We came for a bachelorette party, Gray was our waiter. He was super helpful, took our pic, and was so friendly. Even gave us recommendations for bars, etc to hit up next! We also loved having a little private tucked in booth and the food was phenomenal! We all highly recommend the blood orange mojitos!

This is definitely one of the better Sushi places in Omaha. WE had a party of 4 and were seated in one of their closed booths which was really nice. It added to the experience I would say. The only downfall I would say this place has is their limited wine menu. Really wish they had more and better options but overall, I highly recommend.

I was looking forward to Butterfish after hearing from friends that the food was excellent-some of the best sushi in Omaha. The food was good. We had sushi, pad Thai, and brussel sprouts. The pad Thai was excellent! The sushi was good, though I wouldn’t say it was anything mind blowing. The brussel sprouts seemed like an afterthought—undercooked and not well seasoned. I was greatly disappointed in the service. I stood at the host counter for 5 minutes before anyone showed up and got no apology. Our wait staff only came by to deliver food. If we needed something, we couldn’t find anyone in the dining room for assistance. I would like to try Butterfish again, but with so many great dining options in midtown Omaha, I am not sure it’s worth my time or money.

All the reviews are glowing, but our experience was average. Hot, don’t think the AC was working. Pork eggs rolls and fried rice were fine, but kind of boring. Our one sushi roll was the namesake, Butterfish, and it was so salty we couldn’t eat it. Saw our waitress when we ordered and when we paid.

Delicious food and great service. The only reason I knocked off a star is that the little "booth rooms" for larger parties are uncomfortable to boot. No air flow - very hot and stuffy. And if you have even mild claustrophobia it's going to be an issue. I would go back if I could guarantee a regular table, but I would absolutely not sit at one of those booths again.

The food was amazing. We were celebrating a BD. The server forgot one of our rolls then broke a wine glass next to my plate and offered to get me a fresh glass but didn't fully clean up all the glass and it was awkward. Didn't comp anything and really didn't apologize. This is one of my favorite restaurants and I have always had stellar service except this time.

I’ve been there once before and the amount of fish/fish quality went down. Very creative roll recipes but I remember getting more of a buttery fish experience the last time around.

Maybe it was an off night or there was something wrong in the kitchen. It took over an hour to get our order of 3 vegan rolls- which fell apart as we went to put them on our plates. It was disappointing since it was the first time I had been there and had heard it was good. They didn’t seem slammed but again it seemed like maybe they were short staffed in kitchen or ran out of rice? Something was wrong with our rolls and the time to make them.

Yo so I took my girlfriend to Butterfish for V Day (made her pay tho) and we had a great time. We turned a drinking glass into a science experiment about icebergs and our wait staff chimed in to help us yield the best results.

The sushi was great, I’d like to recommend the Rocky Balboa and the Mt. Fuji. The rangoons were okay- we both felt that there was more wonton than cream cheese, but the sauce they used definitely made up for it.

The waitstaff were fun and on point. They seemed to be well prepared for Valentines Dat. I wish I didn’t work tonight so I could try out some of their drink specials, so I suppose we will have to go back.
