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

We messed up our reservation but staff was able to get us two seats at the counter. The food was truly awesome and wait staff was casual and funny. It’s got a lot of energy so not the place for a quiet dinner. Cocktails were...More

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.
