The Glass Onion was the first restaurant I visited when I moved to Asheville over two years ago from Georgia. I had dined at many wonderful restaurants in Atlanta, Savannah, and other parts of the country in my business travels, and just for fun, too. TGO is without a doubt the finest and most enjoyable dining experience in my journeys... More

We were four friends/co-workers from out of town who met for dinner here before a retreat and had a marvelous experience! Our waitress Laura was informative, engaged, and just lovely - as she described the specials it was clear it would not be an easy decision but we ended up with: the short ribs with horseradish gnocchi, a rib-eye steak...

The Glass Onion is almost hidden away on Main Street in Weaverville. The menu offers many selections and there are also specials of the day. The food is well prepared and the staff is very attentive. The only negative is the ambiance is not in line with pricing.

The wild boar bolognaise is the best pasta dish I've ever had, they also do great salads, truffle fries and desserts.

Avoiding Hurricane Matthew a group of us took refuge in Ashevile and had the good sense to reserve a table at this excellent restaurant. The service was impeccable, and surprisingly quick bearing in mind we all ordered different dishes, none of which were that easy to prepare. Everyone was delighted with their choice, well presented and prepared.

This place had numerous gf options at every part of the menu even dessert. Food was amazing and everyone including the fussy kids found something they liked. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable abt gluten free. Worth a ride from Asheville for a delicious and quiet dinner. Will be back.

We always go to the Glass Onion when in NC. Food is fresh and the chef always has specials. If you are going to dinner make a reservation or be prepared to wait a long time.

My wife and I spent a week in the Asheville/Weaverville area and this restaurant came highly recommended and, again, lived up to Trip Advisor's ranking. Small but quaint. Service was good and the food was outstanding. I must stop while traveling through this region.
