Ophelia's on the Bay
Awesome view of the bay
The food and service was excellent. The lower marks are because we requested outdoor seating, then
were told by phone there was no outdoor seating available but that we would be at a window seat with
view, then when we arrived at restaurant were told there were no window seats and we were seated several tables away from window. We still had some view, but were disappointed with our treatment. Other than the seating issue, I would have given 4 and 5 stars.
We love everything about Ophelia’s!
Birthday! Nice that flutes of champagne were brought to table in honor of the celebrant. Waitstaff were outstanding!
Spectacular view of Intercoastal and elegant for outside dining. Excellent service and food. We Tok out of town friends there and they are foodies so the fish was important to them and did not disappoint.
enjoyed will go back again. Birthday celebration which they handle very well.
Seafood, wine and view is amazing. Usually dine outside by the water, but inside this visit and still a lovely view. Our server, Billy, was exceptional. He is also the wine buyer and was spot on with his wine (and food) recommendations.
Excellent restaurant overall. Great food (at least what we had), very good service, excellent view. We would highly recommend.
I would NOT recommend using Open Table because I asked for a waterside table for 2 and we were stuck up against the building as far as we could go without being inside.
IF you cannot fill the client's request, you should have told me.
It was a BAD START to a Special Night.
Next time I will Not Use Your Service but I will call the restaurant directly.
Although I like the location and food at Ophelia’s, the hostess’s reception left something to be desired. We arrived early for a 5:30 reservation and asked to be seated either by a window or outside. Although there was practically no one dining at that hour, I was told a full house was expected, and our party of four was instead seated by a mirror at the back of the restaurant. When I asked again, I received a frosty reception. This young woman needs to be aware that all diners should be treated cordially and politely.
Ophelia's on the bay has a wonderful menu. There is something for everyone in your group. The service is friendly and warm. The food is delicious! I had the red snapper and it was yummy. I also liked to be able to look out onto the water and see the Osprey nest with baby birds.
Everything was fabulous! Our waitress was exceptional! Autumn, was her name. Valets were busy!!
Awesome place! Escargot phenomenal and chimcurri steak and tuna killer!
Excellent lobster bisque! Solid entrees. It was a very enjoyable evening.
Thought it was good overall. Very busy. We had a room inside that wasn’t very crowded. Felt a little disconnected from most of the restaurant which is outside dining overlooking the bay.
Next time, if there is a next time I will ask for a table outside though so we feel connected to most of the other customers who are predominately outside.
Great service and outstanding meal.
Excellent food and service. Would recommend to anyone in the West Palm Beach area
A perfect evening dinner on the bay with my husband.
Overall, very disappointing...requested table on the water, got seated at the extreme end of the dock where a boat was allowed to come in, dock and completely take away our view of the water. Service was slow and poor...seated for a long time before waiter came, and when he did, he was not very cordial and didn't listen to our requests - disappearing for 15-20 minutes at a time. When food arrived it was "just ok"- not a lot of taste in either of our meals and certainly not worth the money! When overall bill came we were shocked - WAY overpriced. Our take on this restaurant is that it's a premier restaurant "wanna be". We will not be returning...
We always love Ophelia’s and try to save it as our special occasion restaurant. The setting on the water is beautiful and serene and the food is always amazing.
Doug was our very attentive server the other night and went out of his way to make my birthday a special one.
We likely won’t be able to wait for an occasion to go back!
Ophelia's is our "Go To" place for special occasions. We have yet to be disappointed. Food is always delicious and menu has a nice variety to choose from. Service is always top-notch. Happy Hour is fun too if you stop by from 5-6, as we usually do before dinner.
Great location, excellent food, good service. Our “go-to” place on Siesta Key.
LOVED it! The tuna was amazing! The filet was fantastic! We will be back, sooner versus later!
Absolutely the worst service we have had in any restaurant. Planned a nice romantic birthday dinner and it was anything but. The wait between salad and dinner was 40 minutes and food warm some cold. We finished bread while waiting and water as no one returned to see if we wanted another beverage. Hailed someone down to get our check so we could just get out of there. So much for birthday celebration. We used to come here several times a month. They said new management took over in November. What a shame. There are numerous other restaurants to choose from do yourself a favor and go there
Food was amazing. Scallops and Red Snapper were delicious. Mussels appetizer could have been an entree. Service was spotty. Needed another server on the floor. We were in no hurry but the table beside us left due to inattention.
Ophelia’s is a favorite. But service needed to be picked up a notch.
View from the deck was wonderful. The scallops recommended by the waiter were excellent! However, the duck breast was poor. Asked for it rare and it came medium to well and was quite chewy. The desert choice of key lime pie was another big disappointment. Also would not recommend pear martini. Service was slow. But we will return just knowing what not to order.
We have never had a bad meal at Ophelia's. The wait staff is wonderful and the ambiance is amazing if you sit outside by the water. We will return!
Customer isn’t right, apparently. Will never go back. Have never been treated so poorly by management.
Really nice neighborhood gem tucked away on the edge of the bay with a 180 degree view of all sorts of wildlife. Only thing better than the view are the food and the attentive staff. We had great seafood dishes cooked to perfection. Nice wine selection as well.
This was our third visit to Ophelia's. Each time seems better than the last. As east coast residence it is always on ae agenda to eat there when we vacation in Siesta Key. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
We have been to Ophelia’s twice and each time it has been a wonderful experience. We were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary and everyone made us feel so special. Our server was especially kind and wonderful. We love Ophelia’s!
Excellent meal, beautiful evening.
Excellent, especially for our wedding anniversary dinner. They were thoughtful with champagne and our server could not have been more helpful. It was our first time there, but definitely not our last.
Great food! Best steak in Southern Florida. Our third year anniversary, and our choice to spend our celebration at Ophelia’s On The Bay.
Our favorite spot for a special dining out night near Siesta Keys. Food is outstanding.
We had a great dinner on the patio and the ambiance and food were delicious. Our server was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations. Our only comment was that some sort of celebrity or VIP was seated next to us with his girlfriend shortly after we arrived and we felt the service and attention to us declined a bit. Would definitely recommend Ophelia's!
Emily waitress was spectacular. She was well trained and happy. View was spectacular and entree and dessert wonderful !!!
Although this was our first visit to Ophelia's, it won't be our last. We were fortunate to be seated at an outdoor table ( any table would be wonderful) with a fantastic view of the bay. How peaceful. We shared the mussels, followed by crab cakes and mahi mahi. They were difficult decisions since there are so many appealing dishes on the menu. Being a wine aficionado, I was impressed with the restaurant's wine list. We will definitely recommend Ophelia's on the Bay to our friends.
