This place is a gem! We went with a party of 5 for a UNCA graduation dinner. The food was outstanding, some of the best I've had in a long time. They have lots of gluten-free options which can be a limiting issue at other places. We sampled a wide range of the menu items - trout, ribeye, pasta and pork chops. All were amazing. And the creme brulee was the perfect way to end the meal. Can't wait to go back there again.

We had reserved an outdoor table, but the evening turned windy and cold. The restaurant was very understanding about our request to move to an indoor table. They served us drinks and delicious hot garlic bread knots outdoors while we waited for a table to open up inside. Within 15 minutes we were seamlessly moved indoors to a lovely table and continued to enjoy dinner there. Our meals were delicious and the service was excellent.

We tried the Glass Onion on a recent trip to Asheville. The menu had so many great choices with a focus on seasonal vegetables. I tried the Chicken and garbanzo soup as a starter. It was excellent with a very Greek flavor profile. I had the scallops which were a special and they were perfectly cooked. My husband tried the ribeye and he said it was perfectly cooked and excellent. The garlic bread that they served at the beginning of the meal was amazing! We would definitely return.

We were disappointed that the wine special was gone. But understand things are different after Covid. I am vegetarian and there were no veggie entrees on the menu. Fortunately, there was a eggplant parmesan on the specials menu which was delicious. Your restaurant was our last dine out March of 2020. Felt really good to be able to be there again. Thank you for surviving. Look forward to our next dinner with you.

We had an excellent dinner! The calamari was delicious. We each ordered an evening special. One scallops, the other eggplant, and we both enjoyed them immensely. The server was exceptional. She was very knowledgeable about the menu!

This restaurant in Weaverville, a little off the beaten path for tourists, is one of the finest and most creative in the Asheville area. Well worth the the drive and easy to find. One of the few excellent restaurants where one might be able to make a reservation within the week. 5 stars!!!

We enjoyed our dinner at the Glass Onion. Most of the food was very good, but my entree was nothing special and the shrimp were overcooked. Our server was outstanding and the ambiance was nice. I would go back again.

We found this restaurant while staying in Asheville and could get a weekend reservation the day before going (could not in Asheville). We had excellent food all the way around and the service was great. I would recommend a reservation as they were quite busy.

Only thing and this is minor. I didn't think the lemon tart was outstanding. It was a tart and smallish and I shouldn't be so critical, but I thought portion should have been bigger since it is shorter in stature than let us say a pie or cake.

Our first outing back to the Glass Onion in several months due to Covid-19. We were not disappointed! Food, service and overall ambiance was as we remember. We shall be returning more often for both lunch and dinner. The Glass Onion is a real jewel in Weaverville!

Seating is still limited (social distancing) so reservations are highly recommended.

The Glass Onion has been one of our favorites since it opened 5 or so years ago. Its food is consistently foody worthy. My monkfish entree was a little dry this time, but caesar salad and coconut cake were up to their excellent standard. We are grateful to be able to again enjoy dine-in at GLASS ONION!
