Opaque-Dining in The Dark
Taking you through a journey of taste, sound and touch, in the dark
  • Uniquely Splendid
  • Eye/Soul Opening
  • $99 for a 3 course dinner

Arriving in Northern California on the crest of the latest dining trend sweeping through Europe, based on an ingenious European concept that has enjoyed great popularity in cities like Berlin, Paris and Vienna the first ever Dining in the Dark experience is now available in San Francisco.

Just imagine that you can not see for an hour or two, that you are abandoning vision in exchange for a new, multi-sensual dining experience. Opaque is enhancing our senses of taste, smell, touch and hearing by abandoning one that we often take for granted? This is "Dining in the Dark."

Brought to you by Opaque, the dining in the dark experience allows you to willingly plunge into a world of sensitivity you have never experienced before, taking you through a journey of taste, sound and touch, all in the dark.

Editorial Review for Opaque-Dining in The Dark – by Patrick Heig

A European concept by way of LA, "dark dining" is like a power outtage with gourmet cuisine and white-gloved service. Before entering, diners are presented with a multiple-choice (beef or fish, salad or pasta, etc.), three-course prix-fixe menu. Guests are then introduced to their servers--all of whom are blind--and led by the hand to their tables. The inside of the restaurant isn't dim, or even "dark;" it is eyeball-achingly black, the idea being that with one sense completely extinguished, taste and smell are heightened. Hearing sharpens, too, and people-watching becomes people-listening as diners feel their way through the meal (most people quickly abandon silverware), and start planning their next blind date.

Insider Tips

Look good

Or, rather, don't look bad; this meal can get messy, so don't wear white unless you want it tie-dyed with food and wine stains, and don't wear anything that's irreplaceable.

Know before you go

No walk-ins are taken at this reservation-only affair.


It's fairly easy to find a spot on McAllister, and there is a parking lot on Gough and Grove.

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.
