“Love this place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

The Wine & Cheese Gallery is my favorite restaurant in Gainesville. The food is wonderful, the staff is friendly & down to earth and the outside courtyard is picturesque on a nice day for lunch. I lived in Gainesville for several years & visited them frequently. Now whenever I'm back on business, I always try to stop in for lunch. Great selection of sandwhiches & salads and delicious quiche.

“wine, cheese, lunch and dinner. What more could you want?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

The Wine & Cheese Galley, and its restaurant, Panache, never gets old. They have been purveying fine wines and gourmet cheeses, as well as chocolates, imported beer and other gourmet items, for more than 30 years. Their lunch offerings are consistently good -- besides the salads and sandwiches that have been on the menu forever, there are always excellently prepared daily specials. Now they are open Thursday through Saturday night, to very good reviews -- both with lighter fare and more substantial specials. They are an important mainstay of downtown Gainesville.

“A great place for lunch downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This place has been around for a very long time. Best place to eat is on the back patio if the weather permits. One must walk through the gallery to get to the back and it is very tempting to stop and browse the wines and gourmet goodies one is passing. The menu is simple but everything we have eaten here was delicious. We would go more often if it were not so difficult to find parking.

“Be sure to try dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Now open for dinner a few nights as well as lunch weekdays, excellent moderate priced wines and well ripened cheese. Try the pizza and salad.
