Had a business dinner at Town last week. Ambiance and service were first rate. Food was very good with one pretty major issue - we had a table of nine and five of the steaks had to be sent back because they were overcooked. Mine came back overcooked a second time and I chose to eat it because the other... More

We went to Town, again, just last week for a late lunch on Black Friday. We were able to sit outside where they had the heat lamps going and it was very comfortable. The waitress was very nice, and the food did not disappoint. We ordered the Chilean sea bass which was cooked and seasoned perfectly. We also ordered the... More

My husband and I had a fabulous dinner at Town last nite. We were running late and called the host. He held our reservation for forty five minutes. We ordered a New York steak medium rare. Our server Tony was the absolute best ever. He was attentive yet didn't hover or interrupt our conversation. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary... More

Went there on a business dinner with some collegues. I had the filet mignon with dungeness crab, others had the surf and turf and, what can I say, we all were delighted, but the best was yet to come. They serve a hot fudge sundae to bathe in. So the Town in certainly one of the best places in town... More

People wonder why we don't "go to the City" for great food. Town delivers all that the great steakhouses offer, with comfortable inside and outside seating. Families? Yes, come earlier or try their phenomenal brunches. Business meals? Definitely. Looking to encounter someone special? This too.

I've been to Town many times and consider myself fortunate as a San Carlos resident to have this restaurant in my city. Comparing the food to other places in Palo Alto and San Francisco, I'd rate Town on par with all of the best places. Items that are REALLY good: Mixed Drinks- As a creature of habit, I usually drink... More

My friends and I gather about once every 6 weeks for brunch. This is our GO TO spot. We always have exceptional service and a tasty meal. I highly recommend this for a great meal to enjoy with friends.

A friend and i came here for lunch and really enjoyed the food and the service. We had a little bit of a wait because there was an Art & Wine Festival going on. When we put our names in, the host and hostess were very pleasant. We started at the bar with a drink and then once they call... More

Town has a lot to offer. Fish, Steak, Chicken and fabulous Desserts. A great Risotto dish for the vegetarian too. I had the Salmon. It was beautifully prepared and excellent tasting. Other members of our party had the Steak and Halibut. All raved on the quality and taste. If you like Bread Pudding, order it. I am not a fan... More

We tried Town again a few weeks back, and again were disappointed. There are some interesting, distinctive dishes, but it always seems to be about $150 for two, which is just not worth it. The crowd is lively, but at the same time the vibe is somehow stiff and snooty. At their bar, they do that thing, where when you... More
