The Garlic is one of the best restaurants in NSB, hands-down. They have innumerable dishes, all of them equally delicious, and a kind, welcoming, friendly, and excellent staff. The only problem with this place is getting into it. Reservations are vital if you want some really fantastic pasta, but you have to call early, or you'll have to settle for... More

Really fantastic restaurant. Got reservations no problem, parking in the area was a little short so we used the complimentary valet parking. The meal was perfect from the apps through desert. The waitstaff were really friendly and helpful. We'll go back the next time in the area.

My children took me here to celebrate my birthday. My husband and I have been to The Garlic twice before and I was overjoyed to go there again. It's like being outside in an Italian Garden. Large Trees, vines, flowers. Music flowing, it's really an experience. We were a large party and had some concerns as they do not take... More

Description
We invite you to enjoy an authentic taste of the Tuscan countryside. Walk down a vine covered arbor, surrounded by a walled Olde World fireplace and enter a garden lush with lit trees and flowering greenery. The garlic offers one of the most beautiful settings for a delightful and memorable dining experience. We offer great food, live music, fine wine, Italian beer, and perfect martinis. Come experience the garlic for yourself.
