There was a very nice selection of different brunch items and the food was tasty and prompt. The service was impeccable. Everyone was so nice from the hostess, our waitress even when they refilled our water glasses since my friend and I kept talking. They never made us feel rushed. I highly recommend the Gallery.

So difficult to be consistently excellent, but impossible for every visit to exceed the last, yet that is exactly what The Gallery does. Nothing anywhere any time equals or exceeds our experience at the Gallery. It' begins with the service. If you can get your hands on the right server, you will find yourself at Le Cirque, Per Se, Le Bec Fin, The French Laundry, or a classic romantic European restaurant. It is difficult to describe our experience if you've never experienced dining as this anywhere. We are soul mates. We arrive hand-in-hand and are seated in a far, quiet corner. Our server is pre-selected. We greet one another and feel the mutual warmth each has for the other. The list of wines by the glass has changed, so he brings us a taste of two with a description of what to expect. I taste and select. We order an appetizer or two to start. That's all. Perhaps 40-45 minutes later, after sitting with our wine, bread, appetizers, and one another, we are ready to see what's for dinner. The night of conversation, intimacy, fine food and wine lasts for hours. At meal's end, we may or may not choose a dessert. Regardless, we’ll never leave without at least a delectable homemade cookie or two, a smile and "Good night," from all. On this occasion, I've special ordered an entree for next time. The chef will email me when and if he gets it. Not every supper is a major dinner. The tavern menu also is available in the dining room. That's what's so nice about The Gallery. Your are the guest, and you are made to feel you are its most important guest. I don't spend the time or devote the words to any other restaurant in all my travels as I do The Gallery. Though I don't live here, The Gallery is my favorite spot, as it combines a wonderful menu with very fine dining, graciously warm service all of which create memories with each visit. I just can't say enough.

For the price, it was just okay, not great. Was meeting an old friend I had not seen in 25 years and had asked for a quiet table. I got the quiet table but, soon after a table of four was sat right beside us with the entire dining room wide open to seat them. I guess better to seat to serve the waiter than the guest. Completely destroyed our privacy, conversation and ambiance and can't understand what the point was in requesting a more private spot.

We ordered the tomahawk ribeye, duck breast, and short ribs. All of the dinners were very good except that the serving portion for the duck and short ribs were incredibly small. The duck breast portion was approximately 2-3 ounces.

Overall, it is extremely expensive for what you are receiving.

Pork dish was dry and vegetarian option was a slice of squash on a bed of mashed squash with sautéed kale….no flavor at all. Sticky toffee pudding was dry and didn’t have enough sauce. Will not be back for Christmas prefix menu.

Amazing atmosphere and food for a date! One must absolutely try the Old fashioned tequila cocktail! I would go again just only for the drink!
The soup at the beginning was the best soup I ever ate.
Shout out to our waiter Larry, who was the best!

We went for brunch. The OMELET was pungent. And we had to ask for a fresh brewed coffee, otherwise the coffee would be so horrible.

We normally dine at Gallery, but the brunch at December 24, 2021, was not a good one. It was really bad because of the egg omelet.

Service was slow. 30 minutes after seated to get food. Had to ask for bill. I expected more of a lunch menu instead of a brunch menu. I didn’t mind paying more than average but while everyone was friendly everything was slow and average.

The cobb salad was average at best: dry chicken and bad croutons. The onion soup was way too salty. No ambience. Not one Christmas decoration. We had to wait for a table even though the restaurant was half empty. They didn't have the wine we ordered and it took forever to get a substitute. We had to ask multiple times for a water refill.

I expected better. We eat out often and don't mind paying for better quality and service. The service was poor. It wasn't understaffed, just an inattentive waitress. As expected the food & drinks were expensive, had good flavor and quality. Very small portions which made my wife comment that she was still hungry after.

I enjoyed everything about the restaurant except the prices and portion. I feel the small bowl of salad I received for $25.00 was very inadequate. I had the harvest salad with shrimp, the salad and shrimp were very good but not worth $25.00. I would have like to have had a lot more greens in the bowl.
