Was in Boise for a conference, Locals recommended Fork. Had Rainbow trout. Slightly upscale restaurant but they also have a bar scene. Somewhat noisy but we got a table in a less noisy area. Food was good

We went on a Tuesday night because they serve chicken waffles on Tuesday night only. They were delicious! Not only was the chicken perfectly cooked, but it was a large portion of chicken, and the waffle and syrup were delicious.

The food is absolutely delicious! The wait staff is professional, helpful, and friendly. Every Wednesday they serve flapjacks for $1 per pancake. Yummy! What a deal!

Fork has an extensive menu of food from salads, hamburgers, and sandwiches at a reasonable price. Service has always been good- and the menu seems to change seasonally.

We had great nachos and wonderful salads. All the ingredients were very fresh and presented creatively. Loved it. Also, the building started life as a bank in 1913, so it's fun to look at the room details.
