To our opal family and friends

With the Coronavirus crisis, we are all experiencing an event of an unprecedented nature, and at opal restaurant and bar our foremost concern is providing for the safety of our guests and our staff.

We are serving on a takeout basis, (curbside if desired) from 5-8pm, every night.  We also now have delivery service from Restaurant Connection, Doordash, Grubhub, and will soon be live with Seven Rooms.  As it always has, our food comes in fresh every day and thus we are offering a limited takeout menu at this time, with every item discounted 10%. And yes, its true, we have cocktails to go, such as our Mandarin Orange Ginger Cosmo, or our Blackberry Jalapeno Margarita, now available, also at 10% off.  Wine or beer to go is 30% off, and discounting for wines over $100 is negotiable. Discounts apply only to items ordered directly from us rather than delivery services.

Tonight’s special is Blackened Chicken on Black Bean Risotto with Tomatoes, Anaheim Chiles, and Cilantro    20.95

New: opal’s Takeout Pizza Dinner Combo for 2.

2 individual pizzas from our menu (must be same pizza type),  large salad (Gourmet Mixed Greens with our Herb Vinaigrette  or opal’s Classic Caesar Salad),  our homemade bread  and a dark chocolate pecan tart for $40 plus tax.

10 percent takeout discount does not apply to Takeout Combos

To arrange a pickup directly from us, please call 805 966 9676 from 5pm on, to leave an order within 15-20 minutes of when you want to pick up. Unless otherwise requested we will take your credit card information over the phone so you will not need to sign anything. Any gratuities will go into our opal staff relief fund for those we had to lay off temporarily during this emergency.

Or you may contact Restaurant Connection, Grubhub, or Doordash for delivery.

We appreciate everyone’s support and friendship and look forward to the day this crisis is past and we can once again welcome you to dine with us in-house and enjoy each other’s company as we have done for the last 20 years.  We wish everyone safety and health during this challenging time.
