Diner Reviews
  • "Extensive menu with innovative and delicious food. Staff is friendly, helpful and efficient. Outdoor patio on roof is delightful. Cost is fair given the value of the experience."

  • "Came here on a visit to Toronto. We sat on the roof-top patio, which does have a little bit of a bar atmosphere. Although the dining room looked nice, we decided to enjoy the beautiful weather. I had a delicious gazpacho soup which was very unique. My main dish was a perfectly prepared elk loin, with an interesting sauce. My daughter really enjoyed her trout. We finished the meal with a couple of excellent desserts. The wine list is all or almost all from the Niagara region. We tasted a lot of wines and were very impressed with most of them. It was a busy night and had multiple servers helping us. All were hustling, but extremely helpful and friendly. Easy access from Broadview subway station. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Discovered Globe on Open Table when looking for somewhere for our anniversary dinner. Summerlicious was on so their regular menu wasn't available. Totally didn't matter! We had the elk sausage and bean salad apps, fried chicken and trout mains and shortcake and chocolate ice cream cake ... everything was delicious! Our one issue was the drink I ordered (strawberry lime spritzer) wasn't mixed well and was undrinkable ... our server personally remixed it and it was perfect. Really appreciated that because you never know how things will go after you complain. We sat on the rooftop patio which was great, but look forward to going back another time for dinner indoors as the inside is really beautiful too. Definitely worth checking out!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Of the restaurants I've been to this Summerlicious, Globe is the best. There aren't many others worth coming to on the East end, but even if you don't live over here definitely check it out. Portions were really good and the food was outstanding."

  • "My first time at Globe but it won't be my last. Really loved the food, great server, and interesting options on the menu."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Usually love this restaurant, but the summerlicious menu was just ok. Both the red pepper gazpacho soup and the sausage appetizer were very good. The fish entrée was on the bland side but ok, but not up to their usual standards. Dessert was disappointing - both the peach and strawberry desserts were very light on fruit and presentation was poor. On the plus side, wine on Sunday is half price so the cost is just slightly above LCBO prices, a good time to splurge on a better bottle. Had to tell the manager to fix both soap dispensers in the bathroom. That shouldn't happen in a restaurant of this caliber. The roof top patio is lovely."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We were greeted as soon as we walked in and were given a choice of sitting locations. Glad we took the rooftop patio. Had the Summerlicious menu. Food was great as was the service. We were going to a show at the Danforth Music Hall so the location was perfect. Would like to go back again."

  • "We were very happy with the food and the service. We had a little concern as our fish was drier than it should have been and the lady who helped s was most apologetic and also offered the deserts to compensate which was greatly appreciated but also very professional. Thank you"

  • "I really like Globe! This was my second time there. I've lived in the area for almost five years and wanted to go since I moved in but only got around to it last fall for the first time. I liked it so much I went back again. The weekend brunch is just delicious! My guest and I ate a ridiculous amount of pork. It was pretty amazing. The coat check is a nice touch when you arrive. The service both times I've been there has been excellent and the server really knowledgeable. I definitely will be going back! I can't wait to try more items on their menu."

  • "We enjoyed a 6 course tasting menu. Some of the highlights were parsley "earth" garnish on a marrow bone, in house smoked pears in a salad, veal cheek, and praline. All tiny courses but we were stuffed. The Globe Bistro is a new favourite for us now."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "We had a six course tasting menu - using the same utensil (not classy at all, I can do better at home). It took us 3 1/2 hours as we have to wait for about 20-30mins between courses. Even at the end, we have to wait for 15-20 mins for dessert as there were only two tables left. Overall experience is too long for a dinner."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "The 6 courses turned out to be more like 9 with all the small in between dishes to cleanse the pallets. It was a wonderful surprise tasting what the chef decided was the menu. It opened all your taste buds and the four of us would recommend it as one of the best meals we have eaten out together. The restaurant was even able to accomodate allergy restrictions. If they have this again - we will be back but this time to try the upstairs deck outside. There was so much food and such a great variety. 5 STARS to the chef and his serving team who took the time to explain every dish as it was served."

  • "We took our daughter's parents for dinner and our first meeting and the fish was served undercooked, cool and flavourless. Too bad, we were looking forward to a nice meal."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Toronto's Danforth area is not famous for great restaurants so my dining experience here greatly exceeded my expectations. The food and service were top notch and the wine list here ranks among the finest in the city."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "This was a Winterlicious dinning experience and therefore my criticism may not be the best representation of the restaurants abilities. The highlights of the experience were the friendly hostesses and the inviting décor. The back dinning room was large and open, but still seemingly intimate. The food was good and I was very pleased with the three dishes I was served. My date was pleased with the exception of her lemon cake dessert, which she found dull. The problem however, was the wait time on our food. From our appetizers to our entrées the wait time was over 40 minutes. The only explanation given was that "things must be backed up in the kitchen" as we were provided more bread. The wait times made it a disappointing experience."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "the food was fantastic, everything is so well taken care of. You can really tell the chef put in a lot of thoughts and parings with all of his ingredients. The ambience was nice and quiet, a romantic get a way. My food partner was creep out by the modern art in the restaurant. I personally find it intriguing. Go if you like a place to enjoy great food and carry a private conversation."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "We were there on a Sunday evening during Winterlicious. While the menu was somewhat limited, each of the 3 of us enjoyed our dishes. The haddock croguette was a delicious appetizer and the main dishes were tasty and nicely presented. A special feature of half-price wines on Sundays was very welcome."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "From the ambiance, to service to food, everything about the dining experience at Globe Bistro is sure to please. The servers are professional and knowledgeable. Service was attentive and three course meal was pleasing. We had Sunday brunch--the portions could have been a bit larger, but it was brunch. The just baked bread was a delight and we asked for more. Even the green tea with a hint of pear was memorable. It is a locale that I will surely return to."

  • "We were 30 min late for a Winterlicious reservation and they graciously still offered us a seat."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We had a 1:30pm reservation on a Saturday and they were running behind. It was Winterlicious so that is understandable. The host offered us tea/coffee at the bar while we waited. A very nice touch."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Visited the Globe Bistro for Winterlicious. This was not our first visit to the Bistro. Had the Kale Caesar Salad while my friends had the Smoked Haddock Crostini (?). Both very tasty. For entree, the Mushroom Tagliatelli and Braised Lamb Shoulder was extremely tasty - but portions a little small. To end of the meal, we had the lemon chiffon cake, dutch specullant cake and chocolate pudding. Presentation was good, but tlemon chiffon cake was the best. Service was very good and attentive, but being one of the first guests to arrive for brunch, the restaurant was a bit cold, so it took awhile to warm up on a cold day. Would recommend this restaurant for foodies."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "In my experience, restaurants that promote the fact that they use local ingredients doesn't necessarily mean that the food is good. Globe bistro "Think global - eat local" has got the idea to perfection. All food is locally sourced and so deliciously prepared. I have tried their six course tasters menu (phenomenal) as well as Winterlicious, Brunch and a regular Friday night. Go and try this gem on the danforth. You will not be disappointed. And if you remember....during desert as for some of their honey (they have honeycombs on the roof of their restaurant and local farmers take care of them)! Unbelievable!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Treated my friend to dinner at Globe Bistro to celebrate her birthday last Friday evening. We took advantage of the Winterlicious offerings. Our meals were unique and prepared to perfection. I have also been there for Sunday Brunch - yet another excellent experience. So glad to have this restaurant in the neighbourhood!"

  • "Apps: Kale salad and duck liver parfait Salad was a little too overdressed to my liking, but the parfait was amazing! Entrees: Lamb and Trout Lamb was cooked to perfection, however the portions were a little too small for my liking. I had larger portions at other places such as Sassafraz, with similar pricing. The trout was nice and flaky with a crisp skin. Impressed! Dessert: Cheese plate and Chiffon cake Cheese plate was interesting, but not that memorable. Cake was okay. Creme fraiche was great, but seemed to drown out the cake a little. The cake tasted as if it was bought from a grocery store."

  • "I visited last Friday and enjoyed the ambiance, food selection, the fact you could do a tasting menu if you desired. Enjoyed the lobster gnocchi, beet salad, cod and crab dish, as well as the cannelloni. I booked the table through open table and had a terrific spot picked for us. Would highly recommend them!"

  • "We took some friends to globe for New Years Eve. It's a personal favourite restaurant, but didn't quite deliver for New Year's Eve... It was totally packed, and there was live jazz... Great vibe for New Years, after one grows out of the party scene. The food was very good, but a few dishes weren't quite hot enough... Our starter soup was barely luke-warm... Tasty, but would have been better a bit hotter. The big complaint of the night was the pace of the meal - we waited an hour between the second and third course... The server recognized the issue, and kept assuring us it wouldn't be long. In the end, he comp'd some wine, which was kind of him. All in all, we had a nice night... It just fell a little short of my previous experiences."

  • "I'd heard about the brunch at Globe Bistro for years and decided to try it out with friends who were in town from Vancouver. Service was excellent. Our server was attentive, polite and took excellent care of us. The omelettes were delicious as well as the Eggs Benny. Will highly recommend to my friends and family!"
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "It has been a while since I have been back to the Globe and my recent visit made me wonder why I had waited so long to return. After sharing the charcuterie plate my friend and I enjoyed perfectly cooked halibut on a bed of excellent risotto. For dessert we had a whipped goat cheese "cheesecake" that was delicious. As always, the service was great - attentive and friendly without being overbearing or intrusive."

  • "This was a birthday dinner for my husband. We both had scallops to start, and surf & turf for mains. One of my favourite meals I've had there! Love the new menu choices! We still keep hoping they will bring back the flourless Belgian chocolate cake. Our server was amazing! She was fun, helpful and definitely went above and beyond! Thanks to her hot water trick, by hands were warmed from the cold outside in no time! We will be back!"

  • "Went for brunch, was expecting "slabs" of pork belly in my eggs benny, but got shards. The bread basket was good. My partners fries were undercooked. OUR WAITER WAS TERRIBLE. We both finished our first drinks, and the server came over said "would you like me to take those?" took them before answering, and walked away. We kept trying to make eye contact with him, and he seemed to be avoiding us. I finally flagged him down and asked for another drink, and he sped off before asking my partner if he wanted one too. So we had to wait again. The blonde waiter with a South African or similar sounding accent was VERY friendly, helpful, and apologetic for our waits. But our table waiter was the pits."
