I booked dinner for two at Galley and turned up to find the restaurant closed and dark. I had no information from either OpenTable or the restaurant that they were closed. Very disappointing indeed. I don't understand how they could have booked a dinner when they knew it would be closed.
Accepted reservation but is closed
Even though our reservation was accepted, this restaurant has in fact closed down.
Restaurant accepted reservations but appears permanently closed
The restaurant is closed for good it seems. Don’t know why Opentable taking bookings and threatening £10 fine if you don’t turn up then only to get there and find it’s shut down.
Galley was one of the best restaurants in Islington however we arrived Friday evening, having booked on open table to find the restaurant shut. It appears to have closed, the name is removed, but there was no obvious sign to say why or if it had moved from its Upper St location. We really hope it re-opens. Much missed by us.
Fantastic service and the food was out of this world. We had oysters prepared every way possible and the seafood platter for two. Perfectly prepared and more than enough.
First time here and decided to go with the fish platter to share. This was a beautiful selection of mussels, clams, prawns, sea bass, soft shell crab and shrimp. The portion for us was about right in size and ours was all cooked perfectly. Nothing over cooked, the skin on the fish crisp but the fish still moist and the texture of the rest was just right. Drank a nice bottle of Gavi with it. Lovely evening and I’m sure I’ll be back.
Waiter did not attend to us even after having said it was my best friends birthday. I had to go to the front of house after 30 mins wait to ask if someone could attend to us.
The man who was in charge that night with a foreign accent has very poor customer service and was rude!
Fantastic dining experience! Booked on the day for a last minute birthday celebration. On entering the ambience of the restaurant was great. We were welcomed straight away by a senior member of staff to a booth specially selected for us due to the special occasion. The service was excellent, with good food recommendations and the staff were extremely attentive without being overbearing. The food was amazing, there is a great menu choice - you know it’s good when you can’t settle on what to have, it all sounded delicious! And the quality of the ingredients were fantastic. I was pleasantly surprised to discover such a good find in a gem of a restaurant so close to home. Our evening was even ended with a little birthday surprise dessert which made the recipients day. A wonderful experience and we will definitely be back!
Delicious food as always
I've been here many times and I always leave a bit frustrated. The food is great, the atmosphere is lovely and the place is beautiful. The service, while incredibly friendly, is always slow, sometimes painfully so. If that would be sorted it would get 5* plus from me.
Very helpful staff
I love the tuna tartare
Never disappoint us. Amazing food! Seafood is always Fresh- it is really hard to find a place that does just that. On top of that friendly staff and good service- always!
While the food was very good, the ambience was weird. Music was loud and like we were in a bar. The quality of the food didn't match the ambience and web site made it seem a bit classier than it was.
Real quality food with friendly service. Perfect before the theater.
Family Birthday Dinner.
Great offer, tasty food (bottomless mussels) and very good service
Went for a girlie catch up and thought the food was very good indeed. The tuna ceviche was beautiful, fresh and clean tasting. The sea bass gnocchi was gorgeous. The prawns delicious. I thought the courgette fritters were a bit too greasy for my tastes, but my friends seemed to polish them off with no problem. Two cocktails for £10 is good value, but they lacked much in the way of alcohol (often the case with happy hour cocktails I find!) Our waitress was lovely and attentive and didn't rush us at all. I would definitely go again.
A lovely casual lunch . The hummus was excellent and loved the lobster spaghetti. Good value and lovely staff .
Food was OK, services was OK, ambience was OK! Quite expensive for what it was. I was surprised that a fish restaurant didn't have a "catch of the day" - in fact it was a fairly limited menu.
Very good food, excellent service, and a fair price. Lovely evening and happy guests :-)
It was our first visit to Galley, we really enjoyed it, oysters were great, food in general was very good. We had a lovely waiter called Blaze, very knowledgeable and warm service. We’ll definitely return. Thank you. The Frays.
Service was slow
Service was above and beyond and they made us feel massively welcome and were very warm. The food was also delicious!
The food was really great. We had the special lobster, it was cooked perfectly.
terrific sea food platter! great service all round. 2for1 cocktails are good value
We ordered a selection of oysters and starters and they were all great.
The oysters were particularly good and I would also recommend the scallops.
Service was wonderful - lovely, friendly staff and knowledgeable about the food and wine.
On discovering that it was my birthday our waitress brought a ‘birthday treat’ over - it was the the perfect end to our evening.
Another excellent afternoon / evening at this restaurant, great food, great wine & a nice enviroment to enjoy a social meet with a friend, couldn't recommend this enough truly wonderful
Great service, amazing cocktails and fresh oysters
Always great service and food. I first went here when a friend and I were searching for brunch and hadn’t booked. The restaurant was fully booked and the manager found us a table and was so kind about it. I’ve been there 4 times now and the service and food and food has always been 10/10.
Good brunch place and cocktails! They also have a decent vegan menu and options for sharing smaller plates. The food was delicious and the service was lovely and prompt. Was nicely filled not too busy on the Saturday afternoon we went.
Mediocre . . . not bad . . . but very mediocre.
absolutely love this place & it never fails to deliver amazing food, i went with my partner & we had a selection of Oysters, scallops, squid & other sides whilst our 2 children had chicken escalope & the fish & chips. The House wine was fantastic & Bellini cocktails to die for, we were amazed when offered a generous discount on the Drinks which i think runs Mon - Fri.
Fabulous service and great food
The service was excellent but the food was overpriced for what it was .
Food was mediocre, "english"version of slightly dried up sea food platter, expected a lot more after reading reviews
Good food. Good service. Enjoyable.
