    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.

    I took my wife for her birthday on a Sunday. She had the crab cakes and I had the seafood trio. Food was great. Service was very attentive and timely. A bottle of wine is half off on Sundays which is a plus. The only caution is that it is expensive.

    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 always experience the highest level of professional dining service accompanied by an excellent meal. This steakhouse always provides the most tender cuts of meat you will ever want to try along with a varied mouth-watering menu. If you are looking for a romantic, intimate, special occasion meal, you won't go wrong making your reservation at Opus 9.

    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!

    My husband and I really love Opus 9, but this last weekend I took my daughters and was sadly disappointed because the food tasted so different. The usual fries with the hamburgers were totally different and honestly not very good at all. My raspberry vinaigrette chicken salad also tasted different/not nearly as good as usual. Hope they fix this as Opus 9 is my favorite place.

    I am always skeptical ordering steak at a restaurant, if it is not better than what I can do at home why bother. Opus 9 had an excellent steak it was definitely one of the best I had at any restaurant. I was in the mood for a surf and turf and we ordered the fillet topped with crab meat. Fillet steaks are a likely tricky to cook, I went with the large 12 oz and it was cooked to perfection, Medium Rare. I will look forward to returning! We had a great table and service was superb.

    As usual, my huband and I chose Opus 9 for our Anniversary dinner, always one of our favorites places. His swordfish special and my crabcakes were excellent. Yet, the dramatic rise in prices on the menu and the diminishing niceties that used to accompany a meal (dinner mints, no anniversary recognition, etc.) will no doubt make our visits less frequent. If you have an early dinner as we did, your conversations may have to compete with the noisy happy hour bar.

    The $40 ribeye, the least expensive steak on the menu, and the easiest, most forgiving steak for a restaurant to pull off, was unmarbled, tough and tasteless. Three people, the server, the maitre d'hotel, and a third server picking up the check, all asked how the steak was, all in an entirely perfunctory way, and had no response when I told them. I'd expect a $40 steak to be prime beef. If Opus 9's supplier purveyed this steak as prime, shame on all of them. To call it choice would have take a suspension of judgement. The sides were grim, too. À la care creamed spinach was soupy and mulched; potatoes au gratin lacked un gratin, and were tasteless escalloped potatoes. Overpriced, mediocre, pretentious restaurant.

    I was underwhelmed by their signature steak, The Oscar. It was overcooked and it wasn't seasoned well. The bernaise sauce made it more flavorful. But overall, it was not a great steak. I wouldn't order it again. Also, once we were finished eating and I had paid, the waiter didn't really return to ask us if we needed anything although we were finishing a bottle of wine. I was disappointed. The food wasn't worth the expense.

    We very much enjoyed our lunch at Opus 9. It was a pleasant opportunity to sit outdoors and have some well prepared food. You can get the best club sandwich here and the French Onion Soup is hearty and delicious. And with Martinis that are expertly made one could hardly want for much more. Though our server seemed to be having an off day. He never brought us our place setting or flatware. I had to retrieve some for us. We were also lacking on refills for our water glasses. When he returned with my credit card, there was no credit card slip. I chalk it all up to either an off day for him or lack of experience.
