“Delish!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The restaurants name evoked a theme of deliciousness. We were seated immediately at a table,as all others,that had striped canvas drapes at the corners. Perhaps creating privacy,too claustrophoibic. The rolls were deliciously smothered in garlic. My daughters crab legs were missing garlic,my prime rib good,not fabulous for the price. Two roasted garlic gloves.Really?
Both of us felt very rushed through dinner. Very shortly after our drinks were served,dinner was placed on the table.
Great name......Fair dinner..sfs

“For the Garlic Obsessed!!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

If you're obsessed with garlic, like me, you must visit this restaurant. It offers great dishes with one overriding theme - GARLIC! Dracula would visit, if he could. I had a salmon with lemon-garlic sauce dish and I enjoyed it. I usually skip the bread and butter given before a meal; however, I had to sink my knife into the garlic treat presented before me. Sure, the garlic will sweat through your pores later, but it's well worth it.

“Great Food, Bad Day-After Smells”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We come here for most birthdays in our family. The food and atmosphere are wonderful. We usually get the bagna calda, potato soup, seafood platter, and an entree. I would say if you follow this menu, you're going to eat at least 20 cloves of garlic, if not more. I probably eat more like 40. As delightful as this will taste, you will be leaking the smell of garlic from your pores for the next 24 hours. It's fine if you are hanging out with people you went with for that time, but just know that if you are getting funny looks from strangers, that's why.

“Unexpected!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The decor is very quirky, so I wasn't quite sure to expect.... But, I was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was! Obviously, there is garlic galore! We had a great time and I recommend coming here for a fun date night (preferably with someone who has known you long enough to not judge your garlic breath)!!

“Garlic Heaven”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Enjoyed a Sunday lunch with friends here recently. The restaurant was quiet (it was early), but the ambience, service and decor was worth the visit. Food selections are unique and well prepared, but the raosted garlic starter with bread is exceptional. Who knew roasted garlic could be so good!
We drove over an hour to get to the Stinking Rose, but would go again for a special occasion or when we are visiting the LA/Beverly Hills area.
