Ambiance is as good as it gets in Mt. P. I love the Tagliatelle with mushrooms, the Pappardelle Bolognese, the Ravioli, the Butternut Squash Angolotti and the Chitarra with shrimp. Once I see good pasta I never look further, although I have also had the salmon and it was delicious. My date often gets steaks or other meat dishes says... More

We arrived late and were delighted to get take-out from Opal. Wished we could have eaten in as the atmosphere was cordial. Delicious pasta special with shrimp and apple salad with shrimp - both delicious. Will visit again!

Girls' trip/reunion with old friends from college who all three live in different states. This was our nice dinner out for our long weekend (we decided not to brave a downtown restaurant that night). Nice ambiance and good food. I live in the Southwest, but travel to Charleston pretty often and I'd totally go back to Opal. GREAT charcuterie, especially... More

We had a lovely visit - nice little hidden gem in Mount Pleasant. It's a small restaurant, but it's nicely laid out and the decor is very warm and inviting. Our experience was anything but short of excellent from the service to the food. We all tried their pasta dishes (spaghetti/meatballs for my son, pasta w/mushrooms/truffles, gnocchi w/shrimp & chorizo,... More

...this place knows what it is doing, and it does it right! My husband started with the Spicy Shrimp Bruschetta - the problem here is you only get one, so not much sharing with the table, but I snagged a bite and it was very good! They had a fall salad on the menu with green apples, brie and a... More

We are locals and stopped by for a quick dinner. We ordered and ate at the bar. We decided on a meat and cheese plate and a salad. Food was ok nothing great. However the service was not very attentive. They were not very busy and we felt like we were disturbing the bar maid. Not sure we would go... More

My wife and I go to Opal's every few months, as it is one of our favorites in MP, and we do not always want to drive all the way into Charleston. I do not understand why it is not ranked in the top 10, as its food quality is excellent, it has a very nice ambience, and the service... More

We wanted a special treat for our last night in Charleston and ultimately decided on Opal a relative of one of our regulars-Langdons. We were impressed at the outset starting with the cordial greeting from the receptionist to the gregarious and knowledgeable bartender ( who gets kudos for helping us pick out a bottle of wine which on Monday is...

Operated by the same group that owns Langdon's, the excellence carries over very well in this more contemporary venue with an Italian flair. The wine list is extensive and offers excellent choices for any budget. The list of appetizers goes on and on with delicious charcuterie and artisan cheese small plates as well as everything from mussels to meatballs. The... More
