Good food and pleasant ambience

This restaurant is a long-established presence in its prominent location near the Grand Theatre on trendy Richmond Street in London. Food is good, at reasonable prices in a pleasant, bright decor. Service is fast and friendly. Definitely worth a return visit.

Food here is always great. Dinner is a little pricey but well worth it. We go for lunch regularly- great burger and the prosciutto pizza is incredible.

We chose Garlics for our pre-theatre dinner partly because of their participation in Londonlicious. I chose an appetizer of duck confit with gnocchi, an entree of salmon, and a lemon tart dessert. The cost for all three delicious courses was $35. Although the restaurant was very busy, service was impeccable. This restaurant is a perennial favourite.

We got some appetizer it was basically a munchie platter but with crazy exotic stuff like figs and moose sausage. We ordered the beef... More

The food is good, not super, but good. The one area where this place really shines is the service. I can not recall our servers name, however I will say he was fantastic from start to finish. Always nice to have that in a place regardless of how good the food is.

It was a very busy place for a Saturday lunch. Great menu. Our server was very attentive. The appetizer - the garlic parmesan frites were excellent and came soon. There was a bit of a wait for the entrees. Excellent presentation. Nice décor. Accommodated Gluten Free well I am glad I was talked into trying the garlic icecream

Went to Garlics before a show next door at the Grand with some friends. The food was excellent! We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and deserts, although they had run out of crème Brule! The presentation of the plates and the atmosphere were perfect for the crowd going to see a show. Our server was professional and knew her stuff.... More

I walked in and was seated immediately. After ordering, we waited over an hour for our main dish. Yes, over an hour. When the dishes came out, it seemed like the plate was hotter than my meal. My meal wasn't even that great. I'd think after waiting an hour and 15 minutes, my food would be amazing but it was... More
