Traveling through Pensacola for the night, we decided to check out one of the TA recommendations. Spot on! We had an excellent meal at reasonable prices. My steak was perfect and her scallops divine.

I'll admit it; for me, dining out usually entails either burger/fries or chicken tenders or a salad. But Global Grill forced me out of my comfort zone with it's creative menu...and I loved it! I highly recommend the focaccia bread (drizzled with a vinaigrette and sprinkled with olives and feta). Our server, Tony, mentioned that the "lamb lollipops" were among... More

I wish I had something significant to add to the other reviews, but I can't think of anything that hasn't already been mentioned. This was a rather last minute decision and we weren't able to get reservations, but we had a lovely night eating at the bar. Outstanding service, nice atmosphere, delicious food, good wine menu, and outstanding quality for... More

Have eaten at Global several times...sometimes service is not the best, but being in the business, I understand and allow for staffing problems. Notify the manager when you are having a problem! I don't understand having to declare the sex of the manager when writing a review of a restaurant. I don't understand reviews that criticize restaurants for having policies... More

There's a danger of over-ordering as all the tapas looked so interesting, but the waiter will hold on the last couple of dishes to save from yourself (if you decide you needed saving!) My favourites were the seared tuna, the lobster wontons and the asparagus.

We had dinner here with friends and it was great. Their menu is extensive and varied. We each had different entrees and all were fantastic. If visiting Pensacola make reservations and give this restaurant a try.

We are thankful to live in downtown Pensacola so we are so close to Global Grill! Our favorite menu items are the Yellowfin Tuna Tapa (not the Tuna Cubes), Brussels Sprouts, Tempura Fried Asparagus, the Rib Eye Steak, and the Mesclun Greens Salad,. They have a reasonably priced wine list and amazing, high quality, from-scratch food. The deserts are also... More

I can't express how much I love this place. I think I have had every birthday dinner here for the last 6 years. The staff is impeccable, the food out of this world and the martinis are in a league of their own. If you aren't used to some of the foods the tapas are a great way to go.... More
