Crab
Restaurant
Garlic rules at this world famous North Beach restaurant where dining is an experience for all the senses. Charming private dining areas with unique decor: hanging Chianti bottles, glowing candles, cozy booths and chandeliers. Tureens and sizzling skillets of seafood tantalize and thrill...follow your nose to The Stinking Rose!

Located in North Beach, San Francisco's renowned Little Italy, the "original" Stinking Rose has become famous for celebrating the culinary euphoria of garlic and serving over 3,000 pounds of the pungent herb each month. Named after an historical term for "garlic", The Stinking Rose offers sumptuous, contemporary California-Italian cuisine prepared and adorned with garlic - and strives to accommodate every palate. There is hearty fare for the truly adventurous, mild for the novice, and sans garlic for those finding the herb's folklore and aroma more appealing than its taste.

Good golly! If you like garlic, or as Emeril says, "Gahlic", you'll love this place. Garlic is the main ingredient in most dishes. If it's not traditionally, they make it so. A generous amount of mints are served at the end of a meal. And oh, just a tip, the garlic in the jar on the table...that's raw, so don't dump spoonfulls on your food...that'd be silly.

The atmosphere is very homely and yet very cool italian. The smell of garlic is through out the whole place. Large groups, a liter of red wine, some crushed grilled garlic in olive oil with bread to dip.......and let the good times roll!!

If you like garlic...I do..then this is the place for a feast and a great experience. I love their motto..."We season our garlic with food!" The final treat is their garlic ice cream and it is heaven. Philip A. Felton

One of the best places to have lunch or dinner in San Francisco!  Food is excellent, as well as the attention.  Very good decoration, a must in SFO, don't miss it!
