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.

    Everything was amazing! We had a nice view of the water and could watch boats going by while we ate and I loved the decor and all the Greek writing that was around which added to the overall feel. The food was amazing, the quality that makes you want to go to Greece! The highlight for my mom was the hummus that they bring to the table when you get there in a mortar and pestle with some bread (so so tasty) and the highlight for me was the spanakopita (best I've ever had and a great portion for two to share as an appetizer). Our waitress, Nicole, was so nice and friendly, she even pulled out a Greek greeting when my mom told her I spoke Greek; she provided great service and helped make our night out extra enjoyable.

    I frequent their restaurant in Delray Beach and always have a good time, I tried the Hollywood one and there was something wrong. This is the first time I had to send two meals back that were bad. I don't know if they switched purveyors. the quality of was definitely off.

    Expensive pricing, poor quality. Our vegetables were sour, we told the waitress to tell chef so no one else would be served that! I really don’t know if she did tell or not, she didn’t come back to the table until the end of our dinner. Waiters rush the orders, they just want to get you out of there! They bring the main course before the table has been cleared of appetizers! Very disappointing!!

    The appetizers were very good. The main dish was horrible. Porc was very chewy and the Lamb Gyro plate was processed meat. Not real gyro at all…it was lamb bologna heated up. Absolutely horrendous

    Very good Greek food paired with Nico Lazaridi Chardonnay was perfect recommendation. Belly dancer and music very entertaining and added to the overall party atmosphere. If you’re looking for a quiet dinner place this is not the one. But if you are looking for a fun filled evening with friends, family, with all the Greek Mediterranean flair…this is it.

    It was everything I remembered! The food was amazing and the service was superb. I brought my dog with me and no sooner had I sat down that our waiter Nabil asked me if he could bring him some lamb. My fur baby was very happy, a huge portion of lamb and water appeared! We sat outside, because of the dog, so we didn’t hear the music and the belly dancer but we could see that the show was fun. From the homemade hummus, to the pikilia, to the lamb and the veggies, the food was delicious. Everyone was very accommodating towards my dog that acted like a speed bump in the path of all the waiters!

    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

    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.

    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.
