This was a great place for dining with friends. We had the fried asparagus appetizer - delicious! It was a little difficult to hear or understand the masked wait staff and the drinks were a little weak. The burger and fries were delish and we...had no room for dessert. Fun dining option and great location!More

We had just one night in Boise and chose Fork for dinner based on the menu posted outside. It was very atmospheric sitting on the patio out front on 8th street on one of the nights when it’s pedestrianised. The food was superb and the...service excellent.More

Stopped here for dinner and wasn’t disappointed. Nice bar menu with local craft beers on tap. The grownup ham and cheese was tasty. The tomato bisque was amazing. The tacos were also great. Surprisingly good prices for good portions. Friendly service. Family friendly away from...the bar. I’d go back.More

Waitress made my son get on the floor to fix the tipping table rather than have staff do it. Very mechanical and uncaring way of speaking. Flies everywhere. Food was so so. Will never come here again.More

I took a business associate after a great first experience, well I was embarrassed to say the least, our server was useless, he forgot about my starter, served my steak still mooing so it got sent back to to be cooked more, I finished my...steak had still not received my starter, then he walked over with it an hour later, it was sent back yo the kitchen and taken off the bill. Zero tip, will likely return but only if I cannot get in anywhere elseMore

Excellent food. Asparagus fries and Manila clams were delicious. Bread cake a heart attack waiting to happen, but also delicious. Good beer menu. Definitely one of best restaurants in Boise, w ample outdoor seating if you’re not interested in getting or spreading Covid. Highly recommended.

Delicious food, friendly prompt service, good atmosphere! I had the half chicken, and my husband had the trout. Both were big portions, excellently prepared, with delicious sides. My husband's beer was great. We sat at the bar so we wouldn't have to wait for a...table. Bar tenders were attentive and friendly.More

I order for delivery and it was still phenomenal. The show stoppers were the asparagus fries and the butter cake. The fact that asparagus fries are not on every bar menu is a shame. They were so delicious and the seasoning in the dread was...perfect. The warm butter cake was sticky and creamy with an awesome berry sauce. I order the grilled cheese for my entree which was great but a little too much ham. The tomato soup was also good but a little heavy of the sherry. Excellent meal.More

They do play music and generally there's a lot of people dining. So, it tends to be somewhat crowded. It's hard to get a reservation and walk inns either leave or are forced to sit at the bar... So - I'd say "yes" it's... More
