The Glass Monkey Ratings and Reviews
We had such a great visit the week before we thought we'd go again. The second visit was disappointing. The hummus and pizza was bland and needed the kick of hot sauce to liven it up. We probably wouldn't have commented on this but we discovered afterward (and it is our fault for not paying attention when we paid) but we were overcharged despite asking very clearly at the beginning about the cost of the appetizers. Left us feeling cheated.
Had the mushroom pizza, burgers and fish taco. The pizza crust tasted like a cracker. There was not even a great hint of truffle flavour. Very underwhelming. The burger had a great bun and was fresh ground beef. Neither of the guests thought it was great. The fish tacos were heavy on the aioli.
Made reservations on a lark because of good reviews, did not come away disappointed. Brought my best friend's parents out for a dinner, I did not realize dad needed a low top table for his recent knee surgery, so we had to wait a little bit because our booked high top wasn't good for the knee (my fault). Service was excellent, they brought a chair over for dad to sit on and made sure we were OK.
Service and food were excellent, everyone was very happy to have discovered the Glass Monkey. Two birthday tables were beside us and they were all lively and fun.
Definitely will come again.
Atmosphere was great, very comfortable. Very friendly. Overall, food was good. The kettle chips needed something, they were bland. The dessert seemed over priced, $11.95, and was small with not much cake, jar was filled mainly with the compote and whip cream, which was unfortunate as I am a huge fan of lemon pudding cake. Staff were fabulous, and owner or manager was out and circulating and friendly with all the patrons. Was a great night out....too bad the Oilers lost, guess we should have stayed to watch the whole game😉.
Great food and had amazing service!!! My boyfriend and I are in our early 20's and don't seem to get the best service a lot of places and we were blown away with how awesome and friendly the staff were. Definetly would recommend.
After reading rave reviews on Trip Advisor about this restaurant in the old Jack's Grill location I was disappointed. The food was ok but nothing to get excited about. It was so loud I couldn't hear my friend who was sitting across from me. I must say the service was excellent as was the rum sauce on the bread pudding. But that's it. Won't be going back.
One the best hidden gems in the city of champs! Excellent service, outstanding wine menu, and an amazing menu that they can adjust for anyone with any allergy. Keep up the outstanding service and amazing food! Definitely recommended for anyone wanting a unique dining experience.
Good food but too much money for what u get. The noise level was high need something to absorb the noise. Very nice atmosphere nice decor. Lots of staff at work but only saw our witness once no follow up to see how the meal was. Saw that she was waiting on tables totally across the restaurant therefore maybe not enough witnesses.
We love The Glass Monkey! Its great for any type of nosh - full meals, sharing, or, my favorite, the 1, 3 or 5 snack offerings (e.g. hummus, olives, etc). The wine and beers lists are extensive and Monday 1/2 price or -$20 bottles of wine make for an extremely affordable night out! The owner is always on site and engaged with his patrons, while the staff is consistently friendly and accommodating. A definite MUST!
My friend and I visited on a Sunday evening for dinner and an opportunity to catch up. Our very pleasant server was attentive without hovering and was accommodating with all of our requests and questions. We shared the tender beef carpaccio as well as the perfectly roasted broccoli to start. Both were flavourful and easy to share. After a couple glasses of wine (we ordered a bottle which they corked for us to take home -- bonus) we shared a delicious, thin-crust mushroom pizza. We had hoped to try one of the several tempting desserts but unfortunately didn't have room. The atmosphere was warm, inviting and rather quiet given that it was a Sunday. We were not rushed despite our long visit and our water glasses and coffee cups were refilled promptly. It was a great evening -- a unique experience of sharing food and stories.
Fantastic food and service!
On a double date and the 4 of us really enjoyed all of the food choices. Fish tacos, Pulled pork tacos, Homemade Pappardelle (Mmmm, sooo tasty!) and Jack's Grill Bread pudding was the favourite dessert.
