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!

Great food and service. Only complaint is that they did not enforce customers putting masks on when leaving their table to go to bathroom or exit establishment. It was unsettling and uncomfortable especially if people coughed walking by our table. Will return eventually but not now.

Literally the beat Caesar salad ever. The swordfish was amazing...perfectly seasoned and cooked and served with flavorful mashed potatoes. My niece has the angel hair with shrimp and loved it!

We go often. Excellent menu options and delicious main dishes. Sometimes the purées and sides need a bit of attention, but if they’re not to your liking, the salads are fabulous.
Always a treat.

We dine here several times a year so there was no doubt where we would go for our anniversary. Had a corner table, an excellent bottle of Frogs Leap Zinfandel at perfect temperature, goat cheese salad and crusted calamari for starters. The evening specials were well prepared and not overpriced. The almond cake desert was the topping to a memorable dining experience. This is the reason why Global Onion, despite being located in the small town of Weaverville, is one of Asheville’s top rated restaurants.

Lovely restaurant with very fast service and delicious food. The scallops were delicious and presented beautifully as was the chocolate cake for dessert. There is a slightly tighter seating arrangement due to the smaller size of the restaurant, and the noise level could be thrown off at moments by other patrons, but still, a very pleasant meal that I would be happy to return for again.

We had an amazing 20th wedding anniversary dinner. The food was incredible. The wine was amazing. The tiramisu was one of the best we’ve had. All in all a wonderful experience and we will definitely go back again for other special occasions.

In the Asheville/Weaverville area? This place is a must. Suggest reservations, as it is smallish and cozy. Wonderful food, drinks, and service. I've been here a couple times now and it does NOT disappoint.

Family gathering. My wife and brother and his wife out for the first time in a year together. We wanted to take them to the Glass Onion - they had never been. Awesome evening, awesome food as experienced every time we have ever eaten there and awesome service. Had a wonderful memorable night. Thank you.

Overall everything was lovely. I was a bit disappointed with the mushroom ravioli... the mushrooms must have been really ground up... as I didn’t taste mushrooms at all. Just rather bland. The garlic bread was Devine, the white bean soup wonderful on a cold night, the arugula salad very nice.

I would certainly try this lovely little restaurant again.

My first outing in a year was spectacular. The hospitality is always magnificent! Our server was efficient, effective and quite knowledgeable. The salads were superb, the entrees delicious with a beautiful presentation complete with a violet garnish and accompanied by a wonderful Oregon wine and the creme brulee was delicious and complete with a birthday candle for my friend. I can hardly wait for next time!

Excellent service, cute restaurant in downtown Weaverville. Pastas were delicious, the scallops were too chewy and disappointing. Great desserts and wine list.
