Upscale fare by the river

We (family of 5) went there on a nice summer evening and had dinner on the outside deck. Just lovely. They have a wide variety of cuisines that satisfied many palates: Pacific NW, Italian, Asian, Vegetarian. For our family dinner, we spent about $100 - $120 CAD (with tip) - a bit pricier that what... read more

Glo is nicely located (as long as you don't look at Garbage Alley just across the water, so make sure you are looking in the other direction), but when we arrived last Saturday we were treated with total ignore by the staff as they got things set up for the day. Rather than say "welcome, we'll be right with you"... More

We ate dinner here and had a lovely window table overlooking the beautiful patio on the water. The decor in the restaurant was modern and classy; the service was good; DJ music was enjoyable and not too loud; food was excellent. I had the Buddha Bowl with prawns, which was full of yummy veggies, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I... More

I've been to Glo three times now. The first two times were very enjoyable but the last time was not... When I went to Glo the first time, I had a pizza which was delicious! However, first they brought out to me a very soggy soft pizza that wasn't so good. When the waitress saw this (without me prompting) she... More

I like a water view , with nice decor and happy friendly servers this place has that along with a fairly diverse menu , the weather has been above normal and we wanted to sit outside , most of the places I used to go on the water think that they can serve non appetising small portions .

Four of us sat on the patio and although the food is good it is not possible to have a conversation across the table as the music is way to loud. Obviously it is a place for young people which is a shame as the menu is interesting and the view is great it is also in walking distance from... More

Hi Robininsky! Thank you very much for your feedback. We apologize for the music volume — we do get quite a varied crowd in the restaurant sometimes and our DJs can get a bit excited! If the volume ever bothers you please do let us know and we'll be happy to turn it down for you, and we will keep... More

This restaurant was recommended by staff at the Victoria BC Visitor's Centre, and it was a great choice. It was difficult to find, off the beaten track, on the waterfront, and no one was concerned about the breakers yard nearby! The place was buzzing at lunchtime with young people eating outside on the patio (with heaters if required) and enjoying... More

Sunday brunch without a reservation at any of the top Victoria restaurants can mean standing in a lengthy line. With seniors, its impossible. Its a bit off the beaten track and having eaten there for lunch a few times on my own I offered this as an option for visiting and elderly family members. They LOVED it! Very happy with... More

Very disappointed in Glo. I visited a few years ago and enjoyed it and always wanted to go back. We had made reservations for Friday night. We sat at the first booth that faces the door and the white vinyl table cloth that the place mats sits on was dirty there was food stuck to it in two places, had... More

Dear Dallas — thank you for your review. We're terribly sorry to hear about your experience with cleanliness and service. We strive to run a clean and welcoming dining room and a messy booth is certainly not up to our standards. We'll be looking at our maintenance program to ensure things are spotless in future, and I can also tell... More

I have wanted to try this restaurant for a while. The food was varied and tasty. The only disappointment were the somewhat limited choices for a vegetarian with a lactose intolerance. Otherwise it's a lovely waterfront venue that's away from downtown tourist traffic,
