My husband and I visited Global Gourmet for our weekly date night. We are travelling the country and are blessed to be able to visit many different establishments as we go. I must say I have never seen a restaurant quite like this one. When we walked in we were greeted by a lady in a halter top and yoga... More

It's a challenge to set expectations for a restaurant in a small town when you're from the city and have so many selections. I would say for Carbondale it is above average. The service was a bit slow and though we were there early in the evening they were already out of steaks. Other than that the experience was good.

Top quality food served at a pace were you can enjoy the taste as well as the company you keep. Service great. Price $110 for 2, 3 courses plus 4 glasses of wine. Steak perfectly cooked. Duck tender and tasty. Not my first or last visit

The music usually available on Tuesday and weekends adds a lot to the good food you find here. The wild Alaskan salmon was cooked perfectly as ordered. They have many specialty drinks and the starter this night was meat balls in sesame seeds, very tasty. We had many different items; everyone liked.

They portions were adequate and not out of line with comparable restaurants. We visited with the owner and our server, Nikki, was excellent. She very pleasant and attentive. If you are used to fast food and sports bars, this is not the place for you.

Global has a great vibe. A fine place to see people and be seen. The food is excellent. The wine choices are good and affordable. A fun time.

While the food is passable and the drink selection is large it falls short in several areas where a fine dining establishment should not. It is not very clean, it is small and cramped. The service is slow. If they get something wrong don't expect an apology or for them to fix the issue. Menu is very limited and food... More

Food is below average with minimal portions and lukewarm on arrival. Service is extremely slow. Dress code is rustic (wear your jeans and flannel shirts). Ambiance is non-existent.

I have eaten here often, the food ranging from good to excellent. However, I would rather like to recommend this place for its selection of wines and liquors. Global surpasses all other restaurants in Carbondale for their selection of excellent wines by the glass.

We dined at the Global Gourmet on October 16, 2015 with our son and his friends, 5 in all. We arrive promptly at our reservation time and we were seated immediately. Drinks came quickly and then the appetizers arrived after a short wait. Everything was great up until that time. After awhile, we asked our waitress several times where our... More
