Dallas >3 Forks
Lost in the steakhouse mix. I was going to give this place a decent review but after reading some of these other more recent reviews I realized things might have changed.... use to be a nice date place or place to have a great steak and drinks with friends (some live music) but I have not been in several years.... feces on the TP? ICK!!!!!! There are puh-lenty of other great steak places in the metroplex or right close by like Del Frisco's, Sullivan's, Lawry's... and. so on... try if you really feel compelled!
I took my wife and family to 3 forks a party of 12. The waiter was great but the time between ordering and getting our meal was far too long. The meal itself was not that good but the waiter was very apologetic about the length of time getting our meal and comp our dessert.
I spent about $700 that night but will not return.
Actual Feces on the Toilet Paper. Went for New Years with my fiancee and kid. The seafood medley appetizer was skimp and unimaginative. Had to use the restroom before main course, bathroom looked like a McDonalds bathroom. There was actual poop stains on the roll of toilet paper. Went back to eat, food was half way decent, but not $175 worth for 2 people. Truluck's, Del Friscos, much better and cheaper. Waiter was rude, came up out of the blue and said "Ok what are you guys thinking about" Wait staff seemed lost and disinterested. Will not be going back.
Avoid it at all (the highest) costs..
We, a party of 4, attempted dinner on a Saturday night. The wine list is nearly entirely Californian wines which are marked up to the tune of 500-800% (normal restaurant markup is closer to 300%) - which means a $10 bottle of wine is costing you $80 here. If you're thinking cocktail - a martini is likely to cost $40.00!
The food: wedge salad is not a salad at all but rather a cup of salad dressing dumped on the lettuce wedge. The sides are nothing creative and include creamed spinach, creamed corn, etc. They also double up the "cream" as the universal topping on all the seafood dished. The steaks were not prepared at the correct temperature and ended up tasting dry and leathery.
The service: the waiter's desire to "upsell" was egregious. If you order Jack Daniels, he tries to sell you Makers and if you order fish, he tries to sell you lobster. If by chance you don't go with his recommendation, here come the "funny looks" and "sotto voce" comments all night long.
All in all, the restaurant has little to offer. Value, flavor, and service are entirely missing and leaves us feeling like we're left holding a three pronged fork.
Great Place for a Great Dinner. I went with a group of girl friends, which can sometimes mean lackluster service from the waiter, but not here. He helped us pick the perfect bottle of wine to complement our meal (and not break the bank) and really helped to make our experience memorable. The fact that you don't have to pay extra for sides meant we all got to enjoy an after dinner drink. Gotta love Dolce!
Incredible experience. Impeccable service, phenomenal food, wonderful serving size, warm and hospitable. A must-do experience.
III Forks is the place to go!!. I have been to III Forks on a number of special occasions and I have YET to encounter a bad meal. Expensive? Yes, but worth every penny and then some. I have been to the majority of steak houses in Dallas and there is really no comparing. The interior is elaborately posh with the Grand Piano playing as you walk in. The wait staff is always professional and very helpful. If your looking for a great dining experience or a place to celebrate a special occasion, then look no further.
Excellent Food, Excellent service...what more could you want?. I wanted to try III Forks for my birthday this year. I had heard about it from a number of friends and we gave it a try...and am I ever glad we did. THe interior reminded me of a great old upscale Texas place (think JR Ewing and Miss Ellie) with big band music from eras gone by in the background til the live music began. Our server showed great attention to detail! I ordered the III Forks salad (OMG, was it grande!), the smaller Filet (excellent cut of meat and seasoned to perfection with a crust on the outside and tender on the inside)...my husband had the Lobster Bisque (which he thought was outstanding) and the bone in ribeye. For dessert we had the 6 layer Texas Pecan cake...and it was marvelous. My experience here made me have a great appreciation for gluttony. From entrace to exit...everything was absolutely delectible. I have eaten at a number of steak houses from upscale to shouldn't be open, and this was one of the best dining experiences I have enjoyed in a while. It was pricey, but not out of line for this type of restaurant. I would go back in a heartbeat!
BEST place to go for your birthday!!. Three forks is an amazing special occassion location. We go every year for my birthday for a splurge and leave completely stuffed every time. You have to start with the lobster bisque - SO good!! Any of the steak options are great and the best is for dessert - Three Forks complimentary house made irish cream alcoholic drinks for the whole table! A perfect finish for the perfect birthday celebration!
Best steak in Texas. Hands down this is probably one of the best steaks I've eaten. I've eaten here numerous times, and yes they have the occasional bad night, but overall very consistent. Steaks have excellent flavor and are very tender. Best of all, the entrees actually come with sides! Sides consist of snap peas, mashed potatoes, and melt-in-your-mouth creamed corn. You can't go wrong with a III Forks salad, and I highly recommend the beef croustades as an appetizer. For dessert - get the bread pudding - delicious.
