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

We had very good lobster Bisque, good wine. They have pasta with seafood and very delicious food. I should say they have an excellent Chef. The dishes are very nicely decorated. The only thing I would criticize is, that everything is over priced.

This restaurant is closeby so we can drop in for happy hour, have dinner or apps at the bar ( good charcuterie plate choices). Their menu is filled with delicious meat and seafood choices.

It was an odd night when we walked into Opal. My son was just hired by a new company and my best friend's mother had just passed away several hours earlier. I was in no mood to eat but also happy. Our server understood and made it easy. The server recommended the pasta specialty for that night. We had that... More

We heard about Opal and we were looking for something new and really good - the recommendation was right on point! The ambience is perfect, the service is excellent and the food is as good if not better than the top restaurants in Downtown Charleston. They have a wide variety of entrees - something for everyone and the appetizer not... More

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
