Pensacola is not a place you go for fine dining. Most of the restaurants are pretty average, at best. But Global Grill is an exception.

A bit pricey but great for a date night or special occassion. I've never had a bad item off the menu. I've always gone with a group of people and each person pick one or two tappas to share with the whole table. It's a great way to try a little bit of everything. Depending on the group size, I...

Recently my wife and I went to Global Grill in downtown Pensacola FL for a romantic dinner. The service is the best. The tapas are super creative by Chef Frank Taylor who actually catches his own fish for the restaurant. Staff have gardens at their homes where they grow fresh vegetables to be served. But best of all is the... More

First the good things: We had reservations for Valentine's evening for 7 pm. We arrived 15 minutes early and seating was instantaneous. We were seated and within 30 seconds a young man filling glasses with water had our table completed. From this point on- things went downhill. We were seated at 6:45 and our server finally recognized us a few... More

We had a wonderful dinner! The menu offers a lot of small delicious dishes, a sort of tapas, so we had the possibility to taste 4/5 of them. My favourite one was the tuna fish (veeeery fresh), but everything was perfect The drink a chose was a pinapple Martini and it was good too. The waiter was very kind and... More

The food was absolutely amazing! I had the filet and it literally melts in your mouth. I loved the chef made Worcestershire sauce. I would definitely eat here again. Now to the things I didn't necessarily find pleasant. First the greeter inside the door was not a very pleasant person. She looked at us like we were fools when we... More

I love Global Grill. I do I love the vibe and it has a great adult "scene". The ambiance is very good, especially for Pensacola. The wine list is very average and predictable. It could use some punching up. The staff give you a little more "attitude" than necessary. I mean, it isn't Fine, fine dining so that is a... More

We go here about 3 times during the 7 months we are here and it always a pleasure--It is by far the best upscale restaurant in Pensacola--nothing is even close--and for the quality it is not expensive. We always have two tapas and then a main meal and they are all great and so is the service and ambience.
