This was our second visit and we decided to take our daughter and son-in-law for their anniversary celebration. The service was excellent and our server knew everything about the items on the menu and wine list. We were surprised and pleased to see a special anniversary menu with a food and wine pairing. Our daughter and son-in-law are food gourmets and wine connoisseurs. We all enjoyed our meals and the attention to detail by our server. We will definitely be back. Forbes Mill is one of my favorite restaurants.

The overall ambiance of Forbes is wonderful and the food is absolutely delicious the only part of the night that needed more attention was the service. Our waiter forgot about us and we waited for well over twenty minutes before we had to get another server to grab him so he could take our order. Once the food came we forgot about that because we were all in awe of how wonderful the food was.

Food was excellent, service okay. We had to complain about how dark everything was before they turned on lights for our row of tables. No bread was offered and even though my son specifically mentioned this visit was a birthday occasion, that was ignored as well.

Bottom line - for the price. Just OK. Objectively, my rib eye was ver good but slightly over cooked. For $65 per steak, perfection is expected but fell far short.

Was there to celebrate a friend’s birthday
and the service was very attentive. Had a delicious grilled chicken salad and the portion was huge. The other entree, a very small filet mignon, along with a thin carrot, and mashed potato was expensive with no presentation. The steak needed more seasoning too. Steaks are better at dinner time. Still one of my favorite restaurants!!!

I've eaten here several times. Every time has been for a special occasion -- birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, etc. Service is always excellent. Food has ranged from good, to very good to excellent. The meal this weekend was excellent. The meat (filet mignon) was perfectly seasoned and the seafood (tuna and salmon) fresh. Both meat and seafood were cooked exactly as ordered. I gave "value" only three stars. If you want value, go to McDonalds or Chili's. This is fine dining and by definition, pricey … but worth it.

It was our anniversary and they sat us at a table away from other guests and the table was lit with a nice candle, service was excellent and never pushy. We had the tasting menu and it was delicious and a very reasonable price with a wine pairing that was also reasonable and complemented each dish. Forbes Mill made our anniversary dinner into a special event.

We’re new to the area and have been trying as many restaurants as possible. We have a few we like, Forbe Mills was recommmned.
We were disappointed in the meal.
My simple Caesar salad was not fresh and the lettuce was a little brown.
The service was great and I hoped to like the food.
I’m not ruling this restaurant out completely, but hope to get a better meal next time we dine there.

We are local to Forbes, and usually dine here for a special reason. We took some friends to celebrate their anniversary. We were seated in a booth, and it provided us with a bit more noise suppression than being out in the open. Sergio waited on us, and did a great job from the beginning when he introduced him self. The food was very nice, presentations were awesome, and Sergio was there when you needed him, and not in your face. This place is expensive to us when we compare it to the twenty of so other placed in a five mile radius, but it was special. We will return to taste the yummy food soon, and look forward to it!

As usual, the atmosphere was great, and my wife and I had a lovely time here on our "date". Unfortunately, also a regular occurrence, was that the meat was a bit over-done. We had ordered medium rare and received it almost medium well. Additionally, the waiter tried cleaning up several times before we were done with the course, but then couldn't be found to address the steak temp. We'll be back, but more vigilant on ordering.

Tried the tasting menu for $79 without the wine flight: Apps were one scallop, two ravioli, Filet mignon, cobbler - was a pretty good deal.
The only complaint is that the ravioli came with pine nuts that we noticed when ordering. The waiter said he would have them leave them off but the dish came with pine nuts. They took it back and made another. The waiter said he would comp dessert but it ended up on the bill anyway. No big, it was only $9 and didn't want to make a fuss over it.
I had the New York and it came with a baked potato. Perfectly cooked.
Good service from the waiter and even better service from the person removing the plates and bringing bread, etc.

Quite a disappointment. Young children screaming on either side...
Steak undercooked - waiter actually asked if Id like it cooked more...duh.
Manager came by when it came back and asked how it was - and i said still undercooked.
For PRIME beef it was tough and no flavor. --a ribeye ...go figure.
Dessert? Not on your life.
Didnt even bother to notice the steak was still left on my plate.
creepy place.
