We had a fillet Mignon and a Rib-eye, both steaks were cooked to perfection. The portions are generous but not obscene, service is professional without being syrupy, they're nailing it.

We we’re also seated very quickly and they made sure we were warm on a cool evening. My girlfriend and I enjoyed a salad, the crab cake, and the prosciutto pizza. We will definitely be returning for some of the more established entrées.

I easily made an early reservation, On-Line, for myself and my sweetheart, who's Birthday it was and who doesn't like crowds. The food was so good, and the service was great too, and so appreciated. I had whispered to the Server that it was a B-Day - and the Sweetheart didn't want a desert, but I ordered a Tiramisu, and it came w/ a b-day candle lit, and the Plate decorated - it was perfect, and although he had chocolate cake at home, we both enjoyed the Tiramisu very much - All in all, it was the perfect Sunday dinner choice.

Our favorite place to sit is one of the three window tables. Opal’s wine menu is extensive and their food pairings are spot on. Our favorite appetizer is the jumbo phyllo prawns. Every time we visit Santa Barbara, we definitely go to Opal.

The service was excellent and the ambience is very nice. It’s a lively atmosphere, but the noise level was perfect to enjoy our dinner and conversation. I highly recommend!

The Pasilla steak was the group favorite. Our server was a bit odd, kinda a fake friendly. We overheard another server, ex-olympian, and she was enjoying her customers. She seemed to enjoy her job and was not just going through the motions. We also asked for a wine recommendation. The man who came to help was not very friendly either. My husband is a wine maker and is familiar with wine and so it is not appreciated when there is no passion when the wine person is suggesting wines.
