We always enjoy our dinner at Global. Looking forward to dining at their new location in Pineville. Hopefully more people will find them and enjoy their food!

This was our second time at Global. Our first visit, during restaurant week, was wonderful. No complaints about anything. This visit was very different.
The food took about an hour or so to come out of the kitchen, the waiter never visited our table during that time to let us know how things were progressing. Also, we asked for a bread refill 3 times, finally when we were done eating, he delivered our bread.
The food is wonderful, but the service needs a bit or work.

Food was overly salty, service was extremely slow, waiter was lost and out of his element. Multiple shell pieces in crab soup. Dessert was very dry and strange in presentation. We shared our dissatisfaction with experience and chef didn't come out because busy with friends from California. 3 course meal took 3 hours....not a good night. Birthday completely overlooked.

Our pork belly was good - absolutely. The rest? Not good. Scallops were way under and gelatinous. Brisket was way overdone, salty and dry. The signature dessert was like eating air - no flavor and not memorable.

We were celebrating and wanted to try something new. Global was trying to be upscale, but the food and location didn't jive. $160 later...we'll be scheduling a Take 2 for our celebration.

Yes the food is very good and the service excellent, but this restaurant's atmosphere and prices are both entirely too frou-frou for me. Would only go again if someone else was paying :) however I would only allow them to pay if it were a VERY special occasion.

The food was fanatastic, was excellent, unusual touches and wonderful flavors, gourmet food for Charlotte! The service was fantastic, the server knew everything about the food, the preparation in detail, she was very kind and helpful. Service flow was excellent and teh attention we got kind and gentle and not pushy.

We hadn't been to Global since it first opened, there are so many choices in Charlotte. But, we went with a group of friend and all had a great time and good food. Our group had a variety of dishes - the filet, porch chop, chicken, fish - everyone thought the food was very good.

We've been coming to this great restaurant since it opened and still love the food. It is always a sure bet, perfectly prepared and you can not go wrong with any of the items on the menu. They also have nice wines to accompany any dish. The service is always impeccable and consistent.

For the most part, I find that restaurant week menus offer stripped down, low quality, low value versions that are often not even representative of the typical experience that you may have ordering from the standard menu. If that is the case for Global, then the non-restaurant week experience must be just phenomenal as this meal was great. The meal and the service were all top notch.

My wife and I had dinner and it was our first time at Global. Amazing food - especially the pork loin and the shrimp appetizer! Wonderful taste and presentation. The service was a bit slow and sound travels too well in the dining room as a fairly loud group of four nearby made it hard for us to concentrate on our own conversation. However, the restaurant will be a treat for foodies and the prices are pretty reasonable. Great spot and we will go back.

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at a local resort. Quite surprised that, with all of the local options, this came recommended. The only positive was that the restaurant was not crowded and, therefore, good for a business discussion.

Chef Bernard once again has gone above and beyond to tease my palette. Each time I eat there I am treated with excellence. A true master of his craft. He goes far beyond the normal realm of hospitality and delivers exactly what you would expect from a professional. Undoubtedly my favorite place to eat in all of Charlotte.

Everything from the bread, to the appetizers, to the She Crab soup, to the entrees and dessert were incredible. The service was excellent - Brian was very attentive. Chef Bernard came to our table, which was great to see the owner cares enough to spend 2-3 minutes with each table. We are coming back this week- this will be one of go to restaurants. Highly recommend Global to anyone who likes great food at fair prices.

We have dined here before and the food is always superb. The waiter was nice and stopped several times to see how we were enjoying our entrees but never asked about refreshing our beverages. We were the first ones to arrive for the evening and it was not that busy when we left. At one point I had to flag him down to refresh our drinks. He was very nice, we were just surprised he did not notice or ask himself. We have recommended this restaurant to friends and they enjoy it also.

Great experience during Charlotte Restaurant Week. Many choices on the menu, well executed. Special $30 selected wine list - we tried a white wine and a Malbec and both were excellent. Very enthusiastic waiter. Small room on one side of the restaurant, ideal for a small group.
