Forbes Mill is our "go to" restaurant for family special events, ie, birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, etc. Service is always excellent. The entrees are very good. Seafood is always fresh and steaks are cooked the way they are ordered. The Sides are hit an miss. Some times they're undercooked or cold and other times they're just right. Instead of stars, I would rate Forbes Mill as better than Haps and McNamaras and not quite as good as Ruth's Chris for food and better than all three for ambiance.

Wonderful lunch today. Great selection of wines by the glass! Everyone enjoyed the food, but I must note that the mashed potatoes that accompanied my filet Mignon were outstanding! Bravo! Service was good.

It was a special occasion for us, and they took care of us well. As requested a big, quiet booth so we could have a conversation - and a server who understood the difference between checking in on someone and intruding. Sometimes without a word, yet we never felt rushed nor neglected and the courses arrived at perfect times. We were absolutely satisfied with every dish, from the cocktails we ordered on arrival to the ahi appetizer, the entrees (quality steaks, perfectly cooked) to the dessert which they of brought gratis for our occasion. We would have ordered more, but we felt happy and satisfied - you know, the way you're supposed to when you're leaving a really good restaurant. Special mention of the excellent wine list - truly something for everyone. By that I mean every palate and price point from $50 to $3000 We easily found a great wine that went perfectly with our food, at a good value I might add. We will be back!

I brought my mother here for her birthday celebration. Overall we had a wonderful experience. I however, am saddened that bread and butter are no longer offered pre meal..... Come on now Forbes..... The prices for the meals are not cheap, and let’s not cut corners where guest suffer in order for you to save a few pennies... It’s bad enough that the sides are now charged separately from the meal.... I really hope this cutting back is not the beginning of a new trend here.... My family and I enjoy dining here and would hate to look for other alternatives...

Excellent service and Food.

I was a little worried when I got to the restaurant and was told table was not ready, we went to the bar and got excellent service and drinks, Hostess followed up with us and took us to our table where we enjoyed the Tasting Menu, including the wine pairing which was perfectly paired, every single dish was tasteful and waitresses were alert and provided us superb service.

We love Forbes Mill for all our special occasions. The food is fabulous, the menu tastings exquisite and the service is outstanding. Except for the bar. This is a Five Star Restaurant and the restaurant staff are great. But my wife and I arrived 20 minutes before opening and were graciously allow to sit at the bar. When the bartender arrived, he served his flip-flop wearing buddies- who arrived TEN minutes after us, and another demanding woman who also arrived after us, and never greeted us even once. The restaurant staff were extremely friendly, professional and made our visit five stars. Unfortunately I must caution about the blatant disregard for our tip money at the bar.

The ribeye was good however, it’s definitely over priced at around $82.50 (including tax and tip) per person. It’s too bad that the restaurant decided to stop serving Prime Rib.

Met with friends for another celebratory dinner at Forbes Mill. All four of us ordered the Angus Prime: 3 rib-eyes, 1 strip. Strip and 1 rib-eye were fine, 2 rib-eyes had a bit more gristle than they should have, although flavor was very good. I grew up in the Midwest and Black Angus is my favorite beef. Prawn cocktail and beet salad were excellent; FM makes the best prawn cocktail we've had in any EBay restaurant. Had leftovers, but somehow my strip steak didn't make it into the box. Mgmt was VERY apologetic and sent us a generous gift card to compensate for the disappointment. This is our 4th visit and our friends' 7th visit; first time it's happened so just a one-off error. Won't stop us from coming back! We've tried Flemings and Ruth's Chris', but Forbes is our preferred EBay steakhouse. Great for special occasions; service is well-trained and parking is easy.

Very over priced for what you get!!! We pride almost $100 cheaper for a table of 4 at Scott’s Seafood in WC. The food was better too. Plus your martini glasses are small & I ordered 2 instead of one like I do at other high class restaurants

Absolutely phenomenal. This is now me and my girls go to favorite spot for a great night out. The service, food, lighting, just everything was done superbly. Our server Eduardo was funny, professional and making sure that everything was up to the highest standard. We even ordered the desert just because of how genuine you could tell when he said "the lava cake is so good you have to try it". 5/5 stars, Forbes Mill has set the standard.

Had a great time on a date night with my wife. We had the oyster appetizer with the wine pairing. Oysters tasted so fresh and clean, that my wife that couldn’t stand the thought of slimey oysters actually had 4 oysters of her own. They were fresh and tasty. I ordered a wagyu filet and it was like butter melting in my tongue perfectly cooked medium rare. The sides were great also. We had the mushrooms and asparagus.
Finished the new guy off with a spectacular butter cake. My wife’s new favorite place, and mine too.
