What a fantastic find! With a table of 9 in a quaint and intimate space, I wasn't sure how it would turn out... The atmosphere was welcoming, the staff friendly and accommodating, and the food was wonderful! We truly enjoyed the mussels, tuna and crab cake appetizers by all. Personally, I ordered the filet with demi-glaze, and an extra thick... More

The food was divine, the service superb, and the chef.??..!! Here's the story: We arrived for our 6:00 p.m. reservation about 10 mins. early and were seated immediately. There was only one other couple in the restaurant, but it was a Tuesday in mid-Sept. so I would not expect it to be crowded. It was my birthday and we had... More

My husband and I enjoyed one of the best dinners we've ever had in our lives at Perry Street Brasserie last week. We had included the fact that we're vegetarians when we made our on-line reservation, and Chef Stephen came out and told us of a special entree he would make for us. We thoroughly enjoyed excellently prepared fresh food... More

I'd thought dinner couldn't be better after eating across the street from there the night before. I was wrong. This was THE best food I've eaten in a long time. First, I was going to order off the regular menu, but the waiter told us (my wife and I) about the specials. I ended up with ostrich filet,and duck sausage.... More

Galena has long been a favorite long weekend spot and the Perry Street Brasserie was always a required stop. The only restaurant anywhere we've eaten at two days in a row. The food was always eclectic, and always excellent.

We made reservations at Perry Street Brasserie based on the recommendations of friends. The food and service lived up to the hype. It was one of the best meals I have ever had! I ordered the chef's special, St. Lucia. The lobster was better than any I have ever had and the sauce was incredible. I'm hoping to return this... More

An absolute must!! Chef Steve's experience and passion come through in his cuisine. From Rye drink special, crab cake appetizer, savory soup and St. Lucia seafood special-- your taste buds will be doing backflips! The drive to Galena is well worth having the best meal of your life!! Make your reservations quickly, chef will be moving on in December.
