Very pleasantly surprised. Food is quite good! New head Chef and co-partner Jimmy is a very talented and personable kind of guy. Food quality has definitely taken an upswing, not seen in years.
The Waiters are all courteous and eager to please and have a hidden sense of humor once you get to know them. They seem to care about what their customers think and hear them greet their steady customers by name and joke around with them. (So they are not as stuffy as they look.) Also heard they now sometimes have a wine pairing/tasting night I would like to try.
Could be considered a bit pricey joint by some, but if you are like me, i know you have probably paid more (at Vincent's or Uncle Bacala's or Seventh Street) for a meal that wasn't half as good as what you get at the Galleria.
Overall comfortable atmosphere. Good for a romantic evening or just party with work associates / friends -- they will do their best to make it an enjoyable occasion. Would definitely go back again and again. We could all use a good place to hang out with friends and enjoy good food and laughs.
