Overlooking the historic Independence Square, Ophelia's offers an infusion of cultural flavors in an eclectic American menu. The steaks, seafood, duck, and lamb are a few of our guest's favorite items. Layers of flavors contribute to all of the dishes we serve. You will find the atmosphere casual, yet romantic at the same time. Ophelia's in Independence is truly a gem off the beaten path.

Always a great meal!

A group had dinner before leaving on a trip. Service was fast and the meal was superb, even for a large group.

Food was average to poor. I even told the waitress my food had NO flavor and she just blew it off. Didn't offer to fix or anything. Service was EXTREMELY slow - took two hours to get our food. Won't go back

Don't get scared by the term "fine dining" - this is not a pretentious, over-priced restaurant. We went to Ophelia's this week for our 10th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful meal and the service was exceptional. Both my husband and I opted for the evening specials, his a stuffed chicken breast and mine grilled salmon. The vegetable accompaniments were... More

I had been to Ophelia's a few years ago but some how forgot about it. The food is amazing. Top quality and the prices are unbelievable for the quality. I went twice in January and plan to return in February. The sea bass was delicious and cooked perfectly. The polenta a perfect compliment. I had a glass of wine with... More

We stumbled onto restaurant week, and found a true gem. Ophelia's food was wonderful, the wine list was intriguing and the service was impeccable. The dishes were all beautiful, and the flavors were awesome. I rarely eat a steak, but I was intrigued by the Chateaubriand and was not disappointed. The chocolate dessert was excellent. I would recommend this to... More

Every time we eat at Ophelia 's we remember how great this place is. The food is amazing. Everything comes out with a beautiful presentation. And the food tastes just as good. Their fish selections are outstanding. I had a sea bass that was one of the best fish dishes I have had anywhere.

Romantic dinner for two during Restaurant Week was wonderful! Live music, amazing appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Chilean sea bass with onion jam and polenta, beef medallions, creme brûlée trio, and chocolate sampler plate were our choices (see pics). We can't wait to return!

Ate lunch at Ophelia's for restaurant week with friends. Fabulous food. We are trying new restaurants this week and it is by far my favorite so far. Salmon was delicious. Husband loved the pork medallions We will be back. Want to try the Sunday Brunch.

I had not been to Ophelia's in several years. My previous visits had been for lunch and one special occasion private breakfast. Friday night dinner was great. I ended up ordering a light dinner because I couldn't resist the lobster bisque soup. I also ordered a wedge salad. Since I hadn't ordered a heavy dinner, I reasoned that I had... More
