Delicious food at the bar, friendly professional staff, and good food. Really happy to know that there is a restaurant in this hotel for breakfast and a late dinner at the bar after Williams sports. Great recommendation!

My wife and I eat out almost every day and sometimes twice a day. If this restaurant was in our town at home we would be going here 3-4 times a week. We are staying at a timeshare but decided to go to brunch on Sunday. I had the 3 egg omelet and my wife had salmon on a bagel.... More

Whether dining formally in the restaurant or informally in the pub, a diner can't go wrong. We especially enjoy the more informal atmosphere of the pub, but the quality of the food is just about as good as it gets. The menu offers a wide range of enticing items served appealingly on the plate. A fine selection of beers and... More

It doesn't matter what season we visit GALA, we are always welcomed with friendly waitstaff and scrumptious meals. The menu changes often enough so when we do go back, there is always something new and inviting on the menu. It's worth the extra few dollars to enjoy a meal that includes locally grown produce and food.

Great place for a leisurely breakfast even if you are not staying there. Dinners are good but pricey. Do not eat at the bar, the service can be very slow for dining.

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
