Ryan Lattanzio of IndieWire gave the film a "B–" grade praised Viswanathan's performance as "totally winning" and wrote: "The Broken Hearts Gallery is pure glossy fantasy, though Viswanathan's puckish and self-deprecating performance suggests a greater mess waiting to break out of this slick offering. (For all its sleekness, Alar Kivilo's cinematography deftly captures the patchwork textures of Brooklyn.)"
