I selected the restaurant for the ambiance thinking it would be perfect for my out of the country guests.
Service was top notch, we all ordered the lunch special fish and chips!
The appetizer was a pleasant start, however, when our meals came you can see the frying grease all over the tissue topping the plate. The grease was everywhere which of course did not make wanting to delve into the meal. Way too much batter as well. We all did not finish our meals.
I would not order this again, this was my first visit to the restaurant.

Dear Loumar, Thank you kindly for writing us your honest feedback. It is very unfortunate to hear that despite the ambiance and top notch service that the meal was only worth one star. We will be sure to take your feedback to the kitchen as it is the best way for us to learn how to improve. The fish and chips are loved by many so I will follow up to make sure each plate is going out with consistency. Hope that you can join us again to try something different.

Food was quite good. Service was great except it took a while to get a hold of our server in order to get our bill (as we had a show to catch). Unfortunately there was a very strong stench that came from the washrooms that was detected when passing by the washrooms (Before one even went downstairs). It was quite unexpected and it unfortunately was the last thing I remembered after my meal. Glowbal is a beautiful restaurant but something so simple as keeping a bathroom maintained really left a bad impression.

It wasn't my first visit, however this time wasn't a good experience. We heater outside didn't work, we spent an hour waiting for propane, didn't happen and we moved to another table. It took long time till we had our food. Even the desserts, that i guess are not being made as the main dish, came out late with a cold coffee. I loved that restaurant so far, unfortunately won't come back. That's isn't a cheap place, would expect a better experience.

Dear Natali, Thank you so much for your honest feedback.

Long time wait for food, beverages, etc. should be communicated with the guests immediately and we will be following up with both your servers.

I have visited Global before on several occasions. This is my second time using the BUY UP, and the first time was Summer of this year. The BUY UP from the Summer included 2 more glass of wine compare to this Fall/Winter BUY UP. Also, the dessert was more beautifully presented back in the Summer than this time. That being said, I am not majorly disappointed, because it's still a fantastic value, the restaurant, food, and services were all wonderful. Though one hiccup to the night was that we didn't know the wine per glass price on the menu was for 5oz, and when we ordered the wine, our waitress asked if we want our wine in 8oz, and I said yes because I assumed 8oz was the standard; however, our wine bill came almost double the price than what we expected. I asked our waitress why the price was not what was shown on the menu, and she said because I chose 8oz when she asked me. I felt she could have stated at the time when I ordered that the price would be higher, and ask if that's ok, rather than having the bill becoming a surprise to us.

Dear valued guest, Thank you so much for the five star review despite of the lack of communication from your server about the pricing. We are very happy to hear that you still enjoyed the evening for our fall/winter buy up. It would be greatly appreciated if you could send me an email at aminhas@glowbal.ca mentioning the name and time of your reservation so our team can learn better as to who the server was. This would help in ensuring such thing does not happen again. Sincerest apologies.

Took advantage of the $99 voucher for $199 meal for two. We brought our youngest along thinking we would need to get an extra meal. Our server suggested that the meal for two was more than enough for the three of us, which it was. The appetizer, entree, and dessert was all excellent, but we couldn't finish between the three of us. Service was excellent and I was so grateful for the tip provided by Marco. My tip to those taking advantage of this deal is to leave a gratuity based on the full value of the meal. In my opinion the amount of effort and attention required to serve it justifies doing this.

Bought the $99 voucher and went on a Sunday evening. The start was great. Got seated right away with my reservation. The server take our order fairly quickly once confirming we were here for the voucher offer. The Prosecco and appetizers came fairly quickly. Then everything goes downhill. Our reservation was for 6pm and by 6:45pm our appetizers were done and we were expecting the entree to be served around 7 or 7:15. However, the entree waa not served until slightly after 8. During this entire time, nobody came to check on us or inform us the kitchen was running behind. It was not until we asked at around 7:45pm that our server informed us the kitchen was very busy and brought over another two glasses Prosecco on the house.

Fortunately food was delicious and the server was nice. However, I would caution against heading here for dinner service if you are planning to do anything time restrictive after.

Our experience this past Friday at Glowbal was excellent. We went for dinner before a concert (at QE Theatre) for my partners birthday - which I only very briefly mentioned when I made the reservation a few weeks prior to our visit. Upon our arrival they wished my partner a happy birthday which was honestly such a simple but much appreciated gesture. Then, after seating us, they presented us with some birthday bubbles! Again, not expected, but very much appreciated. Our server Trina was very good to us and was very pleasant to deal with. She was also kind enough to bring us a dessert sampler with candles at the end of the night to top it all off. The food was delicious but the service - on a busy Friday night - was phenomenal. We will definitely be coming back!
