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.

Very disappointed since I have frequently dined at Opus 9 and always had a great meal in the past. This time two of three starters were not good. The chowder soup of the day tasted like Campbell’s Chunky Soup from a can. My shrimp cocktail for $14 consisted of five small (definitely not jumbo) shrimp with very little dipping sauce. Poor value and presentation. Main courses were better. Excellent filet mignon and cowboy ribeye. The seafood trio was also very good.

At lunch, I ordered quiche, It was served as a dumpling that had a crust as tough as shoe leather and had cooled by the time it was served at table. Needless to say I did not enjoy lunch. I have eaten lunch here many times over the past years and this is one of the few times I have been disappointed.

Two of us went for lunch and our server, Amanda, was excellent. We had a big booth and were well taken care of. We both did the prime rib sandwich and it was flavorful and good. They always have $10 lunch offerings but nothing we wanted. It is a lovely place to sit and chat with good food.

This was for our anniversary. Luis was a dream waiter. Everything was delicious except for the onion rings. Greasy and no taste. But the French onion soup was amazing! The fillet was like butter! Melt in your mouth and unbelievable taste. Best night ever! Thank you Opus 9!!!

Making reservations through Open Table is a big plus when requesting a great table at an outstanding restaurant like OPUS 9! Information was excellent to provide us enough to book this fine dining eatery! The ladies (2 daughters and partner) asked for their last night on vacation to be a wonderful restaurant experience and OPUS 9 was , as it turns out, a truly remarkable experience!

This is absolutely a gem! The menu is extensive with a heavy emphasis on high quality steak and great seafood. The service was impeccable, and the atmosphere is very classy and well arranged to minimize noise. Our waiter, Travis, could not have been better.

With regard to the noise level, it was very quiet, except a rather boisterous foursome were seated next to us, after our meal had been served, but that could happen anywhere. The restaurant generally was well laid out to feel private and cozy with the tables spaced so any noise issue should be rare.

My tenth time at Opus was disappointing. I had the 12 oz filet and it was cold and the plate it was served on was also cold. No excuse since we were the only diners at the time.

It has been 10 years since we visited Opus 9. We received a Christmas gift and thought it would be the perfect place to celebrate a special event. Service was great, we both had the Seafood Trio, outstanding, Crab cakes. The only negative comment, the overall cost, Opus 9, at least for this couple, see you in another Ten years.

Went for brunch. Unfortunately due to our server we did not get the same experience as those around us. He was clearly busy with something else as we saw other servers taking care of the tables around us wonderfully, but rarely saw him. Would have let a manager know, but the manager never stopped at our table. Far from the brunch we anticipated having or paid for.

Loved every second. Only thing... I recommend different lighting for the booths in the back. I felt like I had a spotlight on me the whole time, and would rather more dim lighting. Overall, great place! Definitely will be back!

My friends and I love Opus 9 lunches! The food is always amazing and the service makes us feel that we're dining in a BIG CITY, not little Williamsburg. We return again and again. Have a party of 6 and we love the "private dining room" when we're there. See you soon!

I have been going there for years and have given it high marks in the past. I usually order the Strip steak Au Poivre and up until now it has always been perfect. This time however the cut of meat was more tendons than one would expect. In fact half of the serving was waste and the sauce was not up to their previous standards.

A caliber of restaurant that one would not immediately guess exists in a smaller sized community the size of Williamsburg. Well rounded food options, service, atmosphere, and for the icing on the cake: specials that allow the pocketbook to stay (almost) intact. Although did not order steak item, from what I could see in the dining area that is a popular mainstay here.

I took my husband out on a date to Opus 9 and he thoroughly enjoyed everything about the restaurant. The food was excellent and the waiter Jon G was very attentive to our needs. We sat in an area that was secluded and romantic making the evening much more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend Opus 9 to my friends. And we will be back soon.
