My wife and I visited the Garlic Poet as a pre-Valentines day dinner date. From the website design and food selection, we were expecting something slightly up-scale. Upon arrival though, we may have been a touch over dressed in a dress shirt, slacks / a dress and heels. The restaurant is located inside the Clarion hotel and you walk directly... More

Having never been here before I was drawn on Facebook with mention of Lovefest two can dine for just $48 and wine bottles $10 off. Person seating us said all bottles are $10 off but found by asking waiter that specialty bottles were. Found out the food specials mentioned were not necessarily included in $48 price but rather up charges... More

My dinner was cold. Very small shrimp and cold. I would try it again but if I have a bad experience a second time, never again.

GP is a must to check out. The food is all local, fresh and AWESOME. 5 stars for sure. My wife and I LOVE to dine at the bar it puts us close to the wine and always great service. Only negative, please invest in some new bar stools, other than that, Garlic Poet get 5+ stars!

I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful restaurant. There were fabulous gluten free options prepared with the best ingredients and served with style. Loved the chef's choices sourced from local farms, the vegetables grown aquaponically just up the road and the truly creative use of herbs and spices. So much flavor combined with so much freshness! I will... More

What a surprise. A terrific restaurant in the guise of pub. Yes there is pub grub but the entrees are where it's at. Surprises at every turn. Wonderful use of spices and herbs wish I lived closer. I would be here 2x a week. This is a New York City restaurant that is just living here. Not a bad word... More

In town for just one night, I was pleased to find the Garlic Poet on TripAdvisor. Tucked in with an unimpressive-looking Clarion Hotel, I was glad I did. Temporarily daunted at the host offering to seat me at a high top right next to the door, he happily took my name and shortly seated me instead at a small booth.... More

Look at the menu - especially the sandwiches and entrees. You will experience flavors here that you will not experience anywhere else. I am amazed with how well they balance diverse ingredients to create delicious, unique dishes. We enjoyed the duck confit appetizer, the bone-in pork loin entrée, the beef-rib-and-cheese-curd fries, a flaky Haddock sandwich with a savory remoulade, and... More

We love The Garlic Poet. Their staff is always friendly and very helpful. I love that they incorporate local ingredients into their meals. Because I have dietary restrictions, I have to be careful where I eat. I can always depend on the chef here to serve me a delicious meal, catered to my needs. It is a bit on the... More
