Sadly, this is one of the most regrettable dinner decisions I've ever made. Went in September, and first wondered how a place this cheap-looking (fake exposed brick wall decals, cheap novelty pictures I've seen everywhere else) could get such good reviews. The seats were also cheap and uncomfortable, the ceiling ugly, and the place was carpeted. The bread and famed... More

The food here is very good - gets a bit crowded though. Consider making a reservation! The BYOB policy is a great way to order a little something extra from the menu.

Have had excellent meals here...most recently in May 2014. Love that it is BYOB and our favorite is the dessert Amaretto Cake.

Even if you don't like garlic, you should love the meals at the Garlic Rose. I've been there numerous times and have never been disappointed. The pesto sauce for the bread was delicious. Nice size and delicious salad with the meal. I had the chicken and shrimp jubilee with their famous potatoes and broccoli--a great meal!! My friends enjoyed their... More

I've passed Garlic Rose on Main St. many times in Madison but it seemed like one of those hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One time I was going out to eat with my family and we finally decided to try it. We were pleasantly surprised! The food is really good. You do really have to like garlic, but umm, you kind of should... More

Hadn't been back to this restaurant for many years, but returned for a pre-theater dinner. Had a shrimp and angel pasta dish which was very good. The other three people with me also enjoyed their meals. Service was prompt and pleasant, though it did take a while to finally get the check when we were ready to leave. Garlic was... More

We enjoyed a tasty dinner at the Garlic Rose. Our server, Angie, was super...attentive without being overbearing. Salads were fresh and a nice size. We loved the bread served with a "special" pesto dipping sauce. Our main courses were very good. Eggplant Rollitini and Rigatoni with a Vodka cream sauce. We finished up with a great cup of coffee and... More

This restaurant is one of those "love it or hate it" experiences. The food is reasonably priced, and served by pleasant, friendly wait staff - but if you don't love garlic, maybe try somewhere else. Their menu is innovative and rather good, again, if you like the Garlic Rose theme. My reason for 3 stars is not the menu, but... More

The name says it all. The menu features everything garlic - from appetizer to dessert. The kitchen will modify items to decrease or increase the amount of garlic. The service is good; the food is good. BYOW.and enjoy.
