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.

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.

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.

The restaurant went out of their way to give us a table in a relatively quiet area.
This was greatly appreciated

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.

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.

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.

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.
