The Ideal High-End Pre-Saenger Meal

We made our first visit to Global Grill prior to Robin Williams' performance at the Sarnger Theater. It was booked up with reservations, so we had to wait 30 minutes for 2 seats at the bar. It was worth the wait. We had a Cesar salad, a roast duck salad, crab cakes and seared tuna. It was all... read more

Consistantly superior with service and menu choices. Specials and menu are recited to you by wait staff. Of course having gone to Global and being a local, we have our favorite table and waiter Steve. The setting is wonderful, current and trendy, you can select a table in the front windows of the old building that is quiet and looks... More

We always go to Global (many times). The food, especially the unusual and outstanding tapas can't be beat. Great ambiance and never a missed step. The service is super! Don't miss the Global when in Pensacola.

My wife and I have been to The Global Grill many times and have had almost everything on the menu at least once. The food is probably the best in Pensacola. The location and atmosphere are great. For the area the prices are high. My dinner bills for two people have ranged from about $80 to $120. I would recommend... More

Global Grill and Chef Frank Taylor consistently win awards for a reason. It's great! Unique and tasty items, have food Tapas style or la carte entrees and starters. The very simple ice cream with sherry soaked berries is lovely. I'm sure their wine list is close to getting some nation recognition as well.

Global Grill is my absolute favorite place to eat when I'm visiting Pensacola! I love going there with a group of friends as the 'tapas' family style dining allows us to try multiple items by passing around small plates. They also have great entree's and I sometimes go that route when I go their with a date. The gooey chocolate... More

This restaurant has delicious, unique and high quality tapas/apps and remains our favorite go-to spot for special occasions or just a nice night out. The food is great, the ambiance is festive and the service is excellent - pretty much the definition of a perfect restaurant. Don't miss the truffled mushroom salad if it's on special - I'd buy a...
