My husband and I ate here on date night. It's classy and the service is fantastic. The food was outstanding. Forbes Mills is unique because it's high end yet laid back at the same time. If you make reservations far enough in advance they print your name and if you have one, special occasion. It wasn't my birthday the last... More

I have been going to Forbes Mill for years - when I can afford it. It is, obviously, not cheap, BUT it is priced more reasonably than some. Every time I have been there the service has been excellent. But the food has been even better. My wife and I have always had the meats prepared exactly the way we... More

We lived in Los Gatos for 27 years. This is the best restaurant in Los Gatos. It is also, surprisingly, my favorite steakhouse anywhere, and I have been to a lot of them all over the world. Like most good steakhouses, Forbes Mill is not cheap. We usually go there when we have out of town guests and for special... More

First of all our server was very good and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. That is about as much of the nice things I have to say about it. Ownership needs to be aware and take some ownership, If you are going to charge $59 for a "Dry Aged NY Strip", you might want to make sure it is... More

What I love the most about Forbes Mill is the service. It is spectacular, every time. The steaks are amazing (I always, always order the filet mignon - it's fabulous with the sautéed mushrooms as a side), as expected from a first-rate steakhouse, and I have yet to be disappointed by a dish - even the ahi tuna appetizer was...

The steaks were wonderful but small and expensive. It took forever to get served. There was a bar with walk-ups from the street coming in throughout lending a probably unintentionally casual feel to the whole place particularly given the prices.

I made reservation for Forbes Mill go my wife's and my 5 year wedding anniversary. They impressed at every turn. They customized a pre fix menu for us on a special menu congratulating our anniversary. And all of the food was delicious from salad to the wonderfully presented lava cake for dessert. What truly have this a 5 star rating... More

That was my second time in that restaurant in 2 months. Both experiences were the same. Say first, i am a beef lover, and i am very difficult to satisfy when we talk about steaks. So, I had (both times) the bone-in ribeye, cowboy cut (72$). Asked to be cooked Medium- or medium rare + That was cooked at the... More

My wife and I just had a wonderful dinner experience at Forbes Mill. We started with the Oysters Rockefeller. They were delicious, but a little small. Next, we split a very nice Pear & Gorgonzola salad. She ordered the center cut filet mignon and I had the Tajima Black Wagyu filet mignon. While hers was good, mine was superb. I... More
