I had a recent business dinner at Forbes Mill with a party of 10. As the host I had selected a nice bottle of wine. It was priced at $100/bottle. The waiter tried to "upsell" me to a magnum of the same wine with the...More

This is our favorite steakhouse. The steak is consistently excellent. Menu has a great deal of variety, and we also like the wait staff and the ambiance.

People were friendly but not knowledgable or professional. No one in our party of 4 enjoyed the food. Bone in ribeye and prime rib both seemed a poor quality of meat and poorly cooked. Forbes Mill just doesn't compare to a good steakhouse.

The service here was great. Very friendly waiter. I had the halibut and my husband had the filet mignon. Both were very good. The desserts looked great but no room left.

We had a great dinner here tonight. Service was outstanding thanks to Sterwart, our waiter. My filet was awesome and my wife's halibut and crab was equally as good. You won't be disappointed.

When I think of a great steak I go hear, versus treking to San Francisco. We have always had a great experience and the meal is more expensive then a Black Angus but the cut of meat is superb.

I've been to Forbes Mill twice, once for dinner with the family and once for appetizers and drinks. Both times I found it average. Not a destination I seek out, but will go there if that's where someone else wants to go. I'd rather go...More

After reading some of the other reviews I was concerned that maybe this wouldn't be the place to go. Instead it lived up to all the things I had heard about it from friends who have been. Our wines were picked out by the sommelier...More

The absolute worst dining experience for a supposedly top-tier establishment. Party was served rare prime rib when the order was medium rare. Birthday party guest was "treated" with a candle in the dessert order by another member of the party. The last time I waste...More
