Vanessa and Chris continue to provide superior food with excellent service. The paella was magnificent, the beef strips (often overdone elsewhere) were cooked perfectly. All in all a wonderful experience.

My favorite restaurant in Grosse Pointe. The food is outstanding and unique. I had been ordering take-out throughout the pandemic, and so thrilled the doors are open again after a remodel.

A cozy, intimate restaurant. The food was amazing. We were a party of 4, we had 2 appetizers, and 3 different meals, everything was prepared to perfection. The service was equally wonderful. Prices are moderate. I will definitely make a return visit. Finally, we had reservations and the restaurant call us to let us know they were running 15 minutes late, so we wouldn't need to wait.

The dining room was so tastefully and classy decorated for Christmas and the holidays. Having eaten there many times we decide to try something different for an appetizer and ordered mussels which were the largest mussels we’ve ever seen. Vanessa told us they’re from New Zealand and were absolutely delicious.
We completed our wonderful evening with coconut flan and cappuccino.

I moved from Grosse Pointe 3 years ago but came back to visit some friends. I think this is one of the unique and special treasures in the area. I was very pleased to be able to get a reservation. The food is spectacular. And she now has a liquor license which makes it all the more pleasant to have some wine with dinner. Highly recommend this place!

As always the food was delicious. We had one of the Arepa sandwiches and the Peruvian steak stir fry. So flavorful. Had not dined in for awhile - the new decor is handsome. Vanessa is always so friendly and professional.

Excellent Service, very patient, answered questions, eager to please. Unique menu, excellent food. Had a great time and would return. Very small venue so definitely make a reservation. The woman that waited on us, I believe was the owner was amazing and was obviously doing multiple jobs but you would never, ever know it. two thumbs up.

We ordered the plantain appetizer; the chicken bowl and the black bean bowl. Both meals were excellent. I’ve never had a bad meal at Garrido’s. The staff is friendly and the Chefs are amazingly talented and creative.

I can’t say enough good things. I normally don’t write reviews but we just enjoyed it so much. The food was so good! The plantain nachos were amazing and the staff is friendly and very helpful when asking questions about the menu and helping you pick out something you would like. We will definitely be back.

The white sangria was amazing, and wonderful refreshing flavors and delicious pieces of fruit. We also loved the plantain chips but they got soggy fast. Maybe a suggestion to have them separate from the beans, etc. The stroganoff was wonderful with a fair taste of mushroom. All the food would be highly rated, except I thought the paella wasn’t as authentic as it could have been. I could not taste any saffron and the rice didn’t hold up well.
Excellent service!

You are not going to find friendlier service in any restaurant on the planet. The food was also amazing. The red sangria was delicious. If you haven't been here, you need to. You have to have reservations and I heard them tell a walk in customer that they also had a very long take out line. I can see why. Their food is amazing. We had Paula's dream salad, we each had an arepa and shared the coconut flan. I can't rave enough about how delicious everything was.
