“A perfect meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

We ate at Glass Onion twice this month when we were back in Asheville from Tampa. The food was delicious and everything is so fresh. My husband selected the whole baked snapper and he said it was one of the best seafood dishes he has ever had. I had the Ravioli special and it was melt in your mouth scrumptious. We ways get the fried calamari because it is not like any we have ever had. The harvest salad was great and so was the carrot ginger soup. We will be back up that way mid April and we can hardly wait to return! We think it's the best restaurant in the Asheville area.

“Excellent Italian 15 minutes from Asheville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Just 15 minutes from downtown Asheville, the Glass Onion is a sophisticated Italian culinary find on Main Street in the small town of Weaverville. My wife and I have eaten there four times now and our verdict is that the food is consistently excellent. For example, I am not generally a fish lover, but on a recent visit we shared one of the evening specials – a whole red snapper, served with caper berries on a bed of quinoa. The fish was cooked perfectly and seemed so fresh it could have come right off the boat. (The server explained – “The chef is from the Hamptons. He is really into fresh fish.”) The arugula salad with Prosciutto de Parm is highly recommended as is the beet salad. The wine list is reasonably priced with an emphasis on Italians. There is a reasonable beer list, with a few craft beers.

A few days later, my wife and daughter hit the place for Sunday brunch. Both gave it two thumbs up.

One of the best foodie deals in western North Carolina is the every-Wednesday night dinner special in which all the pasta dishes are less than $15 and all the bottles of wine are half price. It’s well worth the quick drive over from Asheville.

“Fantastic dinner on a Sunday night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We decided to go out last minute this past Sunday (3-2-2014) and decided on the Glass Onion in Weaverville, NC... We have eaten here before and had a fantastic dinner that night also...The restaurant was busy when we arrived, but we were quickly seated given menus and water by The host William, and in a matter of minutes our server ( Mandy) came by to take our drink order...The food, service and ambiance of the Glass Onion is outstanding...
