Salmon was great.
Their system was down so they could not apply gift cards. So they charged full amount and said would rectify gift cards after closing. So far that has not been done after two days.

The food was great and our waiter was very nice and friendly. We love steak so we went with the New York and the sides were also very delicious, I recommend the corn! Although my husband and I ordered our steaks medium rare, mine was fine, but my husband's was more on the medium/ medium-well side. Still tasted good! The bread pudding that they surprised my husband with for his birthday was amazing. We'd definitely come back!

First time at Town for lunch. We've gone a lot for dinners, and always love them. We didn't know what lunch would be like, but we weren't disappointed. Same delicious food, save great servers. The place was hopping! We sat outside on a Sat. afternoon, and every table was filled. Note to self: always make a reservation instead of showing up and hoping a table is free.

We celebrated a college graduation and Father’s Day. Everything about our meal was fantastic, from the food to the service. We’d especially like to give a shout out to our server. Unfortunately, we didn’t get his name, but he told us he has worked at the restaurant for 21 years and is originally from Turkey. What a great ambassador for the restaurant he is!

Dining at Town is always enjoyable with good servers and very good food. We enjoy the atmosphere and drive up from Los Gatos..it is worth the drive to us even though we are not meat eaters.

You will like dining at Town!

TOWN is our favorite Father's Day tradition. We know that we will be here every year. I make reservations at least a month in advance for the holiday because it's a hoppin' place on holidays. TOWN never disappoints! We love our yearly tradition and hope to keep doing it year after year! Thanks!

Took an out of town guest. Service was poor...we were ignored when we sat down, and it took 15 minutes for the server to offer to take our order, My order was not correct. The waiter never returned until it was time for the bill. Thought for what we ate and the poor service Town is very overpriced. I would not return if this is their "standard" service.

I can depend on this restaurant and love the power lunch where you can choose two dishes from a long list of selections for only $18. My friend and I both loved the sushi rolls. The shaking beef on rice and also the enchilada dish were delicious and enough to take home for dinner. Their bread pudding is tops. I always keep this classy restaurant on my list.

We had a wonder time celebrating my niece’s birthday. From the “Happy Birthday” detail on the the menu, the excellent service and the fabulous food, especially the bread pudding for dessert, I would definitely recommend this restaurant for any occasion and look forward to the next visit and celebration that is coming up. Great job Town!!!

Our table was available on arrival . The food was delicious, but the best feature was our server. She was pleasant, efficient, and observed someone at our table was opening a birthday card and surprised us with a dessert, candle and good wishes. Made our lunch perfect!

I’ve lived in San Carlos since 1996 and frequented A Tavola prior to the change to Town. Town was wonderful at first, but noticed the service and food declined with its popularity. My husband received a gift card to Town for his birthday so we went to dinner the other night and it was fabulous. I hope the owners are going back to their roots and providing great food with great service again.

Service was excellent! My sister wasn't happy with the temperature of the prime rib and they didn't have any other piece to her satisfaction. They replaced it with a Rib Eye steak cooked to her satisfaction. We were all happy. Her dinner was complimentary since she was the birthday girl and was the last one served. Thumbs up for service!

It was a warm night and we were seated inside, but they didn't have air conditioning so we were sticking to the booth seating and it was quite uncomfortable. Food was decent, but the service was quite slow. I wouldn't go back unless they turn on the air since this really effected the overall experience.

We love Town so much! Your Spicy Ahi Tuna Rolls and California Rolls are the best and the burgers and steaks are delicious as well as the Salmon, the tacos, and the Mac and cheese. But those white wine Sangrias are fantastic!!!!! We look forward to our next visit very soon!!

Great food! The California Roll is very different from the usual one, but real crab meat is nothing to complain about. The Napa cabbage salad is a must. Their steaks are always cooked to perfection. They were super accommodating this time since I had my 8 yr old nephew with me. The service was amazing support.

We had JJ waiting on us and he was attentive, efficient and just plain great!!! The food, as usual was 5 star. We loved that the menus had Happy Birthday on them for my husband and two sons! Very classy!
We always enjoy our time spent at Town!

Waiter was slow to take our order. We waited for about 20 minutes for someone to come to our table and take our drink order. It then took another 10-15 minutes for our waiter to return to take our food order. She did apologize for the wait. We received our food almost an hour after being seated. This is the first time this has ever happened at Town. Our meals were all very good.

We were comped for tardy main dish service which we really appreciated, as we weren't really aware that it took longer than usual. Food was tasty and well presented, but too heavy on the salt, especially the meats.

Love Town - Always have. The service is excellent. The food is incredible. I love the complimentary choice of regular and/or sparkling water. The desserts are delicious and enjoyable to share. The only complaint is the noise level, it does get loud as the evening progresses. This is THE go-to restaurant in San Carlos.

I hadn’t been there in awhile due to my last experience being negative- This visit was great. Our service was fantastic, the food was delicious and hot. Ready to go back regularly again. They had made changes but after talking to the manager, I understood why some of my favorites were now missing. I highly recommend it and am hoping for some items to be returned.

Went to Town for brunch. As usual everything was perfection. Eggs Benedict was tasty and moist. Belgium waffle was sweet and crispy on the outside and moist inside. And their special Town Bloody Marys were bloody well good. Highly recommended for brunch. And note there is public parking behind their building.
