Great sharing menu items....
Excellent as usual. A delicious dinner on our way to the theatre.
Have dined/had several excellent Glowbal pre-theatre and pre-hockey game dinners. Never disappointed.
Servers are first class. Menu is the best downtown. Am always pleased and confident that when I invite out of town/country friends and colleagues that I know the dinner will be first class Plus!!
Glowbal did an excellent job of creating amazing meals...compliments to the risotto chef! We were on our way to Queen Elizabeth Theatre...and had plenty of time to enjoy fine dining before our show!
Overall I had a wonderful time at our first visit. My boyfriend, his family and I went before a theatre show and it was elegant and a great atmosphere for a nice dinner. The service and food presentation (and taste) were awesome. Our server, Devon was very knowledgable and friendly with a great personality. The only thing that was a disappointment was that you can not participate in happy hour if you aren’t on the patio, which we didn’t know til after we were seated inside, one table away from the patio. Otherwise great!
I am always impressed with the service and welcome by the staff.
This time we were 3 “older” ladies for lunch who I realize are not always favourite customers in many restaurants , we tend not to eat and drink a large amount. We were given a quiet table which we, appreciated, and were treated beautifully by all the staff we encountered.
Food very good as always. Thank you for a very nice experience.
We were there for a birthday. Ordered the feature platter, the fish was quite fishy. Part of the medium rate steak was well done, mashed potatoes were cold. Our service otherwise was great but the food less than impressive for the price.
Food at Glowbal is always top notch. Whether it be seafood or steak, they do it all well. Tapas style appetizers are amazing. The spaghetti and meat balls is their signature dish and it deserves it. When we showed up, our table wasn't ideal and the owner moved us right away, even without us asking. Good value for high quality food with excellent service.
Great food, attentive staff! Perfect place for us to celebrate our birthday.. bartender went out of her way to make the hubby a perfect burnt Gin martini, smooth and delicious! We will definitely be back.
The Glowball Team delivers an amazing food and wine experience !!!
Wait staff went above and beyond. Food was tasty and fresh.
The environment was awfull
Second time at Glowbal. Service was exceptional. Food was very good. Great ambiance. Extensive wine list.
We had a nice meal on Friday. Really great service. Lots of delicious food and excellent cocktails. Thanks for taking such great care of us.
It was nice but the food took too long and they were out of quite a few bottles of the wine of our choice.
This was a fun New Years Eve dinner spot. Service initially started a little slow, but then the waitress was very accommodating and wonderful. Great food and cocktails and a cool atmosphere for date night pictures
Amazing food. Excellent staff. Great decor.
Great atmosphere, with a sophisticated guest experience. They have a great selection that even a picky food eater can tolerate. Great experience
Take my plates away when I’m done.
Friends were visiting from the US, so we took them to Glowbal for brunch . We enjoyed the little extras of the 2 Oz smoothies and the beignets to start. The Caesar Bar Cart was a hit at the table! The service was great. Food was tasty, side of bacon was rather expensive as an add-on. Everyone thought the food was good value.
I always enjoy a visit to Glowbal, it was busy (to be expected at this time of the year)service from Karen was very good, she did not rush us
It’s not our 1st time. We keep on coming back. Excellent food and excellent service.
Service was slow and marginal. Waiter did not even say hello. Poured water then walked away (we thought he might be a bus person). We waited about 10 mins before he returned again to ask us if we would like a beverage. (It was brunchtime - we were dying for coffee!). Then, when he brought it, he just dropped it down and before he disappeared, we did not realize he had not brought spoons to stir it. (We stirred with our forks). He then did not return for 10-15 more minutes, to ask if he could take our orders. Woman who brought meals very personable - asked if we needed anything more (we did not). Waiter did return a few times later to top-up coffee after meals were served. On the positive side, meals were great (altho hash browns overly deep-fried) and ambience was lovely.
It’s was a good experience. The food was tasty and well prepared. The drinks were well made. It was all good quality.
Server was friendly and knew the menu and how to handle a table service; although, he could have been more attentive to a “higher value” table on a visibly not busy night, but overall the service was “good”.
Will be back again.
Great service and friendly staff since booking over the phone.
The food is very good especially the truffle spaghetti with meatballs. Our server was very nice and helpful. Seafood palleal was also delicious. Great place for dates and anniversaries.
Great staff, great food and great drinks. I would recommend it for a one on one or faith a group of friends.
The food was ok overall, but the eggs for our 3 Benny's were all overcooked, so a disappointment for half our party
My wife and I were shocked by the lackluster food quality. For a higher end restaurant, it's hard to believe they survive with food service like we had tonight. The server herself was very new and just in training but was clearly trying and was friendly. I don't blame her at all, but our overall experience was really disappointing. It was unfortunately a similar experience the last time I tried dining here. Not sure what's going on here, especially since Vancouver has so many great options these days... I apologize for the lengthy review but I hope it helps other diners choose wisely. The appetizer course we chose was the prosciutto and burrata, which looked great but unfortunately did not taste so. The burrata cheese itself was underwhelming and spongy, the crostinis were so dry they shattered when I tried to spread anything on them or bite them, and finally the hazelnuts were rancid! Wow! Brutal. The main course we ordered was the grilled skewer sampler, which was fun and tasted pretty good in general, however the concept itself was clearly flawed because of the variety of skewers offered. When the plate arrived, some were wonderful and piping hot and others were cool and too dry. Maybe execution could've been better if it came in two courses, just my two cents. Anyhow, Glowbal, you need to up your game! Jeez...
Wasn’t thrilled about being forced to buying risotto just to get a $90 Wagu streak @ $30/oz for my daughter. spend $409 for a $250 meal. Won’t be back
Little disappointed overall
Normally a great experience at glowbal
But this time we got there between lunch and dinner because we were at the ballet
We were put in the back room and it was chaotic and loud with tables being rearranged around us
We were in the room alone and the waitress wasn’t always available
My steak was over cooked and my latte was cold but the waitress didn’t come around again until Everyone else was ready to go
I am not hard to please BUT our dinner was a poor experience. We arrived a bit early and were seated right away. We clearly explained that we had to dine quickly as we were off to see The Nutcracker. There were 4 of us. One appetizer came out quickly but 15 minutes later, 3 of us were still waiting. Dinner came out 15 minutes before we had to leave so we rushed thru our 400. Plus dollar dinner. BTW, my 50. steak was stone cold. Please draw your own conclusions...
Great dinner overall. Sat on the patio and the first table we sat at was getting drilled on. We were moved right away. Great service. Great seafood platter.
Great food, slow service, heaters on the patio kept crapping out. Food was delicious.
It’s the second time I have dined there and thoroughly enjoyed it each time!!! I’ve been extremely pleased with everything!!!
I will definitely recommend it to all my friends and family!!! Thank you very much!!!
Very nice ambience for weekend brunch. Staff were friendly and professional. Food was delicious. Will definitely return and recommend Glowball to friends and family.
First time at glowbal. Will go again. Food was great staff was attentive good service.
Saw a mouse while we were eating lunch on the top floor that ran across the room
