I've only eaten there a couple of time, but the restaurant is nice and the food is outstanding. They have a small outdoor patio for those who want to bring their pets.

My husband and I have gone twice on a Sunday for breakfast. The first time was on Memorial Day. We had a great waitress and the food was delicious. The second time was on Father's Day. It was very busy, we were seated right away but it took the waitress a long time to come to our table. We were... More

We are very sorry that your recent experience was not as good as your last. Since reading your comments, the staff has been reminded of the importance of good service. It may have been busy, but that's no excuse to be kept waiting, especially without your complimentary cocktails! We do hope that you haven't given up on us as we... More

This is our second review and third visit to Ophelia's. It's been around for a while but Opelia's offers consistency in high quality food and preparation, our\standing service with knowledgeable and friendly help (our waitress was formerly a citizen of the Czech Republic she was very good), and ambiance to match. This time my wife had the New England Lobster... More

My wife and I went there for dinner on Wednesday this past week. It was not very crowded, but they did accept reservations.We were placed in the back in a corner booth. After some of the reviews, I was wondering if it was a good choice. The waitress was friendly, pleasant and attentive. She complemented my wife on her sun... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your experience at Ophelia's. We are happy that you were satisfied with the food as well as the service. We agree on the negative comments. Seems as there is a smear campaign set up by a disgruntled ex- employee. Hope to see you again! More

First time was impressive-- not this time--5/11 Mother's Day. Sitting outside is great and service was good. Food less than mediocre for expensive food .not coming again. Flemings or Ruth's chris is a better choice for fine dining. What is wrong with you people?

We're very sorry that you had a bad experience but, having read your review, we think that you may have confused our restaurant with another. We would love to be in the same 'league'" as Flemings and Ruths Chris but we are more of a neighborhood Italian restaurant. If in fact it was Ophelias Pasta House that you dined at... More

First time visit. Pleasant staff. Very pleased with the food. Unfortunately, something may be wrong with their kitchen exhaust system. Our hair and clothing wreaked when we left. Really stinky! We sat in the back, maybe that was part of the reason. I would return but sit somewhere else. Maybe outside.
