We arrived on Friday night at 7 to an almost empty restaurant, that should have been a warning sign. There were people at the bar and only one bartender who was overwhelmed. We ordered appetizers: calamari ( Overdone ) Ahi Tuna and the Cauliflower bites. We were a table of six, four of the meals came out first, the steak that was ordered medium rare and came medium well, the other meals were acceptable. After about another 8-10 minutes the other two meals came out and were served cold. Very odd, an extra long wait to be served cold meals. We mentioned our irritation to the waiter and manager and got 50% off the two meals with no explanation as to why they came out cold. We wont be back.
Relaxing lakeside dining; menu has improvements
Our party and every table around us had food delivered wrong multiple times! The singer was loud & shouldn’t be singing anywhere other than his personal shower. The ice cream was the only decent thing all evening and it took almost an hour to get! Never had such a bad experience! Complete disappointment.
Wonderful experience! Great staff and delicious food!
50th birthday dinner & we were very pleased with everything we had somewhere to be for another event & our waitress was very accommodating to getting our orders to us & out so we weren’t late to the next venue.
Father’s Day. The “stuffed” salmon was very small and there was no crab in it. All of the meals besides the burger was just too small. There wasn’t a good beer selection. Could stand to have some music playing. Ambiance was nice.
We went here for Fathers Day Brunch. Very quiet place, can't remember if there was music playing. All in all it just could have been better. So much potential!! I had the Cumin Tuna, it was appetizer portion and just not a good flavor. I ate it because I was hungry and I don't like to create issues especially on a holiday. The chicken & waffles that my son had were AMAZING. Best I have ever had, French toast my husband had was average and the chicken sandwich my other son had was average. Not sure if they have a combination ice cream shop in the dinning area but saw a big flag leaning on the wall? I would like to give it another shot. Beautiful location. Maybe try it not on a holiday?
Do not skip the ice cream! I’m
Beautiful scenery-inside or out. Chance might be the best waiter I've had in years. It was clear the food was quality, but we have high crabcake standards. The bottomless mimosas and bloody marys are a real treat. Very generous mimosa pours. The artwork is beautiful. All in all, delighted with our brunch here. Definitely will be back.
Great lunch and ambiance.Water view was wonderful.
Food was excellent and the presentation, awesome.
Definitely will come back for dinner.
“Found this restaurant “ by watching the TV show “Best of Central Florida”
The lakeside table was a great view. Food was quick and awesome. Our server was so kind! Will be back!
Joyful to sit outside enjoying the fresh breeze, the lake, and people-watching -- and the food and drink were special additions to the scene. Enjoyed the crab-stuffed salmon and the maple-smoked bourbon! Made to feel very welcome. In fact, went back with another friend the very next night!
We went to this restaurant a few months ago and it was outstanding! Unfortunately we did not have the same experience this time
Asked for medium and got an extremely well done cooked piece of meat. Also the cheesecake is definitely not worth ten dollars, in terms of size or even taste.
Thought this was a nice restaurant but looked like a sports bar inside. Food was ok and a bit overpriced. I wouldn’t recommend..
Lovely experience. We got there just in time to see the sunset by the lake and it was amazing. Our server helped us a lot with recommendations which were spot on.
Would definitely recommend.
We went there this past Saturday night and sat outside. There were 4 of us. 2 of us had the worst cosmos we have ever had and my dad had a whiskey and ginger that was so weak it looked like dirty water. The food was decent but nothing I would come back for. The view was beautiful but the slamming door next to us ruined our time. We asked that they just open it as it was a beautiful night. They told us they could not. We will not be back and we will tell others not to go.
Amazing outdoor table. The waiter was awesome. We had a great time.
Great food, beautiful lake front dining. Perfect !
This was my second time to the restaurant. I selected it to bring my friends who were visiting. The food was excellent, as I remembered. The service was great. It was just odd and unfortunate that when one of my friends asked for a ‘to go’ box for the balance of her meal she was told the restaurant was out of to go boxes! How can you open and not have to go boxes? Especially a higher end establishment such as this one!
The location itself is absolutely amazing, if anyone ever wants a place just to walk around Baldwin Park is absolutely beautiful. And the restaurant is in such a great location in it. The restaurant itself is unique in all the best ways, when you walk inside you kind of feel the inspiration for every type of restaurant you can imagine from artsy with its pieces displayed, to general fun dive bar closer to the bar itself with its stage and dart set up. And there are even a couple arcade games, No I haven’t played them myself so I’m not sure if they’re for guest use or just decoration. The food is top quality, and definitely worth the price as well as the drinks. Sat outside upon request to overlook the lake and it was magnificent, It was great to see the towns people enjoying themselves walking their dogs and just socializing. Nothing felt intrusive or overbearing, I was there on a date night in it felt as intimate and personal as you can get. Truly one of the top three best dining experiences I’ve ever had, and I’ll definitely be back.
Food was delicious. Very unique sauce with shrimp and design of original dishes.
Splurged and got the tomahawk steak! So tasty.
Birthday celebration. They don’t offer a dessert or anything. The food was WAY overpriced and mediocre at best. Very slow service too, I would go back.
We wanted to try a new place and found Galeria. Now as the staff explained the theme of the restaurant is local artist are hired to fill the walls with art and it changes every so often. The walls were bare. The restaurant looked like it was not even open on the inside or was about to close. So after he explained the theme that made sense. Now the food was just changed to their spring menu so am I am sure if they have not perfected the items or they just fell flat that visit.
All of the main dishes were under seasoned. The appetizers we had were good but that’s where it stopped.
Overall we will not return to this restaurant as it didn’t spark excitement as we had hoped for in a new adventure.
We enjoyed our dinner and really loved the outdoor seating. It was a beautiful night, a nice breeze, The food was good.
Another great brunch on beautiful Lake Baldwin. We sat outside and the tables were socially distanced for a comfortable dining experience. Jackie is amazing and the food is terrific.
Galería WAS one of my favorite places to eat brunch until they decided to change the menu. I was a fan of the chicken and waffles because the breast they used was so big and juicy so for no reason at all they changed the chicken to this flat frozen slab of chicken , yuck ! I had them bring me a burger and it was good but nothing special like the old chicken and waffles was. Another issue was that I wanted tots instead of the home fries and right in the menu it says in bold black letters that you can sub tots or fries for home fries or hash browns but my server told me that “it’s a set brunch menu so there are no substitutions” lol I had to complain in preset for the man share to make me the tots.
Here’s my big issue tho. They had a large group of families and decided to allow the kids (3-8) to have there own table. They put that table far out of view of the parents table which lead to kids being kids and it got loud and rambunctious . Kids running around playing tag and whatnot. It was wild. I expected the staff to bring it to the attention of the parents but they didn’t. We were not the only table that was annoyed lol. Probably last time we go there and that’s disappointing.
We ordered cheeseburger sliders and thankfully we cut them open because the hamburger was raw. Also, the steak had absolutely no flavor.
Enjoyed Happy Hour wines with good food and beautiful view of Lake Baldwin.
Amazing customer service experience starting from a friendly hostess to a spectacular waitress who made the dining experience more enjoyable being attentive and suggestions on specialties . Waitress recommended the pork chop which was cooked perfectly and paired well with garnishing. My boyfriend had the steak cooked exactly as he asked for and full of flavor . Highly recommend these dishes as well as the grilled shrimp and watermelon appetizer. We were lucky enough to try one of the new cocktails the chocolate old fashioned full, but if you like something with more body my boyfriend had the smoked old fashioned and full of great aroma ! Perfect date night area with quality food a great view and atmosphere
Brunch was amazing. $15 bottomless was a great bonus. Food prices were average. The view was amazing. Great view of the lake.
This place is in desparate need of a new manager to train the staff on how to do their jobs properly. Both in front of the house and back.
Rather disappointing. Loud music from the bar and loud drinkers detracted from the dining experience. If you don’t mind barroom dining then fine but if you are looking for an evening out- I’d go elsewhere. The seabass was excellent but the center cut steak was horrible. It was overcooked and resembled a much lower end steak. Had just as good or worse at a place like Denny’s. Service was fine but would Not recommend this restaurant and I’m pretty easy to please.
We left after 15 min, no waiter acknowledged, no water... nothing... they had plenty of open tables too. They were not staffed.
Nice spot on the lake which has outdoor seating, good food and drinks for a reasonable price.
We were told by an employee once we were sat that they were super backed up and would be at least 15 minutes before we saw a server. It took 3 hours to receive the food and that it was horrible. It was 4:00 in the afternoon. No excuses, it wasn’t crowded AT all.
They also didn’t give paper menus or QR codes. Just had large menus propped up all around the restaurant which caused strangers to come and stand extremely close to our table while they looked at it. Definitely not socially distanced
The waitress who waited on me was attentive, and ask me if there was anything special I needed.
Chance was a good host and the atmosphere was fun and it was great being outside for the sunset. Appetizers were very nice. My steak and potatoes were decent, nothing special. My wife's mahi mahi and rice was bland and seemed boiled and unfinished. We'd go back, maybe for lunch to try it again, but overall, $70 each for a Valentine's Day dinner was not the best value. We did end up sending the partial mahi mahi back though we received no feedback or offer to make it right from the chef. We appreciated the COVID precautions and felt very safe.
This restaurant is in a beautiful location on lake baldwin with lots of outdoor seating. However, the food was not good and the design and layout of the restaurant was bizarre and uninviting. We were there on Valentine's day weekend at 7:30 pm and the place was almost empty which tells you a lot
