Our waiter forgot my Mac n Cheese. Also she did not check on my table. If she did, I would had reminded her about the missing item but I was done with my meal by the time she came back. The food was great.

The service and food were phenomenal. There was a small noise (sounded like maybe a squeal from the wine draft line?) where our table was located, but otherwise everything was lovely. Our server was fantastic!

Wonderful server. Interesting draft wines! My sons filet was the best item on the menu. My seafood trio was good but next time the filet!chocolate desert was to die for. Uber expensive.

One of our favorite Williamsburg restaurants because it's always so good! Went for our anniversary over the weekend and everything was just great- food, service, drinks and dessert. We'll be back the next time we visit. You can't go wrong here.

Lackluster food overall I would say. Nowhere near quality or taste of a Ruth Chris or Fleming’s, which is what was expected especially for price. My gf had the pork which was much better than my bland ribeye and under seasoned garlic potatoes. Would not go back especially considering the prices.

We had a nice dinner at Opus 9. We enjoyed a quiet dinner and excellent meal. I ordered a an oyster appetizer recommended by our waiter, Jason. I told him that the fried oysters were still my favorite -- he came back with a small portion. The group had steaks and a seafood combination. Still number one choice on my trips to the Burg.

In contrast to previous visits, the food part of our experience left a lot to be desired. Several items were not fresh tasting. Soup of the day deserved to be put back in the can, figuratively speaking. A plate that was supposed to be served with brioche instead came out with a hard and dry cornbread. Although service was very good, I do expect the server to spot irregularities in items before delivery to the guest. If one ventures into off-menu items, be prepared for some surprises (example: weak expresso $5.95).
This has for some time been one of our A list restaurants, but given our experiences since the reopening not any more. Repeat visits will be less frequent.

Excellent steak, cooked to perfection. Social distancing in place with plenty of room between tables. My wife and I actually split the 12 oz Oscar 9 and an appetizer, finished off with Key Lime Pie. This was a very pleasant experience, with attentive, professional service. Would recommend and will return the next time we’re in town.

We hadn’t been in a couple years and decided to visit again with a couple out of town guests. Everything was just as good as we recalled - excellent service, thorough wine list... but my steak was far too fatty (even for a ribeye that is supposed to be marbled), and the red skin mash was a under seasoned. Everything else was delicious though and I expect we’ll return in the future.

Thank you for your post. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your visit but I am so sorry the rib-eye was too fatty. If ever such any anomaly occurs with any steak, please let us know when you are here & we will be happy to replace the steak for you immediately as we never wish for a guest to leave feeling unsatisfied with our beef. I have spoken with our chef & I am assured that each rib-eye will be properly marbled. We look forward to another chance to serve you a steak that is truly a cut above.

The place had a very musty dirty smell. The crabmeat was not fresh and a poor taste. The soups were good. I have been at Opus 9 many times and this was the worst

For the first time lunch was not first r ate. My salad want not attractively plated...just thrown on and the rolls were stale and not warm.
Our server was willing, but needed to be reminded of condiments for my friend's burger.
The hostess did not check our table to see how things were.
Maybe it was just an off day.

We, a Birthday celebration with 7, were all by ourselves outside for a late Sunday brunch. COVID distancing was not a problem and the wait staff was very careful. The brunch food (vegetable omelette, tenderloin with eggs Benedict, waffles, shrimp and grits, seafood omelette) were well prepared and delicious. Two entries off the dinner menu (crab cakes, beef tenderloin) were excellent as well. Deserts (molten chocolate cake, cream brûlée, bananas foster cheesecake, flourless chocolate cake) were wonderful. Service was professional and friendly.
