My wife and I moved to Charlotte from New York City this June. We tried many nice restaurants during our years there, and Gallery is on par with the very best. The food was exquisite. We haven't had a better scallop. It was my first time trying elk and it was wonderful. One of our biggest surprises was the brussel sprouts. I've always enjoyed them and they're a nice side, but the first bite of these blew me away. The flavor was incredible. The service was some of the best we've ever had. Our waiter was knowledgeable, witty and very pleasant the entire meal. He is a true professional. It was our wedding anniversary and they also "made" us accept a dessert on the house. We somehow found room for it after a very filling meal... I highly recommend Gallery to anyone.

We were staying at the hotel and had a lovely dinner celebrating my Mom's birthday. Our waiter, Salvatore, was amazing! My sister was able to make a vegetarian meal from the side dishes, and they were every bit as delicious as the main courses. Very thoughtful attention to the side dishes.

You would think that since this was the typical hotel restaurant then the food and service would be good but not great.
Not true! The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. There were two young interns from the Philippines working as additional servers who stopped by often to make sure we were well taken care of. They were bright and friendly, and I never once saw them on their phones, which was so refreshing.

A lovely experience from start to finish. Hannah, our server, was so nice and helpful but never intrusive. The atmosphere is beautiful as you sit amongst artworks. We had the risotto which was creamy and flavorful. We also had the succotash made with butter beans-it tasted like the beans had been picked that afternoon they were so fresh. All of the presentations were unique. The raspberry dessert was sublime. A great experience all around.

Great meal, much more than you'd expect from a 'hotel restauran'. Service was attentive without being over bearing and everyone there was very gracious. Will definitely go back.

Our family of five adults had lunch at the Gallery Restaurant this past Saturday afternoon. It was a very nice dining experience. The service was excellent and the food was very good. Three of us had the crab cakes which were really very good considering we're from Maryland and have very high expectations when it comes to seafood. We'll be back again!

I love it-Fancy expensive place with affordable food-They split our burger for us and gave both of us a full side. You can go to the bar for a drink, or after we sat in a beautiful seating area with chairs and sofas looking over the golf course-Do NOT be intimidated-everyone can enjoy this place!

What a treat to visit The Gallery tonight...

Great Ballantyne Woodford Reserve special barreled bourbon - very good blend and quite a special treat while having cocktails.

Our meal for my wife’s birthday was very good and the service was excellent! The halibut entree and chicken were both very nicely prepared and the bourbon chocolate creme brûlée was the proverbial icing on the cake - extremely well prepared and presented.

You could not have asked for a better experience by the Gallery at Ballantyne Hotel - as a Marriott Titanium Elite member, I travel quite often all over the world and was very pleased with our experience tonight at The Gallery - Well done and I am looking forward to visiting again soon for my birthday!

Loved it so much! My fiance was 30 minutes late, but they were extremely patient and accommodating. I had a drink at the bar while I waited and the bartenders were friendly and knowledgeable. I mentioned to the hostess that we were recently engaged and had some questions about the hotel about using it as wedding venue, and she walked me around and let me peak into the areas that would be used for a wedding. She was extremely kind and I really appreciated her going the extra mile for me. Once we were sat, everything about our dinner was wonderful, from service to dinner. We were given a surprise free dessert to congratulate us on our engagement that was very generous and beautiful. The steak special was simple, but because the meat was so delicious that it didn't need fancy marinades or seasonings. Overall I see us revisiting the Gallery next time we want a nice meal and recommending to many others. A hidden gem.

This was our second time visiting the restaurant, the first time we visited we were so impressed with the food, the service, the overall restaurant. We then wanted to invite friends to join us for brunch, so we did. At this visit things were impressive just as they were the first visit, but the food was what I would consider below standards. the food was nothing like our first visit. My Gallery Omelet was cold and lacked flavor, and the potatoes that came with it were dry and had no flavor as well. One of our guests who ordered the Shrimp and Grits stated the food was bland as well.
Our first visit had us eager to return, our second visit has us questioning if we would return..
Sorry, I'm just being honest.

The food and service were excellent. I really wish they would work on getting their health score up, a 94 is concerning and makes me hesitant to return anytime soon.

The value was impressive. The Queens Feast was 4 courses of some of the best food I have ever experienced. It was my anniversary and at my request they had the table set up with a rose and personalized card. We will go back 100% if we are in the area again!

Everything about the place was amazing. Our server (bigger guy) was outstanding and really helped with reccomendations. We ate outside and the view was perfect over the golf course and there was a party going on below and we enjoyed the live music as well. 15/10 would definitely do again if I could afford it. Restaurant week gave me the opportunity to check out a resturant I would've never even thought about stepping into

Dinner took about 2.5 hours for three courses. Food and service, however, was top-notch fantastic. There was an event outside, so lots of loud live music every time the outer door was opened. Didn’t mesh with the intended atmosphere of the place. Nonetheless, we will definitely be back.

Always makes our favorite restaurant list in Charlotte metro. The food is a delicious twist of local Southern fare mixed with international delicacies. The chef is inspired frequently to incorporate the latest harvest mixup forming amazing culinary harvest surprises- I use the word surprises because each plate is presented as a gift to the diner. Sal is a waiter that brings skill and pride to position. He remembers diners and offers recommendations that always exceed the bar.

Came in for the Southern Benedict on their brunch menu. They have a new chef and instead of the traditional ham they used a beef short rib. It was fatty and not that good.
