We recently at at III Forks with a large group, and I think overall everyone had a great experience. I deviated from the norm and ordered the rack of lamb, which was excellent. The server said it was one of his favorite dishes, and it did not disappoint. My husband had a filet special, that I tasted and his meal... More

This is an excellent place for an upscale meal. The décor inside is outstanding, with huge windows showing great views of the surrounding neighborhood. The bar area is also nice. There is also a rooftop, but the weather was too warm to sit outside on the evening we went. The food was delicious, and priced at about what I would... More

Went to III forks the other night for a steak. I was not only blown away by the flavor of the steak, i was blown away by the service as well. I just found the number one steakhouse in Chicago and look forward to returning soon

OK, this is a steakhouse serving prime beef. The steaks range in price from $21 for the flat iron to under $50 for the highest price steak. My husband and I eat out quite a bit - at least once a week. For an upscale place downtown, their prices are excellent. Their salads/appetizers were mostly under $10. You will pay... More

This is an upscale restaurant with a great menu. The service is excellent. Ask for a table by the window to see the city sites! There is also a wonderful outdoor patio on the roof with another great view. It overlooks the park of the River East area away from the hubbub of the city, but close to everything. I... More

Let me start by saying our dining experience was great. The one drawback is the lack of acoustics in this restaurant. If you are looking for quiet...eat on the roof (exceptional space and decor). The sommelier was very attentive to our desire for a particular wine and made recommendations accordingly. The chef made two personal appearances at our table to... More

I went to III Forks to catch up with an old friend over dinner & drinks. We were there on a Wednesday so there was no crowd. Drinks were great, food was great, and the atmosphere was wonderful!

I live in the area and was excited about having a "upscale"steakhouse in my neighborhood. I am however, disappointed in the quality of their steaks. I don't mind having to spend a lot of money for a really great steak, like Capitol Grill, but III Forks is a total disappointment. We tried it three times with the same disappointing results....

Have gone here on multiple occasions for drinks and appetizers. The rooftop bar is one of the best outdoor locations in the city & the ambience is superb. Drinks and appetizers are pricey but what you would expect for the venue. Unfortunately the bar staff has apparently gone through attitude training and seems more like they'd prefer you step right...
