The steak was cooked and seasoned well. Creamed spinach side was perfect. Service was very good and made some great suggestions including bringing the liquor menu, which showed a very good scotch selection. Overall a very nice experience.

Great service and great food. We did indoor dine-in and the tables were spaced properly. The waiter was very friendly and attentive. He came back to check on us to make sure every was ok. Last but not least, the complementary birthday cake was a nice touch. It did not have to be fancy but something to go along in the pictures for the memories. Nice job Forbes Mill Steakhouse.

Chef made Beef Wellingtons on a Thursday for a special order birthday request , they were fantastic. Table service, as usual was very good.

Alex, the Sommelier recommended a great Cab to go with the Beef.

Owners were in the House and very attentive and the whole evening was excellent.

The food, environment and service we’re fine however I will never visit this place again as upon returning Home I was reprimanded by email for not showing up for my reservation. We in fact showed up on time, announced my name , had the requisite number of people and enjoyed a $500 meal only to be reprimanded for not showing up. I will not visit again.

Overall, one of the least favorite dinners we have ever had. To be clear, this was food only that was truly sub par.

Service was 10/10. Great service.

Food was honestly 2/10. Steaks were less quality than Applebee’s...no flavor. Certainly not cooked properly, not even close. Sides were just loaded with salt. And the salmon risotto was cold and tasted like wasting 2 day old fish soaked risotto. Extremely poor food.

Out of the 6 meals. One was decent. The rest were just not anywhere close to expectations for the cost.

I rarely write reviews. But please consider upping your steak game as an owner. And for individuals, go with caution sadly. Just was a massive let down.

We took our family for our son’s birthday dinner last Saturday night, it was awesome! We started with appetizers, crab cakes and calamari both were delicious. I usually don’t order crab cakes because I enjoy cooking and make homemade crab cakes often and so it’s usually a disappointment but these were great. We had soup and salad both were very tasty. The entrees from the fish, ribeye steak and short ribs all were excellent. Finished with a few desserts, I enjoyed the creme brûlée but the apple crisp was also enjoyable. I forgot to mention the cocktail specials were also very impressive. One more thing the service was superior all in all a fabulous experience. Definitely will be back.

My wife enjoyed her birthday steak, and the potatoes where dreamy. However, I had the steak and prawns. The steak was the smallest I think i’ve ever had. We had to stop at a drive through and pick something for me to stop my stomach from growling.

It was our family dinner on Sunday evening... we had ordered scallops, fillet mignon - Oscar, wague beef... asked about medium rare.. in the end we had well done meat, our scallops came quite late (but in the end thanks to our waiter, he removed from our check this item)... on the side with meat we had potato which was quite oily, with Wague beef we had amazing mushrooms... with “Oscar” .. it was crab cake with mustard, which was quite sour, so we didn’t touch it.
Our server was very friendly, attentive, perfect service!

So ... it’s good to visit for one time, but unfortunately the food does not worth of their “name” as “Forbes”.

Food was very good but to be charged for bread at an establishment on this level and to top it off then not get the bread until we were finished with out meal. Additionally waited for longer than should have been the case to have someone take our initial drink order. Better service expected for a $300 dinner for 2.
