Another fantastic meal (and leftovers!). Father's day and end of college quarter celebration. Always a bit pricey for the food is worth it.

Food is good but wasn’t thrilled with menu changes. The steak I got used to come with a starch and missed the petite filet stand alone option.

Fathers Day menu shouldve been better, prefixed menu. Quality was not near as tender as ordering ala carte. Quantity was sufficient but a bit overpriced, but hey, Its Danville!

Absolutely loved the entire visit. Wanted to take the wife out for her birthday, and figured why not give this place a try.

I got the blackened ribeye and she got the chicken! Both were perfectly cooked and full of flavor. Side dish of asparagus could feed a family itself!

Staff took the extra steps to make this visit one to remember, as we will absolutely be making more trips to our new favorite steakhouse.

I have dined here many times, I have never been disappointed. The waiter was attentive, the conversation could be heard (we were 6 at the table) and the lunch menu gave us many tasty choices.

Our waiter was nice but didn't bring bread. Very expensive, food was good enough but not excellent and certainly not worth the price.

Forbes is a good local place with mostly quality food that we frequent semi-regularly.
On our most recent visit we had reservations for four which they sat five of us without too much wait.
My wife's Caesar salad was not good this particular night, very wilted and old.
Other than that the meal was the high quality we have come to expect.
Two bone in Rib Eyes cooked just as ordered, two surf and turf (three nice shrimp and a tender filet) and one salmon. All enjoyed.

The food was somewhere between very good (seasoned well) and just ok—dry pork and halibut. We ordered their prix fixe and wine pairing menu. Parts were great—the steak, the sauces, and the wine—and the rest was not. All said, I would give them an average score for food prep and execution, slightly above average service, and a solid wine pairing. The price for the product was what did not meet my expectations. Not too bad, but not something I would recommend for a special occasion.

I felt my Filet was too salty. The reduction was too thick and not as balanced as expected.
Crabcacks were my appetizer and the citrus sauce seemed bland.
Regardless, we enjoyed ourselves and will give it a second try.
The coffee creme brulee was out of this world!

My family has gone to Forbes Mill for special occasions for years and it is generally very good, although definitely over priced. Tonight the noise level was worse than I’ve ever experienced. It was loud to the point where I could barely converse with my family. There was no one loud party of anything like that either. But the most disappointing was the food. I got a filet cooked medium and it wasn’t over cooked but it was so tough it was hard to eat. Also, I feel like they used to let you pick a couple of sides, and now it comes with a teeny portion of mashed potatoes or like 3 or 4 Spears of Asparagus. I haven’t been there since December, so I was really disappointed that it wasn’t the experience I’m used to....especially when I got the bill.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner last night. The aged rib eye was perfectly cooked. The baked potatoe was one of the best I’ve had. The ahi appetizer was excellent. We will definitely return. The service was very good.

My husband and I were here on Mother’s Day. We had reservations at 6:15 and arrived a little early but they seated us promptly.
Lorelle took care of us and she was wonderful! My husband said he would like a glass of Cabernet but didn’t know which one to order. She had an iPad or something similar that contained all of the wines they carry. Lorelle asked more about the kind he might like and made a recommendation. Then she asked if he would like to try a little bit before he orders a glass. He said it was ok but not his first choice. She made another recommendation which was more to his liking. She was spot on with the sparkling wine for me.
We each ordered the Fillet Oscar steak. When she asked how we would like to have it prepared, we said medium, but Lorelle asked how much pink we wanted in the middle and recommended that we order it medium well. They were perfect! We enjoyed the food and Lorelle’s suggestions. She really made it a special Mother’s Day dinner. We will be back!

This was my first time at Forbes Mill and it was a lovely experience. The service was good, but the thing that I would rave about is the Filet Mignon that I had. I can honestly say that it was the best that I've ever had. It melted in my mouth, and the portion was not skimpy at all. The others in my party had Salmon, Risotto, and Prime Blackened Ribeye Steak. Everyone loved their meals. I will definitely be back for another taste!
