We invite you to enjoy an authentic taste of the Tuscan countryside. Walk down a vine covered arbor, surrounded by a walled Olde World fireplace and enter a garden lush with lit trees and flowering greenery. The garlic offers one of the most beautiful settings for a delightful and memorable dining experience. We offer great food, live music, fine wine, Italian beer, and perfect martinis. Come experience the garlic for yourself.

A nice anniversary dinner

My wife and I came here for dinner for our anniversary and The Garlic did not disappoint. My wife had manicotti and I had the filet Oscar. We started with the spinach and artichoke dip and their bread with garlic. My only issue was that I ordered a Stella and it seems like the kegs may have been... read more

Everything at The Garlic is simply marvelous! The food, the service and the ambience. You must love garlic! If you don't you won't like this place. It even smells wonderful! It's an outstanding place for couples and family gatherings. They have a great wine selection and the waitstaff is knowledgable. If you are in NSB you must go to The... More

I have been visiting this restaurant for a few years now, and it is always fantastic. We went to the Blue Bar prior to our meal this time, and loved it as well. Great unique atmosphere, drinks, the works! The bocce ball is always a favorite, and was excellent on this visit as well. We also ordered the bone-in ribeye,... More

We've been here twice now and the atmosphere is incredible, the food is top notch, and the experience you have while dining along with the friendly staff and service is outstanding. The bacon wrapped filet is my personal favorite and I highly recommend it.

Our experience at The Garlic over the years has been nothing but outstanding. We drive 1 1/2hrs from our home to enjoy this restaurant...it is ALWAYS packed when we have gone so my advice is to go early....I believe that you can not make reservations...first come, first serve. There is valet parking in case you do not wish to park... More

We went based on a review and couldn't eat and get out of there quick enough. The food was so so, nothing to rave about. The waiter was arrogant, in a rush, and couldn't wait to get rid of us. He was more interested in everything going on around him than doing his job. We will not go back
