Excellent dining experience! The food was incredibly flavorful and cooked to perfection. The staff was very friendly, attentive, but not pushy. There was enough noise to have a private conversation, but not such much as to make talking difficult. We can't wait to go back for our next anniversary!

Some of us are a beef loving group, and they report that the beef is excellent; some of us prefer non-beef, and the fish and chicken dishes were good, as well. A popular Los Gatos place, for sure ~ especially if you want a good steak!

If you have a reservation, then there is no wait. If not, anticipate a few drinks at the bar counter before sitting. Food served surprisingly fast considering the huge crowd.

Overall, I was disappointed by our dining experience. We had a reservation but they were still running about 15 minutes behind schedule. The bar was packed, but the drinks and bartender were awesome. I was not overly impressed with our waiter...it seemed like he was anxious for his shift to be over. Finally, they ran out of mashed potatoes...at a steakhouse!

Excellent food - very consistent. It can be loud in the main dining area but there are two semi-private rooms you can reserve for larger parties. It's worth the extra money to book it. Wine list is great but they are ok with bringing in any of yours for a $20 corkage. Very competent and nice servers and bus staff.

We arrived later on a weekday, but the restaurant (despite being less than half full) was very noisy, primarily due to a party at the next table. The food was very good and we had great service. We enjoyed it even though we could not have a conversation without speaking very loudly.

Our server was excellent. In spite of the loud noise of nearby diners and the high ceiling, she made a great effort to be heard and to explain the menu. The food was not excellent. I ordered the New York steak. It was just ok. Also, the side dishes we ordered, the spinach and au gratin potatoes were very average. I believe this restaurant is just a popular in spot and not the wonderful steak house I hoped it would be.

Got the chef's special dinner, I highly recommend it. Kobe filet, lobster tail, and short ribs sampler for the entree. Good portions and excellently prepared. Service, both in the restaurant and bar, was excellent. Menu and wine list are on the pricy side, so it's more for special occasions.

I thought Forbes Mills was fabulous. I ordered Filet and prawns and I could cut the steak with my fork. The prawns were perfect. I wanted to change from mashed potatoes to au gratin..they were did it without hesitation. I had to the French Onion soup to start....incredible with lots of onions. I would go back to this restaurant today if I could!

Delicious food and the service is outstanding. It's a little on the pricey side (especially if you like to drink wine) so we don't go as often as we would like however we always go for celebrations (birthdays, anniversaries, etc) as they always make their guests feel welcome with special little touches (special guests name on the menu and a beautfiul dessert with the guest name). I would highly recommend the restaurant.

Two of us had the smaller rib eye steak. It was slightly dry and a little "chewy". For the price we wouldn't go back. We've been to Ruth's Chris many times and maybe we're spoiled.

The daily special is very cheap but the quality is not there: my husband had a NY strip steak and he found it stringy. It does not befit a nice steak house to serve bad steak. I would recommend increasing the price and the quality.

Once upon a time Forbes Mill Steakhouse was one of our favorite restaurants - we always had excellent service & excellent food/wine. On our last few visits, either the service has been slightly off or the food has. This last time it was the food - our waiter was great. My husband ordered the prime rib - it was surprisingly bland. Side note = the mac &cheese was awesome - many steakhouses overdo the truffle oil - this was perfect.
