New owners and not even close to what it used to be. Disappointing to see a place go downhill within a year.

New owners so we thought we'd give them another try. Made a trip to Goldendale, cute little town. The glass onion that so many talk about when you go there was definitely over rated. The meals are very small in portion and big in price. The flavor was like a punch in the mouth and gave me an upset stomach.... More

My husband and I were headed from Vancouver, WA, to Ellensburg when he asked me to find a spot for lunch. I did a restaurant search on my GPS and amid the typical McDonald's and Subways, this little gem popped up. I quickly checked the menu and realized The Glass Onion was the place for two foodies like us, and... More

We stumbled upon this place on a road trip for lunch and it was a pleasant surprise. The food rivals the restaurants in Seattle and Portland. The restaurant itself was adorable, the staff was fantastic and the food was amazing. The Roast Beet Salad with Goat Lady Goat Cheese and Pecans is a must, SO GOOD!

If you have the chance to go to Goldendale, try this restaurant. One warning, go early as it fills up quickly. The food was excellent. I had the pasta and it was terrific. A bit on the pricey side but well worth the extra money. Service was excellent. It was very clean.

This is truly a dining asset to a small town like Goldendale. We've pass thru twice in the past 12 months & made it a point to stop & eat here (in the middle of nowhere). And it looks like a few other folks got the message because it was packed at 8pm! The chicken croquettes were perfectly crunchy but... More

We were the only people in the restaurant and having been a server I always think "uhoh" because if things are slow it's hard to get geared up again when you start to get customers. Server seemed a bit distracted and then didn't ask if we wanted water but then very quickly came back to hrrself and was just lovely.... More
