“Great beer, food okay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

To summarize, the micro and foreign beer selections are awesome, and while the portion sizes are generous, the food was not as awesome as the beer. Good value for the money, will go back. I was not to enamoured by the decor, but others may feel differently.

“Hidden Gem in the Anaheim Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Our company was in town for a convention in Anaheim. Anaheim is not know for foodie restaurants in the area...mostly chains. Luckily we found the Globe. We chose the spot because of the obviously great Belgium beer they offered, but to top that off, the food was fabulous. We started with the Cheese Board and Charcuterie platter and all was fresh and an amazing beginning of dinner. We had a combination of Happos and Entrees and of course the Belgium beers a flowing. The food was amazing and a perfect pairing with the delicious beer. Our entire group was very pleased and so glad we found a "local" foodie spot in Anaheim to come back to when we are in the area. To top it off, the owners were a delight and authentic Belgium pair that have wonderfully brought their food to southern California. We all will return as a new favorite spot in the Anaheim area!!

“The Globe Dine Bar showcases food from around the world in Garden Grove, CA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Charcuterie Platter is a chef’s selection of cured meats and pate from around the globe, with seasonal trimmings. The meats were perfectly sliced, especially the prosciutto, paper thin so it just melts in your mouth. The meats had different textures and flavors that satisfy the taste buds. Love the roasted garlic, so sweet, and it matches perfectly with the meats. An expertly sliced French baguette is the perfect vehicle to get these delectable meats into your mouth. Thumbs up, way up!

Beer Beef Stew is large cubes of beef simmered in Leffe Brune beer, sautéed onions, and carrots. The beer added an interesting aroma and flavor, yet was served burgundy-style. The sauce was thick and the beef was luxuriously tender. The Belgian fries are the perfect option to get all of the tasty sauce. You don’t want to waste any of it. The Belgian Fries were fried to perfection with a crispy, golden brown outside and a tender very-essence-of-potato inside. Once you go the Belgian way, it’s hard to have regular French fries again. Thumbs up, way up!

Tiramisu is an Italian classic: mascarpone custard layered with fresh cream, Rhum, and espresso soaked ladyfingers. OMG! Since coming back from Milan last year, whether it is coffee or Italian desserts, I haven’t been able to find anything close, but I think I have found it here at The Globe. It’s made by Chef George Anthony, who worked at a restaurant in Washington, D.C. when Ronald Reagan was president. President Reagan said that it was the best tiramisu he’d ever had. And he was right! It’s very authentic in flavor – strong, balanced espresso flavor with creamy, sweet mascarpone cheese, spongy ladyfingers, and dark chocolate powder on top. Brilliantly executed! Thumbs up, way up!

“WOW! A wonderful find in Garden Grove”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

We visited the Anaheim area earlier this month and wanted to find somewhere different for dinner. My husband suggested we check out the downtown area of Garden Grove based on something he read in a local travel magazine. We walked up and down the block or so where the restaurants and shops were located and chose the Globe because they have Chimay beer on tap (a rarity!).

We were delighted by the owners/staff, menu and food. My husband loves Belgian ales and The Globe has an extensive selection, including several he had not tried before. He chose Coq au Vin for dinner and said it was fantastic. He loves to cook and has made the dish at home, but has never found it on the menu (even in French restaurants). I had the margarita pizza which was flavorful and crisp. My favorite item was the creme brulee I had for dessert. Mmmmm.

We highly recommend The Globe. We wish we lived in the area so we could visit The Globe on a regular basis or that they would open a satellite location near our home.

“True Belgian hospitality (and beer!)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

First, I'm a huge beer fan. I love craft brews and Belgian beers. I was visiting last week with a business partner from Belgium, and we accidentally ran across this bar. WOW.

The staff was great, the beer was INCREDIBLE, and the food looked excellent...so good that we came back a second night with "the kids"....and the food was as good as it looked the previous night.

Can't wait until my next visit!
