Creative menu selections, beautiful plate presentations and great service makes V' Mertz a must try for anybody looking for a great dining experience.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and SettingThe food is fantastic and the setting is amazing. I can't think of a single reason not to go back.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic, as alwaysHands down our favorite restaurant in Omaha. The courses are as artistically presented as they are balanced and delicious. The wait staff is phenomenal, able to speak in great detail about the wines and meals, and the bartender makes a fantastic old fashioned. The setting is a quiet, romantic, candlelit setting in the midst of the unique old market passageway. My highest recommendation.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMV. Mertz, food yes, comfort noI was immediately disappointed with V. Mertz. I made the reservation well in advance and stated we were celebrating our anniversary and would like a quite table off to the side somewhere. They instead place us at a small table right next to the entrance.
Our server was Ross was great and helped us with several items on the menu.
The food was some of the best I ever had and the presentation was excellent.
The seats were uncomfortable, thin padding on rod iron. By the time the meal was over I was happy to get up to leave to get my circulation back to my posterior.
The food made up for any bad experience and I was overall very pleased.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal!Every aspect of our meal was outstanding. We arrived 5 min ahead of our reservation time and we were seated promptly in the back near the wine racks. It. Had the feel of a cozy wine cellar. The atmosphere was
romantic, our server was very knowledgable about how the food was prepared and the wines that paired each course, and the food was fantastic- I was astounded at how the flavors of the individual ingredients played off of each other and paired nicely with the wines. I had the prix fixe salad, salmon, and creme brûlée with wine pairings, and my husband had the cheese plate, pepper steak, and candy bar dessert. We ate nearly all of everything and left very full. The restaurant exceeded my expectations and we will absolutely return!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent food and serviceVery tasty food, great service, good for special occasions.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMIt had been a while, but stillIt had been a while, but still it was great. All aspects from wine to service to food were very good.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat tasting menuV Mertz has a 5 course and 8 course tasting menu that is paired with wines and served by the chef with information about the course and preparation. it is a little pricey, but the food was great and the experience was fun for a birthday dinner. Service was excellent.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat birthday dinner!My wife and I went to V. Mertz to celebrate her birthday. It was the first time we'd been there and it did not disappoint. Great atmosphere; you feel like you're dining in a wine cellar. Excellent wine list ranging from high $30s all the way up. Enlist the help of the sommelier; he didn't push toward an expensive bottle; he took our ques and made a great, reasonable recommendation. Charuterie was awesome - duck breast, pork rillette, raw cured bacon, and came with a seedy country loaf. I ordered the waygu beef, and my wife had the "BLT" Farfalle dish, which had fried bacon, pork shoulder, and loin, along with preserved tomato. All of the locally sourced ingredients were incredible. Top the night off with dessert and french press coffee.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPrix fixeThe best bang for your buck! My girlfriend and I have ordered this twice with the wine pairings an it's an incredible value for what you pay for. By far the best two dates we've been on. Very romantic and gives you a chance to try things on the menu you normally wouldn't try! I'd say this is one of the best and one of my favorite restaurants in Omaha.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for anniversaryWent here with my husband for our anniversary. The food was delicious and the service even better. It was a little noisy because of a large party, but I would guess it is normally pretty quiet. I would definitely recommend it!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food I've had in Omaha!!!!I have lived in Nebraska for 2 years and used to enjoy fine dining before Moved here.

From the moment when we arrived and the manager asking if we had reservations and then taking us to our table which was already set up, he then made sure to wish my fiancee' a Happy Anniversary. Very nice personal touch! The waiter was extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of our dining experience and being as it was our first time there, really made sure to walk us through every aspect of the menu. From our cocktails to the appetizer to the entrees to the wine pairing to the deserts, EVERYTHING was amazing to say the least!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic and delightful evening!We went here for a special occasion and it was very delightful. We had the oyster soup to start which was VERY good and served nicely so that you could see the ingredients before the actual broth was poured into it which we thought was neat. We both had the peppercorn steak and it was very good. We finished with the creme brulee which was amazing! I would definitely come back for a special occasion.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals I have had!Fabulous food and service!!The pepper steak is a must have!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA top 10 dining experience.A top 10 dining experience.

I found my new favorite Chardonnay thanks to our server's suggestion. We had cocktails before dinner at the bar and I had their specialty strawberry gin drink an it was the best drink I've ever had. The head chef even delivered a few of our courses. This made us feel so special! We went for our 1 year anniversary and were completely blown away by our experience. We want to go back every year if not more! We live about an hour away and I would make the trip any night for dinner at this restaurant. Our server was fabulous and so knowledgable on the menu and the wines. Best eating experience all around we've ever had.
