Ophelia's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We have been here dozens of times over the past few years; the kitchen was off this visit. The Chateaubriand was quite good. The seasonal risotto was runny and flavorless. The veggies were over cooked and mushy. The salads were lovely. The server forgot our appetizer. We chose not to bring this to his attention as he was in training and did a terrific job, other than that. The manager was friendly and quite pleasant when delivering our bottle of wine. We chose not to stay for dessert.
Searching for a great sunday brunch spot....well......maybe not exactly! Food was "good" though the breakfast hash brown were not brown, just gummy! Great selection of foods though, nice sweets collection. I think the wait staff were short handed due to the icey weather though. While VERY polite and informative they were stetched pretty thin.
We've been coming to Ophelia's for a decade and will keep checking in.
I eat here with friends frequently and love the food and service. Thus time it was lunch but dinners are extra special with the quiet atmosphere and sometimes live music. One of the best restaurants for every occasion or everyday. They have a private room too. Highly recommend.
Met my girlfriend for our bi-monthly "catch-up". We come to Ophelia's frequently as it is nicely located between my house on the south of the metro and her north metro location. The food is always excellent - we've had about everyting on the menu. Looking forward to their new menu coming out this spring. Check it out!
Would have been nice to know that they don’t participate in Restaurant Week (as if they McClains can’t afford it) on Sunday for brunch! We went ahead a tried it anyway and if you don’t get there by noon don’t expect the Prime Rib or several other things to still be offered and they don’t replenish! For what was available at 1pm on the buffet I could have stayed closer to home and give to Golden Corral or Cracker Barrel and spent less money. Nice place though and the service was great just several other disappointing elements (cleanliness was an issue as well...the long hallway to the bathroom was filthy!) I will make a donation to KC Community Gardens directly since we were not able to today.
Not impressed. My order said roasted grape tomatoes and green beans. I got one small grape tpmato and count them, 4 green beans. The gelato was literally 1 tablespoon. The chicken and apple pie was too dried out to eat
Thank goodness the mixed salad was good. So disappointed.
We were pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the restaurant and the quality of the food and service. Very helpful professional. We tried it for restaurant week and we will definitely go back. I had the best Brussel sprouts appetizer I have every had. I had the chicken mufaletta sandwich and it was wonderful. I guess since it was in the older downtown area of Independence I thought it would not be as nice as it was. That will teach me to judge!
My husband and I went to Ophelia's during KC Restaurant Week for a birthday dinner. It was our first time dining there and we were not disappointed! The food was amazing from start to finish. The restaurant was clean, the staff was so friendly and professional, and the ambiance for a romantic birthday dinner was perfect. Definitely a great place to celebrate a special occasion!
We like that the menu is updated with new offerings. The lobster dip appetizer was very good with ample amount of lobster chucks in it. Keeping with a seafood theme I also had the new crab gnocchi small plate - lots of flavor and good portion for a “small plate”.
As usual, we had a GREAT time at Ophelia's! Food & service, EXCELLENT! All staff very polite, efficient & friendly. Katie, our server . . . WONDERFUL. Will, bartender/mgr. also fun & efficient. Thanks for a wonderful dinner & evening. Live music (piano & bass) great too. [Stayed the night at the B&B . . .also, great. Thanks to all . . .
Enjoyed Sunday brunch as a pre-holiday get together with a friend. Very enjoyable! Tho our waitress was quite busy. We never felt ignored & used plates were removed while we were @ buffet for next course, enjoyed some time honored staple breakfast offerings and others unexpected. Felt like it offered healthy alternatives to normal breakfast/brunch fare...we’ll return!
A friend and I were in Kansas City for a concert and were looking for a meal before going to the concert. I checked Open Table and found Ophelia's. The menu looked intriguing and they had an opening at the time we needed. The restaurant is cozy and the food was fabulous. They had 2 different parties in their private rooms and were still able to serve our food in a timely manner. Our server was attentive and answered all of our questions. A guitarist was playing Christmas music which was a bonus. I would return to Ophelia's in a heartbeat. It was a wonderful discovery. I would highly recommend trying it.
