An Alternate Approach to Dining:

The combination of great food and celebration created a new meaning for the concept of dining. Taverna Opa employs a different approach to energize and introduce the diner to a different dimension of entertainment. Previous dining norms are broken, spirits are lifted, with every single broken plate and every single napkin in the air. The marriage of traditional with modern is what Taverna Opa promotes as the most rapidly expanding concept in the United States.

    We are visitors to the US, food was amazing, we sat outside by the water, it was lovely! The restaurant does not have Wi-Fi, this was a big issue for us when we were trying to order an Uber to get back to our hotel! We had a lovely waiter who came to our rescue. He had to hotspot us so that we could order the Uber! He saved the evening, unfortunately with the stress of this, I did not get his name, but he knows who is , so a big thank you to you

    The food was delicious and most of the servers seemed kind and attentive. Our server (perhaps angered by my request for a replacement plate and napkin that were not already soiled) was surly, passive aggressive, and ignored us for most of the evening. For example: While other tables of diners who arrived after us were brought bread and hummus, and had their dinners ordered, prepared, and delivered, we continued to sit there with nothing. Again, the food was wonderful, but the service was so reprehensible that we will not return

    The food wasn’t like before. It was very greasy, the past too soft. The octopus was not cooked like before. The food quality was really bad.

    It was one of my favorite places until my last visit last night. The location is just awesome!!! But the food has definitely gone down and my friends and I were so disappointed : the grilled calamari I used to love were terrible: they were not grilled but way overcooked and cold, it was like eating rubber. The scallops and spinach were also overcooked and cold . The delicious pita they usually serve were switched to dry bad quality bread and the only pita they served with the sampler were burned and dry. The service was also not great (even though the staff was trying their best) , the service was long ! The dishes arrived in a weird order like we got the lemon potatoes first with nothing and got the rest of our order way later one by one. The sampler which is an appetizer arrived at the end of our dinner . Very disappointing experience and hopefully they will fix all these issues. Not sure I will go back until I hear the place is back to what it used to be.

    ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS PLACE! as someone who works in the greek restaurant industry in new york, taverna opa exceeded all my expectations. our server, Andonis, was so kind & attentive, & gave the best recommendations, 10/10 service. the atmosphere gives me off traditional greek taverna vibes & the food is absolutely phenomenal, the octupus was the best I ever had. definitely will be back next time i visit florida.

    Honestly the service was not great. We were talked out of ordering an appetizer as an entree because it wouldn't arrive with the rest of the meal. But that plate never arrived. Had to order a salad instead just to eat with the table. The rest of the food arrived at different times and wasn't correct. My party and I didn't feel like We got the service and quality food for the hefty price tag. This wasn't my first visit to Taverna Opa and typically I have had a relaxing enjoyable meal in the past. Unfortunately I am very dissatisfied and disappointed with my latest experience.

    We went on our last day of vacation and it was the best meal we had while in Florida. My husband and I took our 3 kiddos. We sat outside on the patio. I had the grilled chicken, our oldest had salmon, my husband and middle had the chicken souvlaki. Everyone loved their meals. They serve fresh hummus and bread first. My husband I and both had drinks. I had Aphrodite’s punch and it was amazing. Wonderful restaurant experience.

    We ate here twice and loved it the first time — great atmosphere, food amazing and a very attentive server. The second time, the service was not good and the octopus app wAs severely over cooked. Atmosphere and rest of the food, though it took a long time to get to the table, was very good.

    I needed to use the men’s toilet and was simply disgusted………. It was a horrific and primitive experience. There is NO excuse for such experience in a restaurant that has been in business for all these years…..Unacceptable and unforgivable.

    Absolutely great experience! Some reviewers wrote that it was too loud or chaotic. I disagree. If your looking for a quiet, reserved solemn dining experience perhaps look elsewhere but if your looking for a fantastic, fun, raucous evening with absolutely exceptional Greek food then make a reservation here. You won't regret it.

    To begin, I have never reviewed a restaurant before. I made the effort to create an account to tell my experiences. Even though the food took ages to get and order, it was excellent. Service was subpar and the Server we had could not care less about our table. A dinner in a moderately busy restaurant took 2.5 hours. One of our appetizers came 20 minutes after the first one was served. Then it took ANOTHER 30 minutes after our appetizers to order our entrees. After we received our dinner, we did not see our server for the rest of the night. He began waiting on other tables and would not check in our table to the point where our drinks were only refilled ONE time through our meal. After we were finished, we tried multiple times to flag our server to get our bill. In order to get our bill, I had to get out of my seat to request it at the servers station. We were perfectly polite with our server and therefore confused as to why we got this service. I left the restaurant upset about our experience. I worked as a waitress for years and I could not bring myself to not tip him but I really wanted to stiff him.

    The manager and hostesses were extremely kind and accommodating. When it started to rain, they quickly moved us inside. It was a lot of food, but delicious! Our waiter was not very attentive. He didn’t check on us much. However they were very busy and he did have multiple tables.

    Birthday celebration They did not provide any birthday compliments but that is fine. The restaurant, food and service was great. The place could stand a little update, especially the door entries and tables and chairs. Looks uncleaned initially. We will go back though.

    We came back this year bc the food was so amazing last year when we were here on vacation. This year the food was amazing but the service was terrible. We ate outside. It was a beautiful night. When the food finally arrived my husband did not get the meal he ordered. He ordered a shrimp dish, he got chicken. We told the person who brought the food, she took it away. Our waiter Ed’s never came and apologized just said she would check. I had completely finished my meal and my husbands still hadn’t come out. When it finally did he did say it was delicious. The waitress never apologized, didn’t take any money off the bill and we were there for 1.5 hours with Luke warm water. So disappointing.
