Nice medium-scake restaurant

Nice atmosphere; classy but not formal. Good variety and a nice wine list with variety and reasonable prices. Great local trout.

I met friends here before attending an event at Centurylink Arena. They have a unique menu and wonderful atmosphere. The food was good and reasonably priced. I will definitely go again!!

Fork is in my top 5 restaurants in Boise. We've ate there countless times for dinner and the food is always fabulous and the service is great and friendly. I have a gluten allergy and there are many items on the menu that are safe for me and the staff is very helpful in ensuring that my food is safe.... More

We were there on a saturday evening and it was really crowded inside, so be sure to make a reservation if you plan to eat there on a weekend. We were lucky - since it was dark and overcast with a chance of rain we instantly got a table outside. Pretty sure with more promising weather that would've been different.... More

Place was recommended to us, wouldn't bother going back. Way to noisy couldn't even hear the person next to me. Food was ok, over priced, service slow.

The Fork is a popular place. I was by myself and didn't want to wait for a table so I sat and ate at the bar. I wasn't famished so I ordered the creole shrimp and grits appetizer. The creole sauce made the dish. Lots of good sized shrimp also. Really enjoyed the dish. Friendly bartenders too. If you like... More

Everything I heard about the Fork had been really positive and that it was a semi-upscale restaurant. My family and I walked in and I immediatetly felt like I was in a bar. It was so noisy that we had to keep asking the waitress to repeat everything as we couldn't hear what she was saying. We all ordered something... More

We went there for a birthday dinner with some friends (party of 8). Service started off great but dwindled quickly after we got our drinks and before we ordered. After finding a hostess and asking her to flag our waiter we finally ordered. Then there was another very long, extended wait to get our meals. Meals were mediocre. Quality for... More
