We were truly pleased by the food, the service, and the attention paid to little details with a sense of genuine affability.

A varied and unusual menu, with some exciting specials (including wild boar and venison tenderloin). Un believable wine list. The service was attentive, knowledgeable and very professional. We had an awesome Valentine's dinner. Thank you Opus.

I think we had confusion in that I believe I made a reservation for San Farancisco and I ate on the island of Aruba.

We had a great experience at Opus. The staff were attentive and friendly from the moment we stepped through the door. We had a 6:30 booking on a Saturday evening and although as expected at that time there weren't too many diners, it soon became pretty busy.
The wine list is staggering. Our server told us that Opus has the largest selection of wine of any restaurant in Canada with approximately 55,000 bottles and 2,800 different types/vintages.
The bread that was served was very fresh. The appetizers were very good as were the mains. I didn't feel the need to order any sides as the portion size was perfect for me.
The ambience was relaxing and they made nice use of the lighting which was dimmed.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a higher end restaurant for a special occasion or for entertaining a business client as it is situated in a central location in Toronto. It is also very near to St.George subway station on Line 2 which is only 2 stops west of Yonge Bloor.

Once upon a time Opus was our go-to romantic restaurant while visiting Toronto. Unfortunately they have elected to arrange too many tables in their small dining room and with that the noise level is uncomfortable. The lack of privacy for a nice dining occasion is lost.
Farewell.

This was a disappointment. The vegetarian pasta was underwhelming and was the only option, despite having been assured to the contrary in a prior phone call. Quite noisy due to an adjacent large group of business types. Its a small but pretty room. Service was good. The advertised valet parking was non existant.

The Opus dining experience, top to bottom, was incredible. For foodies, Opus should be at the top of your short list. For wine lovers, Opus should be at the top of your short list. For those who enjoy a beautiful evening out, one that feels both eventful and intimate, Opus should definitely be at the top of your short list. Enjoy-

We got our table 25 minutes past our reservation time, and no compensation offered. The noise level was unbearable. The food was good, but not fantastic and over priced. The service by the waiters was very good.

I've been coming to Opus for almost thirty (30) years. Mario greets you and acts like you're a long lost brother...extremely nice. The entire experience is always wonderful for all guests I've brought. It makes me feel wonderful that I've recommended the restaurant to so many people for so many years! Best of everything for the restaurant to carry on for another thirty(30) years or more. I visited first from the Syracuse, Rochester, NY area and I currently live in West Bloomfield, MI. USA. since January, 1997.

The stars speak for themselves! Absolutely wonderful. The wine list is large, however they will help you find just the right wine for your meal in your preferred price range. Then sit back and enjoy.

It is a lovely elegant restaurant with a menu replete with great food choices and a wine list which is beyond me. Happily, they are very helpful with respect to wine choices, no up selling, all delicious.

I eat here a lot and generally consider Opus the best restaurant in town, so must’ve caught them on an off-night. The rabbit appetizer that was great in the past was bland and under-seasoned. The Fogo-island cod was wet and sloppy, also lacking flavour and spice; very disappointing. Seared foie gras and maple apples was delicious. Service seemed rushed and distracted, as much attention from staff and management was being heaped on a nearby table with VIPs. Restaurant was noisier than I’ve ever witnessed for some reason, partly due to the patron who took it upon himself to stand up and sing a song. Not kidding. Weird off-night for a traditionally excellent place.

Dined here a few times, always enjoy the food, service and ambiance. This last time, I had the pleasure of trying the Elk ribeye...probably the best game I have ever eaten anywhere in the world...and I love most game dishes.
Wine list is a virtual phonebook, and there are some doozies on it for sure! Still, I was able to find a number of good values within the Australian and bordeau listings...so don’t be intimidated...jump right in and I am sure you will find something you like that agrees with your budget.
Highly enjoyable evening!

Simply one of the finest restaurants Toronto has to offer, year after year after year. Had yet another great meal. On this night we had the rabbit appetizer, bison steak special, and Fogo Island cod. All were excellent, with the rabbit appetizer a real winner. Never skip dessert at Opus, as it’s always ridiculously good. They make the ice cream in-house so always get that in addition to whatever other dessert you order. Even the bread here, also made in-house, is awesome. Thumbs way up. It is expensive so be forewarned.
