Not a good business model – 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.
Fine dining, varied cuisine, amazing service, warm atmosphere, great wine list – 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.
Global is Charlotte's Hidden Jewel – 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.
Make dining an event – 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.
great service and great food – 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!
