Wonderful wine selection and helpful staff to lead you through the meal with excellent pairings. Park across the street at the Renaissance Hotel if you have trouble finding a space.

The building and ambiance are amazing. Our waitress was top notch. Our salads and entrees were great. The salad portions were large, entrees medium and desert small.

Attended a business function with 12 people and treated to a wonderful meal at L'Opera. Very personable staff, nice atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed their food choices and appetizers. My sea bass was very tasty; the risotto looked really good too.

L'Opera has an amazing staff and does have a private room for large groups. They will do an amazing job exceeding your expectations. (No I do not work there :-))

Reservations accepted for New Year's Eve with their own Opera Singer. The public street celebration, outside their doors, is separate and not associated with restaurant.
