We had our 13th wedding anniversary at The Garlic on Monday night. We were bummed to find out that The Blu Room (new addition to the restaurant, different chef, different menu) wasn't open that night, but their original restaurant was open. This was our first time to The Garlic so we were fine with trying the original chef/menu. We were... More

I wasn't a reviewer here the first time my husband and I shared a meal with friends at The Garlic but now I am and I can't miss the chance to share four thumbs up. We had a beautiful evening outside in the heated courtyard. Each meal begins with warm crispy bread to "rip and dip" into a generous plate... More

The Garlic has always been "THE HIGH END RESTAURANT" to dine at in NSB. However, over the 5/6 yrs of my patronage, the food quality has just recently dropped. Drastically dropped. The atmosphere is fantastic, service is (was) very attentive. Beautiful place, has dropped in quality.

We had a great waitress named Jenna, very attentive, attractive, and on the ball, glad she waited on us. First you... More

Probably New Smyrna Beaches prettiest restaurants. The portions are extremely large. Food was good quality. Service wasn't the best.

Everything from the delicious food to the amazing outdoor seating was absolutely perfect! The outdoor lights and fire place just top it off. This is by far the best I have been to yet in the 4 years of living in Florida. A MUST try!

Terrific atmosphere and fabulous food. We have returned repeatedly and never been disappointed. Many share our opinion, so anticipate a wait.

My boyfriend and I live locally and the Garlic has been our favorite restaurant for years. Every time we visit we are treated to excellent food and friendly service. Last night we ate at the Blu Bar and it was wonderful as always. I had an amazing Chilean sea bass over zucchini ribbons that was cooked to perfection with a... More

The ambiance is really good. They have an excellent saxafone player at the Blue bar. I ordered a dirty martini and it was not very good, their house brand of vodka is poor. I would only order top shelf from now on.
