5 oz. Maine lobster tail
great location and food. Waiters exceptional in service. Owner comes over to say hello
Our first visit and it was an outstanding experience with impeccable service, excellent wine, and brilliantly prepared food. The scallops appetizer and crab cake appetizer are a must have! Our entrees, filet & prawns and filet & lobster were absolutely delicious and are highly recommended.
The service was great! The food was very good. The French Onion Soup is different than it used to be. Still good but not as good as it was before.
Amazing food and great staff!! Enjoyed the time. Steaks are fabulous
Wonderful evening! We had a great table with heater—plenty warm. Delicious food as always and our server, Ken, was awesome!
Consistently good food, the waiters are knowledgeable and attentive. I love the new paint colors inside and out, looks great!
Simply the best steak house in the area
Great Food and the heaters made it very cozy...Service was great also
This is our first time eating with them for outdoor dining due to COVID. the setup was well thought out. Plenty of heaters to keep you warm on a cool night.
Amazing, it’s a classic steakhouse that has everything you’d want
Perfect evening to cap off a crazy week!
Outside seating was not an issue.Heaters very good and everyone was very comfortable. Our Server Mack was very good.The steaks were cooked perfectly and the Owner came by to say hello also....Great night!!
Really bummed with my experience tonight.. we have been to Forbes mill multiple times over the year.. it has always been one of our special places. We were really disappointed to find that even though the menu online and via the QR code at the table showed “dinner for two” options, these were not honored for our meal. Supposedly they are take out only options, even though nothing speaks to that.. we ended up ordering a la carte and the waiter gave the impression that since we were there for our anniversary and, i assumed because of the confusion about the dinner for two menu, he would give us a complimentary dessert. That didn’t happen either. Two disappointments in the same night on our anniversary. Really bummed over the whole experience. :(
Valentine’s Day dinner. We were seated outside as everyone else but our heater was running low on fuel. The server offered to change the fuel but we had to ask 2 more times before it was finally changed (during our appetizers). Speaking of appetizers, ours came and we had to wait to eat them because we didn’t have utensils ready on the table. We were also moved to a different section during our main entrees to get a decent heater and lighting. Summary: the food was good enough but the service and overall experience could have been better (especially for the occasion).
Waiter and staff were fantastic! Cocktails were good. We were there on night with limited valentines dinner menu. The steak was tender but bland with no flavor. Almost as if it was broiled in a oven with absolutely no seasonings, the mashed potatoes were runny and grainy as if they were instant mashers. I was somewhat disappointed in the food. The ambiance was great especially with being limited to outdoor dining.
First time time here. We loved it.
Food and service were amazing. We had crab cakes & French Onion soup for appetizers and filet with scallops & Surf & Turf with creamed spinach for dinner! Can't wait to return!
Great job of putting together a wonderful outdoor environment. Both the rib eye and the filet were perfectly seasoned and cooked. Excellent creamed spinach and the service was excellent . Always one of our favorite dinner spots.
We had to sit outside (cold evening) and there were no tables with heaters (the wife was not happy). However, the owner (Darren) pulled an audible and found a heater somewhere. Between Darren, myself and some kind folks at the next table over, we dis-assembled part of the new awning Darren had recently installed, fought with the heater for 15 minutes, but finally got everything working. Definitely a team effort, and the wife was very happy! This was an example of the owner and a couple of customers pulling together to make hay of this COVID scourge. Would do it again in a nano-second to help the local business owners of Los Gatos.
It was pretty cold outside, so I recommend bringing a blanket. They said they have heaters ordered. The meal still came out hot and delicious. The area was set nicely. It’s not their fault, but the cars were pretty loud at times. Overall they made the best of what they have to offer given restrictions.
Service and food are always the best here. The only thing is they should invest in some outdoor heating
Wonderful experience at Forbes Mill. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was outstanding. We sat outside and had a private table for our daughter's birthday. They made the evening very special!
Dinner was delicious and the servers were very friendly. Temperature checks at the front and mask worn all around.
Excellent as always! Great staff, food, cocktails. 5 stars every time.
Great service from Ken. He always makes the experience unique and enjoyable. The food was perfect and this is a great place for couples’ night or date night.
Excellent!!! ThNk you.
Excellent service-Jaime was amazing!!!
Attentive service and great food. Love FM whether for a biz meal or taken out during COVID.
top quality steak and side dishes, nice wine selections, friendly and attentive staff, indoor dining has proper distancing, convenient parking, just a really nice place to go for dinner
COVID_19 room limitations for some of your areas lack ambiance - only the main dining area has this, plus what's now expanded outdoors, w/out heaters - DOH
Service has ALWAYS been slow at Forbes Mill - Ugh
When we asked for a 'Trio of Salts' (something many steakhouses offer) our waiter had a visible negative reaction to the request.
His facial expression was : Are you questioning this restaurant on how we prepare our steaks?
Sorry, Man - that's not customer service.
This was our first indoor dining since shelter in place and we were craving Forbes Mill signature menu.
So disappointed when we sat down to see the menu. Overpriced and only à la carte. We decided to stay but were very close to leave.
The food was really nice, but this was not what we hoped for.
Great food and a very nice outdoor setup. The tables were space well beyond 6ft. The was windbreaks, but not enclosures. The service was excellent. The food was outstanding!! Can't wait to go back.
Service and food is always great!!!
Steaks were so so with little flavor and when I asked for sea salt I got iodized salt and when i asked for sea salt again, I got Himalayan salt, then I gave up. Also ordered the wagyu which through Dio Deko or Sundance is phenomenal but here, tender but no flavor. Lastly, the ambience and atmosphere was weak. Would be nice if they invested in nicer chairs and tables vs furniture one could buy at Target.
Great food and great service. We ate inside and everything was spaced appropriately for safety. Overall great experience.
Food and service was great. The pomegranate cosmo was the best!
We went to Forbes Mill for a birthday dinner and the food and service were fantastic! We all six had the filet, and they were all cooked perfectly. I actually thought it was the best I've had in a while. My only complaint is that for the price, we shouldn't have to pay extra for the starch. The steak came with two little pieces of broccolini and one baby carrot, it's kind of a strange presentation on such a large plate. You have to pay extra for the potatoes and that's the least expensive ingredient. Most places give you the entire meal and those are the places I will continue to go to. It's kind of a sticking point with me, $12 for a side of mashed is kinda silly with a $50 steak. If they ever change their practice, I'll be back for sure.
Forbes Mill is a great restaurant the food is always great never changes over the years can’t wait for them to return to serving rolls with dinner miss that greatly but would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone!
Too expensive for the dishes served. Tried once won't be revisiting.
