My husband and I enjoyed our date night on a Saturday evening. The food was great. We have the Greek salad and both kebob types. Very flavorful and great. Fun place. But..
The service was terrible. We were seated close to bar and were served by bartender. He was too busy to care about our table honestly. He did not know the menu at all. Even when I ordered baklava for dessert, he didn’t know what it was.
He didn’t know what iced tea was.
I had to ask multiple times for things and we were not once checked on.
They cater more to large groups, as I saw servers always at those tables.
The vibe was great, but our server was super green and forgot most things we told her. I ordered a second drink twice and never got it. She seemed like we were inconveniencing her by ordering food. The place was a fun vibe and great for a birthday or family gathering, but not for a date night.
Food was either mediocre or not good, calamari was disgusting with hard parts in it. Server forgot stuff, didn't check on us and then just sat check down without a word.
Our server was amazing
We're so glad to hear that!
Calamari was bad and served with no sauce. Meat platter for two was not worth $58. Barely any rice and the portions were very small. The only good thing was the belly dancer.
Our calamari is only served with a red sauce upon request, as this is a more Italian way of serving the dish while we focus on Greek style dishes. We're sorry you felt the meat platter was not a good value. Hopefully you enjoyed our entertainment enough to give us another try!
Food was delicious and the entertainment was awesome!! Adults and kids had a great time!!
An amazing experience! Fantastic food!
This is our second time here !! We love the entire experience and wish we had something like this in our hometown. We tell EVERYONE to visit
The filet mignon wasn't good but the slow cooked lamb was amazing!!!
We're glad you enjoyed the lamb, which is of course one of our specialties! Our filet dish is popular as well, but we're disappointed it did meet your standards. We hope you'll come back again soon!
The food and the atmosphere at Taverna Opa are great. However, the service was one the worst restaurant experiences I’ve ever had. We made a reservation, arrived and were seated immediately. But, the hostess never said a word upon our arrival - no hello, no welcome to the restaurant, nothing. She looked at the restaurant’s reservation touch screen, gathered four menus, led us to our table, pointed at the table, set the menus down and left. The waitress was equally as bad. After taking our order, service was very slow and she got the drink order wrong. After our food was delivered, we saw her one more time very briefly and then she never came back to check on us. We had to ask to have the table cleared. The mute hostess appeared and cleared a couple of dishes from the table but said nothing, she did not ask us how the meal was or if we wanted desert. The waitress never returned to ask about the meal and if wanted desert. We indicated in the online reservation that this was a birthday meal and reminded the waitress of this and told the waitress whose birthday it was when we ordered. Two tables to the left of us each had birthdays and received a birthday desert and the floor show belly dancer performed while the restaurant staff sang happy birthday. But our family received nothing. The waitress forgot. We had to ask one of the staff who was clearing dishes from another table fir the check. This took a half hour for the waitress to do. When she brought the check, she didn’t bring a pen and we had to another person clearing a table for a pen. I was astounded at how good the food was and how equally bad the service was.
We're very sorry to see that the service effected your overall experience, even with enjoyable food! We will address this with our staff, as we want all of our guests to feel welcome from the very beginning of the experience at Taverna Opa. We do not provide complimentary items for birthdays, but your server definitely should have given you options to celebrate! If you would like to send a message with more information so we can identify the specific team members, we would appreciate it.
The best Birthday 🥳 ever I will totally recommend, John was the best sweet, fun and awesome server, food amazing
We're so glad you had a fun birthday with us! We hope to see you again soon.
The service was great. Everyone bet friendly. The food was really good. Our issue was that it felt like were nickeled and dimed on things. We ordered hummus and the server asked if we wanted pita. Um….how else are you going to eat it? We then ordered saganaki. It came but no additional pita. We asked and they said we’d have to be charged extra. Again, we agree because if we’d have known we would have rationed the pita from the hummus that apparently was extra too. Asked for extra tzatziki, there’s an extra charge. Now I know suppliers are charging higher prices, I get that. But change your menu prices to cover the cost! We had more $2 and $1 charges on our bill than the food and wine.
We're glad your food & service were both enjoyable! We will be addressing the pita bread charges with our staff, as certain items are supposed to come with pita bread automatically and we only charge for additional pita bread ordered. We do unfortunately have to charge for extra sides of things like tzatziki as this is a scratch made item, even down to the Greek yogurt. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and we hope you will come visit again soon!
we waited for our food about an hour. we saw other tables getting their food first than ours. The lady that was helping us was trying to get our food faster but it seemes like al helpers were engaging in some dancing show. we were so close to leave the place but we have driven far because my son wanted to celebrate his birthday here. we had great experiences in South Florida, I wil not be able to say the same about the Orlando location. after waiting so long they showed up with to orders and one was cold and the other three order had to wait....poor service overall.
Very over crowded- not sure how the fire marshal has not shut the place down.
Entrees did not come out together. We were 5 guests- 2 dinners came out very fast. One came out a while after, the last 2 came out well after the first 3 were finished.
Overall- a terrible experience.
We're sorry to see you had a terrible experience. We work closely with Orange County to ensure the safety of all of our guests and staff. We are a very popular, celebratory restaurant unlike any other in Orlando and our atmosphere is meant to be like a big family party. We're sorry if this was not what you expected.
Food was good. Service was good. The musics was just too loud during the shot song and dancing. You cannot have any sort of conversation.
This is a fun and great place to celebrate. Never put in your Mel and appetizers at the same time. We got our dinner before we got the appetizers.
Want to have fun? Want to eat delicious Greek food. Look no further. Will come back over and over again.
Birthday with family
Opa is always a fun time for the whole family! For reference we took our kids who are 9 and 6. The food and drink are really pretty good, considering your getting a show with dinner as well. The service wasn’t the greatest, and the noise level is very loud, but that’s to be expected with this venue. Thoroughly enjoyed the Greek Jalapeño cocktail, would definitely recommend.
Food and service was great. Energetic, lively, and overall great experience! My family enjoyed it.
I make a point to visit Opa every time I visit Orlando. The food is great, and the entertainment and energy level are amazing.
Our waitress Tyana was a dream. She made the night so much more lively. Her hospitality and kindness is impeccable! She’s such a great assets to Opa!!
Went for dinner with my three adult kids and oh my did we gave a great time. Our waiter was amazing and so attentive. The drinks were on point and the food was amazing and delicious. A must visit place with the family. If you don’t enjoy loud music playing while eating this us not the place fir you. We absolutely loved it!!!!
Loved it!!! Every time I come to Florida I eat here! The environment is so fun! The food never disappoints!
Music level made conversation at our table impossible
Don’t go for the food. It’s mostly pre-cooked and soggy by the time it hits your table. We tried about 8-10 items from the menu and not one was even slightly remarkable. Rather go for the entertainment value, assuming you enjoy watching waiters stand on the dining tables and pouring shots to the drunken patrons. The bright light is the belly dancer. She brings the party and energy to the place.
What an awful experience! Made a reservation yet upon arrival had to wait 25 minutes to be seated inside of the EMPTY dining room with no explanation. Have never had a hostess actually talk to other employees in front of me about making us wait and not caring!? We were the first table finally to be seated in the main dining area however after seeing that the 6-8 other tables who had been seated after us had been greeted, served drinks AND had food delivered to their tables.. it was time to go! Have never been so blatantly ignored by wait staff after being seated either, they should reevaluate their staff members!
A pleasant surprise! A real party center but with excellent food.
Food was great, and the entertainment was fun, too. The music was loud, so just be aware that it will be hard to hear your server and table mates, but it was definitely a wonderful experience.
We had a party of 14 and it was a great time! Food,service drinks all wonderful!
If you love Greek food and atmosphere, you will not be disappointed. Opa!!
A wonderful experience! The food, the drinks and the entertaining was fabulous!
Thank you, Flynn Family!
It was very nice. Great ambiance and music. Food and service was outstanding.
Thank you so much! We're happy you enjoyed the full experience at Taverna Opa!
The music was over 95 decibels for more than an hour. My Apple watch was alarming about it for most of the meal. We repeatedly requested the music to be turned down and it never dropped below 90 decibels. This is not a place if you want to keep your hearing or have any conversation. Instead of ceiling speakers throughout the restaurant, they simply blast two PA speakers in the front. Tragic, as most of the food is amazing.
We're glad you felt the food was amazing! Evenings (especially on weekends) are always a loud and celebratory atmosphere with many people requesting specific music and wanting to dance on the tables. Our restaurant is much quieter with only low house music for atmosphere during lunch and happy hour. We hope you'll consider coming again during one of the quieter times to enjoy some more food!
Very touristy, loud, and high energy place, which I was not expecting. But the food was very good and we had lots of fun.
We're glad you enjoyed the food and had fun despite being surprised by our atmosphere! Food and fun are of equal important to us, and we hope you'll visit again soon!
Absolutely terrible service. Took over an hour to receive our food, and when we finally did get it it was cold and/or not made as requested (i.e. without onions). One person in our group didn’t get her order until the rest of us were nearly finished eating. Never got drink refills, and had to wait 30 minutes for our checks, one of which was incorrect.
We're sorry to see your service was not up to our standards! We would never want your food to come out incorrectly or delayed, so we will definitely check in with our team to see where we can improve on getting dishes out. We hope you'll give us another try!
Exciting and fun glad we went and look forward to returning someday
We look forward to it as well, thank you!
Great times as always! Drinks could be better though, food is always on point!
Thank you for the feedback, Stella! We just launched an all new cocktail menu so hopefully your next visit will be much better in the drink department!
What a fun experience! This is not just a restaurant but a party! Awesome Greek food in a beautiful setting. The belly dancer and music adds so much fun to the entire experience. Definitely recommend!
Thank you so much! Our food is equally as important as our entertainment, so we're very glad you enjoyed both!
