    Our first time eating here. It was delicious! On Thursday they have a mini pri fixe with salad or soup, entree, dessert & a glass of wine for $35. What a bargain for a delicious meal in a lovely restaurant. We will be going back soon.

    Good ambience with excellent lighting. Quiet enough not to have to raise your voice to talk at your table. The short-rib omelette for brunch was outstanding — the flavors were perfect,

    Our new favorite restaurant in West Omaha! Beautiful decor, amazing service, and incredible food. The chef was very accommodating with my food allergies & everything was absolutely delicious. This is a hidden gem. And such a great value. Very affordable relaxed fine dining. Great wine selection & the wine sommelier was very helpful. Cant wait to go back!

    Saturday night was not busy which confirmed our experience. There was no bartender and no cocktails available, only wine or beer. Fascinating that a small shop has a Sommelier who did not visit our table when we ordered wine and who was unable to help out the bar in a pinch. In addition, front of the house seemed over staffed so no one was cross-trained in that area. Each of us ordered a salad. Agreed there was too little dressing making them both dry and tasteless. Bread was served with a cranberry butter with garlic making it both sweet and savory, which was a miss. Our two entrees were the filet and seasonal fish special that was seared and delicious. My husband was disappointed in the filet but when a chef serves a filet sliced and paired with a heavy sauce it probably should not be ordered. My husband ordered crime brûlée for dessert which he said saved the whole experience . I hope they can make some staffing improvements and a few tweaks in the kitchen and make a go of it but we won’t be back.

    Foreign Taste is an unexpected gem! Everything about the restaurant is better than you might imagine…it has a fine dining vibe that is also casual and inviting, the service is exceptional and the menu has just enough choices…a delightful selection but not overwhelmingly too many. We love the flawless wine pairings and tasting menu. You will discover new wines from around the world along with artfully presented small plates. Highly recommend Foreign Taste as a place to dine w friends, or a special night out. You won’t be disappointed!

    This was our first exprience with A foreign taste. Music was too loud for only 4 people in the restaurant. Food was cold when we got it and not good. We had received a gift card to celebrate our anniversary and decided to share it with the couple who had given it to us. I felt bad for them since they had spent $100 for the gift card and I could see they were as disappointed as we were. I'm pretty sure we won't be coming back.

    We love this place but the food was not as good. The portions were very small, came out room temperature and not hot, and the fish was overcooked. This is the first time this has ever happened so I hope they just had an off night.

    My wife and I visited for our first time to celebrate our 5th anniversary. We decided on the tasting menu and it was incredible. Every dish was exciting and delicious, and the wine and cocktails were fantastic. The manager was really friendly and funny, visited the right amount with us and the whole staff congratulated us at some point. Will 100% be back.

    Overall, a very good dinner. Crab cake appetizer was good, but would like to have seen some bigger chunks of crab in there. Main course we had filet and snapper. Both were very good. Steak was cooked perfectly and the sauce was awesome. Snapper was fresh and very good. Cocktails were just okay. Seemed more of a wine place than a cocktail place though. Crème brûlée was fantastic. Service was fun, but, unfortunately, not great like you’d expect from a place like this. We had fun with her, but it was her first night and she made several mistakes. The industry is so short staffed we understood.

    I have eaten at this restaurant twice. Once for dinner which was superb and once for brunch, also superb. The servings are just the right size. Not the humongous ridiculous servings at less refined restaurants. I had desert with dinner which was also great and their specialty cocktail, wonderful. The staff was very attentive.
