FRESH GARLIC is your FRIEND
I swear, add a little fresh smashed garlic to anything and it tastes better. Next to (sea) salt and (fresh ground) pepper, fresh garlic is a must add to everything.
Let's look at the perfect steak.
Add salt and pepper and it tastes good. Add salt and pepper and then mince up a couple cloves of fresh garlic then smash it with the side of a wide blade knive or spoon and then smear it on both sides and you've got WOW!!! Don't forget a little olive oil on both sides so it won't stick to the grill

I used to live next to this:
The Stinking Rose - A Garlic Restaurant Located in San Francisco & Beverly Hills
Haven't been there in years but just thinking about it is making my mouth water. Fair warning, however: garlic will be seeping out of your pores for days afterwards

Stinking Rose is a place everyone must visit once. I had some garlic infused smoke cheese and toast points one time that will forever be a sense memory of pure bliss.
Im in on the garlic bandwagon as well having used both the product FBJ posted but now just stick with the fresh stuff.
Here is a little secret I would have never known if not for having a japanese wife, they have these very small graters they use for Taro and Ginger. She uses it to do a couple of garlic cloves and it really brings out the flavor...I think it may be because the its such a fine grade that it keeps in a lot of the oil.....almost makes a paste.
Here is the closest pic I could find and while its not exactly like the one the wife has it gives you the idea.

I love garlic, put it in damn near everything in some way.
Stinking Rose is hands down my favorite restaurant. mmmm Sizzling shrimp skillet w/ garlic mashed potatoes & garlic ice cream.

I haven't been to the Stinking Rose, but I have been to Garlic Jo's in Newport. Their garlic bread is a few slices of baguette, basically with sauteed minced garlic poured over it. They serve steaks on these hot stone-plate-type things so you can cook the steak to whatever done-ness you like. They squeeze an entire head of oven roasted garlic into the mashed potatoes table-side and mush it all up to heavenly goodness.
My mouth is watering now.
