A metropolitan place in Carbondale's historic district! Global Gourmet offers well-prepared meals by Chef Andrea. Small plates are a great choice for the after work/happy hour crowd. Meals are always well priced and yummy. Yes, the portions are smaller than your local franchise offers....BUT....they are the appropriate portion sizes we should be enjoying! Just the right amount, no need to take home a "doggie bag." Now.....Andrea also does a sensational job of offering a wine list of affordable, yet yummy choices! What can I say? I love this joint!

Nestled in the heart pf downtown Carbondale, GG has great potential that has failed to meet expectations. The food is indeed gourmet in comparison to other locales however it is overpriced and lacking in portion. We enjoy going for cocktails on the back patio however we often are left to self-serve as the young college aged lady servers often over look empty glasses. Good every now and then but definitely not a regular hang out.

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.

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.
