The wife and I went with friends. We had been there many years ago and enjoyed the experience. Went there this time and ENJOYED the experience. Our waiter, Antonio and his right hand man Chris were on their A game. Service was outstanding. The martini was a martini, not half a martini at a full martini price as is becoming... More

Let me start with something positive. We recently celebrated our son's birthday here and I must say our waitress was kind. Unfortunately, I should let my voice drop after that. My son ordered prime rib and was told they didn't have any left (it was only 7:00?) He then ordered a rib steak, it came out squishy raw, not even... More

The best steak I have ever had is the Forbes Mill "Blackened Ribeye" in Danville! I never order ribeye but our son-in-law advised us to try it here.....and now we order it every time we dine here! Tender steak with blue cheese, caramelized onions, demi-glace, mashed potatoes. Yummmm! Really, really good!

We celebrated a 40th birthday at Forbes Mill. The food was excellent, the atmosphere, with the service were wonderfull. The service personnel were helpful and thoughtful, yet never overbearing.It is the kind of place one will always come back to just for the happy feeling that the evening generates .

My family and I dined at Forbes Mill consistently during our 7 years living in San Ramon, CA. This was the "go-to" spot for all of our birthdays and my wife and my wedding anniversary. I still get back to Forbes Mill whenever my travels take me to the Bay Area. It is an all-time favorite. One cannot pick a... More

Our son recently passed his final CA Architecture exam! We celebrated his achievement at Forbes Mill. We also celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary. The food was wonderful and we received excellent service. Try the appetizer combination platter. Very tasty! Each of our steaks were excellent and cooked to order along with the sides. We brought a 30 year old bottle... More

Had a very nice dinner with my wife here recently. I'd mentioned this was a wedding anniversary when making the reservation. Got a special welcome, plus a nice touch with our names printed on the 'custom' prixe-fixe menu handed to us. We started off with a beet salad and french onion soup. Both very nicely done, and rightly sized for... More

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.
