About Opa

Opa Restaurant was founded in 2003 by Chef Joseph Karam and his family.

Joe introduced Opa to the historic Federal Hill in hopes of sharing his family's culture cuisine and hospitality. Opa's consistent traditional Lebanese cooking and the family's hospitality has lead Opa to be a gem in Rhode Island's food industry with visitors traveling from all over New England to try a Taste of Lebanon.

Our Team

"We value our customers and we treat them like family. I came to this country with my wife and kids and have been blessed enough to develop a fantastic team inside the kitchen and outside on the floor to continually serve the best food we can. We have created an Opa Family that is continually growing by the day. Come join our family for dinner at Opa!"
