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.

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.

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!

Given requested seating for a quiet table .

Food prep and service were outstanding. My guest chose venison and it was prepared to perfection . Our server was very accommodating , ensuring that our choices could be prepared without garlic or nuts, as requested.
A superb and memorable dining experience!

It had mixed reviews so I was bit hesitant first but all my friends who have pretty picky taste liked the food especially different steaks they offer. Their white chocolate mouse was really good too. The service was very good actually and I really don't think the food was overpriced at all. It was just about right.

Opus is an unforgettable world class experience. The legendary wine list offers by the glass choices - some of which come from the owners own European vineyard. The food is extraordinary in flavor, texture, creativity, and beauty of presentation, while the service is flawless. There is a reason for the longevity of this jewel, I beleive, and it is that this team knows its business. If you are a foodie, this is THE restaurant in Toronto, not to be missed. A quarter of a century later it remains my first choice when I visit Toronto for a special occasion, to take out of province or country guests, and/or to have a luxurious day at the ROM followed by the rare treasures found on the menu.

One of the best kept hidden secrets in the Yorkville area, kind of border of downtown. By far one of the best restaurant recommendations for special occasions or senior business meetings. The chef and the maitre'ds know what they're doing. Great ambience in the evening, spectacular wine and food selection.

Technique on food was excellent as was the food. Too bad no one cared about customer service. Food came 1.5 hours after ordering. Someone on the table was diabetic and they needed their meal at a certain time. No one cared. With so many places with great food in Toronto, no need to ever go back here.

Likely appeals more to a somewhat older crowd with conservative tastes. A solid but not very imaginative menu. Ambiance feels a bit dated. Attentive service.

Pros: Amazing wine list, really fine food, convenient valet service.
Cons: Music was too loud even after we asked the waiter to lower it a bit. Our table was not balanced when we arrived and it had to be fixed by the staff.

The food is excellent every time, the service is outstanding, the owners Tony and Mario are very friendly and knowledgeable, the daily specials allow me to visit a few times each month, the wine list is EXTRAORDINARY, there oysters ALWAYS so fresh and tasty, not to mention their fish, meats and their addictive blueberry mini donuts for dessert. It is my go-to place often on Friday evenings after a busy week.
