OMG is all I can say, this place is phenom!! There is a roasted garlic app that's to die for and the chicken I had was fantastic. In addition to being great food, the staff here is so nice! At least the ones that I dealt with when I visited. I have learned that this is a rare thing in... More

I went to this restaurant for my birthday and wasn't disappointed. I had eaten at the one in San Francisco last year and haven't stopped thinking about it. It was the first time I had ever had Dungeness Crab. What a fabulous meal! My companions meals were all fabulous as well, from the pastas to the Seafood Soup. Yummy!

My sister recommended this restaurant to me and I am so glad that she did. The food was delicious. Try one of the sizzling dishes you won't regret it.

This restaurant is really interesting - there is circus tents inside, and stars on the ceiling. However, this does not detract from the amazing (garlic focused) food on the menu. As a starter the bread rolls arrive (warm) with a fresh garlic and herb oil. Lets just say that after that it is good everyone is eating garlic together, as... More

We spent 8 night in LA and this was the best food we had the whole time. We are garlic lovers so this was heaven to us, the prime rib was HUGE and so juicy! The waiter was so lovely and the atmosphere was perfect, it was busy but still felt intimate because of the way the booths are set... More

If you love garlic, this place is for you. From the minute you arrive you can smell the garlic aroma in the air, and once you get to your table they quickly bring over the most amazing bread and garlic spread. We also got the garlic & oil dip which was really good. For our meals we had the meatloaf... More

My husband and I dined at The Stinking Rose on February 28, 2014. This was my first time dining at the Beverly Hills location. The individual canopied tables are charming and add privacy for an intimate dining experience. The food was average at best. I had the short ribs which the waiter recommended and my husband had the lamb shank.... More

After only being off our flight from Florida for an hour we managed to make it here for our first try at lunch after having a remarkable dinner here six months ago. I had the pork chop and it was one of the best dishes I have had anywhere and I eat out a lot. The Stinking Rose is now... More

I love garlic, I really do, but it was literally stinky and a ridiculous place. important to mention that the health score is B. some of the dishes has really too much garlic so the only thing you can taste is the garlic. Consider that you have to take a shower after dining there. the service was OK, not mre... More
