“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

I made reservations, so we were seated by the window upon arrival. The restaurant filled up quickly that Friday night. Our server was quick and attentive. We had the artichoke dip appetizer, the duck, and a steak. The food was all delicious, but the dessert was amazing! I highly recommend the chocolate raspberry truffle cake. Great place for a date.

“Perfect for a late, light dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Our son took us to this restaurant which turned out have perfect offerings for a late dinner. We ordered four items from the small plates section of the menu and each was interesting, tasty and made a great meal. The building has a lovely pressed tin ceiling and a warm character. This is a great find in a town that has a plethora of restaurant chains.

“Pappas in Little Egypt - Carbondale”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

My son and I were flying to Oshkosh for the annual air show and stopped in Carbondale to revisit where I grew up. Wanting a light dinner we picked the Global Gourmet for their tappas. A great choice. Carbondale is s somewhat limited in its choices and the GG was a great pick. The spicy pork, smoked salmon and roasted garlic were all very pleasing. Service was efficient and personable. Most nights there is live entertainment as well. Poetry some nights and music other nights. A great alternative to steaks and fried food. Trust me on this.

“Always a tongue pleaser”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Love, love LOVE GG! Mainly because you step inside and you no longer feel like you're in Carbondale. It's like stepping into a trendy Wicker Park Restaurant w/ out the prices. The food is on a revolving menu but is always top notch. Great place to bring a date. The owner is wonderful! Personal favorites-The duck entree, and their roasted garlic appetizer.

“Food and wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

Great upscale option in Carbondale. Excellent food, appetizers, wine. Little pricier than other places in the area, but well worth it.
