Vegan friendly & great lunches
As a vegan, finding a restaurant that has a great menu, that my meat-eating friends can enjoy and I can enjoy and is very stylish to take clients to is very hard. I will be taking my clients to Glow from now on.
Great fresh menu- lots of terrific selections, always great quality of food, tastes amazing.
Vegan options and the staff are very accommodating for dietary needs like nut allergies and being vegan etc.
The dessert shots are incredible, only 130 calories so you gotta try them!
if it's nice out sit on the patio, the view is terrific and love the comfy seats.
Only comment was the music was too loud, Had to raise my voice to talk.

Excellent Food + Valet Parking
Glow was really great for our family lunch including toddler last week.
Great fresh food with excellent friendly service. Valet parking for $3 (plus $2 tip) very convenient.
Only lost one star in my rating as the noise level is a bit high when the restaurant is busy.
Will definitely make Glow a go-to spot.

A very pleasant lunch with a friend although the dish we ordered (we all ordered the beef stir fry) was interesting but not great. Missed not having the choice to order the tapas at lunch.

Very pleasant wait staff greeted
Very pleasant wait staff greeted us at the door. Seating was perfect, we listened to the jazz festival. A good choice of food. Would have liked more vegetarian dishes to choose from. Food was on time, while not feeling rushed. Great restaurant , would go again.

Wonderful, healthy food!
Would definitely recommend - in addition to the wholesome food the service and ambience is top notch. Price is moderate.

Good food, great appetizers
Went to Glow to enjoy the live music outside the restaurant. We requested a patio seat when we made the reservation but were seated in a booth. Service was very slow; we didn't care because we were able to enjoy the music on the bandstand. We wanted to order a bottle of wine, but the prices were ridiculously high for the quality of the wine. We ordered a pitcher of Sangria, which was $24. However, it had very little fruit, and we could barely taste the liquor.
We had a number of appetizers including the Glow salad, the lobster buns, the lamb chops and the tandoori chicken. They were excellent. One person order the roasted chicken, which was also great. Bread should be served. Don't know why this custom is being eliminated in some places.

Great hot spot for a business lunch
Recently enjoyed lunch with a business partner at Glow and was thoroughly impressed from moment of arrival to the end of the experience. We were greeted immediately and professionally at the door by multiple hosts, quickly directed to seats out on the patio (we were given a choice of patio or interior) and within minutes had a server greet us. As it was quite sunny and hot the staff inquired if we desired to have the umbrella put up for shade which we readily confirmed. Food was great for lunch - I enjoyed the freshly made turkey burger while my colleague enjoyed his chicken club. The sweet potatoes were fantastic. Service was great, atmosphere suitable for business lunch, and prices definitely within reason. Highly recommended.

It was our first time at Glow and we were very impressed with the food, it was great and our waiter Mark was very nice, very knowledgeable but also very fun!! The only negitive points was being ignored by the Hostess when we first walked in and then she served the person who was behind us first. I made a comment about that and she said that the person just approached her. She could have told that person that she would be with him as soon we were looked atter. Also as much as it was great to have the live music just out in the courtyard, we found it kind of loud and disruptive during dinner. But otherwis it was a great experience with wonderful food. We will be back for sure!!!

Overall it was good, I would like to see the place open longer (ie.2am like every other place in the plaza) as we had to make sure we all paid up (large group) and leave to get to another place in the plaza to keep the birthday going. Didn't order food as the reso was later after dinner but they did a great job setting up the table, confirming reservations and getting drinks out.

Service was great...
Been there many times and never disappointed.
Food was delicious... Band was playing!

My son suggested Glow Fresh. We came for Father's Day brunch and we love the choice of food and the restaurant. So we came back for our anniversary. We have a free glass of wine from your lovely wine selection and we enjoyed it very much. My salmon was tasty and my husband's beef strip loin is amazingly tender. We will sure come back.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome dinner experience
We were celebrating a birthday for our elderly aunt. We all loved the food and the wine. Our waiter was awesome, friendly and attentive. Will definitely come back.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Slow service but nice place
We stopped for some wine and small plate- mid afternoon break. We were pleased with the breads and interesting spreads given to us. We waited a long time however for a flat bread appetizer while seeing others who came in after us receive meals and food. Our waiter was serving someone else and I noticed him see us, look surprised and then run to the kitchen to bring us food. I think he had forgotten us. The wine list was excellent and we enjoyed a couple of glasses to taste some different wines. The flatbread was tasty. The décor is quite nice and it's a lovely spot. I would give it another try.

no recommendations on Glow.
no recommendations on Glow. I found the restaurant very noisy - hard to have a conversation.

Our server was very attentive
Our server was very attentive and friendly. Jazz group was good, but a little difficult to talk becasue the music was a little on the loud side. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.

I dine often at Glow. I especially
I dine often at Glow. I especially like the fact that their food is healty - just love the side of mixed vegetables or side of asparagus. The little desserts are to die for - I especially love to dine there for lunch on Monday (wine special) and the dinner special from 4:30 to 6:00 pm.... what a bargain.

Lunch at Glow
My husband and I treated our grandson and his lady just back from Israel for a short spell, and all four of us loved everything about it. I have been there a couple of times before, but what we all loved was the vegitarian dishes, and the wonderful presentation of the desserts.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good early bird value
We dined before 6:00 pm and took advantage of the early bird fixed price option. 3 courses for $15...very good deal.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Would do it again!
Would go again. Would order all the same dishes again. The grilled seafood was delicious and plated so attractively. As a veggie lover, the sides of veggies were plentiful and tasty. The server and bartender were very interested in accommodating me with a drink that they were not familiar with. It was a shame that the weather forced the R&B performance just outside the patio tables to be cancelled. It would have been awesome.

Took our family from out of town to Glow and we all had a lovely dinner. Food and service were very good and the ambiance was perfect.

Great place for friends & family
Picked this restaurant for its patio seating for a warm Sunday brunch. The location did not disappoint. Food was good but not particularly special. Service is top notch.

Ambience makes it
Enjoyed brunch at this lovely restaurant - it was a beautiful day and sat inside beside the open walls. Blissful. Food was good but service was very poor. Fantastic coffee. Live music during brunch was a huge bonus. I would recommend this restaurant and will go back despite service due to its ambience.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Glow is a very nice, beautifully decorated room, with a fantastic patio, that has great sophisticated food with great taste, nice decor, efficient service, at very competitive and appropriate prices. The ambience is fantastic, the people are very friendly, the evening was memorable. I went with my 2 teen age sons, and they loved it. Cheers to a great Restaurant!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food here is delicious, especially love the fresh jam and toasted breads they serve you before your meal. We sat on the patio because the weather was great and the view of the square is nice too.

this was my second time at the restaurant and chose to bring more friends, we all loved it and would gladly come back again. The food, service was great, tasty and so very accomodating to all food types/allergies. Prices great. Fantastic location for other things to do after.

The hostesses honoured our request to have a patio reservation made. We got mostly appetizers, all of which were very good, however note that if you are getting the lobster ravioli, you won't taste much of it if you get a lot of really savoury appetizers beforehand. There was live music in the square on friday night so we got prime seating. Awesome. PS get the bruschetta. So good.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner on the Patio
Always excellent! One of my favorite restaurant's in the city and I love the fact that there is mature staff working there instead of the usual all young staff in many restaurants. I also use Rose Reisman's cookbooks at home all of the time.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have decided to try out this place over the long weekend Saturday for brunch. While the food we ordered are very good with the fresh ingredient Glow has been emphasized, the most impressive was the service. Not only our servers were so patient with a table of 8 (most of us are seniors), he also made sure everything was in proper order and exceeded our expectations. We will definitely come back for dinner ;-)
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
An exceptional night out
The decor is very fresh and modern. The staff are very professional and know the menu very well. Lots of dishes with fantastic tastes and healthy choices. The portions were just right.

Great food for good value
$15.00 for an early three course dinner cannot be beat! Great service as well for a Group of seven. Thank You!,

Fantastic Sunday Brunch
I've been going to Glow for their Sunday brunch lately, and it is absolutely fantastic! Good live jazz from the bar, attentive servers and great fresh ideas from the kitchen! Try the Eggs Salmon Benedict, Steak or Lamb sandwich (super yummy), or the Smoked Salmon flat-bread - superb! Pair it up with a great beer or wine and you're sorted!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great local lunch or dinner spot
I have dined at Glow three times in the last month, twice for dinner and once for lunch. Great experiences each time. First time was for an early dinner, the service was great, noise level low, food was fine. Second time the reservation was for 7pm on jazz night. Food, service and music were excellent and the four of us were still able to enjoy a conversation without having to yell.
I tried Glow for lunch this week and the food was very good and the service was attentive without interrupting our conversation.
Definitely a restaurant I would use on a regular basis.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just go! For any occasion, any meal. My kids love the kids menu too - even my 14 year old.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Delicious food and great service. Great for special occasions or just to have a nice outing. I highly recommend this place

I took my friend for brunch for her birthday, staff was fabulous, food? foodies unite. This is the place to be. My moms' last birthday was held at Glow, she loved it.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
First time for brunch and we loved it! The jazz band had cancelled but we didn't mind - I think it may have been too noisy to hear them anyways.
11/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ambience and Food are great!
I enjoyed the experience at Glow. The food was wonderful and the staff were very friendly. I especially love their sweet potato soup and their fresh salads! I definitely would recommend having work meeting there again. Plus they accommodated a new seating area for our group to fit one person who is pregnant.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have been to Glow a number
I have been to Glow a number of times. The food is always good. It's a great place for a ladies lunch. Good healthy and lighter options. The service was good until it was time for the bill. We couldn't find our waitress when we wanted to leave.
Other than that everything else was fine.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
I love dining at Glow. The food is healthy, and as a person that works out religiously. I watch what I eat. I find Glow's food excellent. Love the juice ..beet with ginger. Will recommend to anyone.

Great Lunch Spot
Really enjoy special lunches here, be warned the servings are large, we only had appetizers but could hardly finish them.

Service was a little slow this time....been here for dinner and service was fantastic. Food is ALWAYS fantastic! A definite hot spot!

You should go!
Great restaurant! Met a friend there for lunch. We both had the Santa Fe Super Bowl, delicious!! We talked and talked and didn't feel rushed. Service and food both great. I'm going back in a couple days to treat a friend to a birthday dinner. One of the best places in the neighbourhood.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food but noisy
I enjoyed the food and excellent service but very busy so very noisy when I was there. A large table next to us with about 20 people so made it difficult to carry on a conversation.
