Opus Restaurant, in Birmingham’s business district, is a top spot for a business lunch or a schmoozey dinner. The cavernous dining room is a dramatic open space decorated in muted hues. The team at Opus are proud of their modern British menu which showcases locally sourced free range meats and freshly caught fish. Favourites include the Lyme Bay Scallops with Belly of Pork and the Grilled Lobster served with Chips and Garlic Butter. The glamorous waiting staff are super-friendly, and the renowned in-house patisserie gives you a great excuse to have a naughty limoncello-cheesecake ending to your meal. It would be rude not to.

Delicious food & excellent service

I booked one of the private dining rooms at Opus for a business dinner - the service I received in the run up to the dinner was great and was matched equally on the night. The private room was ideal for what we wanted (the only thing I would suggest would be to close off the open wall by the... read more

On a special occasion, I had the chef's table in the kitchen for 6 with my wife and friends on Saturday 9 May. We had drinks in the bar before being shown through to the kitchen which was a hive of activity but quiet and organised. The restaurant was full including private dining so the output from the kitchen was... More

We are always in pursuit of good food in places we have never dined at before. Opus proved to be an excellent find, both for quality of food and excellent service. The pre starter of Oysters were amazing, but no less fantastic than the rest of the fine dining we had. I would recommend a visit here if you enjoy... More

My wife and I booked a table at Opus as we was in Birmingham for the weekend. What can I say…The food was incredible, service is discrete, but still attentive and the ambience is nice and relaxed with a very modern decor. This is a Michelin Start restaurant in the making, I would highly recommend dining here!

Opus delivers consistent high quality eating experiences with attentive, light touch service and some real winners on the menu. We love the fishcake starters and the steaks are always spot on. For a special occasion it can't be beaten.

Opus is a real gem of a restaurant. It has excellent food and service but not the highest price tag.

My partner and I have dined at Opus many times and regularly held business dinners. You are assured of excellent service, top quality food and attentive but not fussy service. I would highly recommend the restaurant for special occasions and guaranteed good food.
