We have been here dozens of times over the past few years; the kitchen was off this visit. The Chateaubriand was quite good. The seasonal risotto was watery and flavorless. The veggies were over-cooked and mushy. The salads were lovely. The server forgot our appetizer....More

Ophelias is on the expensive side, but it is a great place to eat for a special occasion. The food is always exceptional, and it is refreshing to eat at a non-chain restaurant. Worth it!

Expensive but worth every penny. Loved the food and atmosphere. Waiter/waitresses are very attentive and never have to ask for anything.

Overlooking the historic Independence Square, Ophelia's offers an infusion of cultural flavors in an eclectic American menu. The steaks, seafood, duck, and lamb are a few of our guest's favorite items. Layers of flavors contribute to all of the dishes we serve. You will find the atmosphere casual, yet romantic at the same time. Ophelia's in Independence is truly a gem off the beaten path.
