    Stinking Rose never disappoints. The food was wonderful and service was great although the waitress was a bit busy with other tables so it took longer than anticipated to take care of the check but the food and drinks came without much wait. All in all a great experience.

    As garlic lovers, once we saw the Stinking Rose we had to try it. The concept and the energy of the place definitely gave it a fun atmosphere. The jar of fresh garlic on the table allowed us to "spice up" the food even more. My wife and loved the garlic cheese fondue and she equally enjoyed the shrimp appetizer that she had as her meal. The Little Devil Petite Filet I had was also good but in hindsight I should have added some more garlic from the jar. We had to have the garlic ice cream for dessert - my wife liked it and I didn't dislike it but I think I still like my desserts more traditional. Daniel was an outstanding server. We had plenty of questions that he patiently answered and he made excellent recommendations.

    Although I had a nice time at The Stinking Rose, I can't say I was absolutely blown away. I was expecting much more of a "garlic-y" experience. The restaurant is obviously a tourist trap, with its gaudy decor and cheesy names/foods. It was something I had on my bucket list and I am glad I went. Will I be going again? Definitely not, BUT I AM glad I went. The service was prompt, the servers were friendly, and the food was just "eh". The garlic ice-cream was interesting...Tastes like vanilla ice-cream on the first bite but after you have a VERY strong garlic aftertaste. Once again though, give it a shot if its something you've been wanting to do. If not, it's not really worth the drive or effort.

    And if you do as well, then WELCOME TO HEAVEN. Its a garlic lovers dream. The food is fantastic. Really-- you cannot go wrong with ANYTHING that you chose. I went for my most recent birthday and the staff was amazing. I will say that the host staff-- could use some managing... they were all over the place. A friend waited for 15 min in the bar, before we called her-- the host told her she was the first to arrive. They also messed up the cake that we brought. Side note: there is also NO CORKING FEE! Which we didnt realize until we got there-- but someone made a Trader Jose run and we were poppin bottles! All that aside-- the servers and staff that wait on you while you dine are AMAZING! I loved our waiter he was great!

    Our trip to The Stinking Rose was a celebration for a birthday in our small group. We advised the restaurant via the booking reservation and the hostess confirmed she had the information about the event. our waiter, Aaron, was a gem. He made the first experience for those in our group fun and memorable. He was attentive and friendly and did a great job making sure everyone was happy with their order. The serving sizes are large and the price for their average dishes are a bit more than average, but there is plenty of left over for an additional meal to enjoy later.

    It was mine and my girlfriends first anniversary and this spot was perfect romantic and great food. I especially appreciate that when I made the reservation I made a special note that it was our anniversary and would like to be seated in a more private location. Not only did the stinking rosé staff see to that request they also surprised us with congratulating us and taking a souvenir photo of us. It was quite a treat.

    The food was amazing and being garlic lovers, we loved the strong garlic aroma and flavor with our food. We ordered the primerib and the zuppa. The portions were perfect. Everything is good except the service we received that night. It was our first time there, so we had a lot of questions about the menu and what was recommended there. The server was not very helpful and seemed annoyed at our questions. Thereafter, the server just seemed to have a bad attitude towards us. Overall, the food and ambience is great, but I was really disappointed at the service provided.

    I had the prime rib with crab legs. Thought they were going to be Alaskan crab but they were Dungeness. I didn't ask, just assumed they would be Alaskan, but either way it was very good. The garlic mashed potatoes were excellent and the spinach was meh. I would definitely go back and order a pasta dish or try the chicken. Drinks are expensive so be careful. Your bill will go way up with those 12.00 margaritas.

    My first time to this resturant and it was great! Ordered the "Bagna Calda" - roasted garlic in olive oil and butter for spreadking on focaccia bread! Fantastic! The garlic cloves look whole, but spread like soft pads of button on the bread. All the entrees ordering my group were delicious and everyone was full at the end. BEST part was there's no corkage fee! I brought 2 bottles of wine and the waiter happily opened them for us and provided wine glasses. Where can you find this these days???

    I've been to this restaurant three times now and it's still good! I personally love garlic. This restaurant is perfect for people who loves garlic. I love their relish that you can put in everything! The only think that I wasn't fan of was the bread that they served. It wasn't freshly baked, and it was a little hard. Also, I would suggest more gluten free options to be added on their menu.

    I had always heard of The Stinking Rose, but until now I had never been. After making plans to attend a theatre event in L.A., I decided now would be a good time to try it out. I was more than pleased with every aspect of the dining experience. The decor was really well done, and even though I'd read reviews that said the "circus tent" atmosphere of the tables for 2/4 was a bit campy, I did not find it so. The waitstaff was very attentive, the food was exquisite and the wine list was abundant with choices. I had the Prime Rib, and my wife had the Sea Bass, and it couldn't have been any better. We decided to take a chance and try the garlic ice cream, and even it was delicious. It is served with a chocolate caramel sauce. Better like garlic!

    Even though the steak I ordered was a bit to overcooked, it was very juicy and tasteful, the mashed potatoes as well was very good! (I asked for med-well, got as good as well done.) As always, my girlfriend did not finish her dish, and I ate the rest of her pasta, that also was very tasteful. Beware of your breath the day after, you will - stink garlic!

    Love, love, love this place! From the garlic hat for birthdays, to the aroma that will waft after you for several days, this restaurant provides a great experience. I've had both steak and seafood dishes - while none are particularly cutting edge, they are well executed, tasty, perfectly cooked and thoroughly enjoyable. Some entrees can be a tad pricy (surf and turf for example) but there are items to fit every budget from $15 pasta to $25 salmon to $35 steaks. Martinis are shaken at your table for you, and there are a few craft cocktails (Basil Lugosi anyone?). Decent wine, including a fair selection by the glass, and great wall murals for your entertainment.

    I have been to The Stinking Rose on many occasions, and was looking forward to my visit this time. While the food was good, I was pretty disappointed with the very rushed service we experienced. Our server was clearing our plates as quickly as each of us finished our meals, dropping off the dessert menu while we were still eating. When he offered dessert, we explained that we wanted to wait until the last person was done eating his entree. He came back and took our dessert order, and then dropped off the check with desserts. They were busy (and I'm glad to see that); but I didn't spend $175 for 4 people for a fast food experience.

    I have dined at the stinking rose at least 5 times now. The service has always been amazing! This time our waiter was super good looking too! I have tried a few different entrees. The best is the garlic filet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes! I usually don't even like mashed potatoes. The bread was super hot and fresh out of the oven. I adore the design of the decor. Its like high end vaudeville. It has the little lights hanging and black and white cabana covered private tables. I highly recommend dining here.

    The Rose has become our go-to place for special milestones in our family. Service was horrible, horrible, horrible, and so was my meal, when the waitress finally did come to ask how everything was I told her my meal was not to par her response "yes its hit and miss with that dish" needless to say I did not eat a thing I look forward to that plate every time I am there Then to my surprise she left the charge on my bill I did leave a small tip and regret leaving one at all It was my sisters 40th and I tried to make the best of it for her and her son On another note I will return!

    The overall experience was great. However, I put in my notes on Open Table that this was a birthday and specifically requested the cake or whatever Stinking Rose had to offer. They didn't follow through with it at the restaurant. I had to go up to the front to tell them this was a birthday celebration, after we already received our bill and paid. Small overlook on their end or on Open Table, but it almost ruined a great night.

    My wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner. The food was amazing! We had our own little table that was in a "tent" and it was nice to be secluded from everyone else. The waiter was ok. He didn't check on us as often as I would had liked, and never came back to ask if my steak was prepared how I wanted it or if the food was good. He did make a great appetizer recommendation, took our order, brought our food, and then didn't come back until it was time for the check. I didn't get a refill on my drink because the waiter was no where to be found. The food though, wow! The food was amazing. I got a prime rib and it was really really good. Definitely a great place for a special occasion. Prices were a bit steep for the quality.
