Birthday. Fun atmosphere. Loud (almost too loud) when the belly dancer come out.
Food was just awful. Gyro.... dried out and soooo salty!
Salmon dinner...... could have picked up the salmon and slapped it on the table. Dry and terribly over done!
Husband had lamb shank. No flavor, string beans coated w garlic. Mashed were good
Needs huge improvement in the food department.

Well, everyone seemed to have fun except us. Go for belly dancing and if you want a place that is so noisy that you don’t have to talk to anyone. Was served octopus that was inedible but everyone around us seemed happy with their food.

Opal! We had a great time for my birthday since it was a lively, energetic environment. I had a party of 18 which they accommodated but with only 1 waitress, who we had to track down more than a few times. That's the reason I can't give it 5 stars. Definitely would recommend for a celebration event with friends or family.

We’ve eaten out in the deck in the summer but this was out 1st time eating inside. Not quite the same atmosphere, but it was fairly empty at 7pm on. Friday. As we were paying, 2 large groups arrived, so it may just be a later crowd place.
As always, the food was amazing!!! This place never disappoints! Staff is always warm and friendly. Highly recommend!!

We were a party of 6. The restaurant was very short staffed. It took our waiter forever to bring our water and take our orders. We placed our appetizer and entree orders at the same time. Again, it took forever to get refills on water, boxes for our leftovers and our checks. The waiter added a 20% gratuity to our checks. I did not think he deserved the 20% but I did leave him something. He brought me the check back and told me I had shorted him $10.00. (The 20% tip was 18.00, I was generous in leaving him a $8.00 tip) I told him I was not obligated to leave a 20% tip and he insisted that I did. I asked to speak to the manager. The manager came over, apologized for the lack luster service, took the check (and my tip) and that was that.
I have been to this restaurant a couple of times but this put a very bad taste in my mouth. No waiter should demand in any situation especially when your service is horrible. I will not be going back.

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants, but the restaurant missed the mark this time. We were put in a side room (like an outdoor patio) and the heat was on full blast; uncomfortably hot. Someone did finally adjust it after we asked 3 times. But the waiters threw the napkins before everyone had even arrived, so froths that hadn't been before, they kind of miss out on the experience. Our waitress seemed like she was struggling. We had to repeatedly ask for things or have checks corrected because drinks or food were put on wrong checks. When we were about to leave a belly dancer finally came in and I think there was a DJ...
In my previous experience, the main room is where it's at. There is usually the DJ and more interaction. I felt totally out of place this time. I feel bad for recommending it for my holiday dinner. The food is always good...but they did forget to totally put in an order for one of my guests. She ended up leaving since we had almost finished before they remembered.

We came here for an early birthday dinner. Our server (possibly, the owner) was very enthusiastic and fun. He recommended certain dishes, one of which I had - branzino, which was the market fish. I expected it to be flaky and fresh, but it tasted a little old, along with the side potatoes. The asparagus was good, however. We enjoyed the grilled octopus and hummus with pita bread as our appetizer, which was very delicious. Our server brought us a mortar and pestle to make our own hummus as a side bonus, whicch was fun. Ours did not taste as good as the chef's hummus. My husband loved his grilled pork loins, which he said was very tender. We got complimentary desserts for my birthday - my husband enjoyed his baklava while I ate a little bit of my walnut cake, then took the rest home. Our server threw white napkins in the air around us for our Greek birthday celebration. I recommend coming to this restaurant to have fun. There is belly dancing later in the evening.
