Truly excellent dining experience! Our first-time last week even though we are longtime Danville residents. Just thought it was just "another" Steak House and it was something much, much more! The service experience was excellent but the food "was to die for"! Can't remember when my wife & i have have been more pleased with the quality of the presentation,... More

It's a steakhouse and a good one. Even when it is booked during busy times of year you can almost always find a spot at the bar area and get the same expeditious service as you would in the main dinig hall. That is a requirement when arriving with small hungry children.

Husband took me here for our anniversary. We ordered steaks, of course! Best steak I ever tasted. Perfectly cooked and flavorful. The service was very attentive and efficient. We were worried we wouldn't get a decent seat without reservations, but they took us in almost immediately. Highly recommend for special occasions with your sweetie!

WOW...the service was great. The food was exceptional. So we had a combo of meat lovers and veggie lovers. My husband had the filet...perfectly executed. I AM a meat lover but not so much in the mood tonight...so enjoyed the Lettuce Wedge Salad, then the "split" veggie sides of mashed potatoes and aspargus. Oh this was fantastic and flavor flavor...

Went there for dinner and got the worst table possible near the door - Over priced food with awful service - Much better options available in Danville if you want a high end meal -

We enjoyed a nice evening meal with 8 in attendance, pleasant ambiance, good wine selection, but a bit on the Napy, tourististy side for my liking. The Napa selections are great for the penicillia high brows, techies and tourist, but given most of California's truely amazing wines aren't grotesquely overprices under performing Napa swill, they'd do well to refresh there...

I had lunch yesterday with a few friends. It was, once again, excellent! I had the Kobe sliders for a third time. They are EXCELLENT! The meat is to-die-for! The onions, rolls, etc. - it's all an amazing mouth of deliciousness! The french fries were crisp & hot & perfectly salty. The pour of wine is more than the usual... More

The steaks were tender and tasty if a little over cooked, medium rare was actually medium and medium was actually medium well. We had a side of mushrooms which were fresh and nice, the Dauphinoise potatoes however were obviously a bit old. Table rolls were also old and had been reheated. Service was great and the overall experience was OK... More

This was the first time my husband & I have been to Forbes Mill for dinner. It was good, but not excellent. We were with another couple who was visiting here. I was really looking forward to a delicious steak, but mine was ok, not great, For $48, it should have been the most delicious steak I've ever had. I... More
