The waiter forgot our my Caeser salad order and put it in after my husband’s soup was delivered. The salad was nothing special. Other than that, the food was delicious. However for the price, i expect better service especially on our anniversary.

Hubby and I made a reservation for date night, which happens maybe once a year due to kids. We were really excited for our date at Forbes. The food was ok. I ordered the filet Oscar which comes with 2 4oz filets. There’s no way they were both 4oz one was half the size of the other and was gone it 2 bites. No where on the menu did it say that my filet would be coming with other veggies besides asparagus. Well I did get a few asparagus but I also got carrots, which I’m allergic too. If I would’ve known, I would’ve asked for something else. Other than that it tasted good. Hubby ordered the surf and turf, he loved it. For appetizers we ordered the sampler with crab cakes, which were amazing, the prawns which was good, can’t really screw those up, and the beef skewers which were extremely dry and chewy, although the flavor was good. My biggest issue with the night was service, we usually had to flag down our server who was either at the host stand or hidden near the kitchen talking to other staff. He only checked on us once after we got our meal and then we had a completely new server, didn’t know his name or anything, he just showed up with our check? Kinda rude. I understand that maybe our first server wanted to go home, but as being a server myself in the past, at least let your guests know you are leaving and someone else will be taking over. All in all it wasn’t a bad experience just could’ve been better.

Terrific food. Terrific service. Less than pleased with the Frogs Leap bottle of cab. It should have been aerated after opening, but that wasn't offered. First glass was wasted. After getting some air, second glass was much better. Expect a $$ restaurant to know better. Where's the som?

Great overall experience. Food was tasty. Service was ok. Honestly the drinks were horrible martinis were just a glass of vodka with olives and spicy margarita was just tequila and hot sauce switched to wine and the evening became much more enjoyable.

Food was good & we liked the ambiance. But at $60-75 per steak, I wouldn’t call it a fantastic value.

My wife and I went to the restaurant to celebrate my birthday. We were seated at a nice table for two. Service initially was great; drinks and bread were brought to the table promptly. Our steaks and sides were as we ordered. After our main course, however, service was slow and it took awhile for the dessert menu to arrive. Martinis here are first rate and, despite the hiccup in the service, we will certainly return.

This was our second time to Forbes Mill. We came 4 years ago for another anniversary. We decided to celebrate here again cause we enjoyed it last time.

This time did not disappoint. Everyone was very courteous and helpful. They gave us the personalized prix fixe menu and gave us a free dessert for our anniversary. We decided that we may come here every year for our anniversary because it was the same good food and service. We appreciate consistency. All in all, another good trip to a lovely steakhouse.

We couldn't have been more surprised with the extent the staff went too for our son' s 10th birthday celebration. Every detail was not overlooked and the table looked beautiful upon our arrival. I can't thank everyone enough for making this such a memorable event.

The steak did not cook right. We have to returned the steak. By the time we get a new one our company is done eating. The coffee is cold and the bday dessert that she brought out they did lite the candle . Over all the experience is not terrible.. They normally don’t counter all the bad service.

Food was very good. The service has really declined at this restaurant. Not sure if waiter was over booked or just should find a new profession. Manager seemed to be giving directions all night but never came by to check on any tables around us. Could just be poor leadership.

Food was outstanding, but our waitress was not, After we ordered we never saw here again, was not even offered dessert. Had to go to the Hostess and ask for our bill, which was almost $400.00. You would think that for that kind of money she would have been more attentive.
