    Made reservations for lunch here weeks ago only to show up and there be a handwritten sign on the door saying that they weren't open. We're from out of town (actually, out if state) and there wasn't anything else open on Sunday in Independence so we had to drive 20 minutes to find something else to eat. If you're not going to be open, perhaps have the decency to call the people who made reservations with you so that they don't waste their time and gas only to be disappointed and hungry.

    This was our first time dining at Ophelia’s, and we will definitely be back. The menu was wonderful, many great selections. Our Server, Haley, was amazing! Very patient, attentive, and offered great advice for food selections. There was a woman playing the piano, and she played and sang beautifully, but at a volume that did not disturb our conversation. The ambience was perfect for a date night!

    We had corn fritters for an appetizer, oh my word they were delicious! My husband had fish and chips, I had the half-cut filet with mashed potatoes and broccolini. It was so amazingly delicious! There was a man playing music while we were there. I was concerned it would be too loud for conversation but it we were able to sit a few tables away and it was perfect! For dessert we ordered the lemon with French meringue. Again, superb and divine. This is a lovely gem in Independence, Mo!

    Always a great meal. I had the Berkshire Chop and it was devine, especially with the fried red potatos and my favorite Brussel's sprouts. It was enough for 2 meals which is always nice on leftovers day.

    Trip number 5 for us, and the food is always wonderful. Step out of your comfort zone and get something you might not have just to try the Chef's pairings. I will be shocked if you are disappointed.

    We’ve been to Ophelia’s Sunday brunch a few times and always enjoyed it. It had a mix of breakfast and lunch entrees and a large variety of desserts. Mother’s Day “brunch” was really a lunch buffet: salad, green beans, polenta, street corn, risotto, chicken, salmon, filets. Not what I’d call brunch. So why I was offered mimosas and coffee, and why they took 10:30 reservations is still confusing to me. We were offered a choice of 3 dessert items, and received warm cheesecake. Hugely disappointed & wish the menu would have been published in advance. We had no idea this was really not brunch.

    We’ve been fans of Ophelia’s for a long time ( even had my corporate retirement party there). Last night there was one waiter for all tables. They had just changed the menu, which, for the quality of the food, was way overpriced. We had wanted to use our points with the KC Originals program but were told they hadn’t done Originals for two years so that was a no go ( I should have checked before making plans). The hallway to the restroom smelled strongly of mildew which they said was the hvac system. This used to beIndependence’s finest restaurant. It was disheartening to see it go so far downhill.

    Traveling from out of town, we selected Ophelia’s because it had availability on a busy Saturday night. We were pleasantly surprised with how great the food and atmosphere was. As we entered the front door, we heard piano music, live, and were greeted by the friendly staff. The weekly menu offered a variety of fresh, incredible choices and we each found something delicious. My shrimp and grits were fresh, light and creamy, and my husband’s fried chicken was the best I’ve had anywhere. When we are back in the area, I will definitely go back. I highly recommend this restaurant!

    Our service person was the bar tender, hence not the attention we deserved. Felt that we were at the end of the day and just getting the job done. Not enough variety for the food and didn't like that there were NO EDITS as our bartender/service person said. Doubt we'll be back or refer anyone.

    Breakfast/brunch doesnt seem to be the best meal for Ophelias. The prime rib was excellent, as were the scalloped potatoes. The brussell sprouts were probably ok, but I am not a fan of them. However, the eggs benedict served my dining partner were just ok, they needed salt badly and were served barely lukewarm. The bloody mary's were overspiced, burning my stomach, and they had red pepper on the rim. Way too much spice. We had gone to Ophelias for Thanksgiving last year, and it was excellent. A brunch buffet might have been better perhaps also.

    Had a wonderful Easter lunch. I had the cherry glazed ham. It was delicious! Loved the scalloped potato side dish. My partner had the salmon. Another excellent choice. Then to top it off we had yummy profiteroles and a slice of key lime pie. The 2 piece combo just added to the ambiance to make a lovely Easter lunch.

    We went on a Wednesday and it wasn’t busy which was nice for us. Our waiter Steve was excellent. He was very attentive. The Lobster Mac and Cheese was very tasty along with the steaks. The bread pudding was outstanding and reminded me of the bread pudding that the Kobe House bakery use to make. Brought back a lot of fond memories. We will definitely be dining again during the week to avoid the crowds.

    Made a reservation during restaurant week to eat lunch on Monday here. Showed up, along with several other guests, to find the doors locked and the restaurant was closed. Drove 45min too. Please update your reservation hours on here so Mondays are not available if you are going to be closed on that day.
