    Boiler room is an interesting restaurant that has exceptional food. The service was excellent. The cocktail list is different and fun to try. I live in KC and was pleased to find an excellent and unique restaurant while in Omaha on business.

    We love the boiler room. The food was great and service excellent. The only reason I gave them a 4 is we felt a little rushed this time, but it seemed like they were short staffed. There was no host when we walked in.

    I always love dining at the Boiler Room. They do an awesome job of noting what table you prefer to dine at and seat you there when possible. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the food is unreal. We were lucky and got a seat at a packed Austrian and German wine dinner last night that was incredible and SUPER fairly priced. Can't wait to go back!

    Had the pleasure of snagging seats for the Austrian/German wine dinner. The menu was amazing and the flavors melded together perfectly. The Boiler Room never disappoints with service. Chef Tim and his team are creative with local ingredients and every time we go we are amazed by their talents.

    Take your guests here — or yourself — for a special occasion. Or for an everyday occasion made special! The space is gorgeous: the old boiler room in a historic warehouse transformed into a two-story showstopper. The food is incredible. And the people working here are top-of-the-line: obviously experts at their craft, but also kind and approachable. Five stars!

    Our meal was outstanding from appetizers through to dessert. Service was top notch. It’s always a bonus to have a seasoned server with a personality to boot. For those who are looking for an elevated dining experience in a hip, yet sophisticated environment, this should be your choice. You won’t be disappointed.

    This has been our go to fine dining and craft bar experience for 10+ years, basically when it first opened. We will be back again and again and introduce to others the delicious food and drinks. This last visit we were celebrating our 10th anniversary and they provided us with complimentary bubbly, a personalized menu, picked up flower arrangement for our table from a local florist and set had it placed on our table and treated our kids like VIP. Love. Love.

    Horrible experience. Visited for my wife's 65 birthday. Will never return. This place smells like an old moldy sock. The worst service imaginable. Waited 25 mins after finishing food before anyone came by. Then waited another 15 mins for a desert menu. Never again, food was at best fair. Used to be a great place, not now!

    We enjoyed a great dinner w our son. We’re visiting from out of town and intend to return every time we’re in town. Staff was pleasant, presented the details of each dish, and gave us a great experience. The charcuterie was amazing w house made meats and a tasty mustard. We had the lamb, ribeye, and hangar steak. The restaurant is beautiful and warm. Everyone enjoyed their meal!

    Excellent food. All three of our plates (Swordfish, Waygu, Seabass) we’re outstanding. The service was tepid at best. It seemed that the manager and the server were either new or indifferent. Wine selection was great. Despite having to flag down either the manager or the server for anything it was excellent.

    overall a great experience! man the staff was so good to us! i just couldn’t bring myself to say anything about the deficits in the food. last time i ate here absolutely every bite i put i my mouth was to die for. tonight 70% of it was…. my duck breast was a bit tough i couldn’t finish it. and the fish croquettes were sooooo salty, and i’m a salt fiend. for an average restaurant nothing really to complain about but this place is not only pricey but also just absolutely the best i expect perfection i guess which might be too much to ask 100% of the time.

    Fantastic food as always! This time around I brought in a group of 8. We ordered two bottles of wine and a couple of other drinks. For some reason it took literally 45 minutes to receive our drinks which was a big bummer. The remainder of our experience was great.

    We went to celebrate a birthday, which I indicated on the OpenTable app. When we arrived, the waitress knew we were celebrating a birthday and the menus at our table for two had "Happy Birthday" on them. The service was professional and fun at the same time. Very helpful too, was the staff on menu selections and wine parings. The cocktails were perfectly balanced, the food delicious, and we could have a good conversation without shouting or being interrupted all the time. We will definitely be back. It was wonderful.

Every dish was just the right proportion so we could enjoy every bite without overindulging ourselves. The flavors and textures of every dish were magical. Truly spectacular all around!
