“Really Enjoyed Opus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Very good Mediterranean food (terrific bouillabaisse), very nice cheese plate, serve-yourself bread table with just excellent breads (about 7-8 varieties), and a good cold foods buffet bar.
Wines by-the-glass were few, but good.
The setting is great (outdoor seating riverside, on the quiet side opposite old Town) so perhaps whereas someplace else the service might be considered a little slow (it was) but here - there is just no hurry to move on.

“Tasty buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

If you like cold food, the buffet is excellent, several cold fish dishes and numerous salads. You won't need a main course. The service is indeed a bit slow, but in this beautiful riverside setting, that doesn't matter.

Thank you for the flowers. Our Antipasti buffet is indeed a speciality of our restaurant. We're happy that you had a nice stay and it would be nice if we could they dine again.

“Good place for drinks and apps”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

I have been to Opus a few times now, and each time has been enjoyable. It has become one of our go-to girls' night restaurants. There is a delicious "salad" plate. It is 26.-CHF for this monster plate that you can fill to the rafters with shrimp, muscles, olives, artichokes, cold pastas, and of course normal salad stuff with delcious bread. That split between a few people is more than enough to enjoy for dinner. Other dishes are a little more expensive, but the portions are big. There is also a fabulous wine list and a really yummy moscato mojito!

It is on the river with outdoor seating available. There is also a little section just for cocktails and a bigger sectio for the dinner guests.

“Good but Expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

Our group of 6 ate lunch here upon arriving in Luzern. The food, except for the burger, was really good. Order a local food and you will enjoy it. The chicken pot pie was very good, cooked in red sauce which was different. The service was an issue. A waitress that could speak English took our order but then the waitress that had our table took over. She spoke just enough English to finish our lunch. She wasn't there to refill drinks so we didn't linger too long after eating. We asked her what the standard tipping policy was and her answer was "2%-30%" which was quite the spread. Later on we realized the 2% was sufficient and she was trying to scam us. Our fault for not realizing it, but yet she shouldn't have tried to take advantage of foreigners. Good food but request a table where the server speaks your language needed and be prepared for an expensive meal.

Dear KisaMesue

Thank you for the compliment to our citchen. We just started in the summerseason, that's why we have a lot of beginner stuff. They have many things to learn. Perhaps there was a little communication Problem and we are really sorry about it. We're looking forward to see you again.

“Great view, mediocre food, terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

My husband and I had dinner here last Friday night. Our waitress was absolutely awful. She was inattentive, slow, and made several mistakes with our meal. My husband had a very mediocre hamburger, and I ordered one of the chicken specials which was plain and underwhelming. We wouldn't return for a meal. However, we did stop by the next night with a friend just to have one of their Moscato mojitos after dinner. That was a much better experience. We had a male waiter who was far more competent (and friendly, to be frank), and the ambience was quite nice, with a beautiful view of the river at night.

Dear L M

We are very sorry for the little desaster... The summerseason just started and we have many new employee. They have to learn many things at the same time and some times they couldn't learn as fast as they should. We hope, that you will be our guest again.
