Great for us

So we brought our Vancouver visitors here for lunch and we were happy with location choice. They have a great outside patio area with heaters for our current unpredictable weather. Love the view of the gorge waterway from here, and lots of interesting water traffic to watch, canoes, kayaks, paddle... read more

Not your average pub and grill. Very flavourful and creative food. The salad had pear and nuts in it, with a really nice dressing. My friend and I each had the pizza combo, with different selections for the pizza. I also had a local beer on tap, Tasman ale. Sat outside in the sun, sheltered from the breeze by the... More

I called in with a last minute booking for a very large party of visitors from out of province, and these guys were so accommodating! The atmosphere was really great, the service fantastic, and the food was spot on. Really, really (that's at LEAST two reallys) must recommend this as a must try. We had a great time! Thanks Glo!

Went to enjoy this stunning waterfront location. Checked in a front desk, told we would be 60 minutes, waited at the bar for 90 before we finally realized 10 groups or more that had arrived after us, had been seated. Went to the front desk. "Oh we forgot about you!" While sitting at the bar, one of the young girls... More

This restaurant/pub is tucked away in a part of town that people tend to forget about. It has a lovely outdoor seating area (with heaters to keep warm) and great views over the Gorge Waterway. The food is nicely presented and good value. Their happy hour is great with lots of tasty appies and drink features. Great spot for a... More

This used be the spot to go for drinks, appy's and a fun vibe. Not even worth my time to list the negatives. Don't waste your money or a nice afternoon on this place now. Snarky staff and stale food. Such a shame, this used to be a super fun place to go.

Hi Lyssa, Sol here from Glo. I'm sorry to hear you're not a fan of ours anymore! Drinks, appies and fun vibes are our goal and if we've left that behind it's certainly not what we want. We've been making a lot of changes this year with a lot of new menu items and appies, like the Thai Curry Satay... More

I was out with 2 other locals and a friend from Vancouver. All 4 of us are sales professionals. We were informed at the door there was about an hour wait for table and left our names and sat at the bar. An hour rolls by and they had seated about 7 tables. Our group spoke up and it appeared...

Hi Jax, Sol here from Glo - sorry to hear about our poor service when you visited (Courtney excepted!) It's unacceptable to me that you were hung out to dry at the bar and your orders were forgotten, and I'm extremely glad to hear that Courtney was able to salvage the experience for you. In fact, she was recently promoted,... 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.

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. I have had a few bad... More
