Description & Atmosphere
If you love garlic, you'll love The Stinking Rose. Their motto is "We Season Our Garlic With Food!" And that's exactly what they do! If you'd prefer no garlic, they offer selected Vampire meals, as well as vegetarian dishes.

Kick off your meal with the sensational Oven-Roasted Garlic appetizer served in an iron skillet — a perfect spread on their fresh house-backed focaccia bread. Enjoy delcious Cracked Crab, Shrimp and Mussels smothered in garlic — OMG! Pastas are remarkably good here. Ditto the Pizzas (on the small side). And the Forty Clove Garlic Chicken is a must for "chicken lovers" — roasted on the bone with Garlic Mashed Potatoes, it's an outstanding entrée. Garlic Roasted Prime Rib can also be ordered by the cut or slab. Save room for dessert — the Tiramisu is yummy!

Stinking Rose Bar
During peak times, the Stinking Rose Bar is fun, loud and great for people-watching.

Fun Dining Areas
In addition to two main dining areas (and full bar), there are several unique dining rooms — we like the Celestial Room (the most romantic) and the Chianti Room (named for the hundreds of Chianti bottles that line the ceiling).

Celestial Room
Dine in relative privacy in the romantic Celestial Room — perfect for intimate dining with someone special.

Chianti Room
Dine by candle-light in the cozy Chianti Room, surrounded by hundreds of pictures on the walls and Chianti Bottles overhead — it's a unique and fun setting.

Located in the heart of North Beach, The Stinking Rose is one of the most popular neighborhood restaurants. It's an ideal locale for enjoying lots of garlic-flavored food with family or friends — it's a fun place for business lunches or casual dinner meetings too!

Private Party Rooms
Banquet facilities at The Stinking Rose can accommodate 10-60 guests. During 11am-4:30 pm, the restaurant can accommodate 10-250 guests.

Garlic Gift Store
After dinner, on your way out, browse through the restaurant's Garlic Gift Store — it offers an extensive selection of FUN Gifts, T-shirts and food items. Treat your dog to a "Stinkers" Garlic Dog Biscotti… and don't forget the mints afterwards.
