Considered one of Midlands best, this restaurant let us down. Items were bland and over or under cooked. Service was wonderful and the management was attentive to our concerns. Definitely worth a try though.

Have dined at Garlic Press many times over the past 28 years. They also recently catered a daughter’s wedding reception brunch and we were exceedingly pleased. Cuisine and service are always fantastic! Special thanks to Gerenda!!

Great food, atmosphere and service. Try a steak with one of their special toppings. Some very nice salads, deserts and good wine list.

I'd heard nothing but good things about this place but had just never tried it out until a recent biz lunch. The good is scrumptious, service excellent, and dessert was the best part of the meal. I highly recommend!

Every time we have visited the dishes are outstanding. They serve bread with roasted garlic that is delicious.

Have been several times and never come away disappointed. The service is excellent and we enjoyed a setting conducive to fine dining and conversation.

Although they really did a good job many years ago when they first opened, they have really fallen. Fish smells fishy, pasta overcooked, recipes would be better if they sticked to classics rather than inventing things that just do not work. Sad, as we have...More
