Salmon tartar was excellent,
wasabi mayo could have used a bit more wasabi. Lamb leg was cooked nicely and large portion (especially for Restaurant Week), creme caramel was fine, nothing special. Service was not great, we had to specifically ask for the RW menus, there were far too long pauses between courses which may have been the reason for the entrees arriving at room temperature. Stars consider the RW lunch price of $25 and the large portions."

Our server was not great and let
us order a slow cooked meal at a temperature. However, the manager was more than accomidating and really worked to turn it into a positive dining experience."

The bar/restaurant was nice but
the food and service was just ok."

Stopped in for weekday lunch and
the restaurant week menu just happened to appeal to us so we thought we'd give it a try. I was skeptical it being a hotel restaurant. We both got the same 3 courses. First course arrived immediately - corn "soup" was more like corn flavored milk with a glop of "store-bought" guacamole. The guacamole added some flavor and dimension but it was weird to bite into onions. 2nd course took much longer - lamb which on the menu was supposed to be with beans, but we got frozen carrots and zucchini that were half cooked and still crunchy. We decided to order truffle fries which didn't come until our lamb was cold and after we asked again - these were tasty! Creme caramel was ok, tasted store bought also."

A huge let down! Service was
extremely poor for a restaurant that was not busy at lunch. It took 15 min. for a waiter to take our order & not knowledgeable about the menu. Our appetizer took a while to come & then the order was wrong. We finished our appetizers & sat w/our empty plates for 30 min. Plates were finally taken away & we sat for another 15 min. While waiting for our meals folks who sat after us were getting served & it seemed something was wrong w/their meals. A gentleman’s hamburger had to go back. The waiter originally took their meal to a different table. Food was fair (overdone) & finally we asked for the check & the bill was incorrect as they charged us for another person’s meal. Please think twice before going."

croque monsieur was soggy instead
of crisp, with ham between damp slices of bread and cheese melted on top. fries were good but a huge portion overwhelming the plate. my guest's club sandwich this day was excellent, but last time it was slabs of chicken and long pieces of undercooked bacon. sitting outside on the terrace is great and the traffic noise was rarely intrusive"

Came here for lunch during
restaurant week. Had the leg of lamb and the girl had the Chicken Milanese. Lamb looks like it was reheated and the flavor just wasn't there. The chicken was deep fried, which was unexpected. Who deep fries a "chicken Milanese?!" Service was great but the kitchen was a serious let-down. I feel bad for the wait staff who works there."

I dined here with a friend for
lunch. The hostesses' disposition was very strange. It was almost a turn off for my dining experience. However, a very polite waitress made up for it. Although a few items were forgotten, I would try this place again for a quiet midday drink and a few small bites."

Nice place to see the game but
service not really prepared for such of amount of people. Salad very small with few pieces of cheese...just to taste but not really to eat and no table for me so I eaten in a corner of a table when I booked my place in advance."

First time was a delight. Second
time food was cold, service slow and apathetic. Such a let down! Thought I'd found a neighborhood gem. Disappointed. Need a third time as a tie breaker."

Opia has a notable Wine List.
Unfortunately, their wine list does not reflect their actual stock. The first wine we picked was a nice French white. Ten minutes later we were told they were out of that wine. Then we picked an Italian wine. Fifteen minutes later, we were told that too was out of stock. Our third choice, a different French Wine, drew the same response after 5 minutes, followed by the manager soon coming over and saying they had found that Wine. Thirty minutes after our first order, we had our wine, which was wonderful. The food was Outstanding."

You'd have to know about it but
once you're there: very nice ambiance, friendly service, quiet and great booths. Food is good, loved the bouillabaisse! Great lunch menu!"
Dined on 6/5/2014
The setting is wonderful and the
food delicious, but the service was extremely slow by any standards and I sat with an empty cocktail for quite a while before anyone thought to ask if I wanted another cocktail, or a glass of wine with dinner. The restaurant was not very busy, nor was the bar."

The egg hunt and the Easter bunny
were great!! The staff was very attentive to the children. We loved it!"

Expensive and food is not good.
Waitress was not friendly and barely understood what I was ordering. She was unfamiliar with the menu."

Very cool space in a hotel
restaurant. Good food and wine - was great for relaxing and enjoying an evening with friends. "

nice location and when it finally
gets warmer you can even eat on the little balcony's above 57th Street, which may not be everyone's idea of "fresh air" but it's NYC! Fried artichokes were delicious."

I came here on Thursday, 3/6/14 to
celebrate a friend's birthday. The waiters were extremely nice, and the food as great."

One of my high school friends,
whom I'd not seen in 30 years, came to NYC. We both love French food, so we took advantage of Restaurant Week to try Opia. My friend had Soupe au Pistou, Boeuf Bourguignon, Mousse au Chocolat and I had Salmon Tartare, Escalope de Veau Normande, and Pistachio Creme Brulee. We each drank a glass of Cote du Rhone wine. The food and wine were delicious. Portions were perfect for lunch. We definitely plan to return for another repast."

A beautiful second-floor
restaurant with a very creative menu and outstanding service. Attracts French visitors with its cuisine."

It should have been called toast
with a touch of lettuce.....and 4 fragments of lobster! I was out with a client...did not want to complain"

Went to dinner with my husband
this past Sunday evening at Opia. We had a very nice meal, great service and delicious food. We shared the escargot appetizer which was delicious, one of the best we have ever had. For entrees I chose the mussels with the french fries and he had the hanger steak. We both loved our dishes very much. We had coffee and dessert, he had the mousse and I had the "floating island". His was the better choice. With one cocktail each our bill came to $120. We thought that was reasonable for excellent food and very good service. Would go back again if I was in the neighborhood. One small gripe, we sat at a table that was very poorly lit (one candle wont due) so we had to use our phones to read the menu."

Opia is a favorite for business
lunches because the food id always good and the tables are spaced widely apart. The service is attentive and the decor is tasteful."

I have a personal rule of no
eating at hotel's but took a chance. I should have stayed with my personal rule. The food appeared to be purchased from Costco but did not have the great taste f Costco food. It was too loud, the wait staff were plastic. Worst ever thanksgiving dinner."

Opia was wonderful from start to
finish. We were treated well from the moment we arrived. The service was beyond excellent. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was beautiful. It is pricey and you need to know that going in. Well worth it. Truly a hidden gem!"

We had Saturday brunch at Opia. It
was quiet and pleasant. The menu was good enough. Service was fine. We'd do it again."

Typical hotel restaurant though
this one was even less inspired than most. Boring menu poorly executed"
Dined on 10/1/2013
Waited for well over an hour for
the main course to arrive. Told that there were communication problems with the kitchen, but no apologies or compensation for extraordinarily late service. Order of short ribs consisted of one rib. Not worth the visit."

Great breakfast. Perfect place for

have been to opia several times
this spring and especially liked the small crustless turkey club, with thin turkey, avacado, and a wonderful dressing. had the sandwich this week and it was thrown together with two slices of bread cut in half, one half holding a thick folded slice of meat that was not identifiable turkey and a piece of lettuce, and the other half had a thick slice of red onion and one poorly cooked piece of bacon. there was a miniscule bit of the sauce on one slice of bread. I only ate half the sandwich and left the onion and bacon. Five hours later had very bad stomach cramps. my guest had the steak and said it was fine. will never go back........"

We discovered Opia with a large
crowd on Mother's Day and each time we go we're not disappointed. It's a hidden gem on the upper west side that is especially great for Sunday brunch. The Hanger Steak is terrific!"

I had a really lovely time at
Opia. The food was very good and the staff was courteous and responsive to our needs. They accommodated our extra guest with no problems. We had a wonderful experience and plan on making it our next girls night out. It was a true pleasure!"

Breakfast was terrible. The
continental breakfast ($22 i think) was some toasted frenchish bread, some dry toast, and some sort of pastry - one pat of butter and a small jar of jam. I ordered tomato juice. it came late in the meal and they served me bloody mary mix. Coffee was cold. My companion had eggs benedict which did not look appealing. Service was slow although the place was pretty empty. All in all a bad experience."

""The truffle macaroni is so

Went here for Mother's Day brunch
with a party of 4. It was fine given the diverse tastes in the group. The room was attractive, menu had something for everyone, etc. but the service was unfortunately bad. We ordered 1 hot coffee, 1 iced coffee and a cocktail as we were looking at the menu. Got the cocktail right away but waited 30 minutes for the coffees and then had to ask two more times before we were served."

Everything was great and the wait
staff was amazing...the French toast was to die for...can't wait to go back and taste the flan.."
Dined on 5/12/2013
We had Mother's Day brunch here,
simply because we live a block away and didn't want to walk too far. We were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. No complaints about any of our dishes: salmon, black sea bass, french toast, steak and eggs, chocolate mousse. There was a piano player, lots of families, big windows that look out on 57th (and a few tables outside on the balcony), comfy banquettes -- all in all a really good experience. We didn't expect much out of a hotel restaurant, so we were very pleased."

A perfect place to meet friends
when we are visiting the City. Relaxed, informal dining; lots of appetizers to share; good choices on menu, Quality of food and service is always good."
