The Globe Restaurant reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Great views, great food
    SoDitch
    Dined on 20/6/2013
    Amazing views of the city and fantastic food to go with it. The outside is covered in scaffolding at the moment and it does cover the restaurant windows but you can see through it. The view from the bar is completely clear and you can drink out on the balcony before dinner. The scaffolding don't spoil anything. It does have a slightly 'hotel' feel to the place and was very quiet mid week, but still a fantastic meal out. I would take advantage of the 3 courses for £25 option, great value for money. You probably will need to spend extra on side dishes but its well worth it. I was so full I couldn't finish desert. All in all, a great night

    It was a bit difficult to find behind the scaffolding but it was lovely when you got to the restaurant. The starter and main course were all tasty but my cheese cake was not great. My friend had the summer fruit crumble which was a lot nicer. We had our drink afterwards at the bar which the view was more stunning.

  • Let down by Toptable

    Booked the table in advance via toptable, even had an email to confirm booking the day before. On arrival found the restaurant to be closed that evening.....to say I was disappointed was an understatement. The hotel did go out of their way to accommodate us in the bar. Will not be booking with toptable again!

    The food was excellent apart from my main dish was too salty, I like salt but even I thought it was inedible. The starter, sides and dessert were all delicious though and I would definitely go back. The service was also good. We booked a table a bit too early perhaps because at 7pm we were the only ones there, which felt a bit uncomfortable.

    The view of the City from the restaurant is wonderful. The staff were friendly and efficient The headline price differed from the final bill due to the extras and add ons (but in fairness the waiter did draw our attention to this). Overall, worth a visit. KM

    Food was actually better than expected for the price of £25 for 3 courses and a glass of proseco. The restaurant is actually very small but the view was nice. I wouldn't go back here to specifically dine was it wasn't outstanding or good enough for a return. There was an odd hotel smell in the restaurant like the smell of damp or old furniture which completely put me off. There was hardly anyone else there which explained the offer.

    Excellent service - friendly without being intrusive. We had the scallops, duck sald, belly of pork and veal medallion. All very good indeed. The only issue (slight) is how the service was a little too quick - not enough time to enjoy conversation and take in the view. The view is great.

    Dined on 11/3/2013
    It is a lovely restaurant, 7th floor with huge windows that look out to the London lights. The ambience is very pleasant and I did feel I was in a very posh restarant! The 3 Courses & glass of Presecco for £24.50 is such good value! I started with the goats cheese on pastry and my boyf had the scallops with chritzo, both dishes were sublime. We then both had the same main, the veal medallions, the food all read as if off a masterchef menu and the veal sounded extra complicated..it was..it was still very well made and tasty dish but the chicken addition was a bit much. The desserts were gorgeous, my soft cake had pieces of pestachio in it. Overall I would throughly recommend, excellent food, service and ambience!

    Considering its so close to Christmas, my friend and I didn't expect to have the restaurant virtually to ourselves for a large part of the evening! Waiter's poor English and lack of knowledge/understanding of the drinks options was concerning but the food was perfectly cooked, fair portions and very tasty. The TopTable deal makes this great value and its lovely if you prefer peace and solitude over busy and bustling.

    Took a friend for dinner here on the Toptable special offer. We were given choices from their Christmas menu. All the food was excellent and well-presented. Staff were nice and we enjoyed a bottle of wine between ourselves which was more than plenty. This is my second time in 2 weeks, so I definitely recommend this place. The view became a bit misty outside, but we still enjoyed a wonderful corner table, surrounded by the view of the City - thanks guys!

    The selling point for this restaurant is definitely the panoramic London views. We were fortunate enough to be seated by the window and this was great. However, the actual interior of the restaurants definitely felt like that of a generic hotel rather than a unique location. Could do with modernising to make the most of a potentially special venue. The food was nice enough but not amazing and definitely not a foodie destination. However, worth a visit for its views.

    Used the toptable offer of 3 courses and wine for £25 for a group booking of 5 people. Even though the max. booking size is 4, the maitre d' (Ravi) allowed all 5 of us to order from the set menu and provided 2.5 bottles of wine (we only drank one bottle, in the end). Everyone will enjoy the lovely view from the 7th floor, especially on a clear night. The rest of the staff are also good and unobtrusive. I will definitely go back.

We both left slightly tipsy after the bottle of wine that comes with the meal and also kind complements on the house of a glass of Champagne for the birthday girl! would deffo recommend this restaurant.

    Had a first date here at the Global restaurant and it made for an excellent choice given the circumstances. A 3 course meal including a bottle of wine for £25 per person meant that I afford to show a generous side. But then as we ordered and the food arrived we were both vert suprised and happy by the quality of it. The Monk fish and Lamb dishes were excelllent, really tasty and delicately displayed on the plate. Then there were the views over the City of London which made for a lovely atmosphere. We'll definitely make a return visit soon.

    3 courses and wine for £25. You get bottle of wine between 2, so really is gd value. STARTERS: Both tasted amazing & well presented. Goat's cheese salad a bit hefty for starter. MAINS: Pan fried sea bass was perfect. Gnocci was weaker of the two, but it was a personal taste thing as opposed to bad food. DESERTS: Not great desert menu & not well executed (e.g. burnt sugar brittle). Main reason for 4* not 5* rating Service was very....odd. Left you alone, but would be very much on hand for anything you wanted, so "perfect" in a sense. We both just felt it was very...odd. It's hard to describe. I think they were more "hotel staff" than "restaurant waiter/ress"? Overall, lovely place & great food. For the price, a pretty unbeatable experience.

    Was an enjoyable evening and the toptable deal was great value. However, they did not have our booking when we arrived- thankfully there was a free table. The view of the city was lovely but the abience was lacking. The lights were too bright and there was a lack of music which would have made a big difference. Overall a decent meal.

    Went on a Monday night with the 3 course offer. Although the restaurant was only half full, the waiter and the manager on duty seemed to struggle a little. The food was indeed quite good: I had the scallops, which were delicate and well cooked, matched by a good black pudding. My fellow diners also seemed quite happy with their starters (salmon and duck salad). The mains were again quite good (monkfish, seabass and lamb with red wine jus) although the lamb was a bit over cooked. Overall, we all found the food pretty good, the view is nice, the restaurant feels impersonal. The main issue was the service; although there were no more than 10 tables eating at the same time, the staff really struggled and waiting times were unacceptable.

    The Globe is a small unassuming restaurant on the 7th floor of the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Shoreditch. 1st impressions were far less exciting than the description had led us to believe. However, the staff were fantastic, the food delicious & the price was right. Although small, there were only 2 other tables occupied & no music (as far as I remember) so it was quiet & lacking in atmosphere. I recommend the scallop & black pudding starter (the duck salad was not so good - we didn't understand why cauliflower & diced carrot were included!) & the lamb main. The monkfish main was also good. We didn't have dessert as the portions were good enough & the bread basket was generous. This place deserves to be busier - give it a go!

    Lovely views, attentive waiters, away from the madding crowds and food was great, especially with the TT offer of three courses with half a bottle of wine at £25 per person. I also like that they dont slap on a service charge on the food bill. Love the scallops, lamb and good choice of desserts. My partners steak was very good. Unfortunately, they didnt have the Banana Tartin on the menu this time...it is delish!

    I was disapointed with this restaurant. The service was good but everything else was average. The restaurant desperately needs a refurbishment. There is an extensive view across the rooftops of London, which sounds good, however it is in truth a view of the rooftop graffiti of London. I have visited considerably better restaurants for the price we paid. Deffinately not a good setting for a romantic meal, buisness meals only I think!
