Good food, very slow service

I love this place and have come here often, but the service the last time I was there was very slow. There is a wonderful salad buffet with lots of veggies and also different kinds of seafood. I found the price of the buffet pretty reasonable. You can choose from three different plate sizes, and... read more

The opus is located in a great location along the river in Lucerne. The food here had a ton of flavor. We had the opus burger and the antipasti buffet. Both were good, the burger had a different consistency and flavor than anything you'd find in the states, and there were a ton of options in the buffet, from olives... More

The restaurant offers a small, medium, or large buffet, based on the plate size. Only one trip to the buffet. I had a wonderful shrimp dish. There were a number of different shrimp offerings. Prices are high but everything in Luzern is high.

Food is very fresh and fast. It is very good value for Lucerne prices. Meaning it is not cheap compared to rest of Europe but it is also not the most expensive places in Lucerne. It has outdoor seating but what I like the best is that the food is high quality and is not just tourist stop like some... More

We reserved an outside table as it was sunny at the time, however a massive thunderstorm arrived which drove all the diners into the restaurant. Service was good. Food was straightforward - homemade chicken pie was hot, tasty and very filling. My wife had a burger (she normally avoids burgers) which was excellent

Opus is situated next to river Reuss and one can enjoy the pretty view of Lucerne while resting, enjoying one of the wines from the wide range of opus' selection and also its good food. Once a month on Tuesdays they offer a wine night on a certain topic. The atmosphere within the group is great, one can learn a... More

Good food (get the antipasto bar - it's a meal) and good on and off premises wine prices, plus a great location on the river make this a top spot for lunch or dinner in Lucerne.

Caesar salad was frozen chicken breast steam-defrosted, no parmesan, but a antipasti pepper/tomato put on. Tried another plate, tofu, which was not marinated but looked good. Excellent service and wines though, but seriously need to work on food.

The location on the river is beautiful in warm weather. The wait staff was great with us, and the food was very good. They have nice offerings for vegetarians too, by the way. But the prices were about 45 franks per person, without dessert or many drinks. Not cheap, but what food is cheap in Luzern?
