I ate here with some business colleagues and everything was great. I had salmon and some great microbrew. Others at the table had ribs, rainbow trout and mushroom ravioli, all got good reviews. They specialize in using local ingredients and I was evident as the quality was great. Service was good but couldn't answer some questions, all in all, great... More

We've eaten here three times and its been good consistently. The last time we converged during brunch on Saturday market day with a big group including small children. They were very easy going about accommodating our needs. The deep fried olive in the bloody mary was really good. The cinnamon rolls and onion rings were great. I'd go again in... More

Came with my two boys for lunch. Very good service. My ravioli with wild mushrooms were excellent. My sons had simple burger and Mac and cheese. Both were happy. The portions are not too big but definitely good size. You really do not want any bigger. Nice place. Recommended

The appetizer roasted artichoke with black sea salt mayo was divine. I ordered the Idaho Trout and it was delicious - a generous portion, perfectly prepared. The bed of kale was good too. I ordered maple candy bacon on the side, and it was also delicious. My wife's 7-oz filet arrived rare though she'd ordered medium. On their reheat of... More

Sitting in the outside patio on a sunny afternoon is a very pleasant experience at this downtown location. The service was excellent, food above average. I would visit here again.

My friend and I went to the Fork after enjoying the wonderful Farmer's Market in Boise. The restaurant has a fun atmosphere--very laid back and cordial. We shared one of their signature sandwiches--the BAM (bacon, avocado, and mozzarella)--and you can't go wrong there! Our server recommended the chilled cantaloupe soup with crumbled bacon. It was delicious! This is a fun... More

Stopped in for a late lunch (2pm) on a Sunday. Husband ordered the Bam Sammy (bacon, avocado, and mozzarella grilled sandwich) and I ordered the BCS (Boise chopped salad). We split it half and half. Absolutely amazing! Both items were unique and delicious. The bacon was maple and had a undertone of spicy pepper, really good. The salad had pearl... More
