The food at the flatiron is delicious. It is always well prepared and good quality. The service is excellent. This is a lovely place to share a meal with that special person.

I was so excited to try this restaurant and left very disappointed. I ordered a surf and turf special and it was below average. Our meal was beyond overpriced compared to the quality of the food, the service was slow and frustrating, and overall a very special evening turned in to a pretty big disappointment.

We love the Flatiron. The only bad thing about it, is it's not open on Sunday. We love the location, and the detailed servers. I want to feel special and attended to when I go out to do dinner. We've never had bad food or bad service there. I love where it's located. I asked my husband what's his favorite... More

The Flatiron Cafe is a first-class restaurant, an excellent choice for a special occasion. Service is professional and congenial, and the food is exceptional. My wife and I were here for a special occasion (50th anniversary), and the meal did not disappoint. We had the poached lobster and the sea bass, and both were delightful. After asking whether we were... More

Omaha has a wonderful reputation as a great "eating out" city; and it's places like the Flatiron that make that possible. Food and service are exemplary, it's difficult to find any other place in Omaha that can surpass the Flatiron. And while it can be pricey for special occasion dining, there are menu options that make it possible to eat... More

This location is quaint. Lots of character. Allegedly an old hide out for Chicago Mafia who found themselves in Omaha. The service was great, which was no small feet as we were a table of 13. The steak was cooked perfectly. It was such a treat. My favorite experience in Omaha. It is a little pricey, but worth it if... More

We ate at Flatiron Cafe back in May and knew we wanted to eat there again during this trip. There is always a chance that a return trip might not live up to the expectations, but this was not the case. We again had an amazing meal and service. My husband went with the ribeye, I had the sea bass,... More

Flatiron Cafe is truly a gem in downtown Omaha. It's a nice, intimate setting with AMAZING food. The service is nothing but exceptional as well. I highly recommend, as this is definitely on my list of top restaurants in Omaha. This would be a wonderful place to celebrate an anniversary or anything super special. I'd also recommend making reservations, especially... More

Picked the Flatiron as the place to celebrate our completing the National Triathlon Championships - perfect choice. The food was delicious and inventive. The wait staff extremely attentive. The wine list (and advice from the sommelier) was spot on. The desserts, even after an enormous meal, were worth savoring. We could not have asked for a better place for the... More
