The Stinking Rose
Birthday celebrations are great at this venue
Walking into the restaurant we could feel the ambiance and of course smell the garlic which was so pleasing to our nostrils. When we were seated, couldnt help but love the "tented booth". It truly helped enhance our dining experience. Our server arrived promptly and placed us immediately at ease. As for the food, each and every course was spectacular and oh so tasty. I have never b4 eaten garlic as I did that night. The bread was even awesome. We had the Shrimp & Mussels as an appetizer, the amount of the food was very rare for an upscale restaurant. Our entrees came to our table rather quickly and sizzling hot. I must admit the cost of a glass of wine to me was a little high especially with the size of the pour. We culminated our dining experience (read as pleasure) with the Garlic ice cream, the wife wasn't a big fan of it, I however, found it tasty. The total bill was about as I expected. We most definitely will be back sometime in the near future. But wish they would open a restaurant in San Diego.
The food was wonderful we ordered the prime rib and rib eye steak, cooked to our request. Popcorn garlic calamari for appetizer was more than enough for two. One negative review would be the house cab which tasted worse than 2 buck chuck from trader joe’s. I would commend them with great service and they were able to fulfill my special request
The service is always amazing here. I highly recommend if you love steak and garlic.
Really enjoyed the food
Fantastic place. One of the best Ribeye steaks I have ever had.
Everyone was very professional . The evening was perfect from the valet to the end of dinner
We were Celebrating my mom's Birthday ! Very good service. Excellent food. Freindly stuff.
Sat outside with our small service dog. The service and food were great. I would recommend the Stinking Rose to anyone.
The food was not seasoned with garlic or any seasonings. . If I want crab feast for $129.00 no sides comes with it .... Very disappointing
What a fun night with Friends for my birthday! Great food, great service. No corkage fee for my wine.
We love the atmosphere, classy, fun , majestic, Erie and spooky depending on what room you're in ..One of a kind. For being a nicer restaurant, drinks were spot-on and the service was outstanding. Our 3rd tiime there, cant believe we hadnt been sooner. Food is unbelievable and are truly Masters of the garlic flavors. From subtle to in your face seems can do it all. Our personal favorites so far are the ribeye steaks. Been to plenty of steakhouses, and this is definitly one of the best so far.
Delicious bread, delicious spread, AMAZING prime rib. Literally nothing to complain about.
Great food, service and ambiance!
Must love Garlic! Really fun place, gave me an Alice in Wonderland but Vampire vibe. A girlfriend and I decided to give it a try and it was a great choice! Everyone was friendly, food was amazing- i highly recommend!
The food and service was poor. The handicap accommodations were less than satisfactory.
Food was awesome and reasonable. The style are great. Parking price was not bad at all only 7.50!
It was a great experience, my date an I were but late on our reservation but it wasn’t a problem to the they also changed our table for us at no problem when we had requested. The food came out in a timely manner and it was amazing. No negative notes at all it was amazing
Awesome place l.! Great food unique experience. Love it
The short rib was OUTSTANDING. Otherwise the food was fine. The service was so weirdly bad—. Never came to refill water, never brought the check, then never came to pick it up— even though they hovered from time to time— I brought in husband for a surprise that they totally blew when we walked in. Even after a 3 calls from the restaurant to confirm. Also just know it’s extremely kitschy and empty at 8pm on a weeknight. If the food wasn’t as amazing as it was I would have been so embarrassed for having the dinner there.
I was extremely happy with the recent service received for my boyfriend's birthday. We we're seated in a lovely private area which is what I requested.
Our waitress and other staff made his birthday dinner wonderful. We will definitely be coming back again as we absolutely loved the food and our overall experience. Thank you for being a part of our special day together.
I’ve been to his restaurant twice and I think it’s great. I like the interior which doesn’t feel like it’s a super upscale restaurant, it’s playful but looks nice. The food is amazing and it’s always difficult to decide what to order.
Thank you for wonderful service and for making my friend’s birthday day special. Such a wonderful experience.
Absolutely incredible service and delicious food! Overall amazing experience! Great place to celebrate with your family / friends.
My family and I went to The Stinking Rose to celebrate mother’s day. When I made my reservations I had requested to sit in draculas grotto, and when we arrived there was a table in there large enough for my party of 8. The service was amazing and so was the food! This restaurant has made happy regulars of my family.
Whenever a Waiter stats the cook is to busy to make a slight change to your dish it's going down hill. Between that and the rising cost. I'm thinking it's the last visit.... And what happen to the garlic spread. It is so intense it stings your mouth. Wow ..
Wife had a desire for years to eat at The Stinking Rose. Made reservations and came from Ventura County. Got seated within 10 minutes of our reserved time. Decor was great. Service was a pretty slow and minimal. The restaurant was decently busy but no reason to wait about 25 minutes after being seated to place orders. Had to continue to wait and ask for service on drink refills. Waiter denied substitution of vegetables on my wife’s order but had no problem substituting the sides for a ladies seated at a table next to us. Short rib was great. Baby back ribs were a bit on the dry side and served with a very small cup of bbq sauce. Waited and waited for server for more bbq sauce but after 10 minutes gave up and just ate wait was delivered before the food got any colder. Would we come back? Maybe.
A garlic lovers dream. Everything we tried was delicious. Crab, short ribs, and garlic noodles. The garlic ice cream is a must. But don’t forget cash. The valet is cash only.
Food is always on point. The Stinking Rose has never let me down.
The portobello mushroom stake was great! So flavorful. Staff is supper friendly. Overall a delicious fun place to eat.
If you like garlic this is the place to go. Food is wonderful!
Got to the restaurant earlier than expected for our reservation. Thought we’d have to wait in the bar, but they were able to seat us right away. Cozy tent for two. Had the double mussels and crab which were excellent. Came out hot and stayed hot for a long time. Wait service was very attentive. Will be back with family who I think will also love this place.
A great place for a wonderful Mother's Day lunch! Our second year in a row - we are creating a new tradition! We came at noon on the Saturday before Mother's day. It opens at 11:30 am - perfect timing. Our family had a very enjoyable meal and the service was great! My mom was very pleased.
Between the atmosphere, the drinks, and the quality of food, this is a must-visit place. Definitely the go-to the next time my mom visits from the East Coast.
I LOVE IT PLEASE COME HERE ITS PRICY BUT HELLA WORTH IT
I didn’t think it was especially garlicky. If you’re ever in northern Idaho check out the White House grill in Post Falls. That place has garlic.
We were promptly seated and our server was there right away to answer our question and make suggestions. One of the best steaks I’ve had in a long time.
Always great food and wonderful service.. love the intimacy of this restaurant. We eat here when we see a show at the Saban.
