Our valentine's dinner. It was great but got even better when we ran into the host VAHID my good friend I haven't seen in a long time! Our server (I'm not sure if I'm remembering his name Ian or zan .... tall young polish guy) very polite and energetic. Made sure we were taken care of. Overall experience was excellent and we will be back.

Went for brunch with a friend. They were very busy. Service seemed a little disorganized. Our waiter was harried, though perfectly pleasant and helpful. There was a long wait after we were seated before our waiter greeted us and brought water. Also a very long wait for our food. There was a mix up with one of our orders, which was fixed quickly. The food was good, though I didn’t deduct much crab in my crab and Brie omelette.

Overall it was a C+ experience. I think going when it’s less crowded would make it closer to an A.

Best restaurant ever. The staff was amazing and attentive. The food was nothing but the highest quality with wonderful flavors. The value is unmatched. Wish they had this restaurant where I live.

Food and service was excellent, only complaint was the location of the table. We were sat right by a kitchen so there was constant traffic going by our table that was a bit disruptive.

Our first time at Glowbal. Entrees (boullabaise and paella) were good but weren't really that interesting. Our oysters on the half shell were good but I thought poorly shucked, lots of shell in the oyster and most were missing the liqueur. Kind of annoyed that where we sat meant we couldn't take advantage of the happy hour pricing (we were there at 4 for an early dinner before the theatre but seated in the restaurant which meant no happy hour pricing). The feature cocktail cart was amazing. We had an Earl Grey infused gin sour with a smoke filled bubble on top. Beautiful and very tasty. We thought the dessert menu was uninspiring and decided not to order.

Todo muy bien, el lugar, la comida y el servicio, lo único fue que se tardaron en llevarnos la comida, pero se disculparon llevándonos un postre por parte de la casa 👍🏻

The food was good, our waitress was ok. But our food took way too long that I had to pack up dessert. Understandable though since it’s Valentine’s Day. Just ticked me off a little bit when I saw 2 tables who arrived later than us got their entree before us.

Asked for a quiet table upstairs and got it! Very nice of the staff to get that table for us. Food was great, service just a tiny bit slow but it was Valentines so obviously very busy and I assume our table was a long way from the kitchen. Overall a great dining experience for a busy night downtown!

Poor table initially but a good one after talking to manager.
New waiter poured the man before the lady.
The waitress was nice however slow service.
Food was ok. Desert small and not appetizing. 3/5 at best overall!

We had a great experience overall. A couple of young women hostesses were having a challenge working with the customer before us, but a fast acting stylish man saw us waiting, swooped in and helped. One of the young ladies directed him to take us a particular table, but thank goodness he disagreed and took us to a quieter room which was perfect for our date. When we told our waitress that we were under a time restriction due to our opera date, she assured us that she’d get us out on time which she did perfectly. We were very pleased with our delicious meal choices which were plentiful and cooked to perfection. Thank you Glowbal!

Outstanding service. Excellent food. The halibut special was perfect — seared on the outside with nice accompaniments. Staff were attentive and friendly. Enjoyable experience.

- washroom had stains in it
- no paper towel at all in washrooms
- food was not hot.. at best it was room temperature
- friend asked for coffee but we weren't asked if we wanted cream/ sugar.. when we asked for it we had to ask twice before we got it
- when we finished food we were chatting and the waitress came to give us bill.

One of the best restaurant and the prices are reasonable. Always enjoy the atmosphere and the services are great. Their buffet brunch is the best in town

For the pricing of the food, you’d expect spectacular meals. Unfortunately, the steak was very much a letdown and had not come medium rare as I had ordered. The sauce had a very strong hot sauce smell and was quite off putting. Besides the food, the ambience and service was top notch. Would not be opposed to visiting again but I’d probably try the pasta (which seems to be a city fav).

Went as a family dinner for my daughters 17th birthday and the meal and experience was awesome. Our server was fantastic, and was very personable and energetic and helpful. We also loved the table side cocktail cart with the specialty cocktails. The only reason I took off one star for food was because my husband's steak was not the best it could have been - a bit small for the price and not overly flavourful. Other than that, we loved it all.

We had to send some food back and it wasn’t comped. Bun was so soggy on the burger it was inedible. My drink was prepared incorrectly. Dinner without appies was over 2 hrs. We had to ask for things multiple time and we would have drank more but server kept walking away before we could finish talking

Trendy restaurant with excellent service. Four of us went for Dine Out Vancouver. We had both the Corn Soup and the Rice Cracker Crusted Tuna for appies and they were delicious. We also had both the entrees of Spiced Sablefish and Prime Beef Strip Loin. The strip loin meal felt like it needed some potatoes but the food was excellent that we had. And lastly we also enjoyed both of the desserts of Red Velvet Cake and Zeppole Al Chocolate.

I made the mistake of ordering the Dineout Vancouver 3 course meal with wine pairing. First a tasteless “amuse Bouche” shot of some squash soup. Flavourless. The appetizer of the ahi tuna was quite good. The wine pairing arrived towards the end. Next course some beef and vegetables. Beef was half fat, and not served to my temperature request. Vegetables under cooked. Are a few bites only. Waiter felt bad and brought me a pasta dish which was excellent. Dessert was tiny and again no flavour. Never even received the wine pairing! Maître D was very snotty. But our waitress was good. Overall very disappointed.

It was my first time at Glowbal and definitely will be back. Our waiter was very good, service was fast and efficient. I didn't feel rushed while eating my dinner. Our food was very good and I enjoyed it - especially the donuts for dessert.
