Enjoying a weekend away in Asheville but as it's Thanksgiving weekend, the restaurants are pretty crowded. We headed to the Glass Onion (15 min from Asheville) and are so glad we did... We were seated promptly and the service through the evening was perfect! Food was fresh and well-prepared! Gnocchi was delicious.

We made reservations at the Glass Onion in Weaverville several weeks in advance of Thanksgiving so we'd have a place to celebrate the holiday will staying in the mountains. We arrived just before our reservation and were shown a table, one of two that were empty. The Thanksgiving day menu was quite varied, but we opted for the traditional Thanksgiving... More

We wanted, and got, a first-class dining experience for a birthday dinner. Our B-n-B host recommended the Glass Onion and made reservations for us. Reservations are a good idea. When we walked by the place on a Saturday night, it was jammed and hopping. We were glad we went on a Sunday evening when things were more relaxed. We got... More

Located just outside of Asheville, it is a small beautiful town. Old fashion atmosphere and wonderful service. Food was great and their chicken used is organic. Could not ask for a better eating place.

The Glass Onion is an easy first choice for us, whether we are looking for a fun evening out, entertaining friends, or celebrating an important event. The unassuming store front entrance has been home to a few good eateries in Weaverville, but the Glass Onion tops them all. Inspired foods on the regular menu, and amazing seasonal specials keep us... More

Really outstanding food and friendly service. Love the pasta bolognese. If you are a garlic fan, the bread they serve to open the meal will have you salivating.

The Glass Onion is nestled among storefronts on Main Street in Weaverville but the dining experience is well worth a short drive from Asheville. Two of us ordered the filet mignon special. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the presentation was superb! A small but good wine list complimented our dinners. The restaurant is quite small and not designed for... More

The food was absolutely perfectly prepared and so very delicious. Presentation was like that of the highest class restaurant in NY. The steaks were prepared perfectly, had been marinated in something amazing! The Fettuccini melted in your mouth. And, ah yes, the desserts....coconut cake with cream cheese icing and the chocolate everything! We will definitely be visiting this restaurant again.... More

We loved this place! I eat gluten free and the menu was clearly labeled and I had many options to choose from for salads, sides, entrees, and pasta entrees. I chose the beet and pear salad and the gluten free pasta with mushroom ragu. The mushroom sauce was so delicious. There were many specials as well that sounded great. My... More
