Opus, Opus, get it together!. Used to love this restaurant but have seen it go down hill more and more each time I visit. Service especially. Just called (as instructed by my certificate) and apparently was a nuisance to the host. His flippant attitude wasn't appreciated. With so many options in Denver, I don't see myself making the effort to go all the way to Littleton to be treated like a burden. Sorry Opus, I will be spending my time and money elsewhere.
Worst Restaurant in Colorado. Basically they charged my credit card double for a meal and would not reimburse me for the money they stole. The food wasn't that great, but I was disgusted on how Micheal Griffin hung up on me and refused to help a customer who PAID TWICE for one meal. I would never eat there again and I am completely disgusted with their level of nonprofessional business practices'. Opus is a poor example of fine dining. They should be boycotted.
Service Improvements, Restaurant Week. Things have improved here since our first and only meal at Opus several years ago when we moved to Denver. We ordered one of two Restaurant Week options. I must first say that service and organization this time was crisp, quick and pleasant. The dishes were properly prepared, a minimum requirement for me. The now-common mesclun salad, was small and simple, but with subtle flavor additions and served at room temp., not cold. Nice enough. Next came shredded bison over mashed potatoes, with pleasant though unremarkable flavor. Last , dessert, was a smattering of preserved fruit in a hard pastry crust. My companion had a panna cotta, another dish one finds everywhere now. It wa ssmall, but better made than most. So, 3 points for one area of improvement and basic, correct prep., but no more because of the unimaginative RW offerings and Opus ' insistence on adding a higher-priced "premium" version RW option on the facing menu page. Sort of a backhanded insult really, suggesting that, if they must, they'll do a "low-priced" RW menu for the riff-raff, but they'll also offer a "better" menu for those with taste. As Denver grows and more restaurants come in to offer quality cuisine at competitive prices, maybe Opus pricing will evolve past this pricing obsession that has played a part in alienating customers.
Terrible Service. Planned a nice Christmas Ladies Lunch at Opus. Had a reservation and arrived on time. Finally greated by a busy waiter who addressed us by the wrong name. After we were seated,no one came to take a beverage order. After waiting 15 minutes,I got up and looked for a waiter. When I approached the waiter, he said "what do you want,hon?" I asked for service and finally got a wine list and a smart remark from said waiter when I asked about gluten free items. We ladies waited 30 minutes and still no one came to take our beverage order,let alone our lunch ortder. We left and went somewhere else. For a reportly fine restaurant,the service was extremely sloppy and slow. Will not ever go back to such a poorly managed establishment.
Good Food, Poor Service.
Went here for dinner for my birthday a few weeks ago. We had reservations and showed up several minutes early.
We were seated quickly, however it took around 10 minutes before we saw a waiter.
We ordered an appetizer which took almost 20 minutes to arrive, we know this because the waiter comped us another glass of wine and said he had timed how long it was taking. Sounds like this may be a common problem. At least the guy was kind enough to recognize the wait and do something about it.
The food, once we got it, was very good, no complaints there.
The resteraunt is an open room with hard floors and hard walls. I'm pretty sensitive to loud atmospheres, short of being at the local pub, so at first I thought it was just me. That was until my fiancee noticed that it was really loud also. Could have just been a spirited crowd, but either way I left with a headache.
Disappointing and possibly in violation of codes. I was absolutely grossed out when I was walking toward the restrooms in the back of the restaurant. I had occasion to note that the chef who was preparing the food wiped his face and ran his hand through his hair and then was handling the food!! I returned to my table and told my dinner partner that I wanted to leave. He was determined to stay. I refused to order any food. I wouldn't go back there if they were giving the food away!! I have only given this review a star because Citysearch requires that I give it a rating. It does not even deserve one star. If you value your health, stay away from this place.
Worst service I've encountered to date in Denver.
My wife and I were excited to try out this restaurant in our own neighborhood and was severely agitated with the poor service. We were treated so poorly and left before the waitress even got to the table.
We arrived 5 minutes early and was sat in the worst table in the restaurant next to the waiters station and since there were plenty of other unoccupied 2-person settings, we requested another table. The hostess planted us at the table anyhow, stepped away a few feet, turned around and told us she couldn't move us since they were extremely busy... which was far from the course at 4:30 in the afternoon. I was so insulted as to walk away from the restaurant to go next door to pub which had excellent manners!
bad taste in my mouth.
I have dined at opus before for our anniversary and it was a good experience that's why we came back. This time, however, is a very opposite experience. The service was awful. We made a reservation but when we came in, they didn't even ask for our name and had us wait for 30 mins. I have noticed that they have seated other people who came in later than us (maybe they are regulars). Then when they finally seated us we waited 15 minutes just to get our menu. We rarely saw the waiter.. it was as if they were serving everyone else but us. We love fine dining and we are used to having 2-3 waiters serving us at a time. At the prices we're paying, we should expect a good service!
After eating our first appetizer course, we waited for at least 30 mins before we called the waiter and asked them what was the hold up... Apparently the kitchen lost our ticket and have not even started cooking our order yet!!!! The food in this restaurant that day was ok (the fois gras was not to my standards) but needless to say, the whole experience had left such a bad taste in my mouth that we will never go back there again.
fine dining always at Opus in Littleton. I have dined at Opus quite often, with out of town guests and with local friends....because of the inventive, creative and delicious entrees, apps and desserts, along with excellent wine choices and fine service, Opus is worth every penny and is a favorite among all our friends!
