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

Hostess snooty, server rushed, $17 hamburger well-done when ordered rare, server not available to send it back, soggy French fries, 15+ minutes to get check. Try at your own risk.

Town has solid food, great service, and reasonable prices considering they dominate the "scene" in downtown san carlos. It can be loud at dinner, but it is a happening place!

My wife and I, our son and daughter-in-law, and 3 grandsons, all under 10, dined here on Labor Day weekend and it was a real treat. Our server Natalie was friendly and very tolerant of our boisterous party. The food was served quickly, was prepared correctly and tasted great. I will definitely return.

For any occasions, Town is your safe bet in SC, it is not cheap, but the food is very good and the atmosphere is great, it is a fun pace to visit for some drinks and appetizers as well as a full meal.

This is a regular stop for me when I'm in the bay area. The food is always good. A little disappointed with my last visit due to a sleight of hand by the waiter. I ordered two bottles of wine, he brought out two and had me taste one and had another person taste the second, which - was not... More

Too loud. Not good for families, unless you yell. The bar and TVs are the central focus, which takes away from the open kitchen if you sit on the bar side. Food is just ok.
