One year anniversary dinner. Steven was an amazing waiter. The Farnham Old Fashioned was delicious. The panko breaded bleu cheese stuffed olives were yummy. We both had the scallops which were perfectly prepared. Brownie skillet with house made vanilla ice cream topped it off. Great place!!

It was fine. Food was very good and the establishment was very clean, organized and comfortable. However, the server does not need to make conversation on every visit; the prices are a bit high for the quantity and quality less than excellent; and the sustainability tax was a shocker. It is extremely higher than all the other standard taxes, which IMHO, is not state regulated and should be restricted to a maximum rate. If no one can effectively articulate the reason for the tax and how it is a fair rate, then do one of two things - don’t charge for it or build it into the fixed price of menu items. It appeared that it is already built into the prices. So glad we did not get dessert though I feel like I paid for one anyway. The tax made the meal forgettable.

It was an okay experience. It’s so beautiful inside and our waitress was great. Our food took over an hour to come out so that wasn’t too pleasing. Also some people’s food were overdone and underdone based on their preference. The cheesecake was delicious and the truffle macaroni! Overall I personally would go back but I’d go back earlier in the evening.

Beautiful spot but they struggled with service, timing and food quality especially for the price. We waited an exorbitantly long time only to receive a cold steak. Neighboring table had the same issue. House made ice cream portion was maybe 2 tablespoons! Not worth it.

We had a very uneven experience. Service was slow and some of the items ordered weren’t very good (wedge salad had way too much dressing and Brussels sprouts were mushy). The steak was ok but nothing special. We won’t go back.

This was our first time here and let me say it was absolutely amazing!!!!! From the start with the hostess to our amazing server! The manager even came by our table to check and see how everything was. The food is not only delicious but the portions for the price was fantastic! We ordered the Ruben crouquettes as an appetizer and they melted in your mouth. My husband got a wedge side salad and I got the Caesar salad. Both out of this world. Now the main course. I got the scallops that had the cauliflower purée, peas and asparagus….so rich and velvety almost. Pure perfection. My husband got the ribeye and the charred corn. It was cooked perfectly and probably the most tender steak we’ve ever had in a restaurant. We ordered the cheesecake for dessert which was just the right way to end a perfect meal. We will definitely be back, I can’t wait to plan our next visit!!!

All in all a good experience, from the wine service to the food service. The ambiance is excellent as well as the noise level.
It seems that the dishes from the apps thru the mains were a little over thought out, thus making a great dish into a slightly
over constructed one.
Our favorite thing was the cauliflower steak gig, which we had as a appetizer.
As I said all in all really good and will return soon.

This is a fantastic place to eat and drink on many levels. The bar has craft cocktails with their own creative twist. Small bites sampled were excellent. The restaurant's menu and food are first-rate with a choice for every type of appetite from meat lovers to vegetarian. And the atmosphere, design and energy all work for occasions from casual to celebratory. We'll be back with friends!

Went for a birthday dinner. Our server Baylen was wonderful! very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu as well as drink choices. Had never heard of this place and thought we would give it a try when someone recommended. Will definitely return! Also seems like a good place to just go hang at the bar for a drink and an appetizer.

Our entrees were amazing. But that fire roasted corn bread was like eating 6 day old cardboard that had been rained on. Made soggy. Than dehydrated in the desert sun. The condiments were delicious though. Our waitress Jessica was upbeat and friendly. And the managers stopped to talk to every table. The open kitchen was a dream to look at. And cocktails were refreshing. Definitely made my anniversary special.

This is a relatively new restaurant in the Old market area of Omaha. It has been open about a month. We liked the atmosphere, decorating and open kitchen concept. Business was slow so not many tables and the noise level was fine. I’m not sure how it would be if crowded. Menu all done on a tablet. The bar menu had a variety of cocktails, they have a tremendous Bourbon and Whiskey list, but don’t have several of the listed varieties. Our waitress was very pleasant and enthusiastic. Our biggest issue was the timing of the plating of our courses. I wish we had ordered only one course at a time. Things came in fairly rapid succession. The calamari small plate was quite unique and fabulous. They use a light breading and a limoncello cream sauce. Delightful! We ordered the corn chowder and were served grilled creamed corn. By the time someone came back we’d started eating because the brought the entrees out with the corn. So, timing is an issue. That said, my wife had the scallops and they were perfectly pan seared and presented. I had the short ribs and they were well prepared and tender. Very nice seasoning. We got some heirloom carrots as part of the meal and they were cold. I think they will do well as they work through some growing pains. The grilled steak restaurants in Omaha are highly competitive. I hope they improve.

We would highly recommend the Dynamite Woodfire Grill. The wine selection was excellent and the menu offered a nice variety. The staff was experienced and delightful, offering timely service. The ambiance was upscale without being stuffy and the food was well presented. We both ordered the filet, and it was perfectly prepared. We loved the Ipad ordering with photos of every item on the menu. This is a wonderful addition to the dining options that Omaha has to offer.
