I went to Glow to celebrate a friend's birthday. The place looks so pretty inside.

We opted for the patio since it was gorgeous that day and look at the sofas they were just screaming for me to sit on them. It was so comfy and I love my comfy seats.

First off we received complimentary bread and dip. I don't remember which dip was what but it was pretty tasty.

There were a total of 6 of us in our group. We decided to order a bunch of dishes to share. I love sharing cause that way you get to sample a variety of food instead of eating from only one plate.

Here were crab cakes with spiced tahini sauce. It was yummy too bad we had to share. It just wasn't enough:(

I love burger sliders. What's not to like? They look so cute. There was turkey topped with dried fruit chutney, beef with caramelized onions and aged cheddar and lamb over mint infused hummus and feta. We ordered 2 of this so we can all have a bite. I don't remember which ones I tried but I think my fave was either the turkey or the beef burger. Next time I'm ordering one for myself.

Lobster mac and cheese with atlantic lobster baked with aged cheddar and gruyere cheese. This was decadent and pretty rich and cheesy. Soooooo good and they did give a few good chunks of lobster meat. Still a bit more would've been nice. Then again I always want more.

Veal scallopini herb crusted and topped with oven dried tomatoes, served with arugula, goat cheese, olives and wild mushroom jus. When this plate first arrived I thought it was just a salad. Until you moved the greens aside that's when you would see the 2 pieces of meat. Honestly this dish wasn't memorable to me. I don't even remember how it tasted but think some of the others enjoyed it.

Shrimp pesto linguine tossed with basil pesto, roma tomatoes, olives and feta cheese. I'm not a big fan of seafood pasta so not much to comment here but once again my friends did enjoy it.

Grilled ahi tuna in a sesame-soy marinade served with steamed baby bok choy, sauteed shiitake and king oyster mushrooms and light wasabi mayo. I like ahi tuna so this dish was for me.

The food was pretty tasty but the prices were a bit too high. Think you're just paying for the ambience and the location. Great spot to hang out however, for me think I would return if I feel like splurging a bit or just want to hang out at a cool place.
