We had my husband's birthday dinner at III Forks last night. I made reservations on Open Table and asked for a quiet table so we could have intimate conversation. When we arrived, a hostess took us immediately to our table - a comfortable booth looking out onto the dining room. Just before dinner, a hostess came and asked if we'd like our picture taken, we said yes and she later brought a print of the photo back to our table. A lovely gesture to remember a special night! Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. The wine list is a nice one with good selection of mid-price bottles. I had the small filet mignon (medium well) and my husband had the prime rib (medium rare) and both of us were pleased. However, I have to quibble with the salads and sides. I ordered the III Forks salad and the waiter said the dressing was a maple-raspberry viniagrette. However, the dressing was so cloyingly sweet that I couldn't eat the salad and had to send it back. The manager graciously brought out a new, undressed salad for me and both a viniagrette dressing as well as balsamic and olive oil. I chose the latter and the salad was fine. My husband enjoyed his Caesar salad, but was disappointed when they did not have the traditional anchovies. For dinner sides, we chose the spinach and asparagus. The spinach was delicious - fresh, hot and not too garlicky. However the asparagus came out on a dish that was covered with sliced almonds thrown on top. The almonds should have been toasted or sauteed, weren't - and didn't add anything. The dessert choices are all very heavy - cake, cheesecake, creme brulee. It would be nice if III Forks offered lighter choices such as fresh fruit, sorbet or gelato. Dinner for two with drinks, wine and dessert was around $200. I would definitely recommend III Forks for a special occasion but wish the corporate chef would re-think his/her selections for salads, sides and dessert. One last thing - there was a VERY large group across the dining room that was rudely noisy. We were thankful that we had a booth and were sitting next to one another so we could converse.
