My husband & I went to Opus for the last meal of our honeymoon - and we were blown away. Definitely go here if you want great sushi and drinks! If you're lucky enough, you might have Celeste waiting on you - she's absolutely wonderful...and made some amazing drinks recommendations for us. We're already making plans to come back!More

This is a terrific restaurant offering an extensive and varied menu. It is open for take out and delivery. We chose delivery via Grubhub, which was easy and on time. The food was excellent, pleasing both meat lovers and vegetarians.

Fun atmosphere and friendly service. Most of the food was delicious - particularly their dumplings, lobster rangoons, and cavatelli. I was not a fan of the spices on their fish tacos (coriander?) - but that's a personal preference thing. I can definitely recommend.More

BUT the food was real good, and there was plenty of it. When on app. showed up with one entree which therefore did not become hotter....and when I mentioned the issue twice, the manager came, apologized, and gave me the entree for free. They were...indeed busy(good news, bad news), but all of our food was quite good and we will return.More

Our waitress was superb-efficient & friendly. Our table of 10 ordered a plethora of different dishes and all of them were very tasty. Reasonably priced too which is always a bonus. I will revisit Opus for another delicious meal.

We have not been in years and wondered if it is as good as people said. It is. Quite low key, good booth, good bar scene and the food was fun and not too expensive. The service was just a little slow but it was...busy. We will return.More

We went to Opus for dinner. The atmosphere is more of a bar, night club vibe with a large bar to the right as you enter and booths for 4 people along the left side and in front. The menu has an eclectic variety of...smaller plates, which we love, so you can try a lot of different selections. We had the octopus, (hard to cook this so we were looking forward to it) but it was a bit chewy and disappointing, eel with shrimp maki was very good, beet salad was delicious, ahi bowl was good, lobster rangoons were just ok. The sauce with the rangoons didn't seem to compliment the rangoons. Chocolate moose dessert was good, pistachio icecream was good. Not much variety for desserts. There was one special dessert and ice cream to choose from. Our server (Jen?) was very nice but we didn't see her very often and waited for drinks, etc. A busser would have helped or fewer tables per server. The drink prices were reasonable and wine was perfectly chilled. Overall, a nice experience was nice but I am not craving the food to run back anytime soon.More

We had a great lunch. The food was diverse and we thoroughly enjoyed each of the plates we ordered. They don’t have a kids menu but they catered amazingly well for our 6 and 9yo. We would like to come back, but just as a...couple. Highly recommend it!More
