The food was really good but it was kind of loud. Probably because we were seated next to a large group.

The service was okay.

Would go back again.

The food and service were wonderful. The Caesar salad was served as a half head of romaine heart with dressing and fresh bacon bits, which was very different, but definitely a great twist for an old standby. I will definitely go back.

The Glass Monkey's staff made our friend's get-together, dining experience fantastic - from the moment I called to say I was going to arrive a few minutes late, to their phone call letting me know a purse had been left behind. We visited and dined (small plates/appetizers) at our own pace and never felt like we were being pushed out the door - even at the 4-hour mark! The complimentary dessert wine was a perfect ending to a delightful visit with a dear friend. I will be returning to sample their main courses, so I will hold off on reviewing their food till then.

Always good food, small plates are great loved the salmon and prawns, the squash soup was tasty but I thought that some crackes or a piece of bread would have completed the dish, they do make their own crackers, should had asked for a little cracked pepper as well would had finished the dish. That was my fault, never be afraid to ask for anything there they are very happy to serve you. Love this place. Rob thanks for stopping by our table was nice to see you. Great server. Be back soon.

This hidden gem is not what you'd expect to find in a strip mall.
The food and service were amazing and wonderful (but very pricey wine pairings). A great spot for a date or fun Thursday night out. If you're looking for a cozy spot with impeccable food; charcuterie and small bites to beautiful hand made pasta and braised meats, this place will not disappoint. Check it out!

Great food and ambience. Highly recommend the sirloin burger. Monday nights have half price wine on bottles under $40 and they have a great wine list! Alan is a great waiter and appreciate seeing the owner checking in once and awhile on how we're all doing. We've been there many times and for sure will be back!

Great place to share plates among friends. The server was well-informed about celiac options, the food was varied and tasty, and included a variety of flavours. It was very loud at the beginning, both voices and music, but an after-work bar crowd dwindled and then it was somewhat better.

Our Ladies Group loved the restaurant! Our waiter was THE BEST ...couldn't say enough good things about him!! The only thing I would give a negative comment to is the noise level...when we arrived at the restaurant there were four other people ...it did not take long for the restaurant to be filled up ...hence we found that we were yelling at the ladies at the other end of the table because of the nose level!! Great for the restaurant that it was full and busy!!! The Glass Monkey was recommended to us and all of us would definitely recommend The Glass Monkey to our friends!! Loved The Glass Monkey!! Thank you for a great evening!

I have eaten at the Glass Monkey dozens of times since it opened and I've introduced many people to the restaurant. I've never been disappointed. Rob and Janine are fabulous hosts and the service is always good. The food is absolutely yummy and the wine list is superb. I'm delighted to have this gem in my neighbourhood!

My spouse and I had a wonderful date night thanks to our server, Jordan. We were well taken care of all night but also given our privacy. Not only did we enjoy our delicious meal, we loved being able to have quiet conversation. The Glass Monkey is definitely a spot I would recommend to friends and family. The food is amazing and at a great price. Thank you for an amazing experience!

Great place to watch a game or just have a drink with the wife. We sat at the bar and couldn't have had a better experience. From the moment we walked in the door we felt like we were the most important guests. The bartenders were great and fun to chat with. The burger and the pizza were excellent and I'd walk across hot coals to have the bread pudding!! Well definitely be back!

Perfect place to go for a casual dinner - warm and inviting and lots of choices on the menu. It seems very popular, even midweek (a good sign) but there were plenty of servers. We have already recommended it to friends and will make it a regular.

Just under whelming. A "gastro-pub" with a good selection of drinks (but no local beer in tap???) and just an underwhelming menu. Was very excited about the meat/cheese combination plate, but the smoked salmon and pate were not the best choices for board. Just a touch disappointing after hearing good things.
