Not sure of the address, but this place is really opened in Windsor, California as of April 2017. This is another strip mall eatery. It appeared to be popular as it was about half full of people appearing to enjoy their meals. So as it was later in the evening we stayed. It was okay in terms of food. Had... More

This place is closed! You need to take it off your site. Not sure what else I can say because it is no longer open at all. As in, gone, closed. out of business! It was great when it was open. I guessed as to when we were there last because I don't remember when it closed down.

Closed in late 2016 - kind of went down hill after Guy Fieri left - though I've never been a huge fan of his, anyway. Started charging for the focaccia bread, and portions were small. Not surprised it didn't make it, though I'm going to miss having a half way decent restaurant that serves cocktails so close to where I... More

Was mildly surprised by the location and food. Been wanting to try the food. A bit pricy and food was warm at best. If you like lots of garlic then this is the place to go. Great salads

We actually went here three times within 30 days. The 1st was a birthday dinner, the 2nd time on a Thursday night and this last time for our usual Sunday night dinner. The first two times everyone was completely satisfied, and the service was great. This time the adult food was OK, nothing special, the kids really didn't eat their... More

Been to Johnny Garlic's a few times and the food is ok but not great. Inexperienced staff were lifting the plates before all of our group were finished eating. This place strives on the Guy Fieri name

My husband ribs were very good. Very tasty and tender but not exceptional. My shrimp tacos were wonderful! My heirloom tomato salad was very fresh. Problem was that I was expecting heirloom tomatoes and I got grape tomatoes. The server must have been new. Took drink orders then came back to get our dinner order and said "oops I will... More

We had dinner there tonight. It was hot in Santa Rosa, 100 degrees...it felt like the AC was not working. We mentioned that it was hot inside and the hostess said it was hotter outside. I'm not sure they ever turned the AC on. The waiter we had was very inexperienced, I had to show him how to use the... More

We enjoy family dinners at this restaurant. They recently changed the menu, and the appetizers are improved over the previous menu. But I feel like there are less choices for dinner than we had before. I enjoyed the dinner, but did not leave feeling like it was the best dinner ever... but the appetizers- those ranked up there with best... More

I know that this review is a bit outdated as I was there a few years back while on my first Triple D roadtrip. I am a major Triple D fan and my first road trip was to the west coast, a long way from Winnipeg. I have heard that Guy no longer with Johnny Garlic's which is to bad.... More
