Why go all the way downtown?

Fresh, homemade pastas, a small semi-formal environment what's not to like. We enjoy ordering the excellent Charcuterie with a half plate each of the pasta with a nice bottle of wine...great value and great food. This is as good as you are going to get downtown. Period.

We ate here twice while staying near Charleston. Both Noel & Nick were excellent servers and Nick even had the kitchen make me hot chocolate though it wasn't on the menu, because the weather had turned unseasonably cold and I really needed some! The pasta dishes were absolutely delicious and generous portions. The bisque was good to the last drop,... More

Every meal we've had here has been oustanding. Pasta made in house. Ricotta gnocchi with duck ragout was awesome. The shrimp bruschetta and the local clams with house made sausage are staples on the menu and we get them every time we dine here. You can't pass up the fried egg on top of country ham and asparagus when it's... More

As locals we see a lot of restaurants come and go. Our party of four women agreed that the soup was excellent as was the Charcuterie. But everyone's meal turned out to be a disappointment, and we each ordered something different. Most food seemed to be coated in olive oil, including the pastas and salads. While the atmosphere was nice,... More

This is an expensive restaurant for the Mount Pleasant side of the Cooper River, which takes it out of the realm of "I don't feel like cooking tonight." and puts it into "Special Occasions". Not a "value" restaurant, in other words, although it is more casual than sister restaurant Langdon's. We were taken here to celebrate my husband's birthday. It... More

Wonderful dinner at the bar Friday evening. Everything was excellent from salad, wine, chicken dish, atmosphere, quality feel, soft music that allowed for easy conversationing.

The atmosphere here is a bit more casual then it's sister restaurant, Langdons but the space is attractive and it is not too noisy. We had dinner here and I had the steamed local clams in a spicy tomato broth with fennel sausage which was delicious . My husband had the beef tartare special and loved it. He also had... More

We have driven past Opal in the shopping center several times over - not realizing we had missed a great restaurant. Beautiful but not over the top venue. We enjoyed the fresh salads, pasta dishes, chicken and duck entrees. The service was also very good - thank you Shannon.

The house salad was excellent with a light touch of dressing and fresh cherry tomatoes. My wife and I shared one which was brought by our server on two salad plates. It was plenty to share. I had crisp chicken served with crispy gold potatoes and grilled brussel sprouts and asparagus. My friends had pasta specials and duck. All agreed... More
