Opal Restaurant and Bar
exceptional food cloe to Wild DunesThe sister restaurant, Langdon's excellent too, but to far to drive after wonderful wine!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMeverything was perfectwe had a wonderful dinner with two friends....the food was outstanding, especially the steamed clams, and the chitarra pasta. Desserts were excellent, especially the chocolate hazelnut cake. Oh and the salads were spectacular, fresh greens and delicious dressings. The wine was very good, plus the mint-ginger bourbon cocktails were great! Service was excellent and unobtrusive. Room was 80% full, but we were able to hear each other easily. Highly recommend.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMthe waiter, the waiter, the waiterOur first time for dinner. Kyle made a good night a great experience. His knowledge of the menu and the wine list helped to pair a good wine with our meal. We explained our preference for a red wine to go with the local seafood that was featured. Know it was our 46th wedding anniversary he gave us our space but was there on the spot when needed. The charcuterie was terrific, again aided by Kyles knowledge of the available combinations.
Add this restaurant to your list, then ask for Kyle.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food in Isle of Palms areaIf you are on vacation in the Isle of Palms/Wild Dunes area, this is a great restaurant that doesn't require driving all the way to Charleston. We have a condo on James Island, near downtown Charleston, and I can tell you from experience that the food at Opal in Mt. Pleasant (right off the IOP connector) is on par with the best dining on the Charleston peninsula. Don't miss it.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMt. Pleasant GemThis restaurant is just what Mt. Pleasant needed. Downtown quality without having to cross the bridge. Centrally located so it's easy to reach from all points in Mt. P as well as IOP and Sullivan's. Housemade pasta dishes are excellent and the steaks are incredible. My husband had the filet and it was outstanding. The panna cotta was one of the best desserts I've ever had! The only complaint I had is that the sauce on my veal Marsala was a little too sweet for my tastes. We will make this one of our go-to restaurants.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find. Unlikely spotWarm atmosphere. Knowledgable server. Splendid menu. Good house wine selection. A new favorite right outside downtown Charleston in Mt. Pleasant. Location is a bit odd in a small shopping center. We bought gift certificates for friends to try Opals. We liked it a great deal.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMReliably goodI have been here several times. The food is always good and the service top notch. The menu is somewhat limited but given the level of business (it's never been busy on my visits), I suppose that's a necessity.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMYour taste buds will not beYour taste buds will not be disappointed; excellent restaurant!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMouthwatering entrees!Opal is amazing each and every time we visit!

We had a nice evening.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood restaurantWent there for an anniversary dinner. When I made the reservation, I requested a booth in a quiet area if possible because we were celebrating our 22nd anniversary. When I arrived, everyone I spoke to acknowledged our special occasion and they seated me in a large booth in the back corner. Even though they were busy, they set aside a 6 person booth to honor my request - very classy service. On top of that, the food was incredible, the service was top notch, and the wine was also great. A very enjoyable dinner, would definitely recommend to others and we will certainly go back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. Amy,Food was excellent. Amy, our server, was great. We have two suggestions. Offer patrons black napkins so that their black slacks do not end up with white fuzz on them because of the napkins.
Second suggestion is regarding hostess seating of patrons. We arrived with plenty of 4 top tables. We were seated at a small table for two. When we asked to be moved we were told they were reserved for larger groups. Not true. Not only were 4 top used for 2 but the large booths were given to parties of two. What did we do wrong?4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dinner and Atmosphere!Once again the food was amazing. Still one of my favorite, if not most favorite restaurant in the Charleston/Mount Pleasant area!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. Great waitExcellent food.
