Marks, established in 2003, was built into a historic, turn-of-the-century home nestled into a quaint business district in Omaha’s historic Dundee main-street neighborhood that has thrived since the early 1900’s.
Marks’ vision for the menu is to create dishes with a hint of French influence, balanced with some Asian accents, along with good old American.
PLEASE NOTE: We accept online reservations for the main dining room only. If you would like to reserve a private dining room, please call. Patio tables are on a first come-first served basis.

Private party facilities
Marks has several areas available for private dining for groups as small as 5 people up to 20. These private spaces have become the favorite for many Marks regulars, as they are almost like dining at home – charming, intimate, and yet fully indulged with good service and Marks’ fine food.

It seems Marks gets better every time we visit and that’s not even necessary! Meals are fairly priced for the quality, the wine list has a varied selection and our server was both personable and knowledgeable. The low ceiling makes it somewhat noisy depending on other diners but that still makes it one of the best in the City. Dundee has its parking issues which can be a deterrent but you will deal with it if you want a first rate dining experience.

I love the ambiance of Marks and the location is ideal to where we live but we always struggle with the service or the food; we either get great service but food is so-so or great food and bad service. This trip we had an issue with the noise level; it was soooo loud. We had a table of 6 and I felt like we were yelling at each other to be heard over the other diners. Then downstairs at JamboCat they started playing music and it got even louder as everyone in the restaurant was trying to be heard over the band downstairs. I love a lively restaurant and noise levels aren't usually on my radar but this just seemed worse than usual. In fact, one person at the table ordered the Croque Madame and ended up with a chicken dish because our server couldn't hear him. The server did offer to make it right but he was happy to eat it (and said it was delicious!) but she did take the chicken off our bill which we felt was more than fair. Maybe the restaurant is better suited to 2 diners that way you can hear each other yet it's not so quiet that you feel like the whole restaurant is listening to your conversation.

I had not been to Marks for quite some time. Not sure why because it was outstanding in every way! Great food ( there were 6 of us so I saw a nice variety), great service, great atmosphere and great wine list! It’s a quaint little neighborhood spot. If you are in Dundee or simply want a great dining experience - go! (They have a wonderful outdoor patio for summer but it was too chilly so we did not get to enjoy it)

Nice spot for dinner with friends. The menu has a wide selection of dishes so there is something for everyone. Creatively inspired combinations, too. Our server seemed distracted and food delivery was slow, even though she only had a few tables. Great location in the middle of Dundee and charming atmosphere.

We found it over priced. A margarita was served in a lowball glass full of ice. The price, $9.00. The food was mediocre. The water served lukewarm. Lunch was $80 for 3 people. Nothing special in a city where there are thousands of restaurants. We won't be back.

Daughter chose Mark's Bistro for her birthday dinner. The fish special for the evening was spectacular, the Brussel's sprouts were delicious as always, and the cheese selections included a blue cheese that was incredible. Satisfied with service except I specified it was for a birthday, yet no one asked about that fact or indicated they even recognized the occasion. Why ask on the reservation if you don't make effort to celebrate your returning patrons? Might have been an oversight, but they were't very busy, we were an early seating at 5:30pm, and considering our bill was for seven people, I think a complimentary piece of cake for the bday girl would've been a nice touch and shown attention to detail. Never once has a manager stopped by our table when we're there, which I find odd as many restaurants in Omaha add this special touch to inquire on the customer's satisfaction and would be helpful.

Mark's has kicked-up the food a notch or two! Flavorful, creative selections. Reservation was ready on time. Pleasant, efficient staff. Definitely a neighborhood gem! There's a reason Marks had outlasted most others in the Dundee neighborhood. Great for lunch or dinner, with craft cocktails on street level @ Jambo Cat! Worth a visit!

Mark's is usually a lunch spot for us, but this time we went there for dinner before a concert at the Holland Center. Food and service, as always, were great. We were in and out in a timely manner (but not rushed) with plenty of time to make it to the concert.

My wife and I enjoy Mark's, and have made it our special occasion spot. The food is always terrific, and we really enjoy the atmosphere.
One negative about our last visit (on a fairly cold evening).
We were seated on the far end of the dining room, and toward the end of our dinner, somewhere back in the kitchen area, an outside door was opened for an extended time period. The cold air was notable at our table for quite a while, and effected our enjoyment.

I'd came to Mark's once before, but I had only tried a few cocktails, and snacked on the mac and cheese. After trying their snack sized mac, I was in love and just knew that I would return to try their dinner menu. We came back on Valentine's day for dinner and it was lovely. We started with the tots, which were amazing, and for dinner I had the butternut squash risotto. The flavor was wonderful; very rich and comforting, perfect for a cool winter night. The service was great too. I will be back again so that I can try for things from their vegetarian fare.

Delicious cuisine. I had a charcuterie board with 2 meats and 2 cheeses it was excellent! My husband had the lamb burger and hosue chili and it was very tasty and perfectly cooked. We shared the mousse duo for dessert and it was sooo decadent and smooth. Great early valentines celebration together. We were seated next to the window which was very romantic and we could people watch at the same time.
