Town Ratings and Reviews
Our family celebrated my wife's birthday at Town. This restaurant has a great reputation, and it has a great, energetic atmosphere. I was little disappointed in the food, however. The ribs I ordered were a little too charred, and it seemed like the grill had not been sufficiently cleaned before the ribs were cooked, as there was a kind of burned aftertaste. Also, our server forgot one of my son's sides.
Always looking for a new restaurant among the hundreds in the Bay Area for a unique experience and Town delivered. The service at both bar and table was beyond outstanding with the waiters having a great sense of humor which made dinner fun and engaging (along with those great jalapeno deviled eggs).
Thanks for the experience!
Salmon was overcooked, carrots were mix of raw and cooked
Ribeye was good, but flavor didn't really come through
Ordered a side of fries which tasted like they had been sitting for some time/ end of the batch
Dessert was awesome-- a complementary bread/butter pudding for a birthday
Waiter was attentive
Service was a little slow. The food took a long time even with the appetizer in between. Most of the dishes were served warm and seems like they were sitting for a little while. It seemed like we had to prompt the server for the remaining side dishes. Otherwise, the food tasted great. Just a little disappointed as I compare it to my past visits to this restaurant.
Town offers just about everything one could ask for in a "go to" restaurant: delicious comfort food that is well prepared, a friendly (and kid friendly) atmosphere, good service, and fair prices. Our waiter, in particular, was super warm and friendly, not to mention totally accommodating in meeting the needs of a toddler in our party. This restaurant is a winner.
It was my boyfriend's birthday and took him out to a nice steak dinner. We had the New Orleans BBQ Shrimp and they were amazing. The sauce had Cajun seasoning and the shrimp was cooked to perfection. Wish we would have had more bread to sop up the sauce. He had the bone in rib eye-medium rare and I ordered the surf and turf - medium rare as well. For sides we had mac n cheese, French fries, asparagus and garlic lime chili. His rib eye came out as ordered and was delicious. My lobster was also cooked perfectly - it melted in your mouth. My filet mignon on the other hand came out medium instead of med/rare. Our server questioned whether it wasn't cooked properly and asked me to cut it in the middle. And yes, it was medium (barely any pink in the center). She took it and while I waited she brought me back a tiny cup of their soup of the day (red pepper bisque) which was delicious. When she returned with a new filet mignon, it was cooked properly. The sides were not great (mac n cheese was dry, fries were not warm when they came out, chili garlic green beans were over cooked and too sweet)..the only standout was the asparagus. For dessert we had the bread pudding which was also very good. It was a lot of food and the dessert was complimentary since it was a birthday celebration. We will be back for another date night.
Town is by far my favorite restaurant in the area. Consistently excellent food, outstanding service, and always a great vibe for brunch, HH and dinner. I really appreciate good, attentive service and Town never disappoints. It's not cheap, but portions are big, giving you more bang for your buck and you can always take half home for another meal. Reservations are recommended and fill up fast, especially on the weekends. Try the bread pudding if you have room for dessert - delicious!
Great restaurant, food and service.
Restrooms are horrible. Too small and fixtures are broken. It is ridiculous that they are sooooo successful and are not spending the dough rey meeee to upgrade their restrooms. They are used by 6 poeple every two minutes and desperately need upgrading.
Town is a great place to have lunch or dinner, for dinner it is a bit noisy at times. I had to get up and ask a vulgar drunk at the end of the bar to tone it down, he was quite loud. I have had the creamed spinach every time we have had dinner at Town, however, this time the creamed spinach was so salty I had to send it back. It was almost as if someone had placed extra salt in the spinach, I don't know if other diners experienced the same issue.
I and my wife really love Town resturant and will return.
We have been to Town a few times, and are very pleased with the quick service and plentiful entrees. There are so many sides to choose from to complete your steak . Server was attentive, yet not over-bearing to our needs. Prime rib was very good. Because we were celebrating a birthday, our server brought us a candle-lit dessert to share. I'm glad Town is in the Open Table gift card program since we have a few of those from our generous children.
Yikes! I hope this was an off night for the restaurant. The service was poor and our order was done incorrectly (undercooked, almost raw meat and wrong side). The delight at the end of the evening was someone getting seriously ill in the women's restroom. The meal was a few hundred dollars, but the experience was more like Applebees than a five-star restaurant.
