Highly recommend! Fabulous food, great wine and cocktail list, warm atmosphere and impeccable service! Everything was exceptional, but our entrees, the bone-in pork chop and the mahimahi special, were two of the best meals we have had in a long time!

Really just a fabulous restaurant in every category.....Our Server was Peggy and offered attentive service without being too smothering....... Interesting menu with many choices and extensive Charcuterie items. The Salad course was delicious. I had the Agnolotti hand-crafted pasta......absolutely wonderful......My husband raved about the Fish Special. We will definitely return to this very special dining spot......It will now be among our Top Five favorites!!

Perfect as always. I don’t care what anyone says, Opal is the BEST restaurant in Charleston (and it’s in Mount Pleasant!) Kristin our server was WONDERFUL! We had course after course of flavorful, beautifully presented food. Opal never misses the mark. I’m from NYC and I can say with complete confidence that Opal is one of the best restaurants I have ever dined at. Without sounding like a snoot, I’ve dined all over the world. Opal is a gem! No pun intended.

Cannot believe how good this was! It was our last night on IOP and we had run out of recommendations so we resorted to the internet and we found Opal. How lucky were we?!? All four of us had incredible dinners.

Looking for someplace new away from the hassle of downtown Chs. ,parking traffic etc. Found Opal on line and gave it a try. Other than traffic problems between N. chs. and Mt. Pleasant, so what's new, a 5 star experience. Food and service excellent ! I recommend the duck breast, done to perfection.

Wonderful, as usual. Lovely restaurant, great service, food, and wine. What more could we want? By the way - don't hesitate to order the mussels with the sausage. Sounds weird, but tastes delicious.

Had a splendid dinner at Opal on a recent Saturday evening. We were seated quickly and our server was good. A bit rushy..."I see you have drinks, here are our specials"...I like a minute to settle in. Nice selection of specials. Our group enjoyed the romaine and arugla salad very much and the special appetizer "a deconstructed bruschetta" was amazing. Dinner was mushroom pasta (a bit greasy but tasty) and wonderful fish and gnocci. I like how they incorporated local foods and keep things seasonal. All told a very good meal. Nice wine list as well. Definitely will return.

This is a great place. Would be 5/5 stars except the bartenders ALWAYS have a horrible attitude and are slow and like to make you wait. Very snooty and slow down when they know you are waiting instead of speeding up. Last Friday the bar was packed but the one bartender was hugging and joking around with the wait staff.

We pulled out all the stops and had charcuterie, oysters, apps and entrees all of which were excellent. Our server Christy was a total pro and recommended two great desserts (pot de creme and a great chocolate hazelnut cake) for the table of five. Accessible wine list. Highly recommended; will definitely go back!

Opal is one of the best restaurants in the Charleston area, let alone Mount Pleasant. The service, food, ambience, and selections are great. The steaks are perfectly cooked. The Charcuterie boards are amazing - go on a Tuesday night for 1/2 price Charcuterie's ! Great wine selection. We find it to be reasonably priced compared to anything downtown where you'd get a lesser-quality meal. Their sister restaurant Langdons is also very good. Highly recommended!

We brought friends from out of town and the whole experience was fantastic. Two folks had duck which was excellent. One had the salmon dish which was also excellent. One had the pasta/mussels special which was a big hit. Two had the handmade pastas which was delicious. The soup of the day was a shellfish bisque with shrimp that was elegant and incredibly tasty. We love Opal and enjoy the Tuesday charcuterie nights so much. I recommend this lovely restaurant and recommend reservations on the weekends for sure.

As usual, our visit to Opal was an excellent experience and they seemed to be busier than usual (a good sign for our neighborhood). Their appetizer shrimp bruschetta is fantastic. A half-serving of meatballs and pasta was plenty in size and delightful in taste/seasoning. The service was great and the wine list is diverse (and generally affordable). It was a great evening.
