Fun
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.

Took us forever to get checked in...must have been invisible. Finally had to get a waitress to acknowledge us. Never had so many people walk by and try to avoid eye contact.

no me gusto la comida, ma sobre todo el gran ruido y la musica a un volume imposible altisimo, creo que tenendo dos salas ellos pudiera tener una sala sin musica y la mas grande con musica al volume alto, fue imposible comer y salimos con dolor de cabezas.....

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone! The food was so amazing i’d come back and vacation in Hollywood just to eat there again. I wish we could remember our servers name because we was very pleasant and I would like to give him credit. THIS PLACE IS A MUST. Get the spicy feta spread to start, Greek “lasagna” and don’t leave with out baclava.

Very delicious food, staff was friendly and inviting. It is very loud, so if you're looking for a quiet meal this is not the place for you. It was a fun exciting night. The ladies that dance invite anyone who wants to dance up onto the tables and are not pushy if you're not into that. Great place and delicious Greek food.

The food is consistently delicious. They have shortened their menu in the past few years.. that is a good thing! I took off one star because service was a little slow, but in their defense, I was there on a Saturday night and the place was PACKED. Definitely make a reservation!

We have eaten at Taverna Opa many times. The food is always good. The service is usually good too. However on this night, the service was a little below their own standards. For example, some in our party ordered greek salad with grilled chicken, as an entree to be served together. Others ordered lamb.

So, two people got their lamb while nobody else got anything. Do those two people start to eat, or wait for the others and have their food get cold?

Then the greek salads came, WITHOUT the grilled chicken. "Sorry, the kitchen is still cooking the chicken", was the reply by the server. So our lamb eaters had to dig in before their own meals became too cold, while we watched. When the chicken finally arrived, the rest of us ate while the lamb eaters watched.

This is not the way Opa generally does things, but this night was way off why it should have been.

Food was very good. Be prepared for it to be loud! Dancing on tables and loud music. A lot of fun, but if you are wanting a dinner where you are able to have good conversation, this may not be the place

Well. I have been in the place in the past and decided to return. Bad call. Service took forever, waiters were more concentrated in talking to each other and using their phones than serving. The food came in after more than an hour, barely cooked (i ordered medium well) to the point of questionable food safety. No excuses, just a place that is spiralling down. Will never come back and I don’t recommend anyone taking the risk

Mostly Great food! Terrible service & cleanliness. We made a reservation on open table and indicated we wanted outdoor seating. When we arrived, the hostess said they don’t accept reservations for outdoor seating. We waited at the bar which was a disaster zone. There was a belly dancer- and some kids and other patrons- dancing on the tables, throwing napkins everywhere. The napkins were wet & soggy and being tracked everywhere. The bathrooms were disgusting- with the napkins being tracked everywhere and the area to get to the bathroom was overflowing with dirty dishes. And an old rusted supermarket cart blocking the main pathway. Thankfully there wasn’t a fire. In fact, there were dirty dishes everywhere. It became apparent that they lacked workers to bus the tables. I found it fascinating that they were so busy and must have enough (hopefully) clean dishes and utensils for thousands since no one was taking away the dirty ones.

Once seated (outside after a 30+ minute wait), we had mediocre service. The food was mostly amazing. But my entree, Athenian shrimp, was cold. I won’t be going back despite the good food. I would be scared to be reminded of the lack of cleanliness.

Visited Hollywood Florida for 4 days. This was the best food we had. The service was slow, I think they were down some chefs, or wait staff, couldn't tell, but it was worth the wait. Really nice outdoor area on the coastal water.

Shrimp dis was just okay. Food not hot and vegetables were cold. Moustakas was average at best, but at least it was hot. Manager had to come to take our order. He was very nice but the rest of the staff was average at best until they brought the check....then they were friendly.

Excellent spot for food and entertainment; however, sitting on the top section by the windows makes no sense to have seating on both sides. Several close calls with hitting servers as they pass by with food or drinks or both. Crazily cramped space in trying to add seating. Definitely would be a better experience with a little more room.

I live Greek food. The Greek salad & fried cheese was great but the mat platter was below average. The service was not great. It took us awhile to get menus. We never got plates to split the salad or meat platter. We had to use our bread plates to eat. I had to ask for water multiple times.

Food is good, servers are arrogant, they ignore you when you are seated, and aggravated to have to take your order. Its a shame, I live in walking distance from this restaurant, I'm a regular and i want to see it succeed but very disappointed in this last visit and its inconsistency.

Mash your own hummus with a morter and pestle, grilled octopus, stuffed grape leaves, half a Greek salad for 2 and lemon chicken. All tasty and prepared perfectly. We would have liked some avgolemono soup but they don't make it there. Sat along the canal and it was quiet enough for a conversation. Service was excellent and we had lots of leftovers for lunch the next day.

Hunmus was very good-server made it at the table. Appetizer Keftedes were awesome- these were 3 meatballs/lamb & beef mixed... I Loved the Athenian Shrimp and my husband enjoyed his lamb chops. Baklava outstanding!! Outside is non smoking now. Dancers inside dancing on tables.
