Diner Reviews
  • "I attended a birthday dinner here. Excellent food and service as always."

  • "The food was fabulous - love the different sauces offered with the steaks!"

  • "We were guests of the hotel attatched to the restaurant and we were treated like kings. We each got a 3-course meal in addition to two smaller courses compliments of the chef; all of which were out of this world delicious. Unique food parings and a comfortable yet elegant atmosphere made this a night to remember. I recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area. The food is a little pricey, if you are staying in the Orchards hotel, I highly recommend the dining package you can add to your reservations- it was well worth the money and you can use it for any item(s) on the menu."

  • "Had an excellent dinning experience! Would love to come back again and try other dishes that sounded extremely unique. I loved how you could taste every ingredient and all complemented each other extremely well. Had an excellent waiter Sasha; big pat on the back to him, from bringing chocolate covered strawberries to our room to himself and another waiter taking time to find a sulfite free wine during dinner. The key thing is they looked happy to do it, which makes your dinning experience even better. We will definitely be back next year."

  • "Oversll it was not abad experience. Posting that the restaurants entrance is not on Adams drive would be helpful. The waitress seemed a bit judgemental for whatever reason and the steak did not taste like the ambiance or the bill of the establishment. My satisfaction was with the wine list and the setting of the restaurant. It was fun but romantic and beautiful. A better trained staff and better cuts of finer meats would improve this restaurant."

  • "Gala is the perfect combination of fun and fancy. We have dined here a number of times at different times of the year and have NEVER been disappointed with the service or the food. We are always made to feel like we are the most important guests they have ever served. We have met the Chef on a number of visits who will visit with you as if he has nothing else to do. Which judging by the food is not true. The plates look like pictures and the food is done exactly to your liking. We have tried everything on the menu and have found nothing lacking. So if you want to treat yourselves go to Gala you will not be disappointed!"

  • "I came in here on a ski strip with my family and I had an exceptional meal. The freshest ingredients, perfectly prepared. The service was phenomenal, the staff was so friendly to my kids and the atmosphere next to the fire was fabulous. We'll be back every time we're in the Berkshires. Worth every penny!"

  • "Had a delightful Christmas Eve dinner here. The food is outstanding, the staff very cheerful and accommodating, and the atmosphere very pleasant. Gala is on the top of our list for a great dining experience in Williamstown."

  • "Thanksgiving dinner--lovely, refined setting with enough space to allow nice conversation and privacy. Prix-fixe menu: first course--all boded well for lovely dinner. Move to entree: chose traditional Thanksgiving dinner "with all the fixings"--all parts of the entree were uniformly tasteless and salt did little to improve--all took home leftovers but had little interest in repeating experience. Next act: dessert--self-serve dessert table--unattractive and many appeared to be "Sysco creations"---individually cut servings on separate plates would've allowed patrons to escape awkwardness of cutting pieces of pie that fell apart while others were awaiting their turns. This could have been an experience that might have set a tradition."

  • "We ate here for Thanksgiving. The food overall was very good. I elected to go for the Berkshire pork chop, served with a maple-glazed Pork Belly in a corn chowder. All were quite well prepared, although the pork chop was a tad overcooked, but nothing serious. However, the pork belly and the corn chowder were sublime. My partner had a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner with all the trimmings; I sampled it and it was quite good as well. And the service was exceptional."

  • "We were visiting my daughter at college. We had a very tight schedule prior to a show. We were greeted warmly and told not to worry. All our dishes came out in a timely manner and we never felt rushed. Our waiter so friendly and accommodating. The food was outstanding. We started with a cheese platter that came with a true assortment of 8 cheeses. We enjoyed the braised ribs with Bourbon dip. The ocean bass was so tasty, tender and flakey. A wonderful family gathering."

  • "If you go, save money and eat at the pub. Stick to the more simple foods, like a burger, and you will be pleased!"

  • "The appetizers were great but entrees were an issue -- the scallops were burned and the steak so too charred. Thought they do care about food and might have been having an uneven night."
