Forbes Mill Steakhouse - Danville Ratings and Reviews
Waiter was distracted- we had to remind him we didn’t get bread then he forgot about the soup order. When we reminded him wrong one was brought out. Then 5e correct one but the French onion soup has a small piece of bread floating lonely and no yummy cheese cap.... what the heck? We sent it back...
This was our second trip to Forbes Mill and I doubt we’ll be back. We were seated 15 minutes after our reservation time (although we were on time) and waited another 5 minutes at the table because it wasn’t set right. After being seated we waited another 7 minutes to see the server and get the wine list. Our steaks were excellent; however, the baked potatoes were over cooked and crusty. We requested sour cream and butter when we placed our order and it was not served; we had to request it again along with salt and pepper as there was none on the table. Our server (blonde females) was ambivalent throughout our meal. I expect a much higher level of service at a restaurant of this caliber. Our experience simply was not worth the price we paid.
The steaks were prepared perfectly and were delicious. Overall a great restaurant, excellent service and we will return on special occasions. We always get a good table.
Prices are on the high side. Steak options were somewhat limited.... had to choose between a 6 oz fillet or a 14 oz NY. Would have liked to have ordered an 8 oz NY.
A nice spot for excellent steaks with a very good wine list and great wait service. The lights are somewhat dimmed creating a romantic & relaxing environment. The only con:would not recommend the Half & Half Sides(2 sides in one), as they are small portions and were not very warm(!)
During my first visit on July, I was not so happy about the service, but I wanted ti give anothe try and made rezervation for meeting with my friends after 7 years break.
After I made the rezervation, I red the reviews and terified. I was at the edge of cancelling my rez. But it was to late to do that.
That night started at the bar and I got very friendly treatment.
But the real thing, was having Alex and good meal. We were ofered different tables for our choice, and after Alex showed up, I was so happy that I did not cancelled my rezervation. He made our meeting a wonderful one.
Thank you for everything.
Love that they have a combo lunch where you can get a half sandwich with 4-5 side choices. It’s the right amount of food and the price was right -$12. Last time I was there I had a prime rib or brisket sandwich au jus and it was amazing. I did not see it on the menu this time.
This was are first time eating here and it did not disappoint! The booth for two we had was great, the waiter and waitress that served us were very courteous, the steaks were amazing and the complimentary birthday dessert for my wife was a great touch. It's on the pricey side but we will definitely be back!
We had a party of eight for dinner with one couple splitting their entree. Six of us had a glass of wine, but none of us had dessert. The bill with 20% required gratuity was $462! We have been to several fine dining restaurants in the San Ramon to Walnut Creek area the past several years. This was by far the most expensive place we have eaten and have no plans to return as a group or as a couple. The service was great, and by being at the corner table, the noise was minimal. The atmosphere was excellent. The food was delicious, but I guess the three of us did not realize when we ordered the Seafood Pasta, that the sauce was quite spicy. My wife had the Twin Peaks sirloin, and it was fantastic.
We really enjoyed a nice dinner at Forbes Mill. The service was warm and attentive, and all courses in our meals were great. Our friends who drove in for dinner were very pleased with the pick.
We started with a cocktail before diner and they were very good. They hostess were helpful in accommodating us since we knew we were going to be a bit late. The wine selection was also nice and brought out with our entrees, as requested. The filet mignon were perfectly prepared and delightful. All the courses of the dinner were excellent. One plate we ordered was just a bit overcooked, but nothing offensive. I recommend spending a little extra for the prime. Being our anniversary the restaurant did provide a nice desert sampler, with a nice touch including "happy anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate.
Our meal was fine, the food took a long time to come out, but the appetizers and drinks were quick. The service was good, and the quality of the food was ok -- nothing to write home about honestly. We went here because it was close to our friend's house. I would not return unless it was a similar situation.
Delicious filet steak cooked to perfection with excellent peppercorn sauce. Baked potato was also great with all the fixings
Creamed spinach was simply too rich with too much meat in it and heavy cream
My husbands blackened ribeye was heavily sauced and covered with carmelized onions -again, wat too rich . He had to scrape it off
Next time we will order with this in mind- keep it simple Our server was efficient but quite stuffy - not my style
I spoke with the manager while there. Service was poor - waiter and waitress were not attentive, never introduced themselves, and spilled wine when pouring glasses. Steaks were very good. The rest of the food was average. We had a party of 6 and our steaks all came out 2 at a time about 2 minutes apart. Bad experience. Would not recommend to others. Seems overpriced for the level of service.
My only criticism is that it was my mother in laws birthday and her first time visiting.... our party arrived 15 minutes early and had to stand right in the front door until our table was ready.... my mother in law is on a cane.... maybe rethink the waiting area for parties with children..... I understand that if we didn’t have the children we could’ve waited in the bar area I’m assuming.... just a suggestion.... overall she had a great time and I would recommend Forbes
First time at Forbes Mill for a birthday dinner. Every member of the staff was courteous and polite. Our server and his backup were especially attentive. The food was delicious and the presentation was artistic. Great wine list. Definitely adding Forbes Mill to my list of go to places in the east bay for a night out.
Dinner was fine, but they charge $25 for corkage, which is ridiculous! We always share our wine with our server, & typically they waive the corkage, but we shared with 2 servers who were jointly waiting on us. One was gracious, but the other poured a good size glass for himself. So to be charged $25 for corkage is ridiculous. Won’t ever go back.
