This is perhaps the finest fine dining over the bridge. Unfortunately, the price rules it out of your weekly night out type of place. There are many other spots in Falmouth and Mashpee that fill that niche exceptionally well. We ate there last August at the height of tourist season and it was exceptional. The wait was long but we... More

The Glass Onion may very well be the best fine dining restaurant on the Cape. The food is second to none and the waitstaff is incredibly friendly and fast. If you're visiting Falmouth you MUST stop into the Glass Onion.

We have eaten at the Glass Onion a few times and have always enjoyed it. We took a group of 6 for New Years Eve 2015. The menu was a 4 course tasting menu and we had a early reservation so it was not too busy when we arrived. I had talked with someone the day before and asked if... More

We were apprehensive about hosting a birthday dinner at this restaurant because they do not accept reservations but don't be taken back. From the moment we walked in the door to the moment we left our service meal and experience was top notch. Cannot say enough about our meal and server. So glad we chose this restaurant

By far the best restaurant on Cspe Cod. A bit pricey but worth it for special occasions. Great wine list.

Our party of four arrived early on a Saturday evening (just after 5:30) and were promptly seated at a window table. The decor and lighting is elegant and sophisticated. Service was exceptional; we were never rushed and the timing throughout the evening was perfect. The pairing of the entrees with their sides is innovative and delicious. Our party ordered braised...

My husband and I were visiting Falmouth this weekend and having researched the options on TripAdvisor, chose The Glass Onion*. We expected it to be nice, but it really was terrific. The very tasty amuse bouche, which our charming waiter brought us immediately after we sat down at our table, made us realize we were in for a special dining... More
