This has been our "go to" place for the last 5 years. The food is always good, well presented and priced right and the service prompt. We live on Tyee rd so easy to get to. As locals, I find the food choice, quality and value for money far superior to Canoe and other "hotspots" downtown. In the fall and... More

My boyfriend and I love going to glo! There are some issues with the service though. One time we had several servers come ask us to give a drink order, as if non of them knew what their section was. The last time we went, the food was amazing! (as usual) but our server seemed super uninterested in us and... More

I've always been a huge fan of Glo. But unfortunately some things have started to go down hill. My husband and I love the lettuce wraps and have tried to come for them twice in a row and have been told they have been sold out. The wait staff have explained that they get their order on Mondays so they... More

Sorry to hear that we were sold out of lettuce wraps! This shouldn't be happening, and as you suggested we'll certainly be looking... More

I went for lunch with my in-laws and wife. The patio was great as always. Waitress was nice but a little slow. The kitchen must have been having a tuff day as it wasn't very busy and it still took almost an hour to get our food. We ordered lettuce wraps but she came back and told us they were... More

Hi blaze_bc, Thanks for coming for lunch and for sharing your feedback with us — we're definitely proud of the patio, especially in this weather. Very sorry to hear about your experience with the kitchen, however. We shouldn't be running out of lettuce wraps, and the speed and quality of our food is important to us. Would you mind sending...

Recently met a friend at the Glo for lunch. We were able to sit outside on the patio which was wonderful. The service was very good, food was great and the atmosphere was perfect for a summer day. There was an excellent selection of food and the presentation was also very good.

Daughter & son-in-law took us to Glo for a Sunday lunch. Weather was amazing so we sat outside. Nobody knew which tables they were to wait on - so we had 3 people come over eventually and then say "I just counted the tables, I am not your server". So after a wait, we finally got some menus. My husband... More

Hi maskedbee, Thank you for leaving us feedback! We're sorry to hear about your experience last weekend. Certainly you should have received faster and smoother service, and the chicken should have been nice and fresh. We'll definitely be looking at our patio layout and talking to our staff to make sure seating is clear, as well as ensuring that the... More

Was pleased to hear that Glo had made some changes as we quit going there a couple of years ago. As always the patio is excellent. The food and service need to catch up. We tried it ourselves and it was an okay time, the steak was overdone because the server wrote it wrong. The service was slow but we... More

Can't think of a better experience than drinking a cocktail and having a light Sunday brunch outside with a nice water view. Service is friendly and the food is made to order. No need to overeat. Enjoyed a cool and spicy Caesar with a halibut and chips. Menu had lots of selection so I'll be back. Clientele is younger and... More

The venue is set on the historic Gorge Waterway which snakes through Victoria, Esquimalt and View Royal. Avoid sitting on the left side of the restaurant because the heap of heavy metals is too industrial to be pleasant. Do sit on the right side of the restaurant where the Galloping Goose Trestle Bridge and metallic sculpture provide a wonderful backdrop... More

Have eaten at Glo several times over past few years, and it has been consistently excellent. The outdoor patio overlooks the Selkirk Water, and most tables inside have a water view.
