We had a wonderful lunch. The patio (no indoor dining during Covid) was nice and shaded, although we did have some street noice. The service and food were great.

Decided to venture out to this spot and it turned out to be delicious. The service was also great! Nice little patio with a nice view. We will definitely be back for our weekly date.

We come every year the night before school starts. Our group is 4 families. This year due to COVID-19 our group each placed a reservation for 4 on the patio. We all were able to keep up our tradition. We had a wonderful server
Israle and he was very attentive and kept us all safe. Our dinners were especially good as it has been a long time dining out. Opa! Was wonderful! This is our 6th coming with our group.

Great service and food. A little too hot outside right now on the patio. Have to go back when it’s not so hot. Had the shrimp and scallop skewers.

I was celebrating a very successful swim season with my operations manager. I own a summer seasonal
business & we had an extremely successful swim season this year. We’re also celebrating successfully being in business for 40 years.

The service was outstanding! The food and the ambience were awesome! Our waiter was very attentive to our needs and kept checking in with us to make sure we were having a positive experience. I felt very cared for and highly enjoyed the experience! I recommend Opa!

Anthony, our server, was attentive and fun! He made our afternoon enjoyable and was friendly with our 4 year old. Food was great, patio is nice. It’s better when the courtyard fountain is running, but I expect that’s outside the restaurant’s control.

We dined at Opa!'s outside patio on a late Friday afternoon. Service was excellent, knowledgeable (I asked about the Greek wines which I was unfamiliar with) and attentive. Food was very good. Especially liked the appetizer which was a mixture of shrimp, calamari, onions and green beans lightly breaded and fried, served with a creamy slightly spicy dipping sauce. There was a protest march happening on the corner at the time we were dining so it was a little noisy. Even without the protest, the street is busy and heavily trafficked which kinda killed the relaxing ambiance a little but we were dining at a busy commute time so maybe if you go later its a bit quieter. Felt the value for the money was good.

Social distancing protocols were practiced and noticed onsite. Waiters wore masks and gloves. Tables were spaced comfortably away from other patrons and screened from the Public. We felt very comfortable and safe dining here.

They wouldn’t accept my reservation. Claimed to not know anything about it and then informed me that they were closing early because of a scheduled power outage on the street. Yet all the other restaurants remained open and were talking customers. We ended up eating at Flights instead.

They said that it was Open Tables fault that the hours were not correct.

First time restaurant dining since the lockdown in March.
Opa Willow Glen has spacious outdoor dining area that made it possible to eat AT a restaurant. We dined for lunch and while we made a reservation-there was no other diners at the time we arrived.

Service was a bit scattered but understandable as they are getting back into restaurant service.

The food was amazing -as always. The kitchen timing was a bit off- the appetizer and the entrees arriving at the same time after a LONG wait. But- we’ll be back.

Our first trip out to eat after the Shelter-in-Place order was delightful! We were so glad that Opa! had outdoor seating available for reservation, and we were greeted by the friendliest staff. Our food was great (except the rice, which was a bit stale -- go for the salad!), and the atmosphere was relaxed. Thank you, Opa!

Very popular restaurant. Dining early was a good thing as restaurant tables full by meal’s end. Great selection of Meze - zucchini chips were tasty. Moussaka was very good but I was hoping for more lamb in the meat sauce. Salmon with vegetables was cooked perfectly. No room for dessert as portions more than filling.
Service excellent and friendly.

We indicated on Open Table that it was my husband’s birthday and the occasion was not even acknowledged. Also the host didn’t want to give my kids an extra set of crayons when there was two children. I had to complain about this. The service was also slow for not being that busy at the time.

The server was rude and rushed us. We said we wanted to enjoy our appetizer before we ordered, she got snippy and irritated. She also forgot one of our drinks and claimed that we never ordered it!! She did get that to us pretty fast though. When we were ready to order she told us to wait a minute in a very rude tone. We got up and left. The assistant asked why we were leaving? He stated that this wasn’t the first time people left. The most surprising part is we found out that she’s the manager!!!

Worst service at any restaurant in many years. 30 mins passed with nobody checking in. Waitress came by and gave impersonal, terse apology for the delay and promised to fast track the drink order — two glasses of wine. 15 mins pass and nothing. It wasn’t even busy. She then comes and says one of the wines is out. Food comes much later. We ask for a little extra thing of tzatsiki. It was a small a tiny dollop — and we got charged for it. Won’t return. An exceptionally bad experience from beginning to end.

Oh, and it was Valentine’s Day and we were trying something new in the neighborhood. Won’t do that again.

Opa offers great food at a great value. Free feta fries when you check-in on Yelp. Best deal is the filet mignon skewers plate.

Terrible. I booked this for New Years Eve and will never return. This was a particularly special dinner because it was the 30th anniversary of dating my husband and it was supposed to be special. Anything but. I don’t know why they would ever let us book an 8:30 reservation if they were closing at 9. We arrived early at 8:20 and were being rushed to order and eave as soon as we arrived. We ordered appetizers and martinis, were never even asked if we wanted an entree and were asked if we wanted dessert because the kitchen was closing In five minutes. The bar closed at 8:45, well before closing. We did say we wanted dessert and they really wanted us to take it to go. At this point, I told them we would eat it there just to make them stay. I am so intensely mad at this place that I will never dine at this Opa or any other again.

We had a team reunion at Opa! Opa! is a great place for larger groups to have a nice, uncrowded table and a pleasant atmosphere. I would give higher ratings, but the service and food delivery were "challenging" during our dinner. One order was messed up and was delivered late - long after other diners received their meals. To be fair, the staff & management tried to make amends with some extra drinks but this "colored" the evening. Also, I note that prices have gone up. Entree prices are now on par with much more pricey restaurants in the area making Opa! less competitive given their menu - other places in WG are now a better value.
