Lots of nooks and crannies to dine in. We opted for tapas and we were very pleased with our choice.....lamb chops were delicious. Staff were all very friendly and we enjoyed an after dinner drink at the bar.

The Garlic looked good in the reviews and we are happy to add another positive one. For a Sunday night they seemed busy, but they promptly seated us. There were several very large parties and it did not impact our service level at all. They...More

The setting is so charming! Different courtyards and greenery with candles everywhere. The food was amazing. I had Seafood Italiano. It was fantastic. The fresh bread is served with roasted whole garlic cloves, amazing. I will be back for sure! Great service and wine too!

Went to the garlic on a Friday night and this won't be the last!! The live music band was amazing. The food is a little pricey but more than worth it. The staff is super friendly and over all just an amazing experience!

Went for dinner on a Tuesday night. A little confusing when entering as the Blu Bar is to the right, restaurant to the left. Decided to sit by the bar and it was crowded. Great ambience with live music and nice staff. Order the NY...More

We invite you to enjoy an authentic taste of the Tuscan countryside. Walk down a vine covered arbor, surrounded by a walled Olde World fireplace and enter a garden lush with lit trees and flowering greenery. The garlic offers one of the most beautiful settings for a delightful and memorable dining experience. We offer great food, live music, fine wine, Italian beer, and perfect martinis. Come experience the garlic for yourself.
