Butter Please!!! ;)

This place deserves the #1 spot on yelp! It is pretty awesome! Service & menu options. Not to mention the vibe! Chef Peter Dominguez rocks! His team is just amazing to watch (we were sitting at the chef's bar) Will be back... Rock on Town!

Excellent meal - order medium rare and perfect. Still red in the center - brown on the out with some herbs. Request the small cut 10 oz and I am sure it was a generous 10 oz. Didn’t have a reservation – explain we had a plane to catch (red-eye flight to Canada). Seated within 30 minutes when the projected... More

Love this restaurant! Everything we ordered was delicious, from the Benedict to the chicken and waffles. Try their bacon for a special sweet/salty treat. Great service and atmosphere. We always being our parents here when they visit and have never been disappointed. Reservations recommended as it books up fast.

This place is amazing. One of the best in San Carlos and even San Mateo County. They will even customize your menu for you. I go when I'm in the area and I've went now a few years in a row for my birthday and the service is wonderful. Our waitress Kirsten was such a sweetheart during our last visit.... More

On the expensive side but I go here all the time and enjoy many dishes. My fav's are the BBQ shrimp app, the deviled eggs, and the bone in rib-eye!

I adore this restaurant! It's our "go to" place when we want a special dinner, when we celebrate birthdays, etc. My husband and I celebrated our small wedding there with a dinner. The staff could not have been more accommodating. They placed the table where we wanted it, they had no problem with having a friend order special flowers for... More

What a buzz! The service and food were terrific. Loved the appetizers, and the steak was cooked to perfection. Must have the bread pudding.

The food at Town is delicious. My personal favorites are the warm napa cabbage salad and the prime rib and I can't leave with out ordering the bread pudding. The wait for a table can be quite long, so I suggest making reservations.
