So the Forge is over 40 years old. Lots of history throughout the years. Yet our server was only 20 years old!! Yes, 20 I repeat! But that didn't stop him from proving top class service from top to bottom. From recommendations on wine, food pairings, and cocktail and beer selections he knew his stuff. The Forge is back and...

Love the meat here, best steak I've ever had, my husband is a steak "expert" and he has the same opinion. French beans are amazing as well. Nice decor and romantic atmosphere.

Phenomenal restaurant, service and food. No matter what reason you are dining out, it could only be made better by dining at The Forge. I have been several times and it is always outstanding. The ambiance is comfortable yet high end, the food is simply the finest and the servers are professional.
