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.

It was a cold snowy day but we had a birthday to celebrate so out we went! Restaurant was very quiet due to weather. There were 4 of us so veal, Mac & cheese, farm salad and gnocchi where what we ordered. Food was very good. Two complaints however the gnocchi serving was way too small. Portions for all other meals were large not sure why gnocchi was short changed. Dessert was excellent-chocolate mousse cake and lemon lavender cake. The waiter was overly chatty, shared stories of his childhood etc which felt intrusive, maybe he was lonely!

'Brushi's is one of our "go-to" spots when we need to have a reservation and want great food, great service and an easy conversation spot. The food was it's usual- great, however the service on this particular Saturday evening was less than great. Server was slow and not very attentive. One of our table-mate's entrees did not arrive until after the rest of the table had almost finished their entire meals (~25 mins late). There was an apology from the server, but no accommodation on the bill or an offer of a complimentary cocktail or dessert. We were surprised and a bit embarrassed, as we had spoken so highly of the restaurant to our out-of-town dinner guests. We will try Brushi's again, but perhaps not on a busy Saturday evening....

Went on spur of the moment and got reservations on Opentable no problem. Had table ready as well as high chair for our grandson. First time there. Food selection was moderate but felt the prices were a little high. Paid $12 for mozzarella salad that was pretty but had 3 small pieces of cheese and 7 pieces of tomatoe. Burger was a little high for just a regular lettuce, tomatoe and fries on side. Two of our party had salads which were fresh and average size. The salmon was the best dish of the five. Our server was great. Sorry I didn’t catch his name. Would go again but maybe try one of their specials versus the price for other dishes.

Four of us dined here early in the evening before a movie. There were few tables open but we were seated in a very cold corner. Asked to move and were told sit anywhere in the side room. Not particularly friendly reception. Ordered two appetizers and both were very good but portions were pretty skimpy for price. All four dinners were delicious with just right portions. Veal special was very good. Service was OK, friendly but not very attentive. Overall good experience and would return but not a 'go to' place.
