Stinking Rose (LA)

As all chowhounds know, garlic is also referred to as a "stinking rose" in tribute to its benefits. The Stinking Rose makes the most of its garlic connection. There is a sauteed mussel appetizer to die for and a 40 clove chicken dish that will protect you from vampires for at least 40 days. Service is good and prices are reasonable. Give it a try!
There is also a sister restuarant in San Francisco.
Gotta weigh in with the Hound majority on this one; the S.R.'s novelty is no longer much of a novelty (heck, this is LA; you can get dishes in Thai places a couple of miles from La Cienega served on whole plates of crispy fried garlic. Plus, you don't have to pay for La Cienega Row valet parking, or their rent...) Very few cooks in LA now garlic-shy.
Went there once with my family, didn't like one of the dishes we tried. I would definitely recommend... don't eat there!
This place is the Garlic Restaurant! We had the Bagna Calda and it was absolutely fabulous. We would definitely recommend this place to all of our friends.
yah i only ate their once but i'd go back. i've read so many negative reviews but the filet mignon, bagna calda, the fresh bread, and whatever that raw garlic concoction they have sitting at yur table are all great. i do hate valet, and yah, they mite be a tad overpriced, but i liked at least the dishes i tried

It doesn't much matter what you order because it will be totally overpowered by the garlic.
If you really like garlic though this would be the place to go.

does anybody know exactly what that raw garlic stuff is on the table? it looks like minced garlic with something green? anybody?
- nevermind - the recipe is on their website... its a garlic relish
At the stinking rose I had this lamb shank and it was totally over cooked. The place is ok, but not that great really.
