Make sure you have a reservation or you likely won't get in. We eat here at least once a month, maybe more. The kids love the grilled cheese fondu, the parents love everything else. If you aren't ordering the asparagus fries, you're missing out!

Had a late lunch here with some family. Place was still quite busy, considering we didn't eat until after 2 pm. Service was very good and friendly. There were a number of things I wanted to order off the drink and food menus. Tried a new bourbon cocktail and enjoyed it very much. Our food was excellent - salmon, sandwich,... More

Ambiance Fork is very well appointed and spacious, you will not feel cramped at your table or booth. However, it's an old bank building, with lots and lots of hard surfaces. This means it can get quite loud, a Friday or Saturday evening and you may be straining to hear your dinner companions. Staff Friendly and efficient. Never had a... More

I think Fork serves a prime rib "special" late in the week. My wife talked me into trying it. I like good prime rib and have had it at numerous restaurants. Fork's version was like your worst nightmare. So fatty and chewy that I could only eat 10 or so percent of the meat. The rest I had to "discretely"... More

Thankfully we had reservations! What a nice place. Excellent meal. Food all prepared impeccably and presented very well. The wine list was excellent with several of the wines available by the glass. Parking STINKS. Guess I'm not used to city life. Parking in a multi level building was not attractive to me. Parking was $5 for less than 2 hours... More

We very much enjoyed our dinner at the Fork. The atmosphere is alive and vibrant. The food is excellent and the service is first rate. The people who work there obviously enjoy their job and take pride in providing excellent service and food.

Fork is one of our favorite restaurants in Boise. We sit at the bar to watch sports, meet others, and dine. They have a great selection of wines by the glass and beers on tap. Our favorite meal is the Chicken Salad and the artichoke appetizer. It is a lively place and fun to meet friends there. I would highly... More

Fork is a regular choice for me and my family whether for brunch, lunch, dinner, or just appetizers and a drink. We entertain out of town guests, business associates, or just each other. The menu is versatile with great regular items. And the specials are always well thought out as a complement to the regular menu. There's plenty of garage... More
