Service was great- cheerful, helpful. Grilled artichoke was dry & burned. Some kind of bread was undercooked- soggy. Ahi tuna was perfectly cooked.

Someone suggested we try the Garlic Brothers. We looked on-line at their menu, and calculated what we can afford. When we arrived they charged us a higher price, and claimed their their menu prices on-line have not been updated. I asked the clerk to ask...the boss to make an adjustment. She claimed that the boss will not make any price adjustments (bait and switch). You be the judge if you wish to patronize a business with this kind of attitude.More

Excellent service. Food was less consistent. Ravioli was superb. Fried fish average. Pork belly great. Will definitely be back, and try again.

This restaurant is located by the marina and the view is great. The window seats are popular so you have to get there early. The food was good. The chicken with pesto had a good flavor. The garlic mashed potatoes were great on the side....Their desserts are definitely worth a try if you are still hungry. This restaurant has a great location and is worth a try on that alone.More

I won’t go back. Ever! My food was dry. I waited for extra sauce for my pasta. Told them to charge me. But it took 7-10 min to get the eXtra Sauce . By then all my family were done eating and I didn’t want...to finish. Pasta got cold. I would give them a minus 7 review and say stay away. 15 plus dollars for my pasta plate and it wasn’t worth my time or the money. The sad thing is people from there don’t respond well.

We had a business lunch here. Everything was very tasty and the service was outstanding. I had a grilled pork belly sandwich and my wife had the carnitas quesadilla. We recommend highly. Inside dining is available.

We love garlic brothers!! The food is always delicious and fairly priced. The pizzas are always served at a generous portion & are super tasty! The service is always great even on a busy night.

Definitely will be back. Great stop on our way back on 5. 3 of the 4 of us really enjoyed our meal. Can't remember the 4th dish, but she said it was so-so.

Five of us had dinner with three different appetizers. Everything was simply not good at all. Appetizers had warm and cold sections, with nothing hot like it should have been. Best thing were the chips that came with the artichoke dip. CHIPS! Steaks could not...have been more thin and could not have had more gristle. All overcooked, including the salmon. Next time - I'll go somewhere else for sure. Finally, the 4% add on for using a credit card? Rip off to customers and serversMore

What a fun place to eat. It exceeded my three criteria of a good restaurant, 1) cloth napkins, 2) tasty food/service and 3) ambiance. I give them an A+ on all three counts. Great views of the water on the outside deck and in the...restaurant itself. The meals were delicious and the service spectacular. What a wonderful place to spend the afternoon or evening.More

Love the vibe in this restaurant. Open and airy with awesome deck for outside dining. Service was good and the food has garlic added to each dish. The pasta is great, individual pizzas are yummy and the tri tip salad is my favorite. You can...actually watch the sunset while dining!!More

Great location right on the water at Village West Marina. Good bar, outdoor and indoor seating, selection of fish (Ahi, Salmon, or Triggerfish), pastas,chicken,a good TriTip, and also pretty decent pizza. Good appetizers also. Such a great place to catch a cocktail with Sunset,and lunch...or dinner at one of Stockton's most reliable cool places to eat with your friends or S.O. Been here a long time, for good reason!More
