Glad we made a second visit. First time it was almost empty, but the happy hour appetizers were generous and offered nice choices. We stayed for dinner this time as it had people at many tables, live piano music and positive energy. Felt cozier. Easy Parking. Service was superb and our dinners were delicious....a pork and a salmon choice. Very... More

The three of us all had well prepared traditional mediterranean dishes, which were customised to our preferences. The medium size was more than adequate.

We visited Traverse City this summer and decided to try Opa Uptown. We were very grateful the staff was willing to work with my diet restrictions (no dairy or spicy food), and the manager came over to ensure all the meals were acceptable. Not only was it acceptable, but it was some of the best food we've had and the... More

This was my first visit here, and I will be back. I went with 3 friends for a night out, and I had picked the restaurant. We were all delighted with everything there. The food was excellent, the wait staff was very friendly, and the prices very reasonable. I had the Asiago veal, my friends had the salmon, spaghetti and... More

We live in TC, this was our first visit here. Atmosphere and service good. Food EXCELLENT. We had three entree's at the table - Hanger Steak, Veal Marsala (the call it "Sicilian"), and Perogi's. All the food was great, including the salads. The "medium" sized entree's were plenty, and I don't think you could find a better 17.00 meal in... More

Had our weekly "lunch bunch" gathering yesterday in the newly remodeled Uptown Opa's. A lovely lunch, varied menu, excellent service, reasonable lunch prices, just a good place to have something slightly different. The restaurant features Greek food, but there are many other choices should you not care for Greek/Mediterranean. The soups are particularly good and unusual. Apparently there is entertainment...

We dined at Up Town European Cuisine on Labor Day. It is owned by the same owner as Opa Café where we had enjoyed breakfast in May. We were greeted and given our preference of where we would like to sit. Our server Tracy was pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. We started with the Meatball Duel Saganaki for $8.... More

Hidden on the first floor of an office building just east of downtown with plenty of free parking. Menu includes delicious Chicken or Veal Piccata with capers and pinenuts, bourbon marinated Hanger Steak with Portabella mushrooms, and Chicken or Veal Saltimbocca. Many entrees available in Medium or Large sizes. Includes interesting homemade soups like Chicken Orzo with Leeks and Red... More

Really good food and good service. I have to eat gluten free and they were more than willing to accommodate my food allergy. I sat in the bar and it was the bar tenders second day on the job and he was trained very well. Did not like the girls sitting at the bar who turned around and stared at... More

This restaurant is phenomenal! We had a party of 10 and everyone loved their meal. The lamb was the best I've ever had, the calamari was cooked perfectly and was tender and delicious. The salmon was great as was the steak and the spaghetti and meatballs were great! The service was outstanding they are so organized and have amazing attention... More
