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.

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.

I am always surprised to find gourmet in unexpected places. Opah is a unique dining experience in a neighborhood setting. Very nice place to bring your friends or your loves for a very reasonable price.

Opah is a favorite destination when we are in Orange County. Great oysters, starters & entrees. My wife and I share selections to make it a tasting menu event. Wonderful. Good Martinis as well.
