We arrived and were told that they only had a brunch buffet, and that we couldn’t order off of the menu. An unpleasant surprise.

I went to Glow since I was interested in having the ahi tuna poke bowl. I was disappointed to find out that it was no longer on the menu. Your APP was not up-to-date with respect to the menu changes

We had early dinner before the movies and it wasn't crowded. The food was very satisfying, my husband had a burger, I had a salad. Everything tasted great.

Great location, nice feel, good staff. The turkey burger was a little too dense when compared to what they had before, which was perfect. Maybe it was just that day. Servers are great. Available when you need them. I'd def go again.

My friend and I enjoyed the soup and coffees; however, the Brussels sprout salad was so garlicky that we couldn’t each much of it. Salad might be better if you shred the leaves and tone down the dressing.

Glow is a great spot. The Sunday Brunch was solid and it way less greasy than most places. The only knock would have been the service. It took way too long to get a cup of coffee and for the bill to come.

Had the Asian noodle bowl expecting lots of fresh veggies. Disappointed with soggy mushrooms which looked like canned mushrooms. Way too much hoisin sauce making it a soggy dish

Restaurant is very nice, clen and comfortable seating. Had lunch there, however to add a small piece of chicken to my salad was $8.00 which was very pricey. My friend had the chicken sesame salad and said the chicken was good but the rest of the salad was tasteless and would not order it again.

Slow night as it was between Christmas and New Year's. I find when restaurants are slow waiters make mistakes. Start off with my Guinness in a small cup which is a huge no no. Food was okay nothing fantastic.

I went to Toronto to celebrate my sister's birthday with the family. I made a reservation at this restaurant for 8 people. The girl who was serving us was very impolite, impatient and rude.
She made a mistake in our food and brought my two wrong food to our table. By the time we received the correct dishes, the rest of the group had finished their meal. The quality of the food was not good either. The server said she can offer the two persons with late dishes, coffee and desserts. But, none of us wanted to stay there any longer. We left to go somewhere else for dessert. At the end she informed me that there has been an 18% tip added to my bill. I was really mad because we did not get the service for that. I even asked her if I can change the percentage for the tip.

This restaurant was a good choice for a friends get together lunch. Our server was friendly, attentive and professional. The manager also stopped by to check if all was satisfactory.
The restaurant overlooks a nice courtyard and has big windows with lots of natural light. It could however use a little refresh in décor. The leather seats were old and cracked and didn't give a good first impression.
Our food was tasty and the menu had a lot to offer. We would go back.

We made a reservation for 2 initially and then changed on the day of. No issues with the change. It worked well. Then dinner was efficient and timely as well as tasty. My only point was the price was quite high for volume of good and location.

Disappointing. We were quite excited to try the brussel sprout "caesar" salad. But...the salad was over-bacon'ed and the bacon tasted like bacon bits, not real bacon. We also didn't notice any caesar dressing, just a lot of cheese.

The service was quite poor. The place was extremely busy due to holiday parties, but when they all left there was no excuse for not coming by to see how things were, offer a coffee refill and completely disappearing when we needed the bill. The server had time to chat with a group of employees however for quite some time (we could see them, but nobody came near enough for us to wave someone down).

What a disappointment.

The most outstanding part of our evening was the waitress. She was attentive yet gave us space to visit. I was meeting a friend that I only see once a year so having plenty of time to catch up was most appreciated. The early dine is a good value but outside of that, the menu can be a bit pricey. We both had the salmon & enjoyed it.
I booked our reservation online. Communication was excellent, including a reminder the day of. The only thing I wish was that we had asked for a table with a view of the glorious Christmas tree outside. I'm sure the staff would have accommodated us but once we were settled in, we hesitated to ask.

I absolutely LOVED my first experience at the Glow location I went to. For someone like me who is vegan and has many dietary restrictions due to allergies, it is always a hassle to have to bring it up with the servers at other restaurants, and even though they do try to be attentive to it, Glow is designed in mind for people that have such dietary restrictions including gluten-free and vegetarian in addition to a full robust menu for food that folks without dietary restrictions can enjoy like burgers and pizza. The server we had was wonderful, the ambiance was great, and the quality of the food was *outstanding*. I had a fantastic dining experience here and cannot wait until I have another opportunity to go again. Please keep up the excellent work!

I met friends whom I have seen for a very long time. It was nice and quiet and our waiter did not bother us at all to expedite taking the orders. But, the Asian Noodle Bowl was not very tasty. As a matter of fact, the meat had a distinctive taste that two of us did not eat our lunch. The portions were big, so we ate the noodles but left the protein. This was brought to the attention of our waiter who offered his apologies. In other restaurants, the manager would come in person and offer something else but this did not happen in Glow. My other friend ordered a salad with shrimp and she enjoyed it a lot.

Service was pretty slow considering the restaurant was not busy. Decor was kinda cool but the vibe of the restaurant was so boring with very soft music I felt like other tables could hear our conversations. Quality of food was pretty poor. Ordered the margarita pizza and it came with cheddar cheese on it as opposed to the advertised bocconcini. Also ordered the brussel sprout Caesar salad with steak medium and it the meat was cold to the touch. Potential to be a cool restaurant but this was a poor experience. With the other options in the immediate area I would opt for a different restaurant.

Glow is a wonderful place to enjoy a visit with friends and the food is delicious. I had the Cobb salad and it was very tasty and the portion generous. After we had finished our meal we weren't rushed out and continued our chat. I think we were the last lunch guests to leave. Always love to come here!
