Didn’t get the style of table I thought I reserved. Seats are uncomfortable at the tall tables. Ordered rye and coke... they had no rye whiskey. Ordered deviled eggs... not the traditional style.
Sat at the bar to watch the Raptors game, nice wine and a light supper.
Noisy noisy noisy! Need some baffles to mitigate the noise. Food was okay but pricy. Drinks were pricy too. Service was adequate.
This place never disappoints! Excellent food, wine and service, $20 off bottles on Mondays. Can’t beat that!!
It was a nice place but very small portions for what you paid. The server was hard to understand.
I can’t recommend this place. Poor food quality ‘nuf said.
Another great evening for our family of 4.
Game of Thrones was on in the bar and sitting in the back part of the restaurant the noise level was extremely high and found it difficult to talk and hear people at your own table
One of my most favourite places to eat in Edmonton!
Excellent night. Attentive and friendly staff. Enjoyed the great food and drinks very much.
It may be a different experience without kids. We brought our two children under 7 for an early supper (5:30). The food was fine, but we ordered, “Two small glasses of milk,” obviously for the children and were charged $5.50 per glass. That’s $11 in milk?? It also seemed to be a problem to share one order of ice cream into 2 smaller dishes for dessert for our kids, as the regular serving was three scoops, we were told. Portioning one and a half scoops shouldn’t be that hard. Our girls ended up with one scoop each which is fine, just perplexing why it was a challenge.
The service was friendly enough and the food good, but it won’t be high on our list for our next meal out.
Excellent service and looked after the kids very well.
Service is excellent. Food is good with menu options that are interesting and beyond ‘average’
Excellent food, good service, friendly staff. Will go back.
I had the Home Made Pappardelle, the pork was good but feels like it was microwaved as the food was only warm on the outside and cool on the inside, nothing I have found on the platter was freshly hot. My date's BBQ Chicken that was scorching hot.
Server was great, kept our beverages topped off at all times, removed the finished plates on a timely manner.
Always great food and service! Wonderful beet and arugula salad! Delicious grilled ceasar salad! Lovely rich meat balls! Curried cauliflower was great!
Fun evening watching GOT
Some of our group of 4 had experienced high noise levels at the restaurant before
The restaurant went out of their way to give us a table in a relatively quiet area.
This was greatly appreciated
Good restaurant with good food. Great service.
I met up with 3 friends for a night out. The food was excellent. 2 has specials which were delicious. I had the mushroom pizza which was sooo good and another had a pasta dish which was enjoyed. The service was attentive without being overbearing. The only drawback was the noise level. We all left with ringing ears. There is not much to absorb the sounds and on a busy Saturday evening we really had to work to have conversation.
Had a good time and definitely coming back
Awesome, food was excellent
Such a wonderful neighbourhood gem.
Owner came around and greeted us, made wine and menu recommendations, the service is outstanding.
The halibut that was recommended was delicious.
I would say go for a drink, go for an appie or go for dinner!
This is a place where it’s fun to experience dinner tapas style with a nice glass of wine. The smoked salmon mousse was my favourite. The meatballs were also something to rave about.
Love are neighborhood location, and the staff are awfully nice.. great fun.
We always have a fantastic time at Glass Monkey! Great food and always superb service!
Nice atmosphere. Not too loud but upbeat. Share plates a little pricy but not too unreasonable. Interesting and unique selection of beers. Would go again.
Staff was super nice, food was tasty and quick to come out.
Great place to meet and visit with friends with some great food!!
Went to the Glass Monkey for the first time - nice seeing that they paid some respects to Jack's Grill!
Service was really good - seated quickly, staff explained specials and respected our space when we were just visiting. Unfortunately, my meal came quite quickly and my two friends had to wait for theirs. And when both of their meals came (both ordered the lasagna) they were both cold in the middle. Not lukewarm but cold. The good news is that they rectified it quickly and brought them back steaming hot. The food tasted great so we overlooked the temp issue.
Not a super experience for our first time but would go back and try again for sure.
As always,truly enjoyable.Welcoming and genuine throughout the meal...discreetly gracious service, relaxed and attentive! This is our ‘home’ base since the opening.It is easy to find fault these days; Janine and Rob make it a rare pleasure to return and feel comfortable & satiated.
Thank you for creating a place we want to be,again and again! Cheers☘️
The only negative was the dessert..an order of bread pudding was far too sweet to eat. The accompanying whipped cream coludn’t even cut the sweetness of the pudding. Too bad, as the rest of the meal was very good.
THIS IS A LOVELY PLACE TO HAVE A GOOD MEAL. THERE ARE LOTS OF CHOICES TO SUIT EVERYONE. IT IS CLOSE TO MY HOME SO WE CAN WALK THERE.
Always a nice place to eat. Good food and wine selection.
Our evening at the glass monkey was very good. All 4 people in our party were happy with their meals. I did feel the waitress had a few too many tables she was serving - she was very busy. 3 of us shared a bottle of wine which was delicious and we were half way through finishing our meals and we had finished our bottle and I decided to order another glass to have with the remainder of my meal well after reminding her once and thinking I would save the last few bits of my meal to enjoy with the wine but eventually finished up because all the others had completed their meals and were also now wondering when the wine would arrive. Overall very good and will return to the Glass monkey- thank you
We waited quite a while for a table (we had reservations). Once seated no one came for water or drinks. Finally 15 min later our server came. Thankfully she was excellent (the best part actually).
We took our 3 children to Glass Monkey on Saturday night and it was fabulous! Rick, our waiter, was attentive, positive and very well versed on the menu. Our kids are used to dining out, and they each thoroughly enjoyed their meals. It’s got a wonderful ambience, excellent food and great service. Highly recommend!
I come here a lot, the food is always consistently great. We came on a Friday night and it was super busy, the noise level was really loud and it was difficult to talk to one another. I love this restaurant on Tuesday’s (1/2 price bottle night) and it’s a little quieter.
We’ve been to the Glass Monkey a couple times and it didn’t disappoint again! We sat at the bar and it was great for the two of us.
Based on our first visit I would recommend it but not from this last visit. Food was only adequate at best.
