The team behind Opus Restaurant Cornwell Street (there’s also Cafe Opus over on Brindleyplace and Opus Bar by Snow Hill) opened their doors over ten years ago and have gone from strength to strength since then. Serving the best of British food, with two AA Rosettes to attest to their quality, Opus Restaurant is a serious restaurant indeed. As if the menu isn’t enough to tempt diners, the team at Opus Birmingham offer a number of dining experiences to showcase their food and their process. The Market Menu offers two satisfying courses at great prices culled from a list of dishes like cream of cauliflower soup and lemon & thyme goats cheese mousse with walnut bread and beetroot salad to start, and mains like slow cooked beef with creamed potato and winter vegetables or wild mushroom risotto with crispy hen’s egg and sherry vinegar reduction. The restaurant is also proud to introduce their brand new vegetarian menu, which includes options like roasted butternut squash tortellini and porcini mushroom risotto. The ever-popular Kitchen Table brings diners into the kitchen for a five-course tasting menu of the chef’s preferred dishes of the day and gives guests the chance to see a superb kitchen staff in action. This, coupled with their terrifically successful Source dinners, where diners are treated to a speciality menu and the chance to meet the producers behind their food, are a good indicator of the quality and ambition on display at Opus Restaurant Birmingham.
New find for us but will definitely be going back again! Attentive staff and great food! The ambience was fab - lovely setting - everything just right for our first visit with friends.
It was our first visit to Opus and we weren't disappointed... we had a drink in the bar first followed by a lovely 3 course meal which included mouthwatering smoked salmon starters, delicious duck and rib eye steak mains and desserts of creme brulee and lemon and white chocolate tart with raspberry sorbet ... all served by lovely staff. Would definitely recommend it.
We as a group of eight ladies out on a night out just for the fun of it decided to revisit opus. You did us proud from the minute we walked through the doors, absolute perfect immaculate service. Wonderful food for all of us. You were all absolute stars. Thank you for making our night so special.
