Italian restaurant with some of the best stuffed pasta I have had. Vegan and vegetarian options are available because everything is made to order. Excellent wine selection and the desserts are to die for. There is limited street parking, but this restaurant is across the street from the city parking lot. At the time of post, there is a special... More

We visited the Glass Onion on Sunday 12/11/2016 and were very impressed. We found the service excellent and the food was not only delicious but what a variety! I had quiche and my husband had eggs Benedict and both were excellent. We do not live in the area but will certainly stop in on our next trip through Weaverville.

My husband and I enjoyed a quick and classy lunch on a wine-lover's Wednesday. Our server was friendly and prompt, even though we were short on time. We appreciated the whimsical decor by local artists and the easy parking across the street. We had a fresh and local green salad, homemade pumpkin ravioli with pecan sage cream sauce, eggplant parmesan,... More

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.
