Perfect place to have a dinner meeting. Noise is low for good conversation and the food and service were great.

Great food. Shrimp starter
Great food. Shrimp starter and scallop entree were delicious. Fish special was great also. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. The chef/owner greeted us after dinner and was very gracious. Only issue is the location: should consider moving to a more vibrant location and out of that stale/sterile business park.

Food was overall excellent, good use of fresh crabmeat. Place is almost empty though, even on a Saturday night, feels awkward.

Sophisticated food, simple flavors but a little pricey. Great for special occassions and date night for sure! Kuddos to the chef!

Nice place in an office park
Nice find tucked away in an office park. Interesting menu w/some unusual touches. Well executed dishes w/good presentation. Attentive & helpful service. It was half empty on a Saturday night; the location is so hidden there is no way to see it from the street. Hope it stays open.

Service & food were both outstanding. We both got dishes we don't normally eat & that you can't get at other restaurants. Highly reccomend Global!

The food was awesome and the
The food was awesome and the ambiance was nice. Minor complaints - food took a little long to get to table but was well worth the wait. Tables were slightly too long for the handholding we like to do. Didn't care for the veggies paired with my fish but the fish itself was exceptionally delicious. The owner was entirely wonderful and gracious and greeted you before exit, always a nice touch. Other than my veggies, the food was exceptional, my fish perfect and the creme brulee same, and it was a pleasant, romantic spot. The olives in my dish popped with a flavor I had not experienced before - it was awesome. Can't say enough about the fish, will definitely go back.

Wonderful Fathers Day treat!
I found this restaurant on Living Social and decided to take my husband here to surprise him for Father's Day. Our experience was wonderful. Our waitor was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was fantastic. We had the beef tartar, the she crab soup, the diver scallops, the lamb, and finished with the trio of creme brûlée. I have no complaints! The chef even came to the table to introduce himself and check to see if we were pleased. We will be back!

Amazing food and service
Amazing service. The place was set amongst corporate buildings so it was a little challenge to find however we are so glad that we did ! We recommend this place to everyone. Not a huge place however the atmosphere and décor are very inviting. The service was impeccable. The food was delicious. My husband had the scallops - very well prepared - and I had the organic spring mix salad - with the apple vinaigrette dressing. Very good. They switched the goat cheese for me and gave me bleu cheese. I had the NY strip steak and the cabernet bleu cheese sauce was to die for !
Definitely a hidden gem !

Fine Dining in Ballantyne
Chef/owner Bernard is truly creative, and we cannot speak too highly of our dinners recently at Global. I personally can vouch for the beef tartare starter and monkfish entrée (which was a special that evening). My wife also raved about the squash agnolotti with shrimp. Our server Michael was ever-present without being intrusive and was extremely knowledgeable about all of the preparations.

Great $30 Restaurant Week Outting
Very satisfied with the menu for the Charlotte Restaurant Week end special menu. Great service. Well worth the cost. Made a great night out with friends.

The pork tenderloin was perfect.
This is the best restaurant I have eaten at in a long time. Everything was cooked to perfection. The ingredients are fresh and flavorful. The chef’s knowledge of flavor combinations is outstanding. The pork tenderloin is to die for. I did not know pork could taste so good and be so tender.

Great to be back
We had dined at Global several years ago and were delighted to see it as an option for Charlotte Restaurant Week. CRW menu was wonderful, great choices. What impresses me most about Global is that each and every dish is a food you might have had before, but Global does something new with it, or pairs it with a new flavor or ingredient that makes it delicious in a new way. The chef was kind enough to come out and speak to us, which is always a pleasure and a privilege. I think Global is an unusually inventive eating experience for the Charlotte area. Out waiter Chris explained each dish so that we knew how it was prepared and what was unique about each one. Excellent service, outstanding food. We will be back soon.

Excellent customer service
We wanted to order a cocktail that we had heard of on a cooking show. They looked up how to mix it because they didn't know. When it came to the table it wasn't quite right, so they played with adding other things until it met our satisfaction. Delightful service!

Outstanding food; over-priced wines
We had not been to Global for several years (Charlotte has so many good locally owned restaurants). The salads and main courses we ordered were absolutely outstanding, certainly up with the best this city has to offer. The set up of the tables was not conducive to quiet conversation, but this could be because there was a large party there that night. It just seemed a little cold and loud. The chef came out to talk with us which is something we always appreciate and shows the diner that he really cares about the dining experience and quality of food. We do, however, enjoy a glass or two of wine with our meals, and the wine seemed overpriced compared to many of the other locally owned restaurants we frequent. Can't beat the food though!

great quiet night with my wife
outside of the restaurant being in a business district, all else was fantastic. just not much of a view.
highly recommend for the food.

Would recommend this restaurant for food and service. Was not as intimate as I had hoped but acceptable. Would definitely return

Excellent dining experience. I wish Global were in a little less isolated area.

Global a hidden treasure
Global is a hidden neighborhood treasure in Torrington place. The food and service is outstanding. It is quiet and romantic. The wine offering is extensive with varied price range. The server made an excellent recommendation with our dinner. We like the special 3 course menu pricing with wine.

Personal attention from the Chef, and great food. We will come back. Slightly out of the way location, but worth it.

An explosive awakening
Wonderful and informed staff, the food was just delightful with a beautiful presentation, clean, fresh ambience, yet even on the mostly dinner filled restaurant their was an air of calm, very romantic if desired.

Top of the list for South Charlotte
It doesn't get much better than this! The dinner options taste as great as they look. The wait staff is the best, taking care and making appropriate suggestions for food and wine. The chef visits personally to make sure you are taken care of properly. It's a place you should go more frequently, but it is such a special treat when you do go.
