    Chef Kim took us on a journey. Skylar was very informative about the details of every glass of wine and dish that was presented to us. It was my wife’s birthday dinner and I must say she was extremely satisfied. The decor, open kitchen and overall ambiance was very comfortable. The food and wine pairings went perfectly together. Every detail was considered and produced a flawless experience. Bold and subtle flavors with great textures, were the overall lasting impressions from the story Chef provided us with his art. Truly amazing.

    Overall, the four of us had a nice time. Dinner service lasted three hours. Pacing of courses was perfect. Service was good. The food was good, but the flavors did not really pop for me. I had the wine pairing. My wife had two glasses of proseco. Tab for the two of us was about $580.

    My husband and I stayed at the Belfry House and made reservations for Opus to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Let me just start off by saying wow! You check in at the front desk and they have you wait in their cozy lobby by the fireplace until they are ready for you. This was different, it felt like you were at an old world inn or someone’s home (or at least what I would imagine it to be back in the day). We were greeted by our server and seated. Our menu was on our table when we sat down and it read “Curtis Dinner” on one line and “Happy 10 Year Anniversary” on the next line. I thought that was the sweetest thing ever and such a wonderful personal touch to add to our special occasion! Opus is very intimate, cozy, low noise, and a very personal experience. Chef Kim Buyse prepared all our courses for us. The kitchen is open so you can watch him prepare your food if you choose l which I loved because it made you feel very immersed in the dining experience. You can tell there is special detail and care that is put into everything. The staff of Belfry House and Opus are very welcoming and kind. We had the seven course tasting menu with wine pairing. The flavors and textures of each dish worked beautifully together and the wine pairing was perfect. Chef Kim’s flavors of French meets Asian pairs wonderfully together. Our server was knowledgeable and timed everything perfectly so we didn’t feel rushed or lingering between courses. Opus and the Belfry House are something special and rare. Opus was a unique and memorable experience that we will never forget. They truly made it special for our anniversary!

    This was our first time at Opus with the new chef. His cuisine was beautiful, some very creative and surprising textures. Our server was attentive and engaging. Regarding the change from 5 to 7 courses, I found 2 desserts with a dessert wine to be too much sweet food. I would prefer a cheese course and 1 dessert.

    Chef Kim Buyse delivers insanely beautiful flavors, stunning plating, and perfect execution in the seven course offering. What he is creating is special and I cannot wait to see him continue to develop his voice through his food in the months and seasons to come. This may be the blossoming of a new center of haute cuisine in the Midwest, and the potential to be Michelin-star worthy down the line. I can't wait to come back!

    A very fabulous Birthday celebration dinner! We had an early reservation so we were the only 2 in the restaurant for the first hour, nothing like having a private dinner! I was treated so special. The flowers in a small vase on the table were given to me in honor of my birthday. The meal was so special and the wines fit the various courses so well! The food was a taste sensation for the mouth. Thank you so much Chef Kim

    An incredible experience from start to finish. Chef Kim's dishes were beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. We enjoyed each of the seven courses and can't wait to plan our next visit to Opus! Service was excellent, and we even got a chance to meet the owner at the end of the evening. Overall, it's worth the price and the hype.

    Listen this isn't chicago so don't expect chicago value, quality, or quantity. The location was poorly marked. So it was hard to tell where to park. Also being a black woman the parking people were surprised that I was eating there. The location was nice once you found the entrance. But the website where I made the reservation said I could order entrees but in fact they only did a set of very small snacks. It was very overpriced. Very homie and Midwestern ingredients. If I wasn't Jewish and ate pork, maybe I'd have enjoyed it more. The price point wasn't that high, but the quality was too low. It would have been ok at $40 or $50, but at $150 I expect more.

    Very sorry to report that we should have cancelled when they called in response to my email. When asked to confirm via OpenTable, I wrote to explain I had booked for the 3 course menu (only available if you bought the show). She said (too late to cancel) AND to say no more 3 course menu. They LOST THEIR CHEF --not disclosed on the website or anywhere but neither was the no more 3 course. She said they had another similar level chef from the city on the weekends. But no substitutions! two days earlier (Husband doesn't eat fish, offered to eat another appetizer on the menu). Got there at 5 time of reservation. Door locked. No sign for the restaurant Very strange. Then found out chef was a sub for the sub from Milwaukee. Uh oh. Asparagus panna cotta --split. Disgusting green gel with shell on top. Oh, waitress told us it was her first week! Next course ok, leek tart with goat cheese. Next course for me halibut ok. For my husband lamb-(from just down the street! we didn't need to know that--which he doesn't like but he ate. (No choice for him, they decided) Next course? In the early summer? Beef roast in dark Demi glacé over rich mashed potatoes. VERY heavy. Next course: creme brûlée. I love it but I CANNOT eat it It is too rich. The whole menu was barely relieved by 3 sprigs of micro greens and a few berries. So rich we left and could not attend the concert. The whole thing was a waste of money. Worse, I feel stupid since I should have cancelled when I heard the chef was gone. I'd give it a pass. A great hamburger would be a better experience. Better yet, go to Rick Bayless' restaurant and spend $150 plus wine plus tip per person! That would be memorable. This was not.

    It was a great and memorable dining experience in celebration of my wife’s birthday. We arrived early and was seated in no time. The 5 course food is scrumptious. The staff Leslie and Skyler were very knowledgeable and attentive. Chef Philippe also greeted us at our table. The only unpleasant experience was the parking. The parking space is very limited and was advised to park across the street at a hospital parking lot.

    We were disappointed in the experience. We dine at this type of restaurant often in both the U.S. and Europe. The food was very good and beautifully plated - not outstanding. We had wine pairing which we do often and found the pour very skimpy. We do not object to paying a high price for fine dining but found this out of line.

    Wonderful dining experience! Food was fabulous and the presentation was so creative! Service was top notch and the dining room is very intimate. Only suggestion would be to go the extra step to make accommodations for gluten allergies-even if it’s not made fresh, a bread option or bread crumbs to substitute when it’s known with an advance reservation would be so appreciated. Aside from that, everything was amazing and we are grateful Chef Philippe Chevalier chooses The Belfry to showcase his culinary talents!

His wine pairings with the meal were spot on and perfect. The waitress is on point and manages your dining experience with class and is the very definition of professionalism. Will I be returning?

    This is truly a dining experience not to be missed. It was elegant, with beautiful presentation and extremely tasteful food. The attention to detail was beyond imagination. The chefs actually used tweezers to place tiny flowers on the foods for the explosion of color. They offer a 5 course meal, and you can choose between two different menu items for each course. My husband and I ordered different sides of the menu, and then shared our plates, so we could experience the entire offerings. I recommend you do the same, as each item is so amazing. From fois gras to skate (which I recall not caring for in the past), to passion fruit ice cream with banana mousse, everything was exquisite. Our server was absolutely amazing, Friendly, attentive and full of information and inquiries, without being intrusive. If you are looking for truly fine dining this is your place. Seating is limited to 22 people, and reservations are required. When we dined, there were only two other couples in restaurant. Due to unforeseen health circumstances, we had to cancel our first to reservations. At the end of the evening, I was given our flowers to take home. What a beautiful and unexpected gift. Plus, we were presented with the menu with our names on it. We haven't experienced such luxury since we dined at Tru in Chicago, several years go. Yes, I highly recommend Opus. You are in for a spectacular adventure!
