Fabulous as always for both food and service. I am addicted to their shellfish bisque which is fabulous. Love that you can order half portions of pasta which is still substantial. Always a great experience!

My wife and I had pork chops and a steak/filet and they melted in our mouth and were super tender. I had a dozen raw oysters/large selects from massatucetts, nice and salty. Over all the meal was excellent, but very pricy. With appetizer, meals, desert and a glass of wine the bill was $180...

Ended up at Happy Hour and the value for wine/drinks/menu options was amazing. Highly recommend this place for a casual pre-event or just sitting down & having a wonderful dinner.

Fantastic! The food was absolutely delicious! Nicole was a lifesaver when we needed to change our reservation time-(Thank you!) Brittany and her team took great care of us. My daughter's vegetarian request was accommodated beautifully and every single member of our party loved their meal. Definitely look forward to our next visit!

A terrific meal.....I can see why everyone loves this restaurant. We will be back and we will recommend this. Waitress was also wonderful: I think her name was Christine (? ) . ....we hope to see her also at Langdons - your sister restaurant. Thanks for a great dinner.

Excellent as usual. One of my favorite restaurants in the Charleston area and we have eaten at almost every high end or moderatly priced restaurant here! I have dreams of their shellish bisque and would be happy eating it every day! Love the ability to order half portions of many of their menu items. Great service, and quiet enough so you do not have to shout at your dining companion which is a rarity nowdays! Highly recommend. Always a pleasure to eat here!

The most interesting thing that Opal does is the creative way it uses confits. I had the duck confit served in a spicy pancetta and pepper tomato sauce where the confit substituted for the meat selection in an arrabiata. Served over pappardelle, it was a hearty and substantial dish perfect for a chilly night.

Opal never fails to impress. You can’t go wrong with anything on the small but well rounded menu. The pastas are amazing but don’t overlook the specials. My husband had the pork rib chop and it was outstanding! My father and I shared a bowl of mussels (delicious!) then the half rack of lamb. It was cooked to perfection and served alongside crispy fingerling potatoes with a carmelized onion red wine reduction. Opal also offers a gluten free pasta option so our son is able to eat with us! The chocolate marcona almond cake with coconut ginger ice cream and marshmallow cream sauce is divine. This is a consistent favorite for us and that’s saying a lot in a town full of excellent options!

The appetizer and entree menu items were all creative and exceptionally well presented. The service was also exemplary and made for a wonderful evening. Table spacing allowed for quiet conversation. Very nice wine selection that matched the menu nicely.

Excellent as always! The best soups. I loved the one I had! Also ordered pastas, both the daily special and the one with bolognese sauce. The al dente pasta made in house is divine.

we have been there now 4 times. With that in mind, I can say it is one of the best restaurants in the area . We live here locally and are a good judge of restaurants. It is first of all a pace that tie can have a conversation without talking loud, the food is extremely good, the service is first class, and for me the fact they offer the right wine glasses for what you are drinking was the icing on the cake.

Perfect restaurant to celebrate 2 birthdays of 2 good friends. Our husbands treated us to dinner at Opal for our October birthdays. Because of the great hostess, awesome server, and helpers we were able to relax and enjoy our time together as well as delicious food. Loved the shrimp bruschetta. And the Monday 1/2 price wine night!
