It was Valentine's weekend, so I knew what I was signing up for. Very busy, but our server handled things well.

Already had a terrible experience before arriving to the restaurant. I wanted in my car for 20 minutes in order to get my car into valet. Also I booked at this restaurant for valentines day for special occasion. They squeeze two tables into one cabana which provides no privacy. Our server, Aaron, was terrific customer service and the food was great. The environment of the restaurant was awful, therefore I would never go back to this restaurant again.

Server kept pushing us to order, kept rushing us to order, eat and leave. Reception staff very unfriendly. Valet service on website says $7.00, was charged $10.00. Took 15 minutes to get our car and not friendly. We spent $170.00 there and feel they were not appreciative at all.
Will not return, will tell friends and family not to go here.

It was nice, but we were very rushed by the waiter. By the time our appetizers came out and we had maybe two bites our main course was out, forcing us to get the appetizers to go. We won’t be going back. It was Valentine’s Day with a 4:30 reservation and we had our check by 5:15.

Had very high expectations for this place, as it's on the same row of restaurants as Lawry's and other nicer establishments. It was very disappointing to walk into a place with uncomfortably dim lighting, kitschy decorations, and lackluster hosts and wait staff. Overpriced and underwhelming food.

I’ve always come to expect amazing times at this place. Everything is wonderful, from the people to the food. The prices are amazingly approachable for being in BH haha. I look forward to coming back, as I always do! The themed interior is a view in and of itself! I finally tried the garlic ice cream, it’s worth the risk, try it! Thank you!

Everything was great but my 40 clove chicken could have been better, it felt kinda basic and honestly undercooked

It’s a very nice restaurant. Not loud and a great place to have dinner or any other occasion that you are celebrating. The food is very good and the people working there are very nice and attentively. Will go back soon.

Not for foodies. I didn’t realize this was a gimmicky sort of place. I thought it was a real restaurant that just used lots of garlic. The only thing I found edible was the sautéed garlic, but it was divine. Would be great for kids or non-foodie tourists. Service was excellent though. And the ambiance is kitschy-fun.

Very attentive service made for a wonderful, pre-show dining experience. The fact they let you leave your car there when attending a performance at the Saban made it the perfect choice. That made everything so much easier and added to the enjoyment of the night.

Our server was great, the decor unique – but you can’t eat wallpaper. The food was OK but woefully overpriced. Very very limited menu, especially for lunch.

My last night out in LA, me and my group had dinner here and the food was amazing! I ordered the fettuccine with modifications, including chicken and alfredo sauce and I was pleased at the wait staff’s willingness to accommodate this request. One possible con would be that we went near closing and the service was a bit slower than expected. Otherwise, I would definitely return during my next visit to LA!

Great steaks, seafood, appetizers in a setting that's fun but still allows you to converse with your dinner companions. The vanilla sundae was surprisingly good--tasted like homemade ice cream and served at the perfect temperature with no melting or crystallization. It may seem silly to talk about something as simple as a vanilla sundae when they also do wonderful grilled seafood platters and excellent steaks, but it's actually rare to see something so basic executed so well. Stinking Rose continues to impress.

The staff was polite and very attentive. The food was well prepared and came out in a very timely manner. Prices are definitely worth it for the quality and the portions. Definitely a must go if you like a good steak or seafood. Warning you will smell like garlic if you come here I’m certain everyone knows about it but who knows.

I ordered salmon. It was overcooked and dry. One friend ordered baby back ribs, which he thought were also overcooked and dry. The third member of our party ordered garlic chicken. We ordered the DineLA Week prix fixe menu which was $39, which include a small Cesar salad, entree and frozen vanilla custard. I thought it was over-priced for the quality of 2 of the three entrees. My recommendation to anyone eating there would be to order the chicken.

We go here about once a year with some of our friends. The food is always fine and we love the garlic bread and spread. They recently raised the prices a fair amount which is too bad - were not quite priced out but will probably go less often.

But barring price the food is good, fun ambiance, good service.
