We have been here several times. It is such a fun place to have dinner. The food is good although I do like the food at some other Greek restaurants better. The servers are friendly and accommodating. The best part is that you can dance on the tables with friends. They have live belly dancers and the music is loud. It is a great place to laugh and people watch. It would be fun for a date night and it is also fun with family and friends or for special occasions.

 (Miami)·Dined on October 28, 2017

This is usually a great place to have fun. We came several times.
This last one was somehow disappointing.
The food quality was nos as good as usual, the waiter was not very interested in service.
They used to bring fresh hummus, which we requested but never got, had to ask for water, for glasses for the drinks, etc.
The party atmosphere is great. We love that you can dance, party, etc.
Warning: if you are looking for a quiet place to have a conversation this is not your place.

I love this place! The food, drinks, energy, and overall experience are fantastic! The service is amazing and it's so much fun when the belly dancers are teaching everyone how to belly dance!

 (Chicago)·Dined on October 15, 2017

Taverna Opa was selected because of its menu variety. The food was good but the entire experience was marred by the exceptionally loud music.

When we arrived, we noted the loud music, and made our concerns known to the manager, who stated there was a side room that was quieter. It was, when we sat down, but soon the music was cranked up....it was so loud, that you could not talk to the person next to you. We made several requests about the loudness of the music, and momentarily it would be turned down, at least from deafening, only to return to previous levels.

It was so loud, that when taking our order, the waitress did not hear my appetizer order.

Abdolutely cannot recommend this restaurant.

I came for my birthday, I was very disappointed. I asked for the belly dancer to bring the cake with sparkler and the staff knew I asked for that, waited 30 mins was very patient. Then the waiter comes out of no where with a sparkler and cake and wishes me. My whole table waited for the belly dancer, ruined my special night.

This was my third time dining at Taverna Opa. I've had a great experience every time. Very fun, love the napkins and the table dancing and the belly dancers. My only complain this time was with my vegetable side served with my PERFECT filet. The green beans looked like canned beans and they were slathered in some kind of tomato purée. Not a good choice, but the steak was perfect, so I can't complain too much.

The music level was above energetic so it really depends what you're looking for if you're looking for a place that is very loud with good food and great service this is the place for you. I had the lamb chops they were excellent. Our waitress could not have been more attentive. Even though there were a number of large groups we got our food in a reasonable amount of time.

Started with asking for opa fries for $6 comes out with a small plate with handful of fries on it and drizzled with oregano and pinch of cheese on top.
Asked waiter questions about menu and give you short answer and then say you don't want that you should get this. Waiter Very pushy so didn't like service #1 and 2nd wasn't ready to order other plates and be disappointed as well so we decided to get check and leave. Got dinner somewhere else.
If I ask for suggestions on menu then say what you like, I know what I like and interested in so that's why I asked you about.
Fries are just basic simple if you want to charge $6 for it you have to do more to them it's nothing like any other opa fries I've had

Our reservation was really not needed for a 5:00 dining, but as we were leaving the restaurant was filling up fast. Our waiter was awesome and he made some really good suggestions. The food here is the most authentic Greek food that I have eaten in the United States. I have been there before but later in the evening and I found the noise level not suitable for a conversation but very enjoyable for entertainment. I would definitely return again in the near future.
