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.

The atmosphere is nice. Food is really good. A little over priced. Wait staff was polite. The view is nothing spectacular.

Came here with my husband and some of his coworkers and had a lovely meal. The appetizers were definitely the star of the meal and are large enough that they could have been our meals. I ordered the fish dinner special and it was good but not spectacular, I felt as if the sauce overpowered the fish and made it... More
