Excellent service, good food

We visited Globe Bistro during Winterlicious, bringing two Licious skeptics with us (friends who had negative experiences in the early years and never went back). They were very pleasantly surprised!

We dine here quite frequently and are always welcomed by friendly knowledgeable staff. The front menu is casual and full of tasty fare. Love the scallops and the steak frites. The half price wine on Sundays makes for an even more enjoyable value.

The Globe is located in an almost touristy neighbourhood known for over-rated poor quality Greek restaurants. It is a welcome exception. The Globe is a special occasion restaurant for us. It's out of our price range, but the food is consistently excellent. The decor is gorgeous, and the service is incredibly friendly and competent. The last time we went the... More

Unfortunately I had quite a different experience from most of the reviews here. Visited with a group of friends. I'd looked at the menu online beforehand and was concerned about prices but thought I would give it a shot. Overall the visit was disappointing. The setting is nice but a bit contrived. Service was good, but there was a definite... More

4 of us went to Globe last night and all had a fabulous experience! The decor and ambiance is perfectly inviting, comfortable and elegant but with a great casual feel. The staff were ALL extremely attentive, friendly, knowledgable and accommodating. We had the 6 course tasting menu which I strongly recommend. One person in our group had some challenging food...

Wow... tried the 6 course dinner experience and was more than pleasantly surprised. From the beginning on the service was excellent and very attentive. Every course was served with info about the ingredients and tasted really really great. Totally different flavors on every plate beautifully presented with an emphasis on local ingredients. Each time a new course was presented we... More

My wife and treated our relationship to the Valentine's Day special dinner. Our wonderful food was made even more enjoyable by our server, Stacey. We never felt rushed or ignored, perfect for enjoying our couple time and engaging with our curiosity about the restaurant. The philosophy of "farm to table" added to our palette experience, with freshness and depth of... More

I'm not one to write reviews about restaurants...I'm the one that reads them. This time however, I felt compelled to let people know that things didn't turn out as I expected. Long story short: small portions, taste wasn't right, overpriced. Read on if you have the time. I enjoy the Winterlicious (and Summerlicious) idea. It gives people a chance to... More

No two ways to put it - This was a disappointment. After all the glowing reviews and high rankings, I came in with great expectations. The expectations were not met. We were a dinner party on a cold December night. The place has casual chic ambience (with very au courant barnboard) and mercifully low-volume music so you can actually talk... More
