Nice find in a new Town for meThe restaurant was warm and energetic for San Carlos. The layout of the place was nice for the size and location. The ambience was to my liking for the day and time I was there. The dish that I had was delicious. The chicken and waffles dish was a nice surprise and so was the special bacon! I was there for brunch and my next visit will be for happy hour and dinner.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMService on Father's Day wasService on Father's Day was slower than most. My dad ordered a steak with a baked potato - they said they weren't offering baked potatoes. I was surprised at this since most men like to eat their steaks with baked potatoes. My chicken was a bit undercooked in one area on my salad.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic luncheon!My party and I had the most delicious lunch. Town's Power Lunch is a fantastic deal which includes a starter and a light portion of a main entree. Shaking Beef done Vietnamese style was fabulous, tender and tasty! The Crab sandwich was superb. Service from start to finish made our visit to Town very relaxing and so enjoyable.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBDay dinner for the wifeGreat food with great recommendations from the staff. The slight mention of my wife's birthday prompted them to special print menus with birthday greeting to her. Totally accommodating with storing and serving 2 special quarts of my wife's favorite angel food cake frozen yogurt along with their fantastic complimentary warm bread pudding. A fortunate surprise, the two desserts paired perfectly together.
As usual for most American restaurants, there was way to much food for one sitting. Knowledgeable server provided perfect steps for next day takeaways.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis Place Knows ServiceTried this place because of the Yelp reviews and also for the menu selection of steaks. The wait staff and manager delivered amazing service - we will definitely be back again.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place...The food was fabulous. If they have the halibut on the menu, it's a must order. The bread pudding is the best I ever tasted (I wouldn't normally order it). We were celebrating our anniversary and they made it feel special. They exceeded our expectations on the delightful food and service. I will definately go again if I'm in the area.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove TownGreat food, terrific service. Can't wait for my next visit!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe came to town to celebrateWe came to town to celebrate a graduation. The food was delicious and the service was great, we will definitely be back soon!!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dinner!Town has created a restaurant to enjoy 5star food and great service in a comfortable space.
Everything we had was worth repeating. Appetizers of tuna sushi, tomato bisque and potato leek soups, along with cheesy bread. Great tasting sea bass, prime rib and rib eye steak. So Delicious!
And Jennifer, our server, had each part of our meal in front of us as soon as the previous dish was cleared. We were able to converse and eat without interruption because of her service.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOrder the seabass ;-)My wife's friend knows Chef Jeremy and recommended the shaking beef and seabass. We were not disappointed and neither will you. Warm napa salad is also a must. If i was feeling better i would have taken to the bar as they had a good selection as well as Town's take on some classic cocktails. Love this place. Make sure to say hi to Chef Jeremy.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and ourThe food was great and our server was just as great!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Town ExperienceI have been to this establishment numerous times and I have to say that I have always enjoyed my experience at this restaurant. The food is amazing--full of flavor and cooked to perfection. Normally, I visit town for dinner, however I had brunch for the first time ever this past weekend. I ordered the town waffle. The presentation was beautiful and when it came out it was a beautiful golden brown and cooked evenly through. I came topped with some high quality whipped cream and some fresh fruits. The fruit and whipped cream was delicious along with the waffle and maple syrup that it was served with. The only thing that bothered me about this was how small the waffle was. For $9 the waffle should have been bigger.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGo here late on Thursday nightThis place is usually almost impossible to get in to- we made a reservation for late on a Thursday night, without any problems, and we were able to park right in front of the restaurant without any problems, thanks to the farmer's market that ended at 8. The food, as always, was great...5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation lunch/brunch at TownTown did a top notch job from table selection, to flower placement, to printed menus to great food for my daughters high school graduation event.

THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS! Several of us are from out of town but will be returning to The Town!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice place, right onA very nice place, right on Laurel Street in downtown San Carlos.

We were celebrating a special family milestone and Town made it feel extra special. Everything we ate was wonderful. The wine list was very good. We had one diner that needed gluten free accomodation and the kitchen couldn't have been nicer. Our server was phenomenal, we sat for quite a long time chatting and catching up. Not once did we feel rushed or that we were an inconvenience. Truly one of the best dining experiences I have had in quite a while. I could not recommend Town more highly. I will definitely be back.
Thank you very much Town for making our night extra special!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGo to Town!Always a pleasure to go to Town!

My grandma was thrilled that there was a "Demi" portion of soup (which was delicious).
Everything was great except it was sooo noisy in the restaurant! Hard to hear. I was with my 84 year old grandma though so it was an extra challenge.
We loved it and will be back!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely worth checkingAbsolutely worth checking out! Food is delicious and plenty of flavor, service is great.

As always, the food was delicious and the service was very attentive. It was a great experience to celebrate our anniversary!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for a nice dinnerWent there for a nice dinner with my wife.

AlwaysFood consistently good. Always busy...always loud but sooo popular.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI went there for their SundayI went there for their Sunday brunch because they offer $15 bottomless mimosas from 10:30am-2:30pm with the purchase of an entree. The glass was never empty. The food was prompt. I had the "San Carlos" something. I cannot remember the name but basically scrambled eggs, side of county potatoes & toast. The country potatoes was really salty. I complained to my waiter & immediately reordered the meal for me with no salt. The manager came & explained that they add Parmesan cheese to the potatoes as well as salt. That is why it is so salty. Personally, I can only tolerate small amounts of sodium but my date enjoyed it. The salt-less version of my meal was delicious. They do stop pouring the mimosas after paying the check. Eat slowly!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
