Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Reservations, Late Night, Dessert
Description: Chill out and relax on one of the dark-coloured upholstered chairs or on one of the white high chairs. Sip a cocktail such as a mojito, a Milky Way or a ginger gin - or go for a whiskey or glass of fine wine. After dining in one of the restaurants, business people and the trendy in-crowd like to head off to the bar to round off the evening. Look out for white illuminated bird which is behind the long bar. The staff are friendly and professional and offer service with a smile.

Located on the second floor of opera house, beautiful venue, with traditionnal, high celling dining room and great sunny terasse. A simple but good cuisine, more lunch than dinner time. We had delicious Wiener schnitzel with asparagus, very good and cooked to perfection. Wine list is surprisingly unsophisticated, with none of high quality German Riesling, just mainstream production. Still, great... More

I went there for lunch and I had a great time. Good selection of food, beautiful interior and nice service. This place reservation is a must. I called one month before to get a table. I recommend for a family sunday brunch

well, the building is great, but after having read good comments my expectations were probably too high. first,"à la carte" is disappointing, there is not so much choice. service nice but not really professional: my starter was served less than one minute after the apéritif which we had not finished -of course. meat (men's cut Nebraska filet) was good but...

It is difficult to understand any negative review of this lovely, intimate, and delicious restaurant. The service was impeccable. it was mushroom season and the related dishes were extraordinary. Our wait staff was attentive - pour our own wine? - absurd. We were greeted with champagne of our choice (Rose).The wine (2010 white Bordeaux) was poured graciously and our glasses... More

We spent a great evening at Opera Frankfurt. We ordered salad with shrimps and goat cheese as appetizer and gnocchi and some kind of ravioli in a soup. It was all delicious and the portions were enough. The service was very good, staff more than friendly, we listened to some live piano music which made a beautiful atmosphere on the... More

Very particular place, located inside the Opera House at Frankfurt. The environment is great, the room is wonderfully decorated. Food was great, I had Argentinian meat and it was very well cooked. The only problem was a very slow service. It took us 2 hours and half for a dinner of four people. I cannot judge the price since I... More

This restaurant is stunningly situated inside a beautiful and historic building. The dining room is classically elegant and one can almost imagine oneself in a Degas painting - except that the lighting gives an ambience better suited to business dinners than to romantic rendezvous. Fortunately I was with a work crowd and we could all see and hear each other,... More

This evening, we decided to revisit the restaurant Opera again. We had nice memories and were delighted to get a table without a reservation right away. Unfortunately, this is where the positive review ends. Our waiter did not have the professionalism and class you would expect. We had to pour our wine ourselves and it always semmed that he was...

We have been there some years ago, and we planned to have another 'nice little lunch' on this trip. It was superb. The dining room and the terrace are beautiful. The food was great. From the shaved ham, which is served with fresh bread as you sit down, to the petit fours with the coffee at the end, everything item... More

A real treat, just off the main Square by the Opera House in Frankfurt. The pasta with truffles was one of the best such concoctions I've ever had - and as a family we are annual visitors to Italy this is really saying something. Excellent choice of very imaginative daily specials as well - though I opted for the sea... More
