Our first visit was generally quite good, so we returned. This time, service was slow and inattentive. The delay from order to service was excessive, even after reasonably allowing that each entree is prepared as you wait. And there was only one other party in the room! Food tends to be served warm, but not hot. Cold pasta isn't appealing. It was winter when we visited, and the diniing room was noticeably chilly, so maybe well-warmed food was too much to expect? There were good points: Flavors are wonderful and the wine list is extensive. The menu is diverse and appealing. Cleanliness is A+. Prices are high, and potentially worth it. But after our last visit, well, it will be our last visit. For a premium restaurant, I expect better effort and performance on the details.

Good beer, very good Burgers and Fries. Friendly and fast service. This was our first time there and we will return.

Never had been to Galena before and would only be there for dinner. Opened TripAdvisor on the phone and looked for restaurant ratings. Since my wife had just been to Paris with my daughter, we picked Fritz and Frites. We really enjoyed the meal and the authentic Parisian feel of the room. Though we were early and the only customers, we enjoyed the break on a long day of travel. Fun to see that the chef/owner had trained at College of DuPage near us. Would recommend to all of our friends.

Great German food. Fun to watch street foot traffic while dining. Attentive wait staff. Family groups at nearby tables seemed to be having a wonderful time.
