When eating a garlic-y meal, can there be too much garlic?

YES. I went to Vidalia once and told them a little garlic, but it wasn't chopped finely enough and there was WAY too much of it to the point where every now and then i'd just get a mouthful of garlic. i like garlic as much as the next person, but yuck.

According to Wikipedia, oh God yes. The internets don't lie.

Definitely, but depends if you are going out for the evening or not. If you are going straight home and no one is going to smell your stank-ass breath, then the sky's the limit (that is if you can stand yourself).

yes. moderation in all things.

It depends on the preparation. If the garlic isn't cooked well enough, yes. If we're talking delicious well-roasted garlic, I'm not sure if there is a limit.

One time I was eating pizza and doused it in garlic, mistakenly thinking it was parmesan. I am still disgusted by the taste of that awful slice. So yes, there can def be too much garlic.
