Would not eat dinner here again. Too much confusion and maybe some ventilation issues (though I willingly admit I am sensitive to scent). Sushi would be my first choice here. Their selection of fish is very fresh and preparation quite tasty. The menu is way too large as they are trying too hard to be too many things to too... More

We eat out regularly as residents and this is hand's down the best place in town. Terrific service, atmosphere and fare. Te biggest shock to us are the prices. Incredibly affordable. When you recognize so many locals, that speaks volumes.

I ordered take out. Didn't notice the order was not complete until I got home. Called twice to speak with manager, no answer. Had to go back to.pick up the rest of the order. The fries were all burnt, would not order from here again. Spent too much to get too little.

The fried chicken and waffles are very good and served with a slice of watermelon.The sausage dipped in pancake batter are addictive. The sauces are inventive but the breads are not soft enough.The desserts are ok but not worth the calories that they cost.If I am going to have a cheat dessert then it must be exceptional.

Convenient to the Salem Inn. Excellent service. We shared a sushi dinner, soft-shell crab and a hamburger platter.

A friend insisted that we try this restaurant, a favorite of his. We were more than delighted. Sushi was the choice for all and it excelled! Excellent ingredient combinations and good sized pieces. Our waiter was very attentive. Being "seniors", we appreciated that though there was a nice ambiance it was quiet enough for conversation.

We had started out at another place but it was closed so my sister suggested Opus and we had a lovely time. It was quiet as it was a Tuesday evening but pretty busy by the time we left. Service was excellent, our server was attentive and pleasant and knew the menu well. We had two orders of the salmon... More

You really have to stop in here for lunch. Had a great avocado BLT -- the bread was fantastic and you can tell the care taken with the ingredients and the preparation. Really well-prepared food, with salad and 1/2 sandwich for only $8.

I was there for a tasting and the sushi they served was the best I've ever had. They also paired it with a great wine to compliment our tasting.
