I have been here several times. The food has declined as well as the service. Our waitress was lovely but the hostess and servers seemed to lack training and professionalism. I do like the patio but unfortunately not enough to bring me back anytime soon. Considering quality of the dishes and price point there are better options in the same area.

Hi. I liked my eggs Benedict xvi other salmon very much, and our waiter substituted fruit for potatoes. I ordered a latte. I wouldn't oder one again. It was nice and hot but had a very weak coffee taste. I drank it, but should have said something at the time. I did mention that the latte was not good and our waiter said he hadn't tried it but there was a new expensive machine. Perhaps it just needed some resetting. I have been to Glow several times and the good is always very nice. I may not have ordered a latte before.

I had the plant based burger and my guest had the turkey burger. We both enjoyed our meals. The presentation of both meals were beautiful.

Took 15 mins for someone to come to the table, and the tuna tartar had a “not so fresh” aftertaste. However, they have a good wine selection and patio

The service ruined the night for us. Waited 20 minutes for water and to take wine order. Ordered the charcuterie board. Asked twice for bread to accompany it . Mains came soon after board arrived. Timing terrible. Scallops sent back uncooked and second time left on plate -‘server never enquires why. I asked to see the small dessert selection which is a fun part of your dining experience and it was never brought over.

Celebrated a family birthday with the early dine menu. Selection, quality and value were great. And the 1/2 price wine selection was a welcome addition. Service was outstanding. All made for a very Happy Birthday!

One problem they are still on winter hours in May! We we're told the alchohol would need to come over the table by 10pm. That's was upsetting but it was at least half price wine.

I have had brunches at Glow in the past and they have been good. Not this Mother's Day. The selection of food was poor. There were flies all over the bread/bagels. The best feature was the omelette station. The dessert was terrible - basically fruit and the melon was hard and the mandarin tasted like something I give my kids for lunch. The kiddie muffins also look like school snack muffins from Loblaws. Not what was expected and for the price paid. Mother's Day brunch has been better in past. Will not be returning there.

I have dined at this restaurant in the past and enjoyed it. This time, we went for Sunday brunch where the buffet was the only option. The choices were limited, the flow through the buffet was awkward and the desserts uninteresting.

We were part of the 2nd seating for the Sunday Easter Brunch. Service was very slow as it seemed as if there was not sufficient wait staff on hand to support the volume of people. For example, it took a bit of time for us to flag down a server to take our drink order, and the plates were not cleared from our table in a timely manner. The food was scarce with more than one occasion where there were empty plates at the buffet (i.e., the food had run out). There were not sufficient clean plates at the buffet. While I had taken one of the last clean plates, I noticed that my fellow patrons had to queue for a while clean plates.

On the recommendation of a friend who told us about your Early Dine menu, we decided to go to Glow on Friday and booked for 5.30 even though we don't normally eat that early. We were all set for the $18 3-course meal (we had our eye on the salmon) so we were disappointed to learn that this was only available Monday thru Thursday. We overhead some other people asking for it too. The salmon on the regular menu was $32 so we both chose something less expensive. So that was a little disappointing but when I checked your website it does state that it's only Mon-Thurs so it was our fault. The server was excellent and very empathetic and we did enjoy our meal. I had the very tasty Brussel Sprout salad although it was a bit large for me and my friend liked her Fungi pizza. The venue is lovely and we liked the decor. Next time, we'll come another day to take advantage of the Early Dine menu.

I took a friend who was visiting from the UK as I’d been with my husband last month for the first time for our wedding anniversary. We loved it then and we loved it even more this time. It’s so much better than Taylor’s Landing and is now our place of choice when we eat out.

Handy location and nice decor. Food was decent but not oh wow this is fab. Service needs a bit of work. Services were lovely but seemed like this was opening day/week. A little slow and not sure as what they should be doing. Our main course came out and they hadn’t removed our starter plates.

Had a good time being with good friends. But wouldn’t go back – and doubt I’d reco it.

I have been there many times for lunch and dinner but this time I was very disappointed with Sunday brunch. Service was slow and the breakfast choices were minimal. The waffles were hard, no side bacon offered etc. One of the choices of salad greens was very wilted. Likely won’t go back.

Food was great but after being seated immediately upon arriving for our reservation we waited twenty minutes for someone to take our drink order. Another ten minutes till they came back to take our dinner order. The noise level was a bit much and to be honest, the staff were not meeting the needs of diners in a timely fashion. With that said, the food was good and the server was more than pleasant.

The food is always delicious! I love their Glow salad to start and the beef tenderloin special was fantastic. The dessert shooters are always a hit with my family, as everyone gets to choose their own flavour, and it’s the perfect amount.

My first time at Glow was amazing! Food and service was absolutely excellent. My boyfriend and I shared the grilled calamari which just melts in your mouth. I had the surf & turf and he had the New York strip. Both absolutely delicious and worth the money. Would return here and recommend to friends and family!

I would be hesitant in making a recommendation to a friend.
The restaurant setting is superb. The quality of the food was very nice. The wine list is quite appealing.
But there was only one server on duty for the entire lunch crowd. And a result the service we received was very slow.
And unfortunately our guests had similar experiences on a previous visit.

With a better ratio of servers, I have no doubt you would see better rating scores moving forward.

The grilled calamari was good but the edamame was either reheated in a microwave or stale. The mains were mediocre. The vanilla bean creme brûlée dessert was good. I’ve had brunch here and the food was much better. The staff are friendly.

The service at our table was very good.
When I arrived it took some time for anyone to acknowledge that I was there waiting.
The food was acceptable. The trout a little dry.
But the staff was very friendly and trying hard to deliver. The atmosphere was convivial but the music seemed totally unsuited to eating dinner. Why have music at all? The restaurant was lively enough to not need music to trash our senses.
