We enjoyed our 25th wedding anniversary dinner at the Glass Onion. We went to the Glass Onion on the recommendation of the B&B owners were we stayed. Atmosphere was lovely, service was outstanding, the bread was amazing, and our dinners was fabulous. If you like seafood I highly recommend the Seafood Risotto with the poached lobster. We would definitely visit... More

Good food, nicely decorated, this is a good special occasion restaurant. A bit pricey and sometimes the atmosphere is a little too formal and stiff, but it is worth an occasional visit. Good wine list and interesting menu.

We received a gift card and decided to try the Glass Onion over Columbus Day weekend! We had a very nice dinner ... The setting was very nice and we we very happy with the service, food and wine. It is a bit expensive ... But would definitely recommend to friends and would go again.

Very tasty and well presented food in a beautiful restaurant with attentive service. Portions were a nice size and the ambience in the restaurant was more intimate and sophisticated than other restaurants we ate at in the local area.

Excellent food and service and a nice wine list. Very pleasant setting, but hard to find--get good directions before you go. Expensive, but not outrageous.

We had a wonderful dinner, we loved our food and our waiter was very attentive. If I return to the cape I will certainly want to dine here again!

We went to the Glass onion not knowing what to expect. We go out to dinner quite often and had never tried this restaurant. To our surprise it was delicious! It is not your cheaper restaurant but the saying goes you pay for what you get ! Well worth it. !

We were taken to the restaurant by friends who live in Woods Hole. They have had good experiences with it. It is a lovely restaurant, lots of room, and they were ready for us as we had made reservations (a must in the summer on the weekend). We are still not quite sure why we were disappointed. Perhaps expectations. But... More

Enjoyed our 38th anniversary meal at the Glass Onion. Service was excellent, however both of us agreed that we have experienced better meals in other upscale restaurants over the years. The restaurant had been highly recommended to us in the past, so thought this would be a great choice. We discovered afterwards that the former Chef has departed from the... More

We went here based on several recommendations from various locals. The restaurant is elegant but not stuffy. The wait staff was excellent. Our food was delicious except neither my friend or I enjoyed the salad we ordered which was the special for the day but everything else was top notch. My friend has a shrimp allergy and they made one... More
