Diner Reviews
  • "Very quiet restaurant with a good variety of food."

  • "As always, Global delivers delicious food and wonderful service."

  • "My lettuce wraps were very good, although from the menu description I thought I was getting a salad...? The ambiance definitely is lack lustre as there appears to be no color palate in the decorating. In the basement of the hotel, much more could be done to make it more welcoming and appealing. When you come down the stairs there is no proper entry way, you're just walking straight into the seating area."

  • "Global was everything that you'd expect a restaurant in a hotel sub-basement to be. It was dingy, drafty, and just kind of.....weird. (Any time a Coca Cola fridge is out in the open and visible to customers, you know you're doomed.) The Valentine's menu offered a strange choice of appetizers (an oyster or tuna) -- it would have been nice to have something a little more accessible (how about a little charcuterie platter to share? Ginger Calamari? Mediterranean dips and pita?) The steak for the main course was actually nicely done (the other choice was pasta -- with fish skin?), but the Creme Brulee for dessert (despite having Calvados in it) was gutless. The servers seemed friendly enough; there was just nothing memorable to bring us back."

  • "Recently renovated, reasonable prices, good fast service and good food. I have been going there over 20 years and it is pretty consistent. The lounge is great too."

  • "Was nicely redone - but not quite the same ambiance as before - seems more cafeteria-like than café. Obviously not a place where people drink wine with lunch as they had to go find a menu and there was a small selection of low cost wines. As always though, the service was prompt and friendly and the vindaloo was fabulous!"

  • "We have had many many lunches at this restaurant. The food is always very good and the servers are warm and welcoming and attentive. The renovations after the flood are superb, giving an open updated look. The only bad thing we could say is that it is noisy from all the chat at the tables."

  • "I have been going to this restaurant for several years now. It is a hidden gem in the bottom floor of the International Hotel. It has recently been renovated and has a nice, modern vibe. The service is exceptional and the food is great. If you are looking for a spot downtown to have a fairly sit-down lunch but make it back to work within the hour - this is a great option. The food is wonderfully consistent and the staff are very friendly. I recommend the taco salad. I hear that breakfast/brunch is also great here."

  • "This restaurant was noisy before the renovation and now seems even more so. The booths used to provide some semblance of privacy. The food is still good as is the service but don't go for an intimate dining experience."
