  • Best restaurant I've ever been to
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    I must say, the 801 group of restaurants is by far the best out there. The food is superb. I have been to many fine restaurants in large cities, and this one tops all of them by far. Is it expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? Yes! There are many expensive restaurants out there that make you wish you had gotten more for your money...not here. The filet, crab cakes and Caesar salad are my favorite.

    The menu here offers many different flavors. I was a little surprised by the prices- definitely great food, but still a little strong. The wedge salad was lacking in amount of actual blue cheese crumbles and bacon was undercooked. The ahi was great- although a bit off with what tasted like chili powder. Side dishes were greens beans and blue cheese potatoes- wonderful. We also ordered a 6oz filet- which was prepared perfectly. Also a very nice cocktail selection. I would definitely go back, but for the high prices- the highest in Omaha- its hard not to expect perfection.

    We had a group of five for dinner and the restaurant was busy. The service was good but the food was average. Everyone agreed that their starters and the sides were good. We especially enjoyed the wedge salad and the creamed spinach. The cocktails were great and that helped the evening. The problem was the steaks. The rib-eye is very expensive and both people at our table who had it said it wasn't good. I had the filet medallions which were good but nothing extraordinary. It was a very expensive dinner and no one walked away thinking that it was worth the money. I will try some of the other steak restaurants the next time I am in Omaha.

    This was our first visit to 801 Chophouse and we definitely be returning. We had a great server and outstanding filet mignon-cooked to perfection with brown butter gnocchi and grilled asparagus. I would highly recommend the Grand Marnier souffle for dessert. You need to order at the start of the night since it is made fresh for each order.

    It was a bit noisy and needs some decor to deaden the echo. The filet was overcooked and well done burned on the outside and dry on the inside. I asked for pink in the middle but not raw so med well. Make sure you order on the side. The mashed potatoes were excellent. The green beans were lacking in green beans. There were more thick bacon cuts than anything and way too much grease. THe waitstaff could be a little more friendly but maybe they are suppose to be only professional and not as friendly. I was full but probably won't visit again.

    Unfortunately, we let ourselves get talked into the lux steaks... While I'm aware there is unlikely to be any steak worth $76, this was bad. My steak was pale (like nearing pork-white, not vibrant red), sinewy, and tough to cut. I realize the most flavorful cuts have more marbling and more fat, and are near the bone, but nothing about this steak screamed luxury. It was a tragic selection that shouldn't have been offered, and a steak that looked like mine should not have been served. Don't they have quality control?

    This was our 2nd time. We loved the first visit except the prime rib (which was huge) was not as good as I had hoped. This time we tried the fried calamari and it was the best I've ever eaten; outstanding! The boursin mashed potatoes and creamed corn were very good. The pineapple sorbet was excellent! Our medium ribeye (I like med-rare, but the wife likes medium) looked a little thin and was overcharred, but still cooked to medium as ordered. I like a good char, but not burned. My wife said it looked and tasted burned to her. I also expected a more tender ribeye for prime. We shared the steak and it wasn't bad, but for a $52 steak, I want it to be a lot better than what I've made in the past at home on my own grill.

    Food is the best steak spot in town. Service was excellent, knowledgable, and provided the right balance between needs and to much presence. With the preface that I am older both chronologically and in expectations, I believe there should be a minimum dress code--shorts, tee shirts and the like detract from the exclusivity of the experience. , particularly in the context of the prices. This is an expensive restaurant for Omaha. There has been a great deal of personnel turnover. Hopefully not sounding arrogant, as someone who has frequented the restaurant many times since it's opening, it always strikes me that other than the few long terms employees, I do not feel welcomed as a long term client.

    This is probably my 15th time at 801 Chophouse and every time I go I am impressed all over again. On this visit, our server, Michael, was incredible and tailored the service directly to us. He was fun and friendly to joke around with, but also had the professionalism that you would expect from such as place. When he told us the specials for the evening and how incredible they were, you could tell that he had tried them before and was giving his honest recommendation.

    We had an excellent time-It was a redemption as our last visit here was a disaster, Our previous experience our waitress didn't put in our order. After an hour of waiting and seeing other tables served and also trying to see our waitress to ask, the mgr came to our table to explain what had happened. No compensation was given--we had to leave with no food to attend a performance at the Holland, hungry. Our waitress this time was very good and was experienced. The only reason we even gave it a second try is our son/daughter-n-law had a nice time a few months previously. The first visit could have been handled much better by this restaurant. I will also say we received our Open Table conf the next morning after our dinner. Not timely.

Jake, the manager, came to our table and asked how the food and service was, a nice touch. The steaks were some of the best I have tasted in Omaha, the panchetta wrapped scallops melted in my mouth. The Maytag (blue cheese) potatoes were fabulous. We also had the chocolate soufflé and it was very good too. This is fine dining...excellent service...nice presentations, and a very classy establishment. Highly recommended!!!

    The food is very good, however overpriced. The food is no better than the Zin room or Sullivan's, two of our favorites that are more reasonably priced. The cheapest bottle of wine on the wine list is $65 so be prepared to spend $200 for two people if you want a bottle of wine with your meal. If you want appetizers or salad add another $50.
