About the restaurant
Ever since the first caveman decided to slap a side of mammoth over the cave fire, man (and woman) has enjoyed the flavor of food cooked over a wood fire. At Timber Wood-Fire Bistro, all of our dishes are made from scratch using the highest quality ingredients. They are then cooked either over our state-of-the-art wood burning grill or in a brick oven heated by the embers of logs.
Cooking in this way imparts a slight smokiness as it brings out the natural flavors of the food. A juicy ribeye sizzles and caramelizes, giving the tender beef a gorgeous crust. The homemade dough for our pizzas rises in the heat, and the crust gets to be the perfect combination of crisp and chewy. Vegetables share an entirely new flavor profile when cooked over wood. Dining at Timber brings an experience both classic and innovative. Come eat and drink with us as you watch our fireflies dance above the wood-fired grill.

About the restaurant
For any requests or accommodations for dinner parties of 7 or more guests, please contact the restaurant by phone.

This is a restaurant where steak is the star–where great steak is the rule, not the exception. Mahogany’s steaks are the finest custom-aged U.S. Prime Midwestern Beef, known for its excellence in marbling, texture and flavor. We broil it exactly the way you like it at 900 degrees to lock in the corn-fed flavor. We serve it sizzling on a heated plate so that it stays hot throughout your meal. Selections from the ocean include Australian Rock lobster and the freshest fish daily based on availability. Service will be outstanding, but provided in a casual, less intimidating fine-dining atmosphere.

Everything about the evening was wonderful. The entire staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was prepared perfectly, and the presentation was impressive. While all of the staff was 100% professional and attentive I must say that I was truly impressed with Daniel who was out primary server. He mentioned that he was in training, but he knew the menu perfectly and was extremely well prepared. We enjoyed the experience and will be back! Our compliments to the staff! Carol and Pat Schuster

We had an early 5 pm reservation and enjoyed a wonderful meal with fabulous service in a quiet relaxed atmosphere which was a welcome respite from the noise and energy of the College World Series. Mike, our personable waiter, was very accommodating and made sure we were out the door for the 5 minute walk to the Charles Schwab Field for the 6 pm game. Just be sure to have your reservation in advance! I had the scallops special and my husband enjoyed the steak frites. Prosecco and the wedge salad completed our delicious meal. We always hit Spencer’s when we are in Omaha!

We were pleasantly surprised to see they have kept Jerico's very well! Michelle was our server and apart from not filling my water as often as I would have liked, she was very attentive to my dinner partners drinks. She served us very well although she had other tables, including a large party with kids. Our food was excellent and served piping hot. Overall, a great experience and example for other restaurants!

We had the 6 course tasting menu with premium wine pairing and Anthony did not disappoint. A man with a passion for cooking and the artist’s attitude to match. Hand delivered courses with no pomp & circumstance, no arrogance, no expectation. Bitterly sarcastic conversation made everything even better. We will return!

We always get the appetizer board with various cheeses, dried meats, salmon spread and other appetizers that make for a light introduction to the main courses. Nice atmosphere and pleasant surroundings.
