Description: At Opah Restaurant & Bar, we serve the finest fresh fish in Orange County. Carefully hand selected each day to deliver the best quality available. Come in and enjoy the menu created by Marc A. Cohen, One of the Best Chef's in Orange County. The menu is exquisite, featuring edible works of art, that look so good the could be on a magazine cover. Dont forget to try one of our signature Award Winning Martinis, or have some wine outside near the fireplace on the patio. We offer live music for our patrons on certain nights as well to add to the dining experience. If you wondering how we came up with the name Opah. It comes from the Hawaiian word for Moonfish, which was once viewed as Good Luck by fisherman, & often given away as a gesture of Good Will.

Came with two girlfriends for dinner Monday night . They have a great happy hour menu. We enjoyed dates wrapped in bacon. Very good. The most incredible shrimp nachos I ever ever ever in my whole life. A wedge salad which gave each of us a wedge. Chicken meatballs on a cucumber with a piece of ginger, yummy. Maui onion soup which was amazing. One of the girls had a super Tuscan wine that she absolutely loved. Don was our waiter and very helpful. A must go for everyone.

a lot of people think it is a greek restaurant but really it is a seafood restaurant mostly. Of course I was fine with that! So having some great oysters with an nice glass of wine was up my alley. So if you want a nice happy hour that isn't loud and has great seafood and service then this is the place to come!

This is a little jaunt coming from Irvine. The coconut shrimp, Meyer lemon hummus was excellent as well as the service. The halibut fish and chips was average...the the chips (shoe string french fries were excellent). The clam chowder soup was very good. The restaurant interior and patio are nice....but the old Irvine location was nicer. Of course they have change the menu items.

Don't let the name fool you, this is a seafood restaurant :) I am not a sea food fan, fortunately, there is plenty on the menu to keep vegetarians and carnivores happy as well. The cocktails are a highlight, my favorite is the pineapple martini! When we go to Opah we ALWAYS order the Sweet Potato Tower. Think skewered, lightly battered and fried then served with a chipotle ranch for dipping, delicious!

Used to visit frequently when we lived in AV. Went back there when we visited for a business lunch. Great service, good selection and fair prices for the lunch menus. Would recommend without hesitation.
