The ardently attentive wait person who charmingly introduced the menu to us a few evenings ago was professional and friendly without being intrusive catering to the slightest detail. The same held for our server at lunch. So it was definitely a thumbs up on service on our two recent stops there.
The small plates. which can serve if combined as either mini-meals in the formal dining room or at the bar or or as first courses would be a reason to return again and again... especially since I can't afford the expense of a full dining experience as frequently as I would like to be at Opus. In fact, the Opus Burger will for certain lure me back to the bar again and again... it is without doubt if not the best one of the best in town at a great value (especially at happy hour at the bar). At lunch Opus also serves the Burger on a pretzel roll which delighted my luncheon friend at a recent visit. The variety of salads also please... I tried and liked the cold shrimp in an arrangement of potatoe salad, avocado and mixed greens.
We were right Punta Gorda to be pleased when Opus moved in to town and should be glad every time it opens its doors to us.
