We were two people eating on a Sunday night. The place has a nice atmosphere and it was not packed, but there were several other tables. The food is fresh and made from scratch. Service was friendly and attentive. We shared a calamari and we had a chef's special burger and a regular burger. For each dish, we said "that... More

Stopped here en route home from Baltimore and cannot say enough good things. The food was amazing (try the salad with Gorgonzola dressing), really cool interior and the service was great. We had the most enthusiastic waiter who did a great job recommending food and was a pleasure to talk to. The cookie basket desert is adorable and more than... More

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!

Thank Angelo D
