Excellent food, quaint atmosphere, great for a couple

The food is outstanding, one of the top 3 steaks I have experienced while traveling, both domestically and abroad. The dining area is quaint without feeling small or crowded and is perfect for a nice romantic dinner or small celebratory meal with an intimate group of friends.

This place is somewhat hidden from the mainstream, overlooked by many tourists to the city. That is the biggest mistake each visitor could make, as no trip to Galena would be complete without visiting Perry Street. The chef offers classic French cooking with some of his own twists. The restaurant is best described as cozy, in a good way. The... More

Had dinner at the finest (and most expensive) restaurant in Galena. The food was excellent. Loved the seasoned oil into which we dipped the bread. Dessert served in a large chocolate ball was fabulous but serves 3-4 people. For the price the service was marginal. Did not get the bread for 15 min. Generally that should be our with or... More

Like others, we picked Perry Street based on other TA reviews, and they pretty well capture the place. The food is quite good -- our lamb and duck entrees were spot on, nice pairing of meat, sausage and veggies, and everything had tons of flavor. Be forewarned about the chocolate cup dessert -- it's a mountain of chocolate shell, chocolate... More

We chose PSB based on reviews at Trip Advisor and so very glad we did. We had a lovely table by the front window, and attentive but not intrusive server. We both had the Kobe beef ribeye special and it was seasoned perfectly and cooked perfectly. Our mixed green salads and in house made dressing were flavorful and crisp. While... More

I found the restaurant on TripAdvisor and my husband said well okay but it looks kind of expensive. Well, let's just say we got more than what we paid for. By the time we left he stated that was the "best" meal he has ever had. We had an adorable table by the window in this cute small restaurant. The... More

Best food in galena. The flavor combinations are out standing and unexpected. The chef came out and spent time with us after our meal. He was extremely easy to talk to and offers up his recipes. What a fantastic place. You must go.

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. We don't splurge often, but when we do we go to Perry Street. A few years ago my husband got a Kobe steak, it was the best he ever had. Most... More
