There is something for everyone within the beautiful space at Globe Bistro. In the front wine bar diners may choose to have a glass of Ontario wine while grazing on our bistro menu or enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail.

As you move towards the main dining room, the open kitchen sets the stage for classically prepared dishes incorporating local ingredients with a creative global palette. Our Chef uses the best quality fresh ingredients that are seasonally available.

Into the main dining room, you will be seated in spectacular dining space with vaulted ceilings. Knowledgeable wine aficionados and the uninitiated both thrive in the selection from our wine cellar including a dozen wines by the glass. Friendly, professional service will delight all of our diners.

Our private dining room on the second level offers a customized experience to please any group or function with seating capacity of over fifty.

Food was hit and miss. Starters (green salad, scallops) were decent, for what there was of it. Very little value considering salad was simply green leaf lettuce and scallops were 3 mini pieces... good flavour though. Mains were better - cod was excellent, barbecue plate was tasty though a misnomer as it was deep fried wings, pan fried sausage and smoked pork.

Server was obviously new to the industry and it reflected in his service.

Overall poor value, wouldn’t return.

Great service and very tasty and interesting food choices. Portions not large. Patio is the best choice but other parts looked good too.

Fantastic patio! Beautiful summer evening, will definitely be back for a drink if not for another meal. Food was nice, but the setting was perfect for a breezy evening.

We enjoyed dinner & cocktails al fresco @ Globe Bistro’s rooftop patio - what a lovely spot! An oasis in the city - and a delicious meal. We loved the birthday cake ice cream sandwich for dessert!

Hadn’t been for lunch before, only dinner. Lunch was perfect! We are so lucky to have the Globe Bistro in our neighbourhood! We had the Chef’s plate which was pork loin and we paired it with the Malivoire Pinot Gris. We sat at the front of the restaurant and people watched, the front windows were open, it was a delightful Friday lunch.

Checked out Globe Bistro for Summerlicious 2019. The service was fantastic, as staff were very attentive and kind. For apps we had the elk tartare, which was tasty and the shrimp fritters, which were also tasty but a bit on the oily side. The steak was a bit small and cooked medium-rare, although it was a bit dry. The cajun chicken legs were tasty, a bit fatty though and we didn't really enjoy the grits. Dessert was probably the weakest of the three courses. Not sure what the regular food items are like, but for Summerlicious it was all quite mediocre.

It's a bit pricy for what you get. There was only 11 server waiting on the tables for the whole patio level so at times you have to wait for service.

Love this neighbourhood gem. Staff are always welcoming and attentive. Love supporting a local business that supports other local businesses. Also fully accessible washrooms on main floor which is difficult to find.

Sat at a dirty table for 30 minutes. It took an hour and 45 minutes to get a dinner that was wrong and then an uncooked one as the fix. Terrible.

Server was great!
Our waitress told me that the burger was decedent and she was bang on, OMG !!! delish !!
All apps were fabulous as well (Cauliflower and Oysters) and Oysters were part of Happy Hour and ha;f price !
The Cod was also well worth it, and it was hard to choose an entree because a few others looked great as well. Would love to go back and try.
Sat in the front area but took a peek at the back, very cool and comfortable looking.
All and all, a great dining experience

Great atmosphere, with friendly service. IMO drink service could have been quicker, I would have been more inclined to stay if it had. Music on the patio could have been much louder, I don’t like hearing other people’s conversations, nor do I like them to hear mine. Food was great aside from the server not taking temperature for my Duck Breast, which I would have preferred to be cooked longer. Also the bottom of the tables on the patio are filthy, watch your knees!!

Overall we had a good time.

The food was delicious and the server was very friendly and knowledgeable. Walking three flights to the rooftop cafe was bit a bit dark, but once there, it was lovely and quiet. An excellent brunch and outstanding value.

Service was very good until the dessert. We ended up waiting 20 min for it and then when it came, it wasn’t very good. It was supposed to be some sort of cheesecake but it tasted like a lump of cream cheese with cream on top and jam purée around it.
Very disappointing as the food here is generally excellent as normally is the service. It appeared as though our server was the only one for the back part of the restaurant.

Our visit was for Mother's Day. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious and my mother loved the ambiance. The hostess was thoughtful to seat us in a quieter area of the restaurant. Bonus.

This was my second visit to the Globe. We had the same excellent server as the previous time.
Food portions were very good, so much so that myself and my guest were too full to order dessert.
Our meal was at 7PM on a Thursday and the restaurant was a lot quieter than on a Saturday night. The ambience was relaxing with the subdued lighting and great eighties music.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you like western European food.

A good restaurant for dinner before a show at the Danforth Music Hall. Friendly and attentive service, comfortable seating and a nice ambience. The food was very good. My husband enjoyed his steak and I really enjoyed the cod. I will definitely return the next time I'm in the area for a show.
