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.

This was our first visit to G&G, and it was a wonderful dinner. They have fine wine list. Our server, Pamela, was excellent. She was very helpful with the menu selections. Overall, the service was outstanding and the food cooked perfectly. We will definitely return.

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

The food was amazing! We also had a bottle of new Procecco they had just gotten in; we have the Ribeye for 2; some great appetizer. The dessert menu want not anything special but the entree, salads, and appetizers were just fantastic. I did not care for our server at all; additionally, I felt that service overall was quite poor. I would recommend this restaurant to others and would go back again myself.

Great restaurant. We sat outside so I can't say what the ambiance is like inside but the courtyard area was great. The servers were so polite and gave us time in between courses to talk. The food was amazing!

The server, whose name I forget, was one of the most knowledgeable that has ever worked with us. In Birmingham, that is really saying quite a lot. It is high praise and that is the spirit in which it is intended.

Very nice upscale place for brunch. Pricey, but that's what you'd expect. Quiet, nice atmosphere, attentive service. Fried oysters were wonderful. The food was overall excellent, but the five points special was really just a standard good breakfast (eggs, biscuit, strip of bacon) and not really special like you might expect from place like this. But really, very nice. Will go there again.

The food was fantastic, and the wine selection was extensive. I would recommend going a little earlier in the evening, it does not seem to be a late night place. The staff was attentive, but overly so as it was a later reservation and I believe they were winding down.

Unfortunately the service was slow...very slow. We had our appetizer before our first drink(beer) and dinner before the second drink. Food was great though.

Since it was a holiday (Father's day) they were very busy. But that being said, the food could have been better. The poached eggs were almost hard boiled and the salmon cake left a lot be desired. The drinks were excellent and those desserts -- YUMMY. When we were last there they had jazz but not this weekend. I would like to have seen more choices on the menu but the prices were reasonable and it is always a fun place to go.

Delicious fare, delightful cocktails, excellent wine, and superb service—all the makings for an idyllic date night. Loved the fried oysters, strawberry flatbread, heirloom tomato salad, and NY strip/spinach pasta special, but the short ribs and grits definitely stole the show!

I have been a regular customer at Galley and Garden. On Tuesday evening, I took an officer of our company from out-of-town there for dinner. Once our server took our order we had to wait an extraordinary amount of time for our wine to come. We waited and waited for our dinner to be served (table across from us came in after we did and was served), however still no dinner. I could see our waiter going in and out to the outside area waiting on a table, but never came to us. Finally, I asked the nice young man serving water about our dinner. Almost immediately another server brought our food to us and it was cold. I did not say anything while we were in the restaurant, but I will never go back again. It was embarrassing to bring an out-of-town guest out to dinner and receive such poor treatment. There are enough good restaurants in Birmingham that I will go elsewhere in the future.

Always a great place to take clients, and very happy that it is open on Monday nights! Friendly and knowledgeable service make this a wonderful location for client dinners. The food is always beyond excellent and the variety is vast. I have always had wonderful experiences at Galley and Garden and will continue to support this fine restaurant.
