Forbes Mill Steakhouse - Los Gatos Ratings and Reviews
We went to Forbes Mill for my birthday. They had a special menu with my name on it and a complimentary delicious dessert. I love the ambience,quiet and elegant. But, most of all, the filet was absolute perfection. I think it was the best filet I’ve ever had. It was cooked perfectly, you could cut it with a butter knife and the flavor was scrumptious. I got the trio of sauces - peppercorn, Demi-glaze and bernaise. Yummy, yummy!
I chose a restaurant which specializes in steaks as our guests enjoy top quality beef, cooked perfectly. Two of our steaks, ordered rare, came slightly pink. It is difficult to send food back when you are entertaining, but in retrospect, I wish I had done so. The service was lacking; the wait staff were enthusiastic but did not seem fully competent. The wine flight with the prix fixe meal arrived 10-15 minutes after the entree.
We went to Forbes Mill for a birthday dinner. They nailed that aspect — everybody from the seater to our waiter wished my wife a happy birthday, and her desert was beautifully and appropriately presented — and everything else. The food is very good (including maybe the best Oysters Rockefeller I've ever had), the service was attentive and super-friendly without being over-bearing, and the atmosphere was fun without being too noisy. There's no denying that it's notably expensive, but it's a great "occasion" venue, the bar area looked good for a casual counter dinner, and it absolutely delivered both for us and our young son. One of those places where you sense they've being doing this a long time, and know how it's done.
This is one of our favorite restaurants but I was a little disappointed recently. I noticed the prices on some of the entrees increased by $4.00 but the food was the same
Maybe even a little smaller portion. Also, I usually order a glass of wine and the 2 Cabernets I like were not on the menu any longer. They only had 3 to choose from and 2 were 25.00 and over per glass. The other I did not like. We like to dine here every Friday or Saturday night but may choose another restaurant next weekend.
Our server was awesome, food was excellent!
It was my wife's birthday, they made a personalized menu with my wife's name on it that made us felt welcomed!
$150+ for 2, for a full course dinner is indeed a value for money!
having a kid's menu, high chair/booster only proved that they are kid friendly.
Loved it when they did their best to accommodate our request to be seated at the booth so our daughter can seat beside us.
Complimentary desert is best!
*Cant help but compare it to Alexander's where we paid $200+ and not kid friendly.
The servers need to be able to follow request. The food was warm however good, and there were fish bones in our appetizers. We celebrated a birthday, and the personal touch to the menu was impressive that is the reason we did not walk out. Still tipped however we would have tipped 40% not 15% had our needs been met.
We have been dining at Forbes Mill for decades and it has always been a wonderful experience. This is the first time we have had any complaints. The service was slow and the waiters and bus personnel were unattentive and the restaraunt was only half full. Our steaks took 25 minutes to arrive after we finished our appetizers even though we ordered everything at the same time. Our bus boy, not our waiter, brought our meal and initially brought the wrong order. I had to ask for horse radish sauce from 4 different people before it was actually brought 10 minutes later. Unfortunately, we were disappointed celebrating our anniversary, given the top-dollar that is charged for the food and the large cash tip we always leave, since we know many of the people there. I am sure we will return in the future but not while this experience is in our minds.
Have eaten their many times, but I will say their steaks have drastically improved. I have eaten their at the bar many times, large groups, but last night took my youngest son for his 20th bday and he ordered the steak and lobster; it was well worth the price and highly recommend it.
The food was absolutely delicisious. It was a fantastic meal.
The only complaint I have is about my leftovers. I had steak oscar.
When I opened up my box last night to enjoy the crab, creamy potato, and steak - I was so disappointed to only find the plain steak. I was looking forward to the crab and potato leftovers even more so than the steak.
I would definitely go there again. Everything was delicisious!
I made reservations on OpenTable. Received a phone call to confirm our reservations and was asked if I was celebrating anything. I told her yes, I was celebrating my 21st Anniversary. When the waiter handed us the menu, it had "Happy 21st Anniversary and our name on it. Wow, such a nice touch. We received amazing service and the food was fantastic! The best part, the waiter came back with the dessert menu and said, your dessert is on us. We got two delicious desserts to share with our kids. We've gone to other steakhouse restaurant before but the service and food here at Forbes is definitely the best. Can't wait to come back!
We have always had great food and service up until this last visit. We went for my husband's birthday and the experience was not up to it's usual standards.
The service was "ok". The waiter forgot our sparkling water, so we had to request it a second time. We asked for more sugar for our coffee and the waiter never brought it.
Our food came out and it was luke warm. For a meal of that price I would have expected way more.
Not sure we will be going back.
Came to Forbes Mill for a special occasion. We were early so waiting only a few minutes before being seated. Server was prompt and attentive. For whatever reason we didn't receive a cocktail menu (only the extensive wine menu), so we assumed there was a full bar and ordered cocktails accordingly. We ordered the Surf & Turf and the Ribeye. I had higher expectations for the lobster tail, especially at that price, but it was kind of tough and chewy (but I didn't want to be that person who sent stuff back). The steaks themselves were good. We were pleasantly surprised that they gave us a chocolate pot du creme on the house for our anniversary.
In summary: decent service, definitely on the pricey side, food could've been slightly better, appreciated the free dessert, but not dying to return.
