    My wife and I got together with friends as we do periodically for dinner. This gathering was at Galo Tavern 18 which we have heard many good things about. The food and experience matched the expectations. Marissa, our server, was attentive and personable all evening. Our group stayed late and closed the place. We will be back! My question is, where are the other 17?

    Food was excellent. Our server was great. I had pork chop special, in a port wine sauce. Meat was incredibly tender. I would order that again . My friends had the blackened swordfish, which was also outstanding.

    I booked here since I saw the 50% off deal on Open Table - $30 for 22oz steak. I went there and found on the menu it was only 20 oz and I had to ask to locate this deal. The environment is more like a noisy sports bar instead of an elegant restaurant. Very noisy and dark. Food wise I ordered spinach along with the steak. It was so oily with tons of garlic. I couldn’t even finish that small side and when I got home, I threw out all the spinach.

    I made a last minute reservation on Open Table and thank goodness I did. We were sat right away even when we were three minutes late. We ordered drinks which we had the Blue Mule, Blood Orange Margarita, and a Coke. We had the Fritto Misto and Artichoke Dip. The Fritto Misto was amazing. Lightly fried shrimp, calamari, and zucchini. It was served with a spicy mayo. Amazing. We ordered the black bean burger, mini burgers, and the grilled chicken basil. The food was amazing. Everything was perfect. The staff was attentive all while the place was packed with a huge party in their party room. The food was spot on. The place was clean including the restroom. The owner came over to check on us and even brought us dessert. For dessert we had the chocolate lava cake, vanilla ice cream, a double espresso, and a sam booka. The price is right and we will definitely be back. Thank you again and you definitely deserve this five star rating.

    There was a very large noisy group who stood around and blocked us from getting in and we could not get our usual booth. We would not have come if we knew this in advance. It lasted for about 30 minutes till they left but it ruined the evening for me.

    I have ordered the steak from here several times in the past and it has been great but this time it seemed like they had a new cook or something because the steak was cooked inconsistently. Some parts were overcooked, other parts were undercooked, and some parts were cooked perfectly. The other dishes we ordered were good however and the service was great.

    Ordered the seafood special. Waiter explained it as a linguine with lobster and shrimp with a scampi sauce. It came and was not a scampi sauce but it was a Alfredo sauce and all seafood was overcooked. Waiter didn’t come back for quite awhile to ask how everything was so I ate it because others at the table were eating and I was hungry. Other friend ordered the tilapia dish and it had shrimp and risotto in it. Shrimp was overcooked and risotto was undercooked. Wouldn’t recommend the seafood but the steak looked delicious that other person had.

    Have been there for happy hour and I think maybe a little larger cocktail list for happy hour and 3 sliders instead of 2 . I have been there for regular dinners and everything is very good . On Thursday the steak for 2 is a good deal and the steak is very good I just think 1 side or salad should be included. I have also had a bunch of private patty’s there and everything was very good. I would recommend tavern 18 to everyone. Good job

    This time I had to take one star away. We made reservations on Open Table. No problem when we arrived. The waiter came over and took our drink order. We had the Blue Mule and the Blood Orange Margarita. They were great. We ordered the spinach and artichoke dip with the chips and the Kobe Cheese Burger Sliders. The sliders were amazing. Hands down the best sliders I have ever eaten. The sliders were cooked to perfection, the buns, and tomatoes were fresh. The bread is always great there. I tried to order the pork loin which they said they didn't not have tonight. In a haste I order the steak sandwich. Here is where the star was lost. The steak was very chewy and fatty. I ended up taking apart the sandwich and ate the ham and cheese. The fries were great and the oil they fried them in was fresh. We ordered the black bean burger and chicken tenders and fries. The black bean burger they said wells great and the chicken tenders were real chicken tenders, not that frozen diner crap. The price was right at the end of the night.
