My wife and I recently were travelling home to Daytona and stopped in New Smyrna Beach for a nice early dinner. I'm sure that wait times are long on the weekends but this was a Tues and we were seated immediately. The bar high top we were seated at was loud and cold. ( Way too much A/C ). The kind waitress sensed our discomfort and offered a table outside in the "garden" area. We took her up and the entire evening and experience changed from that point.
The atmosphere outside is superior. Quiet, twinkly lights, very rustic appointments and an AWESOME waitstaff. we were served promptly with appetizers, salads and the entrees. My wife had filet mignon lasagna and I had Spuntitori Italiano which is basically a giant bowl of pasta and marinara sauce loaded with every form of Italian meat immaginable. Just overwhelmingly great.
Impossible chance of desert. The food was impeccible and the service as well. I've eaten in 5 star restaurants from Vegas to New Orleans and I told my lovely wife that this meal ranked in the top 5 I have EVER had. Hats off to all at The Garlic !!!!!
