Great food but it is very loud
Love the grilled shrimp salad and the oysters are wonderful. The ahi is great too. The main dining room is very loud. Service is sometimes slow and the ran out of ahi last time I ate there but they gave me a $20 card. Highly recommend. We eat here all the time.

Great Happy Hour Values
Get to Opah's for Happy Hour and take advantage of the cocktail and appetizer discounts. The Anjou Pear Martini and the Lemon Drop are outstanding. Bacon wrapped dates unbelievable! Terrific seafood.

I took a risk on the Trout and it paid off. A delicious dish that I hope to try again soon.

Enjoyed the experience tremendously! Their menu changed about 2 weeks ago and more items were added. Thus, ample variety of salads, appetizers and main courses. I had the candied salmon salad and it was fabby!

We eat at Opah often, always outside on the patio and mostly during the happy hour which ends at 6:30. The food is excellent and their happy hour prices pretty good. We love the Cioppino.

Great Food but Average Service
i've been to Opah's before the the service was always outstanding. This past trip it was only average for a restaurant of this caliber.

Wide appeal for seafood grill
Dined at Opah for the first time with a girlfriend and was not disappointed by the seafood. Diver scallops on risotto - fabulous! Fish and chips of big pieces of halibut were perfect. I was surprised with the diversity of the menu. If you aren't a seafood fan, there is plenty to order. Nice wine by the glass, too. Noticed the big, round table on the patio was filled by a party enjoying cocktails. Parking is a challenge because of the three other restaurants in that corner of the parking lot. Arrive early.

New to the area, I had a recommendation from a friend who told me it was a great place to go and I agree. The food was amazing, service great, and loved the vibe of the restaurant. A nice find in a sea of huge chain restaurants!

The wine prices are very expensive. I would bring your own and pay the corkage.

Opah's food was good & the service friendly, helpful, & professional. One can sit either inside or on the patio but the noise level is high in both areas. Cocktails are always a feature at the various Opah restaurants & the wine list is adequate. For a friendly, casual meal with friends Opah fill the need well.

Best upscale casual in OC!!
We LOVE this place! In OC's sea of casual dining chain restaurants, Opah is unique. Food is always VERY GOOD! The service is genuine and exceptional. Ask for Deanna. She's our favorite! The bar scene is hip and fun - a great divorcee / cougar scene!! Very fun! Also... Interestingly... Our kids love this place too (but in the dining room.... No need to overwhelm them with the cougar/MILF crowd!!). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Sons and I love it.
We go all the time and I love the oysters and prosecco and the boys love the Ahi. The shrimp grapefruit salad is wonderful. Only downside is that it is really noisy. Hard to hear conversations unless you sit outside.

Good food and appetizers,
Good food and appetizers, but primarily keyed toward a happy hour crowd, it gets really noisy if you're sitting inside. Loud enough to make it difficult to hold conversations with people across the table. If you go early though, the sweet potatoe chips, the bacon wrapped dates, fish n' chips, and the seafood salad are all excellent dishes. We would recommend the place if you go early and want to have an enjoyable dinner, if you want to go for drinks, food and fun times then go anything after 6:00 PM.

We had the candied salmon and crab cake for lunch. Always fresh and flavorful in generous portions. The service was attentive and prompt. Outdoor seating area is wonderful and breezy.

Great food, great service
Everything you expect from OPAH and more in that it is a very nice atmosphere for being in a strip mall. Go there. Eat.

Used to be our favorite restaurant
Used to be our favorite restaurant but the chicken dish was greasy and I should have been told the starch was optional.

Beware of patio chairs
3 of us sat on patio and had to leave before desert due to very uncomfortable chairs. Waitress agreed they get lots of complaints.
Both figs dishes were good but my wife did not like the chicken.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service are always reliably excellent. Expect a lot of noise on a Friday or Saturday night with a busy bar scene...

Great happy hour
No view, great menu, fabulous oysters at happy hour prices, fresh fish outstanding!

One of my fav!!
I enjoy the happy hour menu and sitting outdoors. Very good crab cakes and mojito!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We got the shrimp tacos special & crabcake &it was yummy!!! I would definitely go again!!

Very good food; ignored the b-day
Our waitress was very nice, attentive, but not hovering, and apologized for the very slow bar service. The grilled opah I had with papaya salsa was very good, and my husband's hazelnut encrusted halibut he enjoyed very much. He was also very impressed with the clam chowder because there were nice large pieces of clams and the seasoning was perfect. It was the day of my husband's birthday and he is one of those people who likes the restaurant to do something. I wrote the information on my OpenTable reservations, but they ignored the occasion and he was disappointed.

Great service and yummy food!
My girlfriend and I celebrated our birthdays together at Opahs and received fantastic service along with yummy food. The server was kind enough to let us choose our desserts on the house.

Gluten Free Menu
We have dined at Opah before but this time was really GREAT. We were a party of 5 for a birthday celebration. 3 adults and 2 children. The other adults were thinking of ordering one app in particular. One child and myself are gluten free for allergies and I asked the waitress if that app had flour because we couldn't eat it. She said yes and then came back to the table with a printed list of foods from the menu that are gluten free! It made ordering so much easier than asking about every dish! Food was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We have been here before and every time we leave we always say why don't we eat here more often! We will be back soon!

Always a favorite
My husband and I have been going to Opah since it first opened before we had kids. It is close to our house and still gives us the feeling of going out for some fine dining. We love and ambience out on the patio. The food is delish. The wait staff and chefs are abundantly friendly and accommodating. Now we bring our kids, one of which has very severe food allergies, and they always go the extra mile to make us feel like she will be safe eating there. Definitely a neighborhood gem that we hopes sticks around for a long time!

Great place for business dinners
My colleagues and I dined at OPAH for a business dinner. I loved that, not like other restaurants, they extended Happy Hour drink and food prices outside of the bar area. We appreciated that very much. Anytime a customer feels like they're getting a great deal is a good thing.
Food presentation is excellent and my rib-eye was especially tasty! I asked for medium rare and got it! I loved the drink selections - there's something for everybody. We had the half-baked chocolate for dessert and it was to die for.
I highly recommend OPAH!

Really you must have the Oysters and the Brie Fondue, just yummy and the Hawaiian Rib Eye was to dies for. Thank you Opah for a great meal!
