Our waiter was amazing and took very good care of us.
Excellent good, responsive service, super convenience for pre concert dining.
Excellent food! Really enjoyed ourselves.
We usually make a stop at Gales whenever we are in South Pasadena visiting our son and Grandson. This place is always consistently good. This time I tried one of the specials and it was amazingly good! All around great food, the service is always top notch and attentive, and the drinks are very good. We always look forward to dining at Gales when we are in town. A favorite of our grandson too!!! Very kid friendly!!
As always it was great a took a first time diner and she loved the food!
May husband and I took my son and his wife for dinner. We had a great time and the food was good. Pasta dishes were better than the meat dishes but they were decent. The vegetables were overcooked but that was the only disappointment.
If you love good Italian food, you HAVE to go to Gale's. Make a reservation! They are very popular and you need the reservation. The regular menu and the specials are always delicious. I had the Ravioli de Mare with Vodka sauce, and it was just awesome. Make sure you leave room for dessert, because you'll want to have some, even if you have to share it.
Gale’s was excellent as always. Been there many times and it is always a delightful afternoon or evening. Feel like i’m In Italy.
We just keep coming back again and again to Gale's, even though its usually at least a 50-60 minute drive for us. The food is THAT good, THAT comforting and service is the best: attentive but unobtrusive. I couldn't recommend this neighborhood gem highly enough even though its not in my neighborhood. Well worth the drive.
The food was delicious and the service outstanding. We will be going back soo.
Caesar Salad to start and Portabello Lasagne for her and Grilled Flank Steak with garlic mashed potatoes for me. Excellent Service throughout. I let him know that we had tickets and to go ahead and fire the entrees a little early. They arrived just as we pushed the salad dishes away. Great timing, Thanks
.. We ended up with a few extra minutes to enjoy the last of our wine. Gales is always a class act. Tonight ws no exception.
I ordered steak which was around $36 and it was the very, very tough. I left most of it over as I got tired of chewing. Even trying to cut it was a chore
Our waiter was Raul. He patiently navigated us through the menus
After settling down with bread and wine, three ordered caesar salad and I had spinach salad. Both were good. Entrees were spinach lasagna, lasagna bolognese, seafood ravioli and oso buco. All were excellent. Raul found me a marrow spoon so I could I'mretrieve the marrow to put on
a slice of bread. We will return.
Always a good option for us, especially due to central location for all family members. Great, friendly service. Dependable, consistent and good food. Nice, casual, and energetic but not frenetic vibe which makes you feel part of the community.
We have been patrons for years and Gale's is our favorite restaurant!
Love the arugula , artichoke and asparagas chopped salad with salmon on too!!!
Excellent lunch location where you can conduct business in a relaxed atmosphere with great food and attentive service.
Good ambience, but tortellini was dryer than my humor. My girlfriend got the clams linguini and it got her sick. The clams smelled off. I wanted to like this place but didn’t. I guess maybe we just had a bad experience, but everyone else seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Always great food and lively environment if you don't need to have an intimate conversation. A Pasadena staple!
I have no problem with the food nor our waiter, but shortly after we were seated, 2 large parties were seated and the noise level was close to intolerable. We were going to request a change of table, but then the waiter came with our main course. I can’t really fault the restaurant for the noise level, but I will think twice before I choose Gale’s for a friends’ get -together.
We were seated right away, the service was very good & so was the food! :)
Nice staff, great place!
Love this restaurant and the great food. Always good and a terrific place for a pleasant dinner with friends
The food and ambiance was lovely as usual. However, the service was a bit slow. It appeared the restaurant was understaffed and we had to wait a considerable time for food and drinks.
We enjoyed a birthday lunch for a beautiful friend. Food and service was super!
Great food and excellent service! My favorite food is Grilled Branzino with Lemon, Olive oil and Garlic Sauce.
Never disappoints; special request was satisfied 100%.
My friends and I were visiting from out of town and were delighted with how wonderful this restaurant was. The service was terrific and the food was outstanding. I highly recommend it!
This was our anniversary and it was perfect. A local business with delicious food, great service and special attention to us!
We've been coming to Gale's for years. It's our favorite go-to for special nights. This time it was dinner before the play. You can't go wrong at Gale's.
The food was wonderful. Everyone at the table loved what they got. The service was spot on and the ambiance, although the restaurant could hold a lot of people, felt cozy and not too loud because of the way the rooms were broken up. A winner in every way. We'll be back.
I'm not quite sure why this place is so highly rated. Food was mediocre and service was slow. A lot of the dishes can be made at home.
Bad for dinner -food not good at dinner, nor is service, too noisy and too rustic BUT very good for lunch, fine service and fine food for lunch and not too noisy and rusticity okay for lunch. An excellent choice of salads for lunch.
Over priced comfort food. We went there couple years ago and liked the zucchini flower appetite. It tasted good, but the size seemed much smaller than we remembered. The Osso Bucco was tender but saltier to our taste. The chicken Milanese was just ok, a bit dry, compared with Norman Marcus version. Overall it is a comfortable restaurant but for the food served.... it will be a long while before we'd go back again!
The food at Gale's is delectable! The pizza, pastas, seafood and desserts are all fantastic! This is real, flavorful, full bodied cuisine. Everything at Gale's tastes like what you want food to taste like when you dine out. The most incredible, amazing coconut cake on the planet lives at Gale's and is a must try! Back room seating is much nicer than front room seating and it's very noisy. Service can be slow, but it's well worth the wait. Prices are steep but the food is that good! Get to Gale's! You won't be sorry!
Our Whole experience, at Gale’s Was fabulous.
About a month ago, while traveling in Pasadena we were looking for a place to eat and yelp had recommended Gale’s, At that time we were not able to get a reservation. However I had remembered the restaurant and wanted to take my boyfriend out for his birthday dinner. I’m so glad we did the food was absolutely wonderful I would highly recommend it to anyone
Gales is always a good experience. Josh (Manager) and Gabby (server) shined. The food is top quality as well, and the bus staff are very attentive to dishes and refilling bread and drinks.
Good food, friendly service, affordable and comfortable environment. What more can you ask for?
Everything was very good except it was so so hot in the corner where there were no overhead fans. I usually freeze in restaurants but this was really too hot to enjoy the great food.
We always enjoy Gail's. The staff is always extremely accommodating and the food is superb and reasonably priced. They also always have a "Specials" menu that accompanies the regular menu so there is always a wide variety of dishes to choose from.
