Even though the food was ok, the service was appalling. Long wait to order. My husband’s entree (a steak) was brought out with his soup. A $90 bottle of wine was very so-so and should not be on their wine list. We finished our entree, placed our forks on the plate signaling that we were done and even though our waiter passed our table 4 times, he nor did anyone else take our plates. Our $300 meal did not include dessert. It is unfortunate and we will not go back even though they serve the best Wedge Salad I’ve ever had.
I went here to celebrate my birthday, and ended up being very disappointed. The service that I received was so unexpected because I've been here before and everything was perfect. My entire dinner was ruined because of the wait staff tending to everyone else
Had a wonderful 69th birthday party for my wife. Service was wonderful and food excellent. They offered a special birthday pairing menu (food/wine) which was great. A complimentary birthday dessert and glass of sherry sealed the deal. Thanks Forbes Mill!
Came here for our 19th wedding anniversary. We have had good service before, but tonight the server was not very attentive. The manager was nice. My wife’s steak was not cooked medium well, but was rare. It was sent back 2 more times, before she lost her appetite. My steak was cold, because I did not want to eat a very special anniversary dinner without my wife. My wife’s steak was comp’t, but our special night was somewhat ruined by poor food quality, and a very long wait for the steak to be re-cooked. Overall very disappointed with the night. We were given a gift certificate for next time, but I don’t think we will try the restaurant again.
Use to really like this place. Last two times steaks not as good. Think I need to find new steak house.
My wife and I went here for our 16th anniversary. Just about the perfect place to take that special someone for a special occasion.
Excellent food and service. I don’t know how they do it but the ribeye just melts in your mouth... no chewing necessary. Appetizers were excellent as well with the calamari being one of the best we’ve ever had. Highly recommended!
Great food and enjoyed the friendly service. The waiter made my daughters birthday very special. Thank you
The price of dinner was very expensive and will deter me from stopping by at the spir of the moment
It was really good! Great service!
Every thing was great.. First time to have lunch at Forbes Mill.. Have had dinner several times. Certainly will be back for lunch.
Great service and food! Had a wonderful time. Beautiful quiet atmosphere.
The food was incredible and our server was excellent! My husband enjoyed his birthday dinner with his friends, great food/drinks and great service. We dine in SF more but we liked the how even though the restaurant was full, it didn't have the "crowdiness" that SF restaurants have. This place is great for date night and big groups.
Our first visit to this very nice restaurant in the heart of Danville. Best way to describe it: Easy. Easy parking, easy service, easy environment, and the kind and quality of food and drink which you would expect from a top notch steak house.
Our first time in a couple or years. Party of five celebrating a BDay. From the onset we were welcomed; Chad the Bartender was friendly, helpful and engaging; our waitress was attentive (what a memory), friendly...just the right attention; food was very good and right size portions; we brought our own cake and the did the candles and sang. Highly recommend...I don't think you will be disappointed.
Went out to celebrate my husbands birthday with friends! We had a great meal and the service was excellent. The only negative I have was that there was a large party near us and the noise level was very high! My husband is soft spoken and until the party left we had difficulties carrying on our own conversation. We will still go back!
Amazing food & service!! Very loud, though
This is our go-to restaurant when we are celebrating a special occasion, on a date night or if we are craving for great steak. We celebrated my birthday here on 7/19/2019 and brought another couple with us and their 3 month old baby. It is their first time at Forbes Mill Steakhouse and they were very impressed. Hostess was very accommodating when it came to the baby. We were treated as 5 adults and not placed in a corner to hide the baby in case he cried. Nice touch!! Antonio,our server, took great care of us and gave our friends special attention. Our friends were very happy and impressed with the service and quality of the food.
Another amazing meal at Forbes Mill. The great service started right after I made the reservation. Within minutes the host called me to confirm 1) my seating preference, and 2) which person in my party had a peanut allergy so that they would be prepared. Not only did they verify my seating preference, they even suggested an even better seating arrangement. And double checking on a peanut allergy was a huge plus. As a parent of a child with allergies, it is always stressful when we eat out. Forbes Mill made the put us at ease. The food of course was fantastic. The Wagyu and the Filet were cooked exactly as we wanted. The whole family really enjoyed the meal, and the service made it that much better.
We booked the Dinner for business gathering. I am very impressed by the service as I booked 2 days in advance and on the dinner day, I got a call to confirm the reservation and in the early afternoon I add one more seat to the table, the person answered the phone knew my order right at the spot. The food was great , so was the wine. The wine was so impressive, one of the executive was thinking to purchase more for his house. The price is a little upper end, I guess now a days cows are not just eating hays. thanks very much for the good dine experience.
It was our anniversary and we had a corner booth out of the way. Fixed pros menu displayed happy anniversary, nice touch. Food with wine pairing was very pleasurable. A perfect evening and we will be back.
This was my first time dining here, I loved it! This is the new benchmark for fine steak restaurants. I wish I had discovered it sooner.
We have been coming to Forbes Mill about twice a year for the past 6 years. It has been a reliable destination for anniversaries, birthdays, couples' night out, etc. We have almost always had a great experience.
I have to say this was not one of those times. Our server was very nice, got the orders right, but was a bit harried. I ordered a filet medium rare, and this time I got a Safeway caliber steak cooked medium. I didn't want to make a fuss at our full table, so I ate it, but had we been there as just a couple I would have sent it back. Asparagus was a bit mushy (and I'm not that picky). Just kind of a "meh" meal.
Don't lose your edge, Forbes Mill. We need a nice, reliable place for quality food!
A culinary gem in Danville, they made our Birthday celebration just perfect & memorable with exquisite food & world class service!
Food was A+ and the service extraordinary
Good food and pleasant service. Salmon and halibut were perfectly grilled...still juicy and not dry one bit. The French samurai is still the best cocktail ever even though it’s not on the menu anymore.
Loved it! Steaks were great. Husband loved grilled prawns. Vegetables beautifully done and not overcooked. Espresso creme brulee was amazing.
Inez our server was an absolute delight!
Food is always wonderful, that’s why we keep coming back.
Service was great!
great service and great food. Our go to place for steak
Expensive but good.
It was our 47th Anniversary and they had a special menu for us. Our daughter and son in law were celebrating with us and we all decided to try the menu they created for us that had three courses and dessert. Everything was delicious and beautifully arranged. When asked how my husband would like his meat cooked, our waiter checked with him to make sure he knew exactly how he wanted it. It was perfect! Thank you Forbes Mill for making our anniversary so memorable!
Many thanks for fanatics food and good service. How a lovely day.
I received excellent service. This was my second visit, and I brought a guest who thought the service was excellent.
Nicely greeted by the receptionist and seated right away. Our waiter and his helper were great and attentive. Our dinner was phenomenal !! Forbes Mill is our birthday dinner location because of the great staff and fabulous food.
The service was minimal. The food sides were sparse and my medium rare blackened ribeye was not blackened but certainly was well done There were two unrecognized birthdays at the table unless you count in Happy Birthday on top of the multi course dinner menu they were offering.
Have already recommended twice. Several wait staff attended my friend and me. Service with absolutely no interference, there but not there. Best of all, the food was the best I’ve had in years. My steak was delectable. Cooked perfectly with a flavor I can’t describe. Tender. Also loved a delicious salad and scrumptious mashed potatoes. Can’t tell you when I’ve enjoyed a meal more.
The chicken roulade was dry and the mushrooms were cold.
The steaks were good, and children’s menu is a good value. Management comes by to check on food and experience.
We celebrated our anniversary here. Everything was amazing!
The only thing missing from this restaurant is sourdough bread. Bread basket has flavorless cardboard bread. In Bsy Area a good/great restaurant needs sourdough
Service was on point. Food was all good! They also made our celebrant happy! Thank you!
