“Best sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

I was there for a tasting and the sushi they served was the best I've ever had. They also paired it with a great wine to compliment our tasting.

Hello Laura,

So glad you loved the sushi here at Opus. Scott our sushi chef is really talented. We actually just got awarded best sushi on the Northshore. Very exciting. Look forward to seeing you soon.

“My new favorite restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I LOVE this restaurant.

Great atmosphere, great food, very nice wait staff

AND they offer entertainment downstairs at different times during the week

The food is eclectic, different, yummy, inventive. Nice portions and a reasonable price

This restaurant is wonderful for the lunch menu or the dinner menu

Try it . You will like it :-))

“Great small plates and sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We went early for a drink and some small plates. Everything we ordered was done to perfection. My husband ordered the fries which I never like. To my surprise, they were hot, crispy and had great flavor. Best I've ever had!

“STOP!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Tried to treat the wife to Mothers Day brunch...we were seated promptly at a table not adequate to accommodate 4 adults comfortably and then it began...our waitress promptly took our drink order and actually delivered them 26 minutes later. You have read that correctly...26 minutes to deliver 2 Bloody Marys!! During the wait we were treated to numerous refills
of water. Wow...Food eventually arrived and at that point big deal. Soft Shell Crab Benedict was terrible. Eggs were closer to hard boiled and actual crab meat was hard to find...even though both eggs were served with the crab shells under the eggs. Deep fried potatoes completed the presentation. Wife had a spinach omelet that was rated ok. Daughter noted that her veggie omelet was ok too but the side of "Wonder Bread" toast disappointed. Place has great potential. It's attractive and well laid out. Unfortunately my initial experience was awful. Do yourself a favor go to Naumkeag Ordinary. I will return to Opus and give it another chance... but not until
my memories of that terrible meal are gone.

“Good quality; good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

You will not be disappointed. Some portions may be a tad undersized (samosas), but everything is tasty and fresh. Braised beef a keeper.
