This was my first visit to the restaurant. Overall? Excellent service, tasty food, nice atmosphere, good wine! The pasta entrees were clearly fresh and from scratch and were given 5 stars from the table. The oysters were fresh and delightful, the charcuterie plate options were tasty, and the specials were enticing. My sister's special pasta (which they prepared for her... More

Opal is a sister restaurant to Langdon's, also in Mt Pleasant, slightly more casual, but with great food and service. The wine list is interesting and reflects thoughtful selection and varied geography. Our server was slightly patronizing, but attentive and friendly. For those who do not eat seafood, there are interesting alternatives. I had scallops, my sister had grouper, and... More

Back again with same results. Excellent gimlet from scratch (tart as ordered) and a good pour of wine started things well. Shrimp bruschetta split for two was plenty. Fabulous grouper, expertly lightly seared without and juicy within, over rice with spinach and squash tossed in.

It seems a little overpriced for what you get, but the food and service is good. The half-size pasta serving is large enough for all but the biggest appetites.

I was excited to visit this restaurant, as I am Lebanese, and enjoy Mediterranean food. I was disappointed to find that most of the food on the menu was very heavy and meat-based, and not very Mediterranean. Everything was very expensive- comparable to Downtown prices. As a vegetarian, there was nothing for me to eat. The chef made me a... More

Opal is one of our favorite local restraunts. It never disappoints they food is fresh and always delicious! Try the Salmon if your a fish lover it is savory with a delectably sweet maple glaze yet not overpowering. The shrimp bruschetta is just amazing slightly spicy yet pure perfection! The chocolate hazelnut cake is made to order and a must... More

Great food served by wonderful staff ! Try the shrimp bruschetta app - amazing! Good atmosphere- not too loud, not too intimate. Filet melts in your mouth. We've been to Opal several times, not one bad meal. One of our favorites
