You got to try this once in your life. Scary at first since we are all used to the light but once you enter to the pitch black room all kind of emotion came to me and oh boy that is quite something. I order the suprise entree and meal and that added more fun to the whole experience. I got so much respect for the staff, they are amazing. Kuddos to the owner for creating this concept and to show my support I left a huge tip for all what they have done for the visually impaired community I recommend this to anyone who wants to try a restaurant out of the ordinary. I rarely give 5 stars but this one has earn it. More

We chose Le Petit Opus from a long list of choices of restaurants participating in the "Table" fest. It had the strengths of an imaginative 'prix fixe' menu and was geographically well located for us. It would probably not have surfaced otherwise. The quality of the food was uniformly high and the service was excellent. We were impressed and will now add it to an impressively long list of first-class dining options when we come (alas, not as ofter as we like) to this great city. More

I love the intimate cafe. I was told by the owner that the open table reservations were only for the reserved rooms. That is too bad for me. Since there are few tables for the public cafe area. I would have definitely used it only for the cafe. I am not sure if I would go for a reserved room via opentable when they change it over unfortunately. It wouldn't be for me. The collection of teas and lattes are delicious! Highly recommended! More
