The Stinking Rose
Mother's DayExcellent experience. Out reservation was for 1:00 and we were seated at exactly 1. Asked for an addition of shrimp to a basic pasta dish for our son's meal and the amount added was substantial and cooked perfectly. All of our dishes were excellent. One small dissapointment, on the menu my wife's dish was supposed to come with creamed spinach. The spinach not only was not creamed but very dry, like frozen you can buy in a supermarket. Caesar salad was excellent. Steak cooked perfectly. Clams linguini delicious!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEven Better the Second TimeWe had our Mother's Day Lunch here and I have to say my wife was even more impressed since we last came here on Valentine's Day! They have great service and the food is incredible. Needless to say, the 40 clove garlic chicken was a hit.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeI've been here a few times and tried different things each time and I'm still blown away by how amazing everything on the menu tastes. The service is great and the theme is really carried through.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place stinks!In the best possible way you can imagine! If you have a special place in your heart for garlic, well then, this is the place for you. I am already planning my next visit back!
Oh and the live entertainment was man who sang, played: piano, drums, clarinet, saxophone and jazz flute. He sang from Sinatra to Timberlake... Need I say more?5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had difficulty making aWe had difficulty making a change to our online reservation (we wanted to change the number of people attending). We followed online instructions on how to modify our reservations but we were unsuccessful in confirming whether our modification was accepted. We tried calling the restaurant but no response received.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayA perfect place for Mom. Good food, atmosphere and service.
Can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely Love The Stinking RoseEveryone would should go to this restaurant, at least once in their lifetime! Its amazing!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AM*Good place to take out of*Good place to take out of town guests to with great food
*No corkage fee5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMClassy date-night spot. $$$$The Stinking Rose is quite more expensive than the Yelp reviews advertise. I'd rate it $$$$ for cost. However, the food was delicious and pleasantly arranged. The wine list, though I did not purchase any, was extensive in its variety. If you plan to take a hot date to this location, you might want to bring some mints or chewing gum for any post-dinner cuddling. EVERYTHING is garlic-y. I mean, after all, it is "garlic-themed". I tried some of the best chicken, off of my friend's plate. Personally, I order the Neon Ravioli, and boy...what a surprise. It was unlike any ravioli I've ever tasted. Even the birthday desert was garlic ice-cream.
A very unique dinner spot. I'd recommend that anyone with $30-45 per person to spend definitely try it!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood stuffWent for a birthday dinner, service was great, food was great, price was reasonable, I'd definitely go back.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday @ SRWe've been raving about it since Saturday. The food was amazing and we love that garlic is in everything. We are already planning a dinner at the Stinking Rose as an annual outing. Thank you.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday FavoriteThe Stinking Rose is one of my family's favorite places to go for a Birthday Dinner. The grilled muscles and garlic are out of this world delicious, the prime rib melts in your mouth and the pastas are absolutely scrumptious. Every meal has been a delight. Just a word for the wise--some of these meals are not for the sensitive stomach as they do use garlic!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMfoodieMussels were good. The 40 garlic chicken was not all that good. the service was great.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Niche FindI come from a German family that loves Garlic, and this place hit the spot! Be ready for a strong garlic presence, and make sure you enjoy it. I didnt find anything to complain about. The steak I got was delicious, and the other pieces that I tried from my family members plates were amazing as well. A little pricey, but you gotta expect that on La Cienega.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFit for all!!!!This restaurant is the best spot for all kinds of occasions. Its kid friendly, but it is also a great date spot. Its big enough to have romantic privacy or a big fun party. I love the bar and the speciality drinks. We all ordered something different so we could try eachothers drinks. The staff was friendly. I highly recommend and I'm coming back.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatAmazing food. Everything is garlic based but they do it soo well it's amazing. Portions are massive. I looked forward to the left overs the next day. And the price was very reasonable. I'll be back here every week if I can .4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMhusband's bdayA wonderful dining experience. The food was great. We loved the decor.

Seating was a little cramped but that's not something serious enough to ruin a prime rib that good.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance, nice waiter.Great ambiance, nice waiter. The only weird thing was that the food came out extremely fast - like too fast. It tasted fine but it just seemed really odd.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved Stinking Rose!We went to the "Stinking Rose" to celebrate a birthday and it was so much fun. They brought a Garlic Bulb Hat and a three candle candelabra, plus Garlic Ice Cream. Our table was in our own little tent, so cute. Great Experience, but must Love Garlic!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to the Stinking RoseWent to the Stinking Rose for my daughters birthday. The menu was fun, with some dishes that you don't see everywhere. My girls had the rabbit, and thought it was tasty. The filet was excellent. The prices were reasonable. I really enjoyed my martini. Can't say I am a fan of Garlic Ice Cream, but it was fun to try!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIt had been a while sinceIt had been a while since I had been, but food and service excellent as I remember.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated my daughter'sWe celebrated my daughter's birthday there & it was a fun place to do that! Service was excellent! We had the beef filet & prime rib & both were excellent! The meat was cooked just right , was tender & full of flavor. We enjoyed the sides but thought the creamed spinach was a bit rich. Giving my daughter a free birthday dessert & singing her happy birthday was a very nice touch!! Love the garlic hat!! I would recommend going there for a special occasion.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLively, fun restaurantWe are garlic lovers.
Our waiter was superb - I think his name was Stephen, I remember he was going to take his three year old daughter to Sea World the following day.
We waited in the bar for our table and the musician was incredible. I do hope he is a regular and we will arrive earlier next time, so that we might be able to listen to him longer.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first visit, andThis was my first visit, and I loved it! I had heard great things about it, and couldn't wait to try it. I was NOT disappointed in any way! Everything was wonderful! Our food server, Mike, was very kind, efficient, and on point. He was great! Oh! and the Food!! Fantastic!!! I will definitely be back!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed the food.We really enjoyed the food. Who can go wrong with garlic? It was a little spendy for the portions we received, but overall we had a great time.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty good food! The crabPretty good food! The crab and mussels sizzling plate was amazing. Kind of wish the server didn't pour the soy sauce over the food because it made it a bit too salty but it was still pretty good. Melted butter and crab dip was great. Only complaints would be the clams pasta wasn't quite as special. But I suppose it's not what the stinking rose is known for. And the full bar isn't really full since I couldn't order my dark and stormy the way I wanted it. This time around I passed on the garlic ice cream but it wasn't my cup of tea. But I would come back to eat here if I craved garlic seafood.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always have amazing mealsWe always have amazing meals while eating here, accept this time my only gripe, was that they were late seating us (went 15 minutes past our reservation), they sat us near the kitchen, which we hate, instead of an open cabana. Since we had reservations, I felt we should have been seated at the cabana. The hostest informed us that those who didn't have a reservation were waiting for a cabana, therefore they were to get one above us, which made no sense to me.
We were at the resturaunt for close to two hours, which is a really long time for us, especially as we were not drinking. Our food took 30 minutes to come out after our appetizers. Three tables who were seated after us, were served before us.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service by Aaron.Excellent service by Aaron. We were a big group with multiple orders and changes and he got it all down to a T. Food is very good as always.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the Stinking Rose,I love the Stinking Rose, I have been their several times and it never disappoints!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMToo amazing not to go!!Being a garlic friend, I have been recommended The Stinking Rose, many times. Finally, one night my friends and I decided to try it. The decor was unique to say the least, but it made the expirience fun. The server was attentive, the busboy not was even more attentive, whenever we finished a drink or our bread it was replaced in under a minute. The bread an the bread sauce are to die for. The peach tea is freshly brewed and delicious. My friends and I all ordered different things with the hopes of trying more items. Every dish was amazing, as well as the side order of mashed potatoes. The only minor bad thing I would have to say about this place is, getting our check and paying took forever, although it could have been the night or server.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFor garlic-lovers, this isFor garlic-lovers, this is paradise. Everything is infused with garlic. We loved the 40-clove chicken and the garlicky pork chop. The mashed potatoes are heavenly. The ambiance is festive. At The Stinking Rose, you'll have a fun dining experience. We took my mother during her visit to Los Angeles and had a blast.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMStinking GoodOverall, very tasty - both the foods and the cocktails! I did smell like garlic for days after, but I guess that can be expected.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints!Absolutely love this restaurant. Food is always superb and witty with its use of garlic. You can never smell it however which is good, and it never repeats afterwards.
Excellent choice of dishes with something for everyone. Garlic wine is definitely worth a try as is the garlic ice-cream. You have to try to believe! We went on a quiet Monday night after Easter which was lovely. Service friendly and extremely helpful, even offering us tasters of certain dishes. Compares vary favourably on price.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to Stinking Rose to takeWent to Stinking Rose to take my girlfriend out in LA.

As expected, the food was great, and the service superb. Mom had a great time. We will definitely be back.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMSeasoned To PerfectionAn absolute treat for the discerning palate. The Stinking Rose knows how to present a medium Prime Rib in its'intended glory. My entree had the correct marbling and the seasoning was infused throughout the cut. A great overall job.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful time andWe had a wonderful time and will go again.
