The place ought to be called "The Gimmick" because people are enticed by the hanging garlic everywhere and expensive Tommy Bahama meets Bucca Di Peppo décor. They give you smashed garlic with super market quality bread with every entry. The smashed garlic has virtually no appeal, give me good old garlic knots with sautéed garlic and oil any day of...

The Garlic is an absolutely gorgeous restaurant ! It is worth the trip to enjoy the italien like atmosphere and the delicious roasted garlic and warm bread served as you relax into your chair. I would definitely go back again for a drink and the delicious mussels. Request an outside table and you will think that you are in heaven!... More

But, it is also great for early bird specials! A nice variety of items on the menu from pasta to beef, chicken and seafood. Have been here three times and no problems on any visit.

If you like Italian and can't get enough garlic, then this is the place for you. Friends told me about The Garlic so the six of us made the short drive to New Smyrna Beach for dinner on a Saturday night. We were seated in one of the many open-air dining areas surrounded by lush vegetation. Each person got a... More

Last day of the 14th New Smyrna Beach Jazz Festival, put together by Promoter Marc Monteson. Needless to say, the best thus far. Sold out, full house at The Garlic to listen to Nicole Henry, one of the best jazz singers in the Country from Miami, Florida. My friends, what a treat. Peter Puzzo, General Manager, had our table ready... More

Suggested by our B&B host. Almost don't want to share because the place is totally awesome. Very unique in ambiance and decor. They've added on recently and the place was still packed. Good drinks, excellent food although not always inexpensive but you can share entrees as some are enormous. This also allows you to order an appetizer, too. You are... More

Want to take your special someone, (or on your own) to a restaurant that has it all, Look no further than the Garlic Restaurant in New Smyrna Beach. When you walk down the entrance through the foliage you enter a different dining experience. On the left side of the restaurant music is playing and the atmosphere is unreal. Go to... More

The Garlic has a unique ambiance, with thousands of garlic cloves as part of the decor. When asked if they were "real" our server told us they were indeed! Fun stuff. However, it was a bit too dark in there and I'm not a fan of a dark room. The food was good, but not authentically Italian. Too much sauce... More
