    We had never been to the Boiler Room, and went for my husband's 75th birthday. We are Covid cautious and asked for a quiet table away from crowds. From the moment we arrived, the entire staff did an amazing job making us feel safe, comfortable and valuable. It was one of the best service experiences we've ever had. Add to that the incredible design of the restaurant that creates an ambiance like no other, and food that awakens your senses, and you have the ingredients of a perfect dining experience and evening. Thank you Boiler Room - you are a phenomenal team with a fabulous concept!

    This is a hidden gem of a restaurant in Omaha. In the old market, but tucked away--not something you would just stumble upon. If you research great restaurants, you'll find it, and will be glad you did.

    The ambiance is beautiful, perfect for a special occasion. The service was efficient and friendly. My only complaint is my food. I called ahead to let them know I was vegan, they were very friendly and said they would let the chef know. I ordered a squash soup off the regular menu that happened to be vegan and was very delicious. My other two options were to take the meat off of one dish and replace it with mushrooms, or a pasta with pesto. I ordered the pasta and could not have been more disappointed. This is a very upscale restaurant, so I really expected something a bit more inspired. The pasta was flavorless. The server did offer to bring something else or take the pasta off my bill. I appreciated the effort bc at $40 plus for the main dishes, I would not have been happy paying that for my tasteless food. If you’re a meat eater, you’ll love it. It’s unfortunate the chefs aren’t more accommodating of non meat eaters, especially considering that the growing trend is to move away from eating animals to plant based diets.

    The ambience is great, the service was wonderful! I was not enamored with the food. Instead of swordfish with sauce it was more like sauce with swordfish... too much and overpowering. It seems to me that the restaurant is trying too hard to be different. For the price, we probably would not go back.

    Our experience was wonderful as always. Huma, our waitress, was wonderful. We had the marinated olives, cheese plate, cauliflower soup, duck and sirloin steak. Everything was wonderful. The duck didn’t have a lot of meat on it so I would lean towards the steak for next time, though the flavor was impeccable. We tried the pear tartlet and the pot de creme for dessert. We were very impressed with the whole experience. We love coming to boiler room for the whole atmosphere, service and variety of amazing cuisine. We look forward to coming again!

    The food is never less than wonderful. Our service felt rushed - not that we felt rushed to finish or leave, but our server talked very quickly and acted like she was too busy to slow down and enjoy her experience along with us. It made the experience feel like it was in a hurry.

    The food is well prepared; the menu includes the appropriate categories, but the choices are not extensive. This is not a criticism, just an observation. There is an excellent choice of cheeses, and the wine list is well chosen.

    Food at the boiler room, never disappoints. I had a new server, I think she’ll be fantastic in the future. She just hasn’t learned how to sell her self yet. However, the hostess and everybody else who visited our table, were outstanding, personable, and delightful to chat with. This is a team that loves what they do and it’s always a treat to come back and enjoy the show.

    The ambiance is sophisticated and beautiful inside the restaurant. Really the only 2 things negative I can say is the menu was very meat/fish heavy for my taste, and the restaurant needs better air circulation since it seemed to fill with the smoke from the open kitchen. But I will gladly return to the Boiler Room, especially if I’m interested in a romantic dining experience. The ribeye and pork chop were outstanding! And all the staff were professional and inviting.
