Taverna Opa - Delray Beach
Lightly fried served with lemon
Crispy fried grated zucchini, mint, dill & goat cheese topped with roasted pepper garlic
Enjoy $6 food menu at the bar and reduced priced drinks at the bar and dining tables everyday until 7pm
Calamari was excellent & my Greek salad was very tasty. Getting refills took a while. The biggest complaint I have is the lack of staff wearing masks during the pandemic.
Great food and drinks. Loved eating outside
Food was great
Great food. Great service. Lovely area. Highly recommended.
Really lovely food, but geez...what's with the extremely loud music? We couldn't even hear the waiter. This is a nice restaurant that is ruined by management preferring to run a noisy bar, complete with a bartender standing on the bar to deliver a shot to a young drunk. Shameful.
I have fond memories of Taverna Opa in Hollywood. It made this visit to Delray that much more disappointing.
The front desk lady is rude - not the best first impression.
It was loud. We had to move away from the bar to even hear ourselves think much less have a conversation.
The waiter was good. The food server never knew what table got what food - really annoying.
The potatoes were cold. The scallops were puny and over done - inedible. The best food was what wasn't "cooked" - the tziziki, hummus and pita. The fried calamari was stellar, too.
We won't be back. Sorry.
All in all very enjoyable experience.
Our waiter was completely missing for an hour and my filleted branzino came out as a whole fish. I opted to eat it bones and all after trying to find waiter for 10 minutes.
Def bad experience.
Service was terrible. I typically don’t write reviews but the service was extremely slow and it was not booked. Food was ok, I guess. We would NOT recommend.
Great food very reasonably priced - a true bargain in the heart of downtown Delray
The restaurant was overbooked for the time of our reservation and we were kept waiting for about 30 minutes. The hostess blamed the problem on Open Table saying that Open Table did not remove unavailable time slots. As an avid Open Table user I knew that was in accurate and as did two other customers whose reservations were also not honored. The food is quite good but they have lost a customer due to their inability to manage their seatings.
We sat outside in the corner. It was quiet enough and our server Jeannine was sweet.
Excellent food and service!! This was our 4 th time back. We are Greek and live in New York So we know quality when we see it Every time we visit Florida we go to Opa taverna
Food was delicious. It was located very well. Only negative is that it it’s hard to find parking.
Great night of Greek food. Will return.
Asked for outside table for 6, got a call in the afternoon to confirm our reservation and outside table. when we arrived (early dinner 5:30) many open tables no need for reservation but hostess just sat a party of 3 down on a large outside table and had no other large outside tables. I told her if our confirmation and reservation and she wouldn’t move tables together or ask the party if 3 to move to a smaller table and would only give e us an inside seat. Horrible way to start a dinner.
Good was fair. Better Greek food at other restaurants
We enjoyed the food but hated the very loud noise. The tables were crowded together, so waiters had to go out of their way to serve. The hummus was served as partially mashed chickpeas that we had to finish with a supplied mortar and pestle, but that didn’t work out well. The lamb was very tasty, but not among the best we have eaten. The gyro meat was especially tasty and the pita breads were very well cooked. The service was pleasant and ok, but not outstanding. The credit card system went out for s long time, facing me with a $170 bill to pay and struggling to find cash for that, and the restaurant would not help out. The card system ultimately came back. Particularly galling was the credit card bill that tacked on a 20% tip charge without any warning. I was not aware that the facility charged 20% for larger parties (we were 6)- I saw no notice of this, and the credit card bill did not even state this. The first bill we received, to pay cash, did not impose this charge and left the space for the tip at our discretion. I’m not sure I will revisit.
Food good. Waiter slow with each course. Never brought ordered Pita, either.
We waited 40 minutes for a reservation for 13 (one with a walker, one with a cane)people. The hostess giggled every time she was asked how much longer. No silverware on the table, took a half hr more to take orders, appetizers came after entrees and when asked about it the waitress said something like “when the kitchen is busy we just bring everything at once”, dirty dishes were never cleared, some food came out cold. Dishes came out one at a time. Manager was totally unapologetic. When the waitress brought over the check (close to $400) she said “we took off 50%.” In actuality she took off $50.
The lamb chops and pork chop are excellent. So is the pita bread they put out. It was still happy hour, so we had $6 martinis. Definitely will be back.
Whenever I come to the area it always try to visit this restaurant. Love their hummus - FREE and delicious! Love their Branzino which I order whole..not filet. The place is casual, lively and fun. Sitting outside affords you a great view of the downtown “scene” in Delray. The service, though friendly, is spotty and I often have to ask for things several times that should be standard...like when the hummus arrives but there are no set ups Leaving you staring hungrily at the food with no way to eat it...if you can look past that then you will surely enjoy.
We came here on Valentine’s Day and we were pleasantly surprised that being so crowded and buy we wouldn’t have as a good an experience. The food , service etc was excellent ! I strongly suggest you get one of the family style dinners! Such good value and there is something for everyone! Will certainly be back!!
Delicious, large plates and very friendly service!
1/2 chicken- plain- no Flavor-
Great food. Very fresh and delicious. Attentive service.
We went on a Sunday evening and were disappointed to hear that so many entrees were not available. Three of our party of six ordered grouper which they could barely eat, based on the taste and texture. The lemon potatoes were tasty. One ordered lamb chops and had to ask what a small burnt piece of inedible meat was. Our server was wonderful and attentive, and replaced the chop with a fresh one. Sadly, there will not be a repeat visit to this restaurant.
Table was not ready when we arrived, hostess had an open table that she was going to give us but a couple ahead of us came over and had to remind her that they were still waiting. There was confusion and no system. We ended up going to this back room that was less than a restaurant and more like a storage area. Wouldn’t go back.
Loved happy hour and we sat outside and split apps like mousaka and spinach pies and meatballs and grape leaves and flaming cheese! The fish is not all flleted like branzino so ask ahead!!!
Reason for low rating. Brought the main course before tee appetizers. My lamb chops were tough and over cooked.
Great Happy Hour menu and drinks. Met friends from CT there. Lots of fun! Entertaining Belly Dancer.
Food was very good. I recommend the Lemon Chicken and the chocolate cheesecak.
Good food. Awful service.
Everything was excellent
The food was good. My husband ordered a dish but ask about another one. The server gave him the other one, which was something he shouldn’t eat. Unfortunately the server wouldn’t take it back.
Music to loud
Service not on
Food lacking quality and disappointing to say the least.
They were off their game this week.
We are regulars and this was a disappointing experience
Server not that attentive but all else was goid
Loud LOUD!! Poor service. Bait and switch wine list. Terrible wine selection. Took forever to get food served. So many choices on the same street. Don’t pick this one!
We asked for a bottom of Prosecco at $38, ( only 1 on wine lis) they didn’t have or any splits or even glasses.
When he suggested Champagne at a higher price I said you should charge us $38 as Prosecco was, Manager said no and we left,
Very authentic Greek food. Everything was delicious. Opa!
Waitress completely lost...food took extremely long...disappointing.
Service here is fair at best.
Food was just ok.
