Awesome food. We were seated right away and even though we were in the dining room we could hear the live music in the bar. We had a great family dinner!i highly recommend the spinach dip and the filet!

The service from Rita was outstanding! She did a fantastic job. The food was, unfortunately, not at the same standards as she is. I had marsala chicken. The chicken was pounded to the point of having a babyfood-like consistency. The texture was incredibly off-putting. I had the salad wedge and it was absolutely doused in dressing. The sweet potato fries were outstanding. The wild rice tasted burnt. The carrot cake dessert was very good, but I do not believe it is made in house. The ambience was OK and surprisingly quiet. If I were choosing the spot to dine, I would not return any time soon.

Everything was great! The only things I would of changed would be, our salads came out very small and the sever had to get more lettuce for us. The server also seemed very overwhelmed and needed to slow down and maybe be a little more personable. All in all it was a great dinner and we would definitely return to Gorat’s!

This was not what I was expecting. The food was mediocre at best, the ambiance was not a romantic dinner destination, and the price was ridiculous. I will not be returning. It had plastic table cloths, it was too brightly lit, and was more of a Dennys atmosphere. It was one big room with tables quite close together and several birthdays going on with singing and candles, which was a bit disruptive. Disappointed to say the least.

Food was OK. Presentation was not outstanding. Basic dish was good but the other sides were not presented well and were over cooked. Menu was short and did not reflect the great values that the regular menu has.
Service was outstanding.

Noise from bar was excessive

Seating was outside the restrooms and traffic to and from was irritating while trying to enjoy meal

Service was great from the server and hostess. Bartender was overwhelmed with number of orders, but good. Two of the three steaks at the table were sent back because they were medium or medium well when both were ordered medium rare. Only complaint about ambiance was the weird paintings of farm animals (hard to look at a painting of a cow while eating a steak). There was a music recital going on in the bar area that was interesting.

It was nice. But not superb compared to the cost.
That is, for the price I would have expected more culinary innovation and presentation. Decor wasn't overwhelming warming.

Great prime rib. Service was excellent. However I was not a fan of the little package of sour cream. I’d prefer if the kitchen staff dress the baked potato and maybe offer a fully loaded option. Otherwise great meal and will be back!

Food was good, prices were good. Ambiance is very loud and the waitress seemed annoyed. Food took 45 minutes, they were out of prime rib so I had to settle for a steak instead.

The menu was very good and the steaks were excellent. Someone in our party had a parmsean dish and said it was the best they had every had. The beer selection really good and cocktails were great. Only thing would have liked would have been to have one green vegetable alternative to carrots (even though carrots were great). The wedge was also really great!

All four in our party loved everything we ordered. Rita, our waitress was outstanding! The salads were cold and crisp, entrees cooked to perfection, the music from the lounge was terrific. We have loved Gorats for years. It is our favorite steak house in Omaha. It has the "good old days" feel with an updated look. We will return and recommend that you give it a try.

We ate dinner at Gorat's this recent Christmas Eve. Our waitress, Rita, was awesome, friendly, helpful, and efficient. The meal was fantastic....from the prime rib to the potato soup and chicken parmesian. Everything was excellent. We will happily eat there again. We made reservations through OpenTable and couldn't have been happier!

I have been going to Gorat's for over 30 years and this was probably the worst "service" we had. I think they were significantly understaffed and it reflected in our service. While the food was on point as usual, there are so many other options that have great service that it may be a while before we return.
