Great food, wine, and a fun night with girlfriends?
We keep coming back with different friends! The Glass Monkey is a friendly neighborhood eatery with an extensive wine and beer list. All their wines are available by the glass or bottle. The food is geared to everyone; those wanting shared plates, those wanting a snack, or those looking for a more substantial meal. The food is also tasty:-) Daily specials add to the menu variety.
The meatballs were a bit on the salty side for my taste but everything else was delicious. Beets tasted locally sourced and delicious salad to share. Wonderful and attentive service.
Good as usual. We were on a tight schedule and the food came out hot and great.
Always wonderful service!
It was good we ordered a number of different plates and shared the food between the four of us.
Great food and service! A bit out of the way, but worth the trip.
Great wine list and delicious bread pudding as usual.
Food was good, our table ordered different food than I did. They said the flavour was not there. Also the portion size was terrible for the price it was a 25$ bowl of chili that was half a cup. Not recommended for the adverage joe.
Excellent food and drink , a bit noisy but lots of fun
We have always enjoyed our experience here. Unfortuately, this evening was not up to your usual standards. We're confident that the problems will be rectified on our next visit.
Had 2 of the special tapas. Patas Bravas and roasted brussel sprouts. The brussel sprouts were bitter and the potatoes were soggy rather than crisp. The meatballs were good, the best thing we ate. The mushroom pizza was average. Tried the fruit crisp that came cold. Asked for a warm one and they nuked it. Won't go back
The food was over the top delicious!! The open pub style was fun and energetic and our server was spectacular. The manager is personable and recognized me from my phone call which impressed me. My partner and I loved every morsel, including the delicious dessert! We’ll totally come back soon!
Was very impressed. Had not heard of it before I found it on internet search. Will definitely return.
Love the food always great service
The grandmas we bring find it a bit loud
It's our "go to" restaurant if we a great meal
Glass Monkey always lives up to expectations for good food, libations, fun and service. A favourite anytime for any reason or no reason!
We had a great time! Food was exceptional as always. We were in the mood for shared small plates and really enjoyed the fish tacos, Argentinian prawns, beef carpacio and the fries. Service was excellent and the atmosphere great.
The food was quite tasty and you got a good amount for the price you paid. Our server was quite nice however she did not seem very knowledgable, when I asked the difference between the charcuterie board and the combination board she had to go ask, as well as a few other questions we had she would have to go ask. And there was a beeping sound the entire time we were there which seems like an odd complaint but it was actually quite annoying.
Like the varied menu; it allows you to eat a light meal if you wish, good sharing options (charcuterie, small plates, snacks). I went with a group we were all pleased with our menu choices. Will definitely go again.
We went for my husband's birthday. The food was good but the main entrees came out too quickly. After we finished, the waitress came right out with our bill and stood there until we paid. I would have hoped for a more laid back experience. We spent a lot so it would have been nice to have been given some time to just relax. The food was good though and the wine very good as well.
A little bit noisy, but overall a great spot with a great bear and wine selection and good food.
Excellent service. Good food. Friendly people. Will go again, and again...
Always great food and service. It was too loud on the lounge side where we were seated for a dinner reservation. That was disappointing as it was difficult to have a conversation. Also we really didn’t care for the metal seats. We will go again and specify that we wish to sit in the other area.
Really pleased with the service, food, and beer selection. The restaurant had a really great vibe and tasteful decor. I would definitely go again and I would recommend it to friends and family.
I would like to see local talent perform at the restaurants in Edmonton. I think for a neighborhood pubs and restaurants that already have as awesome business and service would be great even if was only two nights out of the week. There could be single acts and or small bands three or four piece group. Being a professional that performs live music would really inspire me to perform more often in the Edmonton area!
Food was great. There were lots of variety from appetizers to mains to deserts. Service was great and the wine was on sale for $20 off a bottle. Good stuff!! You gotta eat here.
Seems like a great place for groups. A bit too noisy for couples dining at least on Saturday evening
A hidden gem!!
The tagliatelle was not the best I have ever tasted. The dried dill subtracts from the taste. I usually have pizza and I recommend it. The pizzas are excellent. Most of the wines are expensive except the house wine. There is only one choice for red and White House wine.
Great service, great food and great wine. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Food was not overly complex, well-prepared and delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. Nice ambience. Felt very warm and welcoming. Would definitely go back.
Very nice dinner with friends. We are a group of 6 who enjoy wine and great food and we were not disappointed. One of us has severe allergies and food sensitivities and they had not problem finding a nice meal. Although not greatly disappointed, all of the wines listed were not available, which was a bit of a challenge of a couple of us. Nevertheless, the server worked very hard to find an appropriate wine to serve 4 of us.
We liked the opportunity to enjoy small plates, salads, large dinners and dessert. The servers were attentive yet did not intrude. As we wanted conversation, we appreciated the accomodation in the round table.
this is not fine diningbut it is fun funky and clever the small plates are partocularly good
Had a great experience here as the staff was excellent and wine and food delicious!
My wife and I ordered the burger / fried and a bottle of wine. I expected a little more than McCain frozen fries, the burger was ok, while the meat was tasty the overall burger experience was not great as quarter way through the burger the bun was soggy and no longer enjoyable for that reason I would only give it 3 stars and that's being kind.
This is our second time here and we are just in love with the place! So comfortable, easy going, don't feel rushed at all. Love the busy vibe! The menu is excellent....it is like looking at all my favourite foods...what to choose is the problem! Love the shareable appetizers! The service is great! Wish this was my local....I'd be here all the time!!
I had been to this restaurant once before in October and really enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere. So it was easy to decide to bring my girlfriends here for a casual get together. Unfortunately, although the atmosphere was still fun and energetic and the service was good, the food was disappointing. The roasted brussel sprouts were still raw inside, the Caesar salad was boring. On a high note though, the pappardelle dish and the mushroom soup were well done. Both dishes had lots of flavor.
A bit disappointed with this stalwart on this outing. Might have been a bad night in the kitchen but the appetizer special (simple Brussels Sprouts) was undercooked and underwhelming; my special was OK but a bit over priced, undercooked, bland veggies. Will probably come back again for beer, burgers and pizza but if it had been the first time, probably not. The restaurant is generally showing some wear as well and the washrooms also need attention.
I liked the fact that we could share the plates of delicious foods!
The food selection and quality were both okay. Nothing special. Service was very good though.
We made a reservation for the patio for 18 people, and the reservation to stay on the patio was confirmed by one women in the morning, but finally they allowed us to stay there for only 30 minutes and asked us to move inside... too sad because the weather was sunny and we were already sitting on the patio!
