In from Milwaukee house-hunting and was referred to this special restaurant by our agent. What a great surprise! Amazing food, excellent and friendly service and really fun jazz music. We will definitely return when we move to Omaha!

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!

Grew up going here as a child and it is still as good as I remember. Not a fan of the new decor but may take me sometime to get use to it. Food,and service were amazing.

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.

The food was really good. The service was alright, but it took a while for our waitress to take our order and seemed like a long time to get our food too. I had the Walleye and my husband had the chicken parm. It was good food in a more casual atmosphere. I would go back.

We were greeted enthusiastically. Definitely a throwback right down to the somewhat talented singer in the bar. Friday night music was advertised but we were not prepared for how overwhelming it would be with unnecessary amplification . The food was okay. My bone in strip ordered medium was well done in the middle and rare in the ends. Husband t-bone was cooked as ordered. Nothing special about the

Been to this establishment three times overtime because of its historical references by Mr B but I dare to say that this steakhouse is not up to today steakhouse standards and cannot keep riding/sleep on the laurels from the past. To tell you the truth.... this renowned establishment (food wise)could use a visit from Gordon Ramsey to whipped back to shape... if you get what I mean... IMO I have had better T-bone steaks from a chain restaurant than from here.

It has been years since I was last at Gorat’s and this visit has made me a true promoter for the place! Last time I was there (probably in 2007) the food was lacking flavor and the restaurant felt stale. This time, however the food tasted great and the dining room felt more open and modern. The server was friendly and attentive and the prices are VERY reasonable. I highly recommend a dinner here!

Waitress brought me a Prime Rib sample as I was deciding between the Prime Rib and Filet Mignon. We decided to split a larger Filet so that was the reason for the sample. Very good promoting the restaurant. It was recommended by a Lincoln Ne resident. We were travelling in for the Husker game. Would come again!

The food was exceptional. The services was the only downfall. Our waitress was very abrupt, and made us feel like she was just trying to turn over tables as quickly as possible- even removing some plates before we were finished with them. Not sure we will be back, but the food was excellent!

Sadly, I think Gorats is past its "sell by date" This is not an inviting place as you walk in. It is in desperate need of a "flip or flop" style makeover, inside and outside.
We had a reservation for 7pm, and arrived 10-15 minutes early. The lady at the front greeted us, and then spent a good 5-10 minutes on the telephone in our full view and we could hear everything.
Our server was great, very friendly, very efficient and took care of us.
The food was OK, nothing to write home about. Presentation was lacking , but everything tasted OK.
This place is old fashioned and clearly appeals to a much older crowd who hanker for the good old days.

This place had a great atmosphere, and amazing wait staff. My wife and myself came here because of food week and we're blown away by the quality of food and service we received. The appetizers were both a delight, the steak was agreed to be the best tasting steak we had ever had the pleasure of eating, and desert beautiful rounded out the meal. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone I know.

As always, Gorat's is one of the greatest steakhouses in Omaha. It was Omaha Restaurant Week with special menus: we both had the 6oz filet. The butcher must not have a good eye for cutting as both were big enough to fill us and have some to take home.
The service was superb. Even on a very busy night, Patricia was friendly, professional, and accurate with our orders. The bartenders make a super martini.
The only negative was the music group in the bar (singer, piano, and sax) was amplified far too much and made conversation in the dining area a little difficult.
We plan to return often.
