We expected the old Opa but it was really the vibe of the Drury beer garden. It should stick with being one thing because the menu that opa used to be is so different and more of a bar experience.

This is not the Opa it used to be or what we were expecting. It is basically a bar now and not a restaurant anymore so only expect small portions/bar food, not meals. The positive was that the service was great, everyone was very nice.

Good food and vine . The only concern is if it is covid safe. It is advised outside that only fully vaccinated persons can enter but at the entrance nobody ask you proof of vaccination or even ask if you are vaccinated. The pub is crowded so is someone is Covid ill it is a mess.

I’m a bit visages but I LOVED Opa before. Now it’s a blend of Beer garden and Greek but as someone who loved it before I sort of prefer the Greek aspect. There aren’t a ton of options But the food is good! And there’s definitely a lot of beer. Happy hour is fantastic!! So maybe come here.m for drinks and go somewhere else for dinner. Also tHe saganaki is my favorite dish ever; I mean who doesn’t love melted cheese eaten out of a cast iron skillet?? Just the main courses leave a bit to be desired but it was still a good experience!!

We chose Opa as a birthday dinner location. We visited on a Sunday evening around 6:30. We found the atmosphere very inviting, the server was attentive and the food was great.

There ere 6 of us and we ate both off the happy hour menu and the real menu. Everything was delicious. It wasn't noisy and the wine was great. This is my fourth time back to Opa. You can always count on the food to be delicious.

We visited Opa during Happy Hour, a time to sample Greek ouzo and enjoy a sampling of small plates. The service was excellent and the food was delightful.

They've changed their menu and by the quality of food - I think the chef as well. The Siko drink was good and spinach croquettes but that's about it. The meatball appetizer which we've had before was small and dried out. The oregano fries were soggy, salty, and not fresh. The chicken gyros arrived with undercooked chicken and with only 3 tiny strips in a big pita. We ended up sending the gyros back and left. We didn't trust it after getting undercooked food and lackluster appetizers. Went to Lolita around the corner - it was fantastic. Skip this place!

We made a last minute reservation, and because it was Valentine's Day weekend, our usual places did not have any openings. So, we took a chance, and it was amazing! From the cheeseboard and meatballs to start, to gyros, pies and the seafood special, to the mini donuts for dessert, everything was delicious and perfect for sharing. Plus it was a great space, with a full bar crowd, but we could still carry on a conversation easily. We will be back!

That was such a fantastic meal! Opa made Valentine’s Day perfect. We’re already planning our next visit. The food was absolutely amazing, we actually had to stop ourselves to make room for the next course. Our waitress was so sweet and knowledgeable it really made for great night. Thank you!

Went for Valentine’s Day and ordered off of the preset menu. All of the appetizers were great but the main course was pretty awful. I had ordered the surf and turf with a rare steak. When it came to me, the steak was medium well (almost fully well done) and it came with just 2 shrimp. I ate one of the shrimp and it was so salty, I couldn’t eat the other. I ended up eating off of my husbands plate (he had some sort of seafood rice dish which was great). All in all, may go back for drinks and apps but wouldn’t go back for dinner.

Unfortunately we got off to a bad start. Open Table somehow botched our reservation. My Open Table account confirmed that I did indeed have a reservation, but the hostess did not have any record of it. The hostess told us there was nothing she could do. We finally called the manager and the manager corrected the situation and offered us free cocktails to apologize. We had a lovely meal and the service was excellent. We will definitely return.

Service was mediocre. I feel like at one point our server, although very nice, forgot about us.. I ordered the pork belly gyro and the “pork belly” was so thin it was basically burnt bacon....

Everything was great until we saw our bill. Our server took our order and asked if we wanted side salads or fries with each order — thinking it was included as part of your meal. It’s not. $40 extra later, plus a $11 kale salad that was forgotten about but still charged for. Food was great, but poor customer service.

We celebrate restaurant week every season and we attempt to dine at a new restaurant each time. We decided to try Opa because we’ve been to the various steakhouses and Brazilian restaurants many times. Opa was an opportunity for us to try different foods while still playing it safe. Although the place was crowded and busy, we were seated after about 8-10mins. Our server, Brenda, was very nice and accommodating. She took our picture and gave us a voucher for parking. All of our food courses were delivered to the table in a timely manner and the server promptly cleared the table for the next course. The roasted chicken was delicious and a decent sized portion. The lamb and orzo, mushroom entree, and dorado entrees were fairly small. The ambiance was nice, noise level was moderate for such a busy night, and the restaurant was clean; including the bathroom. Overall, our dining experience was satisfactory and we are likely to return.

Great time with the exception of an incredibly loud group of 4 nearby. Obviously not Opa’s doing, but it took away from a great meal. “B” was a great server.

We have been at Opa before but this meal was the best. Started with a smooth Greek white wine which nicely complemented our dishes. We started with the fava hummus, tzadiki and pita. Our wives had to move fast because the guys were demolishing the food.The octopus was cooked to perfection. We had a nice crunchy grilled okra as a side. We then had chicken and shrimp gyros. Service was good. A lively place.
. So good. We went to the theater afterwards. It was hard not to take a contented nap after such a great meal.

Great food, friendly staff, but service slow and they forgot 2 of our appetizers....but gave us free dessert and coffee due to their mistake. Food good enough and wait staff friendly and apologetic enough that I would go back. Chicken was OUTSTANDING!

I liked the atmosphere, it did have a Bar that took up a lot of room, and the noise level was low.
I had the 3 different types of pita, spinach/feta, butter nut squash and cheese. A nice grouping of tastes. I did share some with my dining companion, as it was quite filling. It could have been shared between two people. We sat near the window and watched people go by.

Too few servers. Food was meh. Have eaten all of the dishes ordered before in other restaurants in the US and in Greece. The food was really unimpressive. MAYbe the pita was house made. The chicken skewers definitely were served with a 'sauce' that was comprised of just mustard and ketchup mixed together. Kalamari we were well prepared, but the aioli with kalamari, while a good texture, did not have any discernable garlic. Shrimp skewer was good. Greek salad was ok. Melitzanosalata was better than the other food, but that was it. Olives were fine. Servers were perfectly nice, just too hard to get attention of one.
