Chef James Boyce and wife and partner, Suzan, invite you to Galley & Garden, Birmingham’s newest destination for American-French inspired cuisine. Located in what was once the historic Merritt House on Highland Avenue, Galley & Garden underwent renovations in the summer of 2014, enhancing the grandeur of the original home with modern touches. Today, both the cuisine and the atmosphere of Galley & Garden highlight the juxtaposition of traditional and modern Southern touches.

Food very good, service was excellent, but was seated next to the bar were everyone was walking around us and there were many tables and booths open that would of been much better seating being there was low volume of customers at that time when we were there on Saturday

Phenomenal experience. Sat outside so noise level was related to traffic nearby. Conrad was our server and could have sold us on any dish on the menu. His ability to articulate details about every dish was unparalleled. Stellar service and attention to both details and our needs. Food was delicious as well. Will go back!

We need to clone Vivus and hire the clones out to many dining establishments in Birmingham. Professional, attentive service can be hard to find in this town. Vivus delivers it with a smile.

All the staff at G&G are great, and I always enjoy my dining experiences here.

The food was great, service very attentive. Only drawback was valet as only 1 person and when multiple left at the same time, you were waiting a while to get your car but other than that, great place.

Service was attentive and professional. Atmosphere is formal but approachable. It feels like you are in for a special occasion. The food overall was good. I had a feta and watermelon salad on a bed of spinach (which was fresh and a great combination of sweet and tangy), shrimp and grits for an entree (well seasoned and a nice combination of flavors with addition of peppers and cheese but the shrimp were overdone and the grits clumpy), the dessert was a layered mousse which was creamy and tasty. The meal was not inexpensive but the food is good and the environment is southern classic. I am sure you will enjoy your meal.

Beautiful setting! Classic home with stylish updated decor. Food was excellent for all of us (with the exception of my husband's steak - "a little tough" he said. Service was impeccable (Trey). I would've given an overall 5 if not for the steak comment (hubby is rarely critical) and it seemed everyone had the "dropsies" that night. Two busboys dropped trays near kitchen and the bartender fell with a load of glasses. Very strange (and loud). We will definitely go back again. It is a little pricey but I feel it a safe bet for a memorable meal and night out.

This is my go-to restaurant for business lunches. The food and service are always top-notch. Some areas of the restaurant get noisy, so we request to sit in the bar area, where there are fewer tables.

In a field dominated by Mr. Stitt, it’s refreshing to see a restaurant excel in food quality. Start to finish was exceptional.
