The fillet was small, which was fine but it had no flavor. The potatoes tasted like instant. The gravy tasted like from a mix. The rolls tasted no better than frozen yeast rolls. My drink was watered down and the ice tasted like from tap. The service was great and the ambiance was great.
Too loud. Seated in the bar area with bloody mixed martial arts on the television. We arrived 10-15 min early but they would not seat us. Had us go to the bar and wait only to be seated at a table that was open when we arrived.
Knowledgeable and friendly staff in a fun atmosphere with great food and wine
Galley and Garden never fails to impress. Great food, great service, outstanding wine list. Thanks Jesse for seating us in the front room!
Great venue, excellent food and beautiful restaurant!
Excellent as always! I have been dining here for several years and Galley and Garden never disappoints.
Consistently good service and food. Contributes to be favorite!
Anniversary. Food and service was excellent.
I would go back again tomorrow. Short rib never disappoints! Pamela was a great server and help to us! We will be back!
this was a new find for us. the food was excellent and the wait staff was very pleasant and professional.
Made reservations through Open Table for New Year’s Eve. Had no idea there was only a special set 4 course menu at $110.00 per person offered that evening. I would not have made reservations had I known. Food was good but not that good!!
Hopefully open table will be able to alert individuals in the future if restaurants are having “special menus “ .
As always a great experience and meal. It was a great way to celebrate the New Year. We are always made to feel welcome by Vitus and all the staff. They never disappoint
What for my wife’s birthday.
Lamb flatbread for a starter was amazing!! I had the roasted beet salad and my wife had the grilled wedge ceaser. Both were great but the ceaser had more flavor. I had the New York strip with lobster Mac and cheese and she had the short ribs. Both were great. Short ribs were super tender and flavorful. Steak was great and well cooked.
Only complaint was the rushed feeling we both got from the waiter. It wasn’t like he was trying to rush us, but he just talked very fast and didn’t let us finish our questions before piping in.
Very good service, excellent food, a real treat. We will be back.
Our service was terrible, took 30 min to get our first drink. The food was good, but by the time the food came we were so miserable we just wanted to leave and go to McDonalds!
Time for our beverages from the bar to get to our table was excessive.
Only one bartender.
Our server was excellent. The food was wonderful. We loved everything about our dinner experience.
Galley and Garden did not disappoint. We are new to Birmingham and wanted to treat my parents to a nice evening out. To say we were all satisfied is such an understatement. We left with happy bellies, recharged hearts, and got us in the Spirit of the season. Our waiter was impeccable and his patience was perfect for our party. The food was outstanding- we had the flatbreads for appetizers as well as the butternut squash soup and what a start! Main course consisted of scallops, salmon, and the vegan dish all were delicious. Dessert was the vanilla bean creme brûlée with coffee a perfect ending. Thank you Galley and Garden for treating us with such warm southern hospitality! We will be back!
My wife and I had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Galley & Garden, one of our favorites in Birmingham. As always, our server and hosts were attentive, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to see. It's a beautiful space at any season, but even nicer with the holiday touches.
After some bubbly to toast the evening, we started with the butternut squash salad and the Ahi tuna ceviche, both excellent. We both had an amazing Duroc pork chop, moist and perfectly cooked inside with a beautiful sear and glaze. This was served on a savory onion-based puree with red cabbage. It was one of the best pork chops we've had, anywhere. Dessert was a hazelnut and chocolate cake with a beautiful Rivesaltes dessert wine.
Really excellent experience and a great way to celebrate an anniversary together!
The staff was so kind and helpful from the moment of our arrival and parking the car to each and every one of the courses in our meal, the experience was delightful.
Wonderful holiday lunch. Great service and sat in the cozy bar area. Yummy food. Shrimp and grits were delicious.
‘Thick as thieves’ is an excellent drink. The main entree of duck was very good. We will definitely go back!
Amazing meal and great service!
Food was super... you prepare the best short ribs in town!
Staff was very welcoming and I really like the dining room area
Wonderful dinner out to celebrate our anniversary. Waitress was attentive, but respected our privacy. Food was excellent. Beef was tender and cooked just right. Scallops were great, and cooked well. Love the atmosphere of this place. Thanks
Our meal was delicious— the yeast rolls are the best ever, waiter brought a second basket— the service was beyond 5-star, as our waiter, Vivus, remembered us from one other time he served us a year ago! An extra treat was ambient music by well-known jazz singer/guitarist Marlowe Shepherd. From now on Galley and Garden will be our first choice for an evening out.
Lovely setting with outstanding service. It is nice to have fine dining lunch options.
Galley and Garden was great. Service was very good. We had a large group that was unwieldy at best. They did a good job to accommodate the group.
Food was very good
This was our first visit to G&G and it was terrific
The menu is varied and the chef is both innovative and capable, which produces some very sophisticated dishes. On our visit the grouper was superb, with a smoky sauce accompanying the classic pan seared treatment. The flatbread starter worked well with AL "BBQ" sauce. And the cornmeal crusted oysters were fabulous. Steak and another fish were also super as were the desserts we tried...the intense cherry topping on the cheesecake was quite tasty. Wines were interesting and reasonable..the restaurant is recognized by both Wine Spectator and Enthisiast. A great find!
As usual, great food and great service at a fantastic restaurant. Always look forward to dining here when we're in town.
Excellent Thanksgiving meal. Service, food, and ambience were just right on this special holiday.
We love Galley and Garden. Best overall restaurant in Birmingham. And we love Vitus and the entire wait staff
Our family was on vacation and did a little investigation on where to dine. We saw some great reviews and a few that were so-so, but upon looking at the wine menu online, we could tell that someone cares a lot. Additionally, the opportunity to dine in a renovated old house sounded fantastic
The food, wine, ambiance, and service were impeccable. Easily our favorite place in Alabama. Keep up the great work Jesse and crew!
Delicious food, gracious, attentive service, beautiful building.
Some of the best service I have had at a restaurant in a long time. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful with a gorgeous patio and fireplace. Everything we ate was delicious and beautifully presented.
On of our favorite places in Birmingham
Fantastic! A must-try.
Not as good as expected, service has room to improve
