I have been visiting Opal for the last four or so years since I used to live in the Ventura area. I have since moved away and whenever I find myself in the Ventura/Santa Barbara area, I set aside an evening to go have dinner. There are two MUST have at Opal: 1) The PERFECT Martini. Let me just say...this drink made me change the way I drink martini's anywhere. It is hands down my favorite martini anywhere! A must have...and if you are a lightweight no more than two (even with dinner). 2) The lamb - if you don't like lamb...I can't convince you to try this...but otherwise, it is AWESOME. Perfectly cooked and served.
The owners are awesome as well...they can be found on occasion asking how you are enjoying your meal and service. Overall worth every moment. The wait staff is usually very attentive and they have an awesome wine list. There is a wine for every taste and budget. As well as awesome choices for food and appetizers.
Check it out you won't be disappointed! You can go with just a partner or a group. Anything more than six in your group you will probably want to call ahead!
