Globe Bistro

We do local cuisine. Just minutes from downtown, Globe Bistro anchors the entrance to the Danforth and offers a unique farm-to-table experience with something for everyone. In the front wine bar diners may choose to have a glass of wine and a casual bite or enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail. As you move towards the main dining room, the open kitchen sets the stage for the modern Canadian menu which is founded upon the best quality fresh, seasonal, local ingredients. Into the main dining room, you will be seated in spectacular formal dining space with sixteen foot vaulted ceilings. Knowledgeable wine aficionados and the uninitiated both thrive in the selection from our wine cellar including numerous wines by the glass. Friendly, professional service will delight all of our diners. Our private dining room offers a customized experience to please any group with seating capacity of over fifty. The sexy rooftop patio offers a serene getaway in the heart of the city. Think global. Eat local.

"The Chef's Tasting Menu is outstanding, along with the servers' attention to detail at every step of the way. We had an incredible meal only complemented by an outstanding array of wines and a wonderful waitstaff. 5 Stars all around."

"Husband loved 6 course meal. I didn't like Bison, elk, partridge or duck. They were very accommodating to make substitutions. Otherwise great meal. If your looking for plain meal it might not be right for you."

"4 out of 5 dishes we tried were excellent. The falafel based main lacked distinction and was a bit mushy, but the rest were really good. Of note was the Steak Tartare and Elk Loin. Delicious..."

"The service, atmosphere and value of the food were all quite good. I left full and I believe that my date and I got out money's worth. The food itself was excellent and I would highly recommend what I had to others. I have been to a great many number of 'licious' restaurants before, both summer and winter, and while the experience wasn't absolutely perfect (if I were to nitpick, there were small things here and there, but nothing really too bad at all), it would certainly rank in the top ten. For me, it is a special occasion restaurant but for others, it may be more regular fare. Cheers."

"The food was truly amazing . even though Winterliscious we went rushed and stayed to enjoy a second bottle of great Ontario wine. We started with a dozen oysters on the half shell. Haven't had better, even at Oyster Bar's downtown. The only problem is choosing the appetizer and main they're all amazing, we shared bites ! The creme caramel was beyond description, that I wouldn't share not even a bite it was sooooo good. We'll definitely return"

"We came for Winterlicious and had a wonderful evening. Delicious food and fabulous service. It was classy and sophisticated, but also very relaxed and comfortable. Not pretentious in the slightest. Very creative menu with visually appealing plating. We would definitely return for a special occasion!"

"Me and my friend went there for a winterlicious dinner last week and we ordered flank steak (rare) as main dish, but we couldn't even finish our dishes cause the steak was way too stingy. Appetizer (haddock fitter) was great and dessert was okay but not so impressive. Their wine list was pretty impressive but when my next table tried twice to order a bottle of wine, server came apologizing that they are not available.."

"My group of four enjoyed our dinner at Globe. The ambience is very relaxed, elegant but not too stuffy. The bar is dark, lots of candles, and appropriate music. The layout is a little strange, as you have dining on three levels. I know this used to be Panama Jacks, a restaurant slash bar - our table was a booth on the second level, overlooking what used to be the dance floor. I had some concerns we might experience slower service as we were in an out of the way spot, but that was not so.
The food selections had something for all tastes, although I found my portions a touch small. The halibut fritters were great, but could have used two more, they were almost the size of popcorn shrimp.
Our mains were all good, I had the bison, which was very tasty, my mother had the lamb tagine, which was very good as well.
Deserts were good too, really enjoyed the chocolate cake.
My only concern was that the wine list was all local, but kinda pricy. We wanted to try the $42 red (least expensive), but they ran out, so moved us up to the $57 Karlo, which was nice, but for $20 corkage, I have a great selection of $20-30 wines at home which are better. We were also told it was their last bottle. We did not order any more wine.
This made me feel like a got a great deal on the food, but "ponzied" on the wine.
I don't think this was intentional, but how can you run a restaurant during Winerlicious and run our of two of your most popular wines?
Overall though, a great experience, well worth it.

"I don't usually like restaurants on Danforth. Globe bistro, however, is a nice surprise. There are lots of local wines to choose from. The Winterlicious menu is impressive. The beef cheek starter was particularly good. Both the bison steak and the lamb were excellent. The desserts were also pretty good."
