Had a special night out for our 39th anniversary. Expensive but lots of very good food that is made to share. Waiter was very accommodating at splitting salads and the large porterhouse steak for us. We grow beef cattle, so we know a good steak when we eat one and this was one of the best we have had in Omaha. In the Old Market in enclosed balcony for dining--quiet and very festive for Christmas!

I’ve been traveling for two months now; two stop in Canada, four in the states and one in Switzerland. This was the best meal I’ve had since leaving and possibly one of the best I’ve had ever. I mean, I tried Montreal smoked meat (which was great), Swiss fondue, Tennessee BBQ and New York pizza and this place blows them all out of the water. It’s expensive, sure, but definitely an unforgettable experience.

Food was incredible! Service was fantastic! Would defiantly dine here again! We went for our anniversary and the staff was so nice. The restaurant was a nice quite dining room. There were not very many people here but we went very early - Again amazing food! My husband never likes to order steak in a restaurant that he's not familiar with for fear it won't be good and he was very impressed!

Our business dinner was very successful at Omaha Prime. We had two out of town vendors from Chicago who loved the blue cheese potatoes, crispy spouts and bone-in filets. We were able to sit out on the balcony, which really adds to the experience. Ask for seating out there.

Unfortunately, for a steak house they do not know how to cook a steak. They spell out the definitions of the wellness on their menu but do not follow it. Both my husbands and son's steaks had to be sent back and still returned very rare. It should have been sent back but we did not. Overall disappointing dinner, for $266 for 3 people, should have been so much better.

The food, atmosphere, quality of service, presentation, and alcohol options were amazing. Perhaps the best experience I’ve ever had dining out. I came here with my girlfriend; we were visiting the old market for the first time, and I found this place online. Setting up a reservation was effortless. We sat at a table across from the bar, which was about 5’ from the front of it. When our waiter (Kevin) conferred with the bartender, he went around behind the bar to do it, even though it would’ve been easier to simply do so from where he was standing. Our glasses were never empty or even half-empty. We had menus, but the food on the menu was presented to us on a cart that the waiter wheeled up to us! We spent two hours here from start to finish, and it was probably the most relaxed meal we’ve ever had. Will definitely be coming back to Omaha just for this place. The only thing we would do differently is sit outside. The price is up there, but it is definitely worth it! Expect to spend around $200 for two people with drinks, appetizers, the main course, dessert, and generous tip.

I have eaten at Omaha Prime for years & this was the first time I was very disappointed with Omaha Prime. The truffle mash potatoes had zero taste, they didn't even taste like fresh mash potatoes. The cuts of steak were good & the steam lobster was awful. The only positive part of the night was our waiter, Joe, he was incredible & very attentive.

 (Dallas)·Dined on September 6, 2017

I was exceptionally disappointed. Omaha Prime has been around for decades and never tried, but had heard very mixed reviews.

Upon arriving, we waiting in the 'lobby' alone for 5 minutes before anyone arrived to greet us.

The wine list was very skimpy and limited.

The food was very disappointing and uninspiring. The salads were average and the appetizers sat in the back for a while as the crab cake was served lukewarm.

We order the large bone in Tomahawk Rib-eye. It was served under cooked and was sent back to be properly prepared. They 'claim' this is a prime cut, but the lack of marbling makes me question the quality of the meat. Also, it was thin - maybe 1/2 inch. AND, they charged $95 for the steak. I'm sorry, I entertain for work all of the time and across the US... this was $40 OVER PRICED. I've received a Waygu steak in the same cut and weight for $15 less.

I would not recommend and certainly not take a client there; they are far better values and far better Steaks in Omaha.

Though the service was impeccable, I was disappointed with my meal at Omaha Prime. I ordered the crab cakes as an appetizer. Though the crab cake itself was average, the sauce it was service on was not got. I believe it was meant to be a hollandaise sauce, but it was cold and flavorless and looked as if it was just the eggs yolks with very little butter. For my entree, I ordered the filet which was dry and overcooked in areas. The blue cheese mashed potatoes were very average as well. I will say my husband enjoyed the prime rib and his sweet potato fries were tasty. I feel this restaurant may have been popular at one time, but not anymore as on a Sunday night, there were only 4 tables sat in the whole restaurant. There are much better options including chains, so I won't be going back.

The steak was not USDA prime as advertised. This was obvious as soon as it was presented on the plate and tasting it confirmed it was probably select. I doubt if it was even choice.
I ate about 10% and spoke to the excellent waiter observing it was not prime. The waiter immediately struck it off the bill. We paid and left.

From our table saw the kitchen part and saw server pick food from the plate and dip it in something and eat it and then serve it. The filet mignon was not good AT all! I wouldn't even pay a small price for this meal. The server was alright and kept complimenting me which was nice was a little odd.

We never actually received service. It wasnt overly busy, but perhaps they were understaffed which still should be planned for in a steakhouse of this caliber. We were seated fine, however, once seated it was 10-15 minutes before anyone came by. Our server greeted us and went to get water and menus. A couple at the table behind us left without menus or water giving us a feeling of dread. Over 15 minutes later we received our menus and water and were asked if we'd like to see the cuts. Another 15 minutes went by and we decided to go elsewhere. Basically 45 minutes of waiting resulted in seeing the server twice and receiving nothing but menus and water. Not what we expected.

I chose this steakhouse for its location to Omaha's fun, relatively low-key nightlife. It has all the hallmarks of a once great restaurant surviving on a too-aged reputation.

The location was dingy, restroom filthy and in disrepair. The staff seemed underwhelmed about their jobs. Ingredients were minimalistic and still stale or gone off. My wife and I both ordered steaks medium rare. Hers was blue, mine was medium well. The wine list was bottom shelf.

As for value, you'd have much better luck at Denny's. A bottle of cheap wine, two steaks and an appetizer for $183. This restaurant needs a resurrection. It's the kind of place you'd see on a Gordon Ramsey show.

First of all, the steaks were delicious. We ordered the brussel sprouts and found them to be mushy rather than crisp. The bread was just okay, not warm. My biggest complaint was my salad which had a well worn, bruised avocado on top. I did let the waiter know about my complaint , even told him I would be embarrassed to serve that avocado to anyone. He was sympathetic but no compensation for the salad , which I would have done , just to be courteous. Our waiter was very pleasant and helpful but for the money charged, I thought this restaurant was a B- at best. Considering it carries the name Omaha, I had high hopes for higher standards.

Three of us had an early supper at Omaha Prime mid week. The staff was most gracious and vert attentive. The atmosphere was lovely and soothing. The only complaint was the prime rib. It was extremely hard to cut thus chew and the color and texture of the meat was very unappealing. Our filets were cooked to perfection and quite good. The sides were delicious and ample. I would eat here again but would not select the prime rib.
