Opus 9 Steakhouse
Lunch at Opus 9This was a lovely lunch for 3. The molten chocolate cake is worth the 13 minute wait. Tortilla soup very flavorful. Chicken potpie was a disappointment. Not much chunks of anything in there. All white gravy.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMlove love love this restaurantthe only problem with this visit ,and go there a lot that sideroom on left to noisy for me6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Bash!!Would recomend to everyone!!

Expected good service, food and atmosphere. And, it was. They gave attention to detail. Added small touches to the dinner that made the evening special. Only one exception was that portions and /or price where questionable.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat resturant. I come everyGreat resturant. I come every time I'm in Virginia. The food is very favorable.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great meal with greatWe had a great meal with great service (Billy)-an all-around special evening.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a special occasion.We dine at least 2-3 times.month at Opus 9, and it is always a "special occasion." Both the food and service are outstanding, and Steve (our preferred server) always makes us feel like valued customers.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and service.Wonderful food and service. Relaxed and comfortable environment, beautiful décor and wonderful service. Darrick took great care of us. Our food tasted so good. I would recommend to anyone traveling to Williamsburg!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat find !!We were very pleasantly surprised with the rare combination of excellent service, delicious food, unusual attention to detail in every way, including food selections and pairings, food accompaniments, sauces, etc, the beautiful contemporary take on the classic American steakhouse ... all at amazingly affordable prices.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience, good foodWe celebrated our 13th anniversary at Opus 9, and enjoyed it very much. The cuts of meat were very good and the sauces appropriate and enhancing.
I take off a point or two for
1) The version of medium rare was somewhat more cooked than the detailed menu description led us to believe... not enough to be medium but definitely less pink than expected.
2) The Ahi Tuna appetizer and the Cheesecake dessert were both quite tasty but not the best we had. Since we normally frequent less expensive restaurants, we expected more.
Admittedly, we would have had to go to three separate venues to reproduce our meal with the best of the best in the area, and it is very difficult to get a steak cooked rare enough, so Opus 9 was overall a bright highlight.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOpus Fun!!!Hats off to you guys again!! Food was awesome, sevirce was off the chart.,see you real soon!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMamazingIf you like wine ask for Steven, he made our meal an experience! He is a wine expert and helped me make an excellent choice.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOPUS 9 is wonderful!We are Opus regulars and always have a wonderful experience, but this time in particular we had an exceptional time. The food was cooked to perfection. We ordered the oysters for an appetizer, for our entrees we ordered the braised short ribs with carrots and mashed potatoes, and meatloaf with mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes and to top it all off the tiramisu for dessert. Enough about the food. The reason we come to the Opus is because of the food but most of all the service, David, our waiter is always on top of his game. We ask for him every time we dine at the restaurant. We enjoy the conversation and professionalism mixed in with a ton of laughter and truly feel that David makes the occasion. OPUS 9 should be on everyone's radar.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA lovely birthday dinner!We're Williamsburg residents, and Opus 9 has long been one of our favorite places. Tourists seem to have discovered it too, so a reservation is usually needed, even at lunch. Recently we celebrated my husband's birthday at dinner there. Service was excellent as usual, attentive but not obtrusive. We shared a salad and each had a fillet with baked potato - delicious! There is an excellent selection of wines by the glass. At the end of dinner Opus 9 presented us with a complimentary birthday cupcake with candle (big enough for two to share), and we had after-dinner coffee served in a french press. Altogether a lovely occasion. Thank you Opus 9.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!!I called to change my reservations since my wife was not feeling well on our original date. I mentioned in passing that it was her birthday so I wanted to change the reservation which the hostess did with no issue. When we arrived the next day we were greeted and my wife was told happy birthday! There was also a card at the table for her birthday and when the server arrived she too addressed my wife by name and told her happy birthday! The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. At the end of the meal a cupcake with a candle in it arrived which surprised both of us. Their attention to detail and care of the customer is something that I have not experienced in many years. An absolute outstanding dining experience!!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWHAT A GREAT RESTAURANTOpus 9 Steakhouse has gained the respect of all the locals in Williamsburg. Lunch is a great time to have a meeting or for the "girls" to get together for eating and chatting..Dinner is a very special time at Opus 9, with wonderful steaks and seafood and service that can't be beat. I would suggest anyone try this gem!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a great dinnerWe went for our anniversary and it was everything we hoped for. From the Champagne to the lobster tail it was amazing!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceEverything was great. Do not like the steak table ceremony where you are asked to cut your steak immediately to ensure that it was properly cooked. They shine a flashlight on your cut steak. Use a kitchen thermometer and spare me the drama.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of our favoriteThis is one of our favorite restaurants in Williamsburg. Prime Rib was fantastic. Always a good food choice.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for special occasionWe went the day before Mother's day. We were seated right away even though it was very busy. Our waiter Al came over in the first couple of minutes to ask if we'd like to order a drink, which we did. Some of the dishes we ordered were the scallop appetizer (very good), hamburger (very good), salmon (very dry), filet (excellent), and sea bass (good). We ordered a couple slices of key lime pie for the table and they were very good, not too sweet. The cappuccino was awesome. Our waiter was great. He was there when we needed something but never intrusive, and he was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. Something is missing regarding atmosphere, Maybe not enough windows. It's pretty enough. Would definitely return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day LunchWould recomend to everyone. Food was off the chart GOOD!! Hats off to the chef!! Waiter was Outstanding. See you Soon!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstandingOpus 9 has, on occasion, a Kobe Beef Tomahawk steak -- if they have it, GET IT! Great meal. As always the service was great. We actually stayed four hours and all that time were served and left alone all at the same time!! They were thoughtful and gracious. Highly recommend Opus 9.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary...I stumbled across this restaurant on the Internet when I was booking a weekend get away for my husband and I for our anniversary. What a find. My husband and I had such a wonderful meal. The waiter, David, was fantastic his recommendations were spot on. We really enjoyed the fact that once he brought our drinks to us that he allowed us some time to enjoy them before placing our order. We have gone to a pricey restaurant before and they rushed us through our meal it was hard to enjoy it. But not here, for the amount of money that you are paying for an excellent meal you want to be able to sit back and enjoy the experience. If we should ever find ourselves back down in the area, I will definitely come back!!!!!!!!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMoverjoyedI loved the comfortable setting of this place. The service was great, and the food was outstanding.

It was wonderful to say the least. Our waiter, Steve, was extremely professional and added to the enjoyment of the evening.

Wonderful lunch menu, well priced. Great dinner menu with interesting specials. Billed as a steak house, Opus 9 truly does steaks right but my wife and daughter rave about the seafood selections that they've tried. The appetizer oysters are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The wait staff is well-trained, knowledgeable about the menu items, and make you feel welcome -- really a class act. We've dined here for lunches and dinner and found the service, food quality, and ambiance to be consistantly the best around. Regardless of the time of day you can't go wrong here.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the two best in WilliamsburgOne of the two best in Williamsburg......service is great and while some menu items can be pricey for this person, the lunch and dinner specials are more than fairly valued.

A pleasure to have a dinner with friends undisturbed by intrusive music that is being now imposed on the customers most everywhere else (the discrete piano performance very much appreciated).4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat selection and wonderful staffOn our recent weekend getaway to Williamsburg, I searched far and wide to find a steakhouse with a fine dining experience. I settled on reservations at Opus 9. My husband and I frequent another national chain of steakhouses, Ruth's Chris and Opus 9 provided a very similar dining experience. The staff was extremely attentive and the food was absolutely phenomenal. The great thing about the location was that it is adjacent to a fantastic little shopping town center. Our server was simply the best and I am so happy we decided to spend our evening with Opus 9.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time @Opus9. Met foeSecond time @Opus9. Met foe dinner with friends.

Personal service and attentive. Ambiance is warm and inviting.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe excellent, well pricedThe excellent, well priced prime rib special was better than any we've had in a quality steak house. The price for the four course meal was better than most restaurants chagre for just the entree and the slow roasted prime rib melted in your mouth. The French onion soup is a must have when you dine at Opus 9.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
