Nice place with good food. They take reservations. Not a good place for children. Expensive. Good service.

Girls night out to celebrate a birthday. So relaxing....we were there longer than expected. Did not feel like we were an inconvenience for keeping our table so long. Definitely go again.

We drove 45 miles to celebrate a birthday at The Garlic Press because all of our dining experiences have been outstanding. We arrived at 7 p.m., we left at 10. We didn't order immediately because one of our party is a doctor who had a life to tend to, but we did order appetizers. We got an apology for the... More

We eat here all often and always enjoy it with the exception of our last visit. Our server was very slow and had a bit of an attitude. Took over 20 minutes for our wine and appetizers to arrive and over 45 minutes for our food. Food was good as always. After waiting an overly long time for our check... More

Was a surprise to find this place in Midland. The food quality, the service and the wine selection makes this place unique.

Very broad wine list, reasonably priced. Enjoyed my seafood. Fast and friendly service. Venue is worn, but that's irrelevant. Plenty of selections to eat and drink, executed very well. This puts Midland on our shortlist of stopping points driving cross country.

I'm pretty sure our waiter must have forgotten to turn in our dinner order because we got our wine and appetizers pretty quickly- but then it's took soooo long to even get a salad and mine was the wrong one it was not good by the way ... Even longer to get the main dishes. Our reservation was for 7... More

Midland location...Saturday night...7:00 p.m. asked for a glass of red wine, which tasted like grape juice. When asked for another the server said "sorry we are all out of wine"! Our table of 4 placed our order...2 of which ordered the "seafood platter". 1 platter was brought to our table and the other she said someone else got the order... More

I have been there two times. The first time the service and food were excellent the second time the service was a little iffy and the manager was indifferent. The food is wonderful and the wine selection is extraordinary. I will go back but I may request a different waitperson.
