The Glass Onion is a classy 'joint', with simple but refined ambience and decor. It is not inexpensive, but for the most part, it's nice to have a dining experience that is not the run-of-the-mill Cape Cod large family eateries. The service was very attentive,...More

Best restaurant in Falmouth hands down. The food is creative, and the atmosphere is very comfortable. This is not your typical Cape Cod seafood restaurant where you grab dinner. It is an enjoyable evening where you go to dine.

Our dinner was beyond reproach, but quite unexciting. One can get this caliber of fare for much less elsewhere in Falmouth. Most of the clietele seemed to be wealthy retirees. Perhaps prefer more traditional cooking than we do.

Just wanted to take a moment to compliment the service we received from Chris this evening. He went above and beyond to make sure our special drink requests were to our liking as well as providing very good service for dinner. Food was excellent also.

Terrific restaurant in Falmouth. Excellent drinks, wine and our server was outstanding. Daily specials were delicious, my sea bass perfectly done and the accompaniments were perfect. Refreshing summer gazpacho and salads w local ingredients memorable. Attractive atmosphere

The different meals we ordered were all delicious. The service was friendly. Maybe the portions are a bit small to be satisfied.

Sorry but I just can't get my head arround the fact that so many people give this restaurant such great revues. Its not bad but its not good either, definitely not excellent and definitely not worth the price. I can only assume that many of...More

Pretty much everything but the gnocchi is gluten free. As far as reservations, you'd have to call them and ask.
