Town – Hot New Restaurant in San Carlos, CA

2022 Update:

Town in still going strong and it’s our favorite restaurant on the Peninsula. Since the Covid pandemic, Town has a large covered area for dining outside. Be sure to make a reservation because the restaurant is very popular and crowded, especially during weekends and peak dining times.

Here’s our initial review:

Since Town first opened in March 2006 in the Tivoli Building on Laurel Street, it been one of the most popular restaurants in San Carlos. The casual, yet elegantly-styled dining room features cozy leather booth seating in a dark, clubby atmosphere. Noise levels can be high, so don’t come here for quiet intimate conversation. Dining outside is a great option if you want a quieter atmosphere – we actually prefer it!

Town has an impressive menu, featuring Dry-Aged Steaks & Chops, Hand-Cut Filet Mignon and Prime Rib, Premium Fresh Seafood, Wood-Fired Grill and Rotisserie Chicken and Ribs, House Specialties and local organic produce. Our favorite is the Teriyaki Skirt Steak (a House Specialty) atop Garlic Mashed Potatoes topped with Crispy Onion Rings, surrounded by Green Beans. Town’s Signature Cut features a 24 oz. Porterhouse Steak for larger appetites. Desserts are yummy too, especially their Warm Bread Pudding. Enjoy an extensive selection of California, Washington and Oregon wines.

Restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner. Reservations are recommended. Expect a wait if you don’t have a reservation. Street parking is available on Laurel Street. There’s also a free public parking lot at the rear of the restaurant. Service is friendly and efficient. Prices are moderate-expensive.

Note: Visit Town’s sister restaurants – Milagros (Mexican) in Redwood City and Nola (New Orleans Cajun) in Palo Alto.
