    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.

    Seven of my family members went to Opus 9 to celebrate my parent's 56th wedding anniversary. The service was top notch and the food was wonderful! We have been to many of the top restaurants in Williamsburg and always find this one to be the best! Resonable prices and the ambiance is beautiful. Very well trained staff from the hostess to the server and everyone we encountered. We will be back!

    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.

    Steaks and sides were quite good. Service was poor, other diners were seated after us and left before our food even arrived. Manager just commented it was a busy night, no apology, and some tables food game out very fast so the comment didn't help. Expected more.

    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.

    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.

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.
