Description: Opa is a new Modern Greek restaurant and bar located in Center City's Midtown Village neighborhood. The menu features a fresh take on traditional Greek flavors. Featured items from the mezedes (small plates) include herbed keftedes (meatballs) in a ouzo-tomato sauce, octopus and spinach croquettes served with a smokey feta dip. Large plates offer a variety of items such as striped bass and pastitsio. The signature cocktail list and Greek wine selection offer the perfect complement to your meal. Acclaimed designer, Jun Aizaki/Creme, created an alluring setting which includes a striking birch branch canopy. Walk-in seating is available at the 24 seat bar and offers the full menu.

Very interesting decor. Very good service. Excellent lunch menu. I had the eggplant and olive spreads. Very generous portion. Serve with vegetables and Pita. And like that the waiter brought some more Pita to me on his own and I had more bread then to use with the abundant spreads. The octopus was excellent and tender. The spinach croquettes were... More

I shared dinner after a conference with some friend and we had made reservations for dinner after unsuccessfully being seated her the previous night. I order the pasticcio and was really disappointed with the dish. One of my friends ordered lamb chops, med rare, and was told that they are always served that way. Yet when they were served, there...

Never would have thought of pairing watermelon and feta in a salad but it was amazing-the feta complimented the sweetness of the watermelon. . For main course I had the special of shrimp with fettuccine-just wonderful. Sauce was so good and shrimp perfectly cooked. Husband had the pork skewers with oregano fries and the white bean soup. Both were excellent.... More

Decided to stop by for a couple drinks...the drinks were going great until I saw the mouse running around the restaurant. I alerted the bartender who shrugged and commented "well, you're always going to have one running around." Really?! Cuz I go to a lot of bars and restaurants and I've never seen a mouse running around! I've been here... More

We went for drinks and our waiter was just weird and a not with it. He brought the check early, never asked if we wanted more drinks but told us the kitchen was closing in an hour. There are better drinks out there. We stopped in because this was the only place that wasn't packed, a red flag we didn't... More

There was no customers, but took 30 min to get our food. Grill octopus was ok not worth paying $14, $9 salad was small,but good. We paid... More

Went there with family and friends during a weeknight, so it wasn't busy. Other than the assorted dip platter, the food was just ok. This is from a true Greek. The portions were small. There were two orders of lamb chops and some were a little tough and chewy. I ordered the stuffed pasta. Flavor was ok, but portion was... More
