We are never disappointed by the food or service offered to us when dining at The Glass Onion. We particularly like eating there off season as there is never a wait.

Went here last night. Outstanding. Every course was wonderful. Squash bisque, lobster appetizer, and probably the best filet mignon we have ever had... the blue cheese butter was inspired. And home-made coffee ice cream that tickles those corners at the back of your mouth. Wonderful!!! And a terrific waiter to boot. Can't wait to come back.

Great ambience, amazing food and wonderful hospitality without being intrusive. We were made feel 'at home' in a sophistaked though comfortable environment. The service was attentive and relevant. The evening was the dining highlight of our six week tour which covered Europe, UK and the New England States.

The owner of our hotel recommended this restaurant but warned us that it wasn't cheap and, as it was at the far end of town, we rejected it at first. We drove into Falmouth and walked down the high street looking at menus only to find that, without a booking anywhere - it was a Saturday night - we would... More

The Glass Onion was a fantastic, special, and really delicious restaurant in Falmouth. It was our first time going but given our special celebration (just got engaged) they treated us incredibly well. The short rib and sweet potato/bacon puree was unreal, as was the tuna. Cocktails were on point. Will gladly go back every time we're in Falmouth. It's really... More

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.
