This is a review for the new seafood Opus that recently opened. We has the sea bass which was the best we've ever had. We also had the snapper which was prepared perfectly. What made the dinner even better was the service. Our waiter, Zach, did the best job making us feel at home. He had knowledge of wine, food.... More

0 stars, if possible! Food was decent. I had red snapper and my husband had steak. Took a veryyy long time to receive and when we finally got it, the food was lukewarm. 4 locals were seated next to us and started having a loud, drunken conversation. My husband complained to the manager and was asked if WE would rather... More

We attended a rehearsal dinner on the upper floor and it was a terrific venue for the dinner. The room was quite large and included a bar. There was plenty of space to mingle. We enjoyed appetizers, shrimp, fruit, etc. For dinner there were three choices, filet mignon, red snapper with crap and shrimp and chicken marsala. All were wonderful.... More

I live in the area and we struggle to find food that is not the typical touristy fried stuff. The Boardwalk pretty much dominates and I never go there. Opus is a place I know I can go and get great food, great service, with no pretense. Wind selection is decent although standard restaurant type prices. Overall, on of my... More

Always great. Service and food are excellent. Good wine list as well. Can get loud but that is fine. A bit pricey but worth it. Highly recommend surf and turf and the sea bass when they have it. Shrimp cocktail is very good.

I have passed this bistro and seen ads for it often, so finally a friend and I decided to give it a try. We chose outdoor seating on the patio overlooking the canal--ok, but not quite the same as open water. I was not that hungry so ordered the traditional French onion soup and shrimp and grits (both appetizers). When... More

We were celebrating my brother in law's and my birthdays. When we got there, it was crowded; a good sign. After our meal I could see why. The food and service were both fantastic. I had the red snapper with blue crab meat and shrimp. My wife and her sister split the soft shelled crab. And my BIL had the... More

Local hangout. Food is good to adverage. Some days are better than others. Always has a crowd in the evenings. Make reservations for weekend evenings and nights.
