The staff extended themselves for a family birthday dinner.
Food is amazingly authentic. Room is loud.
We have enjoyed Gale's for years and will continue to do so. The service is always first class and friendly and I probably would come there just for the desert.
Food is great, but parking is a problem. Limited handicapped spots in the lot, street parking not conducive to wheelchairs.
My experience at Gale's was - in a word - LOUD!! And the kitchen staff only added to the cacophony by seeming to purposefully slam down plates and pots and pans to make as much noise as possible. The "open kitchen" is not such a good feature in this very small space with its wooden chairs and no carpeting. It was impossible to converse. Too bad because the service was impeccable - our waiter was attentive and patient. Kudos to him! I guess the food was ok, but I honestly can't remember - my ears are still ringing.
We will look forward to returning 👍
I usually love this place and consider it the go to place. I can rely on good service and delicious food.
Last time, I ordered like usual Arabiata, it was too garlicky and barely spiced. When restaurants are ‘generous’ with garlic that mean they are masking other tastes.
I will still go but I need to be very specific in my order.
Gale’s is a very good casual restaurant with an extensive Italian menu, excellent provisioning, and service to match. Down sides are tables that are very closely spaced, an an occasionally painful noise level, and hard “library” seating. It’s a favorite.
Delicious food and charming service to celebrate birthdays!
Excellent food and service! So happy we found this gem.
Overall nice & casual. Food was good.
Every time we visit Gale's, we are delighted on all fronts. The food is always very tasty and fresh. The wait staff is closely attentive without that annoying hovering. Just enough noise to make it fun, yet able to visit with guests. We'll be back many times! We highly recommend this choice.
Gale’s is truly a neighborhood gem! Service is always lovely and the food is great. We love to go there on Friday evenings. It’s a great way to start the weekend.
Burrata salad was topnotch. We love burrata, ever since being introduced to it in Siena, Italy.
This took us back to that trip.
My wife had the lamb chops -- a huge order, I think it was 5 chops. She enjoyed them a great deal.
I had the swordfish. We were told it was Pacific sword, but the texture and flavor so resembled the Atlantic sword that I grew up with and still adore, it was a knockout!
We had the coconut creme cake, my wife's fave, and I had the cheesecake (NY style). Perfect endings to memorable meals.
Highly recommend Gale's.
Great food, great service! Quick and delicious!!
Good food. Great service. Will definitely be returning to try other item on the menu.

We have been to Gale’s many many times. We visit SoCal family and travel hundreds of miles. We have lunch or dinner at Gale,s at least once per viisit the food, service, atmosphere and balue are always top notch. Highly recommended.
The servers and bussers were great
They have ample parking, friendly and efficient staff. The food is great and well made! I love their lasagna! Their salmon is perfectly made and so is their broshetta! The restaurants ambiance is also very nice and they are very family friendly and will always find ways to assist with food options. Especially for children. Wines are reasonably prices and corkage standard.
This was my first time here. I chose it because of all the great reviews I read. Excellent choice. The food was very good and flavorful. The waiter was very nice and attentive and even the two hostesses were really nice while I waited for my party to arrive. It was an all around great experience!
We were seated immediately, although in a corner table in the bar. The specials had two great fish dishes which were large portions and very tender. Service was attentive but not intrusive. All in all it was an enjoyable dinner.
We loved our meal. The bread was fantastic. Server recommended great wine. For our appetizer, we have the stuff zucchini flowers. Holy cow! It was amazing. My entree was the mushroom ravioli. It was delicious. My friend had the goat cheese pizza, and she loved it! I would highly recommend!
We had to wait for our table, but they informed us upfront that they were running a little late. It was a very busy Friday night. We grabbed drinks at the bar while we waited. The food was BEYOND delicious!!!
Sitting outside was a lot less noisy than sitting inside. Food was just average and so was the service.
This charming restaurant has delicious homemade pasta. My Mother and I enjoyed the Chicken & Artichoke Ravioli and a Caesar salad, followed by tasty cheesecake. Our waiter and the whole staff were friendly and attentive, as well as helpful. Ambience was cozy and very comfortable. I recommend this restaurant highly!
Great, as always. Everything is good there. Is that 50 characters?
The food is high quality and reasonably priced. All staff are professional and experienced.
I love the food and the staff at Gale’s. Their fish soup is so tasty. I was there on a Friday night and the noise level was too high for me. Aside from that it was a delicious meal.
Great fresh food
It was our first time at Gale's and we will definitely be returning. Our waiter was attentive and we very much enjoyed our dinner (lemon spaghetti with shrimp for me and a pasta bolognese for my husband). The dessert menu looked fabulous but we had an event to attend so did not have the time - next time for sure - the berry crumble, I believe.
Love the place and the people
We had reservations for 7:00. When we checked in we were told they were running a bit behind but should be no more than 15 minutes. That came and went. Checked in after 25 minutes and they said very soon clearing a table. After 45 minutes finally we were seated, no apology or acknowledgement from the hostess. Mentioned to the waitress when she asked how we were that we had been waiting way too long. She apologized and came back a few minutes later to offer a round of drinks and an appetizer on the house (which was a very undercooked artichoke). Took a long time for our entrees to come out but they were very good which somewhat eased the irritation.
Have recommended Gale's to many a friend and have yet to hear anything negative. The staff is friendly, patient and helpful, when asked for an opinion of meals. The food is consistently excellent and served in a timely manner. Love Gale's!!
Excellent food and service. We keep coming back and Gale's has never disappointed us.
Always enjoy Gale’s.
