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 pants who looked like she was about to lead a zumba class. We were seated and given menus which consisted of two crumpled pieces of paper on an ancient clipboard,
As we waited for our food classic rock played loudly in the backround and the waitstaff talked/cursed loudly amongst themselves as the restaurant was largely empty.
Surprisingly, the food was actually excellent and on par with other high end restaurants.
Sadly, the atmosphere greatly took away from the enjoyment of the meal. It seems like this place needs to decide what it wants to be,
My husband thanked our waitress (who was very good and attentive) and signed the check with an old busted up pen.

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.
