Ate here while visiting our son and daughter-in-law. The portions are huge. Everyone loved their entrée. We were seated promptly (I recommend a reservation) in an uncomfortable booth. Son is 6'5" and had no leg room and complained about the back. Our server was friendly and came back often to check on us. I think any item on the menu... More

I stopped here for happy hour with a friend, we had two different cocktails and both were really good and we had the tater tots, they are highly recommended. The bartender was really nice, she was really quick, knew a lot about the cocktails and recommended the tater tots. I can't comment on the food other than the happy hour... More

Love this restaurant! Great menu! Love the pork taco appetizers and had a fabulous wedge salad! Main dish was sea bass and had lots of crunchy veggies and was in a miso sauce. Loved it! Small, intimate and noisy! Its known for being noisy so we were expecting it ! Loved the peach cobbler for desert!

Had a Thursday evening meal for two at the restaurant. Chose familiar Cobb salad and an order of bolognese with a glass of white wine. Bill with tip and tax was $55. The food was tasty. The service was adequate. The space for two was tight, seated close to others on a row of tables facing a wall booth. Our... More

Love this place. A little pricey but worth it. Service excellent, especially Meghan. Food is just a great combination of flavors. In my opinion, stands alone in Omaha.

Dinner for 4 couples. New and old friends. Very attentive service. Good wine list. Great offerings, especially the specials. I had the Chilean sea bass with vegetable pot stickers- very tasty! Appetizers included a platter of sautéed calamari and a flatbread dish. Also very good.

Food, wine and atmosphere are the keys to this place's specialness for me. And that's why we went there on our anniversary. But service has consistently been only "okay". But last week was not a "totally satisfying customer service experience" (as we say in my job). I had to seek out the manager -- the server was seldom around -... More

We have been here several times and always have had a delicious meal with wonderful service. Really like the ambience, a bit noisy but not so that it impedes conversation.

Interestingly unique food! Leg of lamb was very tasty and presented with flair, Crispy schnitzel very tender and tasty. Salads nice and fresh with no preservatives on lettuce. Very generous portions. While the noise level quite high our conversation was at it's limit. We were by the door which made worse. Overall, comfortable surroundings with efficient service.
