We enjoyed a special birthday with six adults on a busy Saturday night! Our table was adorned with a small birthday card for the birthday girl, which was a lovely way to be greeted to the table. We started our experience with a diverse cocktail selection (gin martini, Manhattan, Bellini, cosmopolitan, and wine) with the seafood tower to share--all of... More

Steve was our server and he was training Dillon on the night that we visited this steakhouse. I was impressed that we were addressed though out the meal as "Mr. & Mrs." and we were NEVER rushed or felt as though we needed to hurry through our experience. Steve and Dillon were very knowledgeable and excellent at their tasks. Our... More

Our waiter, James, was one of the best we have ever had. He was very informative, attentive, and accommodating. Our BBQ Shrimp and Fried Oyster appetizers were recommended and I can certainly see why. They were quite flavorful. My wife had the Sampler and I had the Cowboy Ribeye. My wife loved what she got. The ribeye could have been... More

Excellent steaks and pleasant steak house ambiance, with a wide selection of wines our group enjoyed the entire dining experience. Price points are what you would expect in an up scale steak house so sticker shock by some reviews are really dumb.

I went Opus 9 a year a go and it was amazing but I went twice this year and the service was very disappointed. This was supposed to be a 5 star restaurant but it became a 2 star in my opinion. The food was good but only good means it wasn't excellent. I traveled all the way from Virginia... More

This restaurant is hard to dissect. Our experience was somewhat bipolar, parts excellent , parts not. It was like dining at a high end steakhouse run by people who have read about but never been to a high end steakhouse. We arrived and were seated promptly. The ambiance was that of a high end restaurant, our waiter was friendly, good... More

The steak was top notch, as you would expect in a restaurant voted to be the best steakhouse in the area. However, when I pay that much for my meal, I expect the service to be friendly and obsequious. I do NOT expect snarky comments to be made about my wine selection.

We had heard a lot of hype about Opus 9 being 'the' place for steak, so we were excited to try it out for dinner. The decor is formal and very pleasing. Our wait staff was attentive and we were seated promptly. Our salad was fresh and appetizing, but, sadly, the filet mignon was only so so and, like the... More

The dining room is well-appointed and cozy. The table setting is elegant without being pretentious. We were celebrating a birthday and the table had a small happy birthday sign on it which I thought was a nice touch. The warm bread served with soft sweet butter was very tasty. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection. I also had the... More
