We celebrated my husband's birthday here. Great attentive staff, gluten free options, very accommodating. Will definitely return here when in Galena again.

Food was great, needs to up the liquor game!

Dined on February 28, 2016

Went to dinner for our anniversary, my husband had the duck and I had the stuffed pork loin. Both entrees were very well made and we'd definitely eat here again, but both our cocktails were very weak. we finished them early on in the meal yet our server never came by to ask if we needed another. The restaurant wasn't terribly busy at the time either. They stand to sell more drinks if the waiters stay on top of them!

Special night out.

Dined on February 14, 2016

Made a reservation for dinner on Valentine's day for 6:30 PM. When we arrived the restaurant was very busy but we were seated right away in the up stairs room. Service was attentive even though it was an extremely busy evening. By the time we got there many of the specials were already sold out. I had the pan seared Trout special which was OK but seemed a little over cooked and dry. It could of used some kind of sauce instead of a relish garnish. A couple of bites tasted a little fishy, but not every one. I have been there before and had the Beef Stroganoff and thought it was great. And a special note, I think the prices are the most reasonable in town. All in all I would return again but I wouldn't order the Trout.

Dined on February 13, 2016

The whole experience was fantastic! The food was delicious, the server was friendly and helpful, the amount of food locally sourced was very impressive, and the restaurant itself was beautiful. I have a very restricted diet and the server was very knowledgeable about the ingredients and how the food was prepared. This is one of the very few restaurants I've felt comfortable eating at since I changed my diet two years ago.

Been to this restaurant about 5 times....

Dined on February 7, 2016

And every time the food is mediocre at best. Service, wine, place is nice, but the food never quite lives up to expectations. We were celebrating a milestone anniversary, so a bit of a disappointment. Was looking forward to the garlic mashed potatoes, and it was more of garlic mashed cheese. We did order one of the more expensive steak and shrimp entre's. Husband didn't find many shrimp buried in this cheese either.

We pulled this restaurant basically out of a hat after reading some reviews. This place did not disappoint. We had a reservation and were seated fairly quickly. Wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. Not the most romantic place but a nice atmosphere with really good food. We had a great time.

Great little restaurant in Galena, IL

Dined on January 24, 2016

My wife and I enjoyed a nice dinner at One-Eleven this past weekend, and it was very good. Food was well prepared, and the ambience was nice. Service was okay in spite of the fact that the bartender had to both tend bar and serve diners in the bar. (Short of staff?) However, Adam did get great...in spite of it all.

Good service, Food so-so

Dined on January 17, 2016

We selected One Eleven for the farm-to-table menu and based on overall ratings on the web. Our waiter William was great - friendly but professional and knowledgeable. Most of the table ordered the steak and shrimp - the steak was small and a bit grisly, reminiscent of Applebee's. I ordered the sea bass special - the fish was cooked fine but had limited flavor, despite the chimichurri sauce and was served over mexican rice which lacked in flavor. Dessert was ok. We'd heard that this restaurant was one of the best but is spotty, so perhaps we hit it on an off night.

A nice meal with the family

Dined on January 2, 2016

The emphasis on local fare has always been a draw for us. The opening bread and butter were very good. The mixed green salad was also very good and a refreshing change from the usual iceberg lettuce. The roast pork special with apple cider sauce was unique and very tasty. I also had the bread pudding for dessert which was also very good. Though I appreciated the vegetable medley with the entree, they were cooler than the rest of the meal. It was probably the significant negative note of our meal.

Excellent Service

Dined on December 4, 2015

We celebrated my husband's birthday and had a fantastic evening. Our server was wonderful, attentive and did not hesitate to replace the dish I had ordered. We kind of had a running bet that my dish would be the best I had ever had. To me, it wasn't. To others it may have been but not my flavor. He gladly replaced it, no questions asked. My only suggestion is to do something special for those diners celebrating birthdays. Everyone likes to feel special at least once a year.

Dined on November 22, 2015

Everything was pretty spectacular. The only complaint I had was that I ordered a steak from a local farm that they had on the menu and it was so tough that my steak knife would not cut through it! The server said it was the fourth complaint of the day on that local beef and suggested I get a different one, which I did and it was delicious! While I can't blame them for the quality of the beef, they should have take it off the menu if they knew they were having quality issues.

Dined on October 31, 2015

While we appreciate getting a large group in and a quiet restaurant for good conversation, this fits that bill because it was really empty on a Friday night. Also, sad that the food doesn't live up to the great location and nice ambiance. Many meals were decent but one had to be returned that stone my husband encountered in the soup was pretty shocking. They addressed it and did remove from the bill but didn't go overboard to apologize. When that happens, the manager should come out instead of making the waiter come back to report.

Not what you'd expect from a "farm-to-table" restaurant. Lackluster waitress and same goes for the good. We ordered the specials: Pork kabob was dry. Curry beef over dry rice? Not so much. If you want great food in Galena go to Otto's.

The most memorable part of my stay was how welcoming you are made to feel by the Manager, Josh. He welcomed us, got us seated and after we were leaving walked us back downstairs. The food was perfect. I had the Gnocchi, very nice! The wood floors and open faced brick makes it that more appealing

111 Main, it was ok

Dined on September 6, 2015

My wife and I went for a Sunday dinner. I can't say that we were blown away but I can't say that it was a bad choice either. We had reservations and were immediately seated at our table after witnessing a group of 3 walk in customers being told that it was at least a 45 minute wait. After a few minutes wait, we had water and menus. Our wait staff experience wasn't bad, but it was also far from memorable. We had to ask about the specials. Our drinks took a few minutes to get, but they were OK, again, not memorable. My wife enjoyed her pulled pork sandwich and my jambalaya was decently prepared and seasoned. We were asked about our food, promptly after a few bites and then were left alone for our meal. We were never asked about drink refills. It was a pretty low key experience overall. Nothing bad, but not really one to inspire us to return either.

One of the most fantastic meals I have had in a long time. Everything was wonderfully prepared and extremely fresh. We both started with salads and homemade dressings which tasted amazing. I had the pork loin and was so happy with my choice. It was tender, juicy and everything on the plate went so well together. My boyfriend had the salmon which was also quite tasty! The sweet potato mash is a must have if you like sweet potatoes. Our server was also friendly, helpful and gave us great advice and recommendations for entrees but also Galena. This is a must go place in Galena!!

Yet another fine meal

Dined on August 7, 2015

I returned again to One Eleven and was once again pleased with our dinner. We had a glass of wine at our hotel so skipped drinks which are always excellent here. I recommend the mojito. I ordered the gnocchi and my friend the salmon. Both were new to us and we enjoyed our meals. We were celebrating birthdays so had desert too. The flourless chocolate cake was excellent. Will return again the next time we are in Galena.

Stay Away!

Dined on July 26, 2015

The night started out bad when the witer took 10 minutes to come to the table. When I ordered off the gluten free menu, I asked the waiter about the shrimp and if it was a good amount of food seeing as we had walked the town all day. My meal came with 6 small shrimp, 1 small stalk of broccoli , and and small amount of potatoes. No salad came with the meal. Before the food came, I asked if we could get the bread that came with the meal and was informed that we could not . It came with the meal. Needless to say, when it came we received 1/4 of a small loaf of bread when cut resulted in a normal size piece and a dry crusty end. After the meal was served, the waiter never came back to refill drinks or ask about the meal. My daughter had asked when she ordered for a side of ranch, which never came and by the time I found the waiter she was finished with her meal. All this for an extremely high price tag. I have no problem paying more for a nice meal, but this was not a nice, adult meal. It was the size of a child's portion.Overall, we both walked out hungry and upset over the terrible meal and ended up at Mc Donalds. What a shame for such a supposedly nice place. We will NEVER go back!

Wonderful Dinner

Dined on July 23, 2015

We booked a table via Opentable a few hours prior to dining and since it was mid week tables were available. Truly a pleasure. Our server Will was courteous and helpful to a fault. We asked to try a sample of one of the wines and were quickly accommodated. Upon ordering a bottle we each ordered dinner as we had looked prior at the menu. The Blackened Catfish was a gem. I know, it's only catfish but when prepared as it was, a large filet along with shrimp, Andouille sausage and perfectly cooked rice it is a meal for all but the pickiest of diners. Among the best I've had in a while. We also tried the Chicken Saltimbucca, prosciutto-wrapped breast which included grits and veggies and wonderful as well. We thoroughly enjoyed this establishment and would love to have chance again. P.S. The bread served before and during dinner was to die for.
