801 Chophouse at the Paxton
Overall excellent mealOur steaks were PERFECT. Hands down best ribeye I've ever eaten. My only complaint would be the level of garlic in the garlic mashed potatoes. I typically add plenty of seasoning to my potatoes, but these were just too much: they were so garlicky that they almost tasted spicy. Other than that, great service, fantastic setting, and the rest of the food was stellar. Thanks for a fantastic experience!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat romantic dinnerWent there to celebrate our anniversary, and both had the prime rib selection of the prix fixe dinner. They have a great single malt selection. Out waiter was very attentive, and the entire meal was first-rate. The only drawback was the after-dinner coffee, which was pretty average. The creme brulle, however, was to die for!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMromantic evening outMy husband took me to the 801 for my 40th birthday. It was so very nice. Great food!!! Very romantic!!! It was worth every penny paid :)
Thanks 801 for an awesome night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wineHas a great selection of wine but they are WAY WAY WAY to high, some of the same bottles around town are $80 and $100 cheaper, the place is always busy during the week not many people on the weekend, I understand you want to make it on the business people but you have no weekend business because of it, I go to Mahogany and Flemings often the prices are not that high and the places on the weekends are very busy, Place is very good but some food and the wine prices are high my opinion is getting that down you will get a lot more business from local people and you will make more money by more people coming back often. you don't have to make all the money the first time a little less makes people come back more and more6/6/2013 12:00:00 AM801 Chophouse a GemMy husband and I went to 801 Chophouse at the Paxton for our anniversary. The ambience of the restaurant is fantastic. Perfect for a special, romantic dinner, but also would be great for business dinners. The food is amazing. The steak was cooked to perfection as ordered and the sides were really good. We ordered the Lobster Corn Dogs as an appetizer. These are not to be missed! They might have been my favorite part of the meal. I highly recommend this steakhouse!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AM801 Chophouse - tremendous foodExcellent food. Very good service. Not particularly busy midweek.We were one of the only groups on a Thursday evening.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExquisite chop houseThe food was delicious, the service was great, and we enjoyed the atmosphere. We would go back again and definitely will recommend it to others. I've been in Omaha for 9 months and have been to many restaurants and this is the very best of all. There were three people in our group and we had different types of steak dishes and everyone was pleased.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways impressed.Great restaurant - competes with all the other top tier steakhouses in Omaha, but beats majority on overall experience. Couple times the cut of meat wasn't to my liking, but manager, waiter always work to make it right. Sides and dessert are very good. My friends, the wine snobs, rave about the selection. I have had business dinners in their larger separate room - awesome feel.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster Corn DogsEat the lobster corn dogs!!!! This was a great place to dine. I had a colleague in Omaha from Tokyo and wanted to take him to a great steak house. He was not disappointed with the ribeye steak, crab legs, calamari, corn dogs, or Peace Tree beer they had on tap. Great dinning experience and company.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery niceMy wife and I were celebrating our anniversary, and wanted to go somewhere special. The meal was first class. We were both very pleased with our choices, and our portions. It is very expensive, but I must say that it was worth it. The service was only ok. I think our waiter was very busy, so we may not have gotten quite as much attention. Overall, a great evening and we will definitely celebrate special occasions there again.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Graduation Night!MY family and I wanted someplace special to celebrate graduation. This place was perfect. The lighting provided a cozy atmosphere and the food was superb. I would recommend this place to anyone! Amazing night!

The NY Strip steak and filet we had were tender and cooked to perfection. The appetizer list is delicious and unusual. We had lobster corndogs, very good. The wine list is extensive as are the offerings from the bar.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid chophouseAmbiance: Lots of warm wood, pretty lighting, white table cloths, and light jazz & big band music.
Food: lobster tail was spectacular, filet was delicious and cooked perfectly, sides are chophouse-style, so made to share. We enjoyed the mushrooms, found the creamed spinach pretty standard, and the French fries were tasty. Chocolate soufflé was awesome!!
Service: exceptional from the greeting at the door to the special attention paid to the occasion we were celebrating.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steakhouse!Our first time to 801. Very good ala carte menu and fantastic aged steak. We will visit again!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notch steak and serviceEverything about our dinner was impressive, from the cocktails to dessert. The steaks were the best I've had in Omaha (or almost anywhere else), perfectly cooked and full of flavor. Our appetizer, salads and entrees were perfectly timed so we didn't feel rushed or forgotten. Our server Leah was friendly and personable, as well as efficient. Her wonderful service set the perfect tone for the evening.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Sunday night Prix Fix is amazing.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome!The service and food at 801 Chophouse at the Paxton was phenomenal! Everyone was extremely friendly and the special touches the restaurant added, from the personalized menu and receipt to the succulent steak and savory Chilean sea bass, made our anniversary very special.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak I had in OmahaBest steak I had in Omaha in 11 years. Look forward to next year !5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMService lacking...This is not creative "foodie" restaurant, but a great place if you are into steaks and good wine. My only issue is with the service. When the entrees arrived they were practically auctioned off - a server (not our waiter) came over with a plate of food, then announced what was on the plate and then looked around to see who would claim it. Lame. I think that the waiter can take a few seconds to clue the server in on who gets what. Also, the waiters removed glasses before we were done with our wine. At over $200 per bottle, I really *do* want to finish my wine. Overall, I expect better service for a dinner bill (for 6 people) of over $1200. As a caveat, this was the busiest weekend of the year - but service needs improvement.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!We came on a night when we were going to the Lied to a show. The service and food were OUTSTANDING! Probably some of the best we've ever encountered. The staff made sure we had an amazing dining experience and yet were mindful of time so we go to the show in perfect succession. My husband and I are "foodies" and we love a great wine list. Michael, our server, did everything possible to make our dining experience wonderful.....from giving us the history of the restaurant, to splitting our salad keeping the egg out of mine as he knew I didn't like it, to adding bacon to our au gratin potatoes after he learned that my husband loved bacon. Incredible attention to detail! And the best seafood bake and steak we've ever had! Wow!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service and food!Outstanding service and food! The 801 Chophouse at the Paxton is a cattleman's paradise. This is the best steakhouse in Omaha, hands down.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I were in OmahaMy husband and I were in Omaha for a night and decided that we must go to a "good" steakhouse. Friends recommended 801 Chophouse and I must say it more than exceeded our expectations! I have the bone-in prime rib. It was the best piece of meat ever- juicy, tender, and perfectly cooked. My husband's Delmonico was also very good, but we both agreed mine was way better. I highly recommend!!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMUnforgettable ExperienceThe entire experience was unforgettable. The waiter was friendly, eager to explain the dining experience- since it was our first time, and very professional and knowledgable. We each ordered the strip steak, it was agreed that this was the best steak we had ever tasted; cooked and seasoned to perfection. We barely had room for our sides, garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. But, these were phenomenal, as well. This was a dining experience that will not be forgotten, everything about it was absolutely wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a quality steak in Omaha. Lucky for us many directed us to this place, so I would like to direct you here by saying that you will not be disappointed!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was good as always.Everything was good as always.

And the filet with the bone marrow butter bath simply cannot be matched. I took an out-of-town guest here during her short visit. 801 never lets me down!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAs I expected, the steak wasAs I expected, the steak was outstanding.

For a special occasion, I would most definitely go to the Chop House again.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe dining was nice but nothingThe dining was nice but nothing unique. It seemed like a typical steak house.
Seafood menu needs to be impoved. Did like the Lobster Appetizer. That was the best. I had steak and it was good.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMichael G. I love youOur times at 801 are always a delight. I particularly likes this last experience, as our server Michael G, as exceptional. We will always request Michael G, his knowledge of the menu and wine list made taking his suggestions very easy.
The hosts are very personable and that is something that many restaurants forget about.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AM801 RocksWith the notable exception of side dishes, this place was spectacular. The service was as friendly as it was professional. It was the best steakhouse we've ever been to which includes some heavy hitters. Sarah the bartender was especially nice, but everyone was terrific. Wish we could take this place to Napa. ]3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWent as a business/socialWent as a business/social dinner to the 801. We were seated at about 6PM and the dining room was almost empty. The waiter gave us plenty of time to read the menu. He then showed and explained the various cuts of meat (not out of the ordinary for good Omaha steakhouses). I had the ahi tartare which was was presented nicely with wasabi drizzle. I enjoyed a filet mignon of a caliber I haven't had in nearly 10 years. The sides were served "family style" which were enough for each of my party to have about two servings of each side. We enjoyed a Sauvignon Cabernet which complimented our steaks quite excellently. Our waiter kept our drinks refilled and checked on us enough that we felt we were taken care of but did not become intrusive.2/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
