We visited Opal on a Friday night without reservations and were happily surprised to get a table. The place was full of local diners. We tried the mussels with a garlic confit sauce, which were terrific. The duck was delicious, cooked to perfection with an excellent side involving barley and veggies. Shrimp with gnocci was very good -- fresh corn... More

Came in with friends. This was one of their favorite places and we can see for good reason. Opened up things with some CHARCUTERIE and a selection of cheeses. The Chicken dish, while the least expensive on the entree menu was possibly the best of all three orders. (yes we all tasted off each others plates). My duck was nicely... More

On a Saturday night four of us went to Opal for the first time and had a very pleasant dining experience. The half size pasta dishes were very large and very good, and the mussels with the red sauce with sausage (one of three choices for the mussels) were excellent.

Friends suggested their happy hour, which we enjoyed thoroughly. We had a mix of charcuterie and several cheeses and a very nice tempranillo. I'll be going again to try their main dishes.

I screwed up a reservation at Opals. We came to apologize and eat and were stunned by the quality and service. Noelle guided us through the menu and helped between the scallops and the duck. I thought that having Israeli couscous with bacon was more than strange but the couscous was great . The bacon was kind of overwhelming. The... More

This should be Langdon's flagship restaurant. Great food, great service and a great location in Sea Side Farms.

Superb food and service. The fish is cooked to perfection and all pastas are hand made. The shrimp Bruschetta is a big favorite with me. All of the ingredients are so fresh. Nice atmosphere and great selection of wines.
