- Anniversary Dinner!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/29/2014My husband and I dined at Gallerie to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary and it was beyond our expectations! Our server, Kwasi was so personable and had us laughing all night! He was knowledgeable on the menu and very tentative. Thom the manager selected a quiet table and dressed it with flowers and candles. Nice touch! And the FOOD! I ordered the Ohio Chicken and my husband ordered the Filet. One of the best meals we've ever had! So tender and flavorful! Kudos to the culiary team! Last, they surprised us with a beautiful dessert! So delicious! The ambiance here is beautiful especially at night. It's in a big, open atrium and everywhere you turn, there's cool art work to look at. Thanks to everyone for making our night so special!Special Features:
- DaveVIPDined on 8/5/2014This was a wonderful treat! It was our first time to eat at Gallerie Bar and Bistro and I can assure you that we will be back next time we are in Columbus. They have an outstanding wine list that covers a full range of tastes and prices. The food selections were interesting. Both of our meals were done to perfection and tasty.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful!OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/4/2014We have dined at the Gallerie Bistro a number of times. The food is always creative and delicious. I commend the chefs on their fine job! Service is impeccable, too. It is always a pleasure to dine there. Fortunately, we live close enough to visit often! Highly recommended!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent dinner! Food and serviceCookelehVIPDined on 8/1/2014We had a memorable evening here. Food was refectory prepared and beautifully presented. An innovative and thoughtful choice of goods. The service was courteous and thoughtful. The decor is simply elegant. The kind of place you want to return to.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Just OK this time.bunsDined on 7/25/2014We have dined here three times in the past and absolutely loved everything about the restaurant. This time i was not as pleased with the food. my filet was not well seasoned and tough. The pork belly and clam appetizer was a bit expensive for what it was and VERY little meat and not that crispy. I've had pork belly in the past and it was great. Everyone else loved their meals. I'm giving this an Outstanding rating because we have loved everything we ordered in the past.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Expect the unexpectedDevour50VIPDined on 7/16/2014Leave your preconceived notions of food at home. The Gallerie menu descriptions, while very accurate, are understatements of the unique presentations and twists of flavor you will enjoy. -Not just fish tacos but Sushi grade Ahi Tuna Tacos served up in a crispy tortilla topped with the Chef's super secret sauce. Go ahead and order either the fries or house made potato chips. Presented in a mini fry basket, you will think that each chip was made just for you.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very GoodDinerDined on 7/13/2014Very good food and good service. Thank you. The spring/summer menu is a nice change from the winter one, and I look forward to seeing what Gallerie foes for fall/winter this year.Special Features:
- Great food and service!McKMcKDined on 7/11/2014This was our first time at Gallerie, but it won't be our last! Our server Yana was fabulous! She should be teaching a course in how to be friendly, caring and professional, without being overly intrusive. The charcuterie was delicious. The mussels were divine. The peanut butter and chocolate dessert was so yummy. Great martinis. A very enjoyable experience. The only down side to Gallerie is the $15.00 valet fee. The going rate for the Short North is $6.00, so $15.00 was a bit of a shock! Next time we'll find a spot and walk!Special Features:
- Foodie11Dined on 7/5/2014Gallarie Bar and Bistro is in the Hilton hotel downtown (something we did not know going in). Not that it's location is off-putting, I just would have liked to have known ahead of time. The food was very good. We were being adventurous and ordered some off-the-wall appetizers so our flavor experience was surprising, but overall the quality was pretty good. The ambiance was so relaxing that we were ready to go to sleep after our meal. I love a relaxing environment when I dine, but it put a bit of a damper on my spirits for the rest of the night's planned activities. The chef brought us a complementary dessert pallet which was absolutely fantastic! It included chocolate & peanut butter mousse, raspberries, and brittle. Nice touch!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful Experience!2fordinnerVIPDined on 6/28/2014My husband & I were looking for somewhere different for an early dinner. We found Gallerie Bar & Bistro on Open Table & were so very happy we did - excellent service & we loved the view of High Street in the Short North. Our waitress & manager were so attentive & friendly, we will definately be back & will refer it to others!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- GallerieDinnerontheRivRDined on 6/17/2014My second visit to this restaurant. The food was great and the service was superb. I plan to return on my next visit to Columbus. Definitely want to have the veal Mac and cheese again!Special Features:

- Where was everyone?hungryVIPDined on 6/6/2014Dined here for lunch for first time. We were the only guests. I can say that the noise level was low and the service excellent (obviously). Very good food. Come on out Columbus for lunch! Valet parking was free at lunch too.Special Features:
- Mom's day a success!PeteDined on 5/11/2014Our brunch began with smiles and flowers for Mom. The food stations were arranged so that you saw the entire restaurant. Varied and delicious selection of food. Kudos to the wait staff. Everyone was cherry and helpful. Mom was happy so we all were happy. Thank you for a pleasant dining experience.Special Features:

- Quiet friendlyScoutDined on 5/2/2014We went with 2 other couples. Tha food and service were great. Service was amazing. The calm quiet was the reason for choosing Gallerie and it was perfect for talking to friends regardless of where you sat. My only complaint was terrible coffee however I asked for a new cup and they brought the Americana for me. Excellent. But they do need to improve the regular! Highly recommend this bistro.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food-poor serviceTarrymoreDined on 5/2/2014Online menu was not current. Options were limited. Waited too long for service & food. Waited to be seated while staff chatted and ignored us. Finally sat in bar and waited to be acnowledged there. Several Staff walked by before being given menus. Staff was cordial, but not that friendly. We both had the burger, which was awesome! As it should be for $12.50... Then waited again for the bill so we could get to our meeting on time. Bottom line: food was good, but expensive, and wait staff/service was lacking.Special Features:
- High levelJohnPCDined on 4/26/2014Gallerie, in the new downtown Hilton, Columbus, OH is a worthy destination restaurant and bar, even if you aren't staying in the hotel. It is attached to the Columbus Convention Center via a glass skybridge so you can avoid the weather and the traffic while enjoying a unique view. We were there on a quiet Saturday night - I imagine there are times when it is bustling, though. The decor and architecture is elegant, yet playful. Food and service were both very good. Valet parking is available for $6 - worth it, as parking in the immediate area is not easy.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Experience!DinerDined on 4/25/2014It was great! The food was excellent! The special that night, the Walleye, was an unusually fun treat. A pureed Ohio corn was beneath a tender filet of Walleye. The potatoes on the dish were cooked superbly. It was a fun find. Megan, our server, was terrific. She surprised us with a couple of 'chef's whims' from time to time throughout the meal and was superb throughout the experience. Friendly and efficient, Megan was all one would want in a server. We will be back at the Gallerie some time soon.Special Features:
- Upscale, but still a hotel.DallasVIPDined on 4/5/2014The food is great (I had an amazing Chilean Sea Bass with pea purée). It's very upscale food and I had a great bourbon drink with Woodford Reserve called the Ohio Apple. Pretty expensive for a hotel restaurant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 2 completely different experiencesginamnDined on 3/15/2014First time I went to G our server was highly skilled. Chef sent out complementary amuse-bouche. Everything was absolutely incredible. They even sent out 2 boards of desserts. It could not have been a more pleasant dining experience. Returned to G and was surprised by young server. She lacked polish, would enter into our conversations, and stayed at the table too long. She could not open a bottle of wine without destroying the cork. She could not comment on dishes other than not being able to afford one of them. One of our orders was put in wrong. She even told a story regarding waiting on a certain ethnic group. It was such a disappointment to our experience. However the food was absolutely excellent and I would highly recommend the chef!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Would give it another try...goodeaterDined on 3/5/2014The food was very good, but we were disappointed that the menu had been abbreviated to accommodate the previous week's Arnold Classic. Therefore, the filet I was so looking forward to was not on the menu. Our waiter recommended the chicken and it was good, but small. It came with a strong-flavored pheasant sliced sausage link. I think I was expecting chicken breast but it was a wing. Small portion for the price, I thought. We loved the St. Francis Cabernet!! As far as the food goes, It just seemed that we would have each ordered something different, and maybe been happier with our selections, had it not been a shortened menu.Special Features:
- UpsetFinbarDined on 2/15/2014The menu from a good chef Columbus knew from the restaurant Sage was disappointing. The Hilton chain seems to have emasculated his abilities to gain only uniform blandness. The appetizers appeared to be an exception, so I tried the bone marrow and my wife tried the pork belly. The pork belly was adequate, but not outstanding. the split bones with roasted marrow to spoon out gave me indigestion for two days. I took pepto bismol the same night, but my intestines kept complaining. Steer clear.Special Features:
- classy local farelennyDined on 2/15/2014enjoyed the atmosphere. the food was really good. would especially recommend the veal mac & cheese appetizer. looking forward to coming back and enjoying the bar before our next night out.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Notable hotel venuelorettaDined on 2/14/2014The restaurant was quiet and the staff friendly and accommodating. The food was better than most hotel fare, but the entrees seemed to be heavy on the sauces and reductions. I enjoy cleaner, fresher simple tastes, but that is a matter of preference. The spinach salad was very good and the presentation lovely. My husband ordered the Veal macaroni and cheese. That was the best dish of the evening. The steaks were tender, cooked to perfection, but the flavor of the meat was overpowered by the sauce. Presentation was very nice. We opted out of desert, but the selections looked divine. We would dine here again as it was convenient and we did not have to endure the traffic. Price was equivalent to most hotel venues.Special Features:
- Excellently romantic Valentine spotThisGuy85Dined on 2/14/2014Service was amazing, the food was fantastic, the chicken literally feel offstage bone and melted in your mouth! Delicious!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

The decor is modern and romantic.The service was great but I was disappointed with the add-on charges for the smallest things like lettuce. May go back for special occasions but not as a regular.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- PERFECT Experience!!WonderfullyImpressedDined on 12/31/2013Even Better than expected even after reading the reviews from others. I was excited about the Escargot and when the New Years holiday menu didn't have them ... the Chef still accommodated my craving. Thanks Chef!!! And they were AMAZINGLY GOOD!!! Steak was cooked PERFECTLY and practically melted in my mouth!! Lobster Bisque was awesome, and just loved the food!! Waiter was perfect with timing, never waited for any want at all! Accommodating us turning the table so we could sit together as we wanted and just made the time perfect for us!! Thanks so much!!! It was a wonderfully happy new years and the night started here!! I would do it all over again, but I would mandate to return to the Gallerie Bar & Bistro !!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good NYE ExperienceCSB14Dined on 12/31/2013I enjoyed this restaurant. Being a Columbus native, the Hilton and this restaurant are a welcome addition to the food scene. The ambience is nice, especially for young couples. I did comment during dinner that the first course/appetizer selection was a bit limited. It was overall a great place for dinner on the last day of the year. I would recommend it to family/friends.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointingDavidDined on 12/28/2013A beautiful room where I felt like I was really out of town (though I wasn't). But the food was disappointing. Had to send back the side dish, which was tepid. And the entree, duck, was only a bit warmer. The staff was very nice and accommodating, but that doesn't make up for poor work in the kitchen. Sorry, but that was my experience. Perhaps it was a fluke.
- Good food. Not an everyday meal.MartinDined on 12/26/2013Menu was French-American and upscale. Good place for special occassions. Bring your wallet.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Christmas at the GallerieCalamityAnnieDined on 12/25/2013We were ecstatic to find an upscale food allergen friendly restaurant open for Christmas. My mother passed this year and this being the first holiday without parents, even though I am 66, I was feeling pretty down so my daughter and her hubby decided to mix things up a bit and eat out. The ambiance was relaxing, the staff so very accommodating and the food was uniquely good! The chefs and wait staff are very versed in gluten allergies and told us exactly how the meal would be "tweaked" to be gluten free. It was so refreshing to find this out and to realize virtually every item on the menu could be tweaked and served GF. Our server was fun and engaging and we loved him, the food, the hostess, the menu - just everything!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We ate dinner here for ChristmasOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 12/24/2013We ate dinner here for Christmas Eve and thoroughly enjoyed it. We normally wouldn't bring kids here but they were accomodated well and really enjoyed the food -- even the fries and honey mustard sauce. The wait staff was great and I really enjoyed the chicken -- I don't normally get chicken out but this was highlighted and it was was some of the most tender and tasty chicken I've had. The chef has always been great as well, especially with the tableside dessert. We really enjoy dining at this restaurant and highly recommend it for a wonderful dinner.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great stop in ColumbusLarry20854VIPDined on 12/21/2013Were staying overnight at the Hilton and didn't want to wander. Boy, were we pleasantly surprised! Foie gras in Columbus? Who knew? Everything single dish that we had was first rate. And I mean first rate by our snooty East Coast standards.Special Features:
- DisappointingCalifWineOhDined on 12/21/2013Our experience at the Gallerie started out ok - wine was fine. Ordered the gruyere cheese balls as an app; very little cheese, aLot Of breading. The hubby ordered off of the Bistro's Bar menu; the Pork Belly slider. That turned out to be one big piece of Fat between 2 pieces of bread! Salads were good. Dinner for myself and a friend were the scallops which were quite good. My husband's 2nd glass of wine arrived after we were done eating. We ordered 2 coffees; they were delivered cold. We ordered the apple tart for dessert. It appeared to have been sitting around for awhile ... The apples were not cooked / hard. Major disappointment in the entire experience.
