Yummy food with good portions! Menu offers choices for everyone. The chicken I added to my salad was fresh rotisserie style. Kids meals are an excellent value. My kids enjoyed the generous portion of local ice cream that was included with their meal! . A must for sure.

I have eaten at a lot of places in Boise and have come to conclusion that for upscale dining in Boise this is the place. Food, service, downtown location, and atmosphere all blend into a nice meal out. The prices and meal are upscale; but the dress is casual with both shorts, and jacket/ties. Fork has outside (with misters &... More

Great service, fresh ingredients and outdoor seating. We got breakfast here and had some great scrambles and toasts. The staff was quick and friendly. What more can you ask for!

We ate here on our last night in Boise, 4th of July. The staff was friendly and efficient. The food was fantastic. As we had our eye on dessert, we didn't order appetizers but they had a nice selection that sounded yummy. The three of us ordered the BBQ chicken sandwich, the salmon sandwich and the sturgeon special. All the... More

I picked Fork for our fancy family dinner while visiting my son in Boise. Was not disappointed. Lots of different choices. I had a ravioli that was excellent. Great wine list. The waiter was friendly and funny and the atmosphere felt a little more upscale then the average brewpub but not overly so. Loved it...

We were a party of ten, so many items were sampled from a large menu of farm to table possibilities. All salads were reported delicious with creative combinations which were a split-able size. The mussel app was delicious, as was the griddled mac and cheese. The trout over a bed of spinach was perfectly prepared, as were the beef prime... More

Overall a nice experience. The restaurant is very much into the localvore scene, with our waitress being very knowledgable on where most of their offerings came from. The food was very good and prices were reasonable.
