November 16, 2000 | S. IRENE VIRBILA, TIMES RESTAURANT CRITIC
"Are we, by any chance, going to Voda, that posh little bar somewhere along here?" the driver asked as we turned onto the 1400 block of 2nd Street. "It used to be a funky bar, but when I popped my head in one night to say hello to the bartender, that whole scene was gone. Unbelievable. Now it's so upscale it looks as if it dropped in from Manhattan. Beautiful martinis, though." That's the place.

Settling into a heavily padded patio chair at Opah in Aliso Viejo, a dinner companion looked around and said in surprise: "I thought this was going to be a Greek restaurant." The name "Opah" does indeed suggest the traditional exclamation made when Greeks dance or smash plates when they're in a party mood. It also is the name of a dark-fleshed ocean fish also known as the moonfish, which in Hawaii is said to bring good luck to fishermen.
