My husband and I had dinner at Opal a couple of nights ago. We found every course for each of us to be extremely good. I started off with the clams with sausage and fennel. Served with toast points, it is extremely savory and filling...definitely a dish I will order again, and would highly... read more

We went a few times for the early bird dinners. They were more reasonable and the food was very good. They have stopped offering the early bird, which made the price of the dinners more realistic. The normal menu prices are much too high so we probably won't return.

Our party of 13 had dinner at Opal and we were very happy with the food and service! You must try the charcuterie board appetizer with its fabulous selection of meats and cheeses! My entree was the ricotta gnocchi with shrimp, tomatoes and corn. Great wine list. I can't comment on dessert because I was too full! Really superb! I... More

Friday night our second time here, and we were pleased both times. Our server, Brittany I believe, was very pleasant and knew the menu. My wife and I both chose pasta and were glad we did. Don't be concerned that having two plate sizes / prices means that the smaller size will leave one with a normal appetite hungry. Quite... More

We were looking for a restaurant for our last dinner on vacation that would not be noisy and crowded. We were afraid we would have trouble finding a reservation at a good restaurant on Friday night but got one here at 8 for 5 people and were thrilled with the meal. The shrimp bruschetta was delicious as were the veal... More

We get the charcuterie board that is called the surfboard every time we come in. It has 8 cured meats, 8 amazing cheeses, honey, mustards, hazelnuts, homemade chutney, arugula and crackers. It is the best board in Chatleston in my family's opinion. The cheeses and the meats differ every time we come in! Yummy!

The food is very good. They have some things that are regularly on the menu and offer a few specials. The food is always good and the service is really nice. The people have worked there for years and that says something is good besides the food.

We ended up at Opal on the Saturday night we were there since Crave was completely booked and there was no way we were going to be seated (we liked Crave so much we wanted to go back). So we ate at Opal, which was very noisy, and ended up having some fine gnocchi with lots of veggies in it... More
