The food was tasty, but they need to have better service. It was quite a while till we were noticed. My biggest issue was the entertainment- although the music was good- it was way too loud. Don't go on Wednesday nights if you want to talk.
We walked in at 5:30 and saw the manager/owner holding a staff meeting at the bar. Someone came and seated us and left us there to go back to the bar. We picked up the wine menu and turned towards the bar so that they would see us but they ignored us. the couple we were waiting for came a few minutes later and walked them selves over to the table as the meeting was still going on at the bar. the manager saw us and ignored us. A staff meeting should’ve been moved directly to the open back room when customers are coming otherwise they should lock the door and not let people in. It was a bad unprofessional experience. We were hoping to sit at the bar for a few minutes before ordering dinner the four of us finally got up walked to the bar and they had to go find the bar chairs and move them over. Bad experience overall. Not sure if we will return.
the food was very fresh with plenty of choices. a very cozy and nice place. it was nicely decorated for the Halloween already. it was a very good choice for the family dinner.
Great food. Nice service.
We bought a groupon for galata and it was certainly worth it, the food was delicious. Mediterranean appetizers and a meat platter for the main and 4 glasses of wine for our party. Everything was well seasoned with sides and the service was very good as well. It is a pretty restaurant, so no complaints at all. If you like turkish or greek food, Galata is a great choice.
Party of 3 we had Chicken Sultan (loved) Lamb Donner: good but a bit small for the price and Seafood Guvec. Very enjoyable! Service was attentive. I would go back if I am back in the area.
Great food great service lovely little spot
Good flavorful food at reasonable prices
Galata is a great neighborhood place. Very quaint and quiet. Very authentic.
Always friendly staff who are accommodating and food is delicious!
Nice place, chill atmosphere, good food, great service. That about sums it up!
Food was very good and so was the service. Would definitely recommend.
Food was delicious, especially the red lentil soup and lamb shish. Very solid Turkish dishes. Only complaint is that the restaurant apparently told Open Table that we hadn't honored our reservation, even though we did (restaurant was not crowded). Had to waste time setting record straight with Open Table. Otherwise service was good.
Wonderful good, attentive service, beautiful decor, excellent value. Will be back
This was our third visit to Galata. Delicious food, consistent quality. Charming and welcoming staff.
Overall was a welcomed experience. I had 11 international teenagers and 5 chaperone adults. Food was a great experience and even the teenagers enjoyed.
The service was incredible. They were so accommodating for such a large group. The food was also amazing and there is a lot of variety. All 18 of us enjoyed it. Would recommend it highly
It was a Father’s Day family dinner. The food was exceptional. We will definitely return
Food is definitely has absolutely great flavor every time we go. The rice is the best part. Never had a bad dinner
Quiet, good service and tasty food. Lamb was moist and flavorful. Milk custard dessert was a bit gelatinous but baklava was sweet and nutty. Apple martini was big and yummy.
The food and service were good. I would only wish for more vegan options. I had mixed vegetables (potato, red pepper, green pepper, onion) that were stewed in a tomato-based sauce with rice on the side. Tasty but not exciting. The baklava and coffee were delicious. Drinks were good. We felt very comfortable sitting and getting caught up on that Tuesday afternoon that turned into evening...
The dishes were all excellent. The wait staff was very good, especially helpful in guiding my wine selection.
My only concern was the chilly temperature. I wish we had been seated in the back room but couldn’t have anticipated this when we sat down. My guests were ok.
It was a birthday celebration, and we really enjoyed ourselves. We’ll be back!
Nice food and service.
Food was okay but being seated across from the restroom was not cool
Secret find. Have eaten here several times. Friendly service. Never rushed. Delicious food. Very accommodating. Gold star!
Food and service were outstanding, great flavors and portions, highly recommended
A neighborhood gem. Great $17.95 3 course weekend lunch. Food is excellent and service staff is wonderful.
I used a groupon. Felt it was a RIP off. No bargain!
Have gone to Galata many times and have always been satisfied. The last time, although still good, the cubed lamb was overcooked and a bit dry, even tho I asked for medium. Service is always nice.
Pleasant restaurant. Very convenient to NYU Langone Hospital. Service was excellent and we enjoyed the food.
Our dinner was good but the restaurant marked us as a no-show even though we were on time for our reservation. Apparently other diners have had similar experiences with Open Table reservations with them.
Excellent. Will return in the future
Get together with family
Large portions, great quality, and great value.
It was average as far as Turkish fare goes. My chicken was a bit tough, but my granddaughter's Chicken Kabob was very good and not tough at all.
The service was excellent and the price is good, not overly expensive.
Wonderful place. The staff was attentive and friendly. Food was delicious! The mixed vegetarian appetizer platter was amazing. Overall great experience. Would definitely recommend!
Very good food. Service was good. Overall, a great place.
Very good food and service. Outstanding value.
We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and wine at Galata. We were nervous that the price of the Groupon would result in average or low-quality food and service; but this was not the case at all! We were warmly greeted and attentively waited on during our entire visit. The Turkish wine recommendation was excellent, and the wines by the glass that were part of the Groupon deal were delicious. The food selection offered with the Groupon was plentiful for our group of 4, and it was eclectic and mouth-wateringly good. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation, even without the Groupon deal. This is exactly how Groupons should be - create a positive experience for the customer, so that they want to return again and again...
