After reading these multiple 4 star reviews, I instantly thought it was a case of yelp eagerness to give the place a shining review just because it was food and it was somewhat edible. My experience last night at III Forks confirmed that the multiple 4 star reviews weren’t just flukes or glitches with some eager raters.
For a Friday night the dining room was rather empty which worried me. The wine display was great and had a nice impact upon first entry into the place, the waiter was quick to greet us and get our appetizer orders. I decided to skip any alcohol here since it was going to be a long night with Markus Schulz at Stereo Live.
I ordered the Seafood Medley which came with a single portion of the Shrimp Cocktail, Crabcake St. Francis, and a Bacon Wrapped Scallop. The Scallop was cooked perfectly and the bacon added the essential meat food group to the scallop lol. After eating Vic and Anthony’s crabcake, everything else just became a fight for second place and it seems like the crab cake here deserves the second place title. I would definitely order the scallop or crabcake as a main appetizer and skip the seafood medley since the shrimp isnt terribly memorable.
For my main entree I ordered a 12oz USDA Prime Filet Mignon cooked rare plus along with Six Cheese Potatoes. The 12oz portion was just the right size, and what astonished me even more was the proper preparation of the rare plus that I always ask for. It was a warm crisp outside with a nice cool inside. The filet cut like butter, soft and just melted in my mouth.
Overall a great dining experience, everyone at the table was satisfied with their orders.
Cliffs: Read the review as a 3.5/5, I’ll err to the side of a 3 since the service and food was great, but just nothing stood out. Add this place to the list of solid places to eat when you cant think of anything else.
After stepping back through the doors of iii forks today for happy hour and their insanely cheap bar menu I am giving this place the 4th star, sitting at the bar while writing this review made me think of the great service here and how much they deserve the 4th star from me. definitely come here for some great bar food during happy hour and the awesome filet, rare plus of course. lol.
4/5: Fantastic Service, Great Steaks, WIN/WIN!
