opal restaurant and bar is open for in-house dining again! 5-9pm Weeknights, 5-10pm Friday & Saturday. See In-house Dinner Menu link below

We have just been given permission to open for in-house dining, but we remain mindful of the need to "do it right", instituting new procedures and re-training staff according to the new government and health department protocols, to make dining with us enjoyable AND safe. Our seating is limited, but we are able to use more outside spaces, so we should have room for everyone who wants to dine with us. To see our Menu click on the In-House Dinner Menu button below.

Meanwhile we continue to offer both Curb-side Pickup and Online Delivery, every night from at least 5-9pm. We will adjust our hours as we re-open more fully. Our limited menu ensures everything is fresh, and yes! we can serve cocktails (like our Mandarin Orange Ginger Cosmo, or Blackberry Jalapeno Margarita), beer, and wine to go as well as in-house. For all pickup orders, food and cocktails are 10% off, and wine or beer to go is 30% off, with pricing for wines over $95 negotiable.

For Curbside pickup, State Street is currently blocked, so park on Sola St and walk around the corner, or park on Arlington Avenue and walk across the street to pickup.

To arrange Curb-side Pickup directly from opal, please call 805 966 9676 from 5pm on, to leave an order within 15-20 minutes of when you want to pick up. Or you may order from our new online service, with some limitations: we are not currently able to offer beverages as an online option. Please bear with us as we transition to offering more expanded online ordering.
