We visited Opus as a surprise birthday meal. We had heard good things but never had chance to visit. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and set up, open and spacious. The service was brilliant and attentive. The menu is varied and in my opinion...More

The Cornwall Street location was about 3 streets away from the cathedral in Birmingham. We needed instructions to find it but once there, we saw the scaffolding outside and were surprised, in an unprepossessing location, at the size of the restaurant inside. Certainly NOT a...More

An outstanding meal of simple but perfectly cooked ingredients. Wye Valley asparagus with superb hollandaise and exquisitely poached egg. Sensational plaice. Delicate rhubarb and pastry. Our visiting Italian colleague was seriously impressed. As were we. Top notch.

I have been wanting to go for some time, I visit the bar and enjoy the brunch there. For the set price of £30 for 2 courses or £35 for 3 courses you really can’t go wrong. We both had corn beef brisket as a...More

For me, Opus is a restaurant that lacks ambience. This is nothing to do with the 2 years of scaffolding across the front the owners, staff and customers have had to put up with but there is a cavernous coldness about the interior and hollow...More

A family of fourteen in a private room for a celebration. The food and service was excellent with staff constantly filling up wine and water glasses. I heard no complaints from anyone, just lots of empty plates!

Booked for wedding anniversary. Have to say staff knowledgable, food excellent and good wine list. Although restaurant was quiet we find not feel alone and staff were very unobtrusive. Loved the fact served petite fours to mark the occasion.

Description
Opus Restaurant, in Birmingham’s business district, is a top spot for a business lunch or a schmoozey dinner. The cavernous dining room is a dramatic open space decorated in muted hues. The team at Opus are proud of their modern British menu which showcases locally sourced free range meats and freshly caught fish. Favourites include the Lyme Bay Scallops with Belly of Pork and the Grilled Lobster served with Chips and Garlic Butter. The glamorous waiting staff are super-friendly, and the renowned in-house patisserie gives you a great excuse to have a naughty limoncello-cheesecake ending to your meal. It would be rude not to.
