Delicious food and phenomenal service as always! Jenny G was our server and she was outstanding! I always enjoy dining at Town.

Been eating here for years always switch up on the menu and have always been pleasantly surprised or entirely satisfied. If you face the grill you can watch poetry in motion as the chef orchestrates a well oiled kitchen staff and gets orders out like a Gatling gun.

We arrived 10 mins before our 5pm reservation and sat at the and ordered the sparkling pear martini. It was delicious and highly recommended. We were seated promptly to a table in front near the window. The restaurant up very quickly and the bar full well. Our service was fantastic. Corey provided recommendations and a free amuse potatoe croquet. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We ordered mini taco appetizers that were very tasty. I had asparagus risotto that was creamy and fresh. My husband ordered Bleu cheese fillet mignon, au gratin potatoes, and creamed spinach. Everything was delicious and prepared perfectly. We will definitely be back because there were so many things on the menu that we want to try.

Had a first date there, and it was an excellent choice. Food was good and the noise level was tolerable. Excellent service and extremely inviting. Definitely will return!

We went for a tasty brunch with a friend visiting out of town. The food was delicious and very rich. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

Second visit here. Food is standard American. Prices are slightly above average. Ordered a soup and a burger. Wife ordered a salad. Burger and salad came, no soup. Waitress serving the dishes (not the waiter who took the order), fell all over herself apologizing. A hostess came, apologized and offered a free soup. Not once did the robot who took the order apologize for the screwup. For that, I have to downgrade the place. I can't understand why this place is so popular (it was over half filled by 11:45 am). Food is ok, nothing special. Nothing special on menu. Plenty of better restaurants on Laurel Street. But people flock to it.

We stepped out of our box and decided to have the teriyaki flank steak,. Did not like it because we could not taste the beef it was like eating teriyaki. That being said, the mashed potatoes, onion rings salad was spot on. We also had a bottle of Silver Oak Cab Alexander Valley that was (surprisingly) also not that great it had a bite. We do love Town and we will be back for sure!!

So disappointed in the service. We sat for over 20 minutes before the wine we ordered when we sat down, arrived. That being said, the Teriyaki steak was delicious.

A great California style steak house in San Carlos. Love the place. My only issue is that the menu doesn't change often enough, so I've eaten almost everything on it. Otherwise, awesome place to get a great meal.

Service was not what I expected for Town. We waited too long to get service, drinks, food. Everyone else around us were equally waited on slowly. I received my order (simply a kale salad), but was served the wrong salad twice) and got my food well after my kids had eaten their food.

Loved the energy and vibe of TOWN. Food was great. Service was great. The one complaint we have though is the charge for water. REALLY???!!! I paid $24 for eggs benedict and you charge me 75 cents for water???!!!

Town always delivers great staff great food I recommend it to everybody.
Brunch is great!
The kids' options are fantastic for brunch, as long as you're OK with sweet brunch options (waffles, french toast, etc.) They are a far better value than the "adult" brunch options, as it turns out.

On the TOWN
We frequent Town about once a month and on special occasions. The food is stellar.
GREAT FOOD - COMFORTABLE PLACE
Food was great !!! Bread Pudding is a MUST TRY for dessert!!! Service was a little slow but think it is because they were slammed with customers. Be sure to make a reservation.

The food was delicious as usual. Our server JJ was fabulous. My friends were overjoyed with their personalized menus and the wonderful food and service.
Always a pleasant dining experience.
Excellent restaurant, but would liked to have had French bread and butter available with our wine. Also would appreciate having your excellent baked potatoes with a lunch steak (we've only had them with dinner steaks). Otherwise, it's always a pleasure dining at Town.

Incredible food and amazing cocktails! The house made tequila soda is the best!
One word - YUM
I don't frequent this place as often as I'd like, but when I do visit, I always know I'm in for a treat. Over the years, they've served consistently fantastic food with consistently friendly service. Perfectly broiled scottish salmon - crispy on the outside, juicy and tender on the inside. Creamed spinach with bits of savory bacon. Beets with crumbled goat cheese. The bread pudding is hot and sweet and soooo satisfying. I'm a darn good cook but these people put magic in their food that keep me coming back for more. I love this place!
My friend and I both ordered the tuna tataki salad. I thought there was way too much ginger in it. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive in the beginning, but we had to get her attention to ask for our check and then she never came back to take my credit card. I had to go inside and look for her but couldn't find her so ask the hostess to ring me up because we needed to get back to work.
Service was excellent! As well as the food! Made a Birthday very special with a personalized menu. Wonderful touch!

The food & ambience was awesome!! It was our first time there and will definitely be back. The service could improve, however
Wife's birthday. Waiter could not have been more helpful from the wine selection to the take-home containers. Restaurant handled a surprise gift from our grandchildren along with very special desserts very nicely. Oh, and the food was very good, as well.

On a warm night, there is no place I'd rather be than Town. The most lively place on the Peninsula & the food never disappoints. One of our absolute favorites.
You can count on a Town to be excellent all the time. The food is creative and delicious. Service us friendly. Great wine and cocktails.
