    Awesome food! We did have a request when we came in to have celebratory Prosecco delivered upon us all being seated. That did not happen, it had to be ordered, then a long wait for drinks to come to the table. A bit disappointing, but a 1st world problem really.

    I would have given 5 stars overall if we didnt get a table with the worst sun glare. The second table in (half moon booth) as you enter was awful from 7:15 till we left 9 I couldnt see anything or my partner. Couldn't see my dish I was eating. I want to go back but I will be requesting to sit somewhere else

    We had reservations at 745…..got seated just before 8 (short staffed) so we were told. Our server was fantastic-but we waited for over an hour for our food. It really wasn’t “that” busy but having said that-not sure how busy the patio was. I’m kinda sad because everyone raved at how good it was-so I was excited to go as a family. Not sure I’d go back.

    The food had always been good but this last visit it was just mediocre. As were the drinks. I asked when I checked in for my reso if we could transition to the patio when table became available and was told that wasn’t an option, which is fine and makes sense. However, 2 groups around us were able to move outside after sitting at a table inside.

    The restaurant is wonderful. The food delicious and the view really lovely. Unfortunately our table was directly in front of the bar where the staff seemed to congregate. The volume of their talk and laughter was distracting to say the least and the language they were using was totally inappropriate. This was our first visit to Glo (we have lived here for 14 months) and would like to make it a regular night out but we will most definitely be wary of the table we are given. Overall a good experience but as old timers (we are in our 60’s) we believe is appropriate behaviour and language for people on the job in a public space. Our purpose here is not complain but rather to enhance our next experience and that of your other patrons. Regards, James

    Glo Restaurant + LoungeResponded 2 days agoHello James, thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review and some feedback. I sincerely apologize for what transpired during your last visit. I have taken this opportunity to follow up with my management team and will be reminding all staff of proper etiquette and language when speaking near guests. We really appreciate you taking the time to reach out, and hope you will consider joining us again soon!

    Where should I begin? Really, this is the second best restaurant I have been to in my 20 years living in Victoria. I asked myself why haven't I been to this restaurant sooner? But I am definitely will be a frequent from now on... The food was absolutely delicious. The view is beautiful and the staff were nice. The prices, considering the value you get, is well worth it and are moderate. You will surely enjoy your time there... Check it out ;)

    I’ve been to Glo on multiple occasions and have always enjoyed it. On this occasion, a friends birthday, I was disappointed by the food. My truffled fries were over cooked and dried out so were very disappointing (they’ve always been so good in past visits) and the turkey Brie club was a huge disappointment, there was lots of turkey but the bun was too large for the ingredients and the sandwich had very little flavour, bland and dry, very skimpy amount of ?cranberry jelly? looked red but not enough to be able to taste it or to moisten the sandwich. Very substandard meal

    Glo Restaurant + LoungeResponded 2 days agoHello Ian, thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review. As you are a returning patron of ours, we appreciate you taking the time to leave us some feedback. I am sorry to hear that your Truffle Fries and Turkey Club were not up to our usual standards. Our team of highly trained chefs always aims to provide consistently delicious meals, so I apologize that this is not what you received from us. We hope you will consider this a one-off and join us again soon.

    Gorgeous outdoor patio except the view of the car dump (suggestion: extend the glass panel higher and have a frosted glass pattern or wrought iron divider soften the view. ) Excellent Buddha Bowl, Smoothie Bowl and Pear and Candied Pecan Salad. However asking for a side of toast was a bit shocking : $3 for one slice is ridiculous. 2 orders pays for a whole loaf!!!! How can that be justified, especially when it is ordered as a side. But I still loved it here and would go back.

    Well usually we have s great time but they were short staffed at 730pm...though it shouldn't have taken 30mins to even get talked to and bring over water. That was insane to us! Drinks we ordered at 8pm were not discounted as per menu for happy hour after 8pm..food was a bit salty for us as well. Gorgeous patio and I feel for the staff but we had enough ppl pass us that could have stopped by multiple times. If u don't have the staff, then don't seat ppl. Close sections off or teach staff to better multi-task? 🤔 Hopefully it's better next time!
