Forbes Mill Steakhouse - Los Gatos Ratings and Reviews
If you’re craving excellent steak in a cozy elegant restaurant with the plus of being located in a superb city for browsing shops, this Los Gatos restaurant is located in the middle of a beautiful downtown Los Gatos.
Come early and have a pre dinner cocktail or glass of wine at Oak and Rye or one of the other wonderful bars.
I was disappointed by the size of my 11.$ Cesar salad, much too small even for a side dish- and in comparison to my friends' pear salad. Vegetable side dish needed to go back to the kitchen for some more cooking - just too raw. And the waiter had too many tables to really attend to us. Lovely cocktail.
The filet was excellent, one of the best I’ve had. The server, Tara, was also excellent, professional yet very friendly. My only concern was that our table was positioned so that bus people bumped my chair several times during the evening, never saying “Excuse me.”
Forbes Mill was a mixed bag. Some of the food was excellent and some was not all that good. The service was also mixed. While most was good we waited 15 minutes for our table to be cleared after the main course and finally had to get up and find the busboy to get it done.
There are better choices
Our server Jamie was very kind and attentive. It was our first time dining here and Jamie explained the january prize fixe meal to us. We we were celebrating our anniversary and the restaurant even went out of their way to have our names and congratulating us typed on the menu.
The January prix fixe came with a choice of starter, three 4oz pieces of filet mignon, swordfish, and venison. We added mushrooms, and the prix fixe meal came with a lemon dessert. Everything tasted deliciously Devine! We added the wine flight to our meal which added a great touch to our meal.
We would definitely dine here again for another occasion!
We enjoyed New Year's Eve dinner and the service was amazing, but I have to say I was a little disappointed in the actual meal itself. My filet mignon was enjoyable, but only maybe 1/2 inch thick? Looked more like a top sirloin when it was served. And the potatoes were barely warm. It was New Year's Eve, and they were very busy so I can understand why the meal wasn't the best I've had there before.
We went to celebrate new years eve with an early dinner. My wife had the filet minon and I had the seafood risotto. The risotto was perfectly cooked and the seafood especially the scallops were divine. My wife's filet was exactly as she wanted and the creamy spinach was to die for. Two very minor hiccups with service were easily overlooked and we would definitely go again.
Doesn't anyone use their indoor's voice any more ? Food was delivered cool. 2nd bite of steak was cold. Friend's order was cold as well. She ended up taking most of it home, where she could heat it up and eat it later. Staff was extremely busy, maybe some called in sick ? Checked on us in passing.
I recently took some clients to Forbes for dinner and they did not disappoint. The food was great, lively atmosphere but not so much that we could have a good business discussion. The only thing I was disappointed in was the inflated Wine Menu pricing. There is not a bottle under $125 and most of the $300 bottles are $75 at best....especially based on the wines in the area.
