It took 30 minutes to get our drinks, and then the waiter never came back. Another waiter brought our food much later, after we had finished our drinks and were wondering if they had completely forgotten about us. They forgot our appetizer, and offered nothing in it's place. We never got refills on our drinks (or even the offer of refills). We had to seek someone out for our check, and they were also rude. When we complained, we were laughed at and talked to in Spanish (I have no idea what they were saying, but it did not sound good!) I will never go back there, and I will tell everyone I know that they should not go either! I have gotten service that is 200 times better at fast food restaurants. From now on, I will get my Mexican food elsewhere.—FeIr

The atmosphere is very family friendly, and the waiters are very helpful if you have questions about the menu. And the food is unbelievable! Going there every week, we've had a chance to try almost everything on the menu, and everything we've had is delicious. I hope previous writers will give Garibaldi's another chance, it is soooo worth it! —Lotto

2008-02-26 13:09:00   We drove by Garibaldi's on Sunday and the building was gone! It's a shame really. I loved the food and the service! Does anybody know why the restaurant was demolished? —RickMerundy
