The Gallery is a nice option to not have to leave the grounds. Definitely make reservations, gets crowded.. Enjoyed the pumpkin burrata salad and brussel sprout side-both good size for share. Yummy bread with a variety of butter spreads.. Halibut special was a little dry but tasty.

The service was spectacular! The food was delicious. We had the tomahawk, the salmon & the Caesar salad with salmon added. We had dinner twice (once was room service) and lunch once. We actually found the lunch menu more appealing! The best shrimp and grits EVER! Dinner is a tad overpriced. The dessert offerings weren’t that great for our taste. More variety would be nice. We will definitely be back in 4 months. We visit Charlotte 3 times a year.

I celebrated my wife’s birthday on yesterday along with our 4 kids and I must say it was beyond my expectations. It was literally perfect. I would add that it would’ve been nice to have a bit of Jazz music playing to give it that 5 star feel but nevertheless it was 5 out of 5. I recommend the Tomahawk Steak! 🔥 I will be back next time leaving the kids at home. Lol

What a great place to go for our anniversary. Our waiter was fantastic and so was the management and other staff. The chef cooked my filet a PERFECT medium rare. The house bourbon was a great addition to the food. If you are gluten free, the menu is very GF friendly and you have MANY options. We highly recommend The Gallery and will return.

We enjoyed our dinner here this evening . Our server was exceptional and attentive , allowing us to enjoy our meal and taking care of our needs. We enjoyed our starters ; a Caesar salad and roasted beets salad . Our entrees were equally delicious . My wild salmon was perfect , and my husbands filet was okay, a bit dry and overcooked . He still ate it and would order differently next time . Overall , a lovely evening out with outstanding customer service . Thank you .

Honestly it felt like bar food. I had expected a full on brunch and for me this came up short. Food was ok, not great, felt like an extension of the bar area. Staff was attentive, not worth the money as I expected a much better experience for my guests.

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry the offerings we had fallen short of what you were looking for. We have been working hard this month to bring new and exciting menus to the restaurant. The new brunch menu will be starting next week. We would love to have you try us again and see the new menu in person. This menu will have many more options and highlight a commitment to high quality and local ingredients. I hope to welcome you to the Gallery again. Charles Gardiner Executive Chef.

It is difficult to remember the extremes of joy and pleasure we consistently experience at The Gallery. In all our years in Charlotte restaurants, none match The Gallery. We enjoy long, slow, romantic nights talking and ordering thru the evening. We may start with a drink. Perhaps 30-45 minutes later we view a menu and select one appetizer. Few places are as accommodating. When unsure of wine by the glass, The Gallery offers a taste. Our favorite server never asks to take a complete order and never treats us as if we'd never dined out before. When we ask, he relates specials; not before. As we enjoy one another's company, The Gallery enjoys our company. We're valued guests whether we order two entress or share one; whether we spend lots or little; whether we drink or not. There is no finer atmosphere nor hospitality in Charlotte. Food matches atmosphere. Gallery stars begin where Michelin stars leave off. The menu is small but presents a puzzlement from which to choose. Sides are so good, we've ordered one as an appetizer. Whether it be fish, meat, or vegetarian, prep, presentation, texture, and pleasure delivered with each dish set a standard. When you order rare, it's rare. When you order medium well, it's medium well. On our last visit we declined dessert, but The Gallery sent us home with the world's most delicate and ethereal pignola cookies -- never suggesting we should have ordered dessert, coffee, or after dinner drink. If there was disapointment, no one showed it. It's not to say The Gallery doesn't struggle to train less experienced staff. This time, we first were seated amongst other tables near the noisy bar. We refused the table and everything was made right. When our server was out one evening, we endured a sales girl. It happens, but our money spent at The Gallery is a far better value than less spent elsewhere.
Oh, should you want our server, ask for the one to whom we refer in this review.
