This is a lively place with lots of decor to look at. There is a large outside area that is neat. The food overall was good, not outstanding. I would go here again for the atmosphere and to try more items on the menu.

Firstly, I am a big fan of The Garlic. Eaten there many times since 2011. Sometimes with larger groups, other times just for two. Decided to celebrate an occasion on last Friday. Parking lot was full to overflowing - as usual - thats always a good thing and we're used to it. We were expecting a long wait, but were... More

I am have been going to the garlic for many years and haven't written a review. The atmosphere is one of a kind, very romantic and unique. The food is always excellent. I have brought many out of town guests to the garlic and everyone loves the food. The service is always excellent. If you are in New Smyrna you... More

Wonderful anniversary dinner! It was a holiday weekend and the parking lot was a nightmare. The wait for a table was long, so we put our names on the list and went somewhere else for drinks. When we came back, the dinner rush was over and it was calm. Our server was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Very enjoyable dinner. This... More

I am so very glad I chose The Garlic for my husband's birthday dinner. There are lots of great restaurants in NSB, and I wanted something higher end with good food and atmosphere. The Garlic fit my desire perfectly and I am happy to say my husband and daughter loved the experience as well. The restaurant is seriously gorgeous -... More

We got there at 4pm to enjoy the free happy hour food but decided to have early bird dinners. Chicken Alfredo & Chicken Parmesan were so good we were stuffed. Starts with a very fresh spring greens salad with oil & Baltic dressing, then fresh bread with a garlic dip. Then the delicious main meal. We ate at the bar... More

Okay, don't blink or you may miss it as your heading east to the island after crossing the South Causeway. The Garlic is tucked away in the local trees and vegetation on the left about two blocks after the causeway - small, unobtrusive sign and you just can't see much even as you pass in front of it. But take... More

My fiancé and I brought her daughter and friend here as the finale to our week long vacation. The service was superb, and the food was absolutely amazing. I ordered cioppino (fish stew), which was delicious (but not as good as Scoma's in San Francisco.) Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food and the cool, trendy atmosphere. The place was packed with...

The servers did an excellent job on a busy Saturday night to accommodate our wedding party of 46. Awesome roasted garlic/French bed and our meal choices were excellent. Only dislike - wish the Blue Room was better equipped to keep the room cool.

Everything was great except the room does not receive enough air to keep room comfortable. It was all perfect however we were sweating.
