Honestly the best meal my wife and I have had in the last 15yrs. Planning to make it a monthly outing.
I have dined at Glo four times now over the last couple of ears, both in a group group setting and out with a friend for a more intimate evening. Consistently, the atmosphere is fun and has a great energy, the service is excellent, and the food has never disappointed. I've enjoyed delicious and interesting mixed drinks, appetizers, and bigger meals. Always well prepared and well presented.
Service could have been better. But it seems like they were understaffed. Food and drinks were fab!
I went for a birthday, and the service was amazing. We got free refills and lava cake, too!
We went for our anniversary. The food and the service were both excellent. Delicious food. Outdoor seating on the waterfront.
Monica was our great server, food was good, quick and atmosphere was pleasant. A nice place for brunch on a long weekend!
I expected to enjoy a conversational evening with friends but the DJ night and the loud volume of music came as a surprise. If I’d known about it we would have gone elsewhere.
As always delicious food and cocktails.
Shame they automatically put a plastic straw in the cocktails though....
Great place to take visitors for a reasonably priced meal with a varied menu to please everyone.
25 percent off the wine was very pipular with our guests!
Love the food at Glo❣️
Beautiful surroundings with excellent service. Food is good.
We always enjoy dining at the Glo Restaurant - never disappointed..
Loved the halibut
Everything was great except it was very noisy. More and cheaper Italian wine would be nice. Not enough variety on the wine list. It was mostly BC wine.
We drove up from Oregon and booked for a special anniversary dinner. We were seated with a view of a trash dump. So not a great start. They really need to do something about that. But the food was over the top wonderful. We made our own fun. Our server was kind, attentive and helped round out a great experience
This was highly recommended and we were not disappointed! Definitely will return as the service, ambience and menu is amazing!
And the creme brûlée is big enough to share 😊 tho next time I might want it all to myself!
We really enjoy Glo, but not when there is a DJ, and then it is so loud you can't carry on a conversation.
Food quality and value was top notch. Hostess and server not so much.
Great experience - good food and service!
Great ambience but servuce so so.. staff need better training.
Service terrible nasty not nice and unfriendly servers got every order wrong.
Overall very good experience.
Couple of minor details weren’t 100% but I didn’t expect 100%.
Food was very good despite the steak being slightly overdone.
We would go back and recommend to friends / family.
Amazing experience, first time there and we were blown away.
Our Waitress Teressa was excellent in everything we asked for and super knowledgeable, we were never wondering where our server had disapeared to.
We had a lovely lunch at Glo Restaurant. Menu includes numerous choices. Service was friendly and efficient. Noise level was a little too much.
Good athmosphere. Very good dinner. Very but not to friendly
Appetizer came the same time as main coarse! Waiter did not even ask if the food was good or how we were doing! 20 dollar prawn pasta dish was tasty but it only had 4 prawns which is a little cheap for that price!
Very unhappy with our service, had booked a reservation for 6 people outside over a week before and we were not seated where requested. I sent 2 emails after booking the initial reservation. I understand that Glo cannot confirm an outdoor table but after multiple requests and replies I thought they would at least try to accommodate our request with some wait time. We asked if we could sit inside and have a drink while we wait for a table outside and the answer was no. As soon as we sit down we could not move to outside. After speaking with the manager, he made us believe we would be moved outside after a short wait.... it wasn’t until 2 hours later, after dinner and paying our bill that he returned and said he was “just” going to sit us outside. Very unfortunate after bragging about the patio for weeks to our guests from Scotland. Worst part of the meal was sitting inside staring at 3 empty tables and booths throughout our entire meal.
This is a very busy restaurant. We had to wait to check-in for our reservation for ten minutes while the hostesses dealt with the people without reservations. We were offered two very noisy tables and then told could wait on the patio until a table was ready. But when we went to the patio, we were told that we couldn't wait at the first table and the second table we were told that we could eat at the chairs with a low table,but couldn't move to a better table if we ate there. A manager did come and find us a table, but please BE AWARE that the patio is wait-listed upon arrival.,,so people without reservations who get there ahead of you have a better chance of a patio table. Once we were seated, things were acceptable. I will tell you that I don't usually like noisy restaurants. They had a decent gluten-free menu (but many items used a shared fryer and were NOT truly gluten-free.)
Overall great dining experience with an awesome patio. Food was great except the chicken on my wife’s burger was tough, otherwise would’ve been 4 stars!
Glo must have the best view in all of Victoria. The menu is diverse, the chef adept, and they cater to different dietary needs. My only quibble is that the noise inside makes conversation and even ordering difficult. This is partly a side-effect of how successful the restaurant is - it's packed all the time. Wednesdays, wine bottles are 25% off!
Lovely varied menu. Great service. But can never get on the patio. And it looked 1/2 empty. So not sure why that is?
Five of us had lunch- 5 different menu items- everyone happy and satisfied. We were together to celebrate 3 birthdays and the 3 birthdays each got a delicious dessert! Very sweet, personable waitress.
Love Glo! We come here for every special occasion but this was the first time sitting out on the patio. What a beautiful spot! Lovely view, comfortable seating. Glo is always busy but somehow they manage to produce delicious food every time. Try the lettuce wraps - they’re really tasty.
The food was good, however I expected more! Went for dinner but clearly this is a lunch restaurant!
Our server was outstanding, deferential, and vety attentive.
Love taking company here, it’s a winner every time!
I live across the street, and that helps in the choice. I really enjoy the food and service, and love the patio in the summer.
Beautiful patio setting. I had the tastiest salad I have ever eaten. Great lunch experience! I will definitely go back!
The food was fantastic great atmosphere very accommodating. Will be back and recommend.
Excellent meal, great service and ambiance . The Glo is our regular eating spot and will continue to be..
