“Chance drop in turns terrific.”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

We were in Punta Gorda for the Christmas boat parade and the restaurant we planned to go to was packed. So we went for a walk and found OPUS and had a wonderful dinner. Our server, Yolanda, was very professional and friendly and while we were dressed somewhat casually for a fine dining establishment she treated us with the same respect that better dressed patrons received. Two of our party had the breast of duck which was excellent - it was paired with arugula and squash - we don't find squash very often in restaurants and it was a welcome surprise. The mahi tuna was also an excellent choice - seared on the outside and very rare inside as requested. The wine selection is good and the decor is lovely. All in all a much better dinner than we would have had if our first restaurant choice had been available. We'll be back!

“Simply the best in Downtown Punta Gorda !”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Just have to write about my favorite restaurant : love absolutely everything about Opus, their cocktails are amazing and they even have a selection of fine French wines ..
Check out their bar menu, lost of vegetarian and some vegan choices as well on the menu
My favorite ? Yolanda's Margarita and Vegetable Tempura at the bar … Or their Seabass as an entree .. all is simply the Best !

“The best evening in a long time!!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

I wish the rating scale had 10's because this jewel would qualify!! From the time you walk up the side walk and have a seat at the inviting tables out front where you can watch the world roll by or cross the threshold into the bar you are greeted like you are part of a very happy family!!
Then you start to see and smell DELICIOUS entrees and appetizers streaming past your table and your mouth starts watering! When your food arrives you are anything but disappointed as you sink your teeth in!!
I've got to say I've become an Opus devotee in a very short time whether I'm meeting folks for cocktails and a snack or we're staying for dinner!! It is just a great place to be!!

“My Favorite”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Opus is THEE best restaurant in downtown Punta Gorda. The staff welcomes you with a Cheers type hello like they've known you for years even if its your 1st time. Once you try Opus you will be a regular just like me. Opus, its where the locals go!!
