Stayed at a hotel which offered a $20 gift card towards any Garces restaurant so we figured we'd give this one a try. I was very impressed. I ordered the Pan Roasted Scallops, which was recommended by the server and they were excellent. It was a small serving though so I was glad I got the salad. Server was attentive... More

I'm pretty picky when it comes to my French food as I was raised by a French mother. I can honestly say that Chef Garces has successfully put his own unique spin on some French classics. Our party sampled the charcuterie platter, which was excellent, except for maybe a slightly under-done duck liver pate that was nevertheless very tasty. Two... More

It is a large, inviting space. It was a bit loud but not too loud for a Saturday night. We had reservations which I would recommend. The food was amazing. I had the Beet salad which was yummy and the scallop entree. That was really delicious with risotto. The service was good. And the deserts were great. I would go... More

Great food with unusual combinations of flavors. We had four for dinner, and was thoroughly satisfied.

Came here for Sunday brunch and enjoyed the space. Lots of windows and nice light. Decent sized portions and reasonable prices. The wait was a little longer than we hoped from being seated until served but not too unreasonable. Good food. Would definitely return.

Garces Trading Co. is one of my friends and family's favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious, and their cocktails are excellent. I also love that you can sample a variety of oils and vinegars. We often leave with an extra treat!

First time at this restaurant and we will definitely come back. A bunch of high end olive oils and good bread to start. Charcuterie choices weren't huge but were very tasty. Had the wagyu beef, pappardelle with lamb ragu and the scallops as entrees - honestly hard to pick which was the best. Wine choices were decent by the glass... More

We booked a table for 6 at 5:30 in advance of an 8:00 show. We elected the Tasting Menu and were treated to a diverse 8 course meal, that was spaced masterfully over the next 2 hours. Starting with a cheese plate, we ventured to an Italian meat tasting, then a unique paring of meatballs - both vegetable and meat.... More

We are always in the mood to try something new and Garces did not let us down. A special new year dining experience. A 4 course meal with multiple items per course. It was something new and exciting. We left full, satisfied and ready to meet the New Year. a great time was had by all.

This is a very pretentious establishment. The food is extremely overpriced and the service quite inattentive. The food quality and selection is nothing special - steak, seafood, pasta. The food preparation and presentation misses the mark of trying to be a European bistro. Some of this may have been forgiven had it not been for the extremely poor service. The... More
