Many visits, however this requires feedback. Excellent staff, the service is outstanding and the food is fresh. This is not a large restaurant so reservations or off prime time dining is a good idea. Takeout is also available (which I use frequently) When I did...More

Some friends took us here for dinner last night and I cannot believe I've never been before. It was excellent. I had the Scallops étouffée...it was fantastic. I know a lot of superlatives, but there are deserved. My wife had the halibut on polenta and...More

Gallo's is a surprisingly good local haunt. Their wings are brined, and they have two regular sauce flavors along with a daily special flavor. I like their beer selection, and the bar area is consistently packed, especially for happy hour. I've also had their meatballs...More

I have to admit that I feel kinda silly reviewing Gallo's Kitchen. There are zillions of reviews telling how great this place is so I feel like I'm cheating. This was our first visit and we will definitely be coming back. The food was marvelous!...More

As frequent visitors to Louisiana, we're used to decent Cajun food. Some folks try to fake it, but it seems genuine here. The service is prompt, courteous and professional. The big problem with Gallo's menu is that you won't be able to decide what it...More

We had the gumbo, house salad, jambalaya, and crawfish etouffe. The gumbo was outstanding (but where was the okra?), but the rest was barely average. The salad was overdressed and looked eerily similar to the bags of salad mix at the grocery store. The base...More
