Opus Pittsburgh - mini review

Aimee | Jan 5, 2004 09:55 AM

Went to Opus for dinner Saturday evening before going to Heinz Hall to see The Graduate.

The atmosphere was nice, big booths kind of old fashioned steak house feel.

The duck tortellini appetizer was quite good, with a creamy wild mushroom sauce that didn't overpower the woodsy flavor of the trumpet mushrooms. I ordered the scallop signature dish and my husband the salmon, both dishes were good although we traded entrees as my husband likes his fish underdone by the standards of most Pittsburgh restaurants. Overall I liked the accompaniments to the salmon better than the fish itself (black lentils with rapini and some whipped potatoes with a hint of goat cheese) The scallop that I sampled was fine but unremarkable.

They have a decent wine list but I am not sure why it is 'Award winning' as they claim. Overall it was a nice time but I felt a bit pricey for what we got $9 for the appetizers and each entree was $27, salads courses are alacart.

So I would probably stop there for a drink and an appetizer again but sit out at the wine bar where I could admire the amazing renovation job that they have done to the building.
