Difficult menu to select just one dish. Portions are large and if you go for the cinammon roll, know that it's big enough for 4 people!

Drinks are good. Slow service,all about me Matthew server seemed not to care about our wait for drinks. So fully Loud. Okay tomato soup, good fried asparagus, Mac n cheese. Salmon plate is thick smoked salmon and some weird cheese. Casual setting. Ridiculous wine prices....Really have no idea why this is a highly rated spot.More

The temperature was over 100 at 6pm, so we decided to do take out. Online ordering was easy. Fork is downtown with no dedicated parking, so we were glad to see that metered street parking was free for the first 20 minutes. Our food was...waiting for us, prepared as we ordered, and delicious. There were plenty of folks dining in the shaded outdoors under the misters.More

Busy restaurant with a wait. We had a BAM Sammy, Looked good but the bacon was burnt. The Rosemary-Parmesan Idaho French Fries were a bit soggy. The Asparagus dish had too much Chili in it, you couldn‘t taste the asparagus anymore. The Idaho Rainbow Trout...was good, however. Service a bit slow, but it was a busy evening. All in all ok food, but nothing stood out.More

We stopped in the restaurant to grab a quick drink and quick snack after a long day of travel. Like everywhere in Boise - the people were just great. Bartenders were fun and attentive all while being VERY busy. The salads were great - many...of the dishes were appealing - but if you have one "don't miss" it's the warm butter cake! Good heavens - that was a real treat!More

The food was fine but nothing stood out to me as special, especially considering that this is one of the best-rated restaurants in Boise. We waited over an hour - about 75 min - for food to arrive which wasn't a great experience.

I was here on business and Boise friends recommended we meet at Fork. They love it and I can see why. There were no available reservations on a Friday -popular place. I got there early evening and was able to get outdoor seating on a...beautiful evening. We had tacos, an entree salad and a new pasta dish. All were very good as were the cocktails. Very attentive service. The 8th street area is fantastic for dining. Good job Boise.More

We were able to immediately get seated without a reservation around 630 on a Thursday. Great atmosphere. Great selection of cocktails. We had a salmon board that was perfect and my ravioli was fresh and delicious.

We stumbled across this fabulous restaurant after another place we planned to go was closed. The arugula salad was fantastic. The service was also perfect. Just enough attention to keep us happy but no so much that is was annoying. The prices were reasonable, too,...given the high quality of the food and the very nice atmosphere. We sat outside. The restaurant on the corner of a pedestrian zone and a busy street. I suggest sitting as far away from the street as possible to avoid traffic noise (and pollution). Would definitely eat here again if ever in Boise!More

My chicken grilled club Sammy came with RAW CHICKEN!!!!! … took the first bite and the taste was amazing… took a second bite and chicken was crunchy. Looked at my Sammy and chicken was completely raw from the inside. Straight up raw. (I wanted to...joke about it saying it was still clucking but raw poultry is a serious thing)….. the waiter was quick to take my plate. Probably due to the embarrassment. Manager came out and to give my family free dessert and an apology… for RAW CHICKEN…. I don’t usually care for raw red meat but poultry… Geeze… manager, please buy a simple cooking thermometer for your chefs and have them check the bleeping poultry prior to serving it. Create a cooking procedure to protect your customers from any potential food poisoning. This was the WORST experience I’ve had in Boise while visiting the gorgeous state of Idaho.More

We had 4 people in our party, each had a different cocktail, all were good. We all had different meals as well. In our group we have a DF & GF as well as a garlic allergy. The server was great at making sure we...were able to order something that was safe to eat but also that we were excited about eating. Saw some other items go out to other tables that also looked amazing. It was pretty busy when we arrived but it wasn't too loud. We had reservations but ended up there a little early, we were seated right away which was surprising and nice.More

We started off with Lamb lollipops. They were very good. For entrée my husband and I both had the huli huli chicken. Having been to Hawaii many times we both enjoy huli huli chicken. The chicken at the Fork is not huli huli chicken but...more like teriyaki chicken. It was a large serving as it was a half chicken. Unfortunately the breast meat was very dry. We both left more than half our dinner on the plate. Our server – I think her name was Heather was very good.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
