Good place to eat

this is a good choice for food but not for conversation. it is very loud and often crowed. of course the more people, the more noise.

Known for their Tapas menu, this is one of my go to favorites. I had my 40th birthday here with 20 girlfriends and was treated to the best Martinis and dessert. My husband and I frequent here before downtown events and sit at the bar. Our favorites on the menu are the Brie, steak and hands down the barbecue shrimp.... More

This is my favorite Pensacola restaurant. The menu is never boring, changes with the season or chef's creations. The mason jar tomato salad is great. We recently dined and the tomato -shrimp bisque soup was wonderful. We also have our favorite selections, the tempura asparagus is an always order item. Our favorite server is Steve, he is also a reason... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Pensacola. The tapas are delicious. I've had their main courses, and they are great. But, I'd rather enjoy a bunch of their small bites. Soft shells, meatballs, quail.... Just wonderful. Service is fantastic.

The only real tapas place in Pensacola, Global Grill offers a wonderful variety of small plates. The staple blue cheese homemade potato chips and Brussels sprouts with bacon are always delicious but accompanied by new dishes. But if you want to stay for more, the entrees are equally good whether it's fish or steak. It's a cool place with a... More

I wanted to surprise my wife with dinner for our anniversary while in Pensacola and chose The Global Grill for dinner. I called a day in advance for a Wednesday reservation and it wasn't a problem; we probably could have just walked in that evening, but it did fill up while we were eating. The waiter, Tony, shared details of... More

Labeled as fine dining, I would have to disagree. Unfortunately I didn't care for the duck (entree, which had a large flap of skin/fat on almost every piece). The only thing we liked was the asparagus tempura. They were fantastic. Everything else, not so much.
