    In a city eager to accommodate hoardes of tourists, yes, a restaurant has to be created to cater to those somehow. This is where Stinking Rose comes in. They have a great concept, kind of like Gilroy's Garlic World. Anything and everything garlic. That said, I do think some of their dishes are truly passable. I always order the pork chops when I'm there bringing out of town friends and we always have to end with their garlic ice cream. At the end of the night, your tastebuds are obliterated from everything garlic, and your friends will have a new story to bring home with them about this really funky garlic restaurant in San Francisco. It is a little pricey, but it does have its purposes.

    This is a well known Italian restaurant in San Francisco. It's worth a try, just to taste their food and enjoy the environment.

    If you are not a garlic fan, I would suggest you stay away because some people can easily be deterred by the smell of garlic.

    Out of all the restaurants down the street, this restaurant stood out. The atmosphere and ambiance was very elegant but the food fell short.

    Delicious food and great atmosphere. This place is well known in SF. The place gets packed and makes for a really fun environment. Can get a little noisy.

    This place has garlic in almost everything. Prices are not so bad. Hard to find parking, but there is a parking lot nearby.
