It's fantastic! This is our go to place for every one of our wedding anniversary dinners. They take pride in the food they serve and use top shelf ingredients.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Galena. . I love the ambiance for a romantic meal with my husband. The service is great, the staff is friendly, and of course the food is fantastic. When we make plans to visit Galena, the first thing we do is make a reservation for this spot.

It's a shame the owner/chef says he is retiring because this is hands down the best restaurant in Galena. An American style bistro with some French feel but a British chef. Yummy Wahoo and mussels, very good light curry with scallops and shrimp. This food could stand up in Chicago.

Food is tasty. Service was off last night but she was super nice so we just found it funny. We all had seafood curry and enjoyed it. Desserts all sounded amazing but we were too full. We will come back next time in Galena

On a wintery Friday evening my wife and I were treated to an exception evening of food and wine. As mentioned in multiple other reviews, Chef Stephen is a world-renowned. The setting is small and quaint; about ten or so tables. Our service was impeccable and selections were perfectly prepared and of comparable quality to anywhere we have eaten. Upon... More

Galena is a small river town in Illinois, which has many shops and restaurants. By far the best restaurant is Perry St. Brasserie. The chef/owner is a European gold metal winning master, who previously cooked for British Royalty, the Beatles, Arab sheiks, and Hollywood and sports celebrities. Chef Steve's upmarket menu changes monthly, but always includes lamb, duck, steaks and... More

I hesitate to write this review because I feel lucky we got a reservation with such short notice and I don't want to add to its popularity and make it harder to go back! Put simply, this was one of the best dinners we've ever had, domestic or international. We would have changed nothing, even the price. Anyone who enjoys... More

One of the best meals I've ever had. Super cute, ultra classy restaurant in adorable Galena, with some of the most amazing food, charming owners, and warmest atmosphere you'll find anywhere. There are only ten or so tables in the entire restaurant, so from the first moment of arrival you feel like part of an exclusive and special experience. Then,... More

If you want an outstanding, memorable meal while in Galena, treat yourself to dinner at Perry Street Brasserie. We had one of the most enjoyable plate licking meals in a very long time. The place is small so make reservations. When the soup and salad are outstanding, you know the rest is going to be a treat. We ordered the... More

This is a very impressive restaurant. Beautiful menu, friendly knowledgable wait staff. It's very small place so not many tables which lends to a quiet relaxing atmosphere. It is expensive but totally worth the price. And not matter how much you have had to eat you must order dessert.
