I highly recommend for a unique setting - perfect for either a date, an intimate setting or similar.

Food and service were top notch - I had the pork chop- one of the best I’ve ever had!
My dinner dates had the lamb and the snapper- everything was fantastic.

Definitely a unique experience - highly recommended

Took our closest girl friends out to a Valentine’s dinner and had the best experience! They had a Valentine’s Day menu prepared and it was worth every penny. The wine pairings were spot on, the entire experience was just incredible.

My husband and I had dinner at the Boiler Room for his 40th birthday. They created a really sweet "Happy 40th Birthday " menu for him. Our server, Ashley, was incredible. I would highly recommend asking for her! The food was amazing, but in our opinion, the service that we received, is worth just as much as the tasty dishes we had.

Every part of the meal was well designed and well delivered. The menu is small and focused, and the duck liver mousse in the charcuterie platter is was _to die for_. The entrees were delicious, and the wines chosen by the sommelier were perfect accompaniments to the meal, and well within the budget I asked them to follow.

A gem worth returning to over and over. Excellent food and friendly fun/casual service! Mentioned vegan in our reservation and they accomodated an incredible three course meal! The sorbet was rich and surprisingly amazing. Easy to spend $150 for two people with drinks. Parked right outside in their "reserved for boiler room guests" spots; so convenient.

My girlfriend and I are longtime veterans of the restaurant and wine business and were thoroughly impressed. She described her entree to me days later as having been one of the best and most perfectly thought out/executed dishes she's ever had in any restaurant. The bar service and wine list are excellent as well. We will definitely be going back as soon as we can.

Beautiful room coupled with excellent service and delicious food. New Year’s Eve food and wine pairings were thoughtful and interesting. Cocktails at the Boiler Room are always first class. We did our family tradition of a special dinner to bring in the new year and celebrate the old. We never felt rushed and the staff was friendly and added to the evening. First rate experience!!

the food was very good and the help couldn't ask for better. Maybe I'm old fashion but the portions were small for the price. Every time I go to the old market they make the plate like a piece of art. Its nice but I like eating not art work

Once again, the Boiler Room was excellent! Our server was knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions about the menu and wine pairing. We weren't rushed at all, and even received a complimentary cheese plate when our entrees were a little delayed. Superb meal, superb service--definitely worth the price!

Boiler room is our absolute favorite place for a night out! Every special occasion brings us to boiler room, where they not only graciously accommodate our complicated food allergies, but also make every effort to make us feel right at home. We feel so very fortunate to have such a high caliber restaurant in Omaha!

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary here and had an amazing experience. Our menus were customized with "Happy Anniversary" at the top and the waitstaff very knowledgeable. Our food was delicious and the timing of each course was perfect. I had a the Ora King Salmon which was like butter and my husband had chicken confit. We couldn't decide which dish we liked better since both were outstanding. Will definitely be coming back for another special occasion in the future!

Ambiance and service were great. Cocktails were fabulous. Noise level was kind of high. Very limited menu but it covered all bases. Though they were out of the fish entrée, which was a little disappointing. They substituted with a scallop dish which looked good. Only complaint was that many of the dishes we ordered were overly salty. They were very tasty and presented well, but could have used a lighter hand on the salt.
