This was our second time at
This was our second time at Opa. Our server Katie was professional, upbeat and attentive. I was happy to see the restaurant was busy. The Saganaki is a must try if you never had it before. We also had Braised Lamb Shank and Rabbit. Both entree's were cooked to perfection. Drinks, appetizers and entrees with tip for 2 under $100.00 in the city. How can you go wrong? Love this place. We will be back.

The yelp reviews were so-so
The yelp reviews were so-so for this, but a Greek friend of mine said it was good and authentic and it was easy to get into last minute Friday night so we checked it out. It was really good, we enjoyed each of the 5 small plates we ordered.

We made last minute late night
We made last minute late night reservations. The food was delicious. Portions were decent sized. They Gyros were delicious. We were happy to discover the beer garden in the very back. It was cold outside but they had heaters. The beers outside were cheaper than inside and the selection was nice. It was super loud inside but we did go late night. Would live to try going earlier in the evening.

A must try!
This was my first time at Opa. Although the waitress was slightly rude the other staff made up for it along with the food! The waitress recommended the two of us order 4 small plates and 2 entrees which would have been entirely too much food!! We instead ordered 4 delicious "small" plates. The spread was fantastic, the hummus was to die for! The food runner even offered us some extra pita so we could finish all the dips. The quinoa and cucumber salad was refreshing and the cranberry vinagarette made it just that much more. The Saganaki was a first for us, the outside edges were so crisp and the inside nice and gooey. Yum! The fried calamari was pretty standard, the roasted red pepper dip a nice surprise. Definitely will return!

A Gem on 13th Street!
We feel like we found a gem at Opa. We were seated immediately and the service was attentive throughout our diner. Both our appetizers and main courses were beautifully prepared and de;icious. We had a 6 PM reservation and had tickets for an 8 PM Show. We took our time, enjoyed our dining experience and had time to stoll to the theater. We're going back next Saturday to introduce Opa to our friends!

wines not great, but the palatable. The food, especially flatbread, calamari and don't miss the lamb shank if they have it as a special.

Very good food. Really excellent specialty cocktails! YUM! Insightful waitress. We were time constrained (tickets for a show), and she steered us through expertly. Terrific!

We had a great dinner appeasing
We had a great dinner appeasing both the meat-eating and vegetarian variety of diners. The zucchini chips were amazing as was the grilled octopus. Ask for a seat by the open windows to enjoy the best of the ambiance inside and the outside breeze!

First time and was wowed by the soup and salads. Fresh and tasty, and a nice size serving for the price. The Lamb Gyros were a bit of a dissapointment, not very savory, but all else was awesome. I would definitely return.

Food and service was outstanding
The food was fresh and the taste was outstanding. Angela, our server, was on top of thing and made the dining experience that much better. The price was reasonable as well. So over all , the food and service was outstanding with reasonable prices makes OPA a must go.

The rabbit was delicious and perfectly spices. The cocktails and wine are also new and refreshing. The service is great! It was a bit noisy but in our little nook it felt intimate.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and good service.
Good food and good service. We will definitely go back.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went with a friend and has three great meals. The waitress was excellent, and guided us thru the menu and even the best house wine. Nice design of restaurant area, a bit removed from the bar.
We will go back again and again. This was super!

Great little plates
This was our first visit and we liked it alot! We loved the mini Gyros! The mussels and octopus were also very good as well as the plate with hummus, eggplant, veggies and pita.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was amazing! I just ordered five appetizers and shared it with one other person and it was plenty of food. Our meal was incredible and everything coming out of the kitchen was amazing!
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Why I'll go back!
Unique and inspired cocktails and delicious, creative Greek meals that aren't too exotic for the typical American to thoroughly enjoy. The right sized portions to not feel too stuffed, so get dessert. Ambiance is cool, too, with a balance of a bright hue, wood, metal, and stone. Opa!

Pre-theater, so Opa was not
Pre-theater, so Opa was not crowded. Menu is interesting and food is very good. Portions are not big, so order a few appetizers for your table. We split the delicious chicken entree. That was enough before a show. The restaurant is very attractive.

OPA is a Favorite Among Diners
Ths is the second time I ate at OPA. Both times the food and service were excellent. I recommended the restaurant to everyone who asked me for places to eat while in Philly. And even to some who didn't ask. Thank you!!!

Good Casual Dining
We had four appetizers instead of a main; they were all delicious. The service is friendly and attentive. It's a busy, popular place, especially at the bar - all of which is fun to watch. There are a few tables outside, which are usually full. We've been there a couple of times when we've been in Philadelphia.

We had 3 couples go out for my wife's birthday. The atmosphere was great. The restaurant was decorated nicely and the staff was friendly and courteous. Our food was excellent. We ordered a vaiety of appetizers and they were all excellent. Our main course was just as good. I had the stuffed Tomato and Green Pepper and it was wonderful. I would fully endorse this restaurant.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
All of the food was excellent and very reasonably priced for the portions. The server did not have knowledge of the wine list and was non existent except when it was time to drop the check. The hostess did warn us that the dj starts playing at 11pm sharp. When the music started it was difficult to carry on a conversation, but it wasn't a surprise. We will just have to go earlier next time.

Lunch at OPA
Went to OPA for lunch after spending some time visitng the city. OPA had a great atmosphere, food portions were perfect, reasonably priced and really good. The server was wonderful, made it a point to appreciate our taste preferences and provided great recommendations.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I don't know whether this is a category but it well describes the interesting menu which is certainly Mediterranean while being more original than the standard "Greek Restaurant" food.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everyone loved their entree's. We had several appetizers that were also delicious. The whole Red Snapper was remarkable, mild white, flakey and flavorful. The pork loin special with sage oil was brilliant.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wanted to try something different before a concert. The place was pleasant and the food was very tasty. We had an appetizer to share that was delicious: pita, olives, and veggies with various dippings. The main courses were varied, but small. I had the quail. It was tiny, but delectable and the stuffing was full of nuts and veggies. My husband had roasted chicken breast with veggies. His had a decent portion. With small main course, we added the dessert. Desserts were sweet! YMMMY with lots of honey. Homemade ice cream too. Would go again!

This one of our favorite restaurant
This one of our favorite restaurant for pre/post theatre. Consistently good food, interesting beers and wine with fantastic service.

I went with a group of 4. We all ordered appetizers and shared. The pork skewers and grilled octopus were amazing. We each had a couple drinks, tipped the waite, and shared dessert and got out of there paying $36 a piece. Great food and reasonably priced.

Night to Remember
We had a great time, everything was great, will come back again but please bring your old menu back (some items we miss)!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went to opa for a friends birthday dinner. We were pleasantly surprised at how good the good was and when the bill came we were shocked how reasonable it was! The drinks are amazing.
