sea ...
Even though we were the first people seated for Brunch at 9:30 AM, we did not get our food for 45 minutes. When we got our food, my chicken was very over cooked & dry and my friend's dish was barely room temperature . I had eaten their chicken and waffles before and it was incredibly delicious! I went back specifically for chicken and waffles. It was very disappointing. I sent my first plate back and they did send out a new chicken and waffles. I was charged full price. Which was fine, but usually a restaurant will do their best to accommodate a kitchen error and for sending out inedible food. I was disappointed the server was actually OK with bringing the meal out, as she did agree that the chicken look burnt from just looking at it.
