This place has really good Mediterranean fare. The sampler platter with hummus, baba ganoush, falafel, tahini, and garlic paste is awesome. Asked to sub out tabouli for extra hummus and they didn't give us a problem. They have some of the best falafel in the area, chock full of flavorful cardamom, just fabulous. I could make a meal out of... More

We have been here several times, the food has always been exceptional. Going in you have to realize that it is an experience dining here, and an experience that is not short. If you are looking for a place to grab a quick bite and run, don't bother. Expect to spend 2 hours from sitting down to paying the check.... More

Had lunch here with friends. We all enjoyed it. They have foods that are rarely found in chain restaurants.

I passed by this restaurant many times over the past few years. Silly name in a little strip mall. A friend working nearby said they enjoy it and said I should give it a try. I am sure glad I did! Very nice staff and very delicious, reasonably priced Greek food served in a pleasant simply appointed but elegant space,... More

We have been going to Garlic Lovers' Corner for years but recently needed a place that could accommodate 20 people for a family birthday so I was able to see how they would handle such a group. Many of our attendees had never been to this restaurant and, to a person, said how great the food was and how delighted... More

This is a great little spot tucked away in a small strip mall offering an interesting and tasty selection of Mediterranean dishes. Quite, comfortable, and reasonably priced.

Try to get here every time I'm in town for dinner. Favorite appetizers: home made hummus and pita and fried calamari with Balsamic vinegar. Favorite entrees: salmon in dill butter with Balsamic glaze and chicken kabobs. Amazing Jasmine rice. Desserts ate indescribable. Favorite is pear tart. Delicious coffee.

We had lunch at Garlic Lover's in North Greenbush with another couple. There were so many choices of items on the menu that I would love to try that we will definitely have to go back again! All four of us decided on the kebab (3 of us had chicken and 1 had beef). Everything was flavorful and delicious and... More

We have been many times to this eatery to feast on the well-prepared Middle Eastern food. Last night I had the chicken stew over Jasmine rice and my husband opted forvthevlamb and apricot stew. The aromas were as good as the dishes.

We haven't been to this restaurant in a few years and we're kicking ourselves for all the great meals we've missed! We returned last night and it was SO GOOD!
