Not For Everyone – This is not a good experience for everyone. If you've ever been the victim of any kind of assault or sexual violence, this is not a good experience. This is a huge "trigger" experience for a lot of people.
I am not on board with the concept of everyone experiencing everyone else's problems. Would all those blind people want to experience first hand what it is to be a rape victim? Then don't expect us to want to experience first hand what it is to be a blind person.
Excellent Food and Service – I was invited here by our daughter and son-in-law and it is an experience I will not soon forget.
The menu has something for everyone. I had the filet, my wife the lamb and our daughter and son the salmon and they all melted in our mouths.
We could not believe that three hours had past when we were leaving, I would recommend to everyone. The food and visual experience is something you will not forget.
This is such a nice place. I love the food. I would recommend this to anyone. I will visit this place again. Good job. :D
Reviews rigged – I was considering going to this restaurant since the concept looks so cool. I saw too few reviews on the bay area page, so I googled it. There are more locations and more reviews in other cities.
Interestingly, I found glowing reviews by the same people in other locations. Very fishy! For example, the 5-start review "This Friday is the day of night" review by testa123 appears in the Santa Monica location verbatim.
Another 5-start review by joshuatree appears in both cities as well. I am steering clear of this place until I see some more honest local reviews. Also, if the restaurant is too lazy to properly rig the reviews, I am not sure how good the place itself is going to be...
Yummy! – Soo good! It was absolutely delicious. I would recommend to anyone. I can't wait for the next time I get to go.
where is the light switch – Man they really turned off my lights. I was seeing sparkles for about 30 minutes, before i could see nothing. What is better of both, I don't know, but both together added up to be the crescendo of 2008. The evening out of a decade, my night with the one I love in perfect memory whether we die together, or our ways part. This night will remain unforgotten.
This Friday is the day of night – I have been getting ready for this day a long time. I am putting my best gear on... gonna look real pretty, as there real beauty is proven when no one sees. This is so exiting and I will follow up when its on my 'seen' that done that list.
Interesting experience! So glad I went!! – Let me start off by saying I highly highly recommend Opaque. My friends and I visited the San Fran location and let me tell ya, it's a great place to visit with friends or sig other. We laughed from the minute we stepped foot into the darkness until we broke out into the light to pay our bill and leave!
The food was great and the dessert was even better! I can't recommend this experience enough. The staff was friendly and the seating was comfortable considering everything.
The only complaint was my friend ordered the chicken, being told there were no bones in it, she cut into it and found a bone! After the waitress took her plate and returned again with another boneless piece, my friend found yet another bone.
Strangely enough if you feel you might be prone to motion sickness I think there is a chance you could feel a little woozy in there. You are truly unable to see anything. It's total blackness and it is a little disorientating when you step in there. Once you get over the nervousness and being anxious and you let yourself relax, the experience is something that shouldn't be missed if you visit San Fran.
Johnny Depp was there!!!! or at least someone that damn sounds like him, I could have sworn I heard his voice. Staff wouldn't tell me as 'people' come and hide in the dark. Apparently more so in Hollywood where this originated. We were not the first ones to find out but apparently Thrillist subscribers had the first go on this as they were on to it before Opaque even opened getting them into the opening night, shame on you dailycandy!!!! I am subscribing.
Piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitttch black! That is all all I have to say! It does not get darker. At no point can you see your own hand in front of your eyes. This place is wild. Just opened and I will tell my kids that I had the pleasure of beeing the first one to review.
Bottom line is: This place is not a restaurant, it is something different which does not even have a name yet.
Let me try. This is: Somethingcrazylicios ...mhm... That works.
