Originally we were seated in a room that had a temperature that was overly cool so our waiter found us a table in another room , which we appreciated.

And when I accidently dropped an Egg Benedict on the floor while trying to put it on my plate, I picked it up by hand, put it on the tablecloth and told someone on the staff. Sorry for the mess!

Waiter was attentive and very pleasant.

I always enjoy OPUS 9!

Can't say enough good stuff about this restaurant. It is now a must stop whenever we're in Williamsburg. I had Filet with Lobster Tail and both were perfect. My wife had the Filet Oscar which was amazing. Service is excellent, cocktails expensive but really good. This is a good example of you get what you pay for- expensive but totally worth it. can't wait to get back!

Service and food were top notch. I would easily go back here again. Steak was cooked to perfection, sides were tasty ( cream spinach) and side serving were large. Only downsides were the kids whose parents didn’t know any better than to bring their noisy kids

We always go to Opus 9 whenever we are in Williamsburg. Never disappointed with the excellent wait staff, service, food and wine. We made a reservation and were seated by the beautiful fireplace. The portions are perfect! Loved the bread basket and creamy butter at the beginning of the meal. Can't wait to go back next time!

Long weekend in the Burg. Good dinner at Opus 9 Saturday night. Kept it simple - ordered steak and a baked potato and the service and food were great (although my steak was a bit undercooked). We were also there on Wednesday night - was not thrilled. I’ve been ordering the fried oysters for years - they were buried in fried leeks. I’m focused on the oysters. My wife ordered a steak that wasn’t cooked and had to be sent back. Did not expect a rare steak - she had ordered one prepared medium. By the time her meal came out I was already finished. My meal was uninspiring - I ordered the seafood trio - shrimp were bland, scallops were large and flavorless and the crab cake was okay. I checked the menu Saturday and it described a variety of sauces with the seafood trio - maybe they’re supposed to taste bland.
Long story short - I had a reservation for Thursday night that I cancelled. Opus 9 has been my go to place in the Burg. Kitchen needs to get a handle on preparing steaks - it’s a steakhouse and should be simple enough to cook a steak. Bland doesn’t sell - I can steam up some bland food too. Not easy to go all in with Opus 9 if you can’t deliver.

Awsome steaks, perfectly prepared, served in a comfortable but luxurious setting. I also recommend the Sunday and Monday night special surf and turf dinner at a very reasonable price. This is one of the very best places in Williamsburg.

Nice service, but food was over seasoned and overpriced. Filet mignon was cooked well but not tender and too salty. Calamari was soggy. Disappointing, because we had an amazing meal there several years ago. Won’t go again. Too expensive to take another chance.

We both had the six oz. filet. One medium and one rare. Both were cooked as ordered and were juicy and delicious. The wine list was extensive by the glass and bottle with a good price range. We have been here several times previously and never disappointed.

I took my boyfriend here for a birthday dinner. This is an excellent steakhouse. It is on the more expensive side but it's well worth it. The food is outstanding; I had the filet mignon and I could cut it with a butter knife, it was that tender. The staff is also attentive, personable, and helpful without being overbearing. Even the manager stopped by to ask how our evening was going. We both had a wonderful time and would definitely go again. If you have an anniversary, birthday, or other celebration on your horizon, this is the place the go.

This was the perfect place to celebrate our first wedding anniversary! The food was delicious, and our server Jacob was so polite. We did not have to wait very long for each course to be served either. The only "complaint" was that the soundtrack started over about 15 minutes after we got there - but the selection was so good that we didn't mind! They played instrumental versions of movie soundtracks, so it was fun to guess the movie while we listened.

Opus 9 is one of our favorite restaurants and one of the best steakhouses in the country! Always great atmosphere, impeccable service and delicious food. This visit was no exception. Caprese and spinach salads were some of the best we’ve ever had - fresh and delicious. Opus 9 has some of the most tender and flavorful steaks you’ll find anywhere. We both had the filet mignon, simply salted and grilled perfectly medium. Outstanding! Potato and asparagus side dishes were delicious. Top off the meal with fresh berries and creme brûlée and you’ve got one of the best meals you’ll ever eat! If you go to Williamsburg and you like great steak Opus 9 has to be on your dining list!

Wonderful dinner experience in a beautiful restaurant!! The steak was cooked perfectly and the New Orleans Shrimp appetizer was amazing. The sauteed vegetables could have been better- they were not on par with the rest of the meal but altogether a great meal.

My wife and I have been coming here for 5 years. We are from out of state. Opus 9 is by far one of the best fine dining restaurants you will find anywhere. Service is exceptional, food is great. Get the filet without the bone and you will not be disappointed. Servers will take care of everything.
We've only frequented the restaurant for dinner, but they do have a bar area, but have never been in there.

Steaks were very good. The baked potatoes and steak fries / wedges were dry, overcooked to the point of inedible. Service was spotty with George. Inconsistent on things as simple as refills (hot food delivered with empty glasses on the table and had to wait to for several minutes to get refills; happened several times throughout the course of meal). Also dropped off dessert menu, came back 20 minutes later with bill at which point I told him he could take dessert menus). Bill was wrong, disappeared for 15 more minutes until I followed him to physically get the updated bill from him. Basically 35-40 minutes from completing meal to getting bill.
