The food was good but the overall experience was just ok... The place was busy with a number of people at the bar. Our waiter was very attentive. They were so efficient that our salads were served before our wine. I felt a bit rushed as I like to have a chance to taste and enjoy the wine alone. The food all tasted good but was not healthy, both the soup and salad dressing were very rich. The restaurant was expensive. I might return for drinks at the bar but probably would not eat here.

I have to say I have been to Town many times and never been disappointed. But this last visit was the best ! 10oz Prime Rib medium rare to perfection, side of the house Mac&Cheese plus a great view of the guys at work in the kitchen. Treated myself to their Bread & Butter pudding too, fantastic, if you are looking to go you need to book at least a week ahead or you may be disappointed cos you don't get in !

PS thats the only disappointment you will get . . .

This is a noisy, high energy, always full, trendy place that we have enjoyed in the past. It is not for the cognoscenti of fine dining but rather is for yuppies who have graduated from McDonalds. Our last visit was a lunch fiasco. We had a yearning for meat and ordered "tenderloin" hamburgers, which we have thoroughly enjoyed in the past because they were thick and juicy. No longer! The patties were small, thin, over cooked and full of gristle! It was like chewing pieces of rubber! We complained and added that the menu was terribly misleading, the burger patty was not "tenderloin". The manager countered that the burgers had beef tenderloin "trimmings" in the meat! Needless to say, he "comp'ed" us. Their business plan appears to have changed, I myself would be reluctant to return. If you go, be wary.

This is an excellent choice if you find yourself on the Mid Peninsula in the San Francisco Bay Area. Although many reviewers love the meat dishes, the fish preparations are equally good. If it is a nice day and you can snag an outside table, consider yourself lucky. Our reservations have always been honored and, unlike some places, always on time! Be prepared, this is a lively place and can be quite noisy. This place caters to business diners but couples and friends also requent it. I would NOT bring kids here although some folks do.
