The Glass Monkey Ratings and Reviews
I was looking for a romantic dinner place for Valentine's Day. The Glass Monkey pleasantly surprised us. When my girlfriend and I arrived, it was so busy that we thought the service and the food might just be average. However, much to our surprise, the food was scrumptious. We ordered a Hawaiian pizza and a lamb curry. I was amazed by the lamb curry. I come from India and I can bet the lamb curry at the Glass Monkey is one of the best lamb curries I have had. They even have a Butter Chicken meal on the menu and while paying the bill, we learned that it is one of the favorites. The Hawaiian pizza was really good too.
The service was top notch. The ambiance was cozy and romantic with candle lit 2-person tables everywhere. The owner/manager made an effort to personally greet all the guests and check in with us if we need anything. Overall, a great experience. I highly recommend checking out this place :)
My husband and I go to the Glass Monkey specifically for their butter chicken. It's absolutely divine. As we went on Valentine's Day we also had the fish tacos to start from their Valentine's menu and they were delicious as well. Service is always great, good is always great. We've been there numerous times, haven't been disappointed yet!
Food was ok, nothing special. It seemed very rushed. We even ordered twice and were out the door in 45 min. I also suffer from a food allergy and it did not feel as if they took it seriously. I asked the waiter to ask the chef if the pork tacos would be ok and we had to ask again to get an answer only to find out the waiter already ordered them. Ok restaurant for a quick bite but definitely not for a romantic night out.
Went for Valentine's day and was really busy as you can imagine, but having a reservation, we got in and seated right before it picked up and the host was friendly and so was the server. Food was really good, aside from trying to not be a kid at heart and get wings and fries. The drink menu is huge and hard to make up a decision on what to drink. All in all really fun, and would go back to try all the different beers.
The restaurant had nice ambience and would be great for group. We got seated right away. The service was a little bit on the slower side but acceptable. The food however was a bit disappointing. We order a bunch of small plates to share and they were brought pretty promptly. The beef capacio was flavored a bit weird and almost tasted bitter. The chicken thigh yakitori was a bit burnt on the edges. The salmon was too salty. The meatballs were good but nothing special. The caesar salad was pretty good. I've heard good things about this restaurant and that's why we visited but was not impressed by the food and likely won't be going back again.
We enjoy the Glass Monkey as we live in the area. It's nice to have a unique place in walking distance. Each time we go, we choose 5 of the shareable items. It's fun to try all the different appys that they have. We also enjoy the charcuterie and cheese boards. The wine is great and there are many choices for beer.
Stopped in Monday to take advantage of the discounted wine. This was actually one of the better meals we've had in Edmonton in a long time. All the food really hit the spot and our server was outstanding. Look forward to coming back.
Great place! Friendly, inviting staff. Really great that the owner Rob makes a point to visit every table and chat. It was my boyfriend's birthday and and they really acknowledged it. Great food, service, music and ambiance. Definitely recommend and definitely going back!
Nice evening but food was so so.... The Charcuterie board was very limited with meat and cheese. Lots of food but it is nicer to have a few different varieties.
The salmon was nice but the veggies were under cooked. Nice selection of wine.
Can be noisy though when all tables were full.
Amazing chili. No wonder it won awards.
Good wine list, but pricey by the glass selections.
Had reservations but was seated at a small crowded table in a corner by kitchen. In their defense, they relocated us at our request.
Server seemed a little rushed, and neglected to ask if my wife wanted cheese and sour cream on her dish. She's allergic. It was remedied, but took a little while, during which time my dish cooled on the table.
Friendly and caring service.
Glass Monkey is one of my favourite restaurants in the city - it has a casual, lovely atmosphere, great service, fantastic food as well as great selection of beer and wine. What could seem as a simple food (burger and fries) was executed to perfection; fries were crispy on the outside and soft and on the inside; burger was made to order and it was juicy and succulent. My husband had a duck confit, which was a special for the night and he has enjoyed every last morsel. I will be back for sure for any occasion.
Awesome meal for a special occasion of my mother in law going back home to Scotland. Thought the burger was superb and the butter chicken was the best I've tasted. Quickness of service was great too. Great options for kids as well. They seemed to enjoy themselves. Feel it would be great for a drink watching sport too. Special mention to Eric who's service was impeccable
We checked out the Glass Monkey due to its location for New Years Eve and the free parking. When we saw the reviews in Open Table we knew we had picked the right place. The food was great. The service was impeccable considering it was New Years Eve and it was super busy! The owner came and checked to see if everything was okay! Would definitely return! Love family owned businesses!
I've been to Glass Monkey 5 times now, and I've always loved it. It's a hole in the wall spot with great food (real portions) and a solid drink menu. This last visit was my least favourite only because we had to sit by the door (it was busy) and every time someone came inside the -25 cool air blew in. However, the 4 other times I've been have been outstanding- no complaints!
A very enjoyable evening for ten. One person ordered the Margarita pizza and was disappointed that it did not come with tomato sauce. The waiter brought some and all was well. The salmon and shrimp were cooked beautifully. Others enjoyed the BBQ chicken and of course, the butter chicken. Service was excellent and just right. Room can be noisy, depending. Decor was smart and attractive.
