Food was very expensive for what you got. Not that tasty either. They forgot one of my orders and took ages for my cocktail and proceeded to give it to another table.

We live local. Been twice before for drinks. Date nite this week and thoroughly amazed with Galah. Great team of service providers. Chatty and precise. Jazz band added value. Food bloody awesome. Lamb was a bit chewy.
Our Plates were empty!!
Thanks for a fab moment of enjoyment.

Food took awhile to arrive and was warm, at best. Told that they had run out of julienned vegetables to serve with the dip, this was at 6:30pm in a Saturday, run out? Never had? Ordered a martini with a twist no olives, delivered with olives & no twist. When requested it corrected I was told by the waitress that she could just take the olives out...booked a high table but was seated at a low table right outside the toilets, and the smell emanating from them was very strong. On requesting a move the server gave us a look as if we were asking the world & then put us on to the floor manager who moved us without a problem. Music was loud for 6:30 on a Saturday...it seems to be moving to a cocktail venue, no regard for diners. That’s cool, but don’t advertise otherwise.

We didn't order food, just had to put a response in the survey.

Love the fire and music. Slightly too loud for a cocktail bar when the DJ pumped up. Could hear each other at the table which was a shame as we really wanted to chat up with friends.

Wine menu too limited by the glass and drinks a little over priced all up.

Could peg it back a few dollars to keep the cocktails under 20 and wines closer to 11-14 a glass.

Great food and ambience. Nice to have a truly Australian food experience in inner Melbourne. Service was poor, took a long time to get served and had to prompt for drinks

On of Melbourne top new venues... great ambiance with the fireplace and jazz, the service was great and the cocktails are some of the best I’ve tried.

Amazing cocktails but it was impossible to talk. Music was at a club level, IMHO it was unnecessary. Might be back on a different day than Friday evening.

Incredibly busy on a Saturday night. 15 min wait to order drinks. The poor bar staff - that place is so understaffed.
Lovely venue however. Nice music.

Saturday nights are very much orientated towards it being a bar, so would recommend going during the week when it's more low key. Looked great if you were heading there purely for a drink though. Lovely food but the timing was a bit off - last plate served was purely meat and we didn't have many sides left to go with it (it came out quite a bit later than the rest).

A bloody ripper this place. Becoming rarer these days to find good bars with table service. And usually when you do, you'd be quicker getting the drinks yourself. Not here. Waiting staff are amazing - super friendly and really efficient. Great place to hang with mates; definitely a cool date place. Don't be tight; reward the good table service with a smile (and a tip).
