Gala Steakhouse and Bistro is warm & inviting restaurant located inside The Orchards Hotel in lovely Williamstown Massachusetts in the heart of The Berkshires. With it's not often found blend of classic and contemporary cuisine Gala offers something for everyone. Since becoming Gala in 2006 the restaurant has been reinvented to provide an experience not easily rivaled. Gala boasts an elegant dining room with breathtaking views of it's adjacent courtyard. The menu, created by Executive Chef Bill Sheridan, satisfies both the casual and formal diner by offering dishes such as Coq au Vin and Lobster Mac & Cheese in the winter season and Softshell Crab and Grilled Swordfish in the summer.

After reading many positive reviews, we looked forward to dining at the Gala Steakhouse. The food was just okay, certainly not gourmet, but very pricey.

We were staying at the Orchards Hotel and we ate here for breakfast in the morning and for 2 evening meals. We thoroughly enjoyed eating here. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We had a couple of minor issues about gluten free items but it was taken care of promptly. The chef was very responsive to requests... More

The spinach salad was superb. But the steaks were overlooked and not so great. And at these prices they should be cooked perfectly. Staff was nice...attentive. I was surprised it was so empty on a Saturday night.

I marked the service 'average' as it now seems average for Williamstown - slow, not so fast to take away dirty plates or refill drinks. (in another town I'd mark service poor) Homefries instead of fried were requested - fries came out. The whole dish was taken away and brought back about 10 minutes later corrected. The server was at... More

I don't mind paying for an outstanding meal, I enjoy a creative menu and love to try something new. So I was excited about the menu and chose the duck and apple ravioli with blueberry sauce but there was something terribly off about the meal. I was really disappointed. It felt like the chef wasn't up to the ambition of... More
