Food was good, portions small though and expensive for what it was. Valet parking of $5.50 on top of a meal that cost$180 ( one glass of house wine) felt excessive

My Husband and I with our two teenage daughters went to LA for the week. As soon as we passed by this restaurant I went on line to check it out and they had me at garlic. We loved it! My daughter had the pesto garlic pizza and it was soooo good. My youngest had the pasta with asparagus and... More

This was suggested by a local to us tourist. We loved it. From the funky atmosphere, to the fab bread-garlic of course to every meal at the table. We couldn't decide who had the best meal -we loved them all. Mussels, pizza, pork chop, sea bass and 40 clove chicken. Huge portions. Price $20-30. The decor is fun, cool art,... More

If you go here, you WILL end up with garlic breath. The garlic sauce is addictive and the garlic chicken is worth ordering. Save room for desert.

Meet with visitors from Denmark and had a great time. First we enjoyed dinner - I had the baby back ribs and my friends had two different pasta dishes.. All was excellent. After dinner we went to the bar and had a couple of drinks to live piano music.

The interior design is quite unique. The setting is very cozy with individual cabanas that can be closed for romantic dinners as well as comfy booths. The food is delicious especially if you are a garlic lover. The short rib is my favorite along with the pasta, ribs and shrimp dish. Be sure and try the garlic ice cream, an... More

I took my staff here for a farewell lunch and the decor is very original and makes for a good afternoon. The food was good but on the expensive side for the quality.

Fun restaurant, great decor and a love of garlic make this a pleasant dining experience. I had the prime rib and my wife had the short ribs. Both were excellent. Great cocktails also. No corkage fee if bringing your own wine.

The food and service was great! I was a little apprehensive to stop by for dinner because of their name but I'm glad I took the risk. Their Salmon was amazing in taste and it was very tender. Our server Aaron was great too!

Whenver I am in LA I make a point to stop at the Stinking Rose. I absolutely love garlic and they do a great job of making delicious cusine that is layered in garlic flavors. After two visists I have tried the Garlic Prime Rib and most recently the filet mignon. I also sampled the Garlic Gnochi which is out... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
