The only problem I had was my credit card got authorized for 198.00 after already being charged my bill balance of 250.00. I would not have left a 25.00 tip if I knew that would happen

Food was great -fun salads (beet and wedge), medium rare steak cooked perfectly! Love the wine list, never been disappointed. Unfortunately, our service was rushed where we do like to enjoy our meal at a leisurely pace. We received our wine, immediately followed by salad (no bread), then entre was served before salad was eaten. It wasn't very busy, so was surprised by lack of engagement of server. Will go again, but was disappointed in overall service

We have been to Forbes mill many times, this time however the menu was stunted and the only special was soup. Very disappointing menu and for the price it wasn’t anything special.

Waiter accidentally spilled cocktail sauce on me and the booth. Took him awhile to come help clean it up, he also was taking an order at the next table, was going to sneeze and instead of sneezing in his elbow turned and sneezed on me. Last but not least my guest had to ask numerous times for her left over steak (doggie bag)
The service was very disappointing.

Everything was great except the loaded baked potatoes. They were either under cooked or stale and tough from sitting out too long.

Otherwise they steaks,soup and wine were impeccable

The fact is this was just fine, as in OK. I had the grilled chicken sandwich. The tomato made the bread wet. The chicken was just ok. The fries were fine. Overall, just OK. I have been 6 times and each time, that was my sense leaving. For the prices, I expected fantastic or amazing. It is just OK.

Food was average and overpriced. We found shells in the crab meat and the Hollandaise sauce was cold. We ordered 2 dinners that were supposed to be 8 oz fillets and one of them was 2/3 the size of the other. Looked like a quality control problem. This was my first time there and I was not impressed after spending >$100 per person.

Forbes continues to be consistent in their quality of food and service throughout the years. Their kona coffee creme Brulee us still one of my favorite desserts. Since I was already beef'd out from the holiday festivities, I wanted a non beef dish. Since there was no pork chop on the menu, the server highly recommended the ahi tuna. Wow! That was perfectly light and tasty. No leftovers. We also enjoyed the selection of wines. Howell Mountainous wines are one of our favs. It's rare to see on wine menus.

Had ahi tuna that was exceptional. Oysters were the freshest we have ever had. Friends had ribeye and loved it. I would highly recommend this place.
Its a bit pricey but you get a side dish with entrée that is better than most steakhouses. Would definitely come back.

This was our first visit to Forbes. We like to try a new spot for our New Year's dinner and we were very happy with this choice. The ambiance was so mellow and relaxing with soft music and lighting. Some restaurants are chilly, but Forbes was very cozy. We had a large booth all to ourselves. Our meals were outstanding, beautifully presented, seasoned perfectly and just the right amount to satisfy without feeling stuffed. Veggies were crisp/tender, not over or under cooked. I loved the special touch of French press coffee made fresh at the table. We highly recommend Forbes, whether you are a steak lover or not you will find something delicious to enjoy.

I would suggest when you have a guest sit down and order a $350 bottle of champagne the server should take note. The guest is probably looking for additional attention to detail. When your guest order another $350 bottle of wine the manager should take note. The guest is certainly paying attention to detail. When both your guests both order steak and lobster the cook should take note.
No notes were taken...

I gave you a two star and that was being very generous. I t was 3rd time eating at your establishment in the past 8 years. I will not return!! Every time has been the same. Almost fair. For the the price you really should be embarrassed. I give restaurants 2-3 chances before I never return.
The reason we book at your place was because Flemings in Walnut Creek was full. What kills me though is what we experience the other night was exactly what we experienced the past 2 times in 8 years and we said WHY did we go back. Steaks are fair, that s all! Return half of them always because they are not cooked the way we asked them. Even this time my son told the waitress his cowboy cut is too rare we he orders it med. rare, she advised med. due to the bone in. Guess what? Too rare. My Rib-eye only fair.
That was almost a $400.00 dinner for three. REALLY. My question: Why would I give a 4th try?
