A great addition to Clintonville. Really lovely and dynamic space. They seem to be working out the kinks - service was a bit irregular but the server and the rest of the staff were all quite pleasant. The food was good but not great. The crabcake appetizer was terrific. House and White Lace salads were fresh and tasty. Salmon was good but the sweet potato au gratin was bizarre (slices of sweet potato alternated with cheese). Spaghetti marinara was averrage. Lobster mac and cheese was hearty and tasty.

On a weeknight visit, we had excellent food and great service. Our server provided some very good recommendations and got us an answer from the chef to a question about ingredients in a dish (an allergy concern). We tried the scallops and a striped bass special and loved both. They have a nice drink selection and custom cocktails. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

This is our second time here. We had an excellent server, Hannah, and an outstanding meal. The salmon bites for an appetizer - ummm wonderful! We both had chicken dishes.. I had the gerber chicken and my husband had the piccata… Wow! And served piping hot! Thankyou! Worth the $ spent!

Our first Time at Gallo’s on High. The ambience is amazing, the food was very good, and the service was excellent. This is exactly what Clintonville needed. We were however, a little concerned that we had to wait an additional 30 minutes after our reservation. Several people were sat prior to us and arrived after we did. Reservations should have priority over walk in. Again, a very nice place and we will go back.

Beautiful place. Great service. Food was good but not great. Flatbreads were tasty but soggy. Well-made cocktails. Sound level was deafening. Sound-absorbing materials need to be added.

Great new location for Clintonville. Dined for the first time last night, enjoyed the ambiance including jazz music just loud enough to drown out your neighbors but not too loud as to be offensive. Food and service were great. Will definitely be back.

Amazing chicken piccata!! The John Glenn Airport cocktail was way too heavy on the lavender die my taste so they took it off my bill without me even having to ask! We ate outside on the patio and the constant stream of motorcycles up and down High Street made for a loud and at times difficult atmosphere for conversation. Overall, I would go back and I would order the chicken piccata again and again!

We totally enjoyed our first visit to Gallos on High. The food was great as was the service. We did comment on how loud it was upon arrival, but adjusted and didn't think of it again. I recommend. Over the moon half chicken and chicken piccata, both were delicious and generous portions, so we both had another meal to take home. I am so glad to have this new place in our neighborhood.

Decided to try out their brunch. We had the ambrosia French toast & a breakfast skillet, along with coffee & Mimosas. All were delicious. The menu said 'tableside coffee press' but we did not have that, maybe because of Covid? If it had to be specifically requested, the menu should state that. It was my husband's 60th birthday which I mentioned in our Open Table reservation, but no one at the restaurant mentioned it. Not sure if they have any type of birthday or special occasion recognition. I saw they had outdoor dining, but no umbrellas & it was pretty sunny, so we ate inside. We were impressed with the plexiglass dividers at the bar between every 2 seats & they were not noticeable or distracting.

We were seated at a tall table and not given the option to trade tables, due to the difficulty of getting up onto the high seats, because of being 4”11” and having bad knees. This doesn’t make for comfortable dining with your legs dangling. The manager was unwilling to make a change even though we had a reservation and there were open tables.
The food was not up to the Tommy Gallo standard nor the service. We ordered 2 entrees without the fries with substitutions of salad and asparagus however, fries came with the entrees. We didn’t receive an itemized bill so we were unable to determine if the substitutions were an extra charge on our bill. However, The Pot of Creme was delicious!
