Wonderful brunch with excellent service. Variety of selections between breakfast/lunch options. Liked the set up of 2 course or 3 course. Nice to find a good brunch when so few are offered in B'ham.

My best friend had her bridesmaid's luncheon here and it was just perfect. The food was amazing and the staff was great too. They took great care of us and we could not have had a better experience.

I really enjoyed eating here for our early Valentine's day dinner. The staff was very pleasant, accommodating, and never let our water get low. All the workers were following CDC guidelines, wearing masks and socially distant. Food was excellent. Would come back!

I was planning a bridal luncheon for a dear friend's daughter and had no idea how to find and secure a venue in the time of Covid. After researching many options, I decided to go with Galley & Garden and I am so glad that...I did. Teri Stewart, the event coordinator, could not have been more organized and helpful, the venue was absolutely perfect, the food was delicious and the staff was attentive and gracious. It didn't hurt that the weather was completely perfect as we dined on the patio. I would recommend it without reservation for any event-from an intimate lunch or dinner to a rehearsal dinner or wedding reception. Thank you, Garden & Galley, for being an absolute treasure during this pandemic.More

On June 25th, we made reservations for a bourbon tasting hosted by Galley & Garden, we lost track of the time, therefore the wife and I were late, the tasting had concluded over an hour before our arrival. The staff still welcomed us, and they...provided all of the bourdon samples, along with the appetizers served at the event; went ahead while there and ordered off the dinner menu, food was great, ambiance excellent, individual staff exceptionally welcoming, which was greatly appreciated. When in Alabama at my ranch along the Cahaba River, we frequent this establishment from time to time, highly recommend.More

My wife and I went to Paris last year and haven't found any food on the same caliber until we tried out Galley & Garden! Our server was unbelievable and the food was insane! The portions were perfect. We will absolutely be back!

Loved the cocktails and charcuterie! The “Empire” made me remember how much I like Manhattans. We had the special (Alabama Wagyu ribeye with truffle sauce) and the short ribs. Delicious. We shared the chocolate mousse for dessert. It was a perfect spot for a birthday...dinner.More

Took my daughter out to dinner after coming into town to tour Cumberland Law at Samford. I have dined at G&G several times and it doesn't disappoint. Cocktails and wine by the glass selection were very good. Menu is simple, but the food is quality....We were seated upstairs and for a Friday night, the crowd seemed a little light, I was expecting a larger crowd. Good for us as the staff was attentive and were served promptly.More
