Hello Everyone, Great News: The governor has lifted the restriction on outside dining! However, as always we want to do it right so we will be phasing it in slowly and on a limited basis for the next few days.


Your safety and comfort are always the most important considerations for us and guide our seating decisions. This is especially true now, while our outside dining area is being re-designed to provide more shelter from winter weather. 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, January 26, we will fire up our heaters again and will be able to offer a small amount of limited outdoor seating for those who would like to join us. 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. 


Meanwhile, opal restaurant and bar remains open for takeout and delivery from 5-8 pm Sunday-Thursday, and 5-9 pm Friday & Saturday.


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


We have a great lineup of cocktails we can serve to go. At the moment they are only available via phone order for pickup, however we are working on online ordering and delivery as well. Please see the cocktail menu at the bottom of this page along with our specials. 


Our entire menu is available for takeout via the menu links below. Cocktails, beer and wine also available to go (phone in orders only), and during this time of takeout-only service, all bottles of wine are 20% off.
