We had diner on a Sunday evening with reservations and were seated immediately. Forget the price, it is well worth it. The filet can be cut with a fork, the sides (creamed spinach and asparagus) were delicious and the Chocolate Pot-au-Creme was to die for....More

Steaks are good, but not exceptional. Prices are way too high for the quality, especially when they nickel and dime ( or $5 and $10 ) for the basic side dishes.

I had a business dinner with a customer and four other associates. The meal was good and flavorful. It is a good place for a business meeting because the noise level is low and the ambiance was slightly dark and professional. I had the filet...More

Excellent dining experience. The meals were served hot and they were very good. Nice ambiance, too. If you want a special dinner, this is one place to go in Los Gatos.

Really good meet with original entrees. I highly recommend the Blackened rib eye. The seasoning is just fantastic. Only down side is that it is really loud!

We had come to Los Gatos, to dine at Manresa, and were playing all other dining by ear. I have to admit that what drew us to Forbes Mill Steakhouse was their wine list, and we are glad that it did. We were promptly seated...More

It's rare for us to down-grade a restaurant for its poor service because the quality of the meal is a higher priority. However last month's service was appalling. Our waiter told us that bread would be coming right away, but it didn't until after our...More

Top-drawer steakhouse - good salad, steaks, sides, and dessert. Very good service, too. The Blackened RibEye was perfectly done, and a large serving. Coupled with the Wedge salad and Creamed Spinach (with BACON!), I didn't have to eat for 24 hours!
