Delicious dining, relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for a date night. Service was stellar; knowledgeable and let us order "off menu". Overall enjoyable and better than expected!

Opah has it all. Excellent food, Outdoor seating, a bar with TVs for those who can't live without, and a quiet section, where you actually can converse without having to shout. And add to that, a Early dinner special, where appetizers are half price, and...More

Opah had a decent vegetarian burger, but not much to write home about. However, their desserts are very good, albeit wayyy too large for one person, and drinks are also recommended, especially the Hemingway daiquiri.

Service was great. Food was amazing. Drinks are great. Dining room can get a little loud when crowded, though. I’ve been here a few times and will return.

After reading all of the glowing reviews, we tried Opah last night. A great disappointment! Starting with lousy service, tasteless bread, dry short ribs, coconut shrimp without coconut, having to ask for butter three times, we won't be coming back for dinner. However, the clam...More

First, at least for me, this restaurant is a bit pricey for a senior out for a casual lunch. But, and equally as important, the food is fantastic. If you believe you get what you pay for, this is the place to go. Service excellent,...More

At Opah Restaurant & Bar, we serve the finest fresh fish in Orange County. Carefully hand selected each day to deliver the best quality available. Come in and enjoy the menu created by Marc A. Cohen, One of the Best Chef's in Orange County. The menu is exquisite, featuring edible works of art, that look so good the could be on a magazine cover. Dont forget to try one of our signature Award Winning Martinis, or have some wine outside near the fireplace on the patio. We offer live music for our patrons on certain nights as well to add to the dining experience. If you wondering how we came up with the name Opah. It comes from the Hawaiian word for Moonfish, which was once viewed as Good Luck by fisherman, & often given away as a gesture of Good Will.
