I've been visiting Opus over the years and it's somewhere I always recommend for people coming to Birmingham. It's a lovely layout that always feels just right in terms of enough space and also feeling good busy as people flow in and out. There was a good clear range of dishes on offer, with a mix of prix fixe and... More

We have been here many times and our latest visit was a small celebration for my friends retirement. Two couples on a Thursday evening. Excellent food, first class service and a chat with the chef, it was a great evening. My goats cheese mousse and cod with fennel risotto were perfect. Everyone else enjoyed their food too. I chose a... More

Some of the best food I've experienced at a more than reasonable price. Staff are friendly, no pretentiousness about the place at all. Only a matter of time before it gets starred

Great service and food at Opus. Had the prawns and lobster for starter and fish again for the main course. Because it was a Monday in January the restaurant was not crowded. Staff were friendly and attentive.

This is a favourite of mine. Been coming here years. We had oysters to start. Unbelievable. Then the signature egg starter and then the lamb which was cooked to perfection. Fantastic service and great wine. A few empty tables at 9pm on a Saturday evening but we didn't mind. Keep up the good work opus.

It was nice to come here and get dressed up. The waiters where very attentive and couldn't do more for you. The food was slightly bland for me but I just prefer a spicer menu. Would definitely recommend for a first date as it's quiet enough to talk and fancy to make a good impression

Fist visit, excellent attitude by staff, quality of staff very good, I have no negatives for this Restaurant. We had excellent meals, although menu may seem limited in choice I believe that quality is better than quantity in choice. Food was excellent, very good ambience, attention by staff excellent in timings although it did get busy mid/late evening and staff... More

Five of us dined for£340 including for bottles of wine. The food was good, secure and of great quality. Catering for someone who is gluten free for medical and not choice, was not an issue. The staff were goes,helpful and knew how to serve. Great cheese selection at the end of the meal. All the dishes we ate were very... More

Opus Restaurant, in Birmingham’s business district, is a top spot for a business lunch or a schmoozey dinner. The cavernous dining room is a dramatic open space decorated in muted hues. The team at Opus are proud of their modern British menu which showcases locally sourced free range meats and freshly caught fish. Favourites include the Lyme Bay Scallops with Belly of Pork and the Grilled Lobster served with Chips and Garlic Butter. The glamorous waiting staff are super-friendly, and the renowned in-house patisserie gives you a great excuse to have a naughty limoncello-cheesecake ending to your meal. It would be rude not to.
