This was our first time in Galena and chose this Perry Street as our dinner on the first night. Let me say, we were very happy we did. My wife and I are from Chicago and frequently dine at very high end restaurants in Chicago and I was a touch worried when a review said that if we were from... More

My husband decided on this place based on the great reviews here and we were soooo glad we did, you'd be hard pressed to find another restaurant in Galena or anywhere in the Chicago area that takes such care to prepare and present such excellent, original, choices. I didn't want it to end, and wanted to lick my plate. For... More

My husband and I were engaged there in 2012 and we have gone back on our engagement date(as well as some other times throughout the year) and every time we visit they make us feel super special. The cuisine is amazing and they are very friendly. Try the st. Lucia feature! This is the fine dining restaurant in galena that... More

My husband and I had reservations for 5:30. To early for our liking but it was all that was available when we booked. We arrived at 5:30 to only two other tables seated and when we left only 4 tables had customers. The staff was there for our every need. Friendly and knowledgable. Our meals were excellent. Veal cutlets stuffed... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by a friend, but if you are a foodie from a major city, you should stay away! My friend and I ordered 2 glasses of $15/glass Bordeaux, which was ok but served in the wrong glass. When I asked the server to swap stemware for the better Bordeaux glasses I spied across the way that... More

Ambitious menu but done well. If you are looking for a elegant evening out or a celebrating a special occasion, enjoy what Perry Street can offer. The wine list is small but very reasonably priced. The food is done well but should be simpler. The quality of the protein is excellent, so let those flavor shine. Do not misunderstand me,... More

This was hands down one of the best meals I have ever had in my life. My sisters and I were out on a girl's weekend and had been recommended to come here. We went in a whim at 5:30 on Saturday and were told we wouldn't be seated till about 8:30. That was fine with us as we had... More

Very disappointing second time at this restaurant. Definitely overpriced for the quality/quantity. (Note: my initial and first time visiting this restaurant I gave it a rave review - outstanding.) The service this time was mediocre. The restaurant is a small room with tables close together, and one loud table last night, 4 very loud men, acted as if they were... More
