Modern twist on a number of traditional Greek dishes. Particular favourites include the saganaki with the apricot compote, scordalia with pine nuts and the grilled octopus with toursi (pickled vegetables). Reasonably priced and good service. Highly recommend!

I grew up in Detroit, where they actually have a Greektown area that's bursting with Greek restaurants, pastry shops, etc. And ever since they built stadiums for the Detroit Tigers and the Detroit Lions right next door, hotels and casinos have been sprouting up in...More

Greek-style food in a quaint little spot in downtown Philly. Food was incredible. Service was excellent (thank you, Jesse and other staff). A great find with a nice atmosphere. Only downsides: 1) no option suitable for kids. Now, it's really not a family restaurant to...More

Opa is a new Modern Greek restaurant and bar located in Center City's Midtown Village neighborhood. The menu features a fresh take on traditional Greek flavors. Featured items from the mezedes (small plates) include herbed keftedes (meatballs) in a ouzo-tomato sauce, octopus and spinach croquettes served with a smokey feta dip. Large plates offer a variety of items such as striped bass and pastitsio. The signature cocktail list and Greek wine selection offer the perfect complement to your meal. Acclaimed designer, Jun Aizaki/Creme, created an alluring setting which includes a striking birch branch canopy.

Walk-in seating is available at the 24 seat bar and offers the full menu.
