I can’t wait to go back. I was a little concerned upon arrival as the noise level was high and the tables are seated very close together. Once we got settled, though, we were able to hold our own conversation clearly and did not even notice the patrons in either side. So many incredible write ups with unfamiliar ingredients. The staff offered many suggestions. We savored each bite from the appetizers to dessert. I can’t stop thinking about our meal. Spectacular! More

My daughter and I went and enjoyed the casual atmosphere as well as our delightful and helpful server, Lindsey! She suggest 5 or 6 plates and 5 was perfect. We both thought the menu was pretty slight with selections but we were not disappointed. The pomelo salad - refreshingly good, Onion soup - rich & filling, braised goat tostada - surprisingly delicious, a couple specials not on the menu: Venison loin - unbelievably tender and yummy, seafood risotto - decadent. Dessert did not disappoint either! The beignets are fabulous and we finished as we started with the citrus parfait! All in all a definite place we will return to and try some of the other things on the menu! More

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. More

I am hesitant to give this place a good review because I selfishly don't want people realizing that it's great. Pretty good brunch deals, huge portions, and service is usually great. It has a bunch of TV's but isn't really a sports bar, has some interesting food but isn't really a snobby food place. Great brunch and the after work drink. More

It was a very erratic ambiance. We stumbled across this place as it was a last minute decision. It was the only place that had availability for 4 on a Saturday night. It was odd. they kept dimming the lights and turning it back on...this happens at least 3 times. The sliders and burgers come in 3s...the waitress told us the manager cannot add on an extra slider even for an extra charge(what!!!!!?). We ended up getting garlic shrimp instead. The beers were free with a yelp check in for each person...that was a super nice perk. We tried the grilled octopus which was good but tad over done. The mussels were pretty amazing....ask for extra bread to soak the spicy garlicky broth. I think it was the game broth for the gambas al ajillo. I personally didn't care for the artichoke dip....it reminded me of sour cream onion chips too much. I love lays sour cream onion potato chips but won't want that flavor it in a nice tapas style restaurant. Service was spotty...it felt like more of a bar than restaurant. More
