Everything's a charge. $24 for 2 salad, $12 for 1 mixed drink, $12 for 2 corona, $12 for plate grilled sparagus, $10 for mash potato, $38 for salmon, $52 for ribeye steak. $25 gratuity. Of course then taxes.

    I had researched the restaurant briefly and the price ranges I saw were under what was actually observable. That being said, the service, experience, atmosphere, and especially the food, were all worthy of the high price. A very once in a while spot but ohhhhhhhh so good.

    Another patron gave us a coupon for free desert while they were exiting. As we were talking the waiter removed the ccoupon. We assumed that he would ask us what we wanted for our free desert - he never said a thing. I am sorry but we had ownership of that coupon at that point and he never inquired. We were going to share the deaserT. We had no interest in ordering a seperate item for each of us . This place is too classy for that behavior - besideS I dropped $450 at the place already.

    We had the bone marrow appetizer, prime rib, creamed corn and mushrooms with a couple of drinks each and the food was fantastic! Portions are generous. Best traditional prime rib dinner I've had in a long time. The prime rib was about 14-16 ounces and perfectly cooked. Not dry at all. Started off with some warm sour dough bread. I have nothing bad to say about it. The meal was as close to a 10 as you can get and my husband and I are foodies. The only thing that was missing was some Yorkshire pudding. :-). We highly recommend 801. Delicious!

    One of the best steaks ever, charred on the outside and cooked to perfection.The pork chop was the best ever. It was tender, juicy and flavorful. Never knew it was possible for a pork chop to have those qualities.

  • 801 Chophouse - great steakhouse
    WindyGroup
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    Visited the chophouse with two other business associates for a Saturday evening meal. Recommended by the hotel front desk as the best steakhouse in Omaha and it did not disappoint. Steaks were absolutely fantastic! Prepared spot-on for temperatures with a unique seared crust. Family style sides were also high quality. Even the bread was a cut above the usual found in a steakhouse. Be prepared to pay more than an average steakhouse ($40-$55 for steak - sides are a la carte) but definitely worth it for the tremendous quality.

    At a pricey restaurant, I assume that everything will be cooked perfectly and everything will be delicious, and that was not the case. The carrots were seriously al dente and the steaks were really at the low end of medium rare. But, even worse was the fact that the seasoning on the carrots was unappealing and the steaks were tough, fatty, and....bland. There was a great crust developed on the steak, but no great steak flavor. The creme brulee was good and the lobster tempura appetizer (daily special) was tasty, although being forewarned about it's price would have been nice. I was a little surprised that an appetizer cost MORE than an entree. Service was good as was the coffee, and I really enjoyed the potatoes. Won't be back.

    Absolutely the best food and restaurant experience we have had in Omaha! The food was perfectly prepared; the wine list included a tremendous selection; and the waitstaff offered professional and timely service. This place is pricey, but definitely worth it if you are looking to celebrate a special occasion. This place is an absolute must to visit during Omaha Restaurant Week because you get three incredible courses at one very reasonable price.

Our server made great recommendations for the group and the food was outstanding. If people are in Omaha looking for a top notch steakhouse experience, 801 is a great choice.

    As usuall, my steak is always perfect. Food is always excellent. I go to 801 quite a lot for work dinners. However, this is the first time I experienced poor service at least initially. We waited for an hour after being seated for the waiter to take our order. He seemed to avoid our table completely after we ordered a bottle of wine. I had to press the issue and get his attention. I announced rather loudly that we were ready to order now sir. He laughed annoyingly and he was irritated by it, but everything was perfect for the remainder of the evening.

    Our son requested 801 for his birthday and though it had been sometime since we had been there, knowing the ambiance is perfect for a rural livestock kid, we were expecting the usual top notch evening. However, the entire experience exceeded our expections on every level. The atmosphere is so "Omaha," the food exquisite, the service impeccable and the attentiveness was outstanding. From the birthday card on his plate, to the "Happy Birthday" lettering across our menus, & the perfect dinner, he couldn't have felt more pampered! Thank you Lloyd and 801 for a very special evening!

    My wife and I made reservations to eat at 801 Chophouse before the Eagles Concert. The food was fantastic. The corn and lobster chowder was better than I can describe here. I had a ribeye and my wife had the prime-rib and they were both excellent. The service was great. Our waiter was friendly and personable. It was more money than we would normally spend on a meal, but the experience and food were worth the price. I am looking forward to our next visit.

    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.

    Our first visit and very please. Dining tables were set very formal with white table clothes, nice crystal and serving pieces. Hour server was delightful, she explain the menu, and that we could split or have small portions. The Delmonico rib eye was excellent, cooked just right, med.rare. I order the Brussels sprouts, they were ok, wouldn't order again. There are so many other sides that would be much better. The best part of the meal was the soufflé for desert, have to order when ordering the meal. I will go back, save for a special occasion. Prices are high, still well worth a visit.

    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.

    Loved the cocktails at the bar prior to dinner. The steak at dinner was just OK - for the price, there are much better options in Omaha. The salmon dish was bland, so can definitely find a better choice. Will go back to enjoy the Grapefruit Martini and Shrimp Cocktail at the bar but will not stay for dinner.
