Great Appetizers

Fun place, Had appetizers for lunch then went back for dinner. Lunch was awesome. Dinner was Ok , I had the fish it smelled old and was greasy. GF had the buffalo and liked it. It is very noisy, not a good place if you want to visit in a quite location.

Ok so I went there because the menu was very interesting. I started with a top shelf Margherita which was excellent. They give you a nice garlic bread to pick at while you wait for your food which was also very good. I ordered Guy's signature award winning bacon mac burger and garlic fries. It was impressive to look at... More

We each had great meals! I was last here with my late wife and she was in love with the place :-) The food is superb, the service could NOT be better, and, best of all, it was easy to find!

The service was fantastic, but the food was lousy! The steaks were awful and expensive. Don't waste your time eating here.

This place used to be one of my personal favorites sadly the quality of the food and the service have gone way down. Guy needs to spend some time on his existing restaurants instead of his TV shows or just close the place down. Used to love the Garlic Mashed Potatoes now they have very little garlic taste and the... More

Yes it is garlic overload! The garlic fries were full of fresh garlic bites - I wish I could have had enough room for another order. I had the SoCo turkey club - Donkey sauce was full of garlic and the sourdough bread was excellent. My wife had the soup and salad lunch special - garlic soup (really potent garlic)... More

Came for a late lunch/early dinner ordered the crispy artichoke hearts as an appetizer and the burger basher burger with the signature garlic fries. Artichokes were very good, great sauce, nice and crispy but not greasy. The burger was amazing, the meat so flavorful. Totally recommend! Come hungry though, could have skipped the appetizer we left "Thanksgiving stuffed"! Totally worth... More

We like this place for dining and drinks. Its a fun place to go to in Santa Rosa, and one of our favorite restaurants for Guy Fieri (Food TV). This past time we had their coconut shrimp and sliders. Service was good.

Johnny Garlic's has become a mandatory stop on our family trips to NorCal. My kids have always enjoyed going to "Guy's restaurant" and I can't fault them: kids' meals are delicious with lots of healthy options. Some of my favorites are the ahi dinner entree, rib eye, ahi won tacos, and the lamb sliders. Garlic fries are to die for... More

Everyone in our group of 8 enjoyed their meals and desserts. I especially liked the Cajun chicken pasta. The peanut butter ice cream pie was wonderful and the bananas foster was tasty (leave off the candied bacon, it doesn't work). The staff was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was relaxed.
