“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We lunched @ Opus, In Punta Gorda. The visit started a little shaky…..a large curtain rod (and draperies) fell and hit me and frightened the rest of us. Most of us enjoyed our food. A couple of the girls had to send the crab bisque back as it was not hot and one had a hair in her food. Decor was modern, very clean, intimate seating was nice. The service was spotty and we felt not very responsive for the issues we had. They did bring us two deserts to share for “the fiasco with the curtain rod”. I actually felt pretty shaky during the entire lunch.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We te here last week and it was better. Tonight we had to send the fish back. It had a dreadful texture. The sea scallops had a portion of 4. The service was spotty. We I'll hesitate returning for dinner in the future.

“Best of PG”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We visited Opus for the second time in our month long stay in Punta Gorda. If the first visit was perfect, tonight was even better. We enjoy great food and drink but what makes an excpetional evening is the service. Gabriel (our second time having him wait on us) made the night special - evening delievered as requested, water filled several times, bread basket (and the bread was fresh and warm) filled twice without asking, great suggestions on wine and food --- you cannot get any better in the best of places in big cities.

In our month;s stay in Punta Gorda we have eaten out more than 10 times. Opus is the best by far. I recommend Opus without qualification.

“5 year anniversary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

A little pricy, but great for a special occasion. Very peaceful, relaxing, romantic atmosphere. Soft music so you can actually conversate and hear one another. Service is slow, but that's the point...they want you to slow down and enjoy your time there. We are always in a hurry so this was a bit annoying to us.
