Atmosphere is casual funky fun interior. valet parking only. Kind of hard to get the attention of the service staff. I recommend bring gum for after the meal. Everything has garlic so if you like garlic it's a must to try. prices are descent for the area. I had pork chops but it was a bit dry... read more

The Zuppa de Pesce is enough to fill me up. It's the best soup I've had and I honestly have dreams about it. It's a MUST if you dine here. The prawn fettucine and Margherita pizza were equally superb and 맛있어요 (delicious)! I'll definitely dine here again when I visit LA. BTW, I love the interiors of the place... like... More

My wife and I recently had dinner in The Stinking Rose after not having been there for a few years. It lived up to all our expectations in the quality and quantity of food. My wife had the chicken cooked with 40 cloves of garlic and I had the meatloaf and gravy served with garlic mash and creamed spinach. For... More

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

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

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.
