Went for Omaha Restaurant Week. Enjoyed every moment of the experience. My wife and I were there during the main rush, but our server, Liz was helpful while navigating us through the different menu options. My wife went with the wine pairings and I opted for a couple different cocktails. Tried the basil Manhattan as well as the ten strike. Both were delicious, but the ten strike was a standout with the flavors of anise from the Pernod. Maybe a bit much for the inexperienced diner, but a true win for those that enjoy a treat of absinth. Her wine pairings were spot on throughout each course, the brunello with the steak was amazing! Each course got better and better. The scallops were delicately prepared and delicious with the beet risotto. The couscous with the steak was out of this world, and I’ve never tasted tortellini like that before. I’d recommend Baela Rose to anyone, as you can surely see the craft that goes into each aspect of the plating, wine pairing, cocktails and service. 10 stars!!! Thank you for making our anniversary a wonderful experience. Looking forward to many more visits soon, possibly even before restaurant Week is over!

Love this restaurant. Great food in taste and presentation. Drinks were outstanding. Service was excellent and made the meal experience positive. The Chef came to our table and he was very friendly and made us want to come back in the future. He is a pro and we are confident in his ability to prepare great meals for us.

We went to Baela Rose for Restaurant Week. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The scallops and short ribs were fantastic, as was the corn chowder (although we were disappointed that it was not very warm). Our waiter seemed distracted even though the restaurant was almost empty at 5:30. At one point he spilled water on the table as he was filling a glass, then just walked away. We later mopped up the table with one of our napkins! One diner could not get his attention for a second glass of wine and ultimately had to walk over to the bar to request one. Another time we tried to get his attention, but he was engrossed in conversation with the bartender. The food was very good, but the service did not rise to the high level of the food.

Good food. Poor service! The waitress's attention was hard to get. She didn't want to wait 30 seconds at the table while we went through some of the options with her. She acted like it was huge inconvenience and kept telling us that she would leave while we made our choices and then come back. I ordered a cocktail that was really horrible, and gave it back immediately, but was still charged for it. I would have accepted that in a cheaper establishment but when you're spending close to $200, that's just poor service! On the good side, the food was well cooked and the other cocktail was great! I would not go back there again. Just across the street are Mark's Bistro and Darios, both of which have great food and great service!

Food seemed overpriced for what we got. Bacon was overcooked/tough. Bread on open-faced sandwich was overcooked/tough. For breakfast/brunch menu, surprised no fruit was offered on menu. Lacked healthy choices.

Terrific! We loved the decor (exposed brick, lighting, furnishings) and the happy hour. Dinnner was great too - the sliced potatoe fries with cocktails was an excellent suggestion by our server, Lisa. The “board” was very good, and recommended by most reviewers, but better ones are available at other places.

As always, Baela Rose is exceptional. The cheese plate is beautifully presented and makes a great first course or last course. The butter roasted chicken breast, new to the menu, was terrific. This is clearly one of the top few restaurants in Omaha.

Been to Baela Rose a few times, but have not been for Brunch. I will tell you it’s as good, if not the BEST in town! The chicken and waffles is by far the best I’ve had in Omaha, especially The confit style chicken which was exceptional!!! and they give you a whole waffle, not just half. The amount of food on all of our dishes were really nice to see. French Toast was equally yummy and love the French Press!!!! It’s time to put Baela Rose up there with the Best restaurants we have in Omaha!

the menu is a little limited (choice of 4 entrees) but that may be expected for demanding super fresh ingredients. The food is outstanding. The room is beautiful, the wine list is good, and the service (after an initial stumble) was impeccable. The initial impression was a little negative because when we walked in there was a sign "seat yourself" - not what we were expecting. We sat at a table near the bar and the bartender never acknowledged us (it was not that busy that she could not have seen us) and it was very close to 5 minutes (i know, not an eternity but still) before a server came out to greet us. After that the service was excellent.

Had an awesome experience here for our 5th Wedding Anniversary. My wife and I had cocktails and shared a 4 course meal over a couple hour span. Our waiter was quite knowledgeable and engaged which helped make the meal a memorable experience. They even gave us a complimentary dessert in honor of the occasion.

My husband and I couldn't think of a better way to top off an Omaha Chamber Music Society concert than an early dinner at Baela Rose with our concert-going friends! The ambiance and the professional, warm service offer a lovely tone. Moreover, the appetizers and main courses we have sampled all have been interesting and satisfying. We consider Baela Rose one of the most outstanding restaurants we have found anywhere. (Of course, it helps that the restaurant is open on Sundays and a very short drive from the Omaha Conservatory of Music.)

Baela Rose had one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. A group of friends and I came in to eat, and orders about 7 apps that came out really fast and spaced well. They were all excellent in taste and presentation. The were all the perfect size to share and still be hungry for the main course. Our entrees came out just as fast and were incredible. I tried a little of every entree and would recomend them all, it’s hard to chose. I would highly recommend eating here, it is one of my new favorite spots and will be back. You will not be disappointed.

Food was great! Smaller menu, so I like to think they focus on making each item top-notch, and no one in my party left hungry. Recommend the brisket hash, so good! Host seemed inexperienced, stated I did not have a reservation and wasn't helpful when shown my confirmation and told they'd called me to confirm a week prior. Another staff member quickly remedied the issue and sat us, she was very nice. Server was chatting with other guests while our drinks and then our food sat for well over an acceptable lag time for a busy joint. The food shines here, but the service leaves me iffy as to whether I'd return.
