A favorite of Spain
Sauteed with fresh garlic and sun-dried tomatoes in a lemon and basil cream sauce. Topped with melted brie and stached over spinach with our famous Gilroy potatoes
Jumbo lump crab meat mixed with roasted red peppers, sweet onions, roasted garlic & seasoning served with fresh chilled mango salsa and a cajun remoulade sauce
The food is outstanding, the service is very good. One of our favorite local restaurants. We need to come here more often!
Delicious food and great service. Waiter was super friendly
Great food great atmosphere great service
The food is always delicious. Service is fantastic. Don’t forget to get Sangria!
Great food, pleasant people, friendly service. Reasonably priced.
The food was wonderful and the waiter was great. My wife and I haven’t been there in about 5 years and the place looks exactly the same. I don’t know that this is a good thing or not unless they are going for the retro Italian look. Other than that we will go back.
Great spot we have been going for 5 years and quality has not changed at all
Our favorite restaurant by far. Food, service, and friendliness of staff are all outstanding.
It was my first time visiting Garlic Rose, I took my girlfriend for her birthday, we both enjoyed our food and the garlic with the rolls was excellent, cannot forget about the Sangria it was very good..Our waiter Jeffrey was very nice and always checked to make sure we were good...The whole staff was very nice, I will definitely go back and let everyone know about Garlic Rose!
We’ve been here before and it was just good this time. My wife ordered Pasta Carbonara and it was missing the peas (on the menu itself) and I ordered the Gnocchi, extra hot. My Gnocchi were like bullets and it was not hot at all, in fact very limited amount of hot cherry peppers. The portion was not very for for the price they charged. The place was not very crowded for a Saturday night. With that said he service was very good and they were attentive.
The music was a little louder than we would have liked it, but the songs were all enjoyable, and importantly, the people did not talk loud.
The food was superb! Service was quick, pleasant, and attentive. We'll be back! I think the Garlic Rose had improved since we were there several years ago. We will definitely be back very soon. Thank you!
Went out with my husband for Valentine's Day and the food and service were fabulous! Haven't been here in a long time, so it was nice to go and enjoy really great food and service. My only complaint was the music. They played Elvis the whole time. It would have been nice to listen to some other songs from other artists too. Otherwise, no complaints. Thank you for a really nice evening.
Great food, great service. From the appetizer to dessert there were no disappointments. Very friendly and attentive staff and the owners make the rounds to ensure everything is good. A good value too
Overall it was good - my wife enjoyed her beef tenderloin and artichoke appetizer - my garlic shrimp appetizer was a little on the salty side - I expected my penne pasta would be Al dente but not the peas in the sauce - tiramisu was ok but would rather have it dusted with powdered cocoa then a chocolate glaze - all in all I'd go back and try it again -
We love garlic rose
Warm, welcoming attentive waitstaff. Frequently had water glass filled. Delicious food. Thank you.
The food was overpriced for what you got. I had the specialty raviolis and they were just raviolis. Nothing special about them. My wife had spaghetti bolognese. It was tasty but, again, nothing special.
The service was terrible. When we sat, the waiter said fresh bread was coming. It didn’t come until we were half done with our entrees and only because we asked for it. Although we had no bread plates, it didn’t matter because we had no butter or oil with the bread anyway.
When he served the entrees, the waiter asked if we would like fresh grated cheese. We both said yes. We didn’t get the cheese until we were almost done with dinner. And we had to ask for it.
While we were eating, the waiter was at another table asking if they wanted the their leftovers wrapped. Two out of the five people said no because they didn’t like their meal. The waiter offered to make the apps and drink complimentary but they turned him down.
Come dessert time, we just wanted to leave.
Service is always excellent and the food is always delicious at garlic rose!
Great portions,savory selections, friendly staff and clean open atmosphere
Garlic Rose Bistro did not disappoint at all. I am a New York girl and it’s a treat to find little gems like Garlic Rose Bistro.
I was celebrating my dear friend’s 46th birthday. It’s been a tradition of ours to find delicious food to celebrate her birthday. The ratings online for the Garlic Rose Bistro were high and worth the high star ratings. The service was excellent, reasonably priced, and the food was DE-LISH-US!
Fantastic Christmas Eve dinner. Excellent food and atmosphere
We always love our visits here. Service and food are top notch. Especially love the pesto and roasted garlic that comes yo each tanle.
Unfortunately we weren’t a fan on the food. It didn’t taste nor look fresh and our bread was burnt. There was mold in the bathroom which was very unsanitary. The only good thing was the service. We won’t be back.
ordered crab cakes as a main course, consisted of 3 dried, silver dollar sized crab cakes with a side order of spinach. as our meal was being served all around us tables and chairs were being moved to accommodate a party of around 12. as they arrived (at different times) we were bumped and interrupted while trying to eat. needless to say the party was also loud as they greeted each arriving member. did i mention the crab cakes cost $34 plus $4 for a small diluted glass of ice tea?
The food is great but service needs to be improved a bit. May be an extra of a couple of waiters.
Service was great, as was the bread and pesto to start. Food was not as memorable as expected.
Cute little place. Food was absolutely delicious!! Highly recommend.
Food and drinks were top notch as always!!
Very good food, with great service.
It wasn’t Garlic Rose’s issue. Our company was beyond crazy.
If you love garlic, that's your place. Old italian style cuisine.
Heavy and too elaborate dishes.
Pretty good service
This is a local restaurant where everything has a slant on garlic. Food was amazing. Started with Escargot and it was amongst the best I have ever had. Had the pork chop as a main and could not be more delighted. My wife had shrimp and was equally impressed. Can't wait to go back.
We've wanted to go to Garlic Rose for a while and now we can't wait to go back. The food, wine and service was EXCELLENT. The mussels in green sauce app was amazing as well as the salmon special and the beef bordelaise. Our server was very attentive and friendly.
The garlic Rose is a great place to enjoy a nice quiet dinner. The food is good and the Garlic is great. The menu offers a good variety to choose from. We always enjoy our time there.
FOOD WAS DELICIOUS
CANT WAIT TO GO BACK!!
Always a great experience. Food is stellar, service outstanding. Came for a family celebration and enjoyed every morsel. Bought a container of the wonderful garlic dip to go.
I ordered the special shrimp and angel hair pasta very good.. My boyfriend had the duck and scallop potatoes he said it was good but the portions were small
Food arrived fresh and hot - well prepared. Well worth visiting for dinner. Garlic preparations are not overpowering. Good for couples because you can have a conversation without being overwhelmed by noise - tables are set far apart.
