Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We celebrated our anniversary and chose this excellent restaurant as we have been there twice before and were very satisfied. This time was no disappointment either - worth every cent. For starters we had blinis and borstz soup. For the main course we chose Gloria...lamb and salmon. Mouthwatering all. The interior is something else - so so beautiful. The service was this time not the best one as at the same time as we came a group of six. There was only one waitress and she served this group first (we had made a table reservation) so it took quite a long time before it was our turn to tell her what we would like to order. At the end of our dinner there came another waitress - English of both of the waitresses was not very good but came along with English anyway. Maybe this restaurant should pay attention on the language skill of the waiters / waitresses in the future as English is a commonly used language. Despite this we surely do recommend this Gloria restaurant.More

Absolutely very nice location downtown, with lots of history and a great classic feeling. Indeed this place has been for sure a great gastronomic gem in the past. as website tells you, Prince Charles, Sting, the Pope.....The rolling stones (not really famous for their culinary...taste though...)...were there Long time ago. but what about today? Not really crowded when we were there - service of very basic level. Attention to guests close to ZERO. The food was of Average quality and cooked like everywhere. Let's forget talking about 'fine dining' please..... I believe that with a real focus on cooking and taking care properly of guests, this place could get back to shine easily. Premises are still GREAT! Right now it is just the pale shadow of what was time ago. Very sad about that. Hopefully their management will follow up at some point!More

Came here on our last night in Tallinn with a group of friends, beautiful location within the walls of the city, sumptuous decor and an elegantly set table that made us feel special. Booked from my home town in Italy because we were a large...group (11 people) and they replied promptly suggesting an interesting menu for the whole table comprising both fish and meat but varying it to cater for a vegetarian and a person who has gluten allergy. Everything from the salmon, the soup, the cod, steaks and deserts were of excellent quality and prepared with expertise. My veggie dishes were incredible and looked just as good as they tasted. Our waiter was very attentive and professional but also very discreet and the price was reasonable considering that Gloria is the number one restaurant of Tallinn, open since 1937. Everyone was really pleased with the whole experience and if I ever return to Tallin I will definitely pay them another visit. Would be very romantic to dine here with a “significant other” in one of the booths that give more privacy than the main area, and it would also be nice dining here to make a special occasion even more special.More

One of the best restaurants that we have experienced. Food was absolutely delicious & surroundings romantic & tastefully decorated with private eating booths. 2 course meal x 2 entrecôte with bottle of wine & water was approximately €150, good value, would highly recommend

A friend and I had a late dinner. It was a lovely place to spend an evening. Very nice atmosphere and decor. Fantastic service and good wine. We ordered the cheese plate and grilled scallops to start. The cheese plate was fine, but the scallops...woth risotto were fantastic. Highly recommended. For mains, we had the duck and cod with fennel salad, both of which were excellent.More

The stone building entrance look somewhat modern, but as soon as you step in, you are in another world. The most beautiful art deco restaurant in dark red, brown and golden colors. Thick, soft carpets. Dark wood panels. Glass ceiling. Most tables are in small...private booths for 2-4 people, super for privacy. We had a very nice 4-star meal, very tasty and appealing. Not hyperinnovative, but not necessary. I had a super signature blinis, good salmon and a traditional creme brulee. Service started a bit reserved, but picked up; friendly, attentive and speedy. . A very nice evening indeed. Instagrammer/blogger note: "No, you are not allowed to take photos in the restaurant". But it is o.k. with a discrete couple and table photo.More

I love Gloria for a great service and food. Atmosphere of mid 50, classical service. Everything was just perfect. Food is amazing. Definitely a pricy place, but worth if you want something remarkable.

Arrived with my boyfriend and were really looking forward to a beautiful Fine dining dinner. We ordered foi gras and tartar for starters and they were delicious! But then.. For main course we both ordered the entrecôte.. the steaks were good but the sides were...incredibly “waste of time” the fries were all smoochy and definitely not how fries should be.. For dessert we ordered ice cream and were looking forward to delicious creamy and smooth ice cream but all the scoops were crystallized 😢 A dinner that ended in € 235 - wasn’t worth it..More

We recently did a tour of the Baltic countries and Russia and enjoyed our visit to Tallinn in Estonia. We were able to have dinner at the best restaurant in Tallinn--- Gloria 1937. This restaurant is set in the old town and is an elegant...and very upmarket restaurant. You proceed up a stairway to an upstairs dining area where we were seated at a table with 2 of our travelling companions. The service was outstanding and the food was memorable. We had an excellent meal and would highly recommend this restaurant to all visitors to Tallinn.More

What a lovely place and so much atmosphere. Try to get one of the private booths to make it an even more special night. I loved everything I ate - assorted appetizer plate with caviar, quail eggs, and blinnies, main course of quail stuffed with...duck liver and wrapped in bacon, and creme brûlée for dessert. Heard the borsch was wonderful too, though my husband was not impressed with the pork belly he had for his main course. Wonderful attentive service also.More

Wonderful art nouveau decor with an eye for detail. The setting is a cross between th Orient Express and thr Grand Opera Hall in Budapest. We went in summer and this is not really a summer place. So it was quite empty. But since the...tables are in private booths it didnt matter. Excellent food but quite pricey for Tallinn. Definitely a good choice for special occasions.More
