Fine dining downtown within walking distance of most hotels. Attended a business dinner, pre-determined menu with several choices.The service was flawless, coordination of serving everyone was perfect. The steak was done to perfection, wonderful flavor, and so tender. Lobster bisque, garlic mashed potatoes, and asparagus melted complimented the dinner. Save room for the chocolate cake, it will melt in your... More

We have been there many times and it has never disappointed. The last time was for our anniversary dinner and we had the bone in filet. It was great but I would not pay the additional price over a regular filet the next time. The cream corn side was delicious and the green onions and tomatoes they bring to the... More

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

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
