Yikes! Did Town go down hill!? Worse food by far! Even regular items that we always love were bad! The waiter told us to be careful that the cheesy garlic bread was hot and fresh out of the oven. Sadly it was cold!!! And the bread tasted stale.

My salmon and vegetables were just very over oiled. I could feel the oil all over my lips and mouth which is not a good feeling.

We spent $110 before tip and my Fiancé and I both left feeling we would’ve honestly enjoyed a frozen pizza or fast food way better for the fraction of the cost.

My fiancés steak was overdone not medium rare.

I think we will stick to your other restaurants like Milagros. Cheaper, better food and better bang for your buck.

Last 2 visits were just so bad that I can’t say we will be back anytime soon. Town used to be our favorite place for Birthdays and special occasions.

Overall the food was at best a three. The sides were first rate, but the beef was probably choice instead of prime.The service was good and rates a five.

Fantastic food, fantastic service. It's a bit noisy, though; tough to hear conversation even though the other person was only across the table. Otherwise, a great place for any occasion.

The food and service was great! We had a 5:15 reservation because everything was booked until 8. The happy hour crowd was there, and very noisy. That was my only complaint -noise level! Will come back!

Moving from San Diego recently we wanted to love this place and make it our go to. We likely won’t go back. Service was good but the food was ordinary vs exceptional. We had the ahi appetizer, filet with blue cheese, sides were broccoli which was my favorite thing of the meal, green beans, potatoes an gratin and sautéed mushrooms. Not much flavor for any of it. Interesting that it was really packed on a Wednesday and we were hoping that would mean it was amazing...it was not. Definitely not worth the $200 bill for the two of us.

Food and service were excellent. Portions were generous. I was disappointed that the prime rib wasn’t available “rare. The restaurant and bar were full and extremely noisy to the point that it was hard to carry on a conversation. No place to sit or stand comfortably while waiting for our table to be available.

I ordered a brussels sprouts salad. There were almost no dressing there. It was very dry and no flavors. I would expect something more interesting from such a highly rated restaurant.

Appetizers and desserts are fantastic!

Entree was forgettable! Meat wasn't cooked as requested... prime rib was medium when asked for rare as possible. Rib eye was too rare when asked for medium.

Teriyaki skirt steak tasted great!

Service was very good! Very helpful with suggestions!

I don't know if we'd come back but I recommend trying it at least once!

Our 7:00 o’clock reservation wasn’t quite ready for us. We understood due to the popularity and the fact that a restaurant can’t control when the previous guests finish their meals.

The manager, host staff, and servers all apologized to us for the slight delay. The acknowledgment was very appreciated despite the fact we didn’t complain about the delay.

We felt the entire staff was sincere and genuine in their attentiveness.

My ribeye steak was unremarkable and the mushrooms in a heavy brown sauce were also a bit heavy. Others enjoyed their ahi tuna. Desserts were very good.

Fantastic service and food! I love how the waitress and hostess was aware that we were celebrating my friend’s birthday. My friend loved the personalized menu wishing her a happy birthday and she was surprised by the bread pudding that came out after our meal. Overall fantastic experience and will be back.

The service was excellent! Our waiter was delightful and very attentive. However, the food did not appear to be made to order which is expected at a place with this menu and price point. The deviled eggs appeared to have been put together well before service started, as they weren’t fresh in appearance or taste.

We had an out of town guest, she enjoyed herself.
I had the crab sandwich--no lemon to squeeze on it. The coleslaw was terrible, not taste to the dressing at all.
Give a man a burger-any kind & they're happy.

It was my first time dining at Town and I have to say they definitely know how to make a Birthday boy feel special. It was my 27th Birthday and wanted to eat a good steak. My family and I ended up here and absolutely loved the phenomenal service. The bartenders were A1 and our server JJ was on point. He recommended great dishes and even kept a conversation. He was very attentive and knowledgeable. I can say I’ll definitely be back for more. Oh and the food is amazing. Get the skirt steak! One more thing they also customized the menu saying “Happy 27th Birthday 01/29/1992”
