“The Ideal High-End Pre-Saenger Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

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 delicious, with gourmet preparation and presentation. The sauces and dressings were inventive, and everything was perfectly cooked. The only flaw was that the salads an entrees came out at the same time.

For desert we had a chocolate cake with pecan ice cream. The cake was like a gooey brownie, and served warm, with basil on top.

Service, atmosphere and location were outstanding. We'll be back - with reservations (the "save a table" kind).

“Outstanding atmosphere-Best food - Cannot miss this one.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

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 out to Palafox.

Service with Steve is always premier and one is never rushed.
Select your tapas individually and each one is fabulous. The
tempura asparagus is one to select.

Cannot miss this restaurant, the best in the area!

“Still Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

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.

“Excellent Resturant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

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 one make a reservation as it can be crowded.
On one of our earlier visits our server messed up my order. I ordered steak and was served beef tips. The manager apologized and gave the option of taking the beef tips or waiting 15 minutes for the steak but either way it was on the house. I feel like they went above and beyond to make our dinner great. Highly Recommend.
