I don't know what their secret is but that was an amazing burger! I wish I could get their secret recipe.

Never had a bad meal. Everything has a twist and is quite tasty. Try the adult version of a grilled cheese, delicious! I do wish they had a happy hour.

Fork has some very interesting dishes to try. My daughter had the grilled cheese and tomato soup appetizer for dinner and loved it. Everyone in our group had a wonderful dinner. The service was very good as well. It is a little loud in the restaurant probably because of the very tall ceilings, my father-in-law had a hard time hearing... More

I love suggesting this place to eat. They focus on using food locally and giving the customers their all. The food is always delicious. The dishes have eye appeal. It's a fun atmosphere and never seems too loud.

I like the Fork, it has a certain relaxing feel to it, but the service has never been exemplary. Not 'bad' service but I have never left feeling that they were really that into service... if that makes sense. The food is pretty good, but when I want to go out, I rarely think of the Fork. It just doesn't... More

We are trying different restaurants while in the Boise area. Last night, based on recommendations we went to the Fork in downtown Boise. Upon walking in to the restaurant we were pleasantly surprised it use to be an old bank. The restaurant looked inviting. Tables were a litte close together. We were seated at one of those horrible half tables... More

Specializing in the farm to table idea. This is a great, comfortable restaurant both inside and out. Located in the heart of the city, you can see everything and everyone moving around you. Friendly staff and large eating areas. Worth a try!

My wife and I have tried Fork a few times. The first couple of times we were impressed by their food and service. However, the last two times we were there we took visiting guests and the service was slow, the steaks were over-cooked and over-salted and served cold. Granted, we were there on weekends, but this is probably one... More

Fork is located in a great old building in downtown Boise. Lots of huge windows, high ceilings, beautiful architecture. The best Bloody Mary Bar, great food, great service in a very pleasant atmosphere. We have had many family gatherings here! One of my favorites!
