Great for meeting a large group for a drink. Can't beat the convenience for commuters. Dining recommended for much smaller groups, but the food is quite good and reasonably priced.

We went for 11:15 weekday lunch before 1:00 opera nearby. Restaurant practically empty when we got there, much busier when we left, but not full. After our food came, the waiter only checked back once for drink refills. I had to hunt him down at the cash register at 12:30. He never came to see if we wanted coffee and dessert, which we would have had. The grouper sandwiches and short rib flatbread were tasty. Ovie’s salad was overdressed with a dressing that was too sweet. Nothing there that would make me want to go back.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This was recommended by a friend and it was perfect for a business lunch. We were able to have a conversation without feeling disrupted, but without feeling like we were disrupting others too. The food was solid and would have had plenty of choices for any taste.

Convenient at train station. In the past the food has been very good with nice selections.
Now the selections are more limited and the quality of the food is just so-so.

For a simple business lunch, the server went on and on and on and on about so many specials. I'm sure the restaurant makes the staff do it, but it is irritating and way overboard. Mid-thought and while speaking to us, the server evidently didn't like that the adjacent table was seated with guests, and simply walked away / abandoned us to discuss with colleagues. Overall not a great experience. The food was fine.
