We went for my husband’s birthday and was very excited to come here as I’ve been hearing good things about this place! Was excited to try a new steakhouse.
The ladies at the front were very nice! The place didn’t smell like a steakhouse, instead smelled like seafood! Which was very unexpected. (Yes we’ve been to steakhouses that serve seafood and it didn’t smell like seafood). Our waiter took a while to greet us after we were seated. Our water was not refilled/we weren’t asked if we wanted more water!(I even put my empty glass at the edge of the table). Our waiter had a very different attitude towards us than he did with his other tables next to us and near us!
The food was ok. It was good but not great! We got the sift and turf and the bone in rib-eye and a few sides. With the prices I was expecting to be wowed. The whole experience here was just ok.
A very nice and expensive restaurant located in downtown Los Gatos. No real complaints except I can get the same quality meal for 1/2 the price just about anywhere else. Still, a very nice place and ambiance.
Lovely birthday celebration
Thank you so much wonderful food and service!
85th birthday dinner for my dad. Great service as usual and great ambience on the patio
Excellent good, wine, and service. Forbes Mill never disappoints!
The food and service was incredible! What I like the most is the service was so unobtrusive, allowing us plenty of privacy to visit without constant interruptions. There was some difficulty providing the wine we wanted but that eventually was solved. Also, I had to ask for heat since we were outdoors. But they provided that very promptly. Thank you all for an overall very pleasant experience!
❤️21st Anniversary ❤️
Celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary! Best decision to celebrate with Forbes, overall great experience and food was amazing!
fish absolutely delicious, along with salads.
Waiters know our names and greet us
Love the food. Wait staff is awesome. Great place. Outdoor dining was very nice.
The food was delicious and the service excellent! It was very loud, but our table was in a corner and nice.
We opted to sit outside. Now that it gets dark before 7pm and if you opt to sit outside like we did, be prepared for constant headlights hitting your eyes not to mention the loud noise of cars laying scratch for no reason other than for millinneals to show off. It was irritating.
I have been to Forbes a number of times and its usually quite good. This evening, it wasn't. My date ordered the 16 oz Ribeye. It was so fatty, and tough that there was hardly enough good meat to eat. A total waste.
The other meal was so-so. I've had much better short ribs. The mashed potatoes were very bland. The vegetables were too raw to eat. They were a good 4-5 minutes short of being cooked Al dente. We probably should have sent back the meals but it was getting late and we didn't bother.
On the bright side, the service was top-notch and the cocktails were wonderful.
Enjoyed a lovely evening outdoors with wonderful service and extra friendly staff. The food was melt in your mouth delicious. Will go here again for sure!!
We went for our anniversary and made note of it, but the staff didn’t mention anything. However, the lady who called to confirm our reservation did.
My husband and I went out for his birthday dinner. The wine recommended to me by our server was excellent. The braised short rib was perfect and the bone in ribeye although it didn’t look good was really tasty. My husband’s carrot was cooked perfectly, mine could have cooked for about a minute more. The mashed potatoes, asparagus and mushrooms were great. The lobster tail and the scallop were absolutely on point. The creme brûlée was really good. Our server was great in the beginning, but disappeared near the end. Overall a great experience.
Food was good. Service was great. Prices a little steep, but to be expected in Los Gatos. Nice comp dessert for a birthday!!
Everything from the way we were greeted upon arrival, to the wine, food, and ambiance was amazing. Our server took extra care with everything and we never felt rushed. Great experience, and will definitely be back!
Food was fabulous but my husband's order was put in incorrectly and cooked wrong. For the price you are paying you expect it to be perfect.
The waiter had some communication issues. Our ticket was messed up and we were charged for several things we didn't order. But the food was delicious!
Great steaks and service, expensive but so is everywhere else in LG
My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Frobes Mill. Hadn't been in quite a few years, but our meal and the service was excellent.
The filet was a little salty but the prawns were out of this world. Drinks were a bit too stiff. We came in to celebrate a work anniversary and got a little bothered that the waiter didnt want to acknowledge that it was military service. The bottle tea was great. The attire states business casual but its more like wear anything you want. People are going in with tennis attire looking all sweaty and exhausted.
The food was fantastic. I had the Wagyu New York and it was cooked to perfection. A very nice wine pairing as well. The service was great as always!
The server was attentive and knowledgeable. My wife had dairy issues and they accommodated it. The ability to eat outside was great plus you can’t beat the weather. In the end they brought out a special dessert for our 13 anniversary
Our favorite place to eat. We tell all our friends and family to go here. Food and service is always perfect.
Four years ago it was really good. now it is just mediocre.
The food was not that good for what it was priced for. Won’t be going back there .
The restaurant has a great staff. They know your names .
Waiters very knowledgeable
Good is great and Theresa is fantastic!
Wonderful service. Special occasion location. Great whiskey offerings.
Great Experience.......the service was very good and the food was well presented and very good......
One of our favorite restaurant! We can count on great service and food done to perfection……
Had a great dinner and good service. Tables were a little closer than I was comfortable with but we ate inside. They also had outdoor dining for those who prefer that.
My husband and I celebrated our 14 year wedding anniversary here. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable.
The old fashioned is a must try! Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the potatoes al gratin were delicious. We were surprised with a happy anniversary dessert plate.
This place never disappoints.
The service was really poor comparable to the Outback Steakhouse and the food was average.
I agree with the other reviewer Anna S. The ownership needs to get rid of the creepy manager. He is the reason for the poor service at the restaurant and unfortunately it migrated to our waiter. I'm sure, not all the other waiters are like the manager and want to provide the best service, but are being hindered by this manager.
Everything was perfect: the food, drinks and service.
It is our favorite Steak House, food is always outstanding, our server, Chris, was excellent, very professional and engaging. We always are well taken care, well fed and made to feel we are valued customers. -js
Don’t let the $$$ scare you off. The food is outstanding. Worth every penny. The service was friendly and spot on.
We sat outside on a lean since the extension floor was not level, but we made a joke out of it because we were happy to be together and ready for good food. The service was slow- it took 20-30 mins to get our first drink orders and it remained slow from then on as well. One server was good, but the others were lacking in either desire to be there or experience working with customers. Nevertheless, the food was amazing!! Everything was beautiful, fresh, tasty- just excellent food, exactly what we expected from Forbes Mill. Drinks were delicious and food was great- just wish service was par with the quality of food. I will say, it was very nice that they provided a birthday dessert for my husband without us asking- that made it special. Overall, we had a good night and will likely come back for the amazing food!
We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and the service and food were just excellent. Our waiter was the best, very attentive even offering to take our picture.
