The Glass Monkey Ratings and Reviews

Booked a table for four to celebrate my wife's birthday. Staff were welcoming. Menu was exactly what we were looking for. Lots of small plates to share. Tons of unique flavours. Extensive wine list had us excited too. A tv was on to see the playoff game, but didn't make the place feel like a sports bar. We ordered a lot and had 3 bottles of wine so a bit pricey overall, but 2 people could easily dine with a drink or 2 for under $100.
I had seen some reviews commenting that it could get noisy in there. I didn't feel that at all. It was a restaurant full of people having great conversations.
This is going to be a regular for us now. Make sure you book a reservation.

We a new regulars that like to visit after our daughter's dance on Thursday nights.
Food and service is always fantastic and always feel welcomed when we come in.
A fantastic little diamond in the rough. Rob and his crew are fantastic hosts!
We look forward to many meals in the near future.

We were at the Glass Monkey twice in the past 2 weeks. It was a wonderful experience on both occasions. The food was well prepared, attractively served and the service was excellent. As a person with Celiac Disease, I really appreciated all the gluten free options.

Amazing, to put it lightly. From the second we walk in the door, we knew we were going to have a wonderful time. From the great ambiance of the dinning room to the welcoming smile on the hostess. As we sat down we were almost instantly greater by our server and had drinks on the table mer seconds latter. Now the food! I think my boy friend is still dreaming about how good the food was! The full flavour in every bite almost nocked me off my chair. The only critic I feel I could make was the portion size. If I hadn't ordered an appetizer to started, I'd probably would have hit up a DQ on my way home. There was just so much flavour I wanted to eat more! With in the 2 days since going to this hidden gem I have told everyone at my work and posted on social media how amazing my experience was and how I can't wait to go again with more of my friends

I've been here a couple times now. I really enjoy the food and service is great! I enjoy ordering a variety of the small plates and sharing it with the people I'm dining it. It allow me to try a variety of things.

Very good food, good service, but just TOO LOUD!
We have eaten here 5 times now and when seated outdoors on the patio, the experience is pleasant and more satisfying. Indoors the noise echoes and careens off the walls. So cacophonous is the noise level, one cannot hear anything from the person sitting across a table for two. We were nearly shouting at each other in order to carry on a conversation.
We will only return in patio season.

I really enjoyed our evening out at The Glass Monkey. The food was really good and the atmosphere was classy. I wish I could have tried more things, will have to go back.
If I had one complaint it was just that the server was at our table so often, it seemed a little excessive and often interrupted our conversation. But that is minor.

We had an outstanding dinner there (pre-theatre date night dinner for my husband and I). The wings were great, I had the Moroccan Lamb dish and was happy to have enough leftovers for dinner again the day after. Incredibly tasty food. Great wine and beer list. The service was outstanding - the waiter was gracious and friendly without being overbearing, gave us just the right amount of attention, and had great recommendations for both food and drinks. I didn't have room for dessert, but that gives us reason to go back. This was the best dinner out I've had in a long time.

Not a high end restaurant but certainly a major cut above a bar menu. Fantastic wine selection at what appears to be a reasonable price. We had a wonderful italian wine with the meal that made the event truly memorable. I will not forget. The owner welcomed us and helped with wine and food selection. A very nice touch. This is definitely an important addition to the Edmonton scene.

Nice variety of food. We sampled a few plates and the flavours were amazing. We were there to catch up and talk over good food, and were not disappointed. It was nice to not feel rushed or forgotten by the waiter. The crowd was diverse and the ambience comfortable.

Management takes great pride in the value of this pub. They touch base with all customers and their staff seem genuinely happy to work there. Most places are similar money. This place is s step ahead of their competition .....

This was my second visit to Glass Monkey. The soup (ginger carrot) was delicious and our waiter very attentive without being pushy. I had the special and was really disappointed. The brisket, although tender, had large bites of pure fat and the portion was ridiculously small for $23. I was very glad I had the soup to start. We shared a small, but extremely succulent, chocolate cake for dessert. The bill was $95 for two for dinner which was quite expensive for food served.

Wonderful experience. We sat on the patio had appitizer 3 to share Smoked Salmon Mousse: house smoked Chinook, cream cheese, capers
Flank Steak: asian marinated, green onions, ginger aioli
Hummus: chickpeas, sundried tomatoes, lemon, olive oil the best appies we have had in a long long time!!
Followed by Butter chicken = Melt in your mouth, I was supposed to share with my husband, didn't happen too yummy to share! Hubby had spaghetti he oleo loved his meal.
And for dessert Mixed Berry Crisp and ice cream this we did share !

Its a Monday... and the wine is half price. This cute rest., has great staff, friendly and attentive. Rob is a fun and talkative fellow, ohh and its his rest., so he makes you feel comfortable. I've been to Glass Monkey several time with the wife and kids. Never a dissappointment.

Glass Monkey always delivers - impeccable service, amazing patio and great food. This time we were going with burger and fries & vegetarian pasta, quite simple. Burger was delicious, fries crispy and freshly made but this time around unfortunately my fries had too much salt. Thier freshly made pasta was very tasty, however for vegetarian pasta lacked in the vegetable department. Pesto on the pasta was delicious, but as mentioned it would have been nice to have more vegetables (named as ingredients). This is a lovely spot and I will be back for sure.

The Glass Monkey team has done Jack's Grill (the high-end former occupant of the space) a great service. They've kept up the quality while completely changing the style of the place. This is not an attempt to resurrect an old favourite. The room has been changed entirely and the menu and ambiance are much less formal, but the food and service are still top notch. The well sheltered and comfy patio remains. A few menu items from Jack's are still on the list (the new ownership bought those rights too).
This is now exactly what anyone would want in a neighbourhood restaurant. Good fresh food, relaxed, but very clean, atmosphere, kid friendly, easy parking, prompt, professional service and a bar to sit at if you feel like it. The beer selection is broad and the wine list covers just about anything you need for a less formal affair.

We had an awesome meal with great service. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Remember. They run 3 specials all the time so don't just rely on the menu. Oh ya. Try the butter chicken. A real surprise if you like some spice.

Our group enjoyed the specials, lamb shank and veal cannelloni as well as the combo charcuterie, all being excellent in flavour, size and value. The ambience and wine selections along with the service made it a great experience. Kudos to chef and staff.

We had a less than positive experience on a Saturday night , at this restaurant due to the low food quality. I made reservations on line and was offered a raised table in the bar area , which came as a surprise. The hostess upon our request moved us to a table for four in the dining room area. Our waiter was attentive ,explained th specials and we started off with one appetizer to test the food quality. Our choice was the devilled eggs and he did explain that it was decontructed.... it was ONE egg and some toast rounds.Then after questioning the waiter on a number dishes my husband choose the pork pappardelle and was told that this is a dish made with noodles, pork and a milk based sauce. Sounded rich and special, however he received exactly 4 noodles, tiny piece of pork and a watery sauce in a bowl.Our waiter did not come back to check on our meals, my husband was starving and continued eating. My small plate of salmon had so much salt on it , I couldn't finish as well as the barley was watery. Complaints were made to the manager about the tiny portions, poor food quality and our bill was adjusted. This seems to be geared towards people who want to come in and have a quick snack, watch the big screen tv and then dash off somewhere else. We will not return as the food value is not relative to what other restaurants offer with a better ambience.

This is one of my favourite places in the city; so pleasant, comfortable with impeccable service. Their beef carpaccio is delightful, french fries first class, fish tacos mmmm, so good. I have been there several times and the food was always outstanding.
From the dessert menu I had a bread pudding (warm, gooey, sweet) and molten chocolate cake (roll your eyes good). I will be back for sure !

The Glass Monkey is a hidden gem, staff was super friendly and the food was amazing, notables being the Mac and cheese, and for dessert I definitely recommend the bread pudding and turtle cheesecake. Will definitely be back!!!
