  • Opus 9 - they know how to treat customers

    Dined on 11/13/2014
    As a woman dining with abother female, I always am sensitive to how a restaurant and their staff treat me. Opus 9 always makes me feel valued. The service is fantastic ... they come back and check water or other beverage levels discreetly and always enquire as to how the food is. They never make me feel like they are in a rush to turn the table over. You can't go wrong dining there.

    This place is always packed at lunch time due to their wonderful $10 lunch specials. There is a nice selection for any taste. Our group had the raspberry chicken salad, the steak salad and their chicken pot pie. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. Wine specials at lunch are a bargain. Desserts are a little pricey but are very good. Most likely purchased from a supply house, but still a good quality. Service is usually very good unless the place is packed. We had very good service. Try it for lunch. Dinner prices are out of sight and not worth $65 for a steak.

    Since we found this restaurant 3 years ago we have made it a must go every time we visit Williamsburg. Great food, service and ambiance and close to all of the hotels. The filet mignon is one of the best I've ever had, cooked perfectly and very flavorful. We dined on Sunday and it was half-price bottles of wine. Not only did we have a great meal, we also had a great bottle of wine for half price. A very pleasant surprise indeed. I'm already looking forward to our next visit to Williamsburg because I know Opus 9 will be on the itinerary.

    Wanted to give Opus 9 a try. I like steak and I have had few good ones, but I would have to put Opus 9 at the top the list. The staff was great, very knowledgeable and patient even place is full they make you feel like you are top priority. Great place for special occasions or a date night.

    Our first time to Opus 9 might be our last. I took my wife on the 22nd anniversary of our first date, but the service completely ruined it. He was friendly, but the rest was poor. He didn't know how to pour a beer; my glass had 4 inches of foam after he poured half the bottle in, so I had to wait to drink it. Before the foam had even subsided, he returned and poured the rest of the bottle in the glass, which overflowed, so we ate our meal on a soaked tablecloth that smelled like beer (he removed it from our tab, but never offered me another and never offered us a different table or even a new tablecloth). I also had to stop him to ask for more toppings for my potato, as he didn't check back again after initially asking us about the taste.

    Our table server, Steve, was very helpful and kind when he served us. He made sure that the wine I received was the best kind seeing that he brought over a sample to taste and my first choice was not my favorite. He gave me and my date time to ourselves and stepped in when we needed assistance. We ordered rockfish and the porterhouse. Both were superb and cooked to our taste. The setting was very romantic and perfect for a date or a get together with a friend or two. We also received free champagne as it was our anniversary and 2 free cigars from the manager. It was an amazing experience and we both agreed to stop by again if we got the chance, knowing that we are from out of state.

    Wonderful lunchtime deals await diners. Their $10 has something for everyone. Our party dined on a crab cake sandwich and their house chicken salad. Both were very good with generous portions. Service was very good. Worth a trip to New Town for a special lunch.

    It was an all around 5-star experience for my family, friends and I. The service, food and ambiance was finominal and greater than expected; however, I did not appreciate the grammatical corrections to my friend from my waiter, I found that quite rude and disrecpectful to a patron of the restaurant. Being that I am only 17 and an Emergency Medical Technician, I can honestly say people do see teenagers as ignorant but talking down to a customer is un-caled-for. It may have been intended as a joke but was embarrassing in front of other patrons of the establishment. Other than that minor set back to the review, 5-stars all the way and I plan on returning quite often.

    The perfect server with time to be friendly but not forward. Perfectly cooked steak and tuna. A bit less salt in the Asian slaw would make it better, but the garden salad was so good with a fresh basil vinegarette that I had it for desset one night despite the flourless chocolate tart being fantastic. The servings are way too big in the steakhouse tradition. Plan to have great leftovers.

    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

    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.

    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.
