Food was delicious and super fun, service was great and they did an awesome job making people feel very comfortable with their COVID precautions. Well spaced out, masks required unless at your table and very clean. Celebrated a great birthday, even gave us a special birthday menu! Always a favorite for a little extra special dinner or date and I always recommend.

Anniversary. We were very pleased and excited to find that they had a private area reserved tucked away for us in the middle of the open-air-feel wine cellar. Very intimate setting and an awesome restaurant. Food is also fantastic. 5 stars all around.

Our dining experience was a 10 from start to finish. Our table was ready, the server came right over, all courses we’re phenomenal, our drink glasses never empty and we can’t wait to go back. The ambiance is quaint and charming. We loved it.

Our experience was divine. Limited menu because it changes daily. The honeybell squash soup was a symphony in a bowl and the pork loin was the most perfectly composed plate. Paired with a lovely 2011 Barolo and finished with the lemon verbena Panna Cotta. Service was impeccable, ambiance sublime. If you are in Omaha, make this your destination. Bravo Chef Tim and your exceptional staff. Bonus to watch the perfectly choreographed ballet in the kitchen!

Always a great meal when we go here. Sat outside and the tables are small as are the chairs but it was fine for just 2 of us. We both had the grouper and it was delicious.

Celebrated our anniversary here and they went ABOVE + BEYOND. This was our first time at the boiler room + We will be coming back all the time now!

They did anything + everything to make us feel special, from customized menus wishing us a happy anniversary, champagne, to just overall exceptional service. I can’t forget to mention how outstanding the food was! Such a cool experience to watch the chefs create such delicious masterpieces!!

The boiler room does everything right! A must-go place to lace for sure!

Much better this time around, due to new management I assume.
The small plates were innovative and tasty.
Service and timing was on par as well.
We will certainly put this restaurant back in our rotation.

Octopus appetizer was excellent but the roasted black grouper was over the top. Wine list is extensive. Our choice was an excellent Italian orange and did not create financial ruin. Definitely would return

Such a lovely way to celebrate our first wedding anniversary! We had our wedding dinner at the Boiler Room exactly one year ago. We truly appreciated the Chef’s attention and the great comfort level for our first inside dining experience during the pandemic. Food was delicious and we were great helped in our wine selection. Hope to be back in a couple of weeks for my sister-in-law’s birthday!

Love this unique place. It is an intimate dining experience. Although I prefer to sit downstairs, the upstairs was still very nice. The chef provides a wide variety of amazing food to choose from. The service is always very personable. Plan on being there awhile as they do not rush you between the different courses of the meal.
