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. A couple was waiting on the hostess when I arrived, by the time she returned to the podium after seating them, a couple... More

Great place for a fun meal with family or friends in the heart of Willow Glen. Full bar, beer on tap, easy parking next door in parking garage. I recommend reservations as this place fills up fast.

I have dined at several other of the Opa chain restaurants (Los Gatos, Los Altos, Campbell) and had always had mediocre lunches. This happened several times, so that I really didn't want to dine here for dinner. But, was I thankfully wrong. This is the best of the Opa locations. The space is open, inviting, and bright due to the... More

Saturday lunch without a reservation; the patio was packed, but there were tables available inside. We both had lamb; my husband ordered the Lamb skewers with OPA garlic fries, I ordered the Lamb pita with OPA garlic fries. The lamb was cooked perfectly and very flavorful! We would go back again when we are in the area next for lunch!

My date and I came here Friday night. Very busy which is usually good news. We had some flat bread with some spreads as an appetizer which was good. We split the skewers, one beef and one chicken a piece. They were both seasoned well and tasty. Both were moist and flavorful but the filet mignon skewer was excellent. Service... More

Had lunch this past Saturday with my husband. Having had the Saganaki (Flaming Cheese) at a previous lunch with co-workers, I new we had to order it! Total head turner, I wish I had thought to video the presentation. Hats off to our servers, this deserves hazardous duty pay, when they call it flaming, they are not kidding. The Kasseri... More
