    Our meal was wonderful. We enjoyed the snails, baby corn and crab gazpacho, filet mignon and crab cakes. Each were prepared with a delicious twist. The Devil’s in the detail cakes topped it off perfectly. Our server was great as well. Will definitely return!

    Our first visit to L'Opossum in three years...post-covid. It was just as we remembered it...great service and outstanding food. My wife loved her crab cakes; significant because she's Maryland born. My filet steak dinner was delicious, as expected. Looking forward to our next visit to L'Opossum...highly recommended!!

    All the hoopla associated with L'Opossum is justified! Impeccable service from Susan who clearly knows every item served (and made spot-on recommendations) to the bright and fresh ingredients presented beautifully, to the utter feeling of bliss when eating - it deserves all the praise! We had the corn and crab soup (ridiculously delicious), the Faberge egg w/ lobster salad, roe & smoked salmon, their take on a Wellington - perfectly cooked filet with pastry "purse" of goodies, and the fois gras with its little fruits of fig, apple & blackberry. So happy, so very happy. Wonderful dinner.

    L'Opossum is a unique and very special restaurant. Their building is nothing to talk about on the outside, but once inside, you feel like one of the family. The walls are lined with a variety of art and the tables and bar are welcoming and comfortable. But what really impresses one is the staff, who seem to be in constant motion attending to all of the customers. Our waitress perfectly described in detail some of the specials as well as any entre the we were curious about. My wife and I both had different appetizers, both delicious and quite different from the mainstream. The same applied to our entrees in that each introduce so many delicate flavor nuances that you have to pause at each bite to embrace the talent of the chef. We concluded our dinner with an amazing variation of a Creme Brulee, OMG that was very good. L'Opossum also offers good quality wine by the glass (or bottle) at reasonable prices. Being special, plan to make your reservation well in advance!

    Ooo lala. This restaurant is a dining experience not to be missed. From entering through the curtained front door til we walked back out 2 hours later, it was exquisite. The ambiance is like no other, the food, familiar but yet so unusual, the attentive but not hovering staff, were all just perfect. We loved it. Thank you.

    We dined last night to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. From the moment you enter in the doors your experience begins. This is my favorite restaurant to dine in hands down. David Shannon is just first class all the way. Touché to our fabulous meals last night and my Violet La femme just superb. That still remains my favorite cocktail of all time. Here’s to our next dining experience with you. If you want something truly unique go to L’Opossum and you’ll have the most enjoyable dining experience ever.

    Everyone enjoyed their meals. i had a special: Hake with sauce and vegetables; it was very good, not special. Someone else had filet and that was great. Lobster/ mac and cheese and they really enjoyed it. Crab cakes were really good, not special. Appetizers: I also had oysters and they were terrific. Escargot was great. All desserts were special.

    Every time I’ve eaten at L’Opossum it has been immaculate. Amazing service, a great vibe and atmosphere, and the food is sublime. They have the best steak I’ve ever had, the best crab cakes I’ve ever had. All the ingredients come together in a thoughtful and exciting way that feels perfectly balanced. It’s the best place in town place for a special night out and an unforgettable culinary experience.
