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

Visited here for our 15 year anniversary and hands down one of the best meals I've ever eaten. Steak was cooked to perfection and dessert was exquisite

Went to Galena for a weekend getaway with the husband before baby #2 arrives. Had one of the best meals ever - from the salad to the dessert with amazing service. Incredible food!

The best food in Galena. The chef here is great. Don't leave Galena without trying it!! The chocolate cup is to die for. All the deserts are great. Salad was delicious. Entrees are unique with the right amount of flavor.

We had a group of five, one of which was a vegetarian. Everyone had wonderful meal and the service was the best. I had St Lucia special and my husband had the ostrich and sausage special. We had no complaints. A must visit for your next trip to Galena. Reservations are needed.

Go to Perry Street for a comfortable, quiet atmosphere with a friendly staff and a creative, flavorful menu. The wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly, the barstaff can offer refreshing drinks and a good wine list. As for the food, it is so fresh and the flavors just burst in your mouth.

So, let me start by saying...we are "foodies"...This restaurant was recommended by our innkeeper at the Stillman Inn. The food and service were UNBELIEVABLE. We hated to leave !!

Chef Steve prepares specials each nite. We had seafood w/mango curry and lamb with Spanish Sausage. Both entrees were great. Desserts are truly something unique and delicious

We ate here on our last night in Galena, and all we can say is WOW!! The food was really over the top and the depth of flavor can only be rivaled by some of the best restaurants in the world. I literally had the best seafood curry (they called it "St. Lucia") I have ever tasted in a small... More

Excellent meal. The service was great, talked to several of the wait staff during service. Most have been there a while. Appears to be several locals eating here from the conversations with the wait staff and chef. The chef (owner) visited the table during the meal. Small restaurant with quiet dining. The chef prepares much from local ingredients and uses... More
