Opus Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The menu found in OpenTable is different from the menu presented. We were hoping to try the young chicken risotto and the venison. Was really disappointed in the plates we got. We got the caribou and the black peppered tuna. Both dishes were only lukewarm. The caribou sauce was too sweet. And the tuna had too much black pepper which was a waste of the fish since it was fresh. The creme brûlée was not creamy enough. The flourless chocolate cake was good but the coffee was again warm not hot.
Opus is a top notch definite go-to when you are in Toronto. The food is amazing and the wine list is phenomenal. The chef had as one of the featured appetizer choices that evening a combo of crab and radishes. It sounds a little strange but the combo of the flavors was simply a melt in your mouth experience. The main entree of tuna was just as wonderful in the preparation and taste. I finished the meal with a dessert that I cannot begin to do describe it was so awesome. It was a chocolate caramel tart with grapefruit interwoven. I had to arm wrestle my husband to keep his fork from encroaching on my dessert!
I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting as the perfect way to end a wonderful stay in one awesome city.
I chose this restaurant on a Wednesday night for our anniversary and sadly, it was a big disappointment. The place was quite busy with large groups and very noisy! They did not give us a quieter table or acknowledge our special occasion but considering the noise, we were anxious to leave.
Simple, yet Excellent: I'm very much impressed by Opus. Toronto is plagued with failed "cuisine with a modern twist", which is a delicate way of saying "cooks pathetically try to mimic great chefs like Massimo Buratta and Alex Atala by ordering the first 30 herbs they can find from a medical dictionary before throwing them all into one dish". This is not the case with Opus which stays true and narrow to the philosophy of cooking dishes that actually have flavours with simple yet top notch ingredients.
The wine cellar has a very decent collection of wine, from rare vintages of La Tâche to delightful Barolo, that even the head sommelier of Hotel Café Royal in London would not find disagreeable.
Love Opus. Have been there a few times to dine at the bar with my fiance. Saturday I booked table for four and although I booked late, they could accommodate albeit not in the main room. Next time I will be sure to clarify that we are in main room. Our room was fine, but clearly overflow or larger group room...Food is OUTSTANDING. Service is EXCEPTIONAL. Valet parking makes the whole experience lovely.
A Toronto classic that still delivers. The food was amazing and my wife's diet is challenging for most restaurants. Here it was "no problem" and the kitchen made some easy adjustments and the food came out perfect. Lucky Lime oysters were among the best we've ever had, and the scallops were literally melt in your mouth. A great wine suggestion from a true professional waiter. The room was fun with a good vibe but not so loud that you couldn't have a conversation. The service was friendly and very professional. We'll be back again soon. J
This restaurant is way overpriced. There is almost no decor other than 2 or 3 cheap looking pictures on the wall. The lights are very basic. There are no interesting decor features. The food is just ok. Nothing special. The wine menu is hugely marked up vs off licence prices.
This is my second time there and I will be back even though I don't live in Toronto. You are instantly greeted with familiarity and the service is the best part of the meal. It is above excellent. The wine list is completely extensive but don't be intimidated just ask for a recommendation for your table and the perfect bottle of wine will arrive.
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.
