Fabulous food and great service.
Great except loud helicopters overhead
The Caesars salad was very good. My portobello ravioli was excellent. The seafood soup however was only lukewarm.
The food is always outstanding here and the service is fantastic as well.
Dependably great food, service, ambiance and value. Plus, we appreciate how Gale is such a great supporter of our community.
We love Gale's. The food is always good. The service is spot on. Delicious Italian food!
Our waitress was attentive, as well as, informative on all dishes! I felt like she gave us an honest answer, but choosing the most expensive things on the menu! We celebrated my girlfriend’s birthday and had a great time!!! I would definitely go back!!!
Great service, great food, we were outside dining underneath the tent which was perfect for safety reasons. We got to try the coconut cake
Food was amazing.
Service was impeccable.
Our SERVER KELLY was incredible.
And the food servers were great.
This made for a great Saturday evening dinner
It was excellent.
Birthday- they brought a lovely piece of my husband’s favorite cake
Lunch on the outdoor patio. Food was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient.
Javier took good care of us for a birthday celebration.
Great food. Great sevice!!
The entree I had was good but on the cool side so the cheese was not entirely melted. Never happened before - new chef??
My friends and I love dining at Gale's and will certainly return!
Best Italian restaurant in Pasadena. Great menu and daily specials. I had the shoe Dr peach and it was marvellus!
Always great food and service! Love Gale's, it is one of our favorite places.
We were seated near the kitchen & the BANGING of pots & pans was way overboard loud!!! I’ve never experienced that before here or as anywhere else. Food & serive very nice as always!
Great food, great service. Only comment was when the fresh fish special (wild salmon) was presented no price was offered by the server. Shame on my friend for not inquiring, but one would assume it would be consistent with other entrees on the lunch menu in the mid to high $20 range for lunch. He was a surprised to see that his entree was $40 when the bill arrived. Lesson learned to ask in the future.
Excellent service and wonderful food!
We started with a drink at the bar while waiting for our reserved table, and then decided to stay seated there for dinner. Great mixed drinks for my friend and Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc for me. The Artichoke, beet/avocado salad, and a bowl of lobster bisque. All good, tho bisque was more tomatoey than lobster but still good on a cold night.
Very hospitable, people respectful of Covid protocols…proper distance from other patron seated at bar as well as waitstaff.
Good and service fabulous! Love Joshua!
I was expecting to eat dinner during lunch time since I was able to see the dinner menu on OpenTable. Plus when I got there, they gave me a dinner menu, but unfortunately it wasn't available. It took me 45 minutes to get there and was going to celebrate the holidays, so just eating lunch was really not worth it. I was about to give them a 3 star review, but their service was really good, so give them one extra star for the service. It's a good place to go to if you live local, but I would not specifically go there for this restaurant especially for lunch. Oh, their clam chowder was awesome !
We are celebrating being reunited with our sister and husband after 2 years and so excited to see the parade!
Always my favorite restaurant. Consistent, amazing food and service. So special!!!
My sister is visiting from out of town so we went there for lunch and it was fabulous in every way. Excellent food an excellent service. I left GAIL’s because it has consistently excellent food
As always the food and the service was great.
As always, delicious food.
Wait staff seemed rushed, even though it was Christmas Eve, it was between 4 and 6 pm. Our server however was very friendly and professional.
Took family from out of town and it was perfect! Great food and staff..
We had reservations and the restaurant wasn't nearly full but they put us in a back table by a door. People kept going out the door, so the cold air rushed in. We asked to be moved and walked to the front of the restaurant. There were several seats but the hostess just looked at us so finally I said we're going to sit here and she said okay. The appetizers were wonderful but they were delivered by a different waiter, he had a slight limp but wasn't awesome waiter - he appeared to be the only one actually engaging with the customers. We never saw our waiter again. Although we saw him leaning against the wall looking at his phone and chatting with another waiter, he never came back to our table. The main course was very disappointing the food was marginal. When we were done we sat for about 15 minutes until I finally flagged another waiter to get it to go box. Then we waited another 10 to 15 minutes and I finally flagged another waiter to get our bill. It's not like our waiter was busy he just seemed totally disinterested, just like the hostess. We won't be back!
This was our second time dining at Gales. The receptionist was friendly on the phone and at our arrival, the food was delicious but as with last time we felt rushed as we were trying to slowly enjoy the gigantic portions of food and the waiters kept trying to clear the table. They tried 4 times before we were ready to stop eating and drinking and then the pressure to leave was enormous as the place cleared out by 9.
That was really disappointing as we don't go out much and when we spend that much money we don't want to feel rushed. Sadly we will not be going back for a long time.
Food was good, the place was nice, perfect for a night out and have a quiet dinner. The server, Kelly, was exellent, very friendly and doing her job well.
Excellent food and service.
One of our favorite place to eat in Pasadena. Whether before Symphony or concert. Great food and super value. Thanks Gales.
As always Gale’s did not disappoint. The food and the service were excellent.
The food was delicious and the service was great. I believe the value for the meal was excellent. My only problem was the noise level.
Love gales for any occasion!!
I was surprised to see so many guests on a Thursday night. Gale's has been my go to restaurant when getting together with friends. Last night, I ordered the seafood linguine puttanesca which was surprisingly disappointing. The pasta was not al dente and not very flavorful. My friend ordered the ravioli and ate 2 of them because it was dry. The beet salad was the best. This was not the usual satisfaction after dining there.
Absolutely amazing place! Service and food are stellar!
The food is always outstanding, creative and beautifully prepared. And the wait staff has always been great. A specific kudo to Anthony last night. And I love the additional two white and two red "per glass" wine options.
