The name speaks for itself..well sort of. Food is very flavorful including their bread. We all had seafood as entrees and they were delicious. Prices are on a higher side. Good place to bring a date. Cozy and romantic. Has a big bar and very interesting looking bathroom. Our waiter was great too. Wasn't too pleased with our valet service.

One of our favourite nights in the states, this restaurant had it all - attentive staff, lovely surroundings, delicious food, and family friendly. We still talk about our experience here months later (I think I might still stink of garlic!!), it was fabulous. A friend recommended this restaurant to us, we wouldn't have known about it otherwise, and it was... More

Been here with family and took my boyfriend on our recent trip. Really great food with lots of garlic, obviously! Thought the waiter rushed us a little but apart from that everything was good!

A very nice restaurant with good food. Maybe a bit overpriced, but you are paying for the special decoration and it is worth it. Staff is friendly, there is (only) valet parking for $5.50.

My wife doesn't like my smell when I eat garlic (she smells it through my skin), so when she was out of town over Father's Day weekend, I took my two sons with me to eat here. The bagna calda: garlic in olive oil, butter and anchovy, is by itself worth going here. The garlic was very soft, mashed easily... More

This place was excellent. The food was delicious and everything is served or made of garlic. Serving sizes are perfect and the restaurant is kid friendly as well. The restaurant is very busy in the evenings and definitely would recommend a reservation. I went during lunch on a week day and it was empty. A piece of Beverly Hills and... More

For a $200 dollar meal, the fondue appetizer, they only gave us 4 crackers, thank god for the bread basket. The prime rib was good, not outstanding, just mediocre. The creamed spinach was canned spinach which I felt could have been fresh using local resources. Portion sizes are small for the price. We ordered "fried crab" with our steaks, it... More

I loved the ambiance and everything about this restaurant. There's even a lounge type area for casual dinning if you aren't with a group or your family. I was out alone and it suited me perfectly. Vegetarians might want to give it a pass as the menu is mostly meat. If you eat fish, there's plenty to love. My seat... More

Had tickets to see the Pointer Sisters at the Saban Theater and not knowing the area, decided to check out the area. Once we saw the Stinking Rose we knew where to try! We had the garlic rolls with the garlic relish, Hmm Good! Followed by, you guessed it, MORE GARLIC on pasta! We were that we wouldn't be admitted... More
