Diner Reviews
  • "Plain and simple, save some cash and get an exponentially better meal by going to J's on Jackson (Jackson Street, Old Market). The Omaha Prime steaks were good, but not for the price. J's on Jackson has better steaks for less. Sides are served a la carte and are unnecessarily expensive. Hostess and waitstaff were very friendly, but I didn't drop $250 for small-talk. For the cost and what it is, I won't be going back--one visit is enough for "bragging rights," though there isn't too much to brag about."

  • "The outside seating for Omaha Prime is wonderful and our server was great, it was only the food that was disappointing. With so many choices in Omaha, we will not be returning."

  • "I have been fortunate to attend the College World Series a number of times and on each occasion enjoy dinner the Sunday night before the Championship Series at Omaha Prime. Our server Shannon was excellent this year. Highly recommend the Omaha Prime Salad. Cannot miss with any of the steak options. This year I enjoyed the Filet Mignon. Many good a la carte side choices: bacon sprouts, blue cheese potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, asparagus and spinach."

  • "I asked for a quite table in the corner with a particular bottle of wine. When we got there they had the table set up with the wine. Host and waiter were very pleasant and wished my wife a Happy Birthday. Great food, wine and service."

  • "Upon arriving, we were seated, but did not receive menus. After 15 minutes, we still had not received menus, water or had not even been approached by the wait staff. We finally retrieved menus ourselves from the bar. The wine list was small and poorly presented, as it only had about 25 listings and the specialty wine card was outdated. The meals themselves were very mediocre, with the highlight being the sides. The steaks were very mediocre at best. As a group, we like to linger and enjoy the ambiance after the meal, but, we couldn't get out of there fast enough. Not what we expected and certainly not on the 'return' list."

  • "This is a great place in the Old Market District of Omaha. Great steaks and perfect place for a nice quiet evening of food and fellowship among friends or business colleagues. I would highly recommend this for that special evening, date night or business dinner with prospective clients, or employee appreciation!"

  • "The restaurant is in the Old Town district of Omaha, which in itself is an amazing atmosphere. The restaurant has two floors. The ground floor is setup for a quite dinner for two and the second floor more for family dinners. However, there is a quaint second floor patio looking over a covered ally. The ally is very lively and creates just enough noise to make you feel like you are surrounded by the hustle of the city, but enough out of view to allow for a romantic dinner. On top of the ambiance of the place, the food was amazing. The steak was cooked to perfection and the lamb chops were the best I have had. All of the vegetables were steamed just right and the baked potato not overly cooked. As for the staff, they were perfect. "

  • "Not the greatest, especially considering the price. We were well into the three figures for two of us with no drinks. Filet was not tender and nothing stood out as exceptional. It looked as if they raised prices for the Berkshire weekend as the online menu prices were lower."

  • "Tried Omaha Prime for the first time. Usually go to Sullivan's or Mahogany's when entertaining clients in town. Thought something new was in order. Looked online and saw they had good ratings. Unfortunately, our experience was not good. The service was average. The restaurant was not very busy. Where they sat us turned out to be very hot...and uncomfortable. There were six in our group and 4 of the 6 complained of the temperature. We asked for them to cool it down...which they finally did as we were well into our dinner. After dinner, I compared notes with my guests...who are all executives with a large Omaha based company...and all were disappointed in their meals. The steaks were tough to eat and full of gristle. Not good!"

  • "Excellent steaks. Salad dressing was very good. Shared vegetables excellent and more flavorful than other steak houses but barely enough to stare with another . Our waiter, Terry, was engaging and informative about the food and of Omaha. The wine list was short but had an adequate breadth of wines under $50-75. Most could be ordered by the glass. Overall a more enjoyable dining experience than most other steak houses, especially chains."

  • "Steaks were great of course. You can order sauces which come on the side. If you are going as a couple, don't bother ordering two of the same sauce because you can share. The pepper sauce is really boring and reminded me of A-1 without the kick. Our waiter recommended it. He also said the caesar salad is the best in town. He is mistaken.. it was a plain old caesar that you could create yourself with a bag from the grocery store. One bright spot was the lobster bisque. It is a wonderful creamy soup in a cream puff. Delicious but I didn't really taste the lobster. Beware it may be the most expensive restaurant in town."

  • "Dining in the passageway is romantic, and the service knows how to provide a great experience. They are trained in the little details of fine dining, which is much appreciated! The steak is good meat and prepared as ordered-- nothing more, nothing less. The sides were a little wanting for portions, though. An excellent dining experience! Just wish the price were moderated a little; it's easy to spend over $100/person."

  • "the food was very good but a very poor experience. The wait for water was 15 minutes. The waiter Dillon first came to our table he greeted us then informed us he would be back with menus once we settled in. 1/2 hour later he finally brought us menus and acted surprised we were ready to order after a few minutes. There were at least 50 dirty wine glasses sitting on top of the bar the entire time we were seated and they were obviously understaffed. The hostess who seated each party yelled out "who's next" to the waiting patrons instead of checking the reservation book which we thought was very inappropriate given it is supposed to be a "high end" restaurant. For the kind of money we spent it was a disappointing experience."

  • "Had reservations for 7:00 on Valentine's. Showed up on time, girl at the door crossed our name off the list and we joined the other 6 couples standing in the bar are. no bartender. The hostess seating people would walk down the stairs every couple of minutes and announce "Who's next?". No organization what so ever. Finally got seated around 7:30. Our waiter acted like he didn't much want to be there, just going through the motions. The place was noisy, the "Hostess" refilled my water glass and also filled the small plate that my dinner roll was sitting on with water too. The food was very good, my compliments to the chef. However, everything else was WAY below average. I expect a lot more when I am dropping $175.00 for dinner."

  • "Went for valentines day. We were both very disappointed in our steaks. When you pay $40 for a steak it should be outstanding. Far from it. Purely ordinary. Will not be going back. Salads were very good but that's about it. Loved the space and location Our waiter was very attentive. Too bad"

  • "I had my ten year year business dinner at Omaha Prime this year. I've never been before and was very happy with everything. Some of us showed up early to have some drinks before dinner and they had our table ready an hour before our reservation. Our waiter was great food was great and to top it off Warren Buffet and Bill Gates had dinner there the same time we did. My only complaint is a lot of us like to try new drinks and would like a drink menu. Pretty minor complaint. All in all it was great all the way around. Thanks!!"

Had to go to the bar several times for drinks. It was very loud also. We had another couple with us that had never been to Omaha Prime so they were not impressed."

  • "Omaha Prime is one of our favorite restaurants but disappointed on New Year's Eve. We dined early, 6:30, the Hostess commented that being early might overload the wait staff, there wasn't a bar to wait in. There weren't many diners then but she seemed frazzled, frantically running up and down stairs. There was a limited menu for the evening which did not include many of the items we specifically go there for. They should offer the full menu on Holidays or post limited menus on their website. My steak was overcooked and overall it was a disappointment. Typically, we really enjoy it but for the price, it was not worth it on New Year's Eve. Disappointed:("

  • "I went to dinner with 2 colleagues to have a business discussion. I've beeen to Omaha Prime 12-15 times in the last couple of years and it has always been a very positive experience. This time was no different. The steaks were very good, and the wine list was more than adequate. The side dishes are not as good as you would expect, but were not bad either. The kitchen lacks creativity when it come to the accoutrements. Overall its not the best steakhouse in Omaha, but is surely in the top 5. I will dine here just as much as I have done in the past and would recommend it to anyone. This is a very worthwhile establishment that everyone should try for themselves. It is a good place for a business dinner or just a nice dinner with a friend."

  • "We were visiting Omaha from LA and a local referred us to this restaurant. It is right in the Old Market section. I had the bone in filet and it was really good as were the side dishes especially the blue cheese potatoes. But the service was the best part, attentive, knowledgable but not intrusive. I'm surprised the place was not very busy for a Saturday night but we thoroughly enjoyed it."

  • "Omaha Prime has been around a long time, and they do know the right way to select and cook a fine cut of meat - they also know how to charge for it. We were impressed with the quality of the service and the pre-menu presentation of dining possibilities. We were also happy to get one of the few tables overlooking the passageway. Our cuts of beef were excellent and cooked to perfection.The sides were only good to below average. The French onion soup was way too salty - masking all other flavors in the mixture. The blue cheese potato dish was undercooked. The bacon brussels sprouts dish was good - although I would have like a little more bacon in the mix. Not bad for a fine dining experience, but there are better ones in Omaha for the price."

  • "We felt like we were in church. The food was very good as was the service. This place is in a great location. The place had no energy and needs a little updating and it could quickly be the talk of the Old Market. Rip out that old carpeting and put down some hardwood floors, play something other than elevator music and give this place some energy/enthusiasm. Also, when making the reservation, I noted we were celebrating my wife's birthday. I noticed it mentioned in the reservation booklet. No mention of it whatsoever which was a little disappointing as well."

  • "From the reviews online I was hoping for a romantic dinner with a large and varied menu. Though the prime rib was good it definitely wasn't worth what I paid for it. I've had it just as good at half the price and the atmosphere was ok but again it left a lot of room for improvement.. I probably won't be going back any time soon."

  • "This was my first trip to Omaha Prime and overall I was pleased. When my fiancé and I first walked in we were seated immediately. I should note we were about 1/2 early for our 7pm reservation and the place was not very busy so I am not sure what type of wait there usually is if any. The main dining area is up a large set of stairs that were a little hard to navigate for my fiancé in her heels but with the hand rails and my hand she made it up and down without incident. The service from our waiter was good. He was very attentive without being bothersome. The food was good. My Prime Rib was a little under cooked for how I ordered it but still tasty. The place is pricey but for a special occasion or a romantic dinner I would recommend it."
