Close to the theatre. The food was excellent and varied. All issues were responded well by the Waite staff. Very romantic.

My wife and I went for dinner see after seeing Romance Novels for Dummies at Williamstown Theater festival. It is a nice restaurant with an interesting menu, and we chose to eat outside on the patio in a pleasant garden setting. I had the venison burger with the heirloom tomato salad and I really enjoyed the latter. Since I do... More

First time having a meal here with my mother. We sat outside and it's so beautiful on the back patio. The server was great, brought us a small app which was compliments of the chef. Made us feel like we were VIP. We then received our app quickly, salads quickly and the entree was also quickly brought out. Delicious and... More

Had a reservation on Father's Day. When we arrived, the place was empty. That was clue number 1. Brought me a Blue Moon draft beer twice. I ordered a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I can taste the difference. Couldn't make my wife's drink because they were out of pineapple juice. Forgot to ask my daughter what she wanted to drink.... More

Gala actually offers both a bar with a cozy fireplace and a large dining room. You can eat AT the bar or at one of many tables. Menu offerings are creative, but always include familiar time tested main dishes. Salads are great. The lamb chops are absolutely delicious. Portions are good sized, but do leave you room for a nice... More

This restaurant is inside The Orchards Hotel. I breakfasted here two mornings and the had the same server, Megan who was attentive and friendly. I had eggs Florentine one morning and a truly massive omelette the next. The food was delicious and set me up for the day. I recommend this restaurant for breakfast.

The Sunday Easter brunch At Gala was awful! The Prix fixe was $39./person for app, entree, dessert. The salad dressing was way too sweet, the leg of lamb was the worst tasting, fatty, grisly lamb ever! We had to send it back to the kitchen because it was cold. It came back semi warm but still tasting awful. The dessert... More

Whether sitting in a cozy banquette or at the bar, you'll enjoy the warm ambience , just right lighting and decor and comfortably welcomed by the friendly staff. The food is always tasty. Can be pricey but the bistro menu is just rightly priced and quite varied. We love the hangar steak when it's on the menu.

Besides the obvious convenience factor of not needing to leave the hotel for dinner, the food and service were excellent.
