This restaurant is very near and dear to my heart as it was the restaurant my husband and I had our first official date two years ago. We come back twice a year, and on our anniversary date from that first meeting. Great food, good value and beautiful atmosphere. This time around we were celebrating my husband's birthday with my family and now they love this restaurant too.

The special Easter brunch was labled “premium” and was anything but....a real disappointment and waste of money.

Great service like always. Scrambled eggs should not go on a buffet. My adult children both left them because they were cold and tasteless. The chicken dish (I think butter chicken) was in a clear gravy with leaves (possibly bay leafs). My younger son found it okay but not how he has had it in multiple Indian restaurants. The pasta had been sitting a while. My older son loved the omelettes and found the preparer a great asset to the restaurant. I would prefer to order food freshly made rather than coming for this buffet. I will continue to come for early dine, and meals on the patio when the weather gets nicer.

We were very disappointed. The food for Easter Brunch was meagre and lacked variety or quality. There was no cheese table, only cream cheese and mini bagels. A lot of fruit and an omllette station was not worth the almost $30 a person price tag. Coffee or juice were extra. I usually attend Glow in the evening and while the value is not what it was a few years ago, this daytime meal made me reconsider the venue entirely.

My friend & I had lunch here on a Friday. I was surprised it wasn't too busy. Had not been here in several months. I was impressed that they had turned the music down. It was possible to have a conversation without shouting. Please Glow continue to keep the volume of the music down!

Service & food were very good. Coffee was delicious. This is my go to restaurant when I am in Don Mills.

The steak was horrible that was on the Cesar salad the lobster wasn’t shelled properly. Kept finding shells in food. Couldn’t even finish my meal and was still charged for the lobster Mac and cheese. Even though we spoke to the manager. Horrible restaurant. Won’t go back

They have steak, but not that good. I dont recommend it here. Portions are little small for what you pay. Service for us was awesome. So friendly and accommodating. Try the octopus appetizer. Unbelievable. Should be an entree. Creme brulee was great and the specialty coffees were perfect. Overall was nice evening.

I have eaten here before...it was good 1st time. This last experience was not so good. Didnt have the wine i ordered...no big deal. But they wanted to start bringing food before the wine as 20 mins had passed...still no wine. Then brought wrong bottle second time around. Then brought my salad after my entree...all 4 entree orders had something incorrect( wrong side dish etc.. ).
Mgr did his best to correct with a desert.
Just expected a lot more from this place.

This was unfortunately not a positive experience. It took a half hour for our server to take our drink order.
I ordered the seafood risotto which is a $33 dish. It arrived and at first I told them they brought the wrong dish as there was no risotto. They said it was there And it was the right dish so I moved the numerous mussel shells and was able to find a very small amount at the bottom which was literally like soup. It looked awful. As I said there were numerous mussel shells, five of which were empty and I am convinced they were put there to hide the disaster that was underneath!
Separate to my meal, I was with a friend & her meal was brought over & was completely wrong. So hers was taken back &replaced. I tried mine and it tasted awful. Our waitress never returned to our table but I happen to see someone walking around who looked like he may be the manager so I asked him and he was so I explained my plates situation to him and he looked at it and the look on his face basically said it all thus he agreed with me that it didn't look right. So he asked me if I wanted another one and at this point I was turned off the plate and thought I would rather try something else. I chose the fresh herb gnocchi. So my friend has now basically finished her meal and now I am left waiting for mine to come. So it finally comes and I literally never complain about my food but this wasn't much better. It was soaking in cream sauce (menu says a "light cream sauce"), it has the equivalent of half a chicken breast and 11 pieces of gnocchi -I literally counted! There was the equivalent of 1 stalk of asparagus & a LOT of onion (shallot) chunks. It also had half sliced grapes. This is just a palate comment but to me the grapes & the rest of the ingredients do not gel. I couldn't even eat half of it due to the liquid sauce so $25 was also wasted. The Manager never returned to see how things were which I found poor. Server returned to ask for dessert order. Overall I would not return.

The restaurant is very nice, clean and modern. Parking is easy as there is a free parking lot close by. In the summer, the patio would be quite nice as long as it is not too hot. The food is tasty and plentiful. I had the cobb salad minus a few items but was large and very satisfying. One criticism...they tried to give us coffee that was lukewarm....but our server was most apologetic and brought hot coffee to two of us diners. I recommend for lunch not sure about dinner.

Went for Valentine's day dinner, as everywhere else it was fairly busy, menu was changed last minute, upon booking we were expecting valentine's menu with pairings. Service was great checking in and providing updates with our meals as it was taking longer than expected. Grilled calamari starter was great. However we ordered steaks as recommended and came very rare instead of medium, they kindly offered to recook them but had dried them out. With restaurant being very busy we got hungry and ate what we had.

We alerted the service staff to a severe food allergy, which the server advised the kitchen. However the ordered item came with the item in question. Even though the server and manager where apologetic, the overall experience wasn't great. At the end of the meal we were presented with the wrong bill.

I had the Lobster Mac n Cheese - it was luke warm and very bland. Not worth the price.

We have been to Glow on numerous occasions and enjoyed the food but this time we were extremely disappointed. There were a few large groups that requires quite a bit of attention from servers. Our food came it room temperature. We both had surf and turf. I couldn’t eat my meat it was exceptionally chewy. The lobster was over cooked on the outside and under cooked on the inside and lacked any kind of flavouring i taste. The potatoes tasted like they had been frozen and then thawed.
It was very disappointing especially since it is a place I recommend often to friends.
