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.

The service was great and the food was delicious. We had a later reservation so the restaurant was very quiet and enjoyable. Great for celebrating a special occasion.

We went there for our 3rd anniversary. The service and food were excellent! They even gave us a complimentary glass of champagne. We will definitely go again!

My husband and I have been going to Galley and Garden for several years now and have always enjoyed it. When I saw that the beet salad was available, I immediately ordered it. I was very disappointed when I saw basically a bunch of undressed lettuce with two beets. I asked the server what happened to my favorite salad, and he said that there's a new chef and a shortage of beets. Not a good response, and I hope that is the last time he says that to a customer. The rest of the food was okay, but not exceptional.

We were seated next to the bar on a Sunday for brunch. It was a little noisy. There was live music- a man playing guitar. It was okay but not necessary, in my opinion. There were 6 in our party. Three ordered the

It’s lovely and the service is fantastic, but the portions are so slight. We are average to small people and we all (4 people) left a $210 brunch hungry. That included an appetizer for the table and dessert for the table. Bothersome for sure!

Everything was impressive! The food, service, and atmosphere were perfect. The wine list was extensive and had a wide variety of excellent choices. This was my second visit, and both times exceeded my expectations.

Terrible service. 8:15 reservation, got seated immediately, didn’t get menu till 9pm. Server would come around every 30 minutes. Food was good but there are several other restaurants in town that are just as good if not better and much better service.

There was a party downstairs and two large groups upstairs so very noisy. Two of us ordered grouper which had to go back because fish was overly salty. Swapped fir the salmon which was excellent. Great waiter.

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.
