    I had the salmon that was absolutely delish. My friends shared the porterhouse - I took a bite and there was something I didn't like - a seasoning or something. I prefer steak plainer. There was a sauce on the side of the steak that I used for my salmon and it was awesome. But the one that stuck out was that the waitress was so nice and friendly and helpful - substitutions were not a problem. It was a nice night.

    Been to this restaurant many times, however due to numerous events going on at the same time, the restaurant was noisy to the point of not being able to hear the people you were seated with. Also due to these events, service was slow. Still the food was good and the owner was fantastic as usual.

    We found this restaurant when looking for American cuisine so everyone had options- Galo Tavern 18 did that. Appetizers were substantial, food very good, service excellent. The only negative was that the specials were a bit pricey but I did not ask the price before ordering so that’s on me. I would definitely go back.

    This is the second time we ate here. The first time was great. Tonight was not so good. I’m not sure if they were short staffed but it wasn’t the same service and food as the first time. Also, the noise level coming from one party was obnoxious. I couldn’t hear my family talking to me.

    We went there for Mother’s Day with a party of 7 and we enjoyed ourselves. Food was tasty, reasonably priced and our waiter was exceptional, attentive and literally amazing. The truffle Mac and cheese was everything. Like all the appetizers were delicious. The shrimp, the wings, everything.

    We sat down at our reserve time. The waiter was horrible. He didn’t even know what anything about the special menu. He took our order and he forgot to bring over our salads. Dinner took a long time to serve. He was a horrible waiter. The food was average an expensive. I would not go back here. Update: Owner called to apologize. Asked us to come back and give them another chance. He said was sending a gift card to us for the price we paid for dinner. NEVER sent. Scratch this place.

    We love Galo Tavern 18 for burgers. Tonight we tried a steak sandwich and the Portuguese chicken. Delicious side dishes as well. Luigi's seems to get a bigger crowd, but this is our choice when in the area. We have been here many times and Tavern 18 never disappoints.

    Service is always very good. Nice selection of beers on menu and good variety of food, but I find the chefs here can go a little heavy on seasonings and sauces. Still, very much worth a visit.
