“Very Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

Me and my husband went to a early dinner here with a Group On. They do not open until 4, I was glad I checked their hours as we were initially going for lunch. We ordered 3 appetizers and an entree. Complimentay humus came with the meal. The saganaki, tzatzik, and greek salad were very good. The lamb entree was good as well. The server was attenti. You have the option of eating outside by the intercostal or inside. We sat outside but in August it was hot. We missed the dancing that others metioned. but will go back again.

“One of our favorite restaurants!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

We live in Weston, Florida within 30 minutes from this restaurant, we have eaten here many times. We really like the food and the environment.

Food is great, seafood is their best, although their beef and lamb are also good, their menu offers Greek Plates which are very good for our taste, a little spicy from what other people say, we just love spicy food (not hot).

The restaurant environment is unique, specially at night, they play loud music and greek dancers show on the floor and on the tables, throwing napkins and even dishes (sometimes). Our kids love the place, very nice and fun.

If you are looking for a different experience this is the place, families will have a great meal and time at this restaurant. We have also been to other locations and they are all very similar. Go and visit!!! OPA!!!!

“Dog at the table in a restaurant?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

I recently visited this restaurant. Food was ok but I will never return as they allow dogs to sit on a chair in a carrier but with their head out and touching the table. I can't imagine this being a service dog and allowed to sit where people eat. That's just gross especially when the owner is touching the dog and then touching the wooden pestle to make hummus. Dogs don't belong in restaurants especially at the table. Also, experienced children as young as 2 playing on top of the table and no they were not dancing with the Greek dancer.

“Great food and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

We were not sure about this place, because of the mixed reviews, but I was not disappointed. We sat outside by the water and the weather was perfect. Our group ordered the Athena platter and everything on the platter was terrific. Flavorful, fresh and beautiful. The service was outstanding too. I would highly recommend Taverna Opa.
