We visited Orlando from Boston and decided to have dinner at OPA . Being of Greek heritage myself I was looking forward to the experience. The staff was great, accommodating and very helpful. The managers made sure that they visited our table and introduced themselves . The atmosphere was friendly, happy and everyone from old to young was having fun. The food was authentic and very tasteful. The mere plate was very tasteful. The grape leaves need some work ( not like my mother’s) but there was plenty of food and we took leftovers for lunch and dinner the next day. I strongly recommend it .

We had a reservation, but showed up with more people than expected. It was not too busy and they were able to seat us right away. We sat outside and they lowered some shades so the sun didn’t blind us. The server was very friendly and helpful. Outside the volume was very mild and the belly dancer is not visible. She did walk by the tables outside, but we could not see nor hear her performance.

The food was very good. We especially liked the hummus made tableside. The food took a little while to come out, but the server checked on us and brought the food out as soon as she could.

My friends and I went for our annual birthday dinner.
The food was amazing, I had the lamb chops and I am still dreaming about them. The atmosphere is so fun and the music is great. The only downside is that it’s very loud so it’s hard to hold a conversation.

*Big thanks to our server, "Easy," (sp ?) She was excellent and appeared to have everything in check & under control while waiting on/serving our party of 20+ people celebrating our daughter's sweet 16 birthday party, (4/13/2018) She was the best! So sadly, we have all become accustomed to having either bad service, bad food, or worse yet- both, while going out for a nice dinner, *especially with a large party. She thoroughly impressed us all with her welcoming personality and attentiveness to all of our guests- and never once had to wait/ask for anything... Very impressed! Opa's got a good one in her- don't let her go. Our sincere thanks, especially to "Easy." On behalf of me and my family, I can only hope you might forward this on to her and her Supervisors/Staff as an example of "excellent/quality service." Greatly appreciated...

Respectfully,
Bill Harbilas- Orlando, Fl.

Lamb was horrible and they didn’t offer to compensate or exhange it. And don’t order their birthday cake. Fun to watch belly dancing.

Opa has gotten too commercialized and the quality of the food has gone way down. 4 of 5 of us got sick. The eggplant and roe were not tasty. The octopus was over cooked.
Try another Greek Resturant but the atmosphere was great!

Dined with a group of 6 over Spring Break.
I made our reservation based on the menu but were pleasantly surprised that our experience turned out to be much more than what we expected.
The belly dancer, energetic music and flying napkins made this an entertaining and delicious dinner for our group ranging in age from 8-65.

Wonderful food, service, and ambience. It was a uncomfortably warm, however,.
Also, the child in our group is noise sensitive and had to be taken out before the rest of the group finished. Something to be aware of if your child is sensitive.

Not worth making reservations if party is not going to be seated on time. Waited for 30 minutes to be seated. Food is good but not worth the wait. If you like a restaurant with a club atmosphere then this place is for you.

Recommended by our Uber driver and it was a great find! Service was terrific and the food was amazing! Best Greek food I've had. We sat outside which was good because there was a belly dancer (Friday night) so it was pretty loud inside. It was really fun to watch her dance and pull people up on the table to dance with her. Great atmosphere!

I absolutely loved my time at Taverna Opa. It was my 25th Birthday celebration and the staff made sure I had an awesome dinner/party. The food was delicious and the entertainment was amazing and on point. It was like a mini dance club inside the restaurant because of the awesome music they were playing too. Everyone was dancing left to right and so was I (on the table!), but it also maintained a great place to eat with my group of friends. I would definitely come back again it was a great experience. Final note..Napkins everywhere! it was lit.

Not too friendly restaurant, we arrive and had to wait for 10 mins before we can be seated even though I had a reservation. Was not greeted well. When seated we were given pita bread with chick peas not even enough for 7 of us , I order a second one and told I have to pay which I ended up pay for. The sangria was awesome, some of the meals were good but the slow cook lamb was wayyyyy too fatty. The lamb had more fat than meat, the meal was over priced. Lamb chops was great, the lamb burger was alright the roll was hard the meat was dry doesn't even taste like lamb. Over all I give you a 2 star. Thanks
