Could not have been a more relaxing and wonderful night. Our server, “Amy”, was attentive and paid attention to every detail. The food was exquisite. We recently moved to Falmouth and will be back soon.

We were going to go out to a local Italian place but then I read some reviews of the Glass Onion. The ravings for the lobster strudel got me curious. Very glad we went here. The strudel was everything I expected and more. We also...More
