At Opah Restaurant & Bar, we serve the finest fresh fish in Orange County. Carefully hand selected each day to deliver the best quality available. Come in and enjoy the menu created by Marc A. Cohen, One of the Best Chef's in Orange County. The menu is exquisite, featuring edible works of art, that look so good the could be on a magazine cover. Dont forget to try one of our signature Award Winning Martinis, or have some wine outside near the fireplace on the patio. We offer live music for our patrons on certain nights as well to add to the dining experience. If you wondering how we came up with the name Opah. It comes from the Hawaiian word for Moonfish, which was once viewed as Good Luck by fisherman, & often given away as a gesture of Good Will.

Our waiter, Shawn, was superb with descriptions and recommendations. The manager truly was a credit to this great great restaurant. He was professional and helpful when our reservation could not be found. We sat at a nice table, enjoyed fine meals with our friends, one of whom celebrated her birthday 🎂. A delightful evening. Can’t wait to return. Hooray and cudos.

Excellent food, excellent service!
Must have asked us 6 times how everything was, the manager even came to see how happy we were. Not sure if I was getting special treatment due to using OpenTable, or they are always that way. Definitely will go again.

Get New Harbor Sauv. Blanc back on the wine menu. Not sure why they took it off

Here from Colorado, we felt welcome from the front door. Food was pleasingly different, Very Fresh. Server Corinne was delightful, attentive, not overbearing. Wish we hadn't felt chilly - ample patio looked inviting. Couldn't find a handicapped parking space, so walk was a little daunting after dark but a nice neighborhood. The side salad was unique and my husbands short rib +mashies was tender and very filling. We would definitely recommend Opah.

The food was outstanding, the service excellent and I am looking forward to going again and again. If you love seafood, be sure to try the ciopinno, which surely is the best I’ve ever had. The coconut butter cake is out of this world.

This used to be a favorite of ours before Soka events but the last two meals have disappointed even though the service was excellent. Both of us got fish & requested the fish cooked moist but it was dried out as were the potatoes. The dessert menu was not tempting but we shared a key lime pie with a weird meringue which came off of the lime part & could not be dislodged from my fork. The server did not charge us. My espresso was delicious. They say the menu is changing . Sure hope the quality of the preparation will improve as a result.

My husband had Halibut Fish-n-chips that was excellent. I had the mussels very good, there were not over cooked but very rich. I ordered the mussels off the happy hour menu— no difference from the dinner but saved $8.00. The service has always excellent, attentive, caring. The whole experience is what brings us back.
