We got there about 5 minutes after hour reservation. The waitress took us to our table and it only have one chair I sat down my wife and waited about 5-7 minutes until they brought another chair. The waitress came and asked us if we want anything we asked for appetizers which they brought up but after that it took him about 30-35 minutes to ask us if we were ready to order. When he finally approached us my wife was a little bit upset and told him that we were waiting for a while for our order to be taken. Right away he apologized and talked to another waitress to take care of our order for the rest of the evening. The new waitress Javier was very attentive and did a great job.

The food was good but a little bit pricey for what you get especially with the poor service they provided to us.

Steak and sides were incredible and the wine list has a lot of good selections, although trends toward the higher end. Space could use a little updating inside.

As a professional Salesman, I've experienced many a fine steakhouse. My Ribeye last night was the best steak, hands down, that I have ever had. Cooked exactly to order, covered with a peppercorn sauce, it was spectacular!

My new favorite restaurant!!!

We have been to Forbes many times and have always found it to have high quality food and service. While we were completely satisfied there were only a couple minor issue (none with flavor): out of all the veggies on the plate, the carrots were undercooked and both mine and my wife's mashed potatoes were luke-warm (they should always be served hot as they cool quickly). Now, having said that, we also asked about an item missing on the menu and our server allowed that we could go ahead and order it as a meal rather than a side (lobster tail) and my wife was ale to have her favorite item on her birthday. They also brought a special dessert plate with Happy Birthday written in dark chocolate. Also, I managed to knock an empty wine glass on the floor and break practically as soon as we sat down. They cleaned it up quickly and brushed it off with a laugh which eased my tension for having been careless. All in all, we will be back for the terrific food and top-notch service.

We made reservations for 8:30 arrived early but didn’t get seated until after 9:00 ..... so much for making reservations that were honored by the restaurant. Why bother requiring guests to make reservations if you are not going to adhere to them. I was disappointed that there was no apology or attempt to provide us with any type of service while we waited over 1/2 hour past our reservation time to be seated.

Although the seating was outside (which is what we chose), it was nicely done. The service was impeccable, Ben our waiter was very pleasant and attentive. We ordered calamari and oysters as appetizers and they were great. Their freshly baked breads (hot out of the oven), we’re delicious. The French onion soup, New York steak, ribeye steak and filet were perfectly prepared. The kids loved the Mac and cheese and we loved the broccolini and asparagus. Don’t miss their delicious gelatos and sorbets.

Forbes mill is a great steakhouse HoweverThe cooks need to be more careful regarding rare versus medium rare. Both of our steaks were ordered Medium rare,One of them came out over done The other under done. Our servers were very attentive to this problem And took the steaks back to the kitchen Where one was replaced And the other was Cooked a little more.The results were exactly as we Expected. Good job To your servers and your cooks.We will definitely Come back!
