The pre meal service and the post meal service was just terrible. I had to search out the waiter to pay the bill. If you get Carlo as your waiter, ask for someone else. Anyone else.

The food was excellent! Towards the end of the meal I felt like we were being rushed to leave. I finished my drink and before I could blink our waiter had picked up the glass. Other than that the experience and the food was great.

Went there on Saturday with my wife and a few friends for my birthday. Excellent service, atmosphere and food. I have been coming to this restaurant since it opened and I have always enjoyed it. I highly recommend it for a great steak and fantastic service.

Steak was great, but the soup and sides were average at best, which was a huge disappointment considering how much I paid for dinner!

We had the most beautiful Valentines/Date Night dinner! I think our server was Carlos. From start to finish, everything was prepared with delicious care. Our cocktails were tasty, the calamari was crispy and came our right away. They split our caesar salad for us and were very attentive to replacing our necessary utensils. My steak and lobster pairing was perfectly prepared, the au gratin potatoes were so creamy and the side of mushrooms were very flavorful. My husband’s filet was perfect and tender, the mac&cheese and mashed potatoes were wonderful. We finished with a hot apple crisp with vanilla gelato. We will be craving Forbes until our next date night!! Excellent service and delicious dining!

Service was fantastic, appetizers were good, mushrooms were great, Brussels sprouts were average, steak was lacking flavor. For the price point for the quality of food, not satisfactory. I don’t mind the price tag, but at that price point, you kind of expect better.

We enjoyed a fantastic Valentines dinner with wagyu steak and lobster. The food was outstanding and our server was superb. She was friendly and helpful but never disruptive. Our only sadness is that the beef carpaccio isn't on the regular appetizer menu...it was absolutely delicious! We look forward to returning soon.

Valentine’s Day dinner. Very rushed...felt like the restaurant was trying to flip tables as soon as they could. Main course came before appetizer was finished. If you stopped eating someone came by and asked if you were done and wanted the food to go. Happened 5 times. Didn’t offer desert...had to explicitly ask. Overall very disappointed!!!

I like to plan for things in advance and have done this on many occasions. I made a reservation through open table for Valentine's Day with a note on the reservation saying that i would like the corner table so me and my wife can share the evening in our own special way. Our hostess seemed to have her own agenda and seated us against the wall where they put all parties of 2. I noticed that the table i had requested remained unseated for the better part of 30 minutes. Until i saw a couple take the private booth, they seemed to be very chummy with the staff and the hostess. Food and other staff were all excellent as always, as for next February 14th, i will pass on Forbes Mill. I just cant stomach nepotism and sucking up to other guest as others get pushed to the side.

Combination of special events to celebrate.... service was attentive, dishes arrived at key times without you wondering “where is it?”, plate service was equally attentive, food quality was just excellent, overall so much better of a total experience than a few other high-caliber restaurants we’ve tried. We’ll be coming back for sure!

First of all, we were celebrating a wedding anniversary and loved how they put our names on the special menu. It was such a cute touch. Then everything else was awesome. The food was delicious, our waitress was wonderful and the ambiance perfect. Love this place.

After 20 minutes at our table we had to get up and find someone to come serve us. When the food came the waiter disappeared and never came back to check on us. After we were done eating it took 45 minutes for us to get the bill. The food was decent but the service was bad enough for me to never go back. And the cherry on top...... They added the gratuity to the bill.

Warmly met at front door by GM Bryant then directly to my fave table. Our guest was 20 minutes late but during that time our very professional server Matt made perfect suggestions for food and pairings!! Choices were perfect. Another delightful evening!!!

Food and service where excellent as usual. Had Wayne whom is an excellent waiter again and enjoyed his service immensely. However, something was up with the seating last night as our 7:45 reservation pushed into 8:10. Forbes Mill is usually pretty on-time but there was definitely something wonky going on Saturday. Either way, still love this place and will be returning.

Good food. Subpar services. Went for birthday dinner but no “happy birthday!” writing/icing on the dessert plate? All other tables were getting it. Nice touch with birthday message on the menu, though. Felt like the services were all very rushed. Asked about vineyard for one of the flights and was told that he would check it but no answer.
