Everything about the restaurant was great except the food. There is so much I can say but would suggest changing to entire menu.

Unfortunately our food was mediocre. Our server did wear a mask but constantly touched it to pull it up over his nose. Without our consent, a 25% gratuity was added to our prix fixe bill which was already $95.00 per person. The salads were skimpy-maybe 2 bites total of lettuce. Our entrees were very disappointing. Dessert was good. We have eaten here in the past and the food was excellent. After our last meal here we will not return or recommend. Way overpriced for the meal we had.

Overal the food was good, we appreciated the extra pastries in the beginning. However, the chicken and waffles were a disappointment. I wish we were aware it was all dark meat because it almost didn’t look cooked so we didn’t eat much of it. The eggs Benedict were also a little undercooked for my liking.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. Food and service are always excellent. One nice feature is that water is brought as soon as you sit down. One thing that is a bit frustrating is that no one answers the phone. I called to say we were going to be late for our reservation and only got a recording. Otherwise all staff were friendly and accommadating.

Had a great brunch at Gallery. Was extremely pleased with the COVID precautions. Everyone was properly spaced out and all staff were very respectful. The pacing of the food was great. The server was attentive without being obtrusive. We started with the Late Harvest Chowder which was very good. My wife had the French Toast which she loved. The portion was huge!! I had the Crab Cake Benedict which was perfect. The fingerling potatoes served with it were also great. We were also served a complimentary pastry basket which was a big hit - especially the mini chocolate croissants.
Will definitely be back!

We totally enjoyed our lunch at The Gallery. The restaurant is very beautiful and so clean. The ambiance was lovely. We very much enjoyed the food though somewhat pricey it was delicious. Our server was exceptional as well as everyone else that works there.

Took a friend for birthday breakfast, and it was delightful. Food was delicious, service spot on and covid safety precautions were evident. I had french toast made with a orange cream cheese topped with cranberries. Thumbs up! My friend had vegetable breakfast hash and loved it! Look forward to return visit.

What an amazing experience! We dined at the Gallery at the end of our wedding day, and our server gave us the royal treatment. So kind, so friendly, so informative. And the food was divine! We way over-ordered because we didn't see that the steak came with potatoes and thought the side dishes would serve one person as opposed to four, so we ended up with some of the tastiest leftovers. Also worth noting that the bartender makes one of the best Manhattans we've ever had. We'll definitely be coming back!

My husband and I were looking for a place that paired excellent seasonal food with wine. I enjoyed the scallops and lentils but my favorite part of my meal was the creamy turnips which was paired with an excellent Chardonnay. My husband was pleased with his wine and the bison short ribs which had a fruity and rich flavor. Our desserts were equally pleasing as seasonal delights with apples and pumpkin.

I took Hubby to brunch here for his birthday. After 7 months of shorts and sweat pants, we wanted to dress up a little. I included that it was his bday on the reservation. From the time we arrived until we left the service was excellent and he was wished happy bday from each staff person that interacted with us. We ordered the flapjacks and daily french toast. They were both perfect. The spiced pears were baked into the thickest french toast I've ever eaten and topped with tasty granola. The chicken sausage was nicely seasoned and the cheese grits stole the show! They were the best grits I have ever eaten - full of butter and cheese. Larkrisha was our server and she took the absolute best care of us, gave us great insight on dishes, and was the perfect ray of sunshine to top off our experience. We finished the visit by taking beautiful pictures in front of the huge window and chandelier outside.

Food was phenomenal. The option for indoor versus outdoor dining needs to be removed from the reservations menu as we picked outdoor and then were told that there was no outdoor seating available due to it being first come first served tables. The situation was rectified though by moving us outside for our dessert when a table was available. Was extremely satisfied with the overall experience and the food is worth coming back for!

Phenomenal service and quality start to finish. The entire team at The Gallery Restaurant is clearly focused on the experience of their guests from the moment we arrived until we walked out of the door. I have been bringing customers here for years and now more than ever this Gallery team is a bright star in Charlottes culinary scene paying noticeable attention to safety, wellness and consistently delivering competent results.

Service by Merwyn was outstanding! He took the time to recognize our anniversary was the following week from my profile. I can’t remember anyone else ever doing that. He gave us a very nice dessert in honor of our anniversary. In addition to that, his attentiveness and service was fantastic. The cauliflower steak was very good, as was the red fish over spicy salad and risotto. Great restaurant

We had a reservation for 6pm. Were seated promptly when we arrived. Had enjoyed a cocktail in the bar. Drinks were expertly made.

Service in the restaurant was superb. Steaks were flavorful and cooked to perfection. Sides were excellent. We were given a very nice cheese cake for dessert for our anniversary.

Price was reasonable for the level of food and service.

Ambiance is good but would be fabulous if you sat by the windows or outside. When we go back I will be sure to request seating on the patio or by windows! The rest of the restaurant is nice, but nothing special. Staff was wonderful!! Food was good, nothing incredibly amazing but delivered for a great brunch experience with some creative, non traditional options. They seem to also use quality ingredients. Will definitely go back!
