Glow Fresh Grill & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
Food was ok, but nothing special. Desserts definitely could have used more effort. Service was terrible-- our server paid attention to us until we got our food, then disappeared. 4 other servers came around to take our plates, give us a take out container, etc. By the time she came back (she wasn't on break, we could see her going back and forth by our table, ignoring us), we had gone through the entire list of Golden Globe nominees and were ready to leave. We were there for three hours total for a simple dinner on New Year's Eve and ended up leaving at 9pm!
I booked our office Christmas lunch and mentioned on the booking that we were celebrating a birthday. The waiter was attentive and the meal was fine but after the main course he asked if we wanted coffee. At no time did he ask if we wanted dessert and no one had contacted me beforehand to see if we wanted a cake. The restaurant was virtually empty on Dec. 22nd so the staff wasn’t rushed. I won’t book a special occasion at Glow in future.
Great outing with the golf group, everything was perfect, food service and a low enough noise level so we could carry on a conversation!
The steak I had was perfect as were the Rack of lamb my friends enjoyed!
I have been to most of the Restaurants at the Don Mills center and Glow is the Best!
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.
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.
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.
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!
Food & service were very good & my friend & I enjoyed our meal. The only negative thing is the noise level is awful. My friend & I had to yell across the table to have a conversation. This is annoying and not very relaxing. Can you not do something about this?
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.
