        went to opus last sat and thought it was very good for $. not sure if its the best tasting menu but very good value. the desert we got was sub par but everything else was very interesting..we went with 6 courses.
        would definitely go back.

          I'd agree with Ricky that Opus' tasting menu isn't quite as sophisticated as what you might find in other dining rooms. That said, all of the food tastes good and the service is phenomenal. If you're looking for something more formal, Opus might not be the best place. If you're looking for something on the lighter, more playful side, Opus is your man.

          I went last month for my birthday:

        1. Love Spago and Providence (esp dessert tasting menu for 30 bucks!) yes, but also had a great experience last weekend at Bin8945 and wish I were going back sooner!

          1. Not Valentino per tonights meal, but I do concur with Bin 8945.
