We happened to find ourselves in the adorable town of Weaverville in time for lunch and wandered into the Glass Onion. Half price wine on Wednesdays was fortuitous. Then a spectacular Chicken Diablo salad that was so wonderful as was the organic salmon salad that...More

Smaller place, great food, friendly service. Full service bar. Worth the very short drive from Asheville. Owner was actually working and taking care of her guest. Good specials too.

Glenn Miller--or Louis Armstrong--or Frank provides the background music. Classy, comfortable, think upscale. With the next nearest eateries all about the burgers, fries, pizza...More

Delicious foods. Garlic rolls that are put on the tables at dinner can't be beat! Never tasted any better. Pleasant service and atmosphere.

We ate at the Glass Onion several times during our stay in Asheville. The steaks, seafood and chicken were all prepared well, tasty, and service was impeccable.

Nestled in the quaint little town of Weaverville, about 16 minutes from downtown Asheville, the Glass Onion is a destination restaurant you simply must experience. The irony here is that the Glass Onion isn't doing anything magical, they are following the oldest recipe for success...More
