It's ok. This place is OK. My meal was actually not bad... I LOVE garlic so I wanted to try this place. The bread they give you in the beginning was great. My pasta was pretty good - big pieces of garlic... but the apptetizer we had was just ok... the food my dad ordered was just ok... I would go there again for the pasta.
My husband and I found Garlic Jo's driving down PCH last year and since then, we've had this restaurant on our minds. We live in the Valley and like to take short road trips to get away. We ventured our way back to Garlic Jo's again and must say it was sooo worth it. I thought our last trip was so good but it was even better this time.
If you love garclic, you will love Garlic Jo's, don't care what anyone else says.
The food was excellent! Sangria was the best and the atmosphere was pleasent. The service was also great and we can't wait to go back.
if you love garlic (and who doesnt), you'll easily love garlic jo's.
to put it succinctly:
immediate seating, friendly staff, prompt service, very tasty food, will leave u wanting to come back.
I had a little bit of everyone's food: original garlic steak, mayo-shrimp pizza, albacore carpaccio,fettucine a la cardenale: loved all four.
to compare to The Stinking ROse like everyone else: Jo's has much more variety and livelier flavors, attentive service but entirely different atmosphere. Less kitschy, Garlic Jo's is more about the food and less about the atmosphere. Not to say the ambience is bad, there was a singer and band that were enjoyable while not overbearing. cant wait to return
GARLIC GARLIC GARLIC!. If you love garlic, or even like it... this place is a must. Albacore carpaccio is delicious. Garlic bread with loads of fresh garlic on it... Steaks and Chicken flavored with garlic chips... all delicious. Garlic fried rice is also very good. My gf's favorite. Live music is fantastic. Not sure if they have it every night though.
Garlic Goodness. Garlic! Need I say more? Yum! Always had great service whenever I've gone and the food is good too. Love the garlic bread, albacore carpaccio and the filet mignon smothered in garlic. Fridays are great with the Hawaiian/local style music from Island Breeze. Not sure why more folks don't go here. Like the fact that they're open late too, this is amazing for OC.
