Opus has a great atmosphere and is one of those places you can go to alone and sit at the bar and not feel odd. But if you can also feel welcome as a couple for a special night out or friends having drinks and appetizers. The bar has a terrific selection. Apps are great, and the sushi is the... More

You can't go wrong with Opus. Haven't had a bad meal yet, and we go there quite frequently. They have a fantastic burger, steak frites are outstanding, bacon wrapped medjool dates are a must try. The wife orders Sushi and I'm not a big fan of it, but opus is a different story. They have fantastic sushi, and their presentations... More

We’ve heard some good buzz about Opus and were excited to check it out. The wait was 45 minutes at 6 p.m. on a Saturday, so the hostess encouraged us to get a drink in the lounge. She took our number to text us when a table became available, which we thought was a nice touch. The lounge area is... More

Try a new cocktail, just tell the server what you like and they will come back with something fabulous! Especially if you like to try something new. True with the food as well. And if you are not sure, they sometimes bring over a little taste. I was warned about a drink I wanted to try and the waiter insisted... More

Hello Heidi, Thank you so much for the kind words! This is exactly what we love to hear. Some of our cocktails can be pretty adventurous, so I always encourage our servers and bartenders to give out samples. It's great because you get to try something really different without committing to an entire drink that may not be to your... More

This was our second trip to Salem, Ma and our second trip to Opus. We went the first time in October for dinner and it was delicious. My husband got a burger, it was cooked to perfection. We got a sushi app and it was perfect. We also had specialty cocktails and they were divine. Then we met a friend... More

So we had planned to go to Firenze, but it was closed, so we ended up here. It was a great alternative and we likely wouldn't have known about it otherwise which would have been a shame! The service was great and the food was really delicious. So happy we had dinner here!

Got an email saying I had a $10 discount that could be used in the next 48 hours. We decided to give Opus another chance for my birthday after the disappointment of last year. Altogether positive experience this time! When greeted at the door, we again asked for a "quiet" table away from the bar and was told "certainly" and... More

Andrew was our server and he was outstanding. We had the shishito peppers for an app. For entrees my husband had the cod and risotto which was beautifully presented and equally delicious. My coconut tofu dish was so colorful, flavorful and filling I took half home. I have gluten sensitives & the menu & kitchen were accommodating. The wines he... More

You must go there if you want to try unusual yet delicious concoctions. They have Karaoke downstairs on Tuesday nights to boot. I had two awesome drinks, and sampled my friends' drinks as well. The lighted bar is very very cool.
