My husband and I have been to Opus One several times in the last year and it has always been outstanding from start to finish. We generally go for a special occasion because it has a nice romantic ambiance inside. We like to take our time at a restaurant like this so we are usually there for 2-3 hours. We've never felt rushed to order, or had our food come out too fast. We usually order a cocktail or glass of wine and enjoy that while we peruse the menu. We've had a variety of things on the menu including the steaks (wow!), the lamb, and the seafood trio. The oysters rockefeller are amazing, and the lobster spring rolls, and the beef tenderloin rangoon apps are fantastic. They have a chocolate dessert that looks like a chocolate bag filled with ice cream and other goodness that is to die for. And if you love a great cup of coffee I highly recommend the Kona french press. I know it's $12, but if you're a true coffee junkie (I drink mine black), it's awesome.
Our service is always wonderful as I said before. We've never been rushed or pressured to order or upsold on wine. There's always plenty of time between the apps and the entrees and the dessert if we order one. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about wine and the menu and can answer any questions you have or will go and find out the answer for you.
Overall, an outstanding experience. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a nice, drawn out dining experience.
