On the expensive side, but a perfect place for a celebratory dinner. Good menu, ambiance and service.

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

Dinner for two, with no reservation, mid week. This was a busy place as seems to be very popular in Falmouth and is a step up from casual dining. Many of the men wore jackets and ladies seemed to be dressed up a bit. That was mentioned to us prior to going. You don't need a tie but in jeans... More

It is nice to find a restaurant in the US where there is still a bit of 'class'. By that I mean the staff know their job, their menu and their wines. To advice is not to be smug but to be helpful. This place has excellent staff, excellent food and excellent ambience. One does not feel out of place... More

My wife and I decided to have our last meal in Cape Cod at the Glass Onion. To make the occasion special it was my birthday with my wife celebrating hers the following day so we wanted to go somewhere extra special, we were not disappointed. The whole premises had that New England design but it would not have looked... More

The atmosphere was so cozy. The food was great, as was the service. A little pricey but worth it for a special occasion!

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at the Glass Onion. It's been quite a while since we frequented this restaurant and after our amazing dinner we know we'll be back more often. The food was so good and our server was extremely gracious. We look forward to many more visits to this gem in Falmouth.

Dined at The Glass Onion last night. First off, it is a beautiful looking restaurant. The rainy night actually added to the cozy atmosphere. Our waitress, Priscilla, was wonderful. Very attentive but not intrusive. Our food was delicious. If the lobster fennel chowder or butternut squash bisque are in the menu, get either one. You won't be disappointed.

My wife and I have been to a number of fine restaurants over the years but the Glass Onion has to be one of the best. The interior is very elegant and the service and food were superb. It's not cheap, but worth every penny. We are certainly looking forward to eating there again on our next trip to Falmouth.
