The all Garlic appetizer is divine, the garlicky Rabbit was amazing. And the garlic ice cream for dessert sealed it.

Rockin - if you love Garlic, go for it!

There are 2 kinds of people in this world: 1) People who LOVE garlic 2) Vampires As a happy member of the former group, I love The Stinking Rose. It's like all you can eat mussels - and garlic - and bread for $10 a head. Awesome. We always hit this place when we're in North Beach.

I love this restaurant. The 40 clove garlic chicken is among my favorites. The muscles are the best anywhere. I love the pictures on the walls. The bread is incredible. This isn't a cheap place, but its not a tourist trap. I'm a local and its among my favorite spots.

Garlic Paradise

We kicked off with cocktails to get us in a mood. Garlictini (vodka-martini) was strong, smooth and just perfect with a crunchy garlic-stuffed olive. My friend had a Vampire’s Bite – vodka, amaretto, midori and cranberry juice – definitely a winner for a girl “who likes it sweet”. I order steamed clams every time I see them on the menu and the ones at Stinking Rose are phenomenal. I was so crazy about the g... view more

The Ultimate Comfort Food

This place has the ultimate comfort food. My wife had the musses-shrimp-crab combo and I had the lamb shank, ample servings beautifully prepared and presented and loaded with garlic. We loved it. It was worth the wait to get in and the weight we have to work off.

Loved it!

I went here for a date. Very busy place so we made reservations. We had drinks at the bar beforehand (a bit spendy) but were seated at our table promptly in the Chianti room which had wonderful ambiance. Service was professional and efficient but not overly friendly. We had a great appetizer Garlic Balsamic Marinated Tomatoes-ate every bite. My entree of Gnocchetti in a Gorgonzola cream sauce was delicious to say t... view more

Dirty Utensils, Dirty Curtains

Usually I don't check utensils, but when I saw a speck of stuff on the knife, I wiped it off and got a black, yes black, streak on the napkin. The fork had the same black stuff. There was a hair on the water pitcher. The curtains, charming and romantic to some, were filthy. There was no light in the bathroom. The food was okay, but not worth the $18.95 for the 40 garlic chicken. I do NOT recommend this place. O... view more

The Garlic Was the Least Stinking Part

My friends and I had one of the worst dining experiences I have had in the City at The Stinking Rose. First we waited over an hour for a table. Due to some miscommunication between the hosts we were passed up several times for a table that would seat our party of 5. After telling the hostess we were not happy they evicted the party they had just seated and probably ruined their dining experience for the night as w... view more

Stinking may be just the right word....

My boyfriend and I are locals to the city. We love food and like to try out different restaurants in the area. We had a hankering for a really good bowl of spaghetti and ""The Sticking Rose"" caught our attention. The name itself sounded just interesting as well as the exterior deco. It felt really inviting. And the garlic with everything just sounded so yummy! We were greeted by the host and led to a small table by ... view more

Walked out after 5 minutes

Am not local and am in town or a few days. Was walking through the area which seems to have a good choice of restaurants, so I was hoping they would make an effort to be at least as good as each other. How wrong could I have been?\r \r From the outside it looks OK. There were 2 couples in there eating already, so it couldn't have been that bad, could it?\r \r I went in and was greeted OK, but she sat me at a t... view more
