My co-workers and I went to Opah's for lunch this past Friday. Overall, we all had a great dining experience. We ordered: shrimp & fries; fried chicken cobb salad; shrimp salad; fried chicken; and halibut. The food was nicely presented and everyone said they enjoyed their entree. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Great location in Aliso Viejo Town Center.... More

The menu here caters for a wide variety of people. The food is good quality, but not great. Friendly staff looked after us well

My friend and I had a delightful lunch here to celebrate her birthday. The food was, as always, delicious and the service was excellent. I always have the Caesar salad with Polenta cubes and their fresh warm bread. My friend had a Salmon salad which, she said was wonderful. The staff is very efficient but makes no attempt to rush...

The food has always been good. I have sent back a few drinks for being way too strong. I like a drink to have flavor, not just alcohol. Service has generally been very good. I do really like this spot and will continue to go here!

The fish here is wonderful. I had the seared tuna, two others in our group had the opah (a white fish that has a similar texture to tuna) and we had the beet salad and the house salad to start. The wine was decent, the service was good and the place was lively. It's located in a giant outdoor mall,... More

Great appies and cocktails with happy hour prices before 6 everyday. Love meeting friends and sitting in the outdoor patio. Best spot for drinks in AV.

Opah's is great. We love Watermarc in Laguna Beach, and this is the same chef. Prices are higher but reasonable for the area. Food is delicious and great drink menu.

While the food can be sometimes a little off, Opah's is definitely the best restaurant in town. The food is upscale and has choices that please everyone. Opah's has a very good happy hour and definitely the best wine by the glass list (and maybe by the bottle too!) for miles around.

Great variety in the menu and tasty dishes. Very nice restaurant in a suburban family area. The bar scene can get very busy. It's a loud restaurant which can be fun. It's always nice to get an outdoor table too.
