A word from Dario's Brasserie
Dario’s Brasserie is a destination for food lovers in search of casual, elegant dining, located in the heart of Omaha's Dundee neighborhood. Dario's passionate style of cooking incorporates classic French, traditional Belgian and modern techniques including the French method of sous vide. Here at Dario's Brasserie we believe Belgian beer pairs perfectly with any entree, such as mussels, steak and frites, and sous vide short ribs. With over 80 Belgian beers to choose from, you will find the perfect match. Our wine selection is focused on the regions of France and we offer classic French cocktails. The Brasserie has an inviting European style atmosphere, with a patio and a lovely bar area where you may enjoy a drink or have dinner. Stop in for lunch, dinner or our superb Sunday brunch. We also offer seasonal Belgian beer pairing dinners throughout the year.

    We have been to Darios many times and return because the experience is always good. The service was outstanding, and we received helpful suggestions on interesting beer to drink. We tried the Cote de Porc for the first time. It was to die for! It has a paprika spicing on the outside, is moist and falling apart, and served with wonderful sides. There was enough for 3-4 people so we took home leftovers and enjoyed them. Thank you for a delicious meal and relaxing evening!

    The ambiance was classy and elegant. The frisee aux lardon tasted fresh and indulgent. I had the bison ribeye, which was cooked rare (perfect!) with flavorful bernaise and my date had the veal schnitzel, which provided an excellent contrast between the crunchy breading and the tender veal. Our creme brulee had a very thick crust and gave a satisfying crunch as we smacked our spoons into it. As we decided to get another dessert our server recommended the beer cake, which was made with the same beer that he had recommended for my girlfriend to try. (His recommendations were great and our drinks were never half-empty before they brought out another.) Both desserts were truly wonderful. Overall every bite of food was some of the best we have ever had. We will definitely be returning soon.

    Our daughter requested to dine at Darios Brasserie for her 34th birthday. She likes trying different things and when she saw the word Pommel Fries on your sign, it brought back fond memories of Germany even though this is a French restaurant. We love the fruity flavored beers ( raspberry and apple) and they went well with our meals. All the food was well prepared and well presented, which to me, always makes a difference. You can tell the chef takes pride in his work! Loved the relaxing atmosphere and our waiter was very accommodating. We will definitely be back with friends!

    When a "French" restaurant serves hamburgers and fries it's authenticity may be drawn into question. That being said I found Darios a pleasant alteration from the chain's that abound in West Omaha. Good wine list but the server couldn't tell me much about the Cab I ordered. For starters, the muscles were an exceptable option. To much heavy cream in the sauce but good flavor to the broth. For mains we had the tuna and bison steak. The tuna was over cooked and lacked presentation. The bison steak was excellent. Order it medium rare. The chocolate mousse was a winner for desert. I finished with a rye whiskey and bitters drink that was also top notch. The service was only okay.

    After years of enjoying Dario's, our latest experience was disappointing; it seems the kitchen has slipped. The main complaint dealt with the steak frite. The steak was done properly, but the portion was small and over salted. The frites, instead of being served in a paper cone, was dished on the same plate as the meat. They, too, were over salted and mushy. Also, there were no condiments for the fites, as is usual in the Belgium style. The coffee was tepid and because of the always ridiculously large cups cooled to an undrinkable temperature.

    Food was great but customer service was lacking. First, made a reservation one week in advance & when we arrived, our table had already been taken & we were seated in a less ideal location. The AC was leaking on our table. When we asked for a new table, the hostess offered us a smaller table & basically had the attitude of sorry, too busy to make things better for you. Then we sat with empty plates on our table for nearly 30 minutes before we ever saw our waitress. When I make a reservation, I expect alot more than water dripping on my head & poor service.

    We've always had a great meal at Dario's, and Omaha Restaurant Week dining was no exception. My husband and I had the Bison Wellington. We were surprised to find that it was a "deconstructed" Wellington, i.e., the filling and pastry shells (two pastry squares) were piled on top of the bison, but the food was delicious. The bison was cooked perfectly. Dessert was chocolate ganache cake--very rich and filling. My husband had the wine pairings, and all were perfectly suited to complement the food. A great dinner!

    Celebrated our wedding anniversary and it met all the right criteria. Extensive wine and beer list although a lot must be bought by the bottle. Plenty of good finds regardless. Food was great and dessert was a treat. We had yellowfin tuna and a burger (what can I say... That's what my wife wanted) Pear crepes was the special of the night and didn't disappoint. Our server was very attentive and knew all about the Belgian beer I ordered which sold me. Overall great experience-would visit again.

    Great beer selection and nice ambience, except the diva/proprietor/chef refused to cook my tuna "medium", insisting that I take it "rare" as described on his menu. Other reviews suggest his diva reputation is spreading. Dario needs an attitude adjustment.

    Loved the food and the wine/drink menu, however, the service was poor. We were waiting for our food for a long time and saw that the table who sat after we did ended up getting there food before us. We mentioned that to our server, she did not apologize or have any sympathy, she just said that they probably ordered something that took less time to cook. We also had to get her attention several times before getting ketchup. We also had to wait 10 minutes for her to pick up the bill in order for my credit card to be processed.

    Don't know what all the noise is about. I didn't care for Dario's at all. I was in a picky mood and couldn't decide on any of their extravagant dishes so opted for a cheese burger. It was one of the greasiest burgers I have ever tasted. I'm pretty sure it took 3 days to finally wash all the oil from my hands. The "frites" were meh. Good, not great. Hit the spot, I suppose. Would have tasted better 4 beers later. I will commend them on quite the beer/wine list. It's as big as the menu.

    Brought a friend who is visiting from NYC to this place. It was our first time trying Dario's out as well. Our server was very friendly. We tried some mussels for appetizer and it was delicious and full of flavor. I had the short ribs and it was perfectly done. It was charred just right on the outside while remaining tender, moist and very juicy. The food presentation is also above ordinary restaurants and everything was just done right. Would definitely return for more.

    I would like to express my thanks to Dario's and their wonderful staff. I made reservations through the restaurants website (which was quite simple) I let them know in the notes section that my wife and I were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary and anything they could do to make the night special would be greatly appreciated.when we arrived the hostess made sure to wish us Happy Anniversary and showed us to our special table that had fresh lilies waiting for us.Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the wine menu and was more than willing to give my wife and I a few samples of wine before we made our selection. By the way the food was amazing. We'll be coming back and recommend this restaurant to all of our friends.

Everyone -- from our steak eaters to our vegetarians -- finds something that's just right for them on the menu or as a special. And everything is always delicious! The ambiance is just right. It's just cozy enough, with a wonderful bar. We plan to return, celebration after celebration.

    Dario's is one of our favorite restaurants in Omaha and is consistently excellent. However, on this night, a Friday, the normal buzz was missing, not the restaurant's fault, and the dishes missed the mark a little. One dish, rabbit, was excellent, but the yellow fin tuna had a slight fishy taste and was overdone. The tuna was okay but not up to the restaurant's standards. The homemade peach ice cream was excellent, as usual for their ice cream. Still a good evening but a bit disappointing.
