Tender steaks feature top sirloin and filet migon. Seafood is popular for baked crusted cod, fish ‘n' chips and gourmet lobster mac ‘n' cheese. Entrées include stir-fry and beef lasagna. Mini-desert and chocolate cake are the popular dessert options at Global.
I love the Beef Dip here. It is really good - as in one of the best around. The au jus is more of a thicker gravy, which I prefer since I dip my fries in it. The fries are nice and crispy with just a hint of seasoning on them.
Global is great for a quick bite, has a decent variety of food (including Lobster Mac and Cheese, who would have thought?). Service is quick. Private Business conversations can be had depending on where you are sitting.
The service was wonderful. The servers were very polite and attentive.
The restaurant is in the basement. The room felt very cold and institutional. Very bland Decor although this doesn't matter to most but if you're looking for a romantic or even a fun place, this isn't it.
I would compare it to a hospital cafeteria including the food. I hate the chicken burger which was extremely salty and the ceasar salad. My friend had the stir fry. She said he's ok "ok"
I had high hopes for this place as I had previously heard great reviews. I walked away very disappointed.
Third time I have been there in 2 months. Food again was great but restaurant was busier this time which create service decline. It took quite some time before the server would take our order. I asked a couple of people for our server before she came over. Having said that we were in and out in good time. Food was great as usual.
