Overall it’s a good place for the area. We sat outside near the water which was a nice, protected area. The chef and owner checked on us. Service was lacking. We waited 17 minutes before finally flagging down a nearby waitress and there were only 3 tables seated on the entire patio, Food was good for the price but unless service gets addressed I don’t think we will return

I have actually recommended 02 to 3 people. Everyone went. They all loved it. I had a great experience for my son’s 13th birthday. I’ve been a few times before. They made it extra special. My only in house issue is that they chill the red wine too much. I’m really not a fan of itchilled at all. It takes away from the natural flavor. Also, we ordered to go food for my daughter that could not be there and we got shrimp and grits instead of the shrimp and scallop pasta that we ordered. She was pretty disappointed as she doesn’t really care for grits. Other than that, the food was delicious, plentiful and our server was really great for the most part.

There was a party of about 16, plus the other tables and only 2 servers. The servers were very attentive and did the best they could do being overwhelmed with patrons. This place was very good in the past but something has changed in the kitchen. The steak was over cooked, the scallops were undercooked. The vegetables had no flavor. Won’t be back

Great place for a date. Nice atmosphere and not over priced. Food is great. Only nit is that they chill their red wines. But no big deal after 10 minutes.

If you have a boat, they have piers and little to no wave action.

Recommended!

We went there for lunch on Father's Day. The menu consisted of French toast, chicken breast, hamburgers, and steak and eggs. The scrambled eggs were runny and the French toast wasn't cooked all the way through. For 3 people, the bill was $60. I wanted to take my father to a nice, classy place. Unfortunately, this wasn't it. We were very disappointed.

This is not the place you want to go to for a romantic dinner. It is so loud and all of the table were not even full. That being said, the food and the service were excellent , and the prices were very reasonable.

This was my first time and I was not impressed I wanted to have a nice dinner with my boyfriend and I made the reservation that they want you to on the website. When we showed up they put us on the patio outside while it’s hot and the sun in my face.... no point for a dinner reservation.....!!! Then we couldn’t talk because it was too loud and the waiter didn’t know how to speak up or to serve on us. It took half an hour to flag our waiter to order our food and another half hour to receive it. Needless to say the food was not worth the wait everything needed salt and had no flavor. I was very dissatisfied with the service and the food!!!

My wife’s filet did not appear to be prime cut. I had the pork chop and it was a little over cooked. The partition between the bar and the dining area appears to make the dining area loud. This our third visit since it opened and I was hoping the food quality would get better.

We started with a dozen oysters on the half shell which were plump and tasty from the Gulf. Their house salad is fantastic and fresh with spinach and arugula, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese and crunchy baked thin noodles on top. The filet was cooked perfectly and full of flavor. The crawfish pasta was also delicious and well prepared. The meal was finished off with the creme brûlée with fresh berries. The service was excellent as the staff works as a team to keep the tables cleared of unneeded dishes, ensuring drinks are topped off and ensuring the customers have what they need. We would definitely return here if in the area again.

My husband and I had dinner at O2 Bistro on Saturday, March 16th. This is the first time we had been there since the new owners reopened as O2Bistro. The food was excellent. I had the sea bass and my husband had the redfish. We went early so the noise level was at a minimum. There was some activity in the bar but we could not hear them, nor could we hear the other diners.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I hope to return soon!

It comes off like what it used to be. Opus Bistro. But it’s not. It was ok. Friendly staff and so forth. Appetizer was oyster Rockefeller. It was warm and to much cream. I like them ,and usually come prepared, piping hot. These weren’t. I ordered an NewYork strip for entree and got a sirloin. It was good, but not what I ordered. All and all it was ok. Nothing to write home about. I’ll probably give them another shot.

This was our second visit. The first was pleasant, without any complaints, but the second one was even better. The waitress was excellent, as was the food. It was a bit pricey for what we got, but I also think the higher pricing was reflected by the higher level of service.

We'll certainly return again.

We sat on the patio & were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The ambiance was good however 2 tables had people smoking. We asked & was told smoking was not allowed & one table put theirs out but one did not. Waitress was great & very friendly. My seafood was good but my husband had a steak & said it was not worth $30
