I don't know what happened here...

Our group of friends have been eating at Garibaldi's for over 10 year. It has always been fantastic quality food. We ate here on 10 Jan 2015. There were 8 of us and we were seated around 830pm. The place was packed as it usually is. Things started off ok but went down hill fast. The food took over... read more

Went to Garibaldis for a colleague dinner outing for a work appreciation dinner. We valeted and were greeted by our hostess and promptly directed to our party. The decor was nice and chic, the staff was very wonderful and recommended the chef's specialty the Flounder. I have never been so impressed by fish before, the sauce was absolutely wonderful and...

I have been to Columbia now twice on Business in the last twelve months. Both times I have stopped at Garibaldi's for dinner with guests. First time we all tried Italian dishes and we loved it. I was back in town this week and took a guest and we both had non-Italian dishes and they were fantastic. I had a... More

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. Blah... More

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
