Expected much more from a well reviewed restaurant. Very dated, dirty and disappointing. Garlic chicken was dry as was the pasta. For my one night in LA it was a bust

We've eaten at the San Francisco Stinking Rose, but this was our first time dining at their Beverly Hills location. Overall, we were pretty satisfied with the exception of a few things. We had made reservations on Saturday night at 6 pm and there was a long line of people waiting to check in at the front counter. There were... More

If you insanely love love love garlic then you will fall in love with this amazing place. First off, the atmosphere is beautiful, it gave me that moulin rouge feel lol. Its super dark but the candles and dim lighting give that romantic, yet eerie feel lol. I don't know how romantic and eerie work together but this place did... More

This was our 4th visit and I must say, my most disappointed one! While we loved the ambiance, our dissatisfaction came from the food its self! We all had different meals, and for the most part there was something wrong with each of them! One of us had the halibut that he sent back because it was over cooked! An... More

A well recognized location on restaurant row that's great for couples as well as large parties. I'd recommend making reservations as it has been known to unexpectedly get very busy. There are tables as well as booths in the back. However, there is a more intimate lover's lane type area that is just secluded tables for two catering to couples.... More

I am not really sure what the big attraction is! I love garlic and I guess this is the attraction and hence the name. Menu is very average and nothing really special. Restaurant offers various dishes with garlic as the star of the dish in my opinion but it is not a place I would want to visit any time... More

A garlic lovers dream! I had this one on my list for our trip and we were not disappointed, you could smell the garlic walking up to the restaurant. The bread and garlic dip/spread/oil at the beginning are to die for, we ordered a second order of bread just to eat more of the garlic spread. Of course, after having... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighbourhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
