Ophelia's on the Bay Review

Florida the way it should be: you can watch as dolphins swim past while blue herons lounge on the dock. Enjoy the flowering gardens while dining alfresco on the outdoor patio on its dock at Market #48 or in one of two casually elegant dining rooms. An ever-evolving menu highlights the Florida surroundings with selections such as Gulf of Mexico hog snapper with cracked pepper and orange honey, and Chilean salmon with blueberry lavendar sauce. The tuna (bigeye, yellowfin, and more) is flown in from Hawaii thanks to owner Jane Ferro, who is also the grandniece of the restaurant's namesake.

    Ophelia's on the Bay Review

    Horrible experience!!!! Bridse & Grooms: this is YOUR SPECIAL day. Please do not ruin it by allowing Ophelia's to host your reception.Ophelia's had my (the bride) name spelled wrong on my menu for the reception. Stan (the owner) and I had spoken often, via email as well as over the phone so there was no reason for my name to have been misspelled. The spelling of my name was not just off by a couple of errors but my entire name, from the beginning to end was incorrect. It saddened me that Ophelia's did not care enough about their service to double check and refer back to emails, etc for the proper spelling of my name. When I brought the error to the owners attention; his response was very rude and even went as far as blaming me for the mistake he and his staff made. Not to mention- the night before my wedding reception, my family and I wanted to view our setup for the reception and the owners brother was very rude and raised his voice at my family and I- stating that he didn't have time to deal with us and that we needed to not bother him during his busy hour!! Again, Brides & Grooms; this is YOUR SPECIAL day. Please do not ruin it by allowing Ophelia's to host your reception.
