    We enjoy the Glass monkey very much, Good tasty food and they always have specials menu which gives patroons opportunity to try new dishes which we enjoy. Staff are friendly & courteous Unfortunately when there is a full house it is extremely noisy. Would suggest sound baffling elements be introduced

    Wasn’t overly impressed. It was really cold. Really loud; couldn’t hear people across the table from me. My cocktail was good but the 3 appetizers were quite mediocre. Service was just okay; maybe the waitress felt rushed as it was quite busy. And a bit overpriced.

    $20 for two small scallops and gross tasting cabbage was kind of a rip off not to mention they were cold! Also the food took awhile to come out . I’ve gone before and I’ve had a better experience. I don’t know that I would go back again.

    We are regular customers at the Monkey so this review may seem a little biased. This is a cozy bistro/gastropub set in a strip mall in a nice part of south Edmonton. The food rarely (as in never) disappoints and there is always something on the "specials" side of the menu that makes one go, "hmmm, interesting"... Beer selection is great with a very healthy selection of brews on tap, craft and corporate, being offered. The wine list is also extensive. This is not a quiet place (usually). A lot of patrons call this resto home and as a result because it is a smaller venue, can be "energetic" This is not a criticism, just an observation. From a pocketbook perspective, the Glass Monkey is probably in a bit of a pricier bracket but the food quality and atmosphere more than make up for it. I would totally recommend.

    This restaurant was one of the many we had planned on visiting for the last while, so it was nice to come here last minute and arrive at a busy place which is always a good sign. Even though it was last minute I was still able to make a reso which I would recommend. The oysters were delicious, the cocktails and wine were very nice. My duck breast was a little over cooked as it should’ve been a little more pink inside and my girlfriends couscous was a little dry. Other than those complaints the food was very pleasing and worth it. Desserts were incredible. I thought the recommend tipping was a little ridiculous as it starts at 24% as your first option which is way to high of a tip in my opinion, regardless of how the service was. Overall, this is a solid pick and I would recommend coming here to anyone thinking about it.

    Would definitely recommend! Food and service was excellent (Jack served us salmon appy, seafood risotto, pumpkin ginger, lamb curry and bread pudding dessert). Busy Friday evening so it was pretty full and the sound level required we lean in to converse. We sat on the bar side, metallic chairs were tall, no cushions, bit of leg dangling going on so it impacted circulation in the legs - probably could use a refresh on those. Will probably plan a return in the summer to try the patio, I hear it’s great!

    From start to finish we were cared for as if we were long time friends of the owner. Ur table was fantastic, the hostess very pleasant and engaging; the food, as always, was excellent and we were never short on water or anything else we needed. This is one of my favourite restaurants in edmonton - lots of free parking and a great place for a date!

    I like the Glass Monkey being a friendly neighborhood restaurant. The ambient is warm and welcoming. The food was tasty as well. Unfortunately the service was not good at all - we were pushed and rushed through the whole evening. Being attentive is important; however it did not feel like that.

Definitely we will go back and highly recommend trying this hidden gem!

    It’s a hidden gem. Low-key classy ambience that doesn’t feel outdated. Food tasted great. Right portion. We had the curry cauliflower, chicken wings, pumpkin soup to start. My main dish was chicken piccata. Every dish tasted pretty good with the right balanced flavour. The service was very good too. This place will be added to my go-to list of restaurants.

    Though I have been to the Glass Monkey many times, tonight was the first for my guest. Requesting a peripheral table with my reservation (hearing deficit), our table marginally met our needs. As always, we both enjoyed our food - my guest choosing small plates, potato skins and dried ribs (boneless), and a dessert, Turtle cheesecake, as well as sharing the wonderful beet salad with me. My choice was the Seafood Risotto, creamy with perfectly prepared shrimp and scallops. Beer and wine choices continue to be broad and interesting and we were delighted with a smooth Spanish red. Our servicer was attentive, if not aggressive, but my guest found him annoying. She also thought the menu "dense", difficult to read through, and expensive. Even I was surprised at the significant price increase from the summer. The Glass Monkey is an excellent and necessary restaurant in my community. However, it has shifted from my neighborhood gastropub to a special occasion, thus less frequented, dining choice.

    Glass Money was fabulous as always. Muscles were delicious (maybe could have been a few more) and the wine was fantastic. Halibut and the flat iron steak were our main dishes - outstanding. Highly recommend the entire experience. Local owners knocking it out of the park!!

    Amazing in every way! We were graciously greeted, had attentive and thoughtful service and didn’t wait long for our drinks or food. Best tasting cocktails we’ve had anywhere, plus the wine recommendation paired amazingly with our meals. It was obvious that the delicious food was prepared and plated thoughtfully and with love. Great atmosphere - tasteful decor with just the right amount of lighting. Lovely ambiance. Lively energy, but not too loud. Wonderful evening in every way.

    Unfortunately neither me or my date were impressed with any of our dishes. We ended up sending most of it back. The pate was dry and lumpy- served with uninspiring bread. Reminded us of cat food Tuna was somehow just wrong- didn’t taste right Overall- expensive and disappointing
