We had poor service and terrible food. We ordered seafood Newburg. Waited over an hour. The sauce was hardly warm and the rice was crunchy! I ordered a roll that never came and when I complained to the manager he didn't even apologize. The waiter was apologetic but unable to do anything about the problem. I would never recommend this...

They did not have raw oysters on the menu, but had a new order arrive and offered them to us , which we accepted. They we wonderful. The fish dish we ordered wasn't quite cooked,... More

Staff attentive with very good food. I was by myself and stat the bar. Management notice me being alone and engaged in conversation, a nice one to say the least. I will be back with wife for a nice romantic dinner, it definitely has the design for it

Opus has served us some first class food, however they really need to correct some discrepancies if they want to be a first class restaurant. #1- Get the sheets of paper off of the table tops. At the prices they charge they can afford to wash the table cloths. #2- Set the table continental style- I don't expect to be... More

We had a wonderful dinner with friends at Opus. It's not noisy, the food is excellent, the wine list is good and the service is attentive but not annoyingly solicitous. The room is very pretty and most comfortable. I recommend this place unconditionally, based on my experience.

If you haven't been to Opus in the last three months its time to go back! In early fall Opus got a new Head Chef and he has made a significant improvement in the menu, the presentation and the overall quality of the food. We started with a couple of appetizers a bruschetta thats just on the bar menu but... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the interior is a quiet, refined atmosphere. It's not a restaurant for children, more like a special occasion place. The service was efficient and the food is consistently good.

This was our second visit. My girlfriend and I have a girls day out once a month. We loved this place the first time so went back this past week. The server was attentive but not overbearing. We share a bottle of wine so we are often there for awhile. We never felt rushed although other diners came and went.... More

The food at opus was delicious, the portions generous the staff courteous and attentive. What I didn't like about it was the atmosphere. They need some design help to make this place sing
