The service and ambiance was great! The food is mediocre. The fish and chips was bland - no seasoning. The mussels were great with garlic butter.
The service was great but the halibut was totally dry and most disappointing, especially given the price and the fact this is supposed to be a seafood restaurant.
Great food and service.
Delicious bacon wrapped dates and chopped seafood salad.
Delicious food at a great piece. Perfect for celebrations, business meetings or regular family dinners.
Great food, very good service. A really nice restaurant
As always, the food was excellent and the service, excellent also. Our server was very knowledgeable about ever item on the menu.
I usually order the Chicken Milanese, which is outstanding. This time I ordered the Halibut Fish & Chips. It was very good. Our server, Kristin, was terrific.
Only game in town!! Bartenders make a GREAT dry martini!!
Good food and attentive service
Very nice scallops great loved the halibut, cocktails nice
Great food and service per usual
I took 2 sisters to Opah to celebrate one of their birthdays. The food and service were excellent!
Greeted by the manager and given a choice on seating, which was nice. Then Philip was a FANTASTIC and attentive server. Really appreciated him!
Chicken Milanese, delicious. Ambiance and service was very good.
Great server, love the Spanish guitar music, really good food
The food was excellent, Scallops cooked perfectly and served hot. Delicious martinis and Kudos to the owner for stopping by to check on our food. The only downside of sitting on patio is it was extremely noisy and loud and we had to yell to hear each other and we are not hearing impaired. Other than noise, 5 star food quality and great service!
Celebrated a friend’s birthday! It was lovely being out and enjoying our little event!
Great dinner before going to the movies. Best restaurant in Aliso Viejo.
My goodness is this place a gem. The food was incredible, so thankful this is in my area.
Delicious as usual. Sadly still no creme brulee. Music too loud. Kevin was an excellent waiter
We haven’t been to Oprah in a while and it is still a wonderful meal, in a great ambiance, close to home. All four meals were delicious and our server was attentive and pleasant.
Fabulous! Took my dad for Father’s Day and the food and service were both fantastic!
Best Father’s Day ever!! The music was awesome and people were dancing. The whole staff was amazing!!
The food was good but the menu seemed to be reduced compared to what we remember. The server did not mention any daily specials either. Maybe both are due to COVID? We felt that the service in general was quite sub-par by OPAH’s usual standards and not as prompt or attentive as we’ve come to expect. Our server was either overloaded or didn’t have a good sense of when to check in with us. Hopefully this was just an off night.
Halibut s little dry
Grgich Hills Estate Chardonnay not on wine list
Polenta Croutons are a real treat
This may require further post Covid investigation
Just another dining experience where good restaurants can’t find either competent or enough help and that poor service trickles down to the customers. Better to limit your clients to how many you can truly serve and not degrade your reputation.
My comments are pointed towards my arrival.
Showed up for my reservation and the host promptly directed my 96 year old father and I to the “cheap seats” at the far end of a temporary patio area.
The restaurant was empty.
I mentioned that I had a reservation, and was told the tables in the restaurant were “reserved”. I reminded the host that I in fact had a reservation, and was greeted with attitude. After a moment of grumbling on the hosts part she acquiesced and allowed us to have a table where all the other grownups were sitting.
Love the food here, but the quality is slipping. Our waiter was great. The host here not so much.
Haven’t been out at a restaurant in over 16 months. Wanted a nice place to go and enjoy. Well, Opah’s did NOT disappoint. It was very nice. Wade was our server. He was kind and told us about the specials. Good vibes all around.
Amazing dinner and they sat us right away
Waiter was fabulous in every way
Thank you so much for a fun experience. Our server was great!
Anniversary, the food and service were very good
Overall excellent service and food
Food was good. Menu was varied. We all enjoyed the meal.
We had a great dinner at Opah. I had the scallops and they were lovely. My friend had the pork chop and he said it was delicious. My kid had a burger and the portion was big enough for him (he's 10) and he enjoyed it. We had the bacon wrapped dates as an appetizer and it was yummy. My only slight complain is the temporary Aliso Viejo Town Center area looks a bit messy. Wish it was a bit nicer. I think they should permanently close down that street and make a nicer grass area with tables so it will look nicer.
Best local spot everything from service to food was great
We always s enjoy our meals at Opah’s, and the staff is friendly and efficient.
I always enjoy going to OPAH. I try to have dinner there at least once a week. This week my server was Kristin, who is the best. Don't miss out, ask for Kristin when she is available and you won't be disappointed. In addition, the management is super and always checking on the status of your dinner.
