We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Gallery on Friday, Dec 7, 2018. The food, drinks and service were all excellent. More than you would expect from a hotel restaurant. Pricey but worth it.

Have enjoyed the Gallery for many years and occasions. While still good, this night the service was slipping and food was also off. The ladies in our group hated the modern remodel from the southern classis it use to be. Hoping this place returns to what it was on all fronts.

Spent the weekend at The Ballantyne Hotel for my daughter’s birthday. We ate brunch twice and had dinner once at the Gallery Restaurant. The food was delicious all around, from the brunch chorizo skillet and crab cakes and açaí berry bowls to the dinner short ribs and mushroom risotto. Even better was the service. For such a nice restaurant, they really catered to our 2 year old and the 14 year old girls, and the adults of course, from bringing special treats to the specially made got chocolates. Thanks to Serhat (one of the managers) and all the staff. It’s not often that we rave about service over the food.

We were late on the Thanksgiving schedule. Staff seemed to be checking out early as I could not get a simple bowl for melted butter for 10 minutes. We also felt very rushed again related to being on the later schedule for the event. Pricing also silly overpriced for what we got during our rushed, short stay. Better place for a sit-down, off the menu dinner.

Had a 4:00 reservation for thanksgiving dinner. Seated in some brightly lit banquet room, and was informed it was a serve yourself buffet, half of which was breakfast food. For thanksgiving dinner. There was no mashed potatoes. No pumpkin pie. But plenty of breakfast. $500 for 5 people. Not worth it. Won’t return.

I ordered a salad and for $13.00 and there was barely any salad on the plate as the salad was just ok. Nothing special at all. My fiancé ordered cod which was the feature of the day and It tasted awful. Our server was outstanding. The bread was delicious and the art work in the restaurant is gorgeous. We used a gift card to celebrate our anniversary and we were really dissapointed with our meal. It was way too costly to leave feeling as though our meal wasn’t good.

We decided last minute to go here for breakfast (brunch since it was Saturday). There was a little bit of a wait to be greeted upon arrival as it was a very busy morning but nothing unbearable. I chose to have a mimosa despite the earlier hour and I was not disappointed. I selected the chorizo skillet and my husband had the chicken and waffles. They were both very good. We were both amazed at the flavor in the chicken. Past experiences have shown that when a "hotel restaurant" serves chicken, it has ZERO flavor. Doug was our server and he was very polite and responsive to my questions.

Sal was a fine server. The food was fine; not great. Our side was delayed so we were close to being done with our meal before it showed. The restaurant smelled like fish terribly, and then there was a terrible commotion from drunk patrons in the bar. The ambiance was more traditional, and conservative. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. I was on a first date so from that viewpoint, it was disappointing. I’m doubtful for a return engagement for this restaurant.

We had stayed at The Ballantyne and had brunch the morning of our check-out. The last time we had brunch at at The Gallery we were very disappointed, but we noticed this time they have really upped their game as far as service, wait time, and overall satisfaction. My husband and I were thrilled! We will absolutely do The Gallery for brunch again since we only live about 30 minutes away. Also, Lakreisha was amazing! So warm and welcoming! Highly recommend.

We had a birthday dinner for my mom and food was actually surprisingly bad specially chicken and dumplings and fresh catch. I had a scallops and scallops itself was good but not the salad that comes with it-didn’t even eat it. Sides were ok too mac in cheese was pretty meh. For the price range I was expecting more. Pastry and the service was on point. If you are looking for quite place to sit down and talk this would be a nice place for you. But if you are into food maybe not so much

Our server Hannah was amazing, and Serhat was beyond top of the top. We had a 10 month old out with us for a birthday dinner and they went above and beyond for us, for our child. We couldn't thank them enough and will definitely return. Please make sure they both get incredible recognition for the best service we've received, pre or pay child.

My husband and I enjoyed a very nice dinner. Greeted by friendly staff and offered great service during the entire meal. Our food was flavorful and cooked perfectly. It’s a bit pricey but we really enjoyed it. We walked around the hotel grounds after our meal and found some nice sitting areas overlooking the golf course. We’ll come back for sure.

My husband and I enjoyed our entrees and starters but the sides were hit and miss. Our server, Hannah, was very friendly and helpful. We had a little wait for our cocktails from the bar but the food came out quickly. We were also treated to a complimentary dessert in celebration of our anniversary. My only slightly negative critique is that this did not feel like a true “fine dining” experience to us. Service was nice but not spectacular.
