    Disappointed
    Dined on 9/14/2014
    Let me start by saying that I have eaten at Opus 9 at least a dozen times before and was very happy, that being said my experience on our visit last Sunday was very disappointing. We went for the Beef Wellington Special $29.99 3 coarse meal. It was the worst steak I have ever had and I have had beef wellington before and know what it should be like. Ours was over cooked, tough and not even seasoned properly. There were 4 of us and 3 ordered the special the 4th ordered a different steak entrée It came sliced and was ordered medium. Two of the slices were pink and the rest was well done, She sent it back and the second one looked good butt everyone else was done by now. I expect so much more, Hopefully this was a one time deal.

    My husband and I ordered two rib eye steaks which cost about $45 each. We had to send them back because they were so tough. The restaurant gave us two New York strips to replace them. I was really surprised that a steak restaurant like that would be serving steaks that had to be sent back. They apologized and agreed that the steaks were not suitable to eat.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/12/2014
    We thought an 800PM reservation might mean a dead restaurant. No way. The dining was in high gear. Steaks were perfect and perfectly cooked. Only missing element was au gratin potatoes. Small portion, underseasoned, and not all that fresh. But, waiter Sean was fantastic, introducing us to a great local wine. Whole evening was fantastic.

    Kara was our Server, but each waitstaff was available to assist. It is a small intimate environment perfect for a couple or 2 to enjoy an evening out. The food was very good and was timely. We shared the Chateaubriand for Two and it was enough for us but of course we had to add more veggies just to try them out. The selection was varied enough to accommodate differing tastes. All in all we greatly enjoyed our Anniversary Dinner!!

    An all around enjoyable experience. Our group had nothing but rave reviews for the good and wait staff. The 'special $10 lunch' menu is varied and the Kobe Meatloaf is amazing.... Love the presentation of the yeast rolls and butter. The player piano is a nice touch too and adds to the relaxing atmosphere. Can't wait to try their jazz brunch.

  • Very Disappointed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    I dined here 2 years ago and was very excited to bring my fiance and share the experience. To my dismay, this was definitely not what I recall from my previous visit. First, our waiter seemed very disinterested in us or in being there. While other waitstaff were very friendly and accommodating to their patrons-asking "have you dined with us before?", "Our special tonight is..". I noticed that other tables had a card with their waiter's name on it-none of our server's tables had that. He was quite simply void in his service. Secondly, our steaks were ordered medium rare and by the time we were able to eat them (due to them continuing to cook on the plate), they may have been medium well? The au gratin potatoes were crisp and inedible.

    I've been to Opus 9 for dinner serveral times, but this was my first Sunday brunch experience. The service and atmosphere is always outstanding. The jazz trio added a splendid touch. The selection of brunch items was great. HOWEVER, the scones were out of this world. The best I've had outside of England. Service is always a treat, as the wait staff is never imposing but knows just when to appear. Staff have always been inviting and welcoming, especially Brandon and the omlette/carving station commando - (LOL). What a treat. You must experience it for yourself. Enjoy!

    We dined at Opus 9 for dinner for the 1st time and thoroughly enjoyed the food, wine and the service. We requested Shawn as our waiter and found him to be very knowledgeable about the wine list. He steered us to an excellent bottle of wine and made it a great 50th birthday celebration for my wife.

    I surprised my girlfriend with this restaurant for our anniversary while on vacation. The food was top notch and much more then expected. Everyone was very friendly and made sure we were taken care of. I didn't care for where we were seated though, right next to the outside seating door. It was very sunny and became a bit much after a while.

    Had bone-in ribeye cooked medium rare and wife had 8oz filet migon cooked medium and both were cooked to perfection. Sides were also good and dessert was wonderful. Service was great but only issue I had was seating. We were sitting in back dinning room with only one other table occupied. Half way through our meal they sat the table next us and myself and a gentleman sitting at that table made elbow contact a few times due to the proximity of the two tables.

    This was our first time at Opus 9 and we picked it because half our party was coming from Richmond and the other half from Portsmouth. The ambiance was perfect. The noise level was low enough to allow us all to have a wonderful conversation while eating the excellent brunch buffet. The prime rib was fantastic. The service was exceptional. The only negative from any of the party was that the food could have been a tad warmer.

    I met my friend for brunch. The bruch was comparable to those in Williamsburg, at $24 but my, oh, my, the selection was second to none! From traditional brunch items, omelet station, chocolate fondue fountain, steak, chicken, desserts, pasta salads, etc. It was well worth every penny. Maurice, our server, was the most delightful, personable, entertaining person. He was very warm and friendly and quite engaging. If you can get him, it's a bonus! They also had a duo who played Frank Sinatra and that was a very nice surprise. Well Done Opus! I'll be back :)

    We were visiting from Pennsylvania and I wanted to buy a good dinner for our hosts. I did some research and landed on this wonderful restaurant. After recently touring steakhouses (Morton's, Capital Grille, Sullivan's, Ruth Chris, and other Philadelphia steakhouses), my wife and I agree that Opus 9 was better than the Philly-area steakhouses. From the appetizer's through the dessert, everything was tasty and on point. Peter Luger's in Brooklyn still holds my #1, but Opus 9 is my new #2. Our waiter was wonderful, as well!
