Grilled Opah was delicious! Burger 🍔 was just so-so. Service was good. Very eclectic environment with outside seating to do people-watching. Will try for lunch next time.

Don't let the name fool you, this is a seafood restaurant :) I am not a sea food fan, fortunately, there is plenty on the menu to keep vegetarians and carnivores happy as well. The cocktails are a highlight, my favorite is the pineapple martini!...More

Used to visit frequently when we lived in AV. Went back there when we visited for a business lunch. Great service, good selection and fair prices for the lunch menus. Would recommend without hesitation.

What is great about Opah is not only the great food, great staff and great atmosphere....it's also a hidden gem in the city of Aliso Viejo!! You don't have to travel to the beach just to find this type of restaurant...it's in our own backyard....More

You can't go wrong with any of their starters. Bacon wrapped dates, short rib pot pie, ginger chicken meatballs, and sweet potato tower are all excellent!

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.
