“Two for two!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Our second visit to this restaurant provided another great dining experience. Food was top notch and our server ( Rio? ) was very knowledgeable and efficient. The dining room manager was also very engaging and added to the all the components that this wonderful restaurant has to offer. All courses were presented beautifully as well. Love this hotel and this restaurant. Highly recommend both.

“Great Service, Very Good Food”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

On a recent trip to Charlotte, I spent a night in the Ballantyne hotel and stopped down for dinner at Gallery. I ate at the bar and was impressed by the friendliness of the staff. They offered a very nice cocktail menu and an interesting menu. I was very pleased with my salmon, which was perfectly prepared. I'd return... especially if I was staying in the hotel!

“Not all it's cracked up to be”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

My wife and I dine at many fine establishments. We have dined at Gallery a few times in years past. Since we were staying at the resort, we decided to eat here again. What a disappointment. I had to send my entree back and when it was returned to the table, it was not the same description as the menu. We were really let down. My wife said her burger tasted like a beef party and my lamb rack would have been better prepared on my Weber grill at home. Will not be here in the future.

“Awesome, but what happened to the menu?”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

First time back since the remodel and new menu. The food is more eclectic than before, which for foodies, is great. I, for one, am a meat and potatoes guy, so most of the menu was lost on me. Totally miss the favorites like shrimp and grits and the filet. I get they are going more seasonal, but still should have some regular items on the menu.

Everything was wonderful, just disappointed in the shift in the menu. Will go back with different expectations.
