This is one of my favorite steak houses on the penninsula. Jeremy has been a top chef here for many years and pete and spanish lulu? are great bartenders. Go with petes pink slip or lulu's/ pomegranite maritnie. The steak is awesome

Man o man, these are some fantastic Bloody Marys. If you can't imagine anything better than that, order it with the jalapeno crab cake eggs benedict. Pure heaven. If you're the kind that can't decide, they also make a combo benedict - one with steak, with crab and a traditional. For kids, they have cookie dough waffles. I know I'm... More

Always very busy, the bar is in the center of the restaurant and tends to draw a louder crowd. Service has always been excellent and the food expertly prepared. Reservations are must and well worth the short wait. There is an upstairs banquet room for private parties.

Great spot in San Carlos! We live right around the corner from their sister restaurant in RWC, Milagros, and the Town was a much more diverse menu offering. Their Red Beer was phenomenal and the food was delicious!

My husband took me here on my birthday, I was stunned when I saw a personalized birthday message with the date on our menus. I can't imagine better personalized service. The food was similarly outstanding--butternut squash soup (with a gongonzola or blue cheese twist and nuts on top)--the best we've eaten and this is a go to soup of ours.... More

This is the BEST restaurant in San Carlos and one of the best on the Peninsula. The food, service, atmosphere, and bar are perfection every time! Cheers!

My daughter and I decided last minute to go to Town for brunch on Saturday. We could have waited for a table, but they gave us the option to sit at the bar and we took it. We were treated wonderfully there and were fed promptly. Our drinks and food (french toast, waffle, bacon) were all delicious. I'll be happy... More

My favorite place in the area. The food is terrific, as is the pomegranate martini. The only thing I don't love is the steak with the horseradish..it's just a puck of horseradish on a steak. Weird. Rest of the menu is great; you can't go wrong. Service is solid.

The drinks were taken off the bill and we stayed and enjoyed our time together. Two thumbs up to Igor and the manager for their immediate response and we hope that Igor does not get in trouble. I have been to this restaurant in the past and the staff is always professional and the food wonderful.

I have never had a bad meal here! Steaks are excellent! My family always gets some type of seafood and loves it too!
