I would come back just to go to this restaurant

The drinks were delicious (we tried the highball, cherry martini, and one with mango that I can't remember the name). The waitstaff was beyond friendly. Even said we could email them for recipes of the food we liked! I believe the menu changes, but from the different dishes my husband and I tried... read more

Small quaint, quiet place in a small town; with big city taste, talent, and presentation. The best cocktails in the area. Mexican Highball is not to be missed. Martinis are perfect with hand stuffed olives!

We had tried to get reservations before and this year we made it over the 4 th of July. The small environment just adds to the dining experience. Take time to look at the brass plates adorning the walls. Open table made the reservation easy. The menu offers something for everyone. The special of lobster, shrimp and scallops with coconut...

We stumbled across this place and what a find!!! Everything we had was delicious!!! The best hummus I've ever had!! I had a lamb dish and my girlfriend had a pork chop dish...both were so delicious. The best dining experience I've had in years, maybe the best ever!!! It will be a mandatory stop on future trips to Galena.

My husband and I escaped Wisconsin for a one-day anniversary getaway. I picked PSB based on Trip Advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. It's tiny and you wouldn't pick it out from the other restaurants on Main Street, but it's worth seeking out. It's filled with replicas of engraved brass memorials and did seem a bit like a cozy...

After reading great reviews of Perry Street Brasserie we decided to check it out during a visit to Galena. It is a cozy little restaurant with a very skilled and friendly wait staff. We had the veal and the salad and it was good but not great. The bread was excellent. We also had the chocolate dessert which was the... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Perry St Brasserie! The veal & mushroom soup was light but flavorful. Even though it is not a place you would expect to see children, the staff were super sweet and accommodating of our two-year old. She had the hummus & pita. The pita was were unbelievably soft and fluffy. My ribeye was incredibly... More

We have to echo the other accolades for this great restaurant. While a little noisy at first, it quickly became a fun, lively atmosphere with people lingering because you didn't want the meal to end. The chef, we learned, is very fussy and rejects anything that is not perfect. Hence, no asparagus that evening. The baked oysters were light but... More
