This restaurant is a mainstay in London, surviving many years of fickle London diners. Decor and atmosphere is modern and inspiring with lots of natural light from the large windows on Richmond Street. Service is professional, friendly and efficient. Food is delivered quickly. Servings are generous, but not excessive. Prices are reasonable. Some of the menu choices are impressive, but... More

Have been there twice, the first time was very good so we held a hosted a small family special occasion. The food is excellent, service is very good with a family feel - nice selection of wines. Lots of garlic dishes (obviously) but none are overdone - a real nice use of garlic. Salads have some uniqueness to them and... More

The food is amazing. Don't let the name put you off; the place does not reek of garlic! The dishes are creative and fun. I was intrigued by the appetizer plate with deep fried rosemary as one of the selections- it was fantastic.

My son and I went for lunch to celebrate my birthday and we were quite happy. The service was very good. Our waitress made a good recommendation for an item on the menu that turned out to be perfect. My son's favourite was the garlic parmesan fries. We would go back for another special occasion.

My boss isn't allowed to eat here anymore because he goes home reeking of garlic. It's good though. The garlic Parmesan fries are the best I've ever had.

Garlics of London is a terrific place to dine. This moderately-sized restaurant offers a comprehensive menu of thoughtfully chosen and prepared dishes, served by knowledgable staff. Our choices ran from soup to salad to entree... and nothing disappointed. A real find was the Garlic's Artisan board, a delight consisting of pickled asparagus and fennel, gherkins, a wonderfully smooth chicken liver... More

We are from out of town and celebrated our daughter's convocation from Western University last June with a celebration lunch at Garlics. Today she graduated from a post grad program and we chose to return to Garlics to celebrate once again. Great service. Fresh food! Unique menu. The foccaccia bread served shortly after sitting down was delicious. Garlic Bisque was... More

I go to Garlics every couple of months at least. It's where I take any friends, family or business colleagues for dinner. The food is fantastic and the service is wonderful. Favourite go-to dish is the salmon salad but also love the pad Thai. Don't miss out on going to this place if you're in London.
