A word from Ryan's Bistro & Wine Bar
The idea behind the menu of Ryan's Bistro is variety. The wine list is a focal point of the restaurant, with over 100 wines. Great food served with the ambiance of the fireplace and a see-and-be-seen crowd.

Ryan's Bistro & Wine Bar reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Our 2nd visit

    Dined on 2/15/2014
    This was my husband and I's 2nd visit to Ryan's Bistro. The food was very good...we ate too much! Overall we had a very good experience. With 2 exceptions: it was VERY noisy and we were seated a section where everytime the front door opened (despite the 2 entry door system) we got a blast of cold air and it was very chilly. My husband was tempted to put his coat back on even!

    Noisy chatter,lacking ambiance on so many levels, service staff similar to a diner, food was good but not $55 per plate. When the noise finally died down at the end of the valentine evening, music from happy days was the background music.

    Great atmosphere, a little noisy being a smaller place that was very busy. The waitress we had was great, explaining how the menu worked for the evening, bringing each course at the right time and checking in on us just right. The appetizers and deserts were amazing. The main course was fair. My wife's steak was over cooked, she ordered it medium rare and it was on the verge of medium well. The best part of the main course was the potatoes. I thought for the $55 a person the meal could have been a lot better. I have had $20 steaks taste a he'll of a lot better. I would like to try their regular menu sometime, but will maybe think twice on ordering a steak.

    We had a wonderful meal, but felt rushed by the speed at which courses were served. I know it was Valentine's Day, but we were hoping for a little less frenetic experience. When we lingered over dessert, we felt we were not welcome. That has not been our experience before when we dined here, so will chalk it up to an especially busy night.

    They have a farily large wine list, although most was from California (my preference is for having a broader selection of international wines at a restaurant that touts its wine list). Bacon wrapped dates were a delicious appetizer, as were the entrees (beef tenderloin and mako). Creme brulee was very creamy - delicious.

    There were four in our party and three of us rated the food excellent. One other and I had the chicken breast w/ gouda cheese in a pastry puff with cherry drizzle over the top. I loved it but the other person didn't care for the cherry drizzle. The steak medallions and the gouda mac & cheese got rave reviews. We will be back!

    Dined on 1/3/2014
    Three couples had a great night out at Ryan's. We started with appetizers and drinks. The appetizers were awesome. I thought the wine list was adequate but the prices seemed a bit high to us. Our entrees were all spectacular - we had steak, salmon and pasta between us all. The food was fantastic. I would highly recommend the wood plank salmon - it was probably the best salmon I have ever eaten. The restaurant was full - 7pm reservation, but around 8pm it started to clear out which reduced the noise level. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. We have gone a lot and have never had any issues.

  • NEW YEARS EVE DINNER
    AllanG
    Dined on 12/31/2013
    We've been to Ryan's several times before and totally enjoyed our experience there but, New Years Eve dinner not so much. Dinner was labeled as "Exquisite Prix Fare" four course dinner ($65/person) but was far from Exquisite. Dinner service was rushed and not the relaxing dinner I was hoping for especially at $65 price point. Food quality was much less than what I have grown to expect from Ryan's. Lesson learnt, don't go for dinner on New Years Eve when there are three dinner settings in one evening.

    The restaurant itself is very nice however our food was a big disappointment. Our apps were not very good at all, our steaks were ordered medium rare and was delivered medium well to well done. The steaks that were redone of us had no seasoning at all. Probably will not be back.

    After coming here so many times, we were disappointed with this last experience. The waitress was either new or doesn't know how to do her job correctly. We had a coupon for a free appetizer which we never received. After taking our orders our waitress disappeared. My husband's short ribs were good, but half of the plate was covered with mashed potatoes. Not sure if this is to make the servings look bigger than they are or why. The lamb burger was dry and crispy on the edges with a burnt taste. It did not have much flavor. We finally received refills on our water when we were half finished with our food and they were not even busy, It was a Tuesday night. Very disappointing meal.

    Tasty selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts, just right for a delicious meal without being heavy laden. The roasted grapes and brie crostini with chili honey is a must for the regular appetizer menu!! Our supper club group tasted each of the Omaha Restaurant Week selections and all were outstanding. Tucked away off 176th & Center, it's a best kept secret.

    My girlfriends and I tried this palce in honor of Omaha Restaurant week and we were very pleased with all aspects of this place. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the ambience was great. The place is pretty small and fills up quick, but we were able to hold an easy conversation without worrying about eavesdroppers from nearby tables. We will definitely be going back!

    I don't like going to restaurants where they move you in and out so fast and don't give you time to just sit and chat. I did not feel rushed here at all. We were there about an hour and a half and it was just great!

    Went with two girlfriends for the Restaurant Week special. We had a great time: food was delicious, portion sizes were reasonable, server recommended a Restaurant Week special for wine that was affordable and enjoyed by all, and overall we had a great time! The meal felt a little rushed at times because of Restaurant Week (we went early and there weren't that many people there, so it seemed unnecessary to hurry us through the meal), but it's understandable with the expected inflow for Restaurant Week and I have not had that experience other times I have arrived. We will definitely be going again!

    The menu is varied and inviting. We all shared tastes. The bruschetta looked lovely, but didn't have much tomato flavor. The lobster bisque had nice flavor, but was watery, and I wasn't sure what was at the bottom of my cup -- pieces of lobster and/or pieces of tomato? Scallops were cooked to perfection and delicious. Filet -- perfectly cooked. Delicious! The brie chicken beautiful - rave reviews. Gouda mac and cheese - cheese sauce was runny and not very flavorful. The red wine risotto was my first experience with risotto, and had nice flavor, but was a mauve-y colored blob. Not very attractive. Wine list -- very impressive, though a little overpriced. We definitely would go back again, but might be more cautious in our choices..

    I was very excited about making reservations to come to Ryan's Bistro Saturday night. My boyfriend and I brought in our own bottle of wine and were the only ones in there around 7:00. Our waitress was outstanding and very nice. It was quiet and our food was phenomenal. We shared the spinach artichoke dip which was delicious. Our entrees were chicken alfredo and macaroni and cheese. I will be back in soon! Very pleased!

    The outside of Ryan's Bistro is nothing special, but it is deceiving! The food is outstanding. We started with the stuffed dates, the bestselling appetizer. Amazing! My husband wasn't impressed, but only because he doesn't like dates. Ever. The lobster bisque was only okay, but the entrees made up for it. The Brie chicken was delicious, and my husband said the braised short ribs were as well. Dessert? A solid rendition of creme brûlée, and bananas foster. We will definitely be returning to Ryan's Bistro!

    We love this restaurant normally, one of our fav. This time we went for mothers day brunch and service was way off. We had to wait almost 15 min. just for someone to greet us and give us water. They delivered our meal before taking our starter buffet plates...and we had to ask them to take them after they dropped off all the meals! And the steak was really tough, though rest of food was super. We will return since this was not the norm.
