Gallerie Bar & Bistro Ratings and Reviews
A hidden gem, great food and service!! We had appetizers, salads, entrees, and deserts and they all were beautifully presented and tasted great. Our service was also excellent. We will definitely go back and will tell all of our friends and family about too.
The New Years prix fixed menu left a little to be desired. We were really looking forward to the opportunity to dine here but it was a let down and the dining experience did not reflect the cost of the meal. When scheduling the dinner, with the limited availability, I believed there would be a packed house but there was only a handful of other tables occupied. As we all know, nobody wants to work NYE and the service clearly reflected that. The dining room is clean and the art in the bar area was really cool but unfortunately that doesn't make up for the food.
This place is one of the best restaurants in Columbus. In my opinion, it is better than any of the numerous Cameron Mitchell restaurants in the area that are consistently full. We could always find a table here, because the restaurant is hidden inside the hotel and one has to go through the lobby and up the stairs to find it. If this restaurant would be street front or on the top floor with views, it would most likely be always crowded.
Service was good we were in a rush and they accommodated well. Bar was slow, hung up on the fact I ordered a featured drink, was told they were out of one key ingredient but could substitute, I agreed. Server then returned to say they were out of second ingredient so drink was not available. We ordered 2 versions of a Manhattan (perfect and inversion). We are Manhattan drinkers so know what Perfect should taste like. This version pretty much tasted and looked like a straight and heavy pour of bourbon.
We had a causal dinner among friends. The restaurant was fairly empty except for a large private party, so we had a little bit of slow service at the start because of them. Once we got over that hump we had good service, good food and recommendations from the servers, and a nice evening.
Note: Be sure to use valet, which the restaurant will validate, as they will NOT validate self-parking in the garage.
Ate here four times during the week of October 23rd (attending a conference in the hotel). The food was very good (can definitely recommend the cheese burger and the smoked turkey sandwich), but the service was outstanding each time! A special shout-out to Marshall, Joshua, Isaac and Ryan, who took care of us like old friends each time we visited. Would definitely recommend!
Making a long story short, four of us had reservations at another downtown restaurant, only to be told a wedding reception would be sharing our dining area. So at the last minute we decided to go somewhere else. Not much was available on the same evening -- a Friday -- but Gallerie had many open times. We were a little skeptical of a hotel restaurant but made the reservation. How glad we were! This is a beautiful, contemporary open space on the second floor of the Hilton in the Short North. The menu is imaginative to say the least, but with interesting and delicious entrees. It features apps, small plates and mains. Each of the mains comes with its own sides. The food is very well prepared, and our server Omar was delightful and efficient.
I read a review that mentioned how empty the place was. On this night it wasn't packed, but it was nicely busy. The one downside is the construction going on in this area that makes it hard to get to. You must approach it from the north.
This is a restaurant worth anyone's consideration. We all agreed we'd go again.
Don't let the fact that there are hotel rooms looking down upon the restaurant prevent you from enjoying this place - I was off put by that but very impressed by the food. I got the salmon and a rosé, and my partner got the lamb and a pinot noir. The deliberateness of the food was clear from the presentation to the flavor - there was certainly a unique style that went into crafting these dishes. My only other note is that the charcuterie platter, while delicious, was a little sparse for the price. A similar note can be made about the desserts. However, there is something to be said for quality over quantity.
The wait staff was half the fun. Very bright and friendly. The food was excellent. We had lamb, chicken, and fish. The person who had the fish declared it just about the best she had ever eaten.
The desserts are impressive and the bee hive in a jar was very inventive. The spicy ice cream was a nice spikey touch.
We always stop in when we are in Columbus. The food is outstanding. I had a strip steak and my wife had lamb chops. We selected a wine that was the last bottle. It turned out corked. Without hesitation the wine was replaced with a better wine at the same price. Our waiter was fantastic. She made the evening very enjoyable.
I am beyond irritated that I never received a confirmation or reminder of my reservation time and when I called the restaurant they told me I didn't have a reservation through opentable. Some how the ball was dropped and I didn't get to experience the crab broil on Monday
