Opus Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

The food is always excellent.
The noise level was through the roof. We could hardly hear our waiter announcing the specials, and even having a conversation between two people at our table was difficult.
It was busier than I have seen it before, which is great for their business, but lessened the initmate ambiance of previous vists.
While food quality was good, presentatio ...
While food quality was good, presentation and flavor were rather bland, portions were tiny and overpriced. Lettuce with 2 veggie chips for $16, Rack of lamb for $45 was 3 small ribs of lamb that would be more suited as an appetizer. Service was competent, however, my empty tap water glass was ignored while the manager and servers made a few rounds to fill the bottled water glasses and wine glasses of other patrons. Overall, nothing really stood out beyond the impressive wine list

The restaurant is super cute and nice, intimate setting but the service is just bad. It shouldn't be an empty night with more wait staff than people eating and I'm waiting ridiculous amounts of time for service. The food was ok, selection is small which would be ok if the food was good. Found a a few fish scales in my food, was not happy to find that in my mouth.

Beautiful restaurant! The owner was very personable and very attentive to our needs. The waitstaff was delightful and well informed of the menu. When we were leaving, the owner told us to wait inside for our Uber, as it was cold! Very thoughtful! The food was fabulous and the atmosphere was perfect. Will most definitely return next time we're in Toronto!

Unfortunately the room was very noisy because of a large table had 3 extremely loud women. They raised the decibel level such that the surrounding tables raise their voices as well. Otherwise it was an excellent experience.

A charming, romantic dining experience located in a residential area off Avenue Rd. The best venison that we ever ate and a world-class wine list. Excellent, attentive service. Great for a date or special occasion!

I had requested for a dessert with a candle to mark my boyfriend's birthday. I did not provide them with his name though I did mention it was my boyfriend. So they did an elaborate little dessert that had "HAPPY BIRTHDAY XXX" written; where XXX was my last name, my dads name. (Took a point off). Wish they did pay more attention to detail.
Apart from that the food, ambience and the wine list was amazing.

Service was good and the atmosphere might have been romantic. However, there was a frightful table near us; so loud as to all but kill our conversation. They must have been good regular customers (unlike us) because no attempt was made to rein them in. I hope none of them had to drive a car.
The portion sizes were tiny. One does not expect large portions with fine dining. However, with entrees starting at $41, there should be some measure of satisfied organic need when one leaves the table. (To be sure, the other extreme is worse if you are of the "waste not" persuasion.) Nonetheless, a snack at home was decidedly in order; unusual after one of our anniversary dinners.

Good menu choices and an excellent wine list. Dishes were done perfectly. The seating is comfortable and the clientele is the established Annex crowd. Nice spot for a special occasion or a relaxed meal. Service was very good. My only complaint is the serving sizes are small but I also have to say the taste was exceptionally good. Very satisfied.

Arguably Toronto's best restaurant. Truly a labor of love for the owners, whose staff are equally passionate about what they do. The food is complex, but everything works. The incredible and well-priced wine list is the best in Ontario, perhaps all of Canada. The whole experience is not inexpensive but, for once, you get what you pay for.

There was hair in the foie gras. Our Waiter apologized, dealt with it courteously & professionally and had the kitchen prepare a new portion.
The manager (owner?) however, was so poorly behaved that I will never return and never recommend Opus.
He approached our table and advised that everyone in the kitchen had buzz cuts and that looking around the restaurant, he could see no one with long hair. And that he therefore did not think it came from the kitchen and could not explain its origin. It was abrupt, accusatory in tone and unprofessional. It turned an unfortunate situation (originally addressed by the waiter in a delicate manner) into a horrible dining experience. Unacceptable.

I've only lived in Toronto for a year, Opus is our favourite restaurant so far and we've tried many including the more notables that everyone recommends. Opus never disappoints, from beginning to end and in all aspects.

Enjoyed the food it was great
But the lamb could have been a little tastier not much flavour and didn't like the combination that was presented. My wife's duck was a bit dry but the foie gras was amazing from the apps menu
The service was great and the ambiance was really nice, the noice level was loud couldn't really enjoy an romantic dinner with my wife as it was a 5 year anniversary, there were people at the bar making way to much noise, other than it was ok

Amazing wine selection and very good service. The food presentation is lovely as well. We found the food to be very good but definitely overpriced for what you get. The server recommended the strip loin as one of the best steaks in the city and I would say that was a huge disappointment. The quality of the meat was definitely not even NEAR the best in the city. The tuna was excellent though as well as the burrata salad. Ambiance was ok...we sat by a back door so that wasn't very nice. The only GREAT table in the house is overlooking the front window. I would say, save your $$ and go to a newer, more contemporary restaurant. You'll get better food for a better value.
Still the best restaurant in Toronto
The foie gras (maple berry glaze) is worth the trip alone. Some day I'll actually go have it for appetizer, main and dessert. No seriously, it's that good. The most professional service I have had, including Michelin starred restaurants in France. Go.
Hard Work and Professionalism Pays Off
It is great to see how through their hard work, professionalism, the continuous provision of excellent food, wines, services and their personal touch, brothers Tony and Mario established and keep maintaining one of the foremost restaurants in Canada.
Great place to celebrate
We had a great experience at Opus. You know going in that you will likely be playing a high end price for your experience here, but the food, wine and service justify that price. The wine list is massive, which can be intimidating, making it really important to have a good expert on hand. Opus' resident wine expert led us to a fantastic bottle of wine which we enjoyed to the last drop. The service overall was lovely. We'll be back.
