We ate here before going to the game and we all enjoyed our meals. The service and the food were both good. Our server was knowledgeable with the wine selection and made a nice recommendation that we enjoyed with our meals. The signature meatball is very tasty. I had the bone-in rib eye and it was cooked perfectly. Overall we... More

We went on a Sunday evening for dinner. I will start by saying the food was delicious. Glowbal has been around for many years now….and the interior is starting to show its age. The women’s washroom was disgusting. The floor had what felt like a layer of grease on it and the mirror looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in... More

We had the pleasure of returning to this establishment and having the wonderful Momma serve us again! We also had the luxury of having the entire patio to ourselves on a rainy evening and got to have extra special care on what is normally a busy Saturday evening in Yaletown. We loved the food, the music, and getting to have... More

Took my co-workers out for a ladie's night celebrating a successful week for their first time. Amazing waitress, her name is Erenee. Beautiful woman, and really knows her stuff. We were very comfortable and she carried a conversation with the effortless flow of meeting your best friend for the first time. Food was fantastic, we had the satay platter and... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and found this place for brunch. It was so unique, a very small but great brunch menu complete with tiny house made mini donuts and mini smoothies with your meal. We liked brunch so much we came back the next day for dinner on the patio. The dinner menu has a great selection... More

Possibly THE worst service I have received in Vancouver. Looking tired and dated, the glow has faded off if Glowbal. To top it off we had to order dinner three times. Still didn't get it right. The food that arrived for others in the party was marginal but left without eating after being called sweety for the 10th time. Food... More

Love it here. I have the Seafood Gnocchi everytime followed by Chocolate Bread Pudding mmmmm the service was excellent. Staff pleasant. Great wine list. My kid lives the pizza. We always eat here before seeing a concert. Location is perfect to walk or taxi to Rogers arena

I recently have had the pleasure to dine at glowbal grill with a few friends. I was completely blown away with the food and service. Very attentive and mouth watering. A must eat spot for anyone visiting Vancouver.

1. Horrible Service 2. Overpriced and gross food (mine was uncooked, and the waitress insisted that that is how it is supposed to be.) 3. Over croweded 4. Tables were not clean and lined with a large piece of paper :S

We went here as a stop during a Bachelorette party. First, we had reservations, but still ended up waiting 1/2 hour. They brought out shots for the whole group as well as a sample tapas platter all on the house. The wait was worth it. They have great martinis and the tapas is all so good! A must try is... More
