“The satay was very tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

My friend and I went for brunch to celebrate birthdays at Glowbal Grill. One of the dishes we ordered was the satay platter and we were not disappointed at all, everything was very tasty. I also had the chowder and it was really good. The place was packed, but not uncomfortable. The service was good. We had a very nice time. There is another friend having birthday, I think I am coming back soon.

“Just what we wanted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We ate at Glowbal last Tuesday evening (May 28th). The steaks were fantastic, and we both really enjoyed the sides of asparagus and onion rings, Shared the cheesecake for dessert. We thought it was good value for money (CAN$107 + drinks) for the two of us. Service from Glenn was very friendly and efficient.

“party restaurant, food unnecessarily greasy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Decor reminded me of the boom-chic-a-boom atmosphere of clubs when I was in university in Montreal. So felt dated. Not Less Than Zero dated. But that might have been better.
Our group of 8 had fun, fuelled with good wine. Sampled tons of stuff, some items were unnecessarily deep-fried.
And I pulled the shortest straw and had to pay for the group. Ouch!

“Nice night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We had a really nice dinner here for a recent stay in Vancouver. Our server was great, the host had our reservation ready to go. A few dietary concerns were accommodated without issue. We shared several items and were surprised how affordable it was for dinner.
