Everything was outstanding. Our first time there to celebrate our anniversary. Can’t wait to go back for more cocktails & cheese. The flank steak & rabbit were fantastic. Try the crudo too.

The staff at Boiler Room made our anniversary an evening to remember. They put us at a fun table with an awesome view of the kitchen which was perfect for a pair of foodies like us! The staff was fun and played off of our good time throughout the entire meal. It’s a true Omaha gem for sure!

The dining chairs were worn, old, and unbelievably uncomfortable. The cheese plate and starter were amazing. However, the main dishes lacked seasoning and acid. We were disappointed in the halibut and sea bass dishes. Loved how espresso was available.

We had a wonderful time. The reason for my ratings .... while the food was great, I felt the menu was very limited .... I suspect that is intentional for numerous reasons. While the wine list was phenomenal 👍👍👍 I would have liked to have a few California options. The Sommelier explained the rationale to me (and totally understand), I’m a Napa/Sonoma type.
Would I recommend the Boiler Room ...... certainly!

The Boiler Room was perfect. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable. The food was exquisite. We had the wagyu sirloin, baked halibut, and a panna cotta dessert that was worth the trip by itself. The restaurant itself was clean, quiet enough to have an intimate conversation for the two of us, and decorated nicely.

We happened to be in Omaha during our wedding anniversary. So glad to have an excuse to go to the Boiler Room! Such creativity and attention to detail. We had a great table overlooking the kitchen. My favorite dish was the Spanish Octopus with tasty confit potatoes and a slice of delicious black squid ink bread that made me think of the ocean. Sommelier was very helpful in choosing a wine to accommodate both our tastes. The grilled black bass was outstanding. We ended the meal with a simple cup of coffee, and were delighted it came with incredible chocolate almond biscottis.

Don't trust the online menu. We had our entrees chosen and neither were available. Gluten free options or accommodations were extremely limited. Went there for a special occasion and ended up having a couple of appetizers and some cheeses in place of entrees. When we ordered the cheeses, the wait person snootily informed us was something that was intended to be French style - served after the meal. I feel pretty certain I've spent more time in France than she ever will.

Food (party of four: appetizers, main courses & deserts) was excellent as usual. Service was not up to normal standards. One guest ordered a gin & tonic but got a gin & soda which the server did replace but this meant we all waited to drink our cocktails until the correct drink arrived. In the past, the staff comp’d for such mistakes but didn’t this time (we’ve never asked for a comp). Sommelier was spot on with her wine recommendation for the dinner.

Exquisite meal (scallop crudo and pork belly w/mole). Wines were lovely (orange Puglia and a Saint-Emilion). Service was impeccable—my server was fantastic, really enjoyed our short convo at the end of my meal. A very dialed experience all the way. BR is definitely one of my very top Omaha dining experiences—will be back soon next time I’m in town!
