Delicious food, great drinks. The baba ganoush is fantastic, adana kabobs also. Others enjoyed the salmon and the Georgian Cheese Bread was amazing. Will definitely return!

We enjoyed the food and the service very much,but as more people came in it got too loud. We were going to have coffee and desert but we left and went to Lickety Split for ice cream instead.

Everything was wonderful - from drinks, to the food, to the staff. We received friendly service and they even threw in a birthday treat for my friends. The food was to die for (especially the meatballs). I cannot wait to come back here again.

We sat outside in the one wonderful little hut with the benches and it was perfection, since we got to say hi to all the dogs walking by. Exceptional service, delicious food and a fantastic evening overall. The adjaruli is off the chain and my new favorite splurge item. All the food was stellar.

Valentine’s Day dinner. Food was just meh. They forced a prix fix stating that they have high demand but really, that wasn’t true at all. Only saving grace was our waitress and we tipped her generously despite the food.

Delicious pita, spreads, Turkish tea, and shrimp! Enjoyed the traditional spreads (baba ganoush, hummus, etc) as well as several new spreads I tried for the first time. The coffee was extremely strong, but the tea was delicious. Highly recommend if you like med. food!

Everything was so tasty, the portions were plentiful and the service attentive even though we were sitting outside on the sidewalk. We appreciated the ability to eat outside even on a chilly night. The restaurant itself is beautiful inside and we look forward to eating inside on a return trip in safer times. Hopefully, the outside seating will be available until then because we hope to return soon!

Food was great. Their eggplant appetizers are a must. We also had beef stroganoff, which was expertly prepared and served with rice rather than noodles. The decor is decadent, with romantic lighting. Our only quibble was with the prices, which seemed to have gone up quite a bit with the menu change.

I went for your FABULOUS Iskender kebap...but they were no longer available. Also the bread was not the bread that used to be served. It was pita, but they weren't too bad.

Through its many incarnations & locations, Oda has remained a favorite if for no other reason than that it has the best eggplant dish in Chicago. Whatever you eat at Oda, get the mini eggplant roulades. They are bursting with flavor & show the reason that Georgian cuisine is so prized by those who know food. Even better they are vegan so all can enjoy. Oda also has the best ezme in the city, spicy & full-flavored but not sweet. Their falafel, hummus, babaganoush & dolma are all quite delicious & above the standard versions you will find elsewhere. Also delicious are the sigara boregi pastries & the pide, warm stuffed breads are out of this world but then so is the Imeruli Khachapuri, an excellent stuffed Georgian bread. All are improved by lovely Georgian wines. The new heaters at the outside tables mean we can patronize this place for as long as the weather allows so let's keep this beacon of Georgian food that soothes the soul busy in this pandemic.

The waiter was new and took no initiative to get answers to questions he didn’t know the answer to.

He started by telling us to expect slow service as they were really busy.

He didn’t know the menu and couldn’t pronounce most of it.

We're so glad we decided to try Oda. The food was really great and a welcome change from the "usual" served in Andersonville. Wonderful flavor blends, nicely presented. We starts by sharing a main dish as an appetizer, the grilled octopus. It was really nice and the "pickled sauce" accompanying it was spot on. My husband had the Beef Stroganoff, which is prepared with rice and the flavors were deep and outstanding. I had the lamb/beef, and although I'm not generally a lamb fan, this was very tasty. Now... the hummus. Oh, damn. Honestly the best I've ever had; like velvet with huge flavor. The young lady serving us made great recommendations, was quick and funny, and gracious. Highly recommended and we will be back.

Good food - we had adana Kebob & octopus. Took a while but they comped a glass of wine for our wait. Sat outside @ sidewalk table so don’t really know what the ambiance is like inside. Would go again & try more dishes next time.
