OPAH Restaurant & Bar @ Town Center Aliso Viejo
Can't be beathappily surprised that quality and service still important to this local gem.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMOUTH WATERINGI HAVE NOT EVER HAD BETTER GREEN LIP MUSSELS THAN HERE - NOT TO MENTION THE PLATING! THE CHEF'S HERE ARE A TRUE FIND. THEY WERE SERVED PRETTY AS A FLOWER. THE MUSSELS, THE BROTH, AND THE TINY BITS OF LEEKS AND TOMATO WERE OUTSTANDING! THE ONLY DOWN SIDE WAS THE PRICE...
THE OTHER PARTIES IN MY GROUP ORDERED CRAB CAKES AND PRIME RIB DIP WHICH WERE BOTH OUTSTANDING AS WELL. THEY SERVE YOU A NICE PORTION ALSO.
I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THE FOOD - JUST WISH IT WERE A BIT CHEAPER SO I COULD AFFORD TO GO MORE OFTEN.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMconsistently greathave been going to Opah's for years - the place is ALWAYS wonderful . . food great, service teriffic, often see friends. it is just a very popular place - - and well deserved6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good and theThe food was good and the service was excellent... both far better than the OPAH restaurant in Irvine.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local spotWe have been to Opah 3 times in the past few months after only once in the past 10 years. The restaurant definitely improved since we went after it had first opened. It must have changed ownership. The food is very good and a decent value. There are some very unique appetizers. It has a wide variety menu.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service and atmospherecould not have been better and its across the street from where I live, awesome menu5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as alwaysAlways come back for great food and Everett, the mgr gives us such excellent Svc each time.

Nice evening out!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!My sister and I often meet here for lunch on our "shopping days". We meet half-way between Los Angeles and San Diego, and Opah has become one of our favorites.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food after a Wait!Thank goodness the food is delicious and nicely presented! Our waiter disappeared from Planet Earth twice for over 15 minutes at a stretch each time! So, it was a long evening, with lots of rumbling tummies. In the end we were pleased with our dishes, but the waiter's tip took a deserved beating!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!Very good menu and excellent service. Highly recommend!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Special Occasion SpotOpah consistently has an impressive menu full of many great steak, chicken and seafood options. This is the restaurant I always choose for special occasions such as my 18th birthday many years ago, and my graduation from graduate school, and this year mother's day. I was a little disappointed that there was not a brunch menu but the salads are perfect for lunch time. Every dish comes with a really big piece of meat or fish, which is good. They serve bread when you first arrive with a delicious pink colored butter. The cocktail menu is great and the ambiance inside is very classy. The outdoor deck is very large, however, I would not recommend it for a warm day because it tends to trap the heat. Overall, I definitely recommend Opah.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOPAH is just so consistent.OPAH is just so consistent. Love the new menu...the crusted halibut was excellent. They do it well.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dinner was great; we splitOur dinner was great; we split a salad and the 'special' entree of the evening; everything was delicious and well prepared; very attractively presented.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHazelnut Crusted Halibut is EPIC!LOVE Opah! Hazelnut Crusted Halibut is really amazing!!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a great place to go forJust a great place to go for any occasion. Enjoy everything every time!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMConversation damper but deliciousEverything was good, except you're two inches away from the person sitting next to you... They're so close, you can't concentrate on your conversation because all you hear is theirs. Other than that, the food was great, the drinks were great, the service was great.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA great neighborhood favoritethe service was great and the food was delicious as always. I usually enjoy fresh fish there but I have a particular fondness for the opah fish which is usually served with a fruit salsa. It varies from mango or pineapple, etcetera. I love California Fusion cuisine and this is a great place to enjoy it.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMJust for the Halibut, I got to OpahOpah is my destination when I come to this area and it always delivers. Tonight's "finds" were the Kobe sliders... very delicious, a Sonoma white that our server Barbara recommended to go with the tried-and-true Halibut $27, that was a huge entree so two of us shared it. The idea here is to eat a bit earlier, walk over to the movie theater, scrunch down in the seat and watch a flick, while relaxing. Well, that's one way. See you around Opah the next time I'm in town. Oh yeah, about $50 a person including booze and tip, is about average.12/27/2012 12:00:00 AM
