service was excellent, extremely noisy, food: I ordered chicken and dumplings, as a southerner by birth, any resemblance to what I was expecting was coincidental. One of the other diners with me ordered the bouillabaisse, could only eat 2 shrimp. The third diner loved the beet salad

We've been here a number of times over the past few years, and this was the best the food has been in a long time. Dessert (a pear tart) was especially wonderful. Our server, Billy, was great.

Great Saturday brunch, very empty which was surprising. The burger with egg and bacon was excellent and complementary biscuit/ brioche/ banana bread appetizer with assorted jams & butter was my jam. Mango Jam plus brioche is a killer combo. Slight food coma before heading to the spa but will absolutely be back.

I was not pleased. The food wasn't amazing, but it wasn't my major issue, it was the service. Our server brought out drinks/took our order and we never saw her again. I requested the check twice, and she'd say OK, then start doing something else and forget. So finally I had to get a random server walking by to bring our check, then we had to wait another 5/10 minutes to get it ran by her even after my husband physically walked to her and handed her the folder with my card to run it. I was beyond dissatisfied. Sadly, I probably would've had a better experience at an IHOP. I may go back, but if I see her I will definitely request to sit in another section.

We were looking so forward to dining at The Gallery. Service was so slow; 20 minutes to get a drink, 40 minutes to get a piece of bread. Husband’s steak was SO tough. Not edible. Surely it wasn’t the cut of meat listed in the menu. Sat us facing the kitchen. Definitely not up to The Ballantyne standard. Won’t be going back.

Great dining experience! Ambiance, food, service, wine. The reason for the high noise level score was the large party in the adjacent private room (the door was open most of the time). Otherwise, wonderful.

We went during restaurant week and enjoyed the food. The selections were interesting and, more importantly, tasty. The wine menu is extensive and presented on a computer tablet. The deserts were works of art! It was not a quiet place, but the noise level did not interfere with our conversation. Darlene did a good job serving our table. We would go back.

Attended dinner for New Years Eve. A set price menu and limited choices (4 each) on appetizers, salads, entree's and desserts. Service subpar, slow. Food, particularly salads and some of the entrees very disappointing, particularly for the money being paid. Even desserts were only so so!! With a limited menu, would have thought choices would have been top of the line and detail to quality. Not the case in my opinion. First time at this restaurant and will give it one more chance, but first time was a big disappointment.

We are regulars at the Gallery and have never had a bad meal there until tonight. Tonight’s New Years Eve $105 prix fixe dinner was extremely disappointing. Four people in our party of six skipped the first course because the 4 selections were too esoteric - a tartare, a pate, raw oysters or duck confit.
The next course was salad. My watercress and beet salad literally tasted like dirt. The beets were flavorless and not sweet. I could not choke it down. It was awful.
The entree course was our best course - no fails there. Dessert was surprisingly disappointing. Meh. The white chocolate selection had no flavor at all - it just tasted sweet. The champagne nougat selection was too sweet and not flavorful or appealing at all. All six of us just picked at dessert.
The service at the Gallery is always outstanding but tonight it was slightly better than average. The water and bread service was great as always but our waiter was obviously over taxed. We were not even offered coffee with our dessert.
What should have been a festive and delicious New Years Eve dinner instead was a big disappointment.

We love our time at the Gallery. It is special to us. The food and the cocktails are wonderful. The entire staff is friendly and personable. I would like to bring to your attention an issue we have had twice lately. On those two occasions the food took way to long. Both times our server was Dexter, a sweet man. I don't know if he was the issue, or the kitchen. I certainly don't want to get anyone in trouble. Both times our Sunday Brunch food took over 1 1/2 hours to arrive after ordering. That is not the service we expect.

We had Christmas dinner here. It was very quiet, service was very attentive. The restaurant had a prix fixe menu, which we didn't realize until we arrived, choices were good, but the price was much too high for what we received. We would return and try the dinner menu.

I only checked seasonal because that is my only experience at The Gallery. I can assume it would be good other times, but I do not know for sure. It was a holiday buffet and the service was exceptional, especially for a buffet. We had a harpist playing Christmas music on our side and there was a strolling violinist on the other side. The food was delicious and fresh. My only complaint about the food was that the breakfast potatoes were cold. Everything else, including the friendliness of the staff, more than made up for that. It was very expensive, but very well appointed.
