We enjoyed the food and ambiance but our server was disappointing. Forgot to bring us bread and did little to make our dining/service enjoyable. He never introduced himself but for those prices it seems like waitstaff should be pleasant, engaging and warm.

Father’s Day meal. It was very loud but was busy due to the CWS being in town so I understood. The food took a little while to come out but we didn’t mind as we were not in a rush. Otherwise a great experience. Bartenders were very knowledgeable.

Seated immediately with a reservation. Nina was there to greet us at our table. Top notch service with a smile, gave us time to enjoy our wine before we heard the specials and taking our order. Superb menu, wine list, and specials. Wow!!! The wedge salad was excellent, filet with mushrooms was prepared to perfection. What a gem... this place is the best!!!

801 Chophouse at the Paxton is wonderful restaurant. My wife and I go there almost every year for our anniversary and we love it. They are high on price but for quality of food, service and creating memories they cannot be beat in Omaha. When we made our reservation online we were asked if we were celebrating and noted it was our anniversary. When we were seated at our table they gave us a wonderful congratulations card with a gift-card in it. The 801 Chophouse is always an unforgettably great experience and we recommend it to everybody!!!!

Our bone-in filet was wonderful. I only wish our wait person had asked if we wanted a to go box before clearing the table because we wanted to take the bone for our dog.
A little more light at the tables would be nice to read the menus. I saw several people using their phone's flashlight.

I am getting deployed and I wanted to have one last date night with my love and this was a the perfect place. The atmosphere was FANTASTIC. We had never been and we were greeted with a smiling face and friendly conversation from our waitress Leah. She was amazing with explaining how everything worked with the menu, the difference in the meats that were on the menu, what was on special for the evening with cuts of meat as well. She also filled us in on the option of doing halves for sides and salads which made things so much better because we were able to try many more options. The brussel sprouts were TO DIE FOR, the mac and cheese is soooo cheesy, and the baked potato was as big as my head (loaded with fresh smoked thick bacon pieces, yummy).

I had the filet and my love had the new york strip and both were so delicious and juicy. Cooked just to the perfection of how we ordered and the sauteed morel mushrooms were garlicky and tender. I just want to thank you and your staff for an amazing final dinner in the states to compliment a special evening. We will be returning upon my return home. Thank you again 801 Chophouse for being fantastic.

Wonderful dining experience! A friend who is local recommended the 801 Chophouse to those of us visiting from out of town. The food was excellent, as was the service. We all ordered the fillet, which was cooked perfectly. The restaurant is the only in town to feature prime Nebraska beef. The creamed corn and creamed spinach were phenomenal. The scalloped potatoes were okay, nothing to write home about. The food is a bit pricey, so bear that in mind. If you are willing to spend a bit of money for a good meal, this is a great option.

My wife and I had dinner at 801 Chophouse before a performance at the Orpheum and am sorry that we had to rush through the dinner. The Service was great and they were very engaged with our time limitation but still worked hard to make our visit memorable. The food was delicious and the wine list was extensive. Add it all up and it made for a great evening spent at 801 Chophouse! Even if we did cut it short.

UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE I WILL ALWAYS RECOMMEND 801 AS THE BEST RESTAURANT IN OMAHA, HOWEVER MY LAST VISIT MONDAY MAY 20TH WAS AN OFF NIGZHT FOR THIS USUAL HIGH QUALITY RESTAURANT. I DON'T KNOW IF MONDAY NIGHT IS A BAD NIGHT IN GENERAL, POSSIBLY DIFFERENT KITCHEN CREW OR IF THEY WERE USING UP STOCK LEFT OVER FROM THE WEEKEND BUT FOOD WAS NOT UP TO PAR.....TOO MUCH ANISETTE IN THE CREAMED SPINACH, TOO MUCH SAGE / THYME IN THE DOWN SOUTH SHRIMP, FRIED SQUID / CALAMARI PIECES BIG AND TOUGH, SHRIMP TOUGH AND TASTELESS, VEAL CHOP SCORCHED AND NOT USUAL MEAT TEXTURE ALMOST LIKE IT WAS STILL PARTIALLY FROZEN WHEN IT WAS PUT ON THE GRILL......APPARENTLY STAFF WAS AWARE THAT THINGS WERE NOT RIGHT AND OFFERED GIFT CERTIFICATES WHEN THEY PRESENTED THE CHECK......STILL MY FAVORITE AND I WILL BE BACK.....JUST HOPE 801 GETS BACK TO AND MAINTAINS ITS HIGH QUALITY FOOD INGREDIENT CONTROL AND PREPARATION. THANKS
