We learned out lesson the first night about making reservations, and so we made reservations at Fork based on all of the information that we could find online about great places for dinner. Plenty of choices, wonderful architecture and atmosphere in the restaurant. Obviously a very popular place for dinner; I definitely recommend making reservations to ensure yourself a table.... More

Fork has a cool vibe and great food. Service is always spot on and the location is close to the vibrant downtown scene. Lunch or dinner, you won't be disappointed.

Downtown at the corner of West Idaho Street and North 8th Street, and just three blocks southwest of the State Capitol building, the Fork restaurant is located in the cavernous, spacious, well-lit lobby of a former historic regional bank building. The popular Fork restaurant offers western American cuisine, while next door, its sister restaurant, Alavita, offers fine dining with a... More

This was our second visit. We went once before just for dessert, but since we had family in town, we went for dinner. The food, service, and experience were all very good. The house salad dressing is scrumptious (especially if you're a garlic fan) and pairs perfectly with the Rosemary-Parmesan Fries. Yum! We had steak and the crispy chicken salad.... More

We arrived in town on a Saturday night while on a road trip. I called at the last minute and Fork was booked up for the evening, but they said to arrive before 6 p.m. for a seat at the full-serve bar. The atmosphere is warm, service is friendly, food is delicious. The grilled artichoke comes with a fabulous aioli... More

As you would expect from a sit-down restaurant in downtown Boise, you are going to pay a little extra, but this place is worth it! Great food, great service, and the atmosphere is great! I had a simple cheeseburger and it was awesome! The presentation of the food was excellent! Highly recommend!

Went for a late Friday dinner as we did not have reservations. The place was full so we Sat at the bar, which was actually really nice. Bartender Liz made some great Beefeater martinis. Starting by splitting the Four Seasons salad, which made a great appetizer. The braised short ribs and filet were unusually good and I would definitely get... More

I made a reservation for my family of 4 and we ended up being hungry early so we stopped in hoping they could adjust our reservation and take us early. Thankfully they were able to accommodate. Great cocktail menu with fresh twists on old favorites like the Tahitian Mojito. Service was great. We received our food quickly. Server was friendly... More
