Fabulous dinner! Outdoor dining was so fun! So great to see Tommy Gallo! Our waiter was superb! This is our favorite restaurant! Great neighborhood vibe. Was very safe during this pandemic with mobile menues. The staff wore masks and the bar is separated every 2 seats with plexiglass. Could not have felt more safe!!!

I had the seafood creole for dinner. As always, it was excellent. Great flavor.
The restaurant had appropriately rearranged the tables to ensure safe social distancing and all staff were wearing masks. Definitely felt comfortable eating indoors at this restaurant. Great job!!

As always great food. The chicken etouffee was perfectly seasoned, and very tender accompanied by a side of long grain rice. The Pasta Russo was excellent, from the noodles to the bolognese, absolutely spot on! Of course a trip to Gallo's wouldn't be complete without a table side visit from Tommy! Thanks for the wine recommendation and another great meal!

First time at Gallo. Everyone enjoyed the food. They feature Cajun/Creole dishes. Two tests of a good Cajun restaurant are the fried oysters and the gumbo. Both exceeded my expectations for an Ohio establishment. The service was good. We had a delightful server and all of the dishes ordered were very good. Certainly will go back.

I had the Jumbalaya and asked for it to be spicy. They brought it out and it was great. My wife had the fillet which had a worcestershire sauce glaze which was also delicious. This was my first dining experience at Gallo's and we will be going back.

Have been hearing great things about this place so the wife and i went for our first time. Oddly due to COVID handling there was a nice improvement to the seating, as we learned normally there is no outside seating where we sat. But with new rules we could and it was a beautiful day! I splurged to get the filet and it was awesome! My wife’s seafood medley, like a jambalaya, was great too. All the food and sides were good and the mixed drinks delicious. Definitely had a higher price tag than we usually would do, but was a great meal and service. Will go again!

The food was amazing. Service was slow pre-meal delivery, but that might have been part of the current process changes. Overall it was well worth it and stands above much others.

Food was fantastic! Fried oysters were amazing. I had the mufflata and some gumbo soup. Perfect. A little on the noisy side and table for 2 was tight but otherwise good.

Everything was fine at Gallos Kitchen; however, when we got there for our reservation for our high top table we were told they only had tables in the dining room available. It was as if they were surprised we were asking for them. It was fine, bc we found bar seating.
Gallo’s is delicious consistently.

Hi Stacy. You're right you did surprise us with your high top reservation. When we set up Open Table we made sure the setting would not allow for high top reservations as our bar area is on a first come first serve basis. We were unaware the setting had some how been changed without us knowing. I'm glad it worked out that we found you bar seats right away. After a quick call to Open Table, the settings have been corrected so there won't be any future surprises. Thank you for your patronage!

The steaks are phenomenal every time. This place knows presentation, flavor, quality and service. Meals are timed well and servers are attentive and ‘read’ a table well. Servers chat if you want to talk. They remain silent if you are involved with your dining party. Delicious variety as well as special menus every night. Delicious!

Amazing from start to finish. This was our 8th visit and Gallo’s never disappoints. Food is interesting and always comes out quickly hot and delicious. Service is amazing. The cocktails we had were delicious as well. This might be the best restaurant in Columbus. Fancy enough for a date night relaxed enough for a family dinner with teenagers. Thank you Gallo’s
