The interior decor is lovely, well maintained and classic. The atmosphere is lively, genuine and welcoming. The staff is professional, polite and glad to see you. The food is simple, but with a twist that adds just the right touch to make it unforgettably delicious. Overall, it is THE place to go if you want to enjoy your meal out,... More

My friend and I went for brunch before a show. We were served right away with the mini donuts and smoothies, which were delicious. Our waitress was great. She was attentive and prompt with everything. We both ordered the salads, which were delicious. We also ordered a variety of satays. We both agreed the Mac and cheese satay was the... More

We went here for our anniversary dinner prior to heading for to the Canucks game. As we were eating early (5pm), we were pleasantly pleased to find out that all the appies were on sale at 50% off so we decided to go all out and try the appie platter, calamari and a Caesar salad. Unfortunately the calamari was almost... More

We had been looking for somewhere in Yaletown to eat, and after having an amazing meal at Black and Blue the night before we though same company, same quality. Oh how we where wrong. My girlfriend and I ordered a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, which was awful - it was clearly cheap or was just very old, either way you... More

We went during happy hour and it was amazing value, I will definitely be going back! There are so many places in this city where the crab cakes are deep fried (aka ruined), but at Glowbal it is massive and pan seared. One of the best I have ever had. They will be seeing me again.

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...
