The food was as always outstanding and the service was great we ll. It was a bit noisy that evening and I think they could improve their wine list a bit.
Overall very good!

Food at Brushi is always perfect-fresh ingredients, good portion sizes, beautiful presentation. Servers are excellent and many have been there for years. Small bar is fun and good spot for a drink. Many good specials nightly and always includes a fresh fish. Highly recommended.

Brushi continues to have excellent food, excellent service and now for summer, they have outside seating on the patio. For appetizers, I recommend the Caprese salad, which is artfully displayed, and the flatbread, which is good for sharing. The fish specials are always creative, and this last time there was a pork chop special with a mushroom sauce and a variety of colorful vegetables which was delicious. The deconstructed banana split for dessert is fun to order and share as well.

We often visit Brushi and always leave happy. We suggest you listen closely to the specials not on the menu. However, their menu has something for everyone, even the best hamburger in west Omaha. Most tables allow you to observe Chef Paul at work preparing your culinary delights.

There was no problem with the reservation. The place was fairly busy for a weeknight. The
service was excellent and the waiter, a lovely woman, was friendly and attentive. The food
was outstanding. Our appetizer was a wonderful salman ceviche. I had braised ribs and my husband had paella. The portion size was perfect. House wines were delicious. What a wonderful time we had.

Brushi is consistently good! The Chef has daily specials which are changing all the time, so we like to try something new each time we go. In particular, he does an amazing job of creating fish specials....always mild tasting with lovely sauces and fresh vegetables on the side. The wait staff are professional and friendly as well.

Visit Omaha once a year from foodie city Denver and Brushi is still one of our favorite restaurants in the world. Perfect place to meet friends who you want to talk to - not rushed, quiet ambiance, non-intrusive but excellent and friendly service with always outstanding food. Try to get there multiple times in the course of a five day visit. Keep up the great work Paul and staff.

My husband had the veal and I had the Brie sandwich...both were delicious and the presentation was beautiful...i'm usually not one to take pictures of my food, but this time I did! Bread pudding was excellent as well. It was my husbands birthday, and they added an edible "Happy Birthday" chocolate to the dessert, which was fun. Prices were fairly reasonable compared to other upscale restaurants. This isn't really a negative, but it is more of an older crowd, if that makes a difference to anyone. My husband I are in our mid-thirties, and seemed to be the youngest people in there by at least 10 years.

My husband and my friends really enjoyed the food and they are seafood and chicken lovers. Myself, I do not care for fish or chicken and thought that the steak was overpriced so I had the pasta dish. The pasta was very well cooked, but the sauce had a spicey after taste that I did not care for. I think I may settle on a salad next time because my husband and friends definitely want to come back.

We have been there before and enjoyed it, but Valentine's Day was a disaster. Although we booked our reservation 3 weeks in advance (and confirmed two days before) they clearly had taken about 25% more reservations than they had space for. They tried to seat us at a little table right next to a glass door that wasn't sealed and it was about 50 degrees with the wind blowing across us. A couple that had reservations just got up from the bar and left. They moved us to a back table, which was better -- except that it was extremely hard to get our server. Then our server actually sat down at the table to take our order, which was uncomfortable. We ordered a glass of red wine to see how it was and then ordered a bottle. Most places won't charge you for the glass then, but they did. The food was bad. My veal dish was so oily that I only ate about half of it. My wife's salmon did not taste good and her stomach bothered her next day.
