Service was great! Food was incredible!
I came here with a friend for a fun smelly get-together. We made reservations on their website. We arrived 13 minutes late due to personal issues, but we were seated immediately upon arrival! We got the seafood platter on the iron skillet. It was SO DELICIOUSSSSSS. Their garlic bread wasn't bad, we smothered it in their garlic olive oil which was fantastic!
It’s more of a family get-together. Whenever my parents are visiting they always want to eat at the Stinking Rose, in fact, it’s become a tradition of our’s since I moved to LA from New Jersey. We love it every time.
The food and environment is always overall good.You can never go wrong here,also if your a garlic person this is the spot for you,they specialize in alot of garlic.
Had a GREAT time it was our 28th wedding anniversary. Food and service were spot on..... Will most likely go back. Thank you Stinking Rose!!
The food was awesome as usual. The only downside was the server was inattentive. She brought one cocktail and we had to ask someone to get our waiter to get the second cocktail. And I had requested a tent table and we were placed in a booth
I made a reservation expecting to have a nicer seating area. I had been here before with a friend, and I was seated in the far back, next to a wall, staring at tents, and nothing. The food was really amazing my first time, so I was excited to introduce this restaurant to my husband. For this time around, I specifically stated that it was a "date night" occasion. My husband and I were seated in the exact same place - the "forgotten" area, far far away from any of the nice decor, which felt a little sad since there were many other open seating options during the hour that we arrived. We never got refills for our water. I ordered the "Garlic in a Bath", but I had to cancel the order; we were already more than halfway through our dinner, and the dish never came. My husband ordered his ribeye steak medium rare, but it came out practically medium well. I wanted my husband to enjoy the experience since we rarely go out anywhere, and this was a belated Valentine's dinner. I feel sad that I had to listen to my husband tell me how we probably wouldn't come back here again. We took a 45 minute drive out to this location, and I had hoped that it would've been worth it...
The one in San Francisco is much better. We ordered the muscles with shrimp and crab we got more muscles than anything. I think we got like eight shrimp and probably like four or five pieces of crap I would suggest ordering the muscles on the side next time. We seen the person who serves the water more than we did our waitress. I gave him a big tip.
Good experience! Recommend the prime rib. However, the filet mignon was just ok. Free uncorking.
The three most important ingredients in a meal include all of the following, garlic, garlic, and garlic. Our meal started with garlic cloves on focaccia bread and ended with garlic ice cream and we had a lot of garlic dishes in between. The food in my opinion and as you might have guessed was spectacular and the service was well orchestrated delivering the dishes hot and on time.
Food is great and it's a really fun atmosphere there!!!
It's an okay place with average food at a fairly high price. I'd stick with he seafood offerings , avoid the ribs. Portions are average but with only one side choices, mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and mixed vegetables, at their prices you should get two not one. It's a nice atmosphere and service was good. My first time there and I'll give it another shot.
Everything was amazing! Great food and service.
Look, it’s kitschy. Go with four of you, sit in a private little tent, you’ll dig it. Cozy, not swanky.
The 40 clove garlic chicken was amazing. 1/2 a chicken, moist and the sauce on it was wonderful! The short ribs were equally as good, very tender, and lots of flavor.
The warm bread rolls and garlic, parsley, olive oil spread was super yummy!
Enjoyed our dinner very much!
Went to Strinking Rose because of Valentines Day but even with reservations, I still had to wait 30+ minutes to sit down. I came last year for Valentines Day and had no problem but this was kinda like the icing on the cake because of LA traffic. Other attendees complained also because no one was sure if they had overbooked or is just plain unorganized. Also my rib eye was just all fatty
The worst management and service ever. Overbooked the restaurant 10x capacity. All had same time reservation but no tables. A long line to park and to get in to see anyone from the restaurant staff. Over 1 hour wait to be seated if you had reservations. Needless to say we left and spent our evening enjoying ourself at another restaurant.
Very greedy restaurant.
The decor of Strinking Rose was unique. Food quality and quantitie was great. Overall restaurant was amazing would make a second visit soon.
Made my reservation 2 days before Valentines Day. Always got the feeling this place wasn't that popular because it's across the street from Lawry's so it's always easy to get a reservation. But by the time we arrived at the valet, there was a line out the door. Soon as we got out of the car the valet asked if we had a reservation. I guess ppl come here without a reservation usually even on Valentines day? For holidays they won't seat you until your entire party has arrived so we waited in the bar area. The bar isn't anything special, just a long bar and some tables with only like 2 bartenders. When we finally sat down to our table for dinner, the waitress was great! This place doesn't have corkage fees?? How is that possible, we asked? They are under an old cabaret license which lets them do this..AWESOME. By far the pork chops was the best dish with the bagna calda appetizer of course. The lamb & prime rib was great too but still 2nd to the pork chop. We finished off with the garlic ice cream. Overall this place is great for food, ambience and service.
