I'm always blown away by how upscale Glo looks and feels, yet the prices aren't exorbitant. It's nestled so perfectly on the Gorge- with panoramic windows and a crisp esthetic- and the staff is more than friendly.

The food was delicious, and the service was great. Our table was a little small for 5 people, but that was quickly remedied , so no complaints. They also have an excellent gluten free menu, which is nice to see , we will be back.

My husband and I went to this restaurant to celebrate my 83rd birthday. From the moment we entered Glo,our celebration was outstanding. We were pleasantly greeted by a young lady who was wearing a mask and were comforted that all the staff were wearing masks during Covid-19.

The food as always was beautifully presented and extra delicious. Our server made us feel special and it was a luxurious feeling to be relaxing in such a beautiful location with my glass of Prosecco. Thank you to all the staff at Glo for making my birthday special.

I was really disappointed with my visit here. I went here with my wife for our anniversary and I was very excited cuz I have heard such good things but I thoroughly underwhelmed. The food was bland and the drinks where not tasty. The server got upset with us when we didn’t like the appetizer and all we did was ask for salt and water. She was then upset with us for the rest of the night. We wanted to leave long before our meal arrived. I don’t like complaining but I support our family and we don’t have a lot of money, it sucked that this was what we spent it on.

First it took us 8 minutes to get greeted and drink orders taken. We both ordered Ceasars and they looked really dark, super spicy and way too much worcestershire. The staff explains that he always makes them extra spicy (so why not tell us this while ordering) we asked for extra clamato but still wasn't able to finish the drink. After ordering our food was out in about 5 minutes which was really fast. I ordered a 8oz sirloin steak which looked like a steak you would get at Dennys with your eggs. It was 1/8" thick and covered half my plate at best this is a flank steak not even a new York strip. I brought this to the attention of the staff she agreed it looked thin but would talk to the manager. She came back with its what they got from the supplier I told her that this is not a 33$ steak. She came back with a coupon for a appy or dessert for next time. Nobody from management came to explain why my steak looked like a hammered out pork chop. Still charged us full price for drinks and dinner. I left the coupon at the table telling the host taking our payment (the waitress didn't came back after giving us this coupon) that we don't want the coupon because we are not coming back.

About the noise; I wouldn’t say “energetic” but way too loud and irritating! We skipped coffee and dessert because of the noise. Almost went to eat somewhere else actually.
Our server was wonderful (forgot to ask her name!).
My previous experience at Glo was not very positive as the server was pushy and impatient.
This time, she was amazing. No fake amazing, just nice and relaxed and professional. One of the best server I have had in a long time!!
