My wife and I visited Falmouth for a day to get away. Our B&B hosts recommended The Glass Onion for dinner. The whole experience was terrific from how nice the hosts and staff were, to the food, to the atmosphere. I had the Filet Mignon, which I always expect to be good, but am sometimes let down. It was perfect.... More

Went here based on reviews. It did not disappoint. Visited on a Friday night around 5:30. No wait and was very quiet. Service was fantastic! Food was delicious! If visiting Falmouth you must try it. Great for a romantic dinner.

perhaps the best dinning experience I have had on Cape Cod. The menu, the staff, and of course the food. Save room for desert.

The Glass Onion has been on my list of places to try for a long time, so Valentine's Day seemed like a good time. They do not take reservations, but they have a little porch area, and with a martini in hand, it was a pleasure to sit and people watch. Every plate in the Glass Onion is a work... More

it just keeps getting better with time. The cuisine, whether winter, spring, summer or fall is incredibly well thought out to reflect the season and available fresh and interesting product. I had coq au vin, just a classic comfort winter addition, that was perfect, rich and accompanied by local grilled fresh vegetables....to say nothing of fabulous duck pate. It is... More

The Glass Onion quickly made it to the number 1 spot for a nice evening out this summer and one of the places we always bring friends/ guests coming to visit. The food is excellent, the menu is seasonal and fresh, the service is very good and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. This definitely isn't your typical "sea-shanty" establishment... More
