We enjoyed an evening of wonderful food and good conversation with friends at Forbes Mill, then strolled around a vibrant town afterwards. It was memorable, and we will recommend and return ~

One of the best steakhouses in the South Bay. Great and properly-prepared steaks together with apps, salads and sides you'd expect from a really good steakhouse. Friendly, attentive and professional service.

This restaurant ALWAYS offers amazing food. We usually get the same thing (the kobe thing, called something else), but this time I tried the rib eye with blue cheese. I'm still dreaming about it, it was that good. Highest quality of meat, cooked to perfection = best restaurant in town. It is expensive, but you are never disappointed.

Had the Monday Prix Fixe surf and turf meal. From first to third course it was great. Nice that it included a glass of wine also. Been here a few times before and I'll definitely be back again in the future.

The steak was over cooked. The cocktails were not done properly. The brussel sprouts were mushy.
That said the service was phenomenal! Very attentive. When they brought out mushrooms errantly for the app, she quickly brought out the right appetizer.

It was an amazing experience. I proposed to my husband that night. The staff called me beforehand to confirm the reservation as well as any special request. Let me know how to hint the waiter to get the ring. The service is extremely well. The food is better than amazing. We have the special trio and lobster tail. So delicious. At the end they even surprised us with how they decorate the desert plate with the ring on top.

The food was delicious. The server was attentive but I think crossed a line in joking around with us too much. Very (too) pricey. Too expensive for a family dinner out. Would have appreciated some information on the menu about gluten free options.

Dinner date night with wife; hadn't been in about one year.

Service was very attentive, no time wasted in reaching out to us for drink orders; timely follow up for dinner selections

Overall food was excellent;

beet salad to start was superb; goat cheese was proportionate; I had recalled a previous visit where there was simply too much cheese and it unbalanced the salad.

Grass fed beef was delicious; came with a sauce over the dish as opposed to on the side; probably should have asked for it on the side to sample the purer flavor of the grass fed filet (as opposed to my wife's 'standard' filet from her filet & shrimp dish.

Overall, both main courses were superb and we felt provided a little more value (as each had sides) as opposed to just steaks ala carte. Nonetheless, we also enjoyed a side of kale (great preparation; not overly seasoned but yet still transformed the kale to higher heights than the spinach accompaniment to the grass-fed filet)

Only negative is that we didn't have room for dessert!

Bar service and table service top notch. Drink menu and the product out of this world. Food menu is wonderful, extensive wine list too. The only thing I have to say is that it is way overpriced for the quality of the food. Steaks were good but not a Ruth's Chris caliber yet charging those types of prices.

Horrible service and we were the first table sat! Never checked on after getting the mediocre steak and lobster and steak and prawns dinners. Had to ask the suit walking around to refill our drinks. This place is very over rated and food quality was not good at all. The lobster seemed like it was a frozen lobster as it was very difficult to cut through.
Will never be back to this very over-rated place!!

Forbes Mill is the best Steak house pretty much anywhere. They have a wide variety of cuts from around the world, great sides to pair them with, wonderful seafood (according to my date), and then you can finish off the meal with a lovely dessert. I've been going to Forbes since it opened many years back and they've continued to be a better restaurant over the years ... I am always excited to make a reservation there.

The food is fantastic, but the service is super terrible. Actually, at the beginning, it looked pretty good. However, during the dinner, it started to get worst. We sat there for 30mins and waited for your waiter to come and clean up our table and give us a check. It feel like they just annoy us because we are the only Asian couple there.
