Hmmm not sure why the shortcut is not working for you.. but you can always open it by going to "Develop > Show Error Console. If you don't see the Develop menu, you'll need to turn it on using Safari Preferences. Open Safari > Preferences, and click on the Advanced Tab." (http://www.wickedlysmart.com/hfjsconsole/)

To access the developer console in Safari, use the Develop > Show Error Console menu item (Option-Cmd-C):

Check your keyboard layout. I had changed mine to US PC for some reason, and the Option key wouldn't do much. Changed it back to the standard US Mac layout, and voila! It works now.
