“Terrible!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I bought a gift certificate for 1/2 off here. My daughter from out of town and I went and when we opened the door I was actually freaked out! Nasty furniture, dirty, dingy. We did not stay, so cant say as to food. Nobody was there eating and it was prime time dinner hour!

“Great place to catch up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

We had a coupon and decided to start our girls night out here. 2 for 1 sushi till 730!! Yes please, order was perfect, sushi was good and the server had a great personality. We were able to catch up for almost 3 hours, they weren't busy and we didn't feel rushed. I would return they do have an awesome happy hour

“The potential is there, but the place is not living up to it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2010

My partner had a late afternoon meeting downtown. I did some searching for the local coupons and found one for Opal. It looked interesting. We decided to meet there. I got there a little early and settled in at the bar. They do a good bar business with the cheap Corona. As others note, the place is grubby. They specialize in sushi. Well, I would not order sushi there. Bartender was nice, drink was okay (did not have my brand of gin for the martini) . I used the disgusting bathroom only to wash my hands (I rode the zero bus in, Yuck!). We got a table and had a sandwich with fries. The food was okay. Price is okay, plus we had the coupon. Table service was good. The place is nothing special and overall not a place we would go back to.

This joint has a great location in an area that is still up and coming. They need to give all a good scrub and a coat of paint. Get rid of the sofa type seating at the tables. Bathrooms need a complete overhaul. It is really sad to see it so poorly managed.

Sushi was real small our entree was very good. But the womens room smells like an alley and was not very clean.

“Wouldn't go back if you paid for it...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2009

This place was highly disappointing. I was hoping for some good food, maybe a steak and some sushi, and instead all I received was a nasty plate of food. The appetizer of "vegetable tempura" was worse than most cheap chinese take-out, and the filet was one of the worst steaks I've ever had. I didn't even bother sticking around to taste the sushi...I was much too afraid....Overall, do not go if you have any choice in the matter.
