We immensely enjoyed our dinner in this intimate setting. You need to make reservations ahead of time because there is limited seating. The food was outstanding. When we heard that the owner/chef had cooked for The Beatles, we had to try it! The presentation of the food was very well done. The menu is limited but everything we tried was... More

First of all, to all readers please note this lovely restaurant closes on Dec 31, 2016. Allow me to add, they know how to send their customers off with a bang. Our meal was amazing from the mushroom soup, our dinner entrees, to our desserts. The staff was gracious and our meal was served promptly but we didn't feel rushed.... More

While this restaurant had been written up in the Chicago area, it is nevertheless quite a trek from Chicago our to Galena. However I would say that it was worth the trip. While the dining room is much cozier than anticipated, the service and the food were superb. The server provided great insight and advice on the menu items. My... More

Our meals were excellently cooked, however the amount of pepper applied can be correlated directly to the price. Sadly when the server was informed that the dish was over peppered and the vegetables were uneatable. The only resolution was an explanation of the pepper mixture and who has performed the task. There was no offer to replacement vegetables.The cook graciously... More

We had not visited Perry Street for over ten years. The last visit was during our first visit to Galena in 2005. The quality of the food is still very good. The salads were very fresh and topped with homemade dressings. The bleu cheese dressing was fantastic. The crab cake appetizer was just okay, but the entrees were impressive. I... More

Excellent Service but pricey. Food was good but the chef's spice mx was over peppery making some food too spicy for me to eat. Would try the restaurant again.

We had heard good things about this restaurant located a block off of the main street and were looking foreword to a special dinner. We had a reservation so our table was ready. Service was pleasant and friendly. Atmosphere could be called romantic if the food was better. Thought the menu looked good, but when the food arrived it was... More

The pizza was outstanding and the atmosphere on their terrace was perfect for a late evening conversation with family.

What a fantastic find! With a table of 9 in a quaint and intimate space, I wasn't sure how it would turn out... The atmosphere was welcoming, the staff friendly and accommodating, and the food was wonderful! We truly enjoyed the mussels, tuna and crab cake appetizers by all. Personally, I ordered the filet with demi-glaze, and an extra thick... More
