As a single diner, they were very accommodating. Didn’t seat me in Siberia and were quite attentive. Excellent service and high quality food. Would return over and over.

Service was wonderful. Fish was delicious. I would suggest a vegetable with a smaller amount of orzo.

Had 7:45 reservations, and hostess said there will be a wait. When I asked how much of a wait the hostess said they are still on their entrees. So glad I made reservations, I asked her to give us a table as there were tables available. She said we don’t sit 2 at a table of 4. It’s not my problem, I made reservations. Our waiter was good. Drinks took forever to come out. Not sure if I will return as the food was ok.

Really very good food, we had the leaf salad, I had lamb and she had chicken and we shared a chocolate mousse desert. We were both very happy with the food taste and quality. The flavors of the ingredients were well matched and robust. The prices were a little steep I thought but not terrible. Service was friendly, but the entry was awkward as there was no place to stand before being seated that wasn't in the way of others trying to enter. Only other detractor was the noise level was a little high.

Opal never disappoints. This is one of my go-to favorites when I am entertaining out-of-town guests. Almost everyone wants to dine in downtown Charleston but I let them know about this Mount Pleasant gem of a restaurant and I have always received nothing but the highest compliments about Opal. I'm always very excited to take new guests to Opal as I know they will leave very satisfied and with a smile on their face.

We live in Seaside Farms so frequently eat at Opal and Basil. Opal has consistently good food however the menu does not change enough and it is over priced for what it is. Never order the special without asking how much it is. Average fish on menu is between $25 and $30 special can be $40 or higher. This is a personal issue of mine as most restaurants tell you how much the specials are when they introduce them or they are roughly in line with the rest of the menu. Dinner for two with wine and tip will be $100 more or less.

We had a nice evening. We were seated right on time, drinks were promptly served. Appetizers came in good order. There was a huge lag time for waiting for entrees. My filet was underwhelming and a little over cooked - asked for Med-Rare and it was Medium at best...a little dry. The Borolo sauce was ok. The recommended Brussels sprouts were just saturated in the balsamic glaze, didn’t care for them at all. Other’s meals, pastas and pork chop, were good. I probably had too high of expectations. But I would say its a good neighborhood restaurant to enjoy with friends. Our server was outstanding.

We have always loved Opal, and we were happy to bring some newcomers to our area to enjoy dinner. The four of us enjoyed the charcuterie board, the delicious soup of the day-butternut squash, the fish special and one of the handmade pasta dishes. The wine was perfect and our server was very pleasant and helpful. We look forward to returning to Opal!

Once again Opal never fails to deliver. Exceptional service and the way they can cook the most perfect piece of fish. One appetizer special was roasted whole baby carrots with a lovely salad on top. So fresh and different! They always present such unique and creative courses. Well done! Can't wait till next time!
