Diner Reviews
  • "My wagyu beef was disappointingly tough to eat but maybe that's because I ordered it pink in the middle, not rare as recommended."

  • "Best restaurant in Omaha. Wonderful wine list. Wonderful food.Wonderful service."

  • "Ate here in April 2014. Food was excellent. Would like larger beer selection...but I understand one doesnt come here to drink beer."

  • "I dinned here four hears ago and did not enjoy the menu. Hoping it had changed, but still a pretensiois menu. Also, a small menu... Only a few choices including rabbit, lamb, fish and beef. Also overpriced. Each course is ala carte. You ll be happier dining elsewhere... Unless you are a French foodie snob."

  • "I have eaten at the boiler room before, but this time it was disappointing. I had the steak entree. I was tough and I couldn't even finish it. My friend had the rabbit and she said it was overcooked."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This was only our most recent visit to the Boiler Room and it never fails to please as a fine dining spot. The menu is unique but approachable. Service is always impeccable (which tends to be an issue at other fine dining establishments in Omaha). The bar is menu and bartenders are stil the most interesting and town. And to sit at a table overlooking the kitchen is engrossing every time for any foodie or wannabe foodie. Grey Plume may receive all kinds of accolades but The Boiler Room is Omaha's original gem!"

  • "Very well executed menu items. It takes a great Chef to create a menu like this, and a great culinary team to make it successful. Also, I have not had service this good anywhere in the state of Nebraska. Our waiter was there when we needed him, but never in the way. We had 5 courses and none of them were rush, nor were we kept waiting. Just an overall great dinning experience."

  • "My guests from Chicago were very impressed with the experience they received at the Boiler Room. Both men, who traditionally hit the steak houses in Omaha, loved everything from the chesse tray to dessert. If you have not been to this place I have a note for you. You start by parking in a really old warehouse district, complete with abandoned rail lines you have to step over. You dine in the main level and open basement of an old warehouse. The walls are old red bricks. Furniture is low and clean, letting you really take in the character of the place. Food- outstanding. Look at the menu on line. Service- outstanding."

  • "Heavenly food and wine aside, the Boiler Room is exceptional for it's service. We dined here on a recent weekend and were joined by a friend who has a rare food allergy to several standard ingredients. Paul, Tim and the Boiler Room team contacted us beforehand and created (and printed) a special menu for our friend -- which was not only delicious -- but went above and beyond her expectations for making her feel included in the dining experience. The food was exceptional, beautifully presented and not fussy (which beleaguers some fine dining restaurants which we won't mention). The atmosphere is quiet, romantic, and classic Old Market."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "My wife and I eloped to Omaha, of all places, three years ago and ate here. It is till the best place to eat ever in my opinion. Paul puts together some very unique ingredients that just work so well together. He also rotates his seasonal menu using local growers. I have been to many high end restaurants in Minneapolis and Chicago but this is at the top of my list. Why hasn't Paul Kulik been on "Iron Chef?""

  • "The Chef de Cuisine from The Grey Plume came to The Boiler Room and collaborated with the Chef de Cuisine here to provide an outstanding five course meal paired with wine. Items like monkfish liver torchon, pork 4 ways and a pasta dish that took the meal over the top. Service was perfect. She was very customer focused and you could tell that she wanted to take care of the diner. Ambience was awesome as you can look down into the open kitchen and watch the chefs prepare the food. Overall, it was an oustanding experience and I will be joining the next chef swap in April at The Grey Plume."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "We came for the Chef Swap tasting menu. Everything was amazing. Great job, Sara(h?) on pairing the sorbet and pasta course. Amazing service and amazing food by both chefs."

  • "We received a gift card to the Boiler Room but had been hesitant to use it because We do not frequent high end restaurants. All worries were unfounded due to the pleasant and attentive servers. From explaining cocktails to the many items on the menu, my server was patient and informative. Never did we feel rushed or out of place. The food was fabulous, the atmosphere was romantic and it was fun to be able to look down into the kitchen. We will be back!"

  • "My wife and I have been to Boiler Room twice in the past month, and it has been excellent both times. We sat downstairs the first time, which I preferred because it is near the funky, pretty quiet bar area. Upstairs seating seems more formal. The creativity and taste of the non-alcoholic cocktails indicate that the bartender really knows his/her stuff. The food has been perfectly prepared, and the service has been very good both times. Highly recommended. Not cheap, but in my opinion worth the ~$75-80 per person including tip (that's with a <$25 drink bill, total)"

  • "My fiance and I decided on Boiler Room as the spot for our 6th Anniversary. Everything about this restaurant is classy - the ambiance, the drinks, the food, and the service. The staff was professional, courteous, and knowledgeable about everything served. They were even kind enough to print us a "happy anniversary" note on our menus! The space had a 1920's speakeasy/art deco feel - darker lighting, original fixtures, and brick walls, all especially appropriate for the craft drinks they had available. The food was excellent, and the menu has a strong leaning toward fish and natural game, with some local vegetables. This is refreshing given the typical steakhouse fare you usually come across in Nebraska, even at nicer restaurants."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Great space. Wonderful service. Food is always local and seasonal, so there is always something new and interesting. Quality creations in the food department, but never stunning. You won't ever be disappointed, but you will also never be blown away."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "the service was excellent but the food left a lot to be desired. For what we paid I expected to be wowed, instead I left wit the after dinner port being the highlight of the meal. The waitress told us that the original chef has opened his own place in Old Market area. Should probably go there instead, because the current chef at the Boiler Room is certainly not who put them on the map. The Swordfish was warm, the sauce was bland and the bread was stale. The first course was okay, but the short ribs left a lot asalty aftertaste. Dropped 265 for four people... Good thing the company I was with was so great or it would have been a complete flop. My wife did not even eat her dinner. If I had a do-over... would not choose this place."

  • "I took my husband to dinner on his birthday, which is Valentine's Day. It was a very romantic dinner. We really enjoyed the ambience and the special dinner menu with each course paired with a wine. The service was outstanding."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Had to celebrate V-day early due to work and the Boiler Room delivered. The specialty cocktails were amazing, I wanted to try them all. Had a few smaller items and the pork chop for the main course. AMAZING. Quite possibly the best restaurant in Omaha."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Ive been here a few times and have enjoyed it every time. The menu is created daily due to food brought in by local growers and such so every time you go here it is unique. Wonderful drinks here as well. It is a little pricey but well worth it."

  • "Love the personal touch with her name on the top of the menu. Excellent staff and ambience."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "This was my wife and I's third visit, and it was what we think is the best dining experience in Omaha. The menu changes a lot, but it is always fresh, and somehow familiar. The wait staff all know their wines extremely well. My Monkfish, and my wife's beef ribs made for a tough pairing, but a German red (Becker) worked very well with both. House made charcuterie was excellent, as well as house brined olives. The bolier room does things the labor intensive way, and it shows. The results are excellent."

  • "Great spot for dinner anytime but especially nice if you are celebrating. I simply love the physical space and the atmosphere. Good is delightful."

  • "We had the monkfish and mackerel along with an appetizer and desert. Everything was excellent. The waiter paired a very nice wine with our selections, overall, an excellent meal but expect the bill to reflect this quality."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Wine and food exceeded our expectations. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. Bass dish is special. Bring a friend to help you enjoy. I have now had a lamb chop in Omaha that has been prepared correctly."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "Food was fantastic. We tried all the cheeses, three apps, two entrees and a dessert and all were delicious. Alex was attentive and knowledgeable but never interfered with our dining experience. They even made special menus for us that wished us a happy anniversary. Off the charts! Can't wait to go back and if you haven't been, I would surely take your special someone there."

  • "We have a grandson that we take out for dinner to a different restaurant every other weekend. He loves "classy " food, so he was impressed with Boiler room and the staff. Most of the restaurants he chooses cost $$$$, so we only frequent them when he is in town and for special occasions!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "from the host to the waiter, bar tender and chiefs; the whole staff is there to provide a dining experience. Our waiter guided through our first drinks to appetizers to main course with wine parring to cheese tray to desert. What a ride! The wine from eastern europe (Slovenia I think) was outstanding with the bass dish we had (open fillet with head and all). This was for my girlfriends 32 birthday, we have been going to the Boiler Room for each of her last 3 bdays and each is better than the last. My favorite fine dining restaurant in town. Worth the price!"

  • "I enjoy this restaurant but at my last visit, I had cobia for my entrée. Traditionally a tasty fish and I loved the sides and presentation but I was served the tail of a very large fish which was tough and oily. For a restaurant like the Boiler Room, they shouldn't serve inferior cuts of meat. The service saved the night."

  • "I just love this place! Everything about it is spot on. The service is seamless, with professional looking and well trained staff. The food is perfectly presented and well balanced. What do I mean by balanced? This chef has a flair for incorporating just the right amount of "gourmet chic", without losing the organic component of the ingredients. There is so much experimentation with Molecular Gastronomy and things of that nature, that I really appreciate cutting and chewing real food! I don't want to lick foam dots off my plate ! I want to eat intriguing food combinations with unique treatments and appealing presentations. The wine and cocktail offerings are also stellar! Skip the Steakhouses if you're traveling. Dine here!"

  • "Yeah, read other reviews and decided to try it. I had no idea what the menu items were. I was kinda scared but decided to jump in. The prohibition style Buttered Rum drink was deeelicious oh, and potent. :) The cheese tray was awesome! First course, second course - just yummy and we didn't leave with that oh i ate too much feeling. Yeah Hubby is the man. You can be da man too. Impress your lady here! Thumbs up!"

  • "The Boiler Room was awesome! The service was professional and attentive, and the food was amazing! We ate there on New Year's Eve, and therefore had the price-fix menu with wine pairings. The combinations of food and wine were perfect! I highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion, or when you just want a fine-dining experience that's worth the price."
