    I have been to the glass light, maybe twice or just once before my most recent visit. And yet.. our server recognized me from my last visit over a year ago! She was personable and funny, as well as being a great server as you'd expect. The food mmm my gosh. We came for the Key Lime dessert, and ended up getting the Cavatappi entree to split which was better than we imagined and drinks as well!!

    Food and Service were both excellent! After a recent Executive Chef change, this was our first visit…everything was as good as, or better than it had been in the past. The Glass Light Restaurant is a jewel, and as always, provided a most memorable experience.

    Great experience. Being able to tour the glass museum with a cocktail while we wait for dinner was very cool. Service was terrific. Drink menu is really creative. Food was excellent — one exception was the acorn squash with the scallops. Scallops were great, acorn squash not so much. Other than that, thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Thank you!

    The prime rib was full of fat and silver skin and the fries were soggy the fries they needed to change frying oil. My guest had the fish was overcooked. Overall not satisfied at all. Not worth the money I spent.

    Our Mothers Day brunch could not have been more enjoyable--excellent and varied menu items for selection. Our attentive server was very helpful in making modifications to my wife's entree (because of her allergies); both she and the sommelier ensured our wine selections were presented and poured properly. This remains our favorite restaurant in downtown Norfolk!
