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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
