“Great food, great service, highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

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.

“One of the Best on Cape Cod”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

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 our last visit. They were ample and delicious.The dining room is cozy and comfortable and the service excellent. My only complaint were the large goblet wine glasses that were used for our white Spanish wine. Wrong match there, but a minor issue. We dined in the off-season, because in the summer you may have to wait for a table if you do not get here early, because no reservations are taken. If a VG+ rating were available, I would have given it.

“Still Going Strong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

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 the week, so we were seated immediately by Josh, the owner, and treated to an excellent and relaxing meal. Don't miss it.

“Lives up to its reputation as the best in Falmouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

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.

“Best Restaurant in Falmouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

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. Wish they would change that, but I suppose they're so good they don't have to.
