Lot 2 Restaurant & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
Not the greatest experience which is a real bummer because Lot 2 is usually one of our favorites. The food was not of the quality we’ve come to expect from one of the greatest restaurants in Benson, with many artisan favorites have been replaced with manufactured products; we really miss the house cured meats and house-made ketchup. We’re hoping Lot2 returns to their more farm to table, locally styled roots!
We had one of the cheese + meat boards and it was delicious. This could have been my meal. We also had the flat iron steak with frites, scallops and rillettes. The steak and scallops were prepared perfectly. We've had rillettes that we've liked better at other restaurants. These were kind of dry.
My wife and I started with the small meat and cheese board along with a couple glasses of wine. The meat and cheese board was delicious and paired well with the Mrs Riesling and my glass of Tempranillo. We ordered a nice bottle of Barolo from the extensive wine list which they immediately decanted and let breath while our main dishes, pork belly and spicy sausage were being prepared. Both dishes were perfectly prepared and tasted wonderful. One of Omaha's best eating locales, just a little hard to get to if you don't live in the Benson area.
My Husband and I love Lot 2 and thought of them first to celebrate our Anniversary this year. We had a great waiter and we were very happy with the special extra they provided for our dinner date. We had a wonderful meal and left feeling happy and satisfied. Lot 2 never lets us down, and we are so happy we went with our gut and chose them.
I've tried everything on the menu (including items no longer offered) except the ramen. Ramen and I have a bad history but I was having an extreme sinus issue so I bit the bullet and had it. They do kind of a soup of the day ramen so it changes, this was a thicker chicken stock with bacon, chewy noodles and a poached egg with a bit of chili and onion. I can say this, if I was laying on the couch dying and my mom brought me soup to comfort me, this ramen would have been it.
One of our favorite go-to restaurants, but they recently changed chefs since our last visit. We were not impressed with the food. It was nowhere near the previous quality. My wife got the scallops and there were only two! I got the pork belly, which was at least 50% fat, although it had a good sear. Neither portions were large enough for a meal. If the direction of the chef is to go with smaller portions, then they need to be near perfect in quality, not just so so. We brought friends with us for their first time at Lot 2. After the way we talked up the restaurant from our previous visits, they were not impressed. That said, the cocktails are still top notch.
This used to be our favorite date night spot until now. The menu has changed and the portion size leaves you feeling disappointed and HUNGRY. Previously the food was delicious and unique. Something changed and definitely not in a good way. Unfortunately, we won't be back.
Holy butts! This was my first time at Lot 2 and it was incredible. It is absolutely a gem in the middle of a neighborhood with an interesting character. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, and the food was lights out. I can't say enough about this restaurant.
Enjoyed The restaurant week menu 4 course meal. Everything was beautifully presented and well seasoned. The beet salad had celery root in it which added a different flavor. Th farfalle was quite al Dante. The pork meatball garnished with a pickled onion was very flavorful. The pork belly on barley contrasted nicely. The poached pear had a distinctive taste of cloves. The wine pairings complimented all the food well
We had a party of 4 for Sunday brunch. Be sure to make a reservation - they honor them! It was very noisy & we could barely talk. The food came out timely but it was only warm. The brunch prices were reasonable but the dinner prices are high as to be expected at a French restaurant.
We orders the croc madam and it was spot on! And the chciken and waffles was absolutely amazing. The service was excellent and the brunch prices are decent for the quality of food we had. The chef clearly has great skill. We will definitely go back. We also took home for dinner the Ramen. It was so good!!
Honestly I was pretty disappointed in our visit. We ordered a charcuterie board which was the best part of our meal. My friend got the pork belly which was more like an awkward slab of a pork chop, not like any pork belly I've seen before however she did comment that the side dish with the beans and Kale was good. I got a burger that was medium rare at best when I asked for it to be medium well. The fries were pretty much the bottom of the barrel pieces. The waitress said one of the cheeses on the charcuterie board was out and then came back and said they still had it and then came back and said it was out again so we got a different kind which was fine but didn't appear that she knew what was going on. After getting the board, she forgot to enter our main entrées and so she came back and apologized for that about 10 to 15 minutes later. When she finally came back to check on our food after receiving our main entrées she took my burger back to be cooked more but didn't really offer any sort of remedy. Overall, I'm not impressed.
The chicken dish a very very small for $24. The burger and fries were very good !!! The French press is a must have!! The desert was amazing - Triple berry pie with lemon ice cream!!! The waitress a terrific!!! The bagets that we ordered were burnt and smelled burnt as well.
All in all, a great experience. I would suggest sticking to their extensive wine list, and forego the cocktails. The mixed drinks lacked balance and were overly sweet. The food isn't exactly inventive and the flavors are pretty expected. That being said, everything was prepared perfectly, and was entirely tasty. The highlight of the menu truly is the may and cheese boards. They are very generous, and full of tasty accompaniments.
