Had a wonderful [day before] Fathers Day dinner with the 2 most important dads' in my life; my own father and the father of my kids. Both are major, good and/or gourmet cuisine foodies. My husband had the Chilean sea bass on a bed of spiced bean puree. He's still raving about it. My father and I both had steak; him filet mignon and me the ribeye. Both were cooked to perfection. Our server, Luke (his second day at Garlic) was attentive and his service was spot on. The only minor, less than wonderful part of the night was the tuna tartar appetizer. Otherwise, I/we would highly recommend Garlic.
Very good food and service. Excellent drink menu.
Expensive gem in the area.
Server Alex was excellent. I say this because of problems I had with the meal and he handled my polite complaining like a champ. I've rarely complained to servers, but considering the rather high prices of Garlic, I thought the food should live up to the pricing. The tuna tartar was extremely bland -- a dash of good sauce was on the plate, but it was far too little to use with the entire volume of tuna. The tuna also had a very distinct fishy smell -- the kind that usually indicates that it's a bit old. I ate it after Alex brought some salt and pepper for the blandness, and I didn't get sick -- so, that's a win. I ordered the filet mignon medium-rare (and it even came impaled with a stick stating "Medium-rare"), but it was medium-well. I figured $45 for an 8 oz. piece of meat better be done the way I want it to be done, so I sent it back. The refire took about fifteen minutes, but it was worth it. The rub on the steak was fantastic. Would I go back? Maybe. I'm a local to the area and know there are plenty of comparable restaurants for less money. This one seems more aimed at the tourist market -- people visiting with vacation money to burn.
Great overall experience. Nice dining atmosphere. Wait staff was average when it comes to fine dining.
Very nice restaurant, the inside tables for two are a little small, food was very good but pricey. My friend and I had a half salad each, and I may have been charged for a whole and didn't catch it until I got home, a small plate, and a martini and the bill was over $45 pp. Small plates are definitely over priced. Again very good, some entrees seemed on par with pricing but be prepared to pay for it. I would go back but wouldn't risk a $65 entree special. I only go to mid-high end restaurants so I know what the average pricing is for like entrees. Service was friendly and atmosphere very nice.
This was a family dinner first time at this place, and we found it to be very good.
The cocktails were great. The food and service was excellent. Live music (classical guitar) was a perfect addition to it. We will be back.
Tuna tartare and lobster Mac and cheese were amazing! The special ribeye was good but not worth $62.00
We were pleasantly surprised! We sat outside and had a good meal, good service and ambiance. We were in area for on evening and we spent it well!
It was Wonderful!!! Food and Service!!
I had a wonderful meal here. It is a bit pricey but it was exactly what I was looking for on my vacation. Cocktails we're good, food was good, and I love the ambiance. I would definitely go back with a group of friends and share plates. You can definitely do tapas here.
It was great service and the food was very good .
For a steak and seafood place I was disappointed they did not have wild caught fish
Food was fantastic. But the service was even better!
Good food, excellent service nice patio dinner! Really enjoyed this oasis.
From start to finish the dinner was amazing. We ordered the ricotta salad, tuna tartare and black jack to start. They were all delicious. My sisters got the grouper special and I ordered the seafood garlic pasta. All mouth watering. Service was also great
Amazing service and our server was phenomenal. Thumbs up.
The food ..service..and decor was a pleasant surprise for the area!!Everything was delicious and the waiter was friendly and knowledgeable!!cant wait to go back
Garlic' is a great restaurant with outstanding service. We went for Mother's Day and we ordered their seafood special which was outstanding. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, with the bar area in front and the eating area in the back. If you plan to eat at this restaurant just be prepared that it is not an inexpensive place to dine.
Found this by random in the internet and we got very lucky. Great food and service. Scallops, salad and some specifics for the order were on target. Wished we lived nearby but we will remember if we are ever in need of good food and driving through the area.
This was my husband and I's first time here. We came for a date night because someone had given us a gift certificate. We were overwhelmingly pleased. The service and attentiveness we received from our waiter, Kevin, was unbelievable. Our drinks were delicious. The food was incredible. We sat outside, and it was a beautiful evening. We will definitely be back on a regular basis from now on!
Very nice restaurant. Steaks and sides were very good and service was excellent.
My husband and I went to Garlic on a Saturday night. The hostesses were very pleasant; our table was ready when we arrived. Our server took a few minutes coming to greet us, but was very personable and friendly once he arrived. Highlights were the Purple Rain martini, calamari, filet, and Mac & cheese side. We were not very impressed with the ribeye (pieces very grisly and impossible to eat, not the best impression made by a $49 steak), mashed potatoes (runny), and “homemade” French fries (about the same quality/taste as wegmans brand done in the air fryer at home). All-in-all, it was a nice night out, we’re glad we tried it, however, it won’t be our top choice next time we want to go out for a steak dinner.
We had a party of 18 and the service was amazing! The food was the best in the area ranging from incredible seafood dishes, to juicy steaks, awesome salads, out of this world crab appetizer. All of our meals were great and the service was top notch! A little pricey for the area but the experience was well worth it. We'll be back for sure!
My expectations were blown away. What a fantastic place, we will be returning very soon. Kyle was so knowledgeable of the menu and was a delight to have as a server.
35th Wedding Anniversary! Special night of great service, delicious meal and the cocktails were excellent.
This is the best restaurant in town! If you don’t know what to order just ask your server and you can’t go wrong, ESPECIALLY if it’s kevin!!!
Can't go wrong with the seafood Garlic. So so good.
Kevin, our waiter, was very friendly and attentive. Monk fish special, although delicious, a bit overpriced.
Food is prepared in a very attractive and tasteful manner. Service was attentive and knowledgeable. Ambiance did not meet the menu pricing, which was high even for a major City. 3 people having a total of 2 glasses of wine, a shared appetizer, 2 desserts and coffee with entrees total $229 before tip.
Eggplant Parmesan stack was very good. Seafood garlic was good. The quality of the scallops was excellent but the sauce was too heavy and way too salty. This restaurant is overpriced and the portions are only modest. Waiter uses high-pressure techniques to upsell. Background music was annoying contemporary pop and the artwork was also tasteless
Great food. Friendly staff. Was more fancy then expected not sure my party was dressed up enough but overall great time and happy stomach
Menu choices were good. Food was overpriced. There were items on our bill that were not ours. We had 2 salads, 3 steaks, 2 martinis, 2 beers and a coke and it was 220.00 without tip.... probably won’t go back.
Good wine and dessert, and everything in between! Every dish was delicious and the staff was courteous and helpful and gave great service. Nice variety of food selections too. A great place to celebrate a special occasion or to impress a special guest :)
Went for our Anniversary and enjoyed the experience. Kyle our waiter was excellent! Knew everything about the menu and was very helpful. One thing I didn't like, I thought it was over priced. Overall, had a great experience.
Food was amazing! Only complaint is the waiter wouldn’t give us each our own check with what we ordered, we were a party of nine and he split it evenly, we asked him not to and he said that’s the only way he could do it. And we all know that’s not true. But great overall, would definitely recommend!!
I love this place! The food is always great! And so is the service . Also I love the atmosphere. One of my favorite places
What a lovely experience. Second time dining here in six months and definitely refreshing to find consistent standards in quality of staff and food. I will definitely return and recommend this restaurant without hesitation. Everyone we encountered was friendly, attentive, and engaging. Thank you!
Excellent dining experience. Compliments to the chef, the bar has a martini menu that is very good.
Great food and service! Fun atmosphere. A real gem in the Poconos!
