We stayed at the Inn on the Square, just across the street from the Glass Onion.The person at the hotel desk mentioned that many of their guests who dined at the Glass Onion liked it. We made sure to get there soon after 5:30pm, to ensure that we get a place. Good decision... since soon after the place got filled... More

A welcoming place on a cold night: warm smiles, great service, good wine, and fine food. Strongly recommended.

We stayed at the Palmer House Inn this past weekend. This fantastic restaurant was just around the corner. Each course was special as was the service. We will return there again when we return to Falmouth.

This restaurant was highly recommended, and did not disappoint. For our last night of our honeymoon, we were thrilled to dine at such a lovely restaurant. Our server, Chris, was absolutely wonderful, and the meal was Exquisitely delicious.

First, we live in Falmouth and we love coming here… often. The wait staff is professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. The food is continually outstanding. Andrew was our server this time, and as always… wonderful and attentive. (All the servers are delightful) The amuse bouche is a delicious morsel that the chef sends out to tease your taste buds! My appetizer... More

Went for my 60th birthday with friends. The place is beautiful. Service excellent and very helpful. Food is prepared to perfection and presented very well. Serving sizes are small though. The amuse bush was a nice thought but laughable, the tiniest spoon ever with half a small red grape topped with goat cheese, half a pistachio and ONE micro green.... More

We were happy to be seated immediately on arrival and our waiter was really perfect. It was the old school we did not expect to meet in small town. Zagat describe the cuisine as "new american" but chef is definitely under french influence. Each plate is a piece of "haute cuisine". It was expensive but definitely worth it.

The Glass Onion was recommended by owner of the Beach Breeze Inn. We were extremely pleased and would rate this in our top-10 dining experiences in our many years of travel. Quite clear this was operated by a CIA chef, presentation, detail to service, quality of food - all from a limited menu due to electrical issues. Confident when full... More
