Made reservations at Gale while visiting from out of state. We had no expectations but were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance and service. The staff was friendly and the food and drinks were tasty and aesthetic!
Ms. Gale was awesome…very nice, energetic, great personality…but that is where it ends unfortunately. Service was fair, ambiance was not terrible, they have a different vibe but something is off…maybe trying too hard to be something they’re not. Let’s talk food, it just wasn’t good. Honestly, I had a 400 dollar tab and the cake at the end of my meal was the best part of the meal…To be fair, I did not try their pizza…probably my mistake.
Great service. Fun atmosphere. Fantastic innovative cocktail list. Simple but flexible menu. Will definitely be back.
Had the pleasure of meeting Gale as well…while staff is top shelf! Have already told friends this is a “new”’place they need to add to list
Wonderful food + excellent service! It was our first time visiting and we loved it.
The food was very bland. Ordered the salami pizza. Hardly any cheese or sauce. Was really tasteless. Then ordered the butternut pasta. Same. Very bland flavor. The service was ok. The restaurant was very pretty.
Well managed restaurant with excellent service and great menu!
A Neighborhood Gem! This was our first time to GALE, but it won't be our last. From the corn curry to start, through the cacio e pepe and ricotta pasta for our mains, to the espresso martinis for dessert, every dish was better than the last. The service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing, and the setting was pleasant. Highly recommend!
Food was great- especially the meatballs.
So nice of them to bring out champagne for our anniversary!
Very cool atmosphere. The cocktails were delicious. We were really looking forward to the shareable plates and they all sounded amazing. We ended up getting the carrots and butter corn curry. We were a little disappointed with the carrots as they were sliced and mostly uncooked. Hoping it was a warm dish. The sauce was delicious though. The butter corn curry was very spicy, and I even have a pretty high spice tolerance. The flavor was amazing though and the bread was very good. We split the Cacio e Pepe for main and it was outstanding. Would go back just for that dish. Overall, a good experience, just underwhelmed by the shareable plates and they were pretty pricey for what you got.
All good. Just don't be in a hurry. It took 45 minutes to get our pasta and they weren't busy.
We loved the Gale! Pizza was fresh and delicious, we had the hot chicken. The drinks were also amazing and so well done and original. The drinks even had honey used in the recipes from her husbands bee hives!
We visited here from Tampa Fl and we will definitely be back!
Lovely place. The food was fantastic, the cocktails were delicious and the service was above par. Will most definitely be back!
Enjoyed the experience
Greeted and seated for 7:00 reservation on time. Friendly and efficient service. Food was very good with some interesting flavor combinations. Portions very shareable. Enjoyed everything about the dining experience. Highly recommend
Came with my family after my graduation ceremony and everything on the food menu was delicious! My craft cocktails were good too, just not my style. Will come back to try the rest of the menu.
The food is always delicious here. The FOH is genuine, but not cohesive when it comes to training. We mentioned twice that it was our anniversary, but it went completely unnoticed. We were hoping for another B&W film, but instead Die Hard was playing on the projection. The overall ambiance is confusing with different decor and movies every time. Overall, it is a great meal with hopeful, good intentioned service, but not stellar service.
Absolutely love the experience! We’ve been coming since they opened and they never disappoint. Between Jonathon and this magical drinks behind the bar and the epic dishes they are always slinging. Get your taste buds ready!
It was my husband’s birthday and the food was awesome. My only negative was the noise level. Everyone of the dishes what we ordered was 5 star and it was affordable for Charleston
Amazing fantastic fun experience and awesome food. So happy! Loved Star Trek elements. Wow
Gale is incredible. Everything we ate was absolutely delicious, hot and fresh, the cocktails were amazing and our server was so nice and fun and knowledgeable. Don’t sleep on this place!!
Fun vibe, fantastic food! Great service! The pasta is homemade and the meatballs were delicious!
The food and service were fantastic. A perfect dinner for our first night in Charleston.
AMAZING!! You must go here and support this great group and of people! We came here for our Anniversary. To start, They greeted us with champagne. The cocktail menu is absolutely amazing as the bar manager created these drinks and obviously knows what he’s doing! We tried about 5 different drinks based on his suggestions and they were all wonderful! You can’t go wrong! And to top everything off the food was beautiful - gebuibely some of the best food we’ve had in a long long time. The curry was out of this world. From the shareables to the entrees, this place was just INCREDIBLE.
Thank you for making our evening special!
Great dining experience! Service and food was excellent! Our large group was very comfortable and well tended to - we left with happy faces and bellies!
The whole experience was phenomenal...the food, the service, the atmosphere!
One of the best meals we’ve had in awhile! Split the margherita pizza and both had pasta dishes. Everything was incredible and the service was top notch.
Excellent good and service. Incredibly hospitable and welcoming
BEST Margarita Pizza I ever had! Server was excellent, So many "nice touches" throughout the restaurant, including the restrooms!
Delicious food but service slow. We waited a long time to order and our drinks didn't come until almost done with our entrees. But I would give them another try.
The ambiance was misunderstood. There was a mid-Century thriller movie playing on the wall, which was cool, but the music was nineties alternative and the menu Italian-casual. Just couldn’t make up its mind what it wanted to be. Food was delicious. Wine and mixed drinks were overpriced.
This Italian restaurant with a hip vibe offers a very satisfying and delicious menu of pasta, pizza, small plates, and cocktails. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. While the restaurant trends towards a younger crowd, this retired couple will definitely be going back.
Gale Restaurant was outstanding! Food was absolutely delicious, service was perfect, and has an amazing drink menu. Would highly recommend!
Honestly everything was a 10/10. Start with the meatballs & Brussels sprouts. You won’t be disappointed!
To say that we were disappointed would be an understatement after reading the reviews. We ordered drinks immediately after sitting down but they never came even after asking our server to check on them. After 20 minutes and watching the guy who must have been the bartender talking to someone at the bar we just canceled our drinks. Luckily we had our own bottle of wine ($25.00 corkage fee which is fine), but there is no way given the craft cocktails on the menu that he was regular bartender. The two pasta dishes were very good however the eggplant parm pizza was a hot mess. Maybe we caught them on a bad night but we will not take the risk to go back.
Drinks awesome, friendly service staff, mushroom pizza great, Brussels great!
Gale was an incredibly memorable meal. I grew up with a mother who prides herself on making tasty food, and therefore by default, I am a foodie. THIS PLACE WAS INSANELY GOOD. I will remember this meal for years to come. The flavors were complex, unique, and wildly delicious. We had the corn curry, cacio e pepe, and the Sambal Margherita pizza. There were "twists" on all of these dishes that just made them so darn wonderful! The restaurant is small, but the seating makes it feel as airy as possible and the pop punk soundtrack paired with the projection of an old classic film was unique but appreciated by me and my boyfriend. I will come here every time I visit Charleston, hands down.
Mushroom pizza is really excellent. Great range of cocktails and mocktails.
Amazing food, great vibes, wonderful and friendly staff!! Can’t wait to go back!
Fantastic vibe, great service and unique cocktails. Brussels were absolutely amazing, in fact everything was extremely good. To include better than sex chocolate cake. We also had very good service. Thank you for a great night.
The mixed green salad was delicious as was the shrimp pizza! I'm sure all of the dishes on the menu are good. Look forward to going back.
