Classy Place

A very classy place for drinks and dinner - the clientele there is definitely of the upper lip, higher class, and it was quite packed at 7PM last night (the crowd filtered out by 8:30 or so, maybe they all left to catch a show at the opera or something). We had nowhere to go after dinner so we took our time and enjoyed our meal.

The service was nice & friendly - we had a good time chatting and catching up over our very tasty meal.

Theater District Restaurants

For the theatre crowd - fast service, reasonably priced, good Chinese food. Recommended.

Fast service, average food

This place is the tourist fav of chinese food in the city, the service was fast, but the taste of the food is average, too much starch used in dishes, and the flavors of different dishes are very similar, can't really tell the difference.

My new fave place

the place is crowded and LOUD, but the food is very good. they have various buns, which you can't find at most fast food joints and great authentic noodle soups.

I usually am a Chinese food snob -- no chain restaurants, but truly, the food here is delicious!

The ol' standby General Zhou's is awesome, and the sauteed string beans are to die for!

Unique Spare Ribs & Fantastic...

...Scallion Pancakes. Their Spare Ribs are delicious, they are short little 2-inch ribs, but they are truly unique in that they taste as if they were marinated/basted in wine. Just delicious. I've eaten at Chinese Restaurants all over NYC my whole life (I grew up here) yet Ollie's is the first (the ONLY) that serves Spare Ribs that taste like this. And their Scallion Pancake with dipping sauce is INCREDIBLY delicious. Good texture to it too. Not too crispy/crunch and not soft either. Scallion Pancake Perfection. Oh, and their other dishes/meals are good too. Quite good.

Tasty for Times Square

Ollie's provides tasty and quick chinese dishes, with enough choices to please the pickiest eater (including vegetarians!). It's a popular pre-theatre spot, and is usually pretty crowded so don't expect a quiet place for two, but it is delicious and quick. With rotating discs on the center of the larger tables (allowing for you to share dishes), hanging ducks, and a cheerful decor it's definitely a place you should stop while visiting the Times Square area. I recommend the vegetable won tons and the sesame noodles, but you really can't go wrong with anything, and it's not overpriced.

Good pre-theater

This place is good if you want a no frills no wait pre-theater dinner. The food is surprisingly good and comes out in about 5 minutes. The service leaves a lot to be desired, they are fast but not at all friendly. Our waitress kept zipping by our table and we barely got out our order before she ran away. We asked the hostess for a booth and she said they were for parties of 4 not 2, and then proceeded to seat a pair there not 10 minutes later. Overall - a good experience.

Pleasantly Surprised!

I have read many of the reviews stating ""poor this or poor that""! We were in a hurry to grab a quick bite to eat and decided to ""take a chance w/Ollie's"". All in our party were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food & service, including a very ""picky"" vegetarian friend! I wouldn't rate it as highly as many Chinatown places, but all in all, this is a great place right here in Midtown! Definitely would go back again and again!
