To my taste, it's a perfect upscale restaurant. The food is incredible: there were six of us, and we all agreed that their fillet mignon was the best we ever had. The same can be said about sea bass. The place has just the right...More

Delicious food and outstanding service. I only wish that they had soy or almond milk for the coffee!

Second time at Town for dinner with friends and the food and service were exceptional. Our waiter, Jay Jay, was really amazing and suggested some excellent entrees and even exceptional wine for one of our picky guests! The filet was perfectly cooked and the bottle...More

I'm not a fan of Town. The food has almost always been really good, it is a great place for a drink and it has a lively atmosphere. To me Town is out of place in San Carlos. It would be perfect for San Francisco...More

A very popular eatery on the Peninsula. Make a reservation unless you are willing to walk in early. Good service, variety on menu, only 2 draft beers but many cocktails. We walked in and were told when we needed to be finished.

The food here is always good and the wine selection is great. The service is friendly and knowledgeable. The noise level can be daunting at times, so look for a back room table.

The food was great, but the restaurant was too loud. The service was great. The bar was packed. Outside dining is a plus.

This restaurant was a winner in all ways. Service was very attentive, menu was appealing and food was very good. They have outside seating also (although it's a busy thoroughfare so it was a bit noisy) which is a nice treat during summer months.

I go there often, just for cappuccino and dessert. They still serve coffee, drinks, and desert even after the kitchen shuts down for the night.
