OpenTable Diner (Chicago)
5.0  Dined on December 19, 2017

I had never been to Ovie, even though I have been taking the train to Ogilvie for years. I needed a restaurant that was near my new office on Riverside Plaza and could seat 12 people during the holidays. I did my reservation online through OpenTable and put in the comments that I would like to have a quieter section of the restaurant if possible, so we could hear each other without shouting. When we arrived, we were brought into a private room with a giant square table. It was amazing. And I was not charged extra. What a lovely surprise. After lunch the manager asked how things were and he told me when he read my reservation comment, he figured he'd give us the nice room. Thank you!! Now, as far as the food goes, that was another pleasant surprise. I ordered the hummus and calamari appetizers for the group, and they were great. For entrees, everyone happened to order either a salad or a burger, even though the menu has a nice selection of entrees, and everyone was pleased. The service was also fantastic, and so are the prices. I feel like I've been missing out on this place for years, simply because I viewed it as some bar in a train station. I highly recommend it for a really nice meal.

Chef Jose uses all fresh products which shows in the amazing taste of the menu items.

Wanted someplace different and this worked out fine. tucked away under the train tracks, cozy and private with excellent food and drink I plan to add to my go to list.

Made a reservation for an early evening dinner and was not at all disappointed. Food and beer were really good. It was fun to sit and listen to the trains low rumble above as they came and went from the station. The noise did not overwhelm conversations. Have to like a place that has a picture of the great Mavis Staples on the wall.

Recommend the Ahi Tuna salad. I'm looking forward to trying other seafood and appetizers.

We told the hostess that we wanted a quite table and not only did they seat us out of the way, they asked us if they should turn the music down. Very thoughtful and efficient waiter as well!

Really like this restaurant for lunch. Good menu and friendly service. Have booked reservations on 2 occasions using Open Table. Even told them upon arrival. Later received emails from Open Table that we didn't honor our reservation. Ovie should correct this recurring problem.

I didn't like the food. The Reuben was cold and so were my fries. The people that had the chicken soup said it was really good. I would go back, but only for a beer.

Consistently great food. Love the location. In warm weather there is a nice area to sit outside.

I have been to Ovie several times, and it never disappoints both in great food and in staff friendliness. I highly recommend.

This is a hidden gem for a casual business lunch. Quick service, nice menu and central location. Tables are spread out so you can have private conversation. And it's not super noisy and crowded. I'll be back for sure.
