We went here to have dinner before seeing Cirque de Soleil. It was a very busy night with South by Southwest in town. Valet parked our vehicle (highly recommended due to the restaurant being on a busy corner). We were seated promptly, asked for our drink order and told the specials. They employ tge,team serving approach and it worked well.... More

My husband and I had dinner here and found it to be quite romantic, but more importantly -- delicious food! We both had steaks -- I had the filet and he had a NY Strip -- which were both cooked perfectly. We started the meal by sharing a Wedge salad which was big enough for two and had a creamy... More

Great service, best steak ever. This is saying a lot, I enjoy a good steak. But the ribeye was delicious. It was buttery, creamy, yummy goodness. I ordered mine medium with the kings butter and lobster mac n cheese. I highly recommend it for a romantic date night. And for dessert please try the house bread pudding, I generally don't... More

I ordered the foie gras, a wedge salad, and a 12 ounce filet. The foie gras had a heavy, almost candied orange sauce on top that completely obscured the taste of the actual foie gras. Wedge salad was ok, though that is a difficult dish to mess up. It was a little heavy on the dressing for my taste, but... More

We dined at III Forks last Saturday night and the server lost my husband's AMEX card. We waited for approximately 20 minutes while they searched for the card to no avail. Later, they apparently found it on the floor of the bar area where it had been dropped. Although they tried contacting us that evening, we had returned to our... More

I was invited to Austin to attend a business conference and one of the restaurants we were taken to for dinner was the Three Forks. There was a set menu due to the large number of guests being hosted but the service and food was excellent. I had an 8 ounce filet mignon and it melted in my mouth like... More

Had a great dinner here with friends from around the world - lots of steak/meat options - their specialty. Several shared dishes due to large cuts of some dishes. Expensive.

I had a business dinner here, and everything was wonderful. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable about the menu. We also had a few in our party with food allergies that were readily accommodated. The steak was delicious. The sides are shareable, and I highly recommend the spinach!

Perfectly cooked food and attentive waiters made our dining experience very pleasant. The room lacked windows but made up for it by showcasing celebrities from Texas.

Tremendous steaks! Seating available in quieter rooms or around bar and sports on TV. Service was superb. We parked once, had dinner then walked to concert at Austin City Limits. Perfect.
