Best new place in town. Reminds me of the open air cafe's of New Orleans and Paris. The food is spectacular. Try the beet salad. It will knock your socks off! Best fish sandwich in town. Flatbreads, burgers, and a couple of fine dining options. Check out the concert venue downstairs. Fun place with great food right in the heart of the Ludlow shopping district in Clifton. Super fun people watching (wink). Graeter's afterwards.

Great casual place for a burger. The atmosphere was fun with the garage doors up on a really nice night. Beer list was just right - lots of choices without being overwhelming. We will definitely go back!

Shockingly good. Friendly staff and clientele. Just couldn't do hotel food so open table and uber apps to the rescue.

I was going to a concert downstairs, and decided to get dinner at the restaurant. It was crowded that night because of the show, but I had a reservation and got a table easily. It was SO busy that the food took a little longer, which I simply considered a good problem for the restaurant to have! They were short a couple of people, but my waitress was working her butt off, and I didn't feel ignored at any time. While I was there I ended up chatting with people from the neighborhood who weren't even there for the show, just for a drink or dinner because they loved the place so much. I got the Pinot Noir that was on tap (I love places with wine on tap) and the Italian sausage flatbread, which was HUGE and delicious, I had to take half of it home. I met the manager, who was lovely and very fun to talk to. I highly recommend this if you're going to a show there (make sure you get a reservation) You can eat in the venue, so if you're not done with your food you may take it with you to your seat and finish it.

Open garage doors make for great Clifton street ambience. The food is so so. Good for pre-concert dining only.

Great food & Atmosphere, its located in a lively neighborhood with lots to do near by. They have a small venue concert hall in the basement so you can catch live music there when they have shows, we seen Carbon Leaf there & it was awesome.

First visit. So pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, and the excellent staff service. Ruby Trout over rice and a delicious sauce was perfectly filling, and a great price, $19.00! Then went went downstairs and saw an Icon, Jesse Colin Young. One of best, intimate concerts I've been to. Recommend the Garage for food, drinks, and concerts! Limited seating, so get tickets early and make dining reservations.

Under new ownership, the Ludlow Garage's food has escalated in a great way! A simpler menu with tons of beer options, I had high hopes going in and was not disappointed. My only suggestion is that some days are way too hot to have the garage door open. It wasn't bad though. Great food and excellent service! Even the hostess on staff was very friendly.

This was my first time here. It was my friend’s birthday and we had tickets to a concert in the lower level. Great food and awesome service. We all got something different and each of our meals were very good. Definitely will come back, I love the garage doors that open and the overall vibe of the place was great.

Newly renovated and under new ownership, this local gem combines great ambience, excellent and friendly staff, and a small but superb menu of affordable delights. With "garage doors" that open up to the sidewalk (temperature permitting), it provides all the positives of outdoor dining with none of the negatives. Bonus: there is an intimate concert venue downstairs with a wide range of musical programming already on the calendar for the coming months. (Hint: It's a small restaurant/bar, so reserve your table for a pre-concert meal, and you won't be disappointed.)

we had tickets for a concert at Ludlow Garage and decided to make reservations for dinner beforehand. this is our 3rd trip to LG for shows but our first sit down dining experience, since we failed to make reservations the previous two times and it was quite full.

food was very good. I had the trout entrée (heart healthy!) with risotto and my wife had crab cake sliders, she really liked them as well. staff was super nice. mgr checked in mid meal, which is always nice.

the garage doors were up and it was a pretty nice evening for June. I enjoyed the ambiance of the local neighborhood and people watching after ordering.
