    My wife and I were in the area on a short holiday and went to Opus9 for an Aniversary Dinner. We received a brochure at our resort and went to try the Concierge Special. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and seated promptly. Our server was excellent and brought us the bottle of wine ordered before taking our order. The food we ordered from the special menu was excellent. The server checked on us at times to ensure everything was up to expectations and the manager stopped by to ensure everything was good. There was no rush and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Highly recommend this location. We were there at 7:00pm on a Monday evening and the restaurant was full. A very good sign. Suggest you make reservations. Will return

    My husband and I were looking for a great place to have a romantic and classy dinner. We took a risk and ate at Opus 9. It is by far the best steak I have ever eaten in my life. Our server was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect. We will be back to enjoy yet another delicious meal there!

    I ate the cowboy cut ribeye which was amazing. Had it made Au Poivere style which was awesome. The seared ahi tuna was also great. Server was a bit slow in refilling drinks but overall the service was good, quick to receive food, and the food was delicious.

    The staff tries hard to please. The steaks are good,and would be reason to return. The crabcakes depended on the filling for flavor and werent impressive.The fries that came with the steak were a bit soggy. The cheesecake was dull.Steak was perfectly prepared and quality was excellent. The fixed dinner specials are the way to go to avoid the staggering prices.

  • What happened to the crabcake?

    Dined on 10/8/2014
    I wanted to take my friends to a special place for lunch. We had not seen each other for years. They were impressed with the ambiance and the waiter was very nice. I suggested the crabcake to my friend who had never eaten here. I raved about the lump crab meat piled high with a light broiling and delicious sauce. The crab cakes were delivered dry and were small scoops that only took up the center of the bun. The sauce was watery and almost florescent in color. I was very embarrassed and apologized to her after we were out of the restaurant. Please keep the quality of food and presentation we have come to expect at this wonderful restaurant. I never want to leave embarrassed again.

    Disappointing! Have been at this restaurant many times, we were always satisfied. We tried the Beef Wellington and we both thought it had a lack of flavor as well as too much grizzle. Presentation of the meal seemed like it was just thrown on the plate. The server had a large party to attend to and made us feel rushed and in the way. Expected more from this lovely restaurant!

    You are greeted at the door by warm and friendly Host/Hostess. Sunday is a great day to dine at Opus 9, wine by the bottle is half price with happy hour 4pm-7pm. Wait staff extremely knowledgeable and do this job well. Made the reservation on-line, loved it, simple and convenient. May be a bit pricey but you get what you pay for. If you are not in the mood for a fine, well prepared steak, there are non steak items on the menu that are absolutely fabulous!! The Ahi Tuna as an appetizer....presentation and taste, one word, AWSOME well two, DELISIOUS! To cap off a superb meal, one must save room for desert, cant decide which one is the best; Beethoven's Favorite, Key Lime Pie, New York style cheese cake. Thank you Opus 9

    Very nice meal. The server Kara was excellent. The food was prepared well, needed a little more flavor on appetizers, and oysters kept this from being 5 stars around. A very solid effort. The price is a little high, but with food prices today it is no wonder. The young man assisting server needs a little more polish, needs to relax a little, almost had a big mishap with wine glasses on 2 occasions, Kara picked him up though, great team work.

    We go to OPUS 9 for steaks & are consistently pleased. Service is efficient & steaks are cooked as ordered. The wine list is extensive & the Sunday night half-price wine night is a good value. The decor is pleasing & in fall& winter, a seat beside the fireplace is especially enjoyable.

    Great brunch for the hearty eater. A bit pricey for seniors who don't eat a huge meal. Excellent choices, all prepared in typically excellent Opus 9 fashion. The prime rib was outstanding. It was our first time at the Sunday Brunch and we found the layout a bit confusing due to limited space. Overall a great treat.

    For Sunday brunch, found some diners' dress code questionable (e.g., shorts, dirty sneakers, T-shirts). Young kids (with parents) slowed down the buffet line considerably. These factors detracted from what would otherwise have been an outstanding dining experience. Have been to Opus 9 for a number of dinners and found the atmosphere excellent, but brunch was alittle disappointing. Nevertheless, will be back

    My wife & I visit Opus 9 several times every few months. But this past Saturday night, the service and food were both way off. We understand that all restaurants have an off night, but after visiting for more than 3 years Saturday was different. We plan to go again in the near future to see if it was a one time fluke.

    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.

    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.
