Went for a business dinner after an afternoon of wine-tasting and relationship-building. It was the perfect cap for the day. Filet Oscar was outstanding. Cooked perfectly. Sides were fresh and tasty. And the Pappy. Don't forget the Pappy.

We went for a family event. We've been here several times over the years. The food was good, and service as well. It seems the restaurant decore has either changed or is dated; and not in a good way. We couldn't put our finger on...More

Classy fun, amazing food and service all make for a memorable evening with family. If you want fine beef, cooked exactly the way you want it, with wonderful side dishes, perfect wine pairing, and wonderful service, go to Forbes Mill. Simple clean classic decor, warm...More

The restaurant was awesome at making our anniversary feel special. They even let me drop off our wine a few hours ahead and kept it cool for us. The steaks were awesome (I recommend either Ribeye option), and the ambience is pretty good. I won't...More
