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....More

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.

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.

It may be the best restaurant -and most delightful interior space for dining- in Carbondale, however to be first class it still has ways to go. The bar, wine rack, lighting and color scheme are very nice; the service (by mostly female students) lacks in...More

Fresh ingredients, carefully prepared, result in enticing flavors at this cozy Carbondale bistro. The excellent service started with a warm greeting at the door, and continued throughout the meal. While the menu is limited, it is both interesting and well rounded. Outstanding small wine list,...More
