The food is always delicious, house bread with garlic and olive oil is amazing. The restaurant is just beautiful and it feels so good inside. Prepare for a long wait time

We were not disappointed. As soon as you enter, you say to yourself that "this is going to be good" Walking down the hallway, you are surrounded by... More

Our family has always wanted to go to The Garlic. We had outstanding service, and the food was amazing. We have a condo in Ponce Inlet, and it was well worth the 30-minute drive.

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.
