We have been there several times and I always enjoy it. The Chile Renellos is so yummy. And the service is always pleasant and attentive. We'll surely be back again and again.
The last time we went the poor waiter at the next table had a group of 6 middle-aged folks on some sort of singles meet-and-greet group. Most of the group was fine, but one gentleman was loud and obnoxious. The waiter handled it with grace. We were ready to tip the guy ourselves for having to put up with it.
Even with the rude gentleman at the next table (who yelled at us to see what we were eating before he ordered), it couldn't ruin our night.

After reading the outstanding reviews for this restaurant, my husband and I decided to try it out. What an utter disappointment. The food was tasteless. The steak wasn't at all seasoned; the veggies and potatoes were completely bland. The steak was cooked perfectly medium-rare as requested.
The service was awful. Our waiter never refilled our drinks once or even offered to bring another. He checked on our meal once in a "drive-by" manner. He was practically running past our table as he asked. We didn't see him again. We sat with our plates pushed away (as we were done with the lacklustre food) for over 15 minutes before he returned to clear them. Still no offer to replenish our drinks.
And the same time, the waiter at the next table was telling racist jokes because he had deemed his group to have a sense of humour. Funny or not, it was entirely inappropriate and unprofessional.
Never ever again will we spend a cent at the Garlic Rose.
