Small place BIG flavors

This is a local gem with limited space. Plan ahead and get a reservation. Nice wine selection. Interesting small plates, soups, salads and large plates. Servers are engaging and the entire dining experience is a treat.

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday. We enjoyed an awesome appetizer, entrees and drinks in the back outdoor area. They have a huge drink menu with old fashioned cocktails. Always a lot of fun, even if you're just stopping in for a late-night fancy nightcap!

Global Gourmet is one of my most favorite restaurants, ever. There is nothing that I don't love about it - the space itself has a terrific ambiance and the patio is a romantic spot, mostly in the sense that it reminds me of small restaurant patios in New York, Puerto Rico, Rome, that are just comfortable and perfect for dining,...

This is my favorite place for a date night in Carbondale. The atmosphere has a city feel to it and the service is very good. The wine list is great and very reasonably priced. The food has been consistently great. This time i had a very delicious wedge salad, a perfectly cooked stake and a yummy bread pudding. Would definitely... More

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.
