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.
Jamie was THE absolute best!! Made our night and made our birthday guest feel special. If you go there, definitely request sitting in her section. It’s an experience you won’t want to miss. The food was absolutely delicious, but Jamie will certainly be a reason we return.
The service was great and the steaks were cooked to perfection, and very flavorful.
Forbes is our favorite place to eat. The service and food are the best.
Excellent as always
Both of our meals we excellent, and fairly large portions. Our server (Jeffery?) was excellent , with a very good knowledge of both the food and the wine. The presentation was maybe on the weak side, but that is not of major concern to me. Naturally, it was outside dining, but our table was on the sidewalk, rather in one of the offset patio areas. This was a bit disconcerting, with the passing people with dogs.
My husband and I decided to go here for dinner, based on the reviews we wanted to go somewhere delicious. Overall the food was ok, the service was great, but we were seated outside. Being outside you can’t always avoid bugs, loud cars driving by and people walking by staring at you as you eat. This establishment has a large parking lot, where I feel they could better accommodate guests to make dining more private. As we dined we also over heard the manager or owner, not sure, having a LOUD conversation about seating and placement with an employee. He was clearly upset and scolding the employee, they moved the conversation “inside” but we could still hear the conversation. A leader, manager, and/or owner should never attempt to resolve or address an issue where customers can hear, it’s just unprofessional. Even though the food was good, I probably wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.
Ben and Javier were amazing!!
Nice dinner for anniversary celebration. Food was excellent, outdoor dining but nicely prepped, and service was great.
ingredients are not fresh.
recipes for food for not delicious or creative,
feels like a ghost town and depressing.
$15.00 for four pieces of tomato and old mozzarella cheese salad -
no Value of money
We love Forbes Mill and this was our first dining out experience since Covid. We were excited to be able to eat outdoors- and the food was great. Service was also consistent and servers were great. The piece of feedback I have is that on the street, there were a lot of people not wearing masks (which was very surprising). While I understand that they cannot control the people on the street, there were A LOT of people walking up to the hostess and walking into the outdoor dining section without wearing masks. This made us feel very uncomfortable - and I hope that the restaurant enforces mask wearing (at least until people get to their tables) - which should be in compliance with county guidelines as well.
Great food and service
Service here is terrible.
Have always loved coming here. Food is always on point. Unfortunately service was exceptionally slow on Friday night - we had to track waiter down multiple times to put in drinks orders as well as wait for our red wine reduction sauce so long that the steaks were too cold to enjoy. Too bad because it's always my go to place.
Both mine and my husband's steaks were overcooked, and my lobster tail was smaller than menu advertised. I do have to say it was still tasty and a relaxing dinner.
Jeff was awesome - food incredible. We'll be back!
Sunday nights - steaks are overdone (twice now). Other times steaks were fine.
Great like always but the minimized menu removed some favorites of ours.
Went to Forbes Mill for an Anniversary Party. Unfortunatley it was the hottest day in Los Gatos in years. I do have to say that although we were outside due to the pandemic the temperature had dropped to the high 80s which made it better than earlier.
The food was great and Mac, our waiter, was spectacular. Will go back there again soon.
