With its exposed brick walls and dark wood furnishings, the ultra-inviting Garage Restaurant and Café serves modern American fare with soul. Appetizer options include the exotic mushroom beggar's purse, filo dough stuffed with mushrooms and cheese, as well as the apricot and ginger glazed flame-grilled jumbo shrimp with a mango avocado salsa. House specialties, like the Roquefort-topped filet mignon, the lobster ravioli and the garlic-crusted chicken with mashed potatoes, deliciously demonstrate Garage Restaurant and Café's commitment to quality.
Check out Garage Restaurant and Café on Sundays, when live jazz bands play while a decadent brunch is served. The French vanilla soaked French toast, surf and turf egg benedicts and the farmer's market omelet are reason enough to head to Garage.
Great little place. Best time is brunch with unlimited cocktails! Better looking on the inside than the outside!
Went for brunch excited that their menu includes an entire section of eggs bendict. I couldn't have been more disappointed. The hollandaise was an odd, thin and tasteless neon colored glaze, the crab and lobster cakes were more bread than anything and the mimosas were intolerable sweet. Major disappointment. Service was prompt and friendly and the jazz band was a welcomed distraction.
We went to the Garage on a MONDAY night and everything was just as great as the last time we were there. It felt like a Thursday or Friday. The food the service, oh and by the way, Kudos to Alexandria, our server thank you. The live jazz and the wine selection just as good as the first time we visited. We plan on going back in 2016 many times over.
I heard a rumor that this restaurant is to be sold soon. If true, too bad...
I would not recommend as this restaurant is closing. We were there Sat Dec 11 and they told us they were closing in 3 weeks. Dinner came out right after appetizer, not right. Dinner was not hot and not particularly good. We had to keep selecting different wines as they aren't restocking. Decor was quite nice. Probably was better when everyone wasn't about to lose their jobs. Merry Christmas.
My party and I were gathering for a holiday brunch/gift exchange, and we settled on Garage to satisfy each participant's requirements. The bottomless mimosas were delicious and rapidly replenished, the jazz band was entertaining and lively, and we had adequate space to talk and pass (small, unwrapped) presents. Our festivities were enhanced by the tasteful, seasonally appropriate decor, which included an upside-down tree suspended from the ceiling. The food was decent, nothing to write home about, but it was served promptly and with no hassles -- in fact, much kudos goes to our waitstaff for their pleasant and prompt performance. Overall, I'd recommend Garage as a destination for a fun and accessible dining experience.
The food was absolutely amazing.
Food was typical brunch food. Large menu. Price a great - $16.95 for an entree and drink for brunch. The band was good too.
The staff, food, atmosphere and music was great!!!
