We have always had good food there, and Art, the manager, who reminds you of his name by ''like are on the wall'' assured that our service was great. We have dined there alone, but also as a large group at my daughter;s wine country wedding reheearsal dinner. Always fun and delicious!

Wife and I stopped in for a light and casual dinner. They had a small but interesting lineup of brews on tap. Menu is on the casual side, do not expect a formal sit-down place with white table cloths. Our server was quick and attentive and an assistant came around regularity to refill water glasses. I had the fish and... More

This is simply a high end fast good joint. Although a step above OliveGarden, nothing special about this place. I thought service was very good though!

Johnny garlic's is a good local restaurant offering a lot of California fare. Good food and friendly staff make for a lovely evening. Not for garlic haters.

You can sure tell that Guy no longer is a part of this restaurant. Server took our order and we never saw her again. Food was ok but both of our sandwiches were soggy. Will not be returning, which is a shame because it use to be a favorite.

The setting is dated and not well kept. The food was just OK and for the price they charge I expected more than just ok. Five guys and in and out burgers are just ok but at a quarter of the price. Save yourself the disappointment and money as there are numerous other places to go in Santa Rosa. This... More

Have not been here for sometime and went there with two out of town visitors. The menu offers what you would expect at this level of a restaurant. In addition they also offer something wild and different which changes often. On our visit wild boar was on the "Wild" menu. Our young waiter (oops server) was knowledgeable and attentive. After...

If this restaurant is still owned by Guy Fiori he needs to either come visit the place or on general principal update. General cleanliness was not evident, service was slow and food quality mediocre. A big disappointment

This used to be one of my favorite places to eat, but lately, I have been underimpressed. That being said, a friend of mine, who lives out-of-town, always wants to eat here when she is visiting, and she really enjoys it. Johnny Garlic's used to have wonderful cocktails. The last time I visited, I could barely drink their margarita. The... More
