Both the food and the service were outstanding! We dine there often and are always delighted!! The manager, Tim, is truly a great bloke, and our server, Miguel, was fabulous with a fun sense of humour..let’s just say that between the two of them, we had ian exceptional experience!

Service was exceptionally slow (over an hour for our food to arrive) and the staff wasn’t the least bit apologetic about the delay.

Majority of food had excellent taste but unfortunately was served cold. Took approximately one and one half hours to get the food from time we sat down. We had a reservation and restaurant was not busy at all, practically empty. Once food arrived I felt rushed to eat in order to attend event and we could not really enjoy our meal.

Food was not good, what I assume was the manager stopped by to ask how things were. I told him the salmon was not good, it was very fishy, he had no response - also nothing off the VERY expensive bill.
Of note, the chorizo-tofu soup was wonderful.

Every December, a group of us go out for a wonderful dinner before going to Joy for the big start to to our Christmas season. This year, after reading that the Gallerie Bistro was solid competition to the other amazing restaurant choices, we decided to go... reviews of the chef highlighted the amazing things he is doing with a "hotel" restaurant. I have never written a yelp review and our expectations were high...not unreasonable...and all of our meals were seriously less than average. 2 of us had the risotto...it had the consistency and color of a thick pea soup with little flavor. My husband had the salmon, it was done nicely but sat atop a mass of some thick, unidentifiable puree...it was like paste. My sister ordered the short ribs...be warned if you have a seafood allergy, your options are limited-which usually isn't a big deal because the food is good. The ribs were served cool and they were dry. The soup of the day was very good. The bistro salad had grains in it from not washing the greens. I hate that my first yelp review is so bad, but my husband and paid over $150 with a few drinks, and unfortunately, it was exactly what it is ...a hotel restaurant with unimpressive food. We had heard great things, and maybe it was a slow Saturday night and the kitchen didn't much care what went to the table, but with so many other options in the Short North...I would not recommend this. Sorry Chef Glover, I really was excited for your spin on hotel restaurants, but if this is what is being served every night, it wont compete with other places. If Saturday night diners are not given the opportunity to taste what you prepare other nights of the week, then that is truly disappointing.

I made reservations at Gallerie as it was close to a show we were going to see - and it was added Open Table points. The food was good, service very good and attentive, but my party didn't think much of it. They had typical dishes and said for a Hotel restaurant, they had had better elsewhere. I had the steak and although cooked to my preference (med rare), it was room temp - although still very tender and tasty. Based on my party's comments, I will probably not go back. Just not for us

We had been to this restaurant last year for dinner enjoyed it very much. The menu has changed, and the food is less inventive but all right. I ordered a cocktail and the stem of the glass was sticky. The cocktail itself was overly sweet and just adequate. Service was very slow and distracted. We were seated at the side gallery which was very dark. If you go, ask to sit in the main room. This restaurant is good for conversation.

We had a brunch reservation here and were at first annoyed by the $28 valet fee. So we found a space on the street several blocks away only to be later informed that they would have provided us with a voucher for the valet fee. But the Gallerie Bistro should advertise this fact up front. Of course people will drive away and look for on-street parking.

Brunch without toast? How odd! True there were bagels and small croissants and jam, but there was not a single piece of bread in the brunch buffet.

Do not order scrambled eggs or omelets; those eggs probably came pre-mixed in a container. You have to order poached or fried eggs to get real ones.

There were no towels or hand dryers in the women's rest room so I had to wipe my hands on a lot of toilet paper. Overall, I think this place is meant for a captive hotel audience and not for the Columbus citizen seeking to try a new brunch experience.

This was our first time at Gallerie and it was fabulous. Our server, Josh, was knowledgeable of the menu and drinks, and one of the food runners offered to bring us chips when we asked for a second serving of bresd, since they had ran out. I had the Ohio burger and fiance had the fried chicken sandwich. I loved my extra dirty martini with bleu cheese stuffed olives!

First off this website allows you to make reservations for brunch without the knowledge that the dining room closes at 12. Which was when we had our reservations for. and then the dining room was closed with a sign that says that you may have a seat in the bar, for food and beverage service. Why were we allowed to make these reservations for something wasn't even open?!

We indicated in the reservations that it was a Birthday and they made no mention of it during our dinner. The place wasn’t busy and yet the service was still somehow very slow. Drinks kept taking forever and bread and some of the meals were never delivered.

So... this was my second visit to Gallerie Bar & Bistro. After attending a graduation at the convention center, we walked across the street.

We requested server extraordinaire Baraccus, because he is amazing, knowledgeable and fun. Totally awesome dining experience! We tried a variety of different appetizers because we were starving after the long ceremony. Just enough to not ruin our appetite for dinner. Each course arrived promptly and we devoured the beautiful food accordingly! The drinks and desserts are creative indulgences too, so save room!

Went to Gallerie Bar & Bistro for Mother's Day Brunch - had a really good time. Plenty of food options, all well prepared. All the normal brunch standards (omelette station, carving station, basic foods) as well as other options. My daughter enjoyed crab legs, my picky son had more simple fare, and all of us enjoyed the excellent pastries. The service staff was really excellent, and delightful to talk to. Well priced for what we received. Saw some friends with very large groups (one who had a private room), and they also seemed pleased.

Food was well done. Service was friendly, helpful, accommodating. Ambiance was a little like being in the middle of a Holidome, without the chlorine smell and kids screaming. It is fine, but it lacked a little ambiance with all of the hotel rooms looking down on you. Maybe a Pergola type overhead might give it a little more sense of intimacy?

This was my first time here and was before a concert so it was probably busier than normal. However, the bar service was EXTREMELY slow - 25 mins to get a glass of wine. I understand being busy, but they should have staffed up for the occasion, not like it was a surprise. Also, ordered an appetizer that never showed up.

Our server was Barracus and he was amazzzing! Our group wished he could join us for dinner and drinks. He had great insight on every dish and his selections did not disappoint. My husband enjoyed the creative drinks, including one with absinthe. After watching "Girls Trip" we were intrigued.

Last , but not least, the food continued the restaurant gallerie theme. The presentation was spectacular. Almost too pretty to eat. Almost ; )

Would totally go again and soon. I hear the brunch is a hidden gem, we shall see!

Dinner prior to a concert. Restaurant was busy but waitress was maybe overwhelmed. She seemed to know the menu, took our drink orders then didn’t return for what seemed like twenty minutes. Another waitress came over and took our order then original waitress came back with drinks but then left again with our bottle of wine in hand. Never got our appetizer. It got to the point where it was funny. Had to ask for check twice before she finally left it. Probably not go back.

When we are in Columbus we always try to go to this restaurant. The Ohio chicken is outstanding. This time the wine list was not quite as extensive as in the past. The manager found us a great wine from an event they hosted. Good place to eat when you are in Columbus.
