The food was good.
Ordered off the the earlier prefix menu (before 6:00pm) and everyone at our table thought it was good.
Service was slow. Experienced this before a this location. Waiter not very personable and not very attentive. Could be better as the restaurant was half full at best.
Washrooms clean and modern.

We were a little picky with our table selection and we were accommodated without hassle. Our waitress was amazing and attentative even though she had a party if 24 beside us. Food was bang on and all 4 dishes tasted great. The small desert options are fantastic. Over all a great place to go. Expect a high noise level though.

What a disappointment! The early-bird special on Monday November 4, was not so special. Fishy-smelling sole that had to be sent back and exchanged for something else and dry, tough, tasteless pork chop that was inedible. At least the dessert was good. Service was okay, but could not make up for the poor quality of the food. In spite of previous visits that were most enjoyable, we will have to think twice about going back, especially for an early-bird.

I was at Glow twice before Saturday past. On both occasions , I had the mixed grill. As I recall there was beef (filet), lamb, salmon, octopus, and a fine saussage. I thought it far and away the best mixed grill in the city. On that first occasion I had it all to myself and it was far too much for one person.
On the 2nd occasion, I shared the grill with my guest and we also each had appetizers. That really was perfect.
When I was there this past Saturday night, the mixed grill really changed and there was no longer salmon and octopus. Instead .... chicken and something else. I asked if we could substitute , and was told OK....at a price.

HOWEVER !!!
The fine print said that you could not order one grill, you had to order two grills; furthermore, the grill could not be shared .
Big disappointment. The best grill in town disappeared.
So too Glow, from my radar.....also ....they need better sound dampening.
Pity.
RIP

The mushroom soup was very underseasoned. It could have used a modicum of salt and possibly thyme. The soup lacked flavour. The Balzac coffee was very bitter, but, of course that is personal taste. The server was wonderful. The club house sandwich was quite tasty.
I have eaten at Glow in the past and I have been happy with the food.

The food at Sunday brunch was very low quality for the price. $30 per person. One would think that there would be a nice dessert station. Not. The turkey sausages were dry and lousy and the peak meal bacon looked and felt like cardboard. The scrambled eggs had a foreign spice in them. I couldn’t even eat them. That’s how bad they were. The waffles were hard as rocks.
This is my third time at the Sunday buffet. First two times the menu had a whole baked salmon with dill dressing that was absolutely delicious. That’s why I came back again.
I would not recommend the buffet this time.

Glow never disappoints. The food is delicious and there are lots of choices. I like the fact that there are only a couple of screens so you are not constantly distracted with sports and news.

I've come here before, usually for dinner, and the food is so great as well as their juices! It was my first time having their Sunday Brunch. The omelette station was very good; you put whatever toppings you want and they do the rest. The salad dressings were one of my favorite things they offered! The cold dishes were great but the rest of the food was just average (eg. scrambled eggs, sausages).

The staff are always friendly. Waiting to talk to the host was long though. Not sure if they should have had two hosts since the one had to talk to the customers, get the tables ready, hang jackets, bring them to the table, and as well as give the jackets back. She did this one by one instead of talking to all the people that came through the door so it took really long to tell her we already had reservations.

I would definitely recommend eating dinner there though, especially during the summer when their patio is open! It's less chaotic!

Not the most dynamic food experience. I only return to this restaurant because a few friends in our group like it and the location is suitable for most of us. The food looks better than it actually is; presentation is lovely, but the flavours (when present) are very mild. Nothing stands out as memorable or "that-was-so-good-I-have-to-have-it-again". I also usually leave this restaurant hungry and for what we're paying, that's not good. (Even the desserts look good, but are boring to eat.)

Service was good. Lots of time waiting for our server to return to take our order, then to get our bills.

I’m vegan, and was hard pressed to find choices. Really think you guys should think about updating the menu to include more vegan choices. I asked to have glow salad made “bigger, by adding more veggies and avocado.. even Brussels sprouts from your other salad, but all I got was maybe a wee bit more avocado. Also, I like organic tea. Offer at least 1 type of organic tea!!!!!!

I've been to Glow 3 times now, including when it first opened and I find the upholstery is looking tired and old and needs a refresh. The brunch selection was wonderful, but the flow of the brunch display was awkward with too long of a wait for omelettes..

Great meal and service as always.

Only draw back this time there was a large group of 40 or more and the noise level was painful.
Thankfully we were almost finished our meal. But we did notice people coming in and turning right around and leaving because of the noise. It might be helpful if in future groups of this size use the private function room.

This won’t deter me from returning but I might be checking out the crowd for large noisy groups in the future before I get my table.

Excellent service from our waitress. Great early bird deal for dinner and it's this that brings us back often. My only complaint is the high level of noise, 2 people can't hear their own conversation.
Recommendation is to isolate groups from 2-seater diners. It was a real down to our experience

We have met with different friends and relatives at Glow several times and have enjoyed the food and ambience every time. On two occasions I took my 18 year old granddaughter and then the 15 year old. They both enjoyed our lunch visits. All three of us chose the "shooter" deserts and liked them very much - will have them again.
