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.
Fun atmosphere, short menu that was easy to navigate. Unique dishes and delicious food.
Every dish was fantastic - from appetizers to entrees to desserts! Would definitely return. Convenient parking, too. Service was great and attentive although one staff member would benefit from some training in being more personable. Noise level was higher than I'd prefer - difficult to have a conversation at the table. But the flavorful food made up for a lot of that!
This meal was incredible!!! Four of us shared several things- meatballs (incredible), ricotta - unreal, pizza- flavor unmatched!…and finished it off with an UNBELIEVABLE puff pastry dessert!! We were stuffed- but some of the very best Italian food we have ever had!
It’s a fun 80s vibe. The service was OK and the food was not bad.
There are lots of options in CHS I’m not sure it would be a top pick.
We had a fabulous dinner; we shared the meatballs as an appetizer and then shared a pizza. Great flavors, good presentation, nice wine list. It was our first time there and we will certainly go back.
Great service and good vibe! Impressive cocktail menu! Best butternut pasta ever. Pizza was wonderful too..we had the mushroom garlic with truffle.
Best pomodoro sauce I've had since my trip to Italy! Food, service, ambiance all excellent!
Food was great! It’s a casual restaurant, no need to get dressed up my husband and I were visiting from out of town and I wore a dress a heels and he wore slacks and button up and we were very overdressed. Food was great tho would recommend it as a good causal dining place!
Great meal and very knowledgeable waitress. A very good experience.
We booked a table for outside due to COVID risks. Unfortunately we did not know there are only 2 tables outside and they are on a very busy street. Felt like the table was in the middle of traffic. Was super noisy.
The Brussel Sprouts are a MUST. Perfectly cooked and the seasoning is spicy but great. I wish I had ordered two servings of the meatballs. They were so tender and pairs well with the Brussel sprouts.
Amazing dinner and service!!
While I thought the menu was slightly limited, the three things I ordered were all fantastic. Great vegetarian options. The service was a little slow but, that has become the norm at most restaurants these days. It was still as attentive and friendly as you could ever hope for with less than a full crew. Really enjoyed my cocktails. I will definitely be back.
Great pasta - loved the cacio de pepe. Amazing craft cocktails.
The food and drinks were phenomenal and unique. Also, they were fast and the customer service was amazing. I strongly recommend them!
We came here when visiting my daughter at C of C. Funky little spot. Small place but they were very busy by the time we left (we were early). It’s right by the expressway so if we had not been told about it most likely would not have seen. Small menu but everything looked good. We had the margarita pizza (had honey & chili oil on it), brussel sprouts & pasta. All a little different but excellent. They will accommodate where they can if a little too funky for you. I could have tried everything! Highly recommend.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The cocktails tasted great and were so vibrantly colored. My only complaint would have been that the door to Meeting Street was open so there was some traffic noise and a bug now and then. We will be back.
Food was delicious and the service was great!
honestly it was a perfect evening and every staff member that approached was amazing.
Ambiance….noisy if you elect outdoor dining.
