Opal Restaurant & Bar
A local's favorite, opal restaurant and bar infuses an Eclectic California Cuisine with creative influences from around the World. Our chefs use the freshest of ingredients to create dishes inspired by the colorful multi-cultural heritage of America, often with an Asian flair.We have a full bar with a unique list of Specialty Martinis and a Wine Spectator award winning wine list. At opal restaurant and bar you will find not only a commitment to consistency, but also innovation. So while you will always be able to come back and find a favorite dish prepared just as well as the last time you dined here, we are also always evolving, adding new and interesting aspects to our food, beverages, decor, and style. We want the restaurant to be the kind of place we'd like to eat, elegant, sophisticated, yet comfortable and friendly with a genuinely caring hospitality. That's why our staff works as a team, in order to ensure there is always someone available to help serve you, even at the busiest of times.
Oh the noise, noise, noise, noise! I expected a nice quiet French bistro, instead it was busy, noisy place. In addition, my wild mushroom stuffed chicken was dry and tough. The herb risotto was just herbed rice. My husband had the paella and it was fine. The service was good. Overall, it was disappointing and would only recommend it for a younger crowd.
I would recommend Stella Mare's if you are looking for a very nice dinner.
PRIME LOCATION NEXT TO THE BEAUTIFUL AND HISTORIC ARLINGTON THEATER, EXTENSIVE USE OF FRESH LOCAL PRAWNS AND OTHER LOCAL TREASURES, AND DID WE MENTION THE HOUSE SYRAH GOT A 94? SUPERB WINE LIST FROM ALL OF CALI WITH AN EMPHASIS ON HARD TO FIND LOCAL PINOTS AND SYRAHS, GREAT SERVICE. CAT CORA IS RIGHT..........
The food and decor here are fantastic. We loved the food here so much we had our rehearsal dinner here. The foods tend to be on the heavy, rich side, so be prepared for a stuffing feast. The service here is excellent - very attentive, to both large and small groups. The wine list, though extensive, could have been better I thought (it's very focused on central valley). All in all an excellent experience.
