I wanted the Dungeness Crab and I had one. The two pound crab is too much for one person and I am very very greedy. I ended up taking it back to my hotel and eating the rest later. My mother and cousin thoroughly enjoyed their chicken and my niece enjoyed her shrimp. The problems that I had were all... More

Having been to the Original Sticking Rose in San Francisco a few years ago, I was thrilled to realise that there was another one in Beverly Hills, so we planned to visit there during our trip to LA. I have to say I was really disapointed. The charm of the SF restaurant is the cosy atmosphere where all the locals... More

I take a restaurant run a few times a year, visiting other cities and trying as many Food Channel and Travel Channel featured restaurants as possible. In early October it was the Los Angeles area I was sampling. Of the dozen or so restaurants I tried, The Stinking Rose was by far my favorite. Everything they have has garlic in... More

I used to love to go here when I was married and boy was I disappointed now. It is so poorly managed I'm surprised it can even stay in business anymore. It is screaming MAKEOVER. There was no happy hour, hence only a couple of people in the bar. I know this location is expensive but I feel ripped off... More

iF YOU love garlic, this is the place to be. My Husband took me here for my Birthday and I must say, he scored a 10 in every area that night. wink wink. Very ROMANTIC & PRIVATE if that's how you like it. This is one place I truly recommend.

Vampires beware, there is garlic in everything but the coffee :o). A totally awesome lunch with two great friends. The Dungeness Crab with sides was delicious, flavourful and worth every penny. The atmosphere is beautiful and the seating can be private. The service was beyond great. In the evening they have valet service. They are closing this location in April... More

The wonderful smell of sizzling meat and garlic permeate the air as you walk through the festive and fun Chambers. Be sure to wander around and check out the entire restaurant. One of the most elaborate is Dracula's Grotto in the far back corner. This theme restaurant has a fun character feel – especially when the staff put on the... More

Overall the food is good but too much garlic. This restaurant is good to be visited for a casual lunch with friends. Needs a little upgrade on the entrance. The bread is good, the fondue is excellent.

The Stinking Rose was a wonderful place to have a great dinner. It's specialties are all deliciously garlic flavored or "Vampire Fare" for those who didn't want garlic. The menu down to the garlic ice cream with a mole sauce was really yummy!. The restaurant has the perfect aroma (not stinking) and the flavor of every dish from its wonderful... More
