Food, Service, Atmosphere perfect for a business diner with work co-workers, a family/friends get together, or a special dinner with that special person in your life. Cease salad, shrimp and angel hair pasta, and key lime pie were perfect choices. I enjoyed them all.

Garibaldi's is a great fine dining experience. The valet parking makes Five Points user friendly. The decor is art deco beautiful. The service is very professional. The menu is varied and wonderful. Best calmari and when available the mouse. The steaks, oso bucco, and seafoods are tops. And then the desserts, yes! We are always pleased.

Food was good and service was good, but for $150.00 plus tip, I believe the money could've been spent better elsewhere. Steak options are pricey so I got the crispy flounder which was adequate. May return, not sure though.

I just don't get it. This place is not very good at all so I have a hard time understanding these reviews. The atmosphere - well, let's say the decor could use updating and leave it at that...after all, it is the food that counts, right? After all the talk of this "famous" flounder, I decided to try it.

My wife, daughter, and I ate at Garibaldi's for the 3rd time on Homecoming weekend and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the meal. For my money, the signature dish of scored flounder with spicy apricot sauce is as good of a meal as I have had in a South Carolina restaurant. The ambiance, service and pairing with the Meiomi Pinot... More

One of my favorite restaurants to visit one in Columbia. It has fantastic food, great service, and a bartender that beats the band. Great place for a date, or the whole family. It really is a gem.

Valet parking provided which is beneficial as it can be quite dificult to park in the area. Service provided was very good, our waiter was both informing and attentive to our needs. The food (shoulder of lamb; lasagne; almond basket & creme brulee) was all of excellent quality and thoroughly enjoyable.

I have been stuck for years on this dish! It seems no matter how many times I go to Garibaldi's, I order the flounder. It's a whole, scored flounder with a sweet/hot glaze that is soooo delicious! A bonus is there is enough for another meal at home. The ambiance of this restaurant enhances the excellent food as well.
