My wife and I went to Garlic's for a pre-theatre dinner. Although I had not been here for several years due to a bad previous experience, she had and said it was worth me trying it again. I ordered the daily special, Ahi Tuna with Soba Noodles, etc. For $39 I expected more than six rather small pieces of tuna... More

If you are going to the theatre Garlics is a must try for dinner before or after. It is located right next door to The Grande Theatre. Great atmosphere, top notch wait staff and awesome food. If they know you are headed to the theatre they will make sure to keep you on time.

We were here visiting with friends. I had trout and my wife had the gnocchi and both were delicious. The atmosphere was cozy. We tried the garlic ice cream but was not a fan. We would go back.

Food in this area tends to be (to put it gently) under-seasoned. That's not a problem at Garlic's, where the namesake allium is amply represented. Not that garlic necessarily predominates -- there's good use of peppers, herbs and spices. Good selections of pastas and poultry. A reliable and enjoyable dining spot in downtown London.

We went to Garlics for a celebration. From the second we walked in the door it was a disaster. We did not have a reservation and were perfectly prepared to sit and eat at the bar. The waitress at the bar kept interrupting our conversation to add her two sense. I looked at my husband like what is going on?... More

It's been quite a while we visited Garlic's downtown. It's still a great choice especially if you're attending theatre afterwards. We were pleasantly surprised to see a 3-course prix fixe for $35. Even though we didn't choose from that menu they would have been a great bargain. Asking the kitchen to split our shared Caesar salad cost an extra $2.... More
