Appetizers, pasta and meat from both land and sea, The Garden is a solid establishment in downtown St. Pete. Outdoor seating is great for the dinner crowd while indoor options are also available. Live music is a regular happening at The Garden, especially on the weekends.
For date night, I wanted to think of something different. We tried The Garden restaurant, mainly because the menu was appealing and outdoor seating was ideal because it was gorgeous outside.
I ordered the Fresh Mushroom Pasta and I knew immediately that it would be the best thing I ate, all week. For $13.50 the plate was a heaping pile of fresh penne pasta, topped with a porcini brandy cream sauce and sautéed onions.
The Garden proved to be efficient in both service and quality of food. I recommend it for a date night or an evening out with friends.
