We tried this for the first time before the Walnut Street Theater and thought the food was fine. It is really more a bar that also serves food than a restaurant. The bar is very lively and rather loud during happy hour so be prepared....More

Opa is a nice place that I believe could be better. The Food is good but not that good for the price paid. The location is right in front of a parking lot which could be played around with some graffiti to add a touch...More

This place is pretty much Greek tapas. The servings are simply too small for the price. We ran up a big bill and left hungry. The crowd was pretty nice and the setting in general modern and trendy. There are much better places to spend...More

Modern twist on a number of traditional Greek dishes. Particular favourites include the saganaki with the apricot compote, scordalia with pine nuts and the grilled octopus with toursi (pickled vegetables). Reasonably priced and good service. Highly recommend!

Large plates offer a variety of items such as striped bass and pastitsio. The signature cocktail list and Greek wine selection offer the perfect complement to your meal. Acclaimed designer, Jun Aizaki/Creme, created an alluring setting which includes a striking birch branch canopy. Walk-in seating is available at the 24 seat bar and offers the full menu.
