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...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.

While the menu is limited, it is both interesting and well rounded. Outstanding small wine list,...More

The meals were a bit pricey, but when you order the short meals versions from the list of appetizers, you can get a good varity for two people.

This is a local gem with limited space. Plan ahead and get a reservation. Nice wine selection. Interesting small plates, soups, salads and large plates. Servers are engaging and the entire dining experience is a treat.

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday. We enjoyed an awesome appetizer, entrees and drinks in the back outdoor area. They have a huge drink menu with old fashioned cocktails. Always a lot of fun, even if you're just stopping in for a late-night...More
