Nice night out with my husband. The fried cheese curds were delicious as was the green onion cake. My husband enjoyed his pork satay and my homemade pasta dish was amazing. You must have the Jack’s grill bread pudding! Delicious! Great attentive service. Restaurant was a little loud.

Three adults had a lovely weekend dinner, complete with appetizers (wings and spring rolls) and mains (pizza, satay boneless pork and chicken parmesan) and wine (Yalumba Viognier).
The wait staff was very attentive and we were very pleased with her understanding and accomodation for our friend's dietary needs. The server was knowledgeable but also appropriately checked with the kitchen. She was outstanding !

We ate (by choice) on the patio. The music at first was annoying but it was turned down. Service was mostly quick and friendly and the food was of a quality we expect of The Glass Monkey. As the place got busier toward the end of our meal the service slowed down a bit.
Overall another enjoyable meal at a restaurant we think of as a reliable friend.

Nice neighborhood style restaurant with great service. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Food was very tasty but not adventurous.
Ordered pork dish - category “large plate” but was quite small, almost appetizer size. That’s a cheap cut of meat so that was hard to understand and the chicken dish was delicious but barely half a chicken breast, quite overcooked, also a “large plate “
Busy Friday night and not much physical distancing and pretty noisy.
We would definitely go again probably when the weather was nice enough to sit out on their very nice patio and at a time when it’s not so busy.

We love that Glass Monkey uses local ingredients as much as possible, and that the food is made from scratch in house. The small plates/large plates program means we can stop by for snacks, or have a full blown dinner. There are rotating features as well, and an absolutely fantastic wine list by the bottle and glass. The staff always make us feel welcomed and taken care of every time we go. For a strip mall location, they have a lovely walled in patio with heaters for when it is a bit chilly. You can't leave unless you have the bread pudding for dessert - we have literally been enjoying it for decades!

Slipping out to dinner with a good friend, the patio was protected enough for a very pleasant evening. Sharing a bottle of Prosecco, two veggie small plates, arancini (all yum), margarita pizza (a cheesy hit, topped with freshly chopped basil), we had enough space for dessert, not shared, and decaf Americanos. Not a crumb left anywhere, including the house-made berry crumble with vanilla ice cream and tiramisu (maybe not classic, but I’d order it again).
Service was attentive and not without humour.
Covid doc and ID appropriately checked.

Glass Monkey is one of my favorite “go to” places which I’ll continue to go to.

We haven’t eaten here for a while so we were very pleased with the menu and the service. We had fresh BC mussels flown in the same day. Our server Chris was very good. A great local restaurant for us.

The Salt Spring mussels were plump and delicious with a superb broth! The chicken tagliatelle was scrumptious - a favourite for us. Our waiter provided such a mouth-watering description of the turtle cheesecake that we tried it and were not disappointed! A very nice dinner on the patio, as the sun set. Our go-to neighbourhood bistro! Thank you!

Our party of four went here to reprise the last time we had dined together pre-pandemic. We were disappointed that a specific favourite item - carpaccio - was no longer on the menu. While two of us chose one of the specials and enjoyed our meals very much, the other two who both ordered the tri-tip found the quality of the beef to be sub-par.
