Been coming here for 7 years and the experience is consistently really good. Service is great and part of what sets it apart from many area restaurants. Steaks are naturally their specialty and they're fantastic. Great ambiance. Staff are very nice and never makes you feel rushed.

Exceptional service by Cody, our server. Friendly, fun with conversation, happily provided suggestions, and made sure we were taken care of. My husband had the salmon and I had the filet. Cooked perfectly, and the suggested au gratin potatoes were terrific. Dessert of cheesecake and creme brûlée were delicious!

Ambience is wonderful, with dimmed lights, light jazz, perfectly set table and may I add how wonderful the bread was? Warm, with honey butter sets the tone for the entire meal.....

Beautiful night.

Great as usual. Food was good and their $10 lunches are a great deal! Only downside was that we decided to eat outside and the pollen was overwhelming. We had to ask the waiter to wipe down our table, which was covered in green dust. They may have wiped them down that morning but by noon it was coated again. All-in-all, a minor inconvenience. It’s one of my friends and my favorite lunch spots!

Opus 9 never disappoints. We were in town for an alumni event at W & M and we took some friends there. The service was great, the lunch choices were varied and interesting, and we each ordered something different. I had barbecue and it was perfect. The onion rings I had with it were also delicious. I cannot say enough good things about Opus 9.

3rd time this year at this establishment.... My steak was under cooked and when it was returned it looked a mess and the manager said I can try again once I told her, I will just eat it (while still under cooked, she just walked away ( MY guest were shocked) and not the same portion size of my crab meat and the sauce was dried up. It was like they left more than half of my crab topping off since they tried to cook the same steak to my desired temp. I decided I will not to go back because of how the manager handled the situation. The sever actually brought out a brownie for me and said this is from me because of how your steak came back out and I saw your face and I could look at the plate and see what she returned to your table (Server Jason very thoughtful and paid attention to detail).

Reservations for an early dinner - 6 PM. The bar was seriously loud due to happy hour. I told the hostess to seat us as far away from the bar as possible. She didn't. Actually put us in the room by the bar and next to the hall to the kitchen. Being an early dinner there was plenty of open tables in the two other rooms. My wife started to sit before I refused the table so we took it. Could hardly hear ourselves talk for about 15 minutes due to the waiter traffic to/from the kitchen and the happy hour. As for dressing up due to it being a nice place, don't bother. One guy dressed like a biker, two others dressed like they came from a sporting event. Not a biggie really considering this is a tourist town but we've come to expect this from Opus.

We enjoyed our time at dinner. My mom and I were celebrating both our birthdays. We do this every year with you. We normally do a lunch but dinner was so nice - a real celebration. Dinner was delicious even though I couldn't eat everything. Mom loved her lobster and my steak was cooked just right. I love eating at Opus 9 - it's always quiet so you can talk and hear each other at the table and the service is always great. Your chef is terrific - even when I want things cooked "well done" the food is done beautifully. Thank you for a great birthday

His food suggestions were spot on. We now have a new favorite restaurant in Williamsburg.

The service was very good. Both of our steak s were prepare excellently and the flavor was outstanding. However my granddaughters garlic masher were cold and very dry. My bake potato was cold. The salad was also very good. My key lime pie portion was small without much flavor. Over all the experience was just above fair only because of the steaks were excellent. For 156.00 plus 40.00 tip for 2.people with out alcohol made it average at best.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. It is also one of the few upscale restaurants in the area. My only comment is it is very pricey. I mean, really over the top expensive. The food is great and service impeccable. Would definitely recommend it to friends but will come with a fair or fare warning. (;

I’ve been here before and the food was excellent so I’m not sure what happened. My steak was bland and over cooked and so was my wife’s seafood. Not what I would expect for a meal that cost $140.

Went to dinner here for birthday. Steaks were very thin cuts. My wife and I both had the cowboy cut ribeye. Mine was cooked correctly but the taste was not good at all. My wife’s was a very poor cut with a solid piece of fat right in the middle of the steak. The manger did remove hers from our bill, but I will not be returning here for another meal.

"The filet mignon and lobster tail was to die for. Combined with a mixed salad an potatoes au gratin and a French onion soup it ended being the most delicious meal I had in awhile. I was a relaxed yet elegant feel and outstanding service. The food came perfectly timed and the champagne by the glass was fantastic.

The Land and Sea dinner (Sundays and Mondays) was one of the best that we and our guests have ever had. Service was excellent and we could talk with no problem (at our ages that's not always true). As one of our friends said "If we lived in Williamsburg, we might come every Monday night for that dinner."

Our server, Austin, was very good, very attentive. The prime rib was extra exceptional this trip. Love the smoked salmon, fresh fruit, etc. A couple of the entree choices were not my favorite this trip, but that's just personal preference and I've never felt that way before. Consistent and excellent as always. My favorite special place.
