I recently took my wife to Glass Brassiere as a surprise for our 2nd wedding anniversary. From the moment we stepped out of the limo to the moment we walked out the door the experience was superb. Upon arrival we were immediately taken to our table which was right next to the windows overlooking the Queen Victoria Building. Probably one... More

The look of Glass restaurant is sleek and classy and 5 star. The wine display walls are to the ceiling. The decor is beautiful. I've been here about 6-8 times for business lunches and enjoyed every time. Food is always delicious and the service is good.

We were very impressed with Glass Brasserie. Lovely dining room, professional service, and great food. We booked for midweek lunch. It's in the Hilton Hotel on George Street and houses both a bar and a restaurant. The restaurant has high ceilings and an airy feel. Big windows offering a lot of light. Modern design, sleek and shiny. Service was excellent.... More

I visited this place with my girlfriends for dessert. The first impression was very bad. I booked it online and the website shows the "let's do dessert" deal starts at 6pm (I have a screen shot of it in case I get it wrong). We arrived at 7 as planned and the (apparent) manager told us that we have to... More

The meal was beautiful the steak was just the right size and melted in my mouth and cooked to perfection. The extras we ordered, salad greens and chips were also first rate, in fact whilst... More

I had the zucchini flowers, which were nice but completely ridiculous size for an extreme they were almost a main in itself. The main I had the gnocchi, it was divine. Again huge portion though so was really full but had to... More

To me, this is almost the perfect place for a celebration. The view, the food, are great. It is a bit expensive, but worth it in a way. It just lacks something, maybe warm waiters (service is good a bit dry), and I am not a big fan of the decor too. Definitely would recommend for food though
