Overall great experience, however the dish we ordered did not come with Tzatziki. We asked the waitress and we were told that, only after we already ordered it. The funny part is that we started with a side of Tzatziki so if I would’ve known that, I could’ve saved some for my dish! I was disappointed that the waitress didn’t just bring us some when we asked about it. She just said sorry and moved along. I would’ve paid for it !

I ordered the Greek Salad and the cucumbers were not fresh and tasted off. The tomatoes were flavorless and the salad was at least 1/3 sliced red onions. There were at most 3 kalamata olives. It was a complete disappointment. My daughter had the shrimp skewers and it turned out to be half shrimp and half scallops. The scallops were way overdone. This was her birthday lunch and it was very subpar. We usually like Opa’s so I don’t know what happened, new chefs or new management?

I had a moussaka, famous Greek dish.
Nowhere near what a moussaka should taste like, plus way too much salt.
This restaurant wax much better when it had the original Greek owner.
Tomatoe/cucumber salad was good, though it was not listed as such on the menu.

Briefly, not enough staff so waiter was nice but slow.
The lamb was cold, the rice so undercooked I didn't eat it, and my dining partner ordered a salad which never came.
It was so noisey, bad acoutics not overcrowded, we didn't converse.
Dismal experience though the waiter did comp us the one drink we ordered.
Very disappointing.

Seating is WAY too close to adjacent tables. Very busy for a Saturday night - but still the inattentive service was irritating. Our drinks took 20 mins to arrive, and it was over an hour for food (which was *great, btw) to arrive at our table (once they actually got the right orders to us.) It's not rocket science, folks. Get it together, Opa.

I haven’t been to OPA for a looong time, and I was expecting the same quality how it was before. But unfortunately it wasn’t. Everything was just so mediocre. The salad and the main dish, even the drinks. Only Greek about the salad was that they just added clunks of feta cheese on it and a huge mixed salad. Seafood gyro was very sad, and the lamp chop that was full of fat, on all 3 of them. Very disappointed. Ordered OPA sangria, couldn’t finish it ordered the OPAtini, which the first one was good. Ordered another one and they made it wrong. It’s not like they were bustling with table, only 5 I could count. Overall very disappointed, it could be just a quick lunch spot but even that there are lot more other better places around.

Overall, I am very satisfied with my recent meal at Opa! My friend and I split the Gyro Platter and Chicken Souvlaki. The chicken was good (very close to being dry and did not come with any sauce), the Gyro platter was EXCELLENT (we subbed lettuce for half of the pita bread and that was a good choice). It was a perfect amount of food for 2 people. My only complaint is that the souvlaki platters for the most part don't include a vegetable, we had to pay extra to sub brussel sprouts for rice. It would also be cool to be able to mix and match various skewers on one plate (IMO).

Beautiful restaurant, nice atmosphere, great food, friendly service!

One dish came cold in the middle, clearly reheated moussaka and we sent it back only for the dish to return 20 minutes later at a temperature that would melt rock.

No consideration for the fact I finished my meal while my wife waited.

Staff serving were great though and we tipped 20% because it wasn't their fault

Wait staff were very nice and hard working, however our appetizers and main courses didn’t arrive in the normal sequence. Some wait staff might have been new as they didn’t know what the food was being brought to our table. The flaming cheese dish is all theatrics and no substance with the hot cheese remaining burnt to the iron platter, leaving little to enjoy. Warmed under a broiler would produce a better product. Flavors otherwise were good and we’ll go back for another try

While service was great (we had Casey), we were disappointed with our “signature” dishes - Kokinisto Me Manestra (lamb) as it was on the bland side and Moussaka (lamb, beef, eggplant, potato). I love Moussaka and this one did not taste like nor have similar texture to the dozens of Moussakas I’ve had at other Greek restaurants. This one had zucchini in it; I did not notice any eggplant, one of the main ingredients of Moussaka and the reason I love Moussaka. Zucchini was not listed as an ingredient in their menu. So I was not expecting to taste crunchy zucchini. Also, the Moussaka was served lukewarm to cool, which I initially thought came from being served in a cold plate. I’m giving a 3 star overall, only because the service was great and it was my 1st time there. I may give Opa another chance to try their other dishes and may recommend others to try Opa doe that reason as well.

Great spot in the heart of downtown Walnut Creek, plenty of outdoor seating and even in doors they have all the large windows open.
Excellent spot for quality Greek eats at a price that doesn’t break the bank.
