The ratings tell the story. Forbes Mill has been my favorite Danville restaurant for years. The problem this time was noise level; we couldn't hear ourselves talk. We were seated next to the booths, near the bar. In the past I have always sat by the windows on the south side, and never noticed the noise level. I will specify that seating in the future. Restaurants today have become too bare-bones - no curtains or other sound-absorbing materials. I'll be back, but only if I can sit at the windows.

My filet was very rare instead of medium. Other than that, very good.

I was looking for a quality Steakhouse to book a last minute Birthday Dinner reservation and found Forbes Mill. It's a little $$$$ pricy but the outstanding service and 2nd to none quality of the steaks are worth it. If you're looking for the BEST Steak in town, you should try Forbes Mill Steakhouse in Danville!

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner here on 7/24/21. The food was, as usual, stellar. I had lobster tail and filet mignon as well as a Caesar salad which were all prepared impeccably. My wife had the shrimp scampi. Our server was very attentive and the wine list was great although I wish they would bring back the Rombauer Zinfandel.

Excellent food and service on their patio. Steaks were done to perfection. Calamari and Caesar salad were tasty. Amy was very attentive. We were not rushed. Since I am not a wine connoisseur, I felt the wine choices by the glass were all a little pricey but the wine was delicious.

Overall, delicious food and our server was excellent. Only one problem which prevented 5 stars. We discovered a long hair in our creamed spinach. Of course, we didn't eat it. Brought it to the attention of the server. They took it off the bill.

My husband enjoyed his dinner. The New England clam chowder was good, our drinks were good. My dinner, the shrimp scampi was not good. I could not eat it, it was very, very sour, to much lemon in the sauce. I thought maybe it was me, but my husband taste the shrimp scampi and he immediately puckered up. Lots of money was wasted on my dinner.

Anniversary Dinner for us and an immediate nice touch with a menu that had "Happy Anniversary" printed at the top. As usual, great filets, mashed potatoes and creamed spinach excellent, but the only very mild criticism is the vegetables not cooked enough. Excellent service!

Finally a restaurant that acknowledges your birthday. I enjoyed the menu with happy birthday and my name. The service was outstanding. I really loved the sweet chili prawns appetizer. The prawns are very big and so yummy. I also enjoyed the special birthday dessert. Thank you for making my birthday very special.

I started coming here in 2018 and wish I had sooner. The food is excellent, service is always great and very easy to get to with ample parking. The appetizer's are fantastic and the salads and main course are delicious! The desserts are good too. Only problem is I'm usually to full to order them. Oh, and don't forget a cocktail or wine. They have a great selection as well. Enjoy!!

Good food, but may have been left out too long so the steak is more lukewarm rather than hot. I had patio dining so my waitress came by rarely to check on me. 30 minutes without a drink refill. I generally have refills 4 or 5 times in a 2 hour meal, but only got it once. No one bussed the table for another 30 minutes so my soup and appetizer bowl stayed on the table.

Since the food is good, I may return. But service needs to be more than impeccable at the prices they charge, so these visits will be very rare. There are great steakhouses with much better service, but the food here is not good enough for the level of service you endure.

Service was poor and the food was a average. The dining experience doesn’t align with their high prices. If you want a fine dining experience and are willing to pay that little extra for something special, then I recommend you go somewhere else.

Been here twice now and both times the food has been underwhelming. Steaks come out luke warm at best. Baked potato is small and cocktails weak. Other food is just ok, For the price it should be awesome. Ruth's Chris puts this place to shame and will remain my place of choice.

Been here several times. One of the best places to get a good steak or piece of fish in the tri-valley. Great service, good appetizers, robust diverse menu, nice location with outdoor or indoor seating. Pricey, but good.
