The meal was shockingly expensive for what we got. $38 for about 6 oz of tenderloin with french fries was ridiculous. We ordered it med rare and it came well done. To their credit, they did take it off the bill without being asked. The salmon was cooked correctly but bland. Overall, a very disappointing experience...

Had an EXTREMELY loud group of 12 next to us which made it impossible to carry on a conversation at our table. Management did nothing to quiet the group so we had to ask to move to another table 20 feet away. It was still very loud! As a result of this experience what we had hoped to be a special dinner ended up being very disappointing!!

We have been to Forbes Mill in Los Gatos but this was our first time in Danville. We came here to celebrate my mother in laws 87th Birthday and they did not disappoint! The food was excelent; all steaks cooked exactly the way it was requested. Service was great! Lorele (sp?) was an excellent waitress. She knew when to be around and when to not be around. She guided us though choosing the correct cooking of our meat, recommended amazing desserts and special cocktails. She knew the bar items very well. And best of all she was just pleasant and had a great sense of humor. The only down side to the evening is that the restaurant is very loud and noisy (ceilings too high and not enough fabric to absorb the sound) so my MIL had a hard time hearing us when we were talking. But all in all, a great night! Also . . . they made special tasting menus that mentioned the 87th Birthday. :-)

Went to Forbes Mill for a business dinner meeting with my 2 bosses and a client, his son and wife. We had our waiter and a sub-waiter who handled our table. They were on top of everything. We didn’t finish our drinks before they asked if we’d like another. We all had salads before the meal and it was very good. The food was excellent as most of us had the Filet Mignon. I also had the Prawns and they were great also. We had Scalloped potatoes as a side dish. Very tasty.
Most of us had a dessert and there wasn’t a plate that had any left. Our waiter took care of me with a little extra portion of 2 desserts I passed in but they sounded delicious. They were. All-in-all, a very pleasant and fun dinner!

We dined here several times and always enjoy the atmosphere as well as the food. One of our favorites at lunch is their half sandwich and soup or salad offerings. They satisfy you without leaving you wishing you had eaten less.

The service was less than desirable. We have dined here several times. The food is excellent. The waiter brought us the wrong cocktails. We ordered Champagne and he brought us red wine. My salad and entree came at the same time and one of the sides was missing. When taking the order he did not bother to ask in what order we would like our salads and entrees. I ordered an cappuccino after dinner that had no milk. I had to ask for milk and advised the water that there was none in the cappuccino. Instead of offering to bring me a new one, he just brought the milk. Very disappointing.

Disappointed. Level of service was good except our server. He was just the bare minimum level of service. Went for my husband’s birthday. They even gave us a special “birthday” chefs choice menu, so it was a known event. Watched them pass by w many candles on desserts, but when it was our turn, no candles, no dessert. For the prices, just not at all impressed. Filet was kind of greasy as well. It was “fine” for a steakhouse dinner. When you dine at a steakhouse you expect a little better than fine.

Had a really good dinner in a nice booth. Service was pleasant and not overbearing. Forbes is a better value than comparative high end steak houses as they include potatoes and vegetables with their steak dinners where others only provide an a la carte steak for about the same price. Nice job Forbes.

The atmosphere here is very nice. The steak was good but not as good as Ruth's Christ steakhouse. The accompanying au gratin potatoes were very good. The entrée also came with broccolini and it would have been nice if the waiter had informed us of this. We ordered asparagus which was not needed. In addition, the presentation of the asparagus was terrible. They piled it in a bowl without any sauce, lemon, or something to add flavor. It was boiled and looked that way with a very faded green color.

We order a wedge salad which was good. There was an extremely long wait between the salad and entrée course. If you order a bottle of wine, be prepared for an extremely expensive wine list.

We have gone to Forbes several times over the past several years and had never been previously disappointed with either the food or the service until this past weekend. The service was mediocre wherein the past the service was always impeccable. The food was also not up to the usual standard that we expect from Forbes. I am not sure if this is condition is the new norm or just a fluke. I am hoping it is the latter as this is normally a wonderful place to eat.

This is a nice steak house, though I would not say from my experience it is quite top drawer.
I started with a superb cocktail called the "Say no more" (barrel aged bourbon base) and the Pork wings, which were quite good. Nothing special, but very flavorful and well prepared.

For my entrée I ordered Surf and Turf with Foie Gras, mushrooms and mashed potatoes. The Foie Gras was slight, but excellent, and served not as a side but ahead of the entrée. That worked out well.

The entrée was very good except for the lobster, which was a bit tasteless. It was an Australian tail, which they call “cold water”, but as far as I know, Ausie lobster is spiny lobster is warm water. In any case, it was a bit tough and lacked flavor. The steak was excellent, comparable to the best I've had anywhere.

I enjoyed two very good reds from their excellent wine list.

Service was excellent, though a bit slow for such a slow time in the restaurant. But because I mentioned the problem with the lobster, I was compensated a bit, greatly appreciated and unnecessary, so service gets five stars. These people took my satisfaction very seriously.
Overall, a great place to dine. I hope to be back (but it won’t be for the lobster :)).

This place is always great for good food and to visit with the rest of the party you are dining with. They typically take good care of you and do not rush you out of the restaurant to flip a table. During my most recent visit they were not clicking on all service cylinders but the food was still excellent. Little things like not bringing the bread to the table (even after they confirmed we wanted it), they brought the soup with no spoon, they forgot one of our sides and first time ever they started clearing the table in between courses before everyone at the table was finished.

I would still recommend this restaurant because the team is helpful and the food is very good.

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.
