“Food was fine, the manager was a weasel.”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Attended the Jazz festival in February 2014 on the street. Very well attended and very crowded in both the restaurants as well as the street side tables with vendors everywhere serving food. Very confusing for first time attendees as to what was going on and how to proceed. We finally found a table, sat and ordered four drinks and two entrees from the waiter. Then went around to the other vendors and got tapas samples from them at the suggestion of our waiter. The manager came unglued and started yelling at us, even though we spent well over $100 at the table on drinks and food, and many of the other tables were occupied by groups that didn't order anything from La Galeria at all. Totally unprofessional behavior of the manager completely ruined what should have been a very good meal with good service from our waiter. (BTW the blackened tuna steak is VERY good !)

“fantastic”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

We went there on 2/14 and 2/15. Sat outside and enjoyed the San Jose Jazz Festival and excellent dining. Wait staff, food, and wine was to die for.

“Okay”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

We arrived early evening on the 10th of Feb. staying at the La Costa condos. We walked down the street and found this restaurant so decided to give it a try. The waiter what to set us with someone else we said no. It was to hot inside so the site staff brought a small table outside for us. Which was nice. We ordered the garlic rosemary chicken with sweet potato and veggies,a glass of red wine and a lite beer. It took quite a while to come. The meal was just ok. The chicken was flattened but ok flavour the veg was very small and the potato was sweet potato. The price was40$. Not great . Won't go back.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

We visited La Galeria on the Saturday evening before flying home the next day. After 9 days of resort food we wanted something different. Both my husband and I ordered the steak and lobster and were not disappointed. The food was cooked to perfection and the waiters were very attentive. I really enjoyed the atmosphere sitting on the patio by candle light sharing high lights of our vacation with my husband and of course people watching. All in all the experience was awesome and finished off an excellent vacation very nicely. Thank you.

“Just ok”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

They were nice enough to set up a table for 2 for us since the entire patio was full, but the resulting slow service hardly made it worth it. My tuna was fairly good, but my wife wasnt a fan of her meal (garlic shrimp). We ordered the special ice cream desert and they brought us something else. We had to ask 3 times for it to be corrected, and it took another 15mins to get the dessert, which was very tasty. But we were there way too long than we needed to be to give the place a good review.
