The food that we ordered was good, but not worth the price tag. The ambience of the restaurant and the dining experience was wonderful. All of that said, we did feel a little sick about 2 hours later, and my daughter said the Strawberry Shortcake dessert tasted funny, then she was sick later as well.

We absolutely loved our special dinner at Glass Onion! Because of my husband’s immune system, we aren’t comfortable dining inside yet but are grateful there are outdoor tables. Unfortunately, the ambiance suffers with motorcycles and fire trucks! But that won’t stop us from going back - it was one of the best meals we’ve ever had!

One of the best restaurants in the area. A real jewel. Selfishly hope it doesn’t get discovered by tourists.

As usual the glass onion was outstanding good to see a big crowd in there now that people aren’t afraid to come out because of Covid.

My husband and I went for dinner. We sat at the bar, which was excellent. All of the food was amazing from the truffle fries to the beet salad to the Blue cheese salad. The entrées were fettuccine with mushrooms and meat ravioli. Both were excellent I would highly recommend the glass onion

Terrific food! My wife has celiac disease so we really appreciated the attention to the gluten free menu options, especially the chocolate cake. We had a great experience.

The staff were terrific. We chose The Glass Union for our 10th Anniversary and were very please for this selection. There are lots places to choose from in theAsheville area but the food and friendly and professional service could not be beat! Thank you staff at the Glass Union for helping to make this anniversary a special one! Joel&Jessica Towbin

Consistently great food and service. Housemade pastas. Fresh, local ingredients. Great wine list. And always outstanding off-the-menu daily specials, like last night's parchment flounder stuffed with crab meat, asparagus with a little béarnaise. Simply outstanding, once again.

This was our first getaway post Pandemic and the Glass Onion was the perfect end to a perfect weekend! Everything about the experience was terrific, from the easy reservation and seating to the delectable cocktails to the lovely presentation of the entree. The calamari was the best I’ve ever had!

We frequent Glass Onion and LOVE every course we’ve ordered. The complimentary garlic rolls are super yummy also. The ambiance is nice...some tables pretty close together though. Not too loud. A nice selection of wines. We high recommend this restaurant.

We had a wonderful first visit. My wife and I live close by in Asheville and have wanted to go but Covid held us back. It was my brother’s birthday so we decided to celebrate there. The food was outstanding as well as the service and ambience. It’s now our favorite restaurant in the area. We highly recommend it!
