I expected more from this restaurant since it was owned by Guy Fieri. It’s a higher class greasy spoon of American comfort food of burgers, ribs, pizzas, fried bar food with international touches. Small plates for appetizers and large plates as the main entrees. Friendly wait staff with slow service and flow of food. We were there for a small... More

Stopped in after a movie on Saturday around 2:30. The place was not very busy and we took a seat at the bar. Service was not prompt to start with but once the bartender provided us with her attention we were well taken care of. We ordered shrimp tacos and the Cochon pizza, both good choices. The food took about... More

Service was really nice and chatty, which I didn't mind at all. Food was tasty, but the prices are a bit high for what you get. I'd still go back if I were in town, again.

It's in that perfect location and decent food and drinks! But hey, they lack customer service. Like, seriously poor customer service.

My wife loves going here and ordering the Bowlas, just a fun place to relax and enjoy dinner with the family.

For a restaurant that was founded by a Food Channel celebrity, Johnny Garlic ' s is a real disappointment. Fried everything with salads drenched in thick, fatty dressing. Felt like it would take a week at the gym to undue the health effects of one lunch there. Can anyone in America spell o-b-s-i-t-y? Because this is your go to place.

We were headed to the movies and decided to try out Guy's place. SO glad we did. We were there for lunch and asked to be seated outside, so the bartender was our server. She was the ABSOLUTE best. Service is not something I take lightly and I expect and reward great service. I asked for a TALL glass of... More

This was my first time here and was overall impressed! The prices were pretty reasonable and the food potions were huge. Not like Chessecake Factory huge, but pretty large! The menu was kinda small, but there is surely something you could be interested in and be satisfied! I would definitely come back here, an recommend to anyone!

We purchased three different pasta and two flat breads to go. They were ok. The place is similar to BJs or TGI Friday. Has full bar. Expected a better experience since it was owned by guy fiere. Apparently they carry alligator now that it is legal in california.
