Great authentic Greek cuisine. Try the chicken pita, meatloaf or the grilled Brussels sprouts. All so delicious. Great happy hour, as well. 4pm to 6pm Monday through Friday. Half off apps and beers. Also don't forget the Greek lemon soup.!

We went to Opa! for my birthday lunch on a Friday at 11 AM. There was no one else in the restaurant, and even when we left at noon there were only two other tables filled. The service was quick and we were obviously seated quickly because of this which was great. I had the awesome lemon soup (must have... More

Make sure if you want to make a reservation at this restaurant, that they actually "hold" your reservation. We made one for a certain time on a certain date after asking them if they take reservations. Since they do, I made one and we had to wait over 30 minutes for our table. The only excuse given was a "miscommunication"... More

I always order the chicken skewers with Tzasiki (sp?). It's my favorite. I've been known to share in some Oozo as well.

The flavor of our food was great, especially if you enjoy garlic. Our only complaint was that nothing was served hot. The meat and rice was OK lukewarm, but the fries were disappointing. My family raved about the fries in the past, but not this time. The specialty cocktails looked interesting and seemed to be served in large goblets.

Sure you could sit at a table and have a regular meal but the bar scene here in Willow Glen is also cool. Especially on a Sunday! Have a drink (or a few) and kick back with bottomless mimosas or maybe beer... the Opa Gyro Hash and Eggs is a great hangover cure and also great even if you haven't... More

I hesitated to eat here because I thought I really don't like Greek food. (Hummus and yogurt are not really my "thing." But, I* met a client there for lunch and really liked it. The appetizer sampler was very good -- especially the olive spread. And both the chicken and seafood skewers were perfectly cooked. The beet salad also was... More

Friday evening without a reservation! Eat at the bar which was comfortable, the bar tender helpful and an expert cocktail maker! Fascinating drinks being created before our very eyes! Excellent Beet Salad followed by Sea Bass which I enjoyed but my friend wasn't happy that this fish had bones! Good atmosphere and one could at least carry on a conversation... More

I like this restaurant, and usually go to the one in Campbell, and recently went to the one on Lincoln in Willow Glen (San Jose). This review suggests skipping the one on Lincoln in San Jose. A few in our party ordered appetizers as their main dish, while others ordered entrees. We wanted all of it to come out at... More

Wish I could provide more detail on the restaurant, but unfortunately did not get the chance to try it out. In the area on business by myself and based on recommendations decided to give it a try.
