    Food was very good. Misty was very friendly and attentive. Only complaint is the bar service before and after dinner was horrible. Bartender was extremely slow and inattentive. Drinks were rather weak too.

    Old school charm and very good service along with a great Jazz trio in the lounge make the place memorable. The steak was very good but didn’t live up to the atmosphere. The sides were classic and well executed

    Though an Omaha native, I've only been to Gorat's maybe twice. Growing up in Omaha, my family were diehard Caniglia supporters. My personal steakhouse favs have been Piccolo's (technically a Caniglia connection), Angie's (a Trentino's connection), Ross', and Brother Sebastian's. My wife only moved to Nebraska a decade ago, so this was a treat for our anniversary. Although the place has been updated a bit, it fortunately still carried its midcentury roots on the outside of the building, a reminder of a more sophisticated era. The dining room and lounge area are now a modern beige color scheme, but considering the size of the area (not that big), I would have stayed in the white shade, giving it more volume. The large pictures in the room are blown up photos of Aksarben Racetrack, an apropos connection to the restaurant's past and using photos instead of paintings keep it feeling modern. Lisa was our hostess and right away I felt "this is the place". The early eateries always made you feel at home and Lisa was no exception to this rule. Alicia was our waitress and was just as comfortable and informative. The menu was pretty basic and kept it to mainly steaks, but then that's the point. My wife ordered the NY strip and I the ribeye. I'm not really a big fan of the "whiskey" ribeye, but I'm not opposed, either. Wife said her strip was the "best steak I've ever had". My ribeye was a little fatty. Not enough to make an issue, truthfully, but it didn't beat Brother Sebastian's (not a whiskey variety). However, it did surpass the whiskey ribeye we'd both tried at The Drover previously. It was a Tuesday so we had a little more time to chat with the ladies and we both enjoyed that. Just a nice quiet anniversary with some laughs and good stories. I would definitely recommend Gorat's, even with the ribeye issue. I'll just try the strip or Mr. Buffet's fav, the t-bone, next time. The food was good, the atmosphere was classic, and the company we kept was peerless.

    The food and service was above approach. The waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. My whiskey ribeye was so juicy and tasty while cooked to order medium rare. I can say it was about the best steak that I have ever had. The ambience of the place was nothing fancy, but a great place filled with local nostalgia for family dinner or informal dinning and get togethers.

    I got the whiskey ribeye. Best steak I've had in a long time. Best onion rings I've ever had in my life. The service was great! They even brought a small birthday dessert out without us asking. That was a nice touch. I've lived in Omaha since 1998, and this is my first time at Gorat's. Excellent first visit.

    We drove down from Sioux City, IA for our anniversary. This was an amazing restaurant. We absolutely enjoyed our meal and couldn’t stop talking about it all night. We will definitely come back again. The steaks were perfectly cooked and fork tender. The flavor was superb. We’ve never had steak that good before.

    Friday night dinner at Warren Buffett's favorite steakhouse. After a very fine martini, I enjoyed the perfectly cooked 6oz filet with salad and baked potato. She had shrimp scampi with several large shrimp and more than enough pasta. Our server, April, was new to Gorat's after 20 years at the just closed Lo Solo Mio. Her experience showed well and we hope we see her again soon.

    I made reservations at Gorat's based on a post by a friend who was in Omaha attending the CWS. We were quickly seated by the hostess in one of the dining rooms that was filled with patrons, many of which were Ole Miss baseball fans like us who had attended the CWS where Ole Miss won the National Championship. Service was not the best as two tables who were seated after us were immediately waited on by their servers. Our server eventually did make her way to our table and we placed our order. Small filet ordered by my wife was great. My son and I ordered the New York strips. He enjoyed his. Mine was tougher than I expected - should have ordered the filet like my wife. Best dish - onion rings. Our meal could have been better with a more attentive server who was busier attending other tables than ours. Overall, even though the service was not as anticipated, the cost of the meal was very reasonable.

    We were disappointed in our dining experience here. We are traveling cross-country and searching out the best steak houses and BBQ joints. We read that Gorat’s was a favorite of Warren Buffett and that it has been an institution in Omaha for 70 years. So, we decided this would be our restaurant in Omaha. Unfortunately, the House Specialty T-Bone steak was overcooked—dry and tough as leather. The Filet Mignon was better—tender and tasty. The onion rings were great. The “loaded potato” was anything but. You got a potato with a small dollop of sour cream and about 3 bacon bits—I am not exaggerating. This was an add-on cost, too. The server offered to take the T-Bone back and bring out another, but we’re believers in “Get it right the first time”. So, maybe some might say “Your bad”. The hostess, Lisa, was the best thing about Gorat’s. She was lively, animated, friendly and eager to make the situation right—hence 3 stars instead of 2 stars. She took one look at the steak and immediately got the manager involved. The manager concurred with Lisa and waived the cost of the steak, making things right. Maybe we ate on an off night.

    Very cold. Three of us ordered prime rib, two medium and one medium rare. They were all identical and we were told that we had all ordered medium rare. Salad good. Dirty martini excellent. Nothing but the martini was memorable.

    Was very disappointed they did not have a lunch menu, just a college World Series menu which was much more expensive. Catering to out of town guests and not thinking about hometown guests is very disappointing and I think is a slap in the face of regular customers. Also this menu change was not shown on their website. Not busy at all and it took a long time for our food to arrive. Will not be going back again as there are many other choices to eat in Omaha.
