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

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.

Had a business dinner and nice accommodations. Service was very good, but the food was just OK. Had the flounder which was lightly fried, but did not have much flavor. Like the garlic press idea, but meal was just OK.

Calamari was cooked well, service was ok, scallops where still cold in the middle, prices on main dishes are pretty high, overall it was ok.

Unless you're looking for some good fried Texas cooking or a few decent burger and italian places there's really not a lot of 'fancy' restaurants to impress a date or expand your horizons. The atmosphere is great and has been a fine treat the few times I've been here. Not the type of meal I'd just go for on the... More

Garlic Press is my favorite restaurant. The menu has such a good selection, variety, so different from other restaurants. People are always nice and cordial and the prices are fair. It is always clean and it always feel welcoming.

Thank Martha W
