GLUTEN FREE BEER is not WHEAT BEER! You just served poison! Don't tell me he mis heard me when he took my order which was all Gluten free. Mindless hacks!!!

It's in the name - you must try the satays, they were by far the best part of our meal. They were pretty good prices considering the size - ample for the two of us when we ordered a mini selection. The meals themselves were quite different - my husband had the meatballs which were great and absolutely delicious. However,... More

We ate here on a busy Saturday night and we were happy to be seated outside. The food was good and well presented but I would not say very good because it was a bit "chain-like" however it was worth it for the price! The starter was very good though - salmon flat bread which was quite different. The servers... More

Stopped to read Glowbal Grill menu while walking in Yale Town today and met gentleman waiter who answered our questions then offered us a piece of smoked salmon pizza which convinced us this was the place to have dinner so we made reservation. Came back for dinner and it was outstanding along with the service and the friendliness of all... More

Friday evening at 8.00pm with a booking for four. The satay platter (x2) as a starter ($23 - for one of each of the satay offerings) was excellent. No duds and the short rib, chicken, prawn and sausage were first class. Mains - Lamb Shank ($25) was good, the half chicken ($25) really was half of a good sized chicken,... More

I went here twice recently, once for lunch and once for dinner with friends. The location is great, nice place to sit outside and watch people in Yaletown. The food is excellent! I had a salad and three satay for lunch, and the risotto and a appertizer plate for dinner. The atmosphere for lunch was relaxed, but sitting inside on... More

Great ambiance, outdoor eating, international clientele, food superb and service excellent. Sockeye salmon was the best entrees we have had in Vancouver and perhaps beyond. Nicki's service was very attentive and personal and the manager really cared about the overall experience. Highly recommend Glowbal Grill in the Yaletown district.

We ate here shortly after arriving into Vancouver after a long flight. We were browsing the menu, trying to decide whether to eat here, when the hostess offered us some homemade doughnuts. After we decided to take the plunge, the server immediately brought us a complimentary taste of smoothie. After we ordered, the server and a manager came out and... More
