I will start by saying, our waitress was amazing. She was so sweet and very attentive, as was all the staff we dealt with. The food was awful. I wouldn’t recommend anything I the menu. Super bland, and for the price... awful. I ordered an appetizer the garlic meatballs. For $15.99, there were 4 mini meatballs (RIDICULOUS) and they were disappointing. Good thing we filled up on the never ending bread!

We wanted something different so we headed here! We ate early because we were going to NerdNite at 7. We split a small salad (should have ordered the larger one) and the veggie lasagne. Both were great! We loved the bread too. I don’t understand why everyone goes on and on about the garlic... it was the right amount in everything we ordered and not too much. From where we were sitting, all the tables had privacy because each one was surrounded on 3 sides by a cute awning. It is a fun place and service was fantastic!

Food was alright. Drinks were horrible. Prime rib was the best thing we ordered but overall it was an ok experience. Probably won’t come back. One time type of experience. Just for the hype.

I reserved a table for a party of 9 just in case they were busy. We walked in and we were able to sit immediately (although they did not seem to crowded). We were greeted with garlic bread w| butter and had lovely waiter. He made recommendations, answered all of our questions, and made sure our experience was great! I had the 18oz ribeye cooked medium which came out excellent and tasted magnificent! I would keep going back and definitely recommend.

My girlfriend & I wanted to check out this place for the last stop of our CA trip (we went to the one in Beverly Hills), and we were blown away. Almost stayed another day just to experience the deliciousness one more time before leaving. We got the Potato soup & Caesar to start. My girl doesn’t like Caesar salad but ate more than me for this one. We got the garlic chicken pasta & petite Filet for entree & WOW they were both incredible.
The martinis were also super on point.
And the garlic ice cream... I couldn’t tell if I liked but so kept eating it then it was gone. I’m still not sure but I’d definitely get it again. Highly recommend & we’ll definitely be back

Their team approach to serving the customer was key. From the moment we were greeted we were asked throughout the night if we were okay and if we needed anything to please ask, but gave us enough space for us to enjoy an intimate dinner.

The food was amazing and unforgettable, only regret not trying this place before.

Fun date night... on lover’s lane! We had a yummy meal with salmon for me and short ribs for him. Had a French guillotine which was a great drink. Fun atmosphere and just the right amount of service.

The service was excellent! Our drinks and food served quickly. Little devil filet mignon ordered by 3 out of 4 of us amazingly delicious. Shrimp pasta was just okay. We celebrated our dads retirement and they helped make it special with free garlic ice cream and a pic with the garlic hat. Thank you!!

Been a few times, this recent visit was different. Service was sub-par, no one seemed to be happy to work there, and food was ok and not the quality I have received in the past. Probably won’t be returning for a while until they fix their staff.

It has literally been about 15 years since my last visit. Not for any reason other than I have my regular spots. The food was very dry. Not only for myself (pork chops and fries) but my friend had pasta and his was very dry. He didnt finish it. There were 6 of us and the consensus was the same. Lack luster. May try again but in another 15 years.

The portobello mushroom stake(steak) is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever eaten! I wasn’t too happy with the drinks, but every other thing I tasted was not to disappoint.

I had my daughter's graduation dinner for 11 people at the Stinking Rose and the overall dinner experience was positive.
The staff was very accommodating from start to end; they allowed me to come in early and add a few personal decorations to the table, they helped split the check and they allowed me to bring in a cake. Our server, Marisol was awesome and she was attentive in just the right doses!
CONS: The acoustics in the restaurant are poor so it was hard to have conversations with a person directly across the table from me.
Valet is $7 and that isn't posted anywhere, nor does the valet guy tell you when you arrive. I rarely carry cash these days....I mean, really, who does? No cash? No problem....I thought, I would just pay with a card. Unfortunately, valet doesn't accept cards. Umm...ATM? Nope. They don't have one. This made things pretty embarrassing for me and a few others in my party as we were leaving. It also held things up in the driveway area which is also frustrating for other guests. Get an ATM on site or start accepting cards to avoid unnecessary embarrassment for your guests and to keep that valet line flowing. The experience outside was a crappy way to end the great time that I just had inside.

I would and have recommended this wonderful restaurant to family members, however, on this particular visit the star of the show was a bitter disappointment. The Garlic Roasted Prime Rib has been my signature birthday meal for the past 25 years. The cut of meat we were served that night was not like anything I've experienced there. The cut was tough and flavorless. So much of a disappointment that we returned the item for a replacement item. The customer service and everything else we ordered was wonderful. The Prime Rib was the star of the show.

Visited The Stinking Rose on August 2019. We have had dinner in the past and was pleased. This last time was not so great. The food is priced very high, and it was very disappointing to have to pay the bill knowing we were not please with the food at all. We were a party of four. Two of us ordered the chicken, there was no flavor at all in the meat of the chicken. The only flavor was from the sauce poured over. We also ordered the ravioli, this was priced at $25.99, way over priced. I feel the pasta was frozen and topped with more sauce. But the WORST order was the pork chop, that absolutely did not have any flavor at all at the price of $29.99!!!! I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone let alone be returning. Bottom line - food had no taste.

Went there for my birthday. Awesome service and excellent food. We are surprised by the quality of the steak we had there. Bagna Calda is a must order item. It was so good to go with their complimentary bread. Yum!
