Great ambiance, terrific meals and entree selections! Would make this a destination again for intimate to a party of 10.
Council Bluffs has hit a home run with this restaurant! It has a varied menu, and everything I’ve ordered has been delicious. The wait staff has been attentive and courteous.
Food was great. There were seven of us and everyone liked both their meal and the specialty drinks. Two thumbs up!
Mother’s Day brunch was impressive. Loved the endless mimosa!
Good good and service.
one of our favorites. a gem in council bluffs. 3 of the 4 of us had the short ribs and it was great food for a fair price. had the hazelnut chocolate cake for desert. a MUST
One of our favorite places to go I'm Council Bluffs. Service is wonderful and everything we have tried has been fantastic! So glad we have such a great spot in CB and would recommend to everyone!
Great bar scene and happy hour
Came across this place while staying in Omaha. Nice vibe and great food, and the service was top notch.
Most incredible food and atmosphere!! Superior Service
First time at 712 for brunch. It was very tasty and the service was excellent! I had an Open Table reservation and even though we were a half hour early, they were able to seat us right away. It was a nice day so we sat outside. Would like to go at night sometime for dinner. Will definitely be back and bringing friends!
Amazing food, as always. Great place for Easter brunch for our family of 6. Thank you for a wonderful Easter morning.
The food was amazing and the staff were absolutely wonderful and friendly.
As always, the food and service were outstanding. I haven't eaten anything there that I didn't like.
Had a wonderful time and great service for my Daughter's 23 birthday.
A favorite of ours. Never know from visit to visit what will be on the menu but it’s always great!
Great food and great people. One of our favorites!
The best food in Council Bluffs! Highly recommend this restaurant. Everything on the menu is delicious and the atmosphere works for a quick casual meal or a special occasion.
Waitress was EXTREMELY helpful.
Overall, the restaurant was very small which caused a significant amount of noise. We had 5 people at a 6 person table and couldn't hear anyone at the other end without yelling. It looked like there were only about 2 - 3 servers total and our server had a hard time keeping up. We didn't get refilled, an appetizer got missed (which was discounted but not removed from the bill). The portion size on the entree I got (chicken parmesan) was not worth 20 dollars and the "side salad" came on the same plate as the entree which I, personally, don't love -- but others might. The nachos appetizer, which is incredibly expensive for an appetizer, came in a small bowl. Again, the value just wasn't there. However - the food did taste ok. The menu was interesting. The restaurant decor was cool and the patio looked nice.
Great brunch menu. Great food.
Food was great, maybe a little pricey. The server was good, not very friendly or engaging, but she did her job fine. One bartender on a Saturday night is pretty ambitious. Manager (?) was helping, but never greeted me or my guest. Overall, definitely will go back for the food.
Great service (Emma was amazing) and great food! We were just passing through the area but really happy we stopped :)
We were passing through and found 712 open table. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The beet salad was the best beet salad I’ve ever had. And the mac & cheese with short rib was delicious. If I were coming through again I would certainly stop here
All four of us ordered very different entrees and they were all fantastic! I recommend reserving a table as we wouldn’t have been seated otherwise.
Service and food were fantastic... like always! So glad that Janie & Ryan chose to stay & invest in their hometown!
it was a little cold in the restaurant, but the food and service were great!
Good food, good service, great little place for a date
Food was excellent. Service was attentive but not distracting. Modern ambience; average to smaller size brunch location and menu. Highly recommended.
We've been to 712 twice now, and the food is very, very good. On this occasion, however, we waited far too long (15 min.) before a server stopped by our table, and again too long (12 more min) for the drinks we ordered. We had to ask to place a food order, with the result we had to rush our meal to make a show - which was too bad because all four of us really liked what we ordered. The noise level was a bit much to easily converse. All-in-all, though, if in that part of town we'd go back - though partly that's because there's nothing this close to good nearby.
As always 712 is an exceptional restaurant. Beer and wine selection is very good, especially the beers. Lots of variety of craft beers from both local and regional brewers. Food is excellent. The menu is a little limited but there are always off the menu specials along with a nice variety of handhelds and entrees. It’s definitely our go to place for dining and with friends in Council Bluffs.
Excellent service and food choices. Nice spot for lunch with visiting family.
OMG!!! This restaurant was a WONDERFUL find! My husband is 73, I'm 65 and we both not only enjoyed the wonderful menu, but also the friendly, yet sophisticated, staff!
Great food and drinks!
The only issue is that the wind howls into the door when it is opened. Making the small space very cold.
Another wonderful experience at 712. Cedar Plank Salmon is amazing. And the Bayliss cocktail is a must.
Really good service and quality food. I keep bringing people here because I know I will never have to make an excuse about my choice.
Food and service was very good. I am never disappointed at the 712. The chef never ceases to amaze me with his skills.
Great service, a little on the slow side for getting the food out considering they were not busy when we ordered. Ashley our waitress attentive and friendly. All of the food was appealing to both the eye and the tastebuds. We will definitely be back.
Loved our waitress. Super fun and great service. I took my staff for a holiday lunch and they were very sweet and told us to take as long as hang out as long as we wanted. They have a unique menu with many great options. I would definitely go there again.
