Bad service every time...hit and miss food

Have gone to Glo a number of times as it is the only restaurant of it's kind near my place of work. Not once have I received good service. Ignored by staff, orders come in wrong, downright rude servers, waiting to be seated for long periods without being acknowledged, no drinks....the list goes on... read more

Had our third visit to Glo - quickly becoming one of our top 3 best restaurants in Victoria. Last time we had seafood on the waterside patio. This time we both enjoyed the Steak.

We reserved a Fridsy night table to celebrate. Definitely needed on a Fridsy night as the place was very busy. The host was pleasant and hot is seated promptly at the window table we had requested. The wine selection was very good and the service excellent. My dinner the curry was 3/5 but my wife pasta was 5/5. They had... More

It's a simple but pleasant modern facility on Victoria's Gorge waterway, about 2km north of the downtown inner harbour. Our dinner experience left us intending to return. The food was innovative and tasty, well served and well priced. The room is uncrowded and there is a large outdoor patio. The water view interesting, except, perhaps, for the scrap yard 100... More

Delicious meals and drinks. Very nice atmosphere, lighting, music. Parking is easy a little out of downtown. Views of waterway and rowers. Service was very good.

I spent NYE here, and with the set menu at $40 it was definitely well worth the money. The DJ was awesome and the dancing never stopped, which was great, I would definitely recommend this for a NYE Party.

Glo is on the main floor among office and condo buildings in the Songhees on the water. Just a little distance from downtown, it's like being a tourist in your hometown. Lots of glass, but cosy too, there are window tables and round banquettes just behind, and back of that a welcoming bar and private but open dining room on... More

I found this hidden gem of a place myself, and I must say i was not disappointing. There was a good water view, and the environment was very present, great for a walk. Pretty close to the Howard Johnson hotel on gorge road that I've stayed in. It's definitely a great place for a date.
