We so enjoyed our dining exprience at The Garlic. We were a party of five and we were seated right away. Wonderful food, atmosphere, great live music (and this was a week night). Our waiter was charming and very attentive. We will definitely be back.

Wow. Didn't expect that in NSB. Prepare for an early dinner or a long wait - but - worth it. Funky kind of organic Italian atmosphere blended with Florida jungle ambience. Super friendly staff and just a really cool grown into sort of vibe. Had the seafood Italian over pasta and others had puttanesca. Have to say it was very... More

The surrounding and atmosphere are part of the experience. The spontaneous opera singing as well as the established entertainment keep you so intertwined while dining on the best food in this area.

We had a group of 10 on a Saturday night with reservations. Food was wonderful the service was good. Unique fun atmosphere, BUT the music was so LOUD we could NOT talk to person next to us! Not good for large groups or reuniting with old friends

Love the roasted garlic that they serve at the beginning. Food was excellent, service was great. Sat out on the patio and there was a slight mist because it had just rained it was just beautiful out with all the trees.

Had an amazing time for my girls B-Day our server was Jim and I tell you what. I manage one of the highest volume restaurants in the Daytona Ormond area, and i wish I had more guys like this. Oh and fabulous music. Reminded me of my hometown Kansas City jazz. Can't wait to come back.
