I like this place.
I like the wait staff, the ambience, the music. Nice space upstairs for private events. Great salmon skewers.
The one negative: the desserts. Not really my type of desserts.
Good admosphere, nice waitstaff, nice happy hour menu. Although, I didn't like their pizza, the person that gave them no pros sounded like the competition more than a customer. It's a good place to go to eat.
Oh so yummy!. My family and I absolutely love this place! This neighborhood joint has got it right. Their food is incredible, and because you loved it so much last time it's hard to get something different than what you enjoyed previously. But the creative specials never fail to impress me even more than my menu favorites, so try one when you go in. The service has never been anything but excellent, being attentive, knowledgable, and charismatic. One of the owners is also the Market Master of the large Beaverton Farmers' Market that happens just a few miles away, ensuring the variety of local, fresh, cruelty free food that is yet another factor that brings our family back to JoPa again and again. Portion sizes are great and they have the best lemon drop in town. Obviously we highly recommend Jopa for lunch, dinner, or catering. They do onsite or offsite catering that is professional and flexible (which you can explore on their website joparestaurant(dot)com). We have had a birthday party there and we just did a holiday party at home (before the snow came:) that both were loved. Classic great place to go!
I love this place!. I've been here several times with friends and co-workers, and even rented out their upstairs "party" room for a work function. Never, not once, have I had a bad experience. Great food, good prices, great service, good sized portions all add up to a great experience I would go back for again and again -- but not on Mondays -- they're closed Mondays!
JOPA is FABULOUS!.
Jopa's food is ALWAYS great. We have been dining there off and on for years. If they had breakfast, we'd go, too.
Happy hour food is great and $2.95...can't go wrong.
THEY have HALF PRICE BOTTLES OF WINE on TUESDAYS! Yes, that's right, we were amazed when we ordered a bottle of wine and the server said, hey...you are going to get half off that. We weren't sure what she meant. Perhaps half off an entree? NO, the bottle of wine was half price!
Well, I am a loyal customer anyway, but now I want to tell everyone about this. In times like this, we all need to tighten our belts, but still want to enjoy an affordable meal out. And throw in a bottle of wine for half price..take the rest home, you just can't go wrong.
I should mention their food is really outstanding (as I said, we've been going for years). We have always received excellent, professional service and on a rare occasion (every restaurant has it happen): if the food was not right, they apologized and fixed it right away!
So, the moral of the story:
WINE BOTTLES HALF OFF with entrees TUESDAYS. Great food, too!
VIVA JoPa!!!. I don't give out kudo's that arn't well deserved, but JoPa rightly deserves a platter of raves. We've been to this hidden treasure three times now and, with every visit we vow to return again as soon as possible. Why travel and fight parking in downtown P-town when there's this culinary delight right below Hillsdale? The ambiance of JoPa is unique, open and very comfortable. Everything we've had on the menu has been freshly superb to perfection. We've taken our kids there and, dined alone. My wife discovered JoPa when she attended a dinner conference in their upper floor meeting rooms. Their creative chef has crafted a menu that appeals to all tastes, flavors and moods. After dining at Jopa, I feel as if I've been to a different time and city, but it's still in Portland...and you owe yourself a visit.
Very Good Italian Restaurant. Went to Jopa for the first time. It was very good. The five of us divided up five different entrees and all of them were things I would get again. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. To the person who wrote the previous e-mail about brunch, you should try Seasons and Regions on Capitol Hwy. Saturdays or Sundays. Their brunch is outstanding.
Great Serivce and Food every time!. We love this neighborhood place. it is adorable inside. Clean facility, excellent service and I've always had a great meal here. I appreciate that they use local produce and support local businesses. Their menu is well-thought-out and creative. Great drinks and a good wine list that is reasonably priced, unlike most Portland restaurants! Portions are really nice - not too much that you feel totally gross after - but you are definitely full. Good French fries. I wish this place would open for brunch though - I bet they cod do a great job and we need another GOOD brunch spot (like Marco's) on this side of town.
Not great this time. Having been to Jopa several times and always enjoyed it, I was very dissapointed this last time. My family (7 of us and 2 little ones) went for pre Mother's day. Our waitress was great. The food was not good. Our food was cold and my garlic mashed potatoes were runny and too heavy on the garlic. The sausage lasagna was not a favorite and the rockfish was bland. I will give it another try next month, but if it continues to same, Jopa may be off my list. My drink a Huckleberry Lemon drop was awesome.
Great place any night of the week. JoPa is a fun neighborhood restaurant for almost any occasion. You can go dressed up or just go casual, which is nice. They've got good pizzas and beers, and also their 2.95 happy hour is a steal. We got the miniture hamburger shooters and the calamari- both were great.. Everything on the menu sounds good so its hard to decide what to get. All the servers I've had have been really nice and very accomodating for my pickier friends. I would definately recomend JoPa, especially for the people who don't want to deal with the hassle of going downtown.
