About Marks Bistro

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.

Mark’s Bistro is my absolute favorite restaurant in Omaha. Their service is impeccable. They were very professional yet polite and understanding. A member of my dinner party accidentally knocked a glass over (it broke), and they were so casual about it. They were prompt to pick up the glass, and they even remain my friend’s dinner in case anything got in it. Also, they are very accomidating for service dogs. Their food is always unique and delicious. I’ve never disliked anything on their menu. Their wine list is also amazing. They have wine from all over the world! I highly recommend this restaurant for your next night out.

We love this place! Food is delicious and wait staff professional and friendly. This is the first time I felt the desert was overpriced for the size. I ordered the creme brulee, it was about 4 bites and half the size of other nice restaurants, for the same price. Everyone in our party loved their main course.

Marks in Dundee is an absolute gem! I have recently moved to Omaha and take everyone who visits me there for dinner. Most recently, my mother was in town and Marks was the perfect spot to celebrate her birthday. It was a beautiful fall evening so we sat outside. The seating area is quiet and cozy filled with colorful flowers and lush greens, a little oasis. Marks has a nice (and reasonably priced) wine list with both wine by the glass and/or bottle. Mom likes sweet and light were I prefer rich and red so it was easy to accommodate both tastes. We shared the charcuterie board which includes: 3 - 5 cheeses, house-marinated olives, fresh green apple, house jam, whole grain mustard & blackberries yum! The menu is creative and interesting, Mom enjoyed the ARANCINI which is breaded and fried risotto stuffed with sweet corn and mushrooms w/ roasted red pepper aioli & basil pesto and I had the SEARED TUNA NICOISE SALAD both were delicious. We finished with CRÈME BRÛLÉE, MOUSSE DUO and house coffee. Everything was perfect and my Mother could not have been happier!
Thanks for a divine evening of dining!!!

Our dining experience was a fifty fifty split of good and bad. First the bad...the dinner I wanted to order was not available. Then my friends pork carnitas was delivered to the table with a live fly crawling over the food! Really!!! To top it off the ricotta tortellini I ordered was stone cold, the ricotta filling was dry, and the texture of the pasta was so rubbery it was difficult to eat. Two of the four entrees, the chicken lasagna and mac n cheese, looked good. Marks has to do better to keep my business.

First time trying this restaurant and found it to be enjoyable. Ordered chicken lasagna and crispy skin chicken fricassee, both of which were very good. Pleasant atmosphere, nice view, and excellent service. The outside dining space looked very inviting, but it was cold and raining when we went. I would like to go back in the summer.

I had the tacos and my wife had the cheeseburger, both were great. The food is consistently good. The chef and kitchen staff take pride in their work! The staff are hard working and I include the bartender, they are always busy doing something when we go. The hostess is always nice and professional.

My monthly lunch group (active retirees) met here again last week & it was delish as always. The new fall menu includes a wonderful curried squash soup; worth a trip just for that! Several in the group got the signature mac & cheese (Omaha's best!); the sliders & fondue are other tasty favorites. Really, everything here is tasty and yet moderately priced. Comfort food at its best!

DW and I had "date night" away from the kinder and decided to go to Marks. We live about 25 Minutes from Marks, but it was definitely worth the drive. We were seated immediately, on the cozy patio.

We started with their charcuterie board, which was wonderful. DW had the mac & cheese and I had the crab / scallop risotto. Both were fantastic, though I do wish I would've received the same (larger) portion as DW got with the mac & cheese. Nevertheless everything was great, including the service.

We'll definitely go back!

I have been to Mark's twice in the last 2 weeks. The food is divine and the service is fabulous! Love the outdoor area and my only issue with indoor dining is that it can be a bit loud in certain areas. Yet this wouldn't stop me from eating there again very soon!! Love the neighborhood and the atmosphere!

This is our 4th or 5th visit in an effort to go at least once a month year around. It's been my favorite restaurant to go for years but I only went once a year or so. So far I'm still enjoying myself, the food, atmosphere and staff. Our server (is that term still appopriate?) was fine, she may have been a little off her game but was fine for us. I had the portobello sandwich and my wife the sliders and "snack Mack". Not for the super healthy conscious person but not too bad either as far as being healthy since it was a smaller portion. I also had a glass of their Hogue Reisling wine ( I seem to like it, not too sweet). We sat outside with great weather, it's a nice experience! I never complain about prices because I usually look at menus online first, so I know what to expect. If a place is too expensive I don't go. Marks is reasonable as far as price, but i imagine keeping a restaurant going at one and two meals at a shot is hard to do, so I think their prices are fine to OK. Make a reservation and enjoy yourself. So far the staff have been great but one or two bad experiences could change my choice of restaurant in an instant, Omaha has a lot to choose from. Right now I'm staying with Marks and I feel it will always be a nice time!
