No problem with service, our waitress was attentive and we did not wait for anything. Meal was delicious and prices reasonable. If you are staying at the Orchard Hill just eat here, no need to go out. We got the Couples package which gave us dinner for two , breakfast for two plus a cheeseboard and wine on arrival. Great...

My husband and I visited Gala for our 15th anniversary. The food and service were amazing. I had a delicious filet, and the antipasto sampler was incredible. Our waiter (Sasha) was engaging and very attentive. The only downside was that the restaurant was almost empty at 8 p.m. on a Saturday. That felt a little weird. I hope that the... More

My friend brought me there for a birthday celebration and it was a terrible disappointment. We waited at least 10 minutes to be seated and probably another 10 before we ordered. Then we waited almost an hour before we received our food. The people next to us had ordered about 5 minutes before us and they were receiving their bill... More

We came here for breakfast after staying the night at the Orchard hotel. The service was very good and the coffee delicious. However we were seated by the window to the courtyard and noticed a lot of dust on the window sill. We aren't terribly picky but it was enough to notice the place was not cleaned often. Otherwise the... More

I brought 12 friends to Gala last weekend for an important birthday celebration. Everything from the ambiance, bartender (Aiden), waiters (Sasha in the lead), food and wine was perfect. I highly recommend Gala to locals and visitors. Please go and support this fine restaurant and amazing staff.

We went with friends pre-theater on the recommendation of others. The service was very inattentive; the waitress seemed not to know the menu, and once she took the order, was rarely seen again. Even when we tried to find someone to get her, there seemed to be no servers around. It was not a busy night; on a Thursday evening... More

Friends and I have been to the Gala Bistro twice in the past month for lunch. We had the same server who was friendly but on the first visit forgot to give us water and our entrees took a long time to be served. However, the food was good, especially the grilled salmon. On our second visit the server was... More

The food was abysmal. A shrimp cocktail was served on limp lettuce and one shrimp was almost completely black (and naturally uneaten). The sea bass was cold and tasteless, and the dessert was indescribable.

Last night my wife and I dined at the Gala Steakhouse and Bistro in Williamstown, MA. This was not our first visit there nor will it be our last. We discovered this little gem about 2 years ago while looking for a venue to host a dinner party. We were very impressed then with the beauty of the setting, the... More

Marvelous pasta mixed with fresh local produce in a delicious white wine butter sauce and my partner had a hanger steak that was tender and delicious. Good service from Deb, our waitress.
