I love the food here, but the server was not very friendly and cleared our dishes away before we were finished eating! I don't think she wanted to be working here on a Friday night. I'll return again; I hope to have better service.

Had lunch here today and the food was so flavorful and the portions plentiful. Service was very good and the prices reasonable, especially for the quality and quantity of the portions.

Went for a casual dinner and wanted something different. It fit the bill. Food was impressive from appetizers, to main to dessert which we shared. Would go back again, It’s BYOB which is fine, sometimes I perfer it that way.

It’s rare to find an unassuming restaurant with terrific food, beautifully presented, and attentive, well trained wait staff. Galata clearly takes care to see that its customers have a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. And we did!
