Welcome to

Opus Dining and Cocktails
Great events happen when the environment is simply perfect. We feature an all-original cuisine utilizing many culinary influences. We also offer full cocktail service, wine selections by bottle and glass, and cold beer on draft.



For the past nine years, we have been about service and listening to you, our valued customer. We make everything fresh on site, and we have the most creative chef in all of Orange County! Opus started out as an Italian Restaurant. We haven't forgotten our roots, but we strive to offer variety and adventure to the our large number of loyal customers. So every once in a while, something new will come out of our kitchen, usually to meet the request of a frequent diner.


The Taste of Italy and Beyond
Opus serves many of your Italian favorites alongside American Classics, Prime Steaks, Ribs, Chicken, and Mouth-Watering Seafood dishes.
