My husband and I had to travel to Falmouth for the day to take care of some business. We ate at the Glass Onion before returning home. What a great decision this was!!! It was still off season on the Cape, so it was not as busy as it could have been. The service and the ambiance was superior. We... More

This was my daughter's birthday. Everyone was quite attentive, great service, superb food, great attention to nut allergy in a member of our party. While the place was very busy, we did not feel rushed. Really, not a missed beat anywhere in the evening. Thank you! What a great family celebration.

We last dined here a few years ago and wished that we had not delayed our return, because our dining was as enjoyable as the last time. We tasted different offerings this time (country pate and day boat haddock on a red beet puree with artichoke) and these dishes provided as much pleasure as what we had and reviewed on... More

We returned to the Glass Onion last night after a five month hiatus and it is going as strong as ever. Food, service and ambiance are all consistently superior. Of the many times we have been there it never disappoints. Consistency is their strong point. They don't take reservations, but since it is pre-season on the Cape and early in... More

If you are looking for a place to mark a occasion, the Glass Onion is it. The food is exquisite, the staff is professional yet friendly, and the decor is lovely. Count on a wait as they do not take reservations for less than 6 people. Highly recommend despite the wait.

A fantastic place. Not cheap, but well worth it. Great staff (especially Colleen). Easily the best food in Falmouth. Not even sure what would be second. We have been many times and will be back many more. The only downside is that they don't take reservations, so you have to do some planning to be seated at a desirable time.... More

The Glass Onion is the Number One restaurant in Falmouth and I dare say the Cape. Trip Advisor has ranked it number two after Café Vialette, which is fabulous and a Have to visit if on the Cape. However, the Bakery is NOT a restaurant as is The Glass Onion (full service). Both are two of the best that the... More

The complete experience is top of the line. It is the place to go to make any occasion special. The menu is well rounded. The preparation, presentation, food choices and service will please even the most particular.

Always a warm greeting, delicious food and outstanding service. A lot of the food is locally sourced. Love the seafood lobster risotto! The owners, Josh and Tally do a wonderful job training their staff. It's unique and pleasing to go to a restaurant and be greeted by name.
