The very best of Omaha. Hands down the most interesting and creative cuisine in town. I have been to pretty much every fine dining restaurant in Omaha and everyone else is a distant second. For Omaha, it's pricey, but worth it. Have been here many times and each time the menu is new and updated. The dishes are well presented and taste outstanding. Be prepared to have ingredients that you may have never tried before. Have an open-mind and be amazed. The craft cocktails and desserts are outstanding too. The wine list leans heavy European but is top notch. The service has always been very good, used to be a bit more refined and formal. It is a little more relaxed now, but still very knowledgeable and attentive. The atmosphere is unique and intimate. If you want to impress your date, bring her here!

Celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful dinner. I had the strip loin and wife had the salmon. The food was great and ambiance was perfect for the occasion. Definitely will go back.

Our family had a grand time Friday, December 18th! The food was unique and delicious!! We look forward to returning again to your fine restaurant. And your music choice is perfect for your place. Such a match! Our waitress took great care of us too. Thank you for the experience.

This year instead of buying presents for all of our children, we came to your restaurant for a very fine dinner. We've never done this as a family before. But we shall do it again in the future!

If you have skipped the Boiler Room for the last few years because of the street being torn up, it is time to return. It is the same eclectic space with the same unusual and delicious food and delightful service. Come Back.

We have been multiple times, and it’s one of our favorite places. This time was probably the best food we have ever had there, and that’s compared to other amazing trips there. Always great options and the execution was amazing. Can’t wait to go back

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 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!

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.
