went for cocktails only did not eat. my first impression was that the lounge is a nice cozy little hiding spot in midtown Manhattan but i was put off by some of their prices and how the prices are presented. Their on line menu does not have any prices listed except for their happy hour and price fix specials. i... More

Was stoked to try this place after finding it on a top 100 foodie places. I've ticked off 4 already and they have been worthy, this place, not so much. The endive salad, while rich with the tender and lightly bitter leaves, didn't have and contrasting flavors I was expecting for example the candied pecans were probably just cut pecans... More

Fantastic food with sophisticated French atmosphere. A very good brunch and very nice people. I recommend the Crab cake and the Lobster appetizer.

Was there late after a full day and evening working. Grabbed a burger before going to my room. It was quite good, better than expected. Cocktails were good, generous pours.

Came across across the restaurant after seeing a sign outside the Renaissance Hotel at Lexington Street. I was attracted by the lunch package at very reasonable price in such a renowned and upscale hotel. I have forgotten how much, if I am not mistaken around 22 USD pre-tax for an appetiser, main course and a set of dessert. I had... More

We were staying in the hotel so it was convenient but we had two small kids and tried to find something else first. It was late so we had trouble finding something right away so we asked if they had high chairs and and they do not but they invited us right in and got us settled into a great... More

Opia is on the second floor. It might be easy to miss if you are not staying at the hotel. We had a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. It was quiet and relaxed, just what we needed after a busy morning of walking and touring. We ordered an omelet, the jumbo ravioli and the Opia burger. It was all... More

Went for a mid evening meal, should have been alerted by the smell from the scallops on another table but my daughter ordered the scallops anyway. They were slightly overcooked and my daughter left two. I tried one and was put off by the smell and the taste. My wife also had one and both she and my daughter had... More

Wow, we stopped into this restaurant attached to the hotel to find a great personality, a 4 piece jazz band, amazing food and an accommodating server. We wish we didn't already have dinner reservations somewhere else or we would have happily tried their main courses. We did have a pre-dinner cheese plate where the selections we robust and a taste... More

Description
Opia Restaurant is a very welcome addition to New York’s East 57th Street, a secluded, comfortable French oasis in the big city. The upstairs bar, lounges and dining room range from truly chic comfort to an intimate and subdued dining room. The bar and lounge is the largest area of the restaurant, so you’ll definitely want to schedule relaxation time there. The ambience is markedly friendly and buzzing. The arched windows and high ceilings create a splendid sense of space in the crowded old city, and it is a delight. The menu is French in the style we like best these days, inflected with the flavours of all the Mediterranean. Try starter of tuna tartare with yellow fin tuna, pickled ginger, wasabi avocado mousse, mango and yuzu sesame dressing, or an entree of roasted poussin in an orange glaze, or perhaps a delectable cut of dulce de leche flan for dessert. The wine list is thoughtful and offers much choice among the affordable with almost irresistible temptation among the reserve list.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
