I adore the staff and the food! I have been their countless times and even did one of my internships there after graduated in cooking school. The chef (Adam) is a very nice guy, and treats his cooks with a lot of respect. I can't wait to go again!

Forbes Mill in Danville has very nice atmosphere and great food. We have been there several times for both lunch and dinner, and have never been disappointed. The Kobe Sliders are a wonderful lunch choice, although everything we have had there has been great. There is one exception - the Ribeye Steak Sandwich was not that good since it had... More

This restaurant is truly first class. We have never been rushed even though we enjoy ordering one course at a time. Their steaks are the most flavorful and tender of any restaurant in Danville.

My first time was for a large group lunch. They had 1 waiter to serve over 30 people. It was a disaster. I have been several more times and the service was good. The food was also good. They were very accomaditing. I will go back again.

Had a wonderful dinner here, the Filet Mignon was very good along with the crab cakes. We were a large group, but got excellent service. The 3 sampler appetizer was great, had enough for everyone to try things. Would definitely recommend.

We went there on a weekend for a birthday dinner. Since we reserved ahead of time and told them about the event, they already have our special menu printed out with name and happy birthday wishes. The prefix was good, included a large desert. Then followed that with the complementary birthday desert! Haha, almost couldn't finish it. The fillet mignon... More

First time at the Danville location. I have been to the Los Gatos location many times. Usually, I don't have any issues finishing my meal at fine dining steakhouses in the bay area, but the portions here were pretty good. Had the prime rib and it came with a side of potatoes, which I did not expect. Food came out... More

Very cool dining experience I eat at Forbes a couple times a month and everyone is fantastic. Great Bar! Great Steaks the Jambalaya is probably the best you'll ever have. Forbes is on the high end of the price scale but I never seem to mind. I often bring my own wine because my tastes are a bit different, than... More
