I could live off of the appetizers but wouldn't want to because I'd miss the main course! Love this place, everything is amazingly tasty.

This old traditional Italian restaurant is a delight. Most tables are quiet and very private, separated from the next in the row by colorful tapestries. Great for conversation. Interior decoration is really well done, creating great ambiance.
Food was excellent (and of course garlicy). I had the prime rib, my wife the salmon. Both were perfectly done. A wide range of wines is available by the glass or bottle.
Service was friendly and well-timed.
Overall, highly recommended.

If you like garlic, you’ll definitely love this place! This place is everything garlic. Beware, you’ll burp garlic all day, but it’s way worth it. I recommend getting the Bagna Calda for your bread and can also use it for your entree. It is roasted garlic swimming in olive oil that is so soft, it spreads like butter. Also the short rib is excellent! It super tender, it melts in your mouth. Love this place! Not one thing bad about it except your breath when you’re done!

Delicious prime rib and garlic. Louisiana Shrimp should be called Shrimp Ciopinno. Delicious by any name. Handicap access was awkward. Waiters were easy and accommodating.

Absolutely fabulous! This place never disappoints...this is only my second time there, but the experience surpassed my first experience that was nothing but positive. The staff here are the best and know what to recommend for the picky eaters. The salmon is the bomb! The mashed potatoes are dynamite! And let’s not forget the stuffed raviolis...OMG!!! Thanx Stinking Rose for the awesome hospitality and phenomenal food. I will definitely be back and will always recommend to my friends/family.

Everything was delicious. The staff is really attentive, however, we felt kind of rushed because as soon as a plate was done, the bus staff was there to clear it but they didn’t always ask if we were done...when food is arriving from one side and someone is behind you clearing something on the other side of you, it makes guests kind of anxious because there’s so much going on. They were efficient for sure, but slowing down and being sure guests are ready for things to be cleared would be a nice touch.

I was really looking forward to this experience. I had been wanting to go here for 10 years. I was a little disappointed with the food. I had Salmon, it was dry and didnt have any garlic flavoring. The cost seemed pricey for the quality. The menu seemed small and not a ton of variety. The restaurant seemed cute when entering with souvenirs and hot sauces to buy at reception, but overall the restaurant seemed run down. On the other hand, the service was amazing. The waiter was so friendly and accommodating. I'm glad I finally tried this place, but will probably not go back.

The atmosphere was good and everyone enjoyed their meals except for one dish that was not technically "a soup" more like a tomato marinade, but other than that it was very enjoyable. When the bill came we were not asked how we would like it split since it was a rather large party and the server left us to figure it out, which was a pain until we had to really ask that she distribute the bill according to each couple that ordered. So the evening was a little soured by that exchange, but overall the food was good just the servers need to use a little common sense when handling large parties to prepare for when the check comes.

Even if you’re NOT a big garlic fan, every use of the ‘stinking rose’ was tastefully done! Ive been to the original SF location which has been around for 27 years. Much to my surprise, the Beverly Hills Location has been around for 25 years!

I travel several times a month to foodie locations like New Orleans, SF and NYC. This place is in my top 10. Maybe even the top 5.

The food was excellent! This visit, I had a 12oz Ribeye with garlic mashed, garlic creamed spinach, smothered in mushrooms in garlic oil and covered with roasted garlic! For the appetizer, I had the French onion garlic potato soup with a flaky crust.

I’m 6ft, 250 lb hungry male and the Ribeye was too much for me to finish and asked for a box!

Don’t for get to ask for a garlic hat and a selfie with Rosie!

Food was amazing. Was not expecting the steak to be such good quality considering it wasn’t a steakhouse but the filet mignon melted in your mouth. There wasn’t one thing me and my husband ordered that we didn’t thoroughly enjoy. Staff was nice and attentive and came to check on us periodically.

I always wanted to eat here, especially now that my husband has turn me on to garlic. The evening was great and I had a great time with my family. I enjoyed the romantic setting. Even my daughters loved it. She’s four and she kept telling me how much she loves the restaurant. She even recognized it the next day on our way home from her doctors appointment, that’s says a lot.

If you love garlic, you've come to the right place. Almost anything on the menu, garlic is at the forefront and definitely lives up its name. The ambiance is great but it is certainly borderline Disneyland - with the props and the costumes. The food itself was great but with everything tasting like garlic, it was hard to discern from dish to dish. I do recommend getting dessert. I didn't get the garlic ice cream but I did get one of the ice cream sundae. I was pleasantly surprised at the size and the wow-factor.

Interesting restaurant. Definitely garlicky, which we love. Food was good, not great. Service was ok, not great. We ordered dessert and coffee after our dinner and they brought the check before the dessert and coffee. We felt rushed and thought they must need the table yet when we left, no one was waiting. Again, ok as a novelty.

Where shall I begin? I guess I’ll start with DO NOT Order the Rib Rye steak expecting to receive an actual rib eye steak. Instead what they will serve you is a piece of Prime Rib that they seared on both ends to try to fool you into thinking it’s a Rib Eye. As soon as it arrived and before I even touched it I called the waiter back and politely explained that I didn’t order a Prime Rib but rather a Rib Eye. He insisted it was a Rib Eye. He went to check with the Chef and came back and insisted it was in fact a Rib Eye. WRONG!!!! I explained to the waiter that he’s wrong and so is their so called “chef”. I understand a Rib Eye Steak and a cut of Prime Rib come from the same slab of beef but once the prime rib is cooked it is in fact prime rib roast and NOT a Rib Rye steak. Your customers are not idiots and in fact some of us are actually professionally trained culinary artists. The entire way this was handled was wrong all around and I’ll never step foot in that dump.

The food & service was excellent, but it was so dark that it was difficult to read the menu. I had to use the flashlight on my phone - maybe candles on the table would help. It's a bit on the pricey side but then you are in Beverly Hills. $7.50 for parking is a bit high. Overall, it was a nice dining experience and looking forward to going back.
