Opus continues to be one of my favourite dining destinations in Toronto!
The service from the owner and all the staff is exceptionally good. The menu and specials make it always hard to decide but you can’t go wrong with what ever you choose.
It’s no wonder Opus has stood the test of time! We were greeted immediately and the service was excellent throughout the course of our meal. The owner was actively involved and ensuring our enjoyment of our meal. Food was excellent and our server gave great recommendations. Extensive wine list. All in all a wonderful experience.
Top class food. Great service.
Was close to $100 a person with starters, mains, desert, and a drink - worth it. Good price for the value of food and service.
The services is impeccable, the waiters know the dishes and explain so well that you want to try everything on the menu. The food is fresh and delicious, pricey but worth the money and the atmosphere is pleasant, sofisticated but understated, unpretentious and just right for a casual dinner and a special occasion. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who has a discerning palate and looking for a intimate quite environment.
We had to wait a long time for our food but it was very good when it arrived.
I am generally sensitive to too much salt and next time I would ask them to lower the salt.
Quality of the food and the presentation was well done.
Waiter was great.
As always food was great but service was a bit slow
The unfortunate part of the evening was the wine experience - we ordered a bottle that we drink frequently - from the cork that was in bad shape to the nose and first taste the wine seemed materially off- sommelier insisted it was “perfect- which it absolutely was not- rather than make a fuss we slogged through the poor bottle and moved on to other wines for the rest of the evening
That was a mistake on our part. We should have been more adamant, and while I know every restaurant hates to right off a failed bottle of wine, better that than writing off a customer relationship.
Great food and nice environment. Courteous staff.
We both ordered the wild boar special. It was excellent (medium rare). We got there early, just before 6 on a Sunday. We we're initially the only customers, and by the time we left there were two other tables. This allowed them to be very attentive and responsive.
A bit noisy in that house like environment, but food was good, especially Foie Gras
Positive points: Service was great. Wine list is perfect. Menu is limited but good choices.
Restaurant is relatively small and due to that you can hear people talking. I suggest an ambience music in the background.
We had supper at Opus to celebrate our engagement. The service was excellent. The wine list was extensive; we had champagne to celebrate.
I had the cod, from Fogo Island as the menu says. This was the only disappointing part of the meal; as a Newfoundlander, I need to stop ordering cod in Ontario. It was overcooked. The accompaniments were excellent though. My fiance's steak was good. Dessert was excellent.
Of note, we were by far the youngest in the restaurant, and we're not that young.
Thank you Mario!!!
Not my first visit; food and wine quality, presentation, flavour, excellent. After main course served, wait staff went AWOL. No one available for extended period for desert and after dinner beverages, and the inebriated diner from the birthday table banging into my wife from behind sitting in her chair was not acknowledged by staff. We asked for the bill when someone finally showed up, and left.
I booked a table at OPUS for my husband's birthday. I was looking for a fine dining in a cosy place.
When we entered the restaurant it was very noisy, no intimacy.
I was hoping for a tasting menu but there were only A La Carte Menu. However the choice was great.
The food is good even if very fatty / oily and served in small portions.
Wines and waiters / service were OK.
In overall it was not a bad experience but it is really overpriced for what you get.
Outstanding food. Creative menu. Great wine list. Just a spectacular meal.
Everything was great, but what stood out was the service: professional and attentive. We asked for a quiet table and received an excellent one in an area off the main room. We chose two unfamiliar wines from the lower price range of the extensive list, and considered both of them standouts. A real pleasure!
Inexplicably after an excellent appetizer course, the main course did not appear for a long, long time...clearly the waiter was aware because when he finally came out of hiding, he was full of reasons for the poisonous delay—- when the entrees came, the food on the plates were warm, but the dishes were scalding hot to the touch—I don’t know what that means in terms of preparation, but something sat somewhere for a good while....the taste was excellent, and I can vouch for the glowing accolades...and that is why our experience was so surprising and disappointing
Still the best restaurant in Canada, IMHO. Fantasic foie gras (could have that for appetizer + main + dessert anytime!). Service is perfect and quiet. Plus kitchen open late and bar till 2AM!
The food was outstanding. The only thing that ruined our evening is the loud noise in the restaurant. We couldn't talk, we had to shout...
Excellent we got there when they just opened so it was nice and quiet beautiful presentation.
We had not been to Opus for a few years. Recommended it highly for a special occasion. Non of the food was exceptional. Main dishes were over salted. Creme brulee had a 'grainy' texture. We will not be back
Fabulous seared foie gras, perfectly crusted fish with innovative accompaniment and a lovely Chablis.
44th wedding anniversary
Took friends from Brazil to one of our favourite restaurants in Toronto. Didn’t disappoint. In fact that is an understatement. This place is great, as always!
very good food and friendly with extremely competent service.
I have eaten at Opus for over 15 years, several times a year, highly recommended, stunning place
Toda una experiencia
A very good meal with tremendous service. It’s not an inexpensive place, but I have no complaints - it was a special meal to celebrate my parents’ 49th anniversary, and I certainly feel we got “value for the money”. A great experience in every respect.
We love this place for fine dining. It’s nice, quiet, hospitable, does a great job with Martinis and the food is always excellent. We try to eat here once a month. Certainly remains as o e of our top 3 in Toronto. Foie Gras and Lamb are recommended.
Opus is still at the top of its game and after all these years, its kitchen continues to deliver first rate food. Even though the restaurant was full, it was easy to converse with table mates and tables are far enough apart that you don't hear conversations from those next to you. Opus continues to be one of my favourite special occasion restaurants in the city.
Our server Tony was great and humorous!! The food was excellent, too!
The noise level made conversation difficult. The food was nothing special especially considering the price. Extremely small portions. Same goes for wine by the glass. The wait staff was friendly but it was difficult to get their attention. At one point they did come to our table to apologize for the lengthy time it took for our meals to arrive. Definitely not a place to go for date night. I will never return, nor recommend.
Tony, the owner and host was attentive, deeply knowledgeable about the wine and beautifully orchestrated the meal we enjoyed from 7pm to 11pm. Opus is an extraordinary gem.
we had wine by the glass. ridiculously expensive for an Australian moderately priced wine in the LCBO
The foie gras was exquisite as was the carpaccio
The halibut and cod were delicious
The wine list is a great read
We have visited twice in the past week and look forward to returning when we get back from Ireland
There’s a reason they’ve been in business for 26 years
Was in Toronto for 1 evening and selected Opus for their menu and proximity to our hotel. The food and service were both excellent. Highly recommend Opus.
Always has been and continues to be one of our Toronto favourites. They don’t disappoint here. Best Foie Gras and best Rack of lamb in the city so we find it hard to try other dishes but we did and it was all excellent!
Best spot in Toronto.
The striploin was one of the best I've ever had, plus the service was outstanding!
