Railcar Modern American Kitchen
The Cherry Ribs were outstanding!The Cherry Ribs were outstanding! They come with the best fries I have had in a long time. I also loved the peanut coleslaw. The other diner with us had the Sea Bass and she said it was very good. She asked for the cauliflower hash with her Entrée and this substitution was willingly accommodated. We will be back.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome foodI had the pork chop with peach compote. Wife had crab cake dinner. We shared the artichoke flat bread appetizer. Everything was outstanding. Only complaint was service was slow. Took about 40 minutes to get food. Drink refils were annoyingly slow. Quality and taste of food made up for it. We'll be back. Hoping for a bit better service next time.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMRecent Dinner3 diners ~ 3 different entrees ~ all very good! Great service ~ we weren't rushed at all ~ very relaxing Saturday evening! We will definitely go back and try something different on the extensive menu.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat New FindDespite its odd name, Railcar is an excellent restaurant in the old Vincenzo's site. Great menu. Great wine list. It took a little time for the wine to arrive, but that was because the waiter had trouble finding the exact vintage.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMussel strainI am a big fan of mussels and have had them many times in France and a time or two at Dario's in Omaha. At the Railcar they were stale, over cooked, and in a broth that destroyed any mussel taste. They tasted like stale fish. My partner had a good, but over priced sandwich. They owe me a free mussel meal.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DiningWent here for Mothers Day. They had a brunch menu which offered a lot of variety. They were busy but the service was excellent and the food was great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our 3rd visit. FoodThis was our 3rd visit. Food is excellent. This last visit was Mother's Day, and due to the volume of business they were doing, the service was a little on the slow side. They have some unique dishes which we enjoy. I would strongly recommend this cafe!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful neighborhood dining spotGreat food, ambiance, service. Would recommend it to couples celebrating a special occasion, families wanting a fine dining experience. Staff very friendly. Comfortable seating and warm, relaxed atmosphere.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst VisitThe food was very good, although 3 people in our party of 6 sent their prime rib and salmon back for being undercooked to their liking. I saw the salmon and it appeared perfect for my likes. Our entrees arrived before we were able to finish our salads. Made for a very crowded table of dishes and not how we like to dine. We were out with friends for an evening of fun and we felt rushed.
However, I must say the food was very good. We wish the restaurant would have not been out of their cherry ribs, the halibut and the carrot cake, but we were late diners that night and accepted the fact that some of their menu items were unavailable. The cherry ribs must be something special. Will be back to make sure I try them.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the first time weThis was the first time we were at Railcar and we thought it was really good, especially the Flatbreads. We will definately return!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is awesome. Tender beef,Food is awesome. Tender beef, potatoes are great, not too much salt in the gravy. Appetizer we had (prosciutto and artichoke) was outstanding. My only hesitation on giving them 5 stars would be the lack of green on our plates. No salad with the meal, no vegetables either.
I don't know about the wines or drinks (not my specialty), but the beer list was great.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWell doneHad Cubano sandwich for lunch. Excellent. Bread was awesome. My friend liked his Blue Burger. Railcar recently opened near my home. This was my first visit. The new ambiance is well done.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the short rib shortbreadWe had the short rib shortbread for app and it was awesome. The salmon, short ribs, and cherry ribs were all great. Definetly will be going back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMu husband and I have workedMu husband and I have worked in foodservice for over 30 years. we tend to have a critical eye when we dine out. that was my caveat.
Food was wonderful.
Ceaser salad: dressing is made from scratch.
I had the short ribs and my husband had the cherry ribs. Huge portions, nicely presented, flavors were on point.
We shared the short rib flatbread and the mussels. Ample portions&great flavor. The only change we would suggest is the presentation of the frits. Tasted great, but need to be nestled in anotther dish.
Our only complaint was the timing of our food. Salads came before our apps. not a big deal. but then the courses arrived too quickly. We weren't half way through our salads when the apps arrived and the entrees right after.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThere were not a lot of peopleThere were not a lot of people the night we went but it was a Monday and lots of road construction by the restaurant. It was our first time there and we very much enjoyed it. Our waitperson was knowledgeable and friendly and the food was excellent. We are not drinkers so I can't comment on the wine list.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was superb and theThe food was superb and the owner/chef actually walks around and talk to the patrons.

Another excellent experience. The service continues to impress. The seafood and its presentation sparkled this time. I had the. Marlin "London broil", with cartelized onions, tomatoes and Brussels sprouts. Yum. The others had salmon, one on her salad ( a non-menu touch they indulged for us), and the standard presentation, which was anything but. We also had a side of the cauliflower " hash"--amazingly good. This is a restaurant firing on all cylinders. Do yourself a favor and go.1/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is great, The menu isFood is great, The menu is a nice variety.
