TOWN is consistently delicious! I have never had anything on the brunch, lunch, or dinner menus that I didn't find very satisfying. My GoTo is the ribeye on the bone...done to perfection every time!!

This is a fabulous restaurant. It was quite busy, yet we were able to get an outside table on a warm Sunday night. Even with a substantial misstep, it was a superior experience. We began with some good cocktails and my wife enjoyed the pomegranate martini so much that we've been striving to duplicate it at home. Our server was... More

I stayed in the SF Bay area for business and we met at the Town for dinner. There is a large car park in the back of the restaurant and one can enter through the back door. The restaurant was very full for a Tuesday night, with many guests waiting at the bar to be seated. The interior is very... More

Had a lovely steak dinner here on a Sunday evening. Price was very reasonable for a high end steakhouse- $38 for NY strip with 2 sides included. Service was spot on! Would recommend and planning on visiting again when my business travels bring me back to San Carlos.

My wife and I visited Town after a recommendation from our daughter, who lives in San Carlos. When we made reservations we were told the restaurant was primarily a steak house, but had good fish dishes. Since we wanted fish, we opted for Salmon (my wife) and the Chilean Sea-Bass special that is on the menu. My wife thought her... More

Was here for a private cocktail party followed by dinner. The service was excellent and the servers were very attentive. The finger foods and the main meal was good too. I especially liked their hot deserts - very creamy but not too filling.

Stayed in San Carlos before a meeting. Chose this restaurant as it was packed on a Monday night when all of the other local places were either closed or had few patrons. My co-worked and I sat at the bar and enjoyed a drink before dinner. We ended up staying at the bar while watching the giants game to enjoy... More

Town is our family's favorite restaurant! We love the food, especially the desserts. It's always delicious. The service is great. The prime rib, the skirt steak, the salmon...is fabulous. But we really just go their for the bread pudding...

Went on a Tuesday evening, made reservation 3 weeks in advance. This place is very busy, great service and good wine&food. We had crispy garlic cauliflower, Surf & Turf, pistachio crusted Alaskan halibut & 6 layer chocolate cake, all good!
