    My boyfriend and i went for a Valentine’s date. The food, service, and the atmosphere were all wonderful. We had filet mignon, mac n cheddar, fries, mashed potatoes, the buffalo crab dip appetizer, and the chocolate cake with PB mousse for dessert. It was incredibly delicious and we can’t recommend this place enough! None of the food even tasted like it was gluten free. I absolutely loved it and can’t wait to go back.

    This was our first visit to Garlic. Made Reservation thru Open Table for 5:30. Restaurant has lovely ambiance, hardwood floors, simple but tasteful decor and background music. Server and expediter were both excellent and very professional. Nothing was ever rushed and dishes were always promptly cleared. Server fully explained all specials to us. I started with a "Honey Bear" Martini. It was a great tasting, shaken pear martini. Then had the Ricotta Salad, which the Salad portion was perfectly dressed and flavorful with a few grape tomatoes...ricotta was on the side. Cracked pepper was offered. Salad has an interesting presentation...served on what appeared to be a piece of slate but it was clearly not. We had the French Onion Soup and I the Lobster Bisque. Both had great flavor. I had lobster in each spoon and the crostini was the perfect touch. I had the Special: Pan Seared Grouper with Cilantro Rice and and Broccolini and better half had the 14 Ounce Sirloin Steak, Medium Well with Garlic Mashed and Broccolini. Grouper was the best seasoned fish I have had out in ages! Cilantro Rice was moist and tasty. Steak a bit unevenly cooked but was wonderfully seasoned and juicy. The Garlic Mashed were served in a 2 inch iron skillet...again unique presentation! Both of our Broccolini was flavorful and not in any way overcooked. Because of the shear amount of food we ordered, we opted not to order appetizers/small plates or even dessert. Bill without tip was about $135 for the two of us. We left pleased!

    It is one of the nicest places in the area to dine. The food is delicious. All apps, sides and entrees are delicious. But be prepared to pay for that deliciousness. It will cost you $$$ for a meal there.

    Meal was very disappointing for being a steakhouse. 5 out of 6 people got steaks and one out of six came out correct. The one correct steak was ordered well done and that was correct. I don't mind spending good money on a steak, but when I'm charge a high price and it's not cooked correct somethings wrong. Would not recommend Garlic Steakhouse.

    We had the mustard encrusted lamb chops (special) as well as the wahoo with risotto (also a special). Both were absolutely outstanding! Oh and we had the steamed little neck clams as an appetizer. Everything was delicious and the waitress (Danielle?) was wonderfully accommodating and attentive. The only slight downside is that the kitchen door with a bright light is in the middle of the restaurant so it hurts the ambiance just a bit. Other than that it’s a terrific place to enjoy a great meal!

    Wife’s B day. She had the sword fish special, and the blackened coating was so salty (without any taste except salt) that she had to slice off the top and the bottom of the fish slab to reach the edible interior. We told the server and her response was ‘ok’.??? The asparagus was equally salty but the sweet potatoes were fine. With tax and tip that largely inedible piece of fish alone was almost $60.00. We won’t be back.

    Let me just start by saying that I work in a high end steakhouse so my expectations are a little high. I came here for a birthday dinner, the hosts/hostesses were very friendly and quickly seated us. Then the server came quickly and took a drink order. First round of drinks was good. Ordered the salmon ceviche and mussels & calamari for apps and they were excellent so I had very high hopes for steak. Then this is where things go down hill. Ordered a couple glasses of wine to go with dinner, our server manhandled the glasses while putting them on the table. And I hold the glass up to the light and it obviously hasn't been polished and now it's also covered in fingerprints. When you get a $15 glass glass of wine that's just unacceptable. My mother and I both ordered the ribeye and let me just say neither was seasoned, at all. They were completely flavorless. I could have gotten the same steak at outback and not paid $45. I will say the steaks were cooked perfectly but they just were not good. Then we ordered a skillet cookie for the table and the skillet was completely cold, and the cookie was cold and hard. Overall it just was not a good experience. Our server was friendly but not very knowledgeable or attentive. The best part of dinner was appetizers, sadly. I guess this is an ok option if you live in the Poconos and don't want to travel but in my opinion it's worth it to take the drive down to Easton or Bethlehem for a good steak
