Gale’s has an extensive menu — pasta, fish ,steak — and manages to cook everything with excellent taste and flavor . And unlike many restaurants , the dishes are served hot straight to your table . Try the salmon, the linguini, or the Tuscan steak . If you don’t want a dessert, sample the home - made biscotti with your coffee

Such an amazing meal all around, from kid’s pizza to pasta of all types (including one gluten free dish) to delicious fish. HUGE portions. The wine list was unbelievable—who has Prisoner sin and Supery cab by the glass?!—and our great server steered us to a great 2013 cab that they sold for less than the current price for that vintage on wine.com. Highly recommended!

This restaurant is ssooo good. It is a little expensive and nicer, so don’t bring your young children here. The food is amazing and they service is really great. Highly recommend this place.

Disappointed. It was a busy Friday night, with a line for those that did not have a reservation. That set the tempo for our evening. You feel like you are being pushed out the restaurant as soon as you sit down. Our entrees were set on the table while we were all barely half way done with our appetizers. And one of our guests' entree was whisked away before he had finished. We felt harried throughout the meal. The food can best be characterized as "family style". Decent portion sizes, but somewhat tasteless/overcooked dishes.

We were a large group on a recent business dinner. Food was good, wine and beer selection was excellent, service was good. Loved their appetizers. Parking is a problem as it is limited behind the restaurant. Entree options for vegetarians is limited.
