In today's age of social media and online review sites, how many of you think this is a good business strategy? I innocently parked in one of Global Restaurant's reserved parking spaces today while visiting a tenant at 3440 Toringdon Way

Pros: No pros

Cons: Back in a very dark corner of a parking garage. Prices are very high. Portions are small. Very cramped place inside.

This restaurant is for those who want something different and great food! Very intimate atmosphere...good for a night out for two. Very modern, but, quaint. Everything we tried was excellently prepared and presented. Sea Bass was

My husband and I were really excited about trying Global after reading all of the great reviews......Did we go to a different restaurant?
Our food was terrible, I couldn't finish my starter or main course and my husband struggled through

WORST food we've had in years and the most expensive! The meat, lamb, we had was presented like a bowl of mush. Not only did the sauce taste bad, but the meat was OLD!! Old rotting meat!! The She Crab soup had dryed ground up freezer

Global is a great addition to the Charlotte food scene. I love the fact that even though their food quality and ambiance would permit them to be snobby or arrogant, they aren't! They are truly attentive (but not overbearing) to every customer and the food delivers. I love the fact that the chef visits our table every time we're there--great touch. We've eaten at other so-called "great" restaurants in Charlotte and we've been ignored and underwhelmed. Global delivers on every front. If you haven't visited, make a reservation today!

If you haven't tried Global Restaurant Bar & Lounge yet, you are missing out! My husband I had dinner there this week for our anniversary and were just amazed at our experience. The wine list is extensive, the ambiance and decor tops most that I have seen and the food is incredible. You HAVE to try the scallops - we got them as an appetizer and I could eaten lots more! The chef came out and greeted the patrons (when is the last time you have seen that??) and our waiter was very attentive to us, despite a party of 10 that was seated at the same time as we were. I can't thank them enough for treating us special that evening, which includes a complimentary glass of champagne. Check them out - easy drive from anywhere in Charlotte and folks in Ballantyne....it's right in your backyard!!!

Pros: ambiance, decor, wine list, staff

Overall, I like this restaurant, but I think a few things could be improved. We went to Global for my husband's birthday on a Saturday night and even though I had made a reservation in advance, we were seated in the back at the smallest available table near the area where the waiters were coming to and fro. This was disappointing. The service was adequate, but not superior and at this price point, it needs to be superior. That being said, the food was delicious. I had the lamb, which was very good and my husband had the paella which was excellent. The cocktails were well made and the wine list was very good.

I recently ate at Global and found the staff very rude. STAY AWAY!!! the Staff seemed very annoyed when asked for common tasks, refilling our water glasses, extra napkins, and even our check. I will not go there again

Quickly became one of our favorite restaurants. The food is exceptional (I'm a vegetarian so I stick to mushroom ravioli - the best I've ever had - but my husband has tried a few different entrees with great results), the waitstaff are very nice and remember you, and the chef has always come by to our table to ask us personally how we are enjoying our food. They have a great wine selection too. Don't miss this great restaurant just because of their location!

Family owned and a little pricey, but well worth it. You will get good service and they will definately get to know you. They staff is wonderful, and it is moderately decorated. The focus is on the good food and service. A must try restaurant.

Global restaurant, in my opinion is the best restaurant in Charlotte. It is classy and the food and service is good. It is owned by a husband and wife who also do the cooking. Yes it is a little pricey but it is worth it. You get nice portions and you are full before you leave and still have plenty of leftovers.

This is my first review. My fiance and I discovered Global a year and a half ago at complete random. We were driving around area and saw a sign for Global. We were intrigued. We figured we couldn't go wrong with a restaurant obviously inspired from all over the world. I knew it was going to be on the pricier/nicer side, and we were obviously dressed like we randomly chose this place, but the wait staff (including the owners) treated us first class. We've been greeted and talked to by the owners every time we've been there for that matter. I stress this, because that is extremely rare in Charlotte where everyone has some sense of entitlement. Our waiter, Steve, was absolutely incredible. He has been our waiter for every visit.

I'm a vegetarian, and I've always had something different each time. They do a great job of making their menu seasonal. Everything we have had has been absolutely top notch. We always come out saying, "That's the best thing I've ever had." The staff (Steve in this case) is incredibly knowledgeable of the wine selection as well. And the desserts, wow. I always hate leaving there knowing I'm going back to my cooking.

I know the issue of price v. quantity v. quality is mentioned with this restaurant, but here is how I see it. The portions are incredibly well made with amazing ingredients. The food is meant to leave you comfortable, not stuffed. For my income bracket, Global is a place to visit for special occasions. I always get my money's worth. I'd prefer a smaller, healthier portion where I pay more and I'm left incredibly satisfied to a larger, cheaper portion that is nowhere nearly as good of quality.

I honestly think Global is the best restaurant in Charlotte, and I have been to my fair share of high end restaurants. The location isn't the best, but there is ample parking. Overall this is a must visit restaurant, especially for special occasions that require an intimate atmosphere.

Cons: location

We've been to Global a couple of times, and the service is great, especially the bartender. For the most part, we have enjoyed the food, except for one time my wife's pasta tasted like dishwasher detergent, but stuff happens.

This is another example of a restaurant that is trying to get the maximum amount of money they can for each dish they prepare. If restaurants like this only realized, that instead of offering $15-25 dishes, but rather $10-15 dishes, they would actually make more money. Not only would they see more people come through the door, but they would also get more word of mouth. Plus, with every person you seat, that is just that much more money you make on drinks, etc. This is why a lot of restaurants tank. They try to get as much as they can.

Don't get me wrong, the food is good, but the value isn't. Not to mention the location is horrible. It's in the back of a business park away from the retail center, so unless you get a glimpse of one of his signs or someone tells you about the place, you'll never see it.

Global Restaurant in Charlotte, NC - Global is a fine dining restaurant in the Ballantyne area, just off I-485 and Johnston Road. This amazing restaurant features food from all over the world (hence the name). Bernard is the chef and owner. He was trained in France and has a gift for creating unique and spectacular dishes that delight the palate. His wife and co-owner, Shannon, has a wonderful command of their extensive wine list and an instinctive flair for choosing that special wine that will best compliment whatever food is ordered. The presentation of the food at Global is as special as the food itself. Bernard has a flair that rivals the best restaurants in the world, yet Shannon and Bernard bring to Global the warmth of dining in the home of a close friend. This restaurant is truly a gem in Charlotte?s crown and I hope you will add it to your list.

My husband and I had guest from Canada a couple of weeks ago and decided to try Global. What a hidden jewel this is! The food was superb, and the service was excellent! The chef came to our table to ask if we enjoyed our meal. Never have we had treatment like this in Charlotte. Our guests who dine in fine restaurants regularly were equally as impressed. I highly recommend this restaurant. Go and decide for yourself. I don't think you will be disappointed! Everything we got was good.

Pros: Nice ambience, Good wine list, great dessert and after dinner drink menu

Wonderful atmosphere and decor; food is superbly served in a very quiet atmosphere. Having only 14 tables makes it an intimate experience. More then competitively priced with ostentatious restaurants in Charlotte. I highly recommend it.

Pros: A little bit out-of-the way- but easily accessible, and parking is right at hand. Very friendly wait staff.

Cons: Can't think of any

Great restaurant experience in intimate setting! The service was very good, and the waiter we had (Steve) made excellent recommendations. Portion sizes were perfect - not too small and not too much that could be wasted. We had the duck and tenderloin, both which were phenomenal with the flavors and accompanying sides. Good wine list to choose from as well. Will highly recommend Global to friends looking for good food and good service with warm and intimate setting!

Shannon & Bernard Brunet are the owners of Global Restaurant & Bar. We have used them twice for a luncheon for 25 or more guests. We negotiated the rate up front. The portion was adequate for the rate. They had to close their doors for lunch due to the lack of patrons. Therefore, we tried to help them out by providing them some "lunch" business to help them get their restraurant started. After being loyal clients, Bernard, the chef, told us it was no longer "worth his time" to service us and our clients.
Following is the letter that I sent to Bernard, following his arrogant dismissal of our business. I will not suggest this restraurant to my friends

I?m so sorry to see to hear from Bernard that our business was not ?worth his time.?

I would think any restaurant that?s just getting started would be elated to have 25 patrons sitting in your restaurant. And to make it worse, we have given you our business in the past. Shannon had agreed to take care of us as always, even if you decided to only be open for dinner. Now, you are going back on your promise and your word and insult us in this way.

I always train my new agents that I never turned down a piece of business as an agent, even if it were a $50,000 mobile home. The referral business that I got off of that one piece of business more than made it ?worth my time.? Plus, I treated every one with the same level of respect and provided the same level of service, whether it was the $50,000 mobile home or a $1 million plus home. It sounds to me that you have adopted a ?prima-Donna? attitude and it really makes me sad and disgusted at the same time.

I do not like this approach to doing business and I cannot in good conscientiousness recommend to any of my friends, co-workers, etc. to ever set foot in your restaurant again. I find your attitude to be very insulting and very arrogant. I think with this attitude it?s only a matter of time that you see yourself closing the doors for good.
