What Customers Say About Opera Cafe & Lounge

"So Delicious"

"Love to dine at Opera! Their drinks are refreshing. The bread and butter before a meal is so tasty. Usually order stuffed potato which is so delicious. The quinoa salad with broiled shrimp tasted fresh and delicious! Shrimp casserole so tasty! The oven baked potato with fresh salad is so delicious filled with olives and pickles. Fried shrimp and french fries are seasons perfectly. Kunefe dessert Superior!!"

- Debrah C.

"Excellent Chicken Soups"

"Don’t sleep on Opera. Customer service and food are delightful. Being that I’m congested with a head cold, I began searching high and low for a place with excellent chicken soups. You know because chicken soup is like medicine for the soul! Opera’s chicken soup was just what I needed. Full of nice pieces of chicken and carrots and the broth was perfect - not overly salty like some other places. I loved it!"

- Sharron W.

"Outdoor Patio"

"I love this place. Specially for breakfast or lunch. My favorite thing is Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon, cheese gozleme and napoleon for dessert and cappuccino. I have been coming here since 2016. I like that they have an outdoor patio. Food is always coming out fast and the bread they are serving is soo delicious. Great for big groups of people, plenty of space."

- Olga M.

"Done To Perfection"

"Had my wife's birthday brunch there and they didn't disappoint at all. Everything was on point and done to perfection. Our waiter Toopkra was on point with everything and everyone. Me new spot. Worth the drive from long Island."

"Best Birthday"

"This past Saturday me and my family went here to celebrate my sisters 60 birthday and when I tell you this was the best choice I could have made. This was the first time being at this restaurant and our server IFE was the best he handled this big party alone with grace and patients he deserves a raise I love IFE. This was my first time making reservations here and it won’t be my last. My sister said this was her best birthday, thank you."

- Matthania L.

"Kind & Accommodating"

"I absolutely love this restaurant. Tastefully decorated, clean and relaxing ambience. Service with a smile from entry to exit. What a beautiful place! The food was supreme! Hats off to the chef. The servers were so kind and accommodating. Sang happy birthday to me with a lighted candle and the best strawberry Cheesecake I've ever had. This was a wonderful experience. I will return. Google has asked me to update my review and tell how it has changed from my previous experience 4 mths ago. It has not changed! Everything is perfect. The food and hospitality is outstanding. Ten stars."

"Beautiful Atmosphere"

"Once you step in the atmosphere here is beautiful. Decor and all. It's a pretty big space so thankfully getting a table was not a problem for us. Our entrees were great! I loved my lamb chops and also the appetizers. The drinks here were definitely strong. Overall, I loved my experience here."

"Great Place"

"Great place to come as a group. Long connected tables available. Service was great, food was delicious and delivered super fast. Place was decorated in fall-halloween decor. Covered outdoor sitting available as well. The lamb and shrimp dishes we tried were delicious. So was desert as well. Will definitely come back again."

- Malosia L.

"Turkish Culture"

"Were there recently! Amazing service and food as always! The atmosphere is more suitable for evening visits so if you want to enjoy all true colors or Turkish culture come at evening. Food is also decent size portions, sometimes prices can bite but you receive what you pay for."

- Adventurer.

"Brunch, Lunch or Dinner"

"Love this place for brunch lunch or dinner! Spacious, gorgeous decor. The waiters are very nice but sometimes hard to flag down when you are looking for the check. They definitely don't rush you out!"

- Deanna F.

"Food Was Delicious"

"We came here to celebrate my mom's birthday, since Opera was always one of her favorites. The food was delicious, as always, and this time we tried Kunefe for desert, which positively put us into a "food coma" for the next couple of hours, Highly recommend!"

- Yelena M.

"Excellent Place"

"Excellent place to eat; hang out; have coffee and enjoy the water view as well. Not too pricey and they do not try to get rid of you like some other places do with the 90 minute rule. So definitely go and enjoy!"

- King S.

"Great Cocktails"

"Stunning ambiance, fabulous Turkish food, great cocktails, and family friendly. Looks small from the outside, but it's very big inside. Pleasantly surprised. Will go again."

"Great place to meet friends, have a breakfast or any other occasion while in the Sheepshead Bay area. I like their Salmon Scallopini (one of a kind) and Kumpir, and today tried Eggs Benedict classic with smoked salmon. Delicious! Outdoors is also nice to enjoy your meal and convo during the sunny warm day. Good place with good meals."

- Alexandra K.


"Get the lamb shank, you are making a mistake every time you don’t order it when you’re here. I think about it all the time, the way the meat falls off the bone is just mesmerizing. The service has always been incredible when I dine at Opera. Vegetarian options: There is a savory crepe-like dish with beans that is pretty good! Dietary restrictions: There are vegetarian and vegan options! Kid-friendliness: Lots of families dine here with kids of all ages."

- Emily F.

"Five Star Quality"

"The service is so impeccable here & they really go above & beyond for their customers!! Thank you so much for truly bringing that to the area. I love your Caesar dressing it’s the best one so far around here and then I happen to try the Tres leches cake which blew me away. It’s absolutely amazing and so moist. All I could say is five star quality."

- Ladysaba.

"Indoor & Outdoor Seating"

"Been here 3 times and I recommend them. Food is good, good portions and nicely cooked, and price is decent. Services is also good, not many places like this actually pours your wine from the bottle to all guests that are enjoying a glass. That was huge unexpected plus for me and my guests. Atmosphere is good, people and very layback, nice indoor and outdoor sitting. Staffs are welcoming."

- Wein L.

"Perfect Ambiance"

"The food is absolutely delicious and the drinks are incredible. The pictures don’t do it justice. The ambiance is perfect for a nice night out. We came on a Thursday where there was a dj and percussionist. Cool vibes!. Love Mediterranean vibes , plenty space for outdoor and indoors parties."

- Kristina B.

"Didn't Regret"

"The first time I was here and I didn’t regret. I like the atmosphere and food of course. I will definitely want to return maybe dinner someday."

"Fresh & Well Made"

"I’ve been coming here for years. Recently came and was surprised about service and quality of food! The liver cubes are fresh and well made! And it’s a good portion to have it as a meal. Shepherd salad was fresh. Baked potato with Oliver salad was amazing. Draft beer was fresh too! Freshly made bread with butter. Excellent! And service was amazing, never seen that tall server before and forget to asked his name! Thanks. Definitely recommend to visit this place and they do open late hours."

- Kate M.

"Good Time"

"If you are looking for a quiet but fun night out with a few friends, close to home and not too noisy, then this is a great spot. Order a few drinks and some food and enjoy the view. If your with your buddy's in the area, definitely stop by and enjoy the time. I come here often and love the vibe. If the weather is nice you can sit outside. or you can choose to sit inside if you hate New York's out doors. 8/10 would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to have a good time."

- Leo L.

"Loved The Menu"

"This was our first time at this restaurant and it was a wonderful experience. My family of 4 including two young children visited Opera. We ordered our food from the server and it came out about 10 minutes later. Much quicker than we expected. The food all tasted great. We loved the menu options and it was very children friendly. Chocolate pancakes with a scoop of ice cream(Yes Please!) It was one of the best hospitality I have ever received. It's always difficult travelling with young children but their service and accommodation made things very enjoyable for us. We wil be back!"
