This amazing restaurant in downtown Austin has become our annual anniversary dinner. Superb service, atmosphere and incredible food. Rachael and Ernest attention to detail made our 41st special. Bone-in filet that literally melts in your mouth, fried lobster app, lobster bisque and seasonal favorite Jasmine martini has us already planning next visit to bring friends. Only issue is always trying... More

We have eaten here 3 times. 2011 and twice this year (2016). Outstanding food, outstanding service. Our last occasion was our 51st anniversary celebration, Nov. 17, 2016. Kelsey was our server on the last two occasions. She is fantastic! Her knowledge of the food, her personal and caring approach, her enthusiasm, her helpfulness, her personality-- yes, I could go on... More

We had our anniversary dinner at III Forks & it was absolutely fantastic! Our concierge at the Intercontinental Stephen F Austin Hotel, Elena, made reservations for us. My only restaurant requirement was that they have a porterhouse steak, the only steak my husband likes. The Executive Chef, Adrian C., graciously agreed to get it & make it for my husband... More

We celebrated a special birthday at III Forks. We had not been here in a few years and it did not disappoint. To start, we had Chicken Fried Lobster, a nod to all things Texas, and it was so yummy. The Redfish was great as were the Shrimp and Pasta and the Tenderloin Salad. The service was perfect. The only... More

My wife and I were staying at the W Hotel and 111 Forks is one block across Lavaca. Our meal was excellent, I have never had any meal that topped this one. It is a old line dark wood atmosphere. They also have a separate bar and live music. You can't go wrong.

We had 8:00 pm reservations for a combination of my birthday and our 1st wedding anniversary dinner. We got there a little early to have a drink at the bar before dinner. We were ready to eat before 8:00 pm, but it was not a problem seating us early, even on a Saturday night. The staff was very attentive and... More

A restaurant can be judged by how well they handle group dinners. IIIF did a superb job! Prix fixe menu. The house salad, filet mignon, mashed potatoes, and chocolate cake were all excellent! All the steaks were tender and cooked to perfection. On top of that, the meals were all served together and within a very reasonable amount of time.... More

We were staying at the W Hotel and I was looking for a restaurant close to the hotel. III Forks was within walking distance. The evening started with the most delightful waiter - Alan. We were served perfect martinis. The III Forks salad was our first course. It was a perfect combination of fresh greens, toasted pecans and Granny Smith... More

My party of 8 was seated immediately for our 7pm reservation. The seating was perfect and comfortable and the room volume was moderate so having a conversation took no effort. The wait staff was wonderful. For example, when one of our guests requested a particular whiskey that was not on the menu, she went back to the bar staff and... More
