“I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful restaurant. There were fabulous gluten free options prepared with the best ingredients and served with style. Loved the chef’s choices sourced from local farms, the vegetables grown aquaponically just up the road and the truly creative use of herbs and spices. So much flavor combined with so much freshness! I will definitely make it a point to visit again when in the area. Well done Garlic Poet!!”
