Global Gourmet sits on the north side of "The Square" in Carbondale. The restaurant is the most romantic in Carbondale and feels hip, yet mature. Global Gourmet offers a world class selection of spirits and wines and makes excellent desserts; it's become my wife's and my favorite spot to go on date nights after having an early dinner and seeing...

The G spot is the name of the outside patio where you can enjoy drinks and food in a cozy atmosphere. I've been here 5 times and haven't been disappointed. The menu changes monthly which I like. Last trip I had the salmon with bourbon honey butter,rice and asparagus. As an app I had the delicious artichoke dip that came... More

Small restaurant in a cute area in Carbondale! Casual yet elegant atmosphere. Drinks were fantastic! We had the spinach artichoke dip appetizer and it was amazing! Salmon was excellent. My husband had the lamb and it lacked flavor and was pretty pricey! We will definitely return for another date night but not order the lamb next time.

I really enjoy the food here. The ever changing menu is delightful. Unfortunately the atmosphere is loud and the wait staff is average at best. Because of the atmosphere we don't dine here often, we have just not found the experience worth it

Eclectic mix of cuisines which made the choice of dinner entree challenging. I opted for a Cuban pork dish which was tender and delicious - spiciness, flavor and heat just right. Mt husband chose Greek Kefketedes, which were equally good. Friendly, knowledgeable wait staff and thoughtful service.

Fantastic food! Fantastic atmosphere! People who work here are happy - kudos to the proprietor. Who, in fact, I was lucky to meet and even learn something from. I had a suspicion that he was one of those 'living his dream' owners. He came over to ask my wife and I if he could take our picture (we had our... More

Small portions and high prices. This is what passes for quality in Carbondale. The food what little you get is good though.

This is a cute little place that has a wonderful atmosphere and menu, but the service is REALLY slow. I understand they make everything from scratch and I appreciate that, however, it's obvious the kitchen and the staff can't keep up with the amount of customers in that place. I would go back, but it would be when I know... More

This is a small, quaint restaurant but the food is really good. The menu changes weekly so you have to keep up and you most likely need to make reservations. Don't worry about saving room for dessert, the dinner portions are not big. It's a bit pricey but worth it for the right occasion.

Very nice atmosphere. Reminded me of some of the new restaurants in Chicago like the Purple Pig. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was fresh and creatively prepared. Everything was delicious. Champagne cocktails were a nice way to celebrate a special occasion. Prices are very reasonable.
