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.

Everything that we had was amazing! The vichyssoise was delicious, the only complaint was that the celery garnish was too big to be eaten in one bite.

The food was so good, especially the spring vegetable risotto. We also loved the s’mores dessert. The atmosphere was lovely and our service was perfect. The waiter did a great job of being attentive without being overbearing. We will be back.

I made reservations for our wedding anniversary, but they could not reserve the outdoor seating. I was bummed, but very nice about it. We were sat at a very small two-seater table inside by the window right next to another four-seater table. Not the best seat for a wedding anniversary seat... HOWEVER, they immediately found a table outside. It was a beautiful night, we had the 8-piece charcuterie tray (yum!), a couple glasses of Gen 5 cabernet (yum!), and some dinner. I had the warm spinach salad with egg, my husband had the 8-oz ribeye. The sauce on the ribeye was a a little off to me, but he enjoyed it. Service was great. Ambiance outstanding. Thank you for a great night!!

Both my wife and I had the chicken salad sandwich, very good. She ordered a side of asparagus and although it tasted fine the portion was a little small. I enjoy Marks and plan to return again.

We've been to Mark's before so this wasn't entirely a surprise. Our server was great and very attentive and helpful. Our table (for four) was spacious and in a good location. Everyone at the table enjoyed their food *but* each of us had one or another issue with our meals. The menu was one of those that I call "restaurant froo-froo" meaning there are terms thrown in there seemingly to condescend to an average diner. The biggest negative by far was the noise level, caused largely by a couple of raucous tables near us and, later, vibrations coming from the bar below us. Consequently, we couldn't hear each other talk, which detracted from the evening.

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!
