The restaurant did not actually serve breakfast until 7:00am so the guests chose another location.

Service was inattentive. Food was good, a bit too much dressing on my Niçoise salad.

I took my manager and 2 clients for a nice lunch last week. This place was a joke. When we walked in they just ignored us for 3 minutes while we just stood at the entrance. There where only a few people there. Our waitress was friendly. The food took a real long time for lunch and they new we were corp. and not tourists etc. When the food finally came there were only 3 plates out of four. My colleague just waited then finally the waitress said there was a problem with the order. My colleagues food finally came and she hardly ate only to tell me after the meat was raw and it was all bad. During the meal we kept having to waive over a service person for more water etc. I was not impressed with my Scallops dish. Only 4 scallops. Really? Last the check was $189 and the tax was about $16. They do not have a paper signing system and brought me over a tablet. It had a $205 total with a choice of 20% or higher. I could not change the total. They had me tip on the total plus tax which is wrong! I did not want to make a scene in front of our clients. I complained downstairs and the doorman said they are leaving in a month and Tao is coming. Not sure if this is public news? Could not be more happier. Screw you Opia!

Nothing special but convenient location for late lunch, early dinner with good salads and a moderate noise level that allows conversation.

I stayed at the Renaissance 57 hotel & Opia is the restaurant. This was my second meal during my stay - it was an enjoyable light dinner with a wonderful waiter.

Loved the Renaissance 57 Hotel which is where Opia is located. Food was great & surprised with a wonderful jazz band. The waitress was extremely disappointing - sat me next to where the band was setting up which was very disrupting to my dinner & to the band. In addition she embarresed me by saying my room number was declined & had to use a credit card. The hotel confirmed the next day this was not true. Overall a good experience minus the wait staff.

Was there for breakfast and it was half empty yet the service was agonizingly slow. Food was fine, but I think there are probably a lot of other places nearby that offer better value and service

La Cocina no es francesa, más bien es un snack bar de mala calidad. Como francés tienen: Camembert, pâté y una copa de Borgoña. Reservamos el día de Navidad a las 21:30 y a las 21:40 una señorita muy maleducada nos dijo que pidiéramos porque cerraban La Cocina. Mala atención y muy mal servicio, lastima equivocarnos de lugar pero pensábamos que estaría bien cenar en el Hotel.

So very over priced for breakfast even in NYC...$100 for 3 breakfasts...foolish. If I want to
Pay that, I'll go to the four seasons. Won't be back.

Opia offers a sophisticated environment without being snobbish. Great ambiance and music. The food is delicious, I recommend the Tuna Tartare. The service is on point. Great NYC spot.

Opia is always a pleasant surprise. Can be quiet and intimate or can be a buzz. On our most recent visit the layout was anew with comfortable banquets with views towards the windows (and if applicable a large screen tv) giving the dining room a very open feeling. The varieties of appetizers are fine, but we also like to start with one of their delicious pizzas with a first round of cocktails before moving on to appetizers and then main courses. The salads and sandwiches are very good as are the variety of entrees. On our most recent visit the staff was friendly and quite engaging. As this was a weekend night, live music began playing over the course of our dine which added to the pleasantry of the evening and carried us through our delicious dessert.

We really trust OPEN TABLE with their recomendations. Sadly Opia is not up to your standards. The food was bad, the place looks shabby, they have ONE distracted waiter whom we had to ask twice for our sticky table to be cleaned. AWFULL!!!

I had an enjoyable but unexceptional meal. I had escargot to start - served unconventionally in a garlic cream sauce with twice the number of snails out of their shell. It was in enjoyable if rich start to the meal. The hanger steak was nicely cooked but slightly too salted for my liking but still enjoyable. The staff were attentive and friendly.

Maitre'D Sam was quite attentive. He recommended the Tuna Tartar to start followed by the Sole Almondine. Both were delicious and well prepared. Dinner was accompanied by a 4 piece Jazz group in an attractive room. This was my fourth Saturday at Opia. The restaurant always has a musical group which, along with the kitchen and the setting, makes for an enjoyable evening! I'll be back for a fifth time.

My girlfriend and I were visiting New York for the weekend and wanted to have a romantic dinner. Opia was a great choice. The food was delicious and there were a lot of selections. The location is really central and there are balcony seats where you can watch the bustling streets from. The ambiance was very romantic and there was live jazz music. Our waitress was very friendly and on time.
