interesting tapas - good vegetarian selection

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

My husband and I love this restaurant, I always recommend it to friends. The food is fresh and flavorful, I love how the menu changes as well. Tapa's are one of my favorite kinds of foods because you can pretty much try almost everything with a friend / significant other. Even when there has been a wait when we walked... More

Creative Tapas menu. In my opinion, more of a Tapas Restaurant than a traditional Tapas Bar. I had Sea Scallops tapas that were wonderful, and Pork Pot Stickers that were just ok. Wife had fish special (Sheepshead-best tasting fish in the ocean) that was good, but just too over the top fancy. So over the top that we could hardly... More

It is just nice for a change to go to a restaurant where you as the dinner are the focus of the staff. From a short wait (the wait goes down after eight PM do make reservations for a table before that.) to service at the bar a totally enjoyable experience. The Food is global in nature with a good...

Until now I've never been impressed with any local restaurant. For good or fine dining I'd go to New Orleans, New York, Chicago,Atlanta... This place rivals these and has a very good atmosphere, terrific service, fantastic food, etc. Can't say enough good about it! We will be back and I'm sure as regulars!!!

Incredible flavors and reasonably sized tapas. The grilled lamb chop "lollipops" are the best flavor this carnivore has ever tasted! It's a bit pricey, but also has an extensive wine list and fully knowledgeable waiters. Be sure to make a reservation or you'll be disappointed.
