On our way to a performance at the Bayway Arts Center. We stopped for dinner at Opa, an unassuming, family run, Greek restaurant close by. Parking was easy in the small paved lot (one handicapped space) at 5:00 pm.
Three steps (or concrete ramp) led to the first set of double doors. A small, tiled entryway with a settee, and another set of double doors led us into the restaurant proper.
A full-height bar, along with some high tables and chairs were to the right. Booths, tables and chairs were to the left.
We were greeted by a lovely young lady who seated us at a table on the upper dining level (in the back and up one step). At this level there was a banquette, as well as the tables and chairs. Ample space throughout allows for easy navigation.
The suggestion of the avegolemono soup (lemon chicken) was great. The soup was delicious! Our other choices were delicious as well. Our server checked on us several times to make sure all was well. It was! Dinner here was definitely a good choice!
Large, single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible restrooms are located in a hallway at the back of the main level dining room.
