“We loved this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2009

Great food. Good service. Comfortable atmosphere. Table of 8 seated quickly. Had the best sangria (summer). Liked that they served local food. All of our entrees were delicious. And they sent out a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. The chef even came to our table to see how we liked everything. Can't say enough good things about this place.

“Wonderful meal!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2009

I had read the reviews on this restaurant and a friend of mine had recently been here and highly recommended it so based on this my husband I tried it out. The inviting music from the street was nice and the fact that it was not crowed for a Friday night was also inviting as it seemed very relaxing. We started with the calamari which was very good. I ordered the stuffed pork loin which was wonderful with the blue cheese stuffing. My husband had the coffee rubbed rib eye, which I tasted and it was wonderful as well. Came medium rare just like he ordered. The soup of the day was a creamy broccoli and ham which was a little on the watered down side but still tasty. Their side salad was nice as well and I had the house dressing which was nice as well. We were not rushed and our server was very friendly. Would definitely recommend you try this place.

“One Eleven is a Perfect Ten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2009

We literally stumbled upon One Eleven Main while staying in Galena over a holiday weekend and boy, are we glad that we did. Everything, and we mean everything -- from the helpfulness of our gracious hosts, to the tastefully understated loft-inspired ambience, to the artful black-and-white portraits of local growers and artisans -- was absolutely note-perfect. Oh, and did we mention the FOOD? What an incredible array of imaginative, mouthwatering options -- all made with locally-produced ingredients. Everything from new spins on classic comfort food like mom's meat loaf and mashed potatoes; to amazing vegetarian options that didn't sacrifice a shred of flavor. And who knew how many delicious ways you could dress up humble mac-and-cheese? A wonderful wine and dessert selection rounds out the experience -- and don't forget to peruse the great collection of helpful culinary tools on your way out. A hearty, heartfelt valentine to the local suppliers who make it all possible .. and a true gift to anyone looking for a relaxed, taste-tempting dining experience. One Eleven is Heaven!

“Thoroughly enjoyable evening + good dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2009

I have never felt compelled to write such a review but our experience this evening has been so good that I'd like to share it in the hope it helps future decisions to visit this fine establishment. We are visiting from the UK so maybe this will also encouage others to treck further afield than the bright lights of Chicago.
Our visit was purely as a result of passing by , being enticed by the smooth music + particularly the interesting menu. Not ones for stuffy restaurants, we were delighted when we were seated + made to feel that we were there to enjoy the food + atmosphere. Kathleen - our waitress - was so attentive + well-informed on the menu ; the food was perfectly served - fresh, hot + delicious. We tried the local 'blush' wine- fruity, young but good. My husband wishes me to add that the carrot cake dessert is like no other - he found space for this - I couldn't eat more than a forkful .
If you are in Galena + want to have tasteful, local foods cooked with style + obvious skill do try this restaurant - it's like no other American fare we have come across.
