    The espresso steak, scallops and bread that comes with your dinner is absolutely OUTSTANDING! The best we’ve ever had and we eat at alot of great places! We got seated on the top floor in a room that really lacked the spirit. I recommend asking for the ground floor the get the romantic Tuscany vibe you are looking for. But really happy with the food. We also had the fried green tomatoes, crab cakes, and chili shrimp. It was alright, I do not recommend the shrimp though. For dessert we had the crème brulle and flourless cake. Again, amazing. Highly recommend this place!

    My food was great I had the scallops . but unfortunately my husband's steak wasn't worth the cost. Not cooked correctly it seemed they boiled the steak first then seared it on a grill which resulted in a not tender steak , with just ok flavor. Our experience last yr was much better. Maybe it was just an off night for you . Our server however was amazing n made our dining experience.

    Wasn’t like it used to be. Had reservations and still waited 25 minutes. Waitress was nice and gave us a free desert because the fried green tomatoes were cold. Steaks were good. I just couldn’t understand why they would make us senior citizens walk up two flights of stairs.

    Simply outstanding in every way! My husband and I had not been to FGT since it moved from its country location to downtown Galena and we were very pleasantly surprised by the experience. One of the best meals we've had dining out in a long time. The prime cut of the 6 oz. filet was so tender and perfectly cooked. It was served with delicious shrimp and a garlic mashed potato. My husband loved his seared scallops and risotto. The salads were fresh and perfectly appointed with a better than average raspberry vinaigrette. And the bread! Oh my! Hot from the oven, dusted with parmesan cheese and served with olive oil on the side. Wednesday nights include $4 glasses of wine, a discount of $5. Great value, great atmosphere and scrumptious food! Awesome service by Lexi and her trainee, Kye. Can't wait to go back!
