Steaks are good, but not exceptional. Prices are way too high for the quality, especially when they nickel and dime ( or $5 and $10 ) for the basic side dishes.

I had a business dinner with a customer and four other associates. The meal was good and flavorful. It is a good place for a business meeting because the noise level is low and the ambiance was slightly dark and professional. I had the filet and my associates had rib eyes. They were cooked to our liking. I would consider... More

Excellent dining experience. The meals were served hot and they were very good. Nice ambiance, too. If you want a special dinner, this is one place to go in Los Gatos.

Really good meet with original entrees. I highly recommend the Blackened rib eye. The seasoning is just fantastic. Only down side is that it is really loud!

The people here at Forbes know what they're going. From the great bar staff that will make you traditional Whiskey Sour (with egg white) to the wait staff that will treat you like you own the place, you'll get great service here. But, and better yet, the food is exceptional. Definitely a must try.

Took a business associate who is meat eater. Nice ambiance and excellent full bar. Our waitress was very attentive and gave us time and space to talk business. I had dry aged New York and he had the rib eye. I still do not understand why a high-end steakhouse cannot make a better New York than I can make on... More

We had come to Los Gatos, to dine at Manresa, and were playing all other dining by ear. I have to admit that what drew us to Forbes Mill Steakhouse was their wine list, and we are glad that it did. We were promptly seated for our reservation, at a large two-top. I began with the wine list, to get... More

It's rare for us to down-grade a restaurant for its poor service because the quality of the meal is a higher priority. However last month's service was appalling. Our waiter told us that bread would be coming right away, but it didn't until after our salads arrived. When my trio of meats from the prix fixe menu was brought to... More

Top-drawer steakhouse - good salad, steaks, sides, and dessert. Very good service, too. The Blackened RibEye was perfectly done, and a large serving. Coupled with the Wedge salad and Creamed Spinach (with BACON!), I didn't have to eat for 24 hours!

Had the Onion Soup which was good followed by the Filet which was good but not fabulous. The staff were friendly and so we all enjoyed the evening. Expensive but it is The Valley so nothing unexpected.
