We had a pleasant time while on vacay. They have decent choice of food amd cocktails that suits our taste. In the end may not be dirt cheap but the vibe overall enjoyable.

We lucked out and snagged a little 2-seater table in the window, by the sidewalk, which made for a great atmosphere & people watching. The food was great, and when I was missing my chorizo, they brought out a plate of it, which was divine!...More

We popped in before dinner and had a couple of fantastic cocktails. We didn’t have food, but this place looks like a lot of fun, a stage for a band and a very large movie screen. But, the drinks were amazing.

Late reservation, Tuesday night. Not many people so we had our pick of a table after hostess tried to squeeze all six of us into a booth. Waitress was informative but not overly engaging or friendly. The food was ok, nothing was great nor horrible....More

I am not sure if they have a large private room, but would definitely recommend reservations for any party over 4

8000 Sq. Ft. Gastrobrothel features Vegetable Forward, Globally-Inspired Dishes and a Live Music Venue ‘Electric Soapbox.’ Ophelia’s has taken many forms: located in the historic 1894-era Victorian Airedale building, it was a brothel, turned peep show, turned adult video library. We serve as a restaurant, bar, and live music venue, with a boudoir-style decor that honors the building’s past; and Ophelia, the muse. Continuing the Edible Beats tradition of delicious, responsibly-sourced food, the upscale, gastrobrothel-inspired menu will include fresh, craveable takes on flatbread pizza, small plates, burgers, and shareable charcuterie boards.
