Nothing to Get Excited About

Went on Saturday night. Hard to talk about much of anything since it was a fairly blah experience. Oh, wait.....I thought the restaurant looked really cool. There was a feeling of privacy due to simple curtains hung here and there. Other than that I'm back to average. Food you ask? For the starter I had the barely touched scallops. Paper thin raw scallops served with olive oil, sea salt, a little garlic, or at least I think so. Me being a sushi eater didn't find anything exciting there and the presentation on a really nice but way too small plate was abysmal. Main, lemon ricotta ravioli. Nice helping of the stuff and there was lots of fresh green stuff like parsley etc...on it but otherwise....nothing of note to report. Dessert. Boy, if a restaurant can't take advantage of every opportunity to make desserts looks spectacular then they're just plain goofy. I had some sort of lemon cheesecake, or so I thought, that was actually a lemon cake served with a dollop of whipped cream thrown, and I mean thrown on the top. No effort at presentation. Smells of ""I don't care"" to me. So, with a party of 4, the general consensus was that we weren't going to head back there any time soon, if ever. Too many other great places to eat in ATL.

A little disappointing

I work near the Globe and have been wanting to try having dinner there. So my wife and I went Friday night. The atmosphere is nice and the service we received was very good and relaxed. The overall experience was enjoyable...but the food was disappointing. For the price the food just didn't measure up. If the prices were 1/2 then it would have been just OK. Oh and a glass of wine was $10 or more. I wanted to listen to the live jazz featured on Friday nights but the band was playing outside...where it was really hot. So we decided to sit inside where it was nice and cool instead. So I didn't get to hear the band which would have made up for the poor quality and over priced food. I should give an example of the food issue...we both ordered summer salads...which were very well presented and included edamame, asparagus, tomatoes and cheese on top of a piece of bread. It looked really good. Only the bread was so hard...really hard...we couldn't cut it with our knife. I just picked mine up and chewed it by hand. My whole wheat penne pasta dish was just OK. On the plus side my wife really liked her onion soup. It just isn't a place we will ever return to. If the food was significantly better we would definitely return. Or if the food was 1/2 the price we might return. Oh well luckily there are many many great places to eat out n Atlanta.

WOW

My husband and I both work in midtown, and we decided it was time to try the Globe for dinner (We both have taken clients there for lunch and have never been disappointed). WOW. We got there around 6:30 and the place was buzzing with a great casual but beautiful vibe. There was an artist sketching live models in one corner of the lounge area, and the bar was full of gorgeous people. We wanted to have a drink in the lounge, and the amazingly genuine bartender offered us the wine tasting. HOW COOL! For $15 each we got a taste of 4 different wines with 4 different--very creative-- ""bites"" of food. And dinner was even better!! Our waitress told us that they had just changed over to their summer menu, and we both loved our meals (and if you go you MUST finish with the ricotta strawberry shortcake thing!)
GO GO GO to the Globe, I can't believe we waited this long!!!

Food Is Not The Focus!

After reading raving reviews from various sources, I high tailed it to Globe. Was not impressed. Went again for a business event. Still not impressed. Again, at the request of a friend for a get-together and still no big deal. The drinks weren't bad and were probably the factor that made each of my visits do-able. The food on the other hand was not up to par. I tried something different each time and nibbled on entrees of my company. In short, nothing I tasted was tasty and lacked the pazzazz factor that I expected after all the hype. It seems that a great restaurant rating is achieved my merely having a contemporary look, a dj, alcohol and alot of people. What about the food?

WHERE AS THE GLOBE GONE TO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My family and I were avid visitors to the Globe; However, it will be awhile if at all that i will ever return after my last experience. it's now about DJ's, LateNite and higher prices, and less focus on the FOOD and attention to details. Now, when you go there the place seen as if no one is steering the ship. The bar is no place for the chef to be hanging out drinking the kitchen needs you, get back to what made this place one of Atlanta's best and find someone to lead upfront. WHAT A SHAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Overall, not a great experience

Visited The Globe recently with two others; we had been looking forward to checking this restaurant out and were quite disappointed. Menu was interesting on paper but did not quite come through at the table (for ex., my entree was pasta w/ braised short ribs and swiss chard...lacked seasoning and short ribs were dry and stringy). The manager appeared to hate his job; he walked around with his arms crossed and scowling. We had to request replacement silverware (twice) after it had been removed between courses and were made to feel that by doing so we were truley putting someone out(by the same aforementioned manager). There was a server who was doing a great job (she wasn't even our server); she was hospitable and friendly, with lots of energy. If you happen to go here, please only let Joy take care of you. Otherwise...who knows; you'll probably have the same barely mediocre experience we had. Although, I'm pretty sure she can't do much about the menu and it's very proud pricing.

Not great

Visited The Globe on Sept. 29, 2007. Wait staff was excellent, and very friendly. My husband commented that our waitperson was probably the best one we've had this year, and we eat in nice restaurant often. However... The first two items we looked at for small plates were not available because they didn't have the ingredients to make them. The items we did get were the pasta with duck (dry, not much flavor), the crabcakes (OK, but not great), the tempura vegetables (really nice, but skip the sauce that comes with them), the pineapple cake (OK, but not as good as I make at home), cheese/figs/salad (very good). We went in not too terribly hungry, and came out with an $89.52 bill and not real pleased with what we had eaten. The bill included one glass of wine for me, and water for my husband, so alcohol didn't run up the bill - it was just very expensive for not great food. There are a lot of Atlanta restaurants I like better, such as Two Urban Licks, or my absolute favorite One Midtown. They offer small plates that are much better than we had at the Globe.

Refreshing decor, delightful servers, good food

I visited the Globe for the first time during Restaurant Week in 2006, and it really blew me away. The prices aren't even all that high, so I ended up ordering from the regular menu for what ended up being the same price since I don't really like dessert. The food was good, but the experience was really what I loved about it. The ambiance was cool and refreshing, and our server was really friendly, knowledgeable, and witty. The wine was excellent, too, and served in unpretentious tumblers. The two glasses of wine and an appetizer deal is perfect for an after-work drink. If this place weren't out near GATech I'd be there more often!

Seriously Overrated

I'd heard such great things about this place--now I have no idea why. It was one of the worst meals I've had in forever and the service was nothing special. The only good part of my meal was the $9 mojito that was made with vodka instead of rum (forget the fancy name they gave it).

I shared two entrees with my friend--the chicken and the seared tuna. The chicken was so dry I couldn't eat more than about 2 bites and had very little flavor--it was HORRIBLE. For the tuna, the waiter asked us if we'd like it medium rare, which I thought was odd since the best way to have good quality seared tuna is rare. But my friend said she preferred medium rare, so I went with that. It came out completely brown, cooked all the way through, not even close to medium rare. And it looked, felt, and tasted like shoe leather. There was no seasoning of any kind on it.

The service: my friend made a reservation and when we got there we were told that there was a private party inside so we would be seated outside. We were not given a choice and no one bothered to tell my friend that outside would be our only option when he made the reservation. Shortly after we were served our main course, it was clear that it was going to start pouring any second. So, we asked the waiter if they'd be able to move us inside before the rain started. He told us not to worry, if the rain came they'd move us. Huh? How about *before* it starts to rain? So, we continued to eat, and we felt the first huge rain drop and no one came by, we picked up all of our food, drinks, etc. and moved ourselves to a table outside but somewhat protected. The waiter comes over and says ""how smart""!! We should not have had to take this on ourselves, they should have seated us somewhere else at our first mention of the rain.

Salt d'jour, more water please

It is always obvious within a few minutes of being in a ""pretender"" restaurant. The Globe fits this description to a tee. Maybe it is the lack of knowledge/conviction that you feel from your server, maybe it is the cheesy decor that just screams ""we're trying really hard for an atmosphere here!!"" or maybe it is as simple as the inedible food that is set before you. It is rare that I have ever contemplated sending my food back to the kitchen-and while I didn't do it this night, I should have. After two completely uninteresting appetizers, the Duck that I had ordered pushed my sodium nitrate tolerances to the brink of destruction.

Please, don't be allured by the many beautiful ""globes"" hanging about like deadly Sirens-the only thing they will bring you is a belly ache.

Great Atmospere. Mediocre Food. Lousy Service / Management.

My firm has had 2 happy hours at Globe and I've had a couple lunch meetings there because of its convenience to my client. Its a nice atmosphere. Makes for great pictures. Drinks were pretty good. Food was much better reading on the menu than actual eating.

The final encounter was my most recent visit when i was meeting a prospective recruit there and he was stuck in traffic so I sat with the intention of having an appetizer and a drink. Except no one would greet or take my order. And the restaurant was empty except for a couple tables and a woman at the bar. I sat there for 45 mins and neither the owner, hostess or server even greeted me. And then...when I finally thought someone was going to help me...the owner said ""excuse me sir, can you move to a table? We're about to set up a band."" I responded ""I'll just leave, Ive been waiting 45 mins."" He shrugged his shoulders and walked away... Wow...

Great for Lunch, after work and dinner

Last night I went to the 2nd anniversary party for the Globe. My entree was the duck and it was so tender it melted in my mouth. The staff was very attentive.The crowd was nice and relaxed and consisted of a nice mix of students from Georgia Tech, ladies who lunch and people who work in the area. I will make this my place for after work with friends.

Excellent Small Plates/Pear Martini's! Hip Industrial Midtown Atmosphere!

The Globe is too cool. Industrial, hip, creative small plates, and drinks you won't find anywhere else. The Pear Martini's won us over. It's just usually a casual non-dressy Wednenday night out, with an assortment of great small plates. We always start with Tempura Frittes-asparagus, green beans, mushrooms w/ lemon aioli. Then we have them bring it all on at once, Gulf Shrimp Cakes w/Mango Salsa, Chorizo Stuffed Dates, and my personal favorite, Salt Cod & Garlic Potato Croquettes w/verde salsa. It's a meal, a great drink, and good conversation, that says this is where Midtown is. Great Weekend Brunch also.

Love it.

Its always a pleasure to dine at the Globe. The ambiance is modern and stylish but completely unforced. I feel equally comfortable dressed nicely or casually. I highly suggest trying the weekend brunch - the mango lassi is a craving of mine as well as the simple ""blue plate"" (eggs, bacon, latka) done up right. The menu changes periodically with the seasons or expanding tastes and is always sporting a surprise or two. I recently tried a cod dish similar to baccalau but with medjool dates, parsnips and gnocci which was amazing (better than on my trip to Portugal!) I eat there often and really appreciate such a cultured yet cozy addition to the Atlanta restaurant scene.

Salt lick

I went to the Globe for a late lunch and had a good experience at the bar... took the two starters and a house wine offer, of course, I also had dessert. It was quick, no one fussed at me, it was just what I wanted.
Since I had a good experience, I decided to go for dinner, bringing a friend of mine. Since I ranted and raved about the starter package, we both decided to do that... only to be told by our server that the only house wines the Globe offers are a ""cabernet"" or a ""chardonnay"" (distinctively, I had a house sauvignon blanc the first time I visited). Promptly ""put in our place"" we were served lukewarm, salt-licking-good starters... I had the duck leg (which I enjoyed the first time) and the lamb ribs. HORRIBLE. Burnt, crispy, salty none moving animal parts. My friend had the olives/ cheese and angus steak?. We were both mortified.
I can't say I'll be back anytime soon... ok, maybe one last time for lunch... to sit at the bar.

watch out and do the math!!! because i will NEVER EVER go anywhere near this place

where do i even begin? we went for my birthday bash, 1st we call and they say that i cant bring my special ordered cake to the restaurant b/c they said their chef needs to stay in business. my fiance called and asked again about the cake, then they said that its ok to bring the cake & they will charge $2.50/guest. we get there and we have 8 people and we cant choose where we want to sit, they attitudes of all the workers was very bad, and they acted like they were doing US a favor. they brought the cake, but covered the picture on the cake with the 2 candles (destroyed the cake)!!! and brought us spoons instead of desert forks to eat the cake with...??? then they give the check and they charged us more for the cake than $2.50/guest AND WHEN WE ADDED THE TOTAL OURSELVES IT WAS LESS THAN THE CHECK AMOUNT THEY HAD, EVEN COUNTING THE TAX. so we told them this check is totally WRONG and they bring another check that is MORE EXPENSIVE BUT THIS TIME WITH 20% TIP ADDED. if a restaurant is to do that standard, they have to charge 18% not 20%! they wouldnt splint the checks for us and made me to math for 15 minutes on my birthday when i was just trying to relax. and there is actually even more to this experience, but me and my fiance talked to one of the partners of the biz and explained our experience and this is all he said ""ohh, im sorry you feel that way"". i was stunned, we spent almost $300 at this place, and i will never come and never recommend. think about it this way: a restaurant that looks that good, no one has ever heard of. Why? because if it were a good one, then people would recognize the name of the restaurant.

Good food, good atmosphere

No complaints. Quality food, friendly service. The deal with wine and two 1/2 apps was nice way to get a taste of some different items. Mangotini was great as well.

Why bother...

I've had dinner at The Globe once before and it was fair. We decided to go again because of its proximity to an event for which we had tickets, so we made reservations. Half an hour after our reservation time, we still were not seated and ended up eating at a sandwich shop in order to make it to our event on time. High pretense from the staff of this unremarkable spot. Don't waste your time--or judging by their attitude, they'd say not to waste theirs...
