Great food, atmosphere and service.
I look forward to going again!
Went for Valentine’s Day so the menu and prices were different than an average day. The waitstaff and service are always great! Food was good but they were absent the Salmon Fritters, which are wonderful.
It was great food and service was amazing!
Everything is fantastic! Great service, amazing food, wonderful experience~
Was disappointed as the steak was not as tender as billed, also with my crab cakes, I couldn’t taste the crab. Delicious salad though. Also think they need to offer some red wine by the bottle that is more affordable.
The service was very good. One of my guests ordered the $75 steak and it was very fatty
and overcooked. We sent it back and it was taken off the bill. They offered another but
myself and my other guest shared out steaks with him. Our steaks were good but
oversalted as were the sides. And this is from people who usually salt everything!
Taurus is simply the best restaurant in the Bay Area. The service is incredible, the staff has gotten to know us and makes us feel so welcome. Most of all, the food is fantastic as well, it never disappoints. We’ve tried almost every steak, and we highly recommend the Onglet and the spinalis. Ian is a fantastic server and has great wine recommendations as well, he always helps us pick a great bottle in our budget and teaches us about the wine!
The food, cocktails and service were amazing (as usual) The outdoor seating set up was thoughtful and one of the only restaurants where we all feel comfortable eating during Covid restrictions. It's a fantastic special occasion restaurant.
to whom this may concern, last night was my girlfriends birthday of 20 years lol so we decided come to taurus for her special occasion. it was our first time and let me say, as soon as we arrived for our 8:30 reservation around 8:10 we were immediately greeted and seated, we didn’t have to wait til the exact time which was really good. our waiter was very helpful and knew a lot about the menu and was very helpful in recommending certain foods for us to try. both my girlfriend and i got the filet mignon and the spinalis which was very delicious and tender with a nice marbling on the steaks. the grilled prawns was also very good. our sides were sweet corn and mash potatoes which i recommend as well. for our starters we had grilled octopus which was a first for me and an interesting taste, i liked it as well but i don’t think i’ll order again as a first choice or preference. the parmesan fries were very delicious we had to leave with an extra one to go haha. the only thing we didn’t like was our drinks. we ordered Shirley temples but they were pretty flat and didn’t have much cherry syrup in the sprite. my girlfriends drink tasted like it had alcohol in it which we didn’t order but other than that there isn’t much negative i can say about it. our food came really quick, it wasn’t too packed at all and it was pretty quiet all around which was nice. we sat outside and were under heaters which made us pretty warm and the evening more enjoyable. the owner even came to greet us and asked how our food was and if we were enjoying our night. we said yes! everything is lovely! overall everything was perfect from our food tasting wonderful to the service from the waiters and owner and wait times to be seated and how fast we received our food. i highly recommend giving taurus steakhouse a visit for anyone who hasn’t been. we definitely will be back!
Incredible steak and excellent sides. Great addition to the San Carlos dining scene
Overall great venue/outdoor seating. Service was nice and attentive. Food was excellent.
Incredible food, presentation, and ambiance! Our waiter made our experience truly special with his knowledge of the sourcing of meat, different cuts, pairing, etc. Truly an incredible dining experience.
From the appetizers to dessert, overall hands down the best restaurant experience we’ve had in ages! Definitely will be back!
We had heard great things and were extremely happy with our Sunday night visit to Taurus. It was a quiet mild evening with only about 4 tables of customers outside. All the tables had heat lamps so no worries about being cold. Every plate we ordered was delicious and just the right amount of food. Not the least expensive dinner but worth checking out for that special evening out. Can't wait to go back for more.
What a really a great surprise! My son wanted Kobe/wagyu beef for his special birthday. We wanted to keep our dollars local as usual. We enjoyed a small family celebration (7 of us) in the fireplace semi-private room up front. I was expecting it to be good, though not great and knew it was going to be very expensive. It was FANTASTIC and top notch service. It was much better than the same priced very expensive chain steak houses (ie. Fleming's, etc) and let me say again, MUCH MUCH better. Others all had some type of beef and reportedly every cut (in all of their price ranges- except the tomahawk which we didn't have) was terrific. I don't eat beef, so had the fish of the day (halibut) which was outstanding. Not for every day, but really top-notch.
It was an average experience. Food was good, ambience was lacking for a pricey steak house
Food was really good and once they figure out how to do proper (or even good) service then they can justify the prices.
Very knowledgeable waitstaff, terrific wagu and prime steaks prepared perfectly, wines marked-up a bit too much, corkage $50 which may be worth it.
Great Wine List too!
Want to go back!
Excellent magnificent food and steaks. However, it was quite overpriced for what we got. Service was amazing. I would definitely go back but not if I’m paying. 😉
Wonderful experience with excellent food and diligent and knowledgeable service!
A fabulous array of high-quality, unique cuts from Snake River Farms. The steak was wonderfully cooked and the wine list had some excellent values.
Full disclosure: Owner was known by my date and I had met him once. He was very accommodating with his time and effort spent explaining the nuances of each cut to us. Plus the added benefit was he knows his wine, which was a big plus to our whole table. To top it off he comped free three different desserts for our table of three. A table was reserved for us, reso was made by me, at a nice spot outside without, thank goodness, alot of foot traffic. I’ll be back. Cheers Hunt
Out of most wines we tried to order. The trio steak sampler was average. The burger was basic. Great fries.
Our first time dining indoors since Covid.
Ambiance was a little bright but, better than eating in the street.
Great food, wine list, knowledge and service. Very quality meal. I’ll be back for sure!
The food as not what we expected at all especially for the price. The fries stated like McDonalds fries with just cheese on top. Our steaks were over salted. They messed up my girlfriends steak. She asked for medium and got rare. All they did was put it back on the grill which I don’t think is the right thing to do especially knowing how much they are charging for a steak. Wouldn’t go again for sure.
Great & flavorful cuts of meat including Wagyu beef. Good service with outdoor and a few indoor tables. Extensive wine list. Will be back to try other menu items.
Taurus is The BEST Steakhouse in San Mateo County... Enough Said!
I want to thank the whole staff of Taurus for the fantastic service and DELICIOUS!! Food, not to mention the refreshing cocktails. This is the stake house to go if you like GOOD quality stake. Highly recommend.
Great service and great food
This is not a every day dinner kind of place, but if you want to make one date night to remember- this is the right place. This steakhouse has many cuts that I have never heard of. Since I do not recognize any of the name, I asked the waiter to recommend. Well... he did an excellent job. My partner and I are plan to go back there for other special occasion.
From out of state and was looking for a good steakhouse to take my girlfriend. Taurus provided 10/10 experience along with one of the best wagyu steaks I’ve tried.
Perfect date, food was amazing!
Excellent place to eat the food was very delicious
Best steakhouse I’ve been to in years. Definition of “melts in your mouth” with great texture and perfectly seasoned. Definitely a place to splurge when you need steak done right.
Food and service was outstanding highly recommended!
Delicious food! The mashed potatoes with truffle oil was amazing. The octopus was imported from Spain and a great appetizer. We had the Japanese filet mignon and the non Japanese. The Japanese one was tastier.
Unfortunately the waiter forgot to bring out something special for my boyfriend’s birthday even after I reminded him. Besides that this place is great!
Oh and the DJ kept the mood lively!
Had a lovely birthday celebration with safe outdoor seating. Attentive service with a fun attitude. The beef cuts were quite possibly some of the best I have ever had. I highly recommend.
They were short a staff person. Manager apologized. Food was excellent.
