As always our meal was great. Our favorite place for a special event and a fine steak, when you want to get a little dressed up.

For the second time in a row we were told we had to hurry up and order. I’m sorry this is unacceptable as other restaurants in the area never rush us.

Overall pretty good. Ambiance was nice, lighting, etc very comfy. Steaks were both undercooked, wife's was undercooked enough she sent hers back to be cooked more. Side dishes weren't particularly great either, not very flavorful. Expected a little better for money and type of restaurant. Server seemed a little snobby but was ok, like we were low class or beneath restaurant for his preference. We were dressed casually but got that vibe from him. Other servers seemed more friendly to us than he did.

First visit but definitely not the last. Food and service were top notch. The only thing I would suggest is providing nutritional information on the menu and/or website for those who may have special needs or dietary parameters.

Somehow, our reservations for 6:00 were changed to 5:00. We were accommodated at our requested time and had an enjoyable supper. Most ordered steak, which they are noted for, while 2 of the women ordered salmon, which was also very good. Great service, outstanding wine list. All in all, a great time.

I brought my husband here for our anniversary. This was a very nice restaurant. We enjoyed ourselves. We had drinks that were great, excellent appetizers and my husband said "the best steak I've ever had." Our server was very nice. We sat in a room off to the left where the fireplace is. It's an intimate space and some of the tables near us were pretty loud, but not a big deal. Unfortunately, we were too full for dessert. It's pricey, but I felt that we got what we paid for and we would definitely go back again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our supper at Opus 9. Many thanks to our server, Luis, who was friendly and very familiar with the menu and its special qualities. I had seafood -- perfect taste and texture, and my date had filet mignon that melted in our mouths. Not a single complaint. The ambience is creative and restful. And I loved the fact that we could have a quiet conversation and hear each other without intrusive ambient noise, which is a problem in so many restaurants. We were traveling through the area and only wish we had a spot like Opus 9 closer to our home!

We celebrated our 60th Anniversary here because I wanted a steak and I'm fussy about my steaks as the best I've ever had was at the cattleman's in Oklahoma 's stockyards and saying that I have to say the steak I had was right up there with the best . The service was right on and they were very good at what they do. My first one was not what I ordered and they took it back and did another one right. Pros were service, food, and style. Cons very pricy but you pay for what you get and the price was good for the quality of food and service. I will return again as I am not a big meat eater but this place will be my to go place for steak.

Food and service once we were seated was five star. I was disappointed in that I had to ask for a coat check and there seem to be no dress code. I had a man in a flannel shirt and jeans sitting across from us. I will definitely be sure to ask for a quieter table next time. We were seated at one of the booths right inside the door and the bar crowd could be heard.

This is the “real deal” Steakhouse. Our steaks were cooked perfectly as we requested. Very tender. Probably the best housemade onion rings we have ever had anywhere. Service was very pleasant and appropriately attentive. Wonderful dining experience - heartily recommend.

Disappointing wine list. Well very well done as far as labels, there are no vintages listed. When we ordered a nice California Zinfandel, I was quite surprised to see it was a 2016... It was too early to be pouring that wine, and shame on the distributor for even offering that vintage yet. It was the only downside to an otherwise wonderful evening of perfectly cooked food.

I find the steaks over priced compared to actual renowned steak houses I've visited across the country and some the basic dishes & other over creative to point of having to return them. I continue to find it bewildering that the servers argue with me when I ask them to touch up a filet that has too much red in the center to my liking for Medium. I'm not criticizing the chef, them or the restaurant it's simply when I'm paying $50 for a steak I want it the way I want it and find the debate insulting in front of my guests, indicative of a lack of sophistication on the part of Opus, poor management and frankly misplaced arrogance. Grow up and focus on the customer and until I hear it's changed, it's our last Christmas celebration there and in general!

This is an upscale steakhouse in Williamsburg, we went for a holiday dinner. We signed up online and received two complimentary shrimp cocktails for our dinner. We also had the special Chateaubriand for two which was excellent. Overall a very nice experience and we will be returning.

It’s nice- far from exceptional. Go on a fairly regular basis and always expect the pop to happen but for the price it underperforms for the most part. Not bad- but like a steak. Longhorn does it as well

My husband and I went for the first time after hearing good things. Service was slow and inattentive- waiter indicated that he had arranged for additional salad dressing to be brought as noted dressing was light, came back about 10 minutes later to ask if we received- we hadn't- and then it was still another 5 minutes- we said we were going to order a glass of wine with dinner- never came back to get our order- meals were delivered, no wine and waiter did not come back until we were almost done to check on us. Meal was okay but not the wow factor you would expect with a $50+ entree.

Our reservation was for 6:30 and we were seated and served a beverage promptly. We ordered soup, salad and entree. The salad came out shortly after dressed, we had ordered dressing on the side. My husband's soup then arrived. We finished salad and soup by 7:15. Customers who came after us were brought their entrees...we waited. We had to flag our server for additional water and drinks while waiting. Our server kept saying our food would be right out. The maitre de came and apologized for the delay and said he would check with the kitchen. Our food finally arrived at 8:00. No explanation was given. The lobster and filet were excellent, but the wait was not acceptable.

The French onion soup was wondeeful piping hot too.
The meatloaf was a bit dry but there was lots of gravy this time. The mashed potatoes where nice but lukewarm as well as the vegetables. When our meals arrived we had to ask for bread and butter and where given one slice each and never offered more. Our waiter could have been more attractive. The restaurant was very busy but the tables around us with different waitstaff did not seem to be neglected.
