Great outdoor seating, friendly service, but you won't be blown away. Boise gets too excited about places like this.

They have great food and a great atmosphere. My favorite selection is the Urban Burger. It's one of the best I've had.

Took friends to lunch and could barely hear our conversation. Food was disappointing. This used to be our "go to" place for a business lunch. No more. Food has gone down in quality in just a year.

We've been to Fork many, many times, and it's become our go-to restaurant downtown. The atmosphere is simultaneously classy and relaxed, and the staff is the same. Extremely professional and helpful, without being starchy. Just cool people who seem to genuinely enjoy what they're doing. The food is simply stellar. Most of it is locally sourced (if you're into that),... More

We have eaten here a couple of times. Really enjoyed our meal both times. Can be very busy at dinner time on a Friday/Saturday. Reservations recommended.

We went to fork for brunch, I was really excited about it because the reviews and menu looked really good. Our service wasn't great, I think she forgot about us and it took a long time to get a water, receive a menu, order, receive drinks and food. Overall, the food was okay but it wasn't very clean and the... More
