Staff and service was excellent. Good selection of wines. We both had steaks (filet and strip) that were cooked as ordered. I didn’t try the filet, but 20% of the strip was not chewable. As the steak was 60, hard to perceive value. We had an amazing breakfast the following morning.

We were very well taken care of for our last minute visitors on Easter Sunday. Dinner was spectacular from the attentive and friendly service to the amazingly crafted cuisine. This will no longer be a special occasion only place for us! Yes, pricey but absolutely worth the $!

Food and ambiance was excellent!
But best of all was the waiter Salvatore! We enjoyed talking to him.
He was very gracious, kind, friendly. and accommodating. He is to be commended for doing an extraordinary job !

Food and service were great for the most part. Sweet potatoes were a bit meh. Decor is great, furnishings and art. Will be great once construction on Ballantyne is complete as that is damper on the view outdoors. Uptown pricing in the burbs.

We were pleasantly surprised by our dining experience. I’m always a bit hesitant to dine at a hotel restaurant but made the right decision. From the moment we stepped into Gallery, the service was impeccable, the food beautifully presented and delicious. Impressive wine list albeit wine mark up is higher than most restaurants. We will definitely return next time we are in the area.

Food was inconsistent. The steak was great but fish/risotto was dry and disappointing. Larry’s service was average. Coffee refill was cold and his knowledge of menu items was weak.

We dined at The Gallery twice during our stay at The Ballantyne Hotel. The first was in-room dining and the second was in the restaurant. Although we ordered the exact meal both days, it was infinitely better the first time via in-room dining! Our meal was hot and flavorful with fantastic service. In the restaurant, the meal was good but not a stand-out. Of mention were the crab cakes and crispy potatoes. The potatoes were especially good with the truff hot sauce. I was less than impressed with the restaurant’s mask mandate. I saw several guests walking around the restaurant to the restroom and bar without wearing a mask.

We went Gallery/Ballantyne Hotel for Valentines Day (weekend after). We started off with drinks in the Whiskey Bar and then moved to dining room when it was time for our reservation. We got pork chop and the red snapper and they were both excellent. We got the spicy mac and cheese and brussel sprouts. All delish. We ended up back at the whiskey bar for a night cap after dinner. We drank whiskey and some red cab (which the chilled for us for special request).

Our server was extremely nice. The table beside us that sat after us, got their food before we even got our starter. Then my main course was the incorrect dish. They were apologetic throughout the meal.

Food was good. Was a bit difficult getting seated as the hostess was fielding questions on a call and didn’t acknowledge us standing there for ~10 minutes nor politely ask the people on the phone to hold for a min. Finally someone else came by and sat us. Service otherwise was good. Food came out a bit too quickly though.
