Great food and nice location on state street in the heart of downtown. Friendly staff and nice vibes. Love the chocolate pecan tart!!


Food, service, and drinks were all fantastic! I would refer anyone visiting the area towards Opal to try for sure!


Amazing welcome by Richard, the owner. Excellent food!!


Service was a bit slow to begin with ie 10 mins before water arrived. We had an issue with one meal (no details on purpose) as the issue was dealt with with professionalism. So rather than slamming OPAL we say thanks for your attention. We enjoyed our food.


Pleasant atmosphere - we were outside with heaters. Very nice! Service was great. Food was excellent!


It was a nice place to catch up with friends. A very casual and classy place!


We enjoyed our dinner at Opal. The food and service were great.

Lovely meal with incredible food and excellent service. Thank you


Thoroughly enjoyed interacting with all the staff. A well coordinated team effort.


Seems like we are there once a week. Never disappoints !

Great food, good service and easy location. Definitely go back to try more of the delicious food.


Outstanding food and service! My wife and I come here every time we visit Santa Barbara and it's been 4 years since our last visit. We had the phyllo crusted tiger prawns and the pan seared scallops on warm angel hair pasta for starters. The coconut curry dipping sauce on the prawns is to die for! It is so good; absolutely one of my favorite sauces ever! The scallops were excellent with watercress, avocado, tomato, and a very tasty roasted red pepper vinaigrette. Just the perfect amount of bite to the sauce. The variety of bread was outstanding and very tasty, baked fresh in the restaurant daily. We both ordered the Alaskan Halibut, with a sweet apple and mango chutney, Basmati rice, green beans and broccoli. The chutney sauce was perfect with the fish. The rice and vegetables were excellent. We really enjoy our dinner after a four-year absence. They have outdoor dining and there is parking available on State St. The price was reasonable. There was a private party in the adjacent room and unfortunately we were seated next to the door into that room so it was a bit loud. Other table in the restaurant would have been much quieter. The service was outstanding with just the right amount of attention paid to us.


Our favorite Santa Barbara restaurant! We love going there with family and friends.
