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.

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.

Good service and very good soup and salad. The grilled shrimp is delicious added to any salad. And the cappuccino's were very good as well.

Garlic Press is our favorite restaurant in Midland. We enjoyed a delicious, leisurely dinner for my wife's birthday. We were greeted promptly and welcomed to our table without a wait. Service was prompt in delivering the warm crusty bread and taking drink orders. Our waiter was affable and attentive without being intrusive. Each of us ordered different items; all dishes... More
