Selected from reviews and location and Open Table Reservation option. Arrived early and seated promptly. Jose greeted us almost immediately and provided nice suggestions for the menu. The food came out quickly and was very good. Great wine selection as well.

L'Opera has an amazing staff and does have a private room for large groups. They will do an amazing job exceeding your expectations. (No I do not work there :-))
