    Been going to Forbes Mill for years for all special occasions and food has been above excellent. Daughter ordered Filet wrapped in bacon cooked rare. In past, always perfect. This time bacon was not cooked enough and steak was so rare she could not even cut it. Like it was raw. Bluecheese butter wouldn't even melt on top. She could not eat it. Also mashed potatoes tasted nothing like it used to and there was much less of them and were very bland and no carrots. What happened here??? They did not charge us for her meal since she could not eat it and left hungry. They offered to fix something else but she thought it would be the same.

    My ribeye steak dinner was good but my husband didn't think his scallop/prawn risotto was especially good (he didn't like the taste of the risotto) It was very expensive but what made it an enjoyable evening was the service, our server was exceptional!

    We had a party of 5 and everything we ordered was excellent! Our server, Adrianna was fantastic. Starters of wedge salad, French onion soup, and clam chowder were all great. Our entree's ranged from the short rib, filet with scampi, risotto, shrimp scampi pasta and a ribeye were all outstanding. No dessert this time, but food service and ambiance were all great as usual.

    Enjoyed a birthday dinner at Forbes Mill last night. Service was excellent…welcoming, warm, and attentive. Food was also excellent. We are not beef eaters but the blackened ahi tuna and the salmon were both delicious as well as the perfectly cooked generous side of asparagus . Although the salads were unremarkable, the spinach and artichoke dip was quite good. Our waitress brought a nice birthday plated dessert with candle for our birthday boy. Lovely, relaxing ambiance as well. Forbes Mill is definitely the best upscale restaurant in the whole area. We really enjoyed it!

    Another great meal with the family. The fillets were cooked to imperfection and melted in your mouth. And those cheesy potatoes are always one of our favorite sides. The ambience is always what a true steakhouse should be, dark and cozy!! The wait staff was very attentive and pleasant to work with as usual.

    From the hostess who was incredibly pleasant and sweet to our server Lauren who was knowledgable and genuine with her conversation. We loved the medium rare steaks, and the shrimp cocktail was just perfect with ground horseradish on top. Thank you for a wonderful end to our quick trip to the Danville area. Such a treat!

    Forbes Mill was excellent. The food we ordered was delicious. (Special of the day; Scallops with mango sauce over asparagus, 8 oz filet and mashed potatoes was amazing! Clam chowder and Pear & gorgonzola salad yummy as well.) Cocktails were on the small side and could be stronger if I suggest anything. Service by Adrianna was good as well. She was friendly, attentive to our needs and did not rush us through the courses. Overall, great evening.

    Amy was a great server and the martinis were spot on, just a fine dusting of ice chips on top. Steaks all cooked to perfection. My 8oz filet mignon was tender and flavorful. My wife had scallops and shrimp on risotto. She's a big scallop fan and the scallops were seared and hot, just the way she likes them. Dave got the grass fed filet and Mo got the ribeye. We got mushrooms and creamed spinach on the side as well as a couple of Caesar salads and calamari. everything excellent!
