Good atmosphere, ok food.... – I was expecting a nicer place. I read that someone had problems with everything tasting like lemon, well I had that same problem except everything was covered in garlic. It was a little repugnant. The food was ok. The prices were decent though. The atmosphere is the best part. Even if you're shy, you some how find yourself on top of the table dancing! We had fun, but personaly I wouldnt go back to eat. Maybe to have some drinks and a good time.

Great place to bring a visitor – I went to the location in South Beach several times. You can choose to eat formally in the dining room or eat at the benches in the back near the bar. The only thing that is slightly problematic is that each dish they had was spiked with lemon. That's fine for one, but I was disappointed that all of them had the same flavor base. We ordered lamb chops, rice pilaf, lemon potatoes, sausage, kefkedes, and steak and they all had lemon on it. They were really good with the exception of the lemon-based sausage. They are quite affordale and the experience is unique. After eating you are coaxed onto the table to dance with the bellydancers. It's a fun place to go before heading out to a club.

Rowdy ambience and uninspired Greek cuisine will test the limits of your taste. – In Short
Dried herbs hang from the rafters and village scenes dot the walls of the rustic interior. Though waiters once broke into folk dances here, Opa has evolved into a drum-throbbing, belly-dancing dive where anyone can mount tables to shimmy. The menu features grilled seafoods and meats, moussaka and meze (Greek tapas). Desserts include phyllo-custard pie and yogurt drizzled with mountain honey and walnuts. Anise-flavored ouzo is available for those who want an authentic alcoholic drink.

Great fun with a warning or two – This place is meant for group dining. because the whole point of the place is dancing, especially on the tables! This is not a date place, as we noticed tables of two people just kind of sitting and watching, while not paying attention to their date.

The food is very good, no question. You must be prepared to accept that the bill should be split evenly going in, because Opa's bills never make sense. Even with a prix fixe set-up so that everyone gets the same thing for the same price, they break down the prix fixe by item on the bill! This combined with a drinks bill will make for a healthy fight, as our group did when we received the bill, effectively ruining out night. 'Tis shame, as we were having a blast before that.

Had a Blast!!! – i went as part of a party of eight girls celebrating a bachelorette party, and had the best time! it is not a place for people who are cost concious...i think that my share of the bill was 60-80 bucks.... the loud, fun, crazy atmosphere was worth the price. we we're on the tables all night! we're looking for another excuse to go back to miami for a repeat! ---dallas, texas

Not Special any More – Opa used to be a great place, until a year or two ago. On our last trip, which wasn't even prime time, we were told there was a 'drink minimum' for our 8 party group. (After we turned down the 'family style' option which they try to present as mandatory.) We complied, then proceeded to order food, when we were told that there was a $20 per person food minimum. We drank the wine and ate as much of the food as we could before they started clearing it away (w/o asking if we were done, which we weren't). Then they brought the check and INSISTED that we pay and go. Now, you can establish a minimum, or turn the table aggressively, but not both. We PAID for our table. We won't go back.

A place to have fun – You come here to have fun and have good greek mezze. The spanokopita wasn't as crispy as it should be, but the taste was good. The music is great and so is the ambiance. Once you're there, you feel like you're in Greece. However, heed this warning: avoid taverna opa if you like a quiet dinner because this place is for partying

Greek food and dancing on tables – One of the most fun places to go to. The dinner and dancing on tables makes it #1 in my book

Table dancing – I loved this place its like no other in Miami. The food was good. VERY EXCITING! The belly dancers are good, better than I have seen at other places. If you are looking to have fun, dance if you like and forget about your problems this is the place to go.

Only thing is we spent $100.00++ for three people becuase they have a minimum if you want a table. But I am going back again this weekend so I guess I did not mind it.
