Owner was very involved with guests. Service was slow due to staff shortage. He was apologetic and gave us drinks on the house. We did understand.
Food was very good, served hot.
I would highly recommend Opa.

The food is amazing. Best Greek salad I’ve ever had. Chicken Gyro is excellent. Our waitress Christina was a lot of fun and the owner typically stops by tables during dining hours.

We have had great experiences and service at Opa before. This time, our server was not trained well enough. He was very kind and polite but did not know much about the menu. This was a challenge because the menu does not offer any descriptions of the meals and the fish (which comes alone without sides) is pricey. Explanations of how the menu works and their recommendations would be very helpful. Also not knowing Greek, we did not know what some menu items were and our server offered no help nor did he seek to go find out the answer. Again, nice guy, but not helpful.

The food was delicious as always. We had the pikilia spread and shrimp saganaki for apps. The lamb chop entrees had great flavor and were cooked very well. Service was a little slow/shaky which is to be expected with Covid and as our server was new, but she was super friendly and made a great drink recommendation of the butterfly lavender lemon drop. I got it without alcohol and it was so tasty and pretty! Overall, never have had a bad meal here!

Unfortunately, at the end of our meal the manager would not accept our open table dining reward. He immediately came over to the table and said, “is there a problem?”. He did not bother to greet us or ask how our food was (he finally did, at the end of our conversation). He became argumentative saying that open table gave us the gift card not him and I even tried to show him the instructions for the restaurant to process it on my phone through the open table app but he didn’t seem to understand. He was borderline yelling at me and to be honest it was embarrassing and felt quite belittling. After the way that he treated me it will definitely make me think twice about going here again in the future.

Another great night @ Opa! I highly recommend the Calamari, Grilled Octopus (Greek style), Beet salad, Opa Chips, Lamb Chops, & Greek meatballs. Also you can’t go wrong with the Butterfly Lavender Lemon drop cocktail. Finish off the meal with their Goloktomboureko. It won’t disappoint.

We started with appetizers and we ended up ordering quite a few because they all looked so good. After we ate the appetizers we had no room to order dinner. So we’re going to have to come back. The food was delicious,, service was excellent and I loved the drinks.

We had been dying to try this place and I was definitely disappointed. Our waitress was friendly but never wrote anything down. She therefore never brought the glass we had requested with our beer and never brought the second beer that we ordered.
The food was “ok”. The spanakopita apps were good but our gyros were not anything special. The entrees were about $10 per plate more than what else is around in West Chester. Perhaps I had my expectations too high.

Opa is always hopping and now we know why. The food is deliciously greek; the lemony skewered chicken in the souvlaki was tender and juicy; the plate was perfectly portioned and nicely complemented with condiments and veggies. The drinks were ample in size and unique; I had the rose sangria and couldn't be more pleased with it. Given this restaurants value, unique offerings in West Chester, quality of food and ambience - and of course, great customer service - make a reservation to enjoy this WC gem. Don't count on their being a walk-in - even with lots of seating, its popularity is obvious.
