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.

Our hotel staff recommended this restaurant as a great place to get dressed up and have a master chef prepare a fantastic meal for us. My husband enjoyed the St. Lucia seafood dinner. My tastebuds delighted in the pan fried veal cutlets. Our desserts were amazing and it was a meal we'll never forget. Our servers were excellent and attentive!!

We had a reservation for our anniversary and they made our night very special! The chef altered one of the specials just for us since neither of us could do curry. It was fantastic! The cocktails were very tasty and the service was outstanding! Very knowledgeable wait staff and so accommodating. I recommend this restaurant to anyone for any occasion.

This is an up scale fine dining establishment. The tables are small but the atmosphere is intimate. The meals were very delicious prepared by an outstanding master chef. He makes everything himself from the bread to the ice cream. Service is outstanding and they insure that you have just what you wanted. Unfortunately it is closing permanently on December 31th...

Whenever we visit Galena, we make Perry Street Brasserie a must visit. The chef does an amazing job putting foods together that you just don't think would work. We are never disappointed in a meal. This visit was no exception. The downfall was service. It started out to be spectacular, from the woman who brought water and would later bring... More

My husband and I tried to come here without reservations on our 15 year anniversary but it was booked. We came a day later. The dinner we had here was memorable. Special. The atmosphere was unique. The waitstaff was wonderful. The owner was friendly. Good luck with your retirement! Hope this place can continue.

Thank Felicia O
