My husband and I were looking for a place that paired excellent seasonal food with wine. I enjoyed the scallops and lentils but my favorite part of my meal was the creamy turnips which was paired with an excellent Chardonnay. My husband was pleased with his wine and the bison short ribs which had a fruity and rich flavor. Our desserts were equally pleasing as seasonal delights with apples and pumpkin.

I took Hubby to brunch here for his birthday. After 7 months of shorts and sweat pants, we wanted to dress up a little. I included that it was his bday on the reservation. From the time we arrived until we left the service was excellent and he was wished happy bday from each staff person that interacted with us. We ordered the flapjacks and daily french toast. They were both perfect. The spiced pears were baked into the thickest french toast I've ever eaten and topped with tasty granola. The chicken sausage was nicely seasoned and the cheese grits stole the show! They were the best grits I have ever eaten - full of butter and cheese. Larkrisha was our server and she took the absolute best care of us, gave us great insight on dishes, and was the perfect ray of sunshine to top off our experience. We finished the visit by taking beautiful pictures in front of the huge window and chandelier outside.

Food was phenomenal. The option for indoor versus outdoor dining needs to be removed from the reservations menu as we picked outdoor and then were told that there was no outdoor seating available due to it being first come first served tables. The situation was rectified though by moving us outside for our dessert when a table was available. Was extremely satisfied with the overall experience and the food is worth coming back for!

Phenomenal service and quality start to finish. The entire team at The Gallery Restaurant is clearly focused on the experience of their guests from the moment we arrived until we walked out of the door. I have been bringing customers here for years and now more than ever this Gallery team is a bright star in Charlottes culinary scene paying noticeable attention to safety, wellness and consistently delivering competent results.

Service by Merwyn was outstanding! He took the time to recognize our anniversary was the following week from my profile. I can’t remember anyone else ever doing that. He gave us a very nice dessert in honor of our anniversary. In addition to that, his attentiveness and service was fantastic. The cauliflower steak was very good, as was the red fish over spicy salad and risotto. Great restaurant

I love the resort but the quality of the experience has gone down significantly in the past 20 years. The restaurant is run down, prices are expensive & not much value for the price. I won't go back.

We had a reservation for 6pm. Were seated promptly when we arrived. Had enjoyed a cocktail in the bar. Drinks were expertly made.

Service in the restaurant was superb. Steaks were flavorful and cooked to perfection. Sides were excellent. We were given a very nice cheese cake for dessert for our anniversary.

Price was reasonable for the level of food and service.

Ambiance is good but would be fabulous if you sat by the windows or outside. When we go back I will be sure to request seating on the patio or by windows! The rest of the restaurant is nice, but nothing special. Staff was wonderful!! Food was good, nothing incredibly amazing but delivered for a great brunch experience with some creative, non traditional options. They seem to also use quality ingredients. Will definitely go back!

The setting is just right for date night or a romantic evening. The restaurant uses paper menu's to promote sanitary conditions in this era of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Although the menu list limited drinks, they have a full bar, and the bartender mixed up an excellent Apple Martini as well as a very smooth Whisky Sour. The Red Snapper had the perfect blend of seasoning and I would certainly order this dish again.

The grass fed burger was great; one of the best in Charlotte in my opinion. But the vegan option (cauliflower steak) was a big disappointment. Definitely not the caliber of food I have grow accustom to at the Gallery restaurant. Lacked flavor/seasoning and overall appeal.

We have been to Gallery restaurant twice and our dinners were not good. They need to update their menu. Most food on the menu is very spicy and my dinner was cold. Brussel sprouts were burnt too much. The wine list was very good. Our server was great. The food just is not very good.
