"Well cooked and presented Mediterranean food. Service was friendly helpful and fast. Menu had a good variety of items to choose from as did the drinks menu.
This was our second visit. Our first visit was shortly after the restaurant opened and we found everything was much improved. We are very happy we gave Galata Bistro a second chance. We will be back again."

"Galata has the best Gyro I have already tried as well the rice.
The ambience is very simple although cozy. The service is fast and professional.
The cold sampler plate is amazing.
Good price for the food .

"My moussaka was cold on the inside so clearly it was just being reheated from being made before and the grilled vegetables that I got in place of rice were oily burnt peppers. The only thing that was good on that plate was the salad. Unfortunately, I wasn't in a mood to argue with anyone or send the food back. I won't be back."

"I came for my birthday along with my husband and my son. This was my second visit to Galatea. I was not disappointed. The Salmon salad was fantastic and I had the beef kabobs as well... fantastic. The rice and other sides on the plate were equally as delicious.
My husband had the roasted beet salad and he was very disappointed... he expected the beets to be roasted and they did not seem to be.
My son was very impressed with the food and he gave it two thumbs up. The desserts are so delicious: the rice pudding is creamy but not too rich, the ice cream with its exotic flavors of saffron and pistacio is unforgettable and the baklava... well I have never tasted better.
We will come back again and again.

"We weren't looking for a hot-spot or something that would blow us away - it was just a Tuesday night after all. So I'm not overly disappointed, but I don't see a reason to come back. The food itself was fresh but the portions and servings were odd. My vegetarian plate had rice, five falafel, cabbage, and a thimble of hummus. The glass of wine I had ordered had probably been opened the previous Saturday.
The service was poor; they seemed fairly busy for a Tuesday night but only had two people covering the entire restaurant (serving, running, and manning the bar). Our server was only mildly attentive, which I understand given the busy dinner hour but they could have used another body."
