Glass Monkey is very well located for get/together! The room is comfy & menu diverse. Service friendly with great wine list!
Meatball appie was very good as was beet salad! Salmon & flank steak special well received!

This is a very pleasant place for a casual meal. We particularly enjoyed the skirt steak with chimichurri sauce. The house red wine went well with the steak. And the bread pudding is one of our perennial favorites. There is a bit of a sports bar atmosphere at one end of the room, but it wasn't too noisy.

Once again, The Glass Monkey has proved to be just the right place for a special meal. We had both a toddler and child with us, and both found food on the menu that suited them, and kept them busy eating. The service was wonderful, both friendly and attentive. The food is always good, and we have to try hard to try new items, because we all have our favourites. There is no doubt that we'll be back!

Very attentive service. Hailey knew her wine list and made a good recommendation for a Malbec.

The mushroom thin crust pizza was outstanding, along with very respectable chicken wings. The roasted beet salad is a “must order.”

Didn't know about 1/2 price wine on Monday but it was a great surprise when I saw the
-$19 on the bill.

Though we did not eat on the patio, it seemed to be very popular.

A great meal and wonderful attentive service without being obtrusive in a place we generally enjoy. However, on this occasion, an otherwise excellent evening was offset by an extremely loud table group adjoining that seemed to have no consideration for the fact other diners might like to be able to speak to one another without shouting. Its unfortunate the staff didn't show some initiative by suggesting the other group tone it down.

Tasty food but very small menu. The waiter service was great but one of the owners tried to give us a bar table instead of the outdoor table I reserved. There are more interesting choices in the are for the same cost/benefit.

Disappointing food in a noisy neighbourhood strip mall. The server was difficult to understand his English was so poor. Everything from cocktails through salad, main and dessert were pedestrian. If this is supposed to be home cooking, it needs to be way more flavourful. Wouldn’t recommend and nothing close to Jack’s Grill caliber of dining.

Thirsty Thursday (with discounted beer and bottled cider) and half price pizza before 5:30 makes for a very affordable early evening! All four pizza choices were good, but my Hawaiian was spectacular.

Recently was at the restaurant for a friends get-together. Asked for a reservation with 15 minutes flexibility as we weren't sure on arrival time and restaurant had table ready and held for us when we arrived. Considering arrived just before 9 pm it was very crowded and a bit noisy for conversation but the food and service was very good. Would recommend.

The food was very good and the service was excellent. It was a packed house so everything was a little crowded and noisy. Unfortunately, not so good for the conversation for a table of 7. But I do think that your restaurant has good value but for quiet conversation , perhaps we will have to pick a weeknight instead of a weekend.

Cheese platter was extremely good value, lots of cheese and with an excellent chutney. Main meals were very good. We didn’t see too much of our server, she seemed to have a very large section of big tables, and one table seemed to take a lot of her attention. We will be back though, as the food was very good

Enjoyed the early evening dining with my friend. Server Rick was very good. As the evening wore on the room was incredibly full and very noisy. In my opinion, a few less tables would ease the cramped feeling and the noise.

Discovered this place a few years ago with my husband. Actually had some sort of coupon so decided to check it out.
When we pulled into the parking lot and discovered it was in a old strip mall we kinda looked at each other like ???? Hmmmm
Well don’t judge a book by its cover. The moment we walked through the front door we were taken to a totally different world and a quaint dinning experience.
The menu may set you back a bit at first glance but don’t let that deceive you either. It is well thought out for ALL appetites. Big, small, shareable and diverse.
The menu only also isn’t the only options available. Their nightly specials will blow your mind and your taste buds!

Since our first visit here we have returned solo and with unassuming friends from out out town. The atmosphere is such that you don’t feel rushed nor do you want to leave. Everyone we have taken has fallen in love with the place.

Many local people we have ask about ever hearing about it say ... ‘well, I’ve seen it but .....”

Tonight we wanted to celebrate a recent engagement for a young couple. One of which is from Kazakhstan along with 8 others. Being the coordinators of the event we were a little anxious hoping everyone would find something to please their palette.

All I have to say is.... BAM.... we killed it!!! . Rather our waiter, his team and the Chef blew everyone out of the park.

So here I am letting you in on a little secret .... if you want a nice night out for two or you want to be event coordinators extraordinaire go to The Glass Monkey. Just make sure you save us a table.

We were greeted by very nice people and asked to clear up an issue with our phone number on Open Table but we had a waiter that had such a heavy accent everyone at our table had trouble understanding him along with the background noise. The drinks were ridiculously priced, one of our party asked for a tall drink - it came in the exact same glass as mine but the waiter clearly said that it was a tall. Perhaps there was only one ounce but then why was she charged the same as mine? We were eating at 7:30 ish and one of the special starters was already sold out - correction - there was only one order left. We all enjoyed out meal and the food was excellent. The waiter was very nice and professional but we all had a very hard time understanding him. price of the menu items was fair - just the alcholic beverages that were way overpriced.

We went to The Glass Monkey for my mother-in-law's 70th birthday. I had driven by many times and saw the good reviews online and thought it would be a great place to try for the occasion. I was really impressed with the level of service. Their team called in advance to confirm the reservation and asked about the occasion. During our dinner, they surprised us with an entire cake (the best chocolate cake I've ever had) with 'Happy 70th Birthday' on it for our table of 7. The food was fantastic and they have a great wine/beer/cocktail selection. Everyone at the table had a great night and I'm looking forward to going back for a more low key post work beverage and appies. I would highly recommend to anyone.

We enjoyed the food and variety on the menu, however our night did not start well when we made reservations in the morning on line and we were seated right by the front door and had to continuously move our chairs as people came in the restaurant. Our server was pleasant and helpful however the whole time we were there it felt like we were rushed to get out . We had reservations for 6:15 and by 7:15 got the feeling our server wanted us to finish up. As mentioned the food was excellent and i would recommend this restaurant to anybody and we need to give it a second chance as maybe we could request better seating and pick a different night as it was very busy and maybe that is why we felt rushed.
