The Ogden Chicago Ratings and Reviews

The food was great! Everything was delicious. The only downside was our waitress seemed less than thrilled to be working that day. She wasn't overly rude or anything, just didn't seemed enthused to be serving us.

Disappointed in the food. Wings were average even though they claimed they were highly rated. Animal Fries were a huge disappointment. They should so good on paper but when we got them the fries were extremely mushy due to this weird tasting salsa that was put on top.

Went for a hockey game, parking convenient, food good,staff friendly,drinks fairly priced.
Easy walk to and from game. Place did get a little crowded closer to game time and things slowed down a little re: service, but nothing terrible. Next Hawk game I will be there.

Service was fair, for a "Chef-driven" menu... food was poorly seasoned (flat bread pizza), mediocre bar food at best. Waited 40 minutes for three sliders and a burger. Fries they brought were not was ordered, cold and mostly burnt little pieces. Only redeeming quality was the valet parking for $15 and a two block walk to the United Center for the Blackhawks game.

This bar/restaurant is typical of those near the United Center - acceptable food, over-priced for what it is and not really very good. TERRIBLE SERVICE!! It would be great if someone opened a restaurant near the United Center that was actually REALLY GOOD! We attend several Bulls & Hawks games throughout the year and this place is typical of most in the area.....average (or below average) at best! We will not return!

We absolutely love this place - each experience is better than the previous one. We also really appreciate that a reservation is a reservation and we do not have to wait to be seated upon arrival.

This is my 4th time at the Ogden. I have gone with friends and with clients prior to events at the United Center. I have had the same experience each time. The beer list is great, food always tastes good but the service is lacking. We always seem to have to wait long times for food and items ordered always seem to be forgotten. The place is a great location and staff is always friendly just be prepared to wait. The most recent trip we waited for 50 minutes for 1 order of sliders.

You have got to be kidding me!!! Ordered two burgers (with a side of bacon) and they brought out two regular cheese burgers.. I addressed the issue, of the no-bacon on the burgers, and they said ok. Would you like to order two new burgers?
Or would just like the side of Bacon.
We chose . To just order the side of bacon.
Sooooo after 10 minutes bacon was not sent to us. We addressed to them ( bartenders) that we wanted new burgers, they took the old ones back and get this.. they brought them back with bacon(still cold burgers) with in two minutes I might add , and replaced the fries with a few hot ones and kept the cold ones as if we didn't recognize that.. we all have had bad customer service in our life but DAAAAAMMMM!! THIS WAS ABSOLUTELY HORRIFIC. We come here weekly. Sometimes 2 to 3 times a week. too often to receive this kind of treatment! Moreover, for the waitresses who took our order to act as if nothing happened is even more disrespectful!!

The food and service were good. It was a bit dark inside and loud. The garlic buffalo wings were awesome! We ate here before seeing a show at The United Center, valet parking is a bonus! FYI...if you are seeing a show and want a specific item, make sure to order before they give you a limited menu (an hour before show) is when we were told about this limited menu. We weren't too happy about the limited menu because we weren't told a head of time. We did get to meet and get a picture with Tom Skilling though! Another bonus! Enjoy!

The food was very good. However, if you only have two for dinner and don't want to eat at a small coffee table while sitting on a sofa, look elsewhere. Our reservations were at 6:30 but we weren't allowed to sit at a 4 top. When we left at 7:15 there were still many 4 tops unused. This was our second visit to the Ogden but unless I have a larger group I won't return.

The food is pretty good at The Ogden. This was a return visit for us and another couple. Our "waiter" took the other couples appetizer order and promptly walked away. When the kitchen employee brought their order, we asked to see our waiter. He returned and took our appetizer order then our friends entree order and promptly walked away. My girlfriend tracked him down to place our order. That was the last we saw of him. The kitchen employee served us and freshened our drinks. We had to find the manager to get our bill afterwards. Worst service I have ever seen at any restaurant. We have had better service there in the past.

Was in town with my fiance' for a concert at the United Center and met with a cousin and his fiance'. This was a great place to grab a beer and eat some great bar food. Great for sports and is full of young, energetic people. Would come again if in the area.
Poor service prior to the concert. I und ...
Poor service prior to the concert. I understand that there are a lot of people that come through but the bar does not have enough service staff behind the bar. Two extra people would probably alleviate the long backups. Also, two days in a row our server, different people, were somewhat rude in the manner they took the order. I like this place because it is so close to the United Center but one more bad experience and I'm going to The West End where I have had great experiences every time.

Stopped in with friends before a concert at the United Center. Perfect location to walk over to the concert. The Ogden kept our car in valet for the duration of the concert. We just came back and retrieved it after. Avoided the United Center parking and traffic altogether. Food was great. Cocktails even better. Upscale sports bar with energetic, urban feel. Great place for dinner, drinks, and before & after United Center events.
When I made reservation with Open Table ...
When I made reservation with Open Table was given the option of 5 pm or before, or 7 pm or after. My preference was 6 pm because we were going to a 730 pm concert. I took 5 pm reservation. There was NO ONE even there eating when we arrived and when we left at 630 very few guests arrived. Wish could have made the reservation time wanted. I already knew the food was great because have been there before. Our server was not very attentive which was somewhat frustrating.
Great place for a Hawk's game!
We were recommended to come here before a Hawk's game. It was a short walk to the United Center, and the place itself was nice, clean, and great for Hawk's fans. The food was excellent, and the drink options are numerous. I would recommend this to anyone for before during or after a Hawk's game.
