I attended a retirement lunch at Forbes Mill and found the ambience to be top notch, plenty of vareity on the menu, and prices that were not too out of whack (lunch prices are significantly lower I guess). I ordered a tri-tip sandwich that came with garlic fries (and very garlicky). The meat was very tender and had sauteed peppers... More

The food is wonderful, but the waiter is even better. We always ask for Antonio. He takes great care of the whole family and makes you feel like you're at home. Pricy, but totally worth it. The filet oscar is to die for.

Which I would expect at the prices they charge. Similar to Vic Anderson's in Walnut Creek, it is not part of a 'chain', so the menu are a little more flexible. You will get a really good meal, but when you get the bill, you will think to yourself " yikes, well it wasn't THAT good.

Went for dinner to celebrate our daughter's 17th birthday. Wonderful experience. Our server, Colin, was exceptional. Food was great. Little touches, like a menu personalized with our daughter's name and happy birthday wishes, raised the bar. Rating of 4 is the best you can get from me unless the entire meal is life changing, so FM rates way up there!

I couldn't ask for a better meal and wine pairing. What a treat!!! This was a special meal because we had a 5 course meal paired with a variety of wines. The waitress was knowledgeable on all the wines and the pairings truly brought out the best in the all the flavors we savored. I would choose this restaurant again... More

This is our go-to restaurant to celebrate. Food is uniformly great. Special requests are handled graciously. Service is outstanding. The wine list is extensive. The Prix Fixe menu for the month is usually amazing with its carefully selected flight of wines.

Every part of our experience at Forbes Mills was excellent, from the greeter to the service to the food. One of my favorite restaurants.

Met my NCAL local cousin for dinner here - first time for us both. We truly enjoyed the great and attentive service from our Brazilian waitress. Food and wine were excellent.

I had diner at Forbes Mill Steakhouse quite a few times already. Every time I found the staff to be attentive and the food to be quite good. They serve typical american style skeahouse fine which is just fine when you want to eat half a ton of juicy beef. We once had a little problem on one request (I... More
