Although we had a reservation and seating indoors, we decided to eat on the heated patio. The staff was very accommodating and upon our further request, promptly seated us in an alternate less-busy location. Our server, Angelina, was terrific and we were given donuts and nonalcoholic fruity shooters to start. I would definitely come back for the Dungeness Crab Benedict.... More

Glowbal has the best share plates in town. So many tasty tidbits to try and savor with friends. Can't beat their wine Wednesdays either. All the food at Glowbal is consistently great and beautifully presented. This is a great place to meet with a crowd or they can always find you a cozy spot for two. Servers are always friendly...

I've not been to Yaletown for a few years, and Glowbal is one of the restaurants that are still there. We went for a dinner gathering with colleagues. Both the host and the server were really friendly, and the food was excellent. My favorite was the short rid appy and the short rid pasta. The cocktail there is also good.

Actually food was ok, but the server was not willing to help us. We asked for them for a few times but got no response..the most ridiculous thing was that the same server served another table beside us, refilling coffee n bread....secondly we had ordered 2 entrees and one salad but the restaurant put three seperate orders onto one plate.....

Nice restaurant in Yaletown, the food was delicious and the service was great. There is a patio with heaters. A great spot to dine before heading out on the town. The lamb was done perfectly as was my wife's gnocchi, and I believe there was a happy hour special. Great spot to dine and people watch.

Four of us went here for dinner a week or so back. We sat on the patio as it was a pleasant night and there are heaters out there to take the chill off. Each of us ordered something different and the verdict was that it was all very good, and reasonably priced. The service at the table was prompt... More
