We came across Globe Bistro, completely by chance. It was across from the Danforth Music Hall, which was our primary entertainment target for the night.
We had no expectations for our visit to Globe. We simply wanted to grab a quick dinner, and then head off to the show.
To our surprise, Globe scored a 5 in every evaluation category. Everything was simply great!
Having been a restaurant supplier for 35+ years, I can be a pretty tuff critic. But I never tire of telling the world when someone does a great job.
Hopefully this review is helpful, and that your visit is every bit as delightful as ours.

Food was absolutely delicious! Server was attentive. Loved that we were able to bring in our own wine. Could have used different dessert options, but I'm sure they rotate. This was our first visit to Globe. We will definitely go back.

Welcoming and that set evening off to great start. The experience was excellent. A properly handled slight delay in one course was so much appreciated. Will return soon.

We go to Globe on Sundays regularly for their fabulous brunch and half-priced bottles of wine. We love this spot, the service, the food... it's an absolute gem.

Our server (Becket I think his name was?) was FABULOUS - very, very knowledgeable, joked around with us, was incredibly attentive, and deserves recognition for being all around awesome. The food itself was also amazing - we got the paired chef's meal, with many different courses, and every single one of them was outstanding. This is our new 'celebration' meals spot!

Food was hit and miss. Starters (green salad, scallops) were decent, for what there was of it. Very little value considering salad was simply green leaf lettuce and scallops were 3 mini pieces... good flavour though. Mains were better - cod was excellent, barbecue plate was tasty though a misnomer as it was deep fried wings, pan fried sausage and smoked pork.

Server was obviously new to the industry and it reflected in his service.

Overall poor value, wouldn’t return.

We enjoyed dinner & cocktails al fresco @ Globe Bistro’s rooftop patio - what a lovely spot! An oasis in the city - and a delicious meal. We loved the birthday cake ice cream sandwich for dessert!

Hadn’t been for lunch before, only dinner. Lunch was perfect! We are so lucky to have the Globe Bistro in our neighbourhood! We had the Chef’s plate which was pork loin and we paired it with the Malivoire Pinot Gris. We sat at the front of the restaurant and people watched, the front windows were open, it was a delightful Friday lunch.

Checked out Globe Bistro for Summerlicious 2019. The service was fantastic, as staff were very attentive and kind. For apps we had the elk tartare, which was tasty and the shrimp fritters, which were also tasty but a bit on the oily side. The steak was a bit small and cooked medium-rare, although it was a bit dry. The cajun chicken legs were tasty, a bit fatty though and we didn't really enjoy the grits. Dessert was probably the weakest of the three courses. Not sure what the regular food items are like, but for Summerlicious it was all quite mediocre.

It's a bit pricy for what you get. There was only 11 server waiting on the tables for the whole patio level so at times you have to wait for service.

Love this neighbourhood gem. Staff are always welcoming and attentive. Love supporting a local business that supports other local businesses. Also fully accessible washrooms on main floor which is difficult to find.

Sat at a dirty table for 30 minutes. It took an hour and 45 minutes to get a dinner that was wrong and then an uncooked one as the fix. Terrible.

Server was great!
Our waitress told me that the burger was decedent and she was bang on, OMG !!! delish !!
All apps were fabulous as well (Cauliflower and Oysters) and Oysters were part of Happy Hour and ha;f price !
The Cod was also well worth it, and it was hard to choose an entree because a few others looked great as well. Would love to go back and try.
Sat in the front area but took a peek at the back, very cool and comfortable looking.
All and all, a great dining experience

Great atmosphere, with friendly service. IMO drink service could have been quicker, I would have been more inclined to stay if it had. Music on the patio could have been much louder, I don’t like hearing other people’s conversations, nor do I like them to hear mine. Food was great aside from the server not taking temperature for my Duck Breast, which I would have preferred to be cooked longer. Also the bottom of the tables on the patio are filthy, watch your knees!!

Overall we had a good time.

Service was very good until the dessert. We ended up waiting 20 min for it and then when it came, it wasn’t very good. It was supposed to be some sort of cheesecake but it tasted like a lump of cream cheese with cream on top and jam purée around it.
Very disappointing as the food here is generally excellent as normally is the service. It appeared as though our server was the only one for the back part of the restaurant.

This was my second visit to the Globe. We had the same excellent server as the previous time.
Food portions were very good, so much so that myself and my guest were too full to order dessert.
Our meal was at 7PM on a Thursday and the restaurant was a lot quieter than on a Saturday night. The ambience was relaxing with the subdued lighting and great eighties music.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you like western European food.
