Opal Info

Thursday, June 24, 2021


Welcome back to a reopened California! What does that mean? That has been left up to each business to decide, so here is what we at opal restaurant and bar have decided. Staff here at opal are all vaccinated but we have all committed to remain masked until July 15 while serving you, just to make sure that there are no unexpected consequences from this re-opening, as there have been at each of the others. We feel this additional level of caution will not interfere with your enjoyment of our restaurant but will serve as an extra level of protection for you while you are with us. If you are vaccinated please feel free to dine with us mask-free, and pleas ask us if you have any questions, just know that every decision we make is based on making sure we are doing everything needed to put this horrible pandemic behind us once and for all!


Bar service is now also once again fully open, though we have limited bar space available.


In addition to outside dining on our outdoor heated dining parklet, where we are committed to creating a warm, welcoming, and savory experience for you and your guests, we now have inside dining available, so please let us know your preference for inside or outside dining: due to space limitations, we cannot guarantee seating in either area at this time, but if at all possible we will grant your request.


Our Dinner hours have expanded- We are now open from 5-9 pm Sunday-Thursday and 5-10 pm Friday and Saturday.


In addition, as always, we remain open for takeout, either pickup or delivery. Please call or order online and we will prepare a wonderful meal for you to enjoy at home.


Your safety and comfort are always the most important considerations for us and guide our seating decisions. This is especially true now as we add elements to our parklet to better manage the occasional challenging weather situations which arise. Consequently, our ability to offer outside dining will be based on the weather, and we will update this page daily with that information, which follows below:


Today, June 24, there is no rain forecast, so we will be able to serve you outside tonight, if desired, with our heaters going to keep you warm if needed. Please call us at 805-966-9676 to inquire about availability and reserve a spot if we have an opening at the time you would like. 


For pickup, State Street is partially blocked but there is limited parking available by approaching State Street from Arlington Avenue.
